Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a stylin' 8th grader I bought this as a 14th birthday gift for my nephew. He wanted something stylish that would hold his textbooks and laptop. He was thrilled with this backpack making me the best aunt in the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack This will hold a semesters worth of notebooks (since no high school class has books anymore). The two side books are great for a water bottle and snack (right now protein packs). It has held up well for 6 months and it is stuffed. No tears or broken zippers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recon backpack is awesome. Practical, sturdy, and super spacious. Wore the first one out in nearly 4 years of heavy use (Math major. Need I say more?). It held up great. Signing up for another...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Rucksack I bought this rucksack about a month ago and I find it to be really sturdy, well designed, and comfortable; particularly when carrying around my heavy 15" laptop. I particularly enjoy the shoulder straps which feel sturdy and help to distribute the weight while walking. Unlike other rucksacks the shoulder straps together with the rigid back make it easier to carry around the normal weight (laptop, books, notebooks, etc.). Perhaps the only flaws that I could report about this rucksack is that I would prefer a more secure space for the water bottle on the sides (the bottle can easily slide out) and, particularly, it if it would include a sleeve on the back as to insert it in the handle of the carryon luggage for an easier transportation while at the airport, it does not and it makes it uncomfortable to put it over the carryon handle and try to walk with it. I have not try it under the rain and my opinion could change in case it leaks thus putting my laptop at risk. Other than that it is a good rucksack for a somewhat decent price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great school bag I originally purchased the transit bag for my son for high school and it was gigantic. It was super easy to return and the staff was very helpful in helping us find the perfect size bag. This bag is perfect. It has tons of pockets and can hold his iPad in a padded space. He is very happy with it and it looks like it will last him many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the roominess of it! Feels durable and long l I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband. We go to tons of wrestling tournaments and I thought this would be a great gift for him to haul around his wrestling gear.

- + Size Guide

The North Face Men's Packs

SIZE One Size Small / Medium Large / X-Large
Torso Size (Adjustable) N/A" 15 - 20" 17 - 22"
Torso Size (Fixed) 17 - 20" 16 - 19" 18 - 21"
Hipbelt Size 28 - 40" 28 - 34" 35 - 42"

HOW to MEASURE TORSO SIZE
1. Put your chin to your chest and feel for the big bone protruding on your neck at the top of your spine. That's the C7 vertebra.

2. Feel your hip bone, the top part of this is your iliac crest. Find the spot on your back that is level with the top of this crest.

3. Have someone measure the distance between these two points, following the contours of your spine.


HOW to MEASURE HIPBELT SIZE
1. Measure around your body where the hipbelt will rest while you hike. This should be just above your iliac crest.


NOTES
The size info above is for The North Face technical and backpacking packs. Day packs and work / school packs are offered in One Size, and feature adjustable straps to fit an array of sizes.
