The North Face Router Backpack is a school backpack for heading to school and even airplane travel. At 35 liters, it's the largest backpack by The North Face and holds up to a 17 inch laptop in the padded, fleece lined laptop specific compartment that even lies flat when heading through airport security checkpoints. Next to the laptop is a second compartment, a solid place for folders, binders, or just a pile of clothing. The front compartment houses a padded, fleece-y sleeve for your tablet or e-reader, because there is no such thing as too many electronics these days. Yep, that's right, I said it. The front stash can even hold onto your phone if you'd like to clear up pocket space on your jeans. Front vertical zips stash even more gear or maybe a pile of candy, so you'll always have a snack close by. To make sure your shoulders and back can handle it all, the FlexVent™ suspension provides injection-molded shoulder straps and a padded mesh back with a spine channel to keep it cool through the halls as well as the airports.

FEATURES of The North Face Router Backpack

  • The FlexVent suspension system boasts custom injection-molded shoulder straps, a padded mesh back panel with a spine channel and a wicking lumbar panel for maximum support and ventilation
  • Dedicated, lay-flat, fleece-lined laptop compartment allows for protected, checkpoint-friendly travel
  • Secondary compartment for books and binders
  • Padded, fleece-lined tablet sleeve located in the front compartment for quick access
  • Front compartment has internal organization with a fleece-lined media pocket, secure zippered pocket and elastic webbing for cord management
  • Reflective bike-light loop, reflective water bottle tabs and reflective shoulder strap webbing create 360 degrees of reflectivity
  • Two water bottle pockets, made with Teksever fabric, discreetly hold their contents
  • External fleece-lined pocket for sunglasses or electronics
  • Two external vertical zippered pockets

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Bad Great for long weekend road trips. Great for a carry on bag when flying. Considering how much the bag can hold, I appreciate the sturdiness in the zippers, stitching at the comfortable straps on the back. I use this bag for work/travel combos and even then there are more components than I know what to do with. The size can be deceiving, the main compartment is a lot deeper and wider than you think when you start filling it up. Along with the Duffel Bag (size small), these two make a great 1/2 combo for travel up to a week or more without having to check in a bag at the airport. Considering how much I travel, this is a fantastic advantage and money saver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will buy another North Face Backpack. I use this product for school and frequent trips. This backpack contains multiple compartments which is great when I have to carry loads of school work or clothes when I'm on a trip. The Flex-Vent material truly does provide a steady airflow through the middle back to keep you cool when it's hot and the addition padding located at the lower portion of the backpack provides excellent lumbar support. With all honesty, I believe that this backpack has no flaws. The material is of extremely high quality, the workmanship put into this backpack could have only come the best of hands, and the design could have only come from the brightest minds that The North Face has to offer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essentially everything I needed! Great for everyday use. I travel often and having the TSA Friendly option is great. I also commute a lot. Nearly perfect backpack for all modern needs. Enough pockets and sleek design. Only problem I have is the straps, even though they are wide, it isn't very supportive. The pressure still concentrates in the middle and doesn't spread out as much as it looks like it would. North face tried to lighten the weight by putting foam or light material inside but it would be better if it was just thicker or more supportive. It only hurts when I'm carrying a lot of stuff and heavy. Otherwise it is a nearly perfect backpack. Bottom line, I Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cut above the rest! I have owned numerous backpacks through the military and law enforcement. All served a purpose, but this piece does something that the rest did not. The bag has all the function and ruggedness of a tactical bag issued by the government, but also keeps a discrete appearance. In today's climate being able to have the ability to blend in is essential without having to sacrifice function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! I travel 120+ days a year and need to maximize the use of packing space. Checking and picking up bags when flying is a waist of time! I needed a bag that would let me carry my Microsoft Surface4, running shoes, shower kit, two sets of workout gear, a packed meal, work papers, and more. It also needed to fit in the overhead or under my seat for flights. This bag will hold everything and is very well designed for easy access to everything I need. When I'm home, I bike to the office and this bag is great for wearing to the office while biking. Love North Face and this is another great item from them. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from you can't beat this if you're a traveling professional This bag has been amazing for me. I travel for work often and this thing is a lifesaver for the following reasons: -the computer compartment can hold multiple laptops, I always have two in there, and they aren't small -certain pockets are lined with different material, some a typical nylon-like material where I'll stash receipts and others with a soft microfiber fitting for cell phone/iPad/anything delicate where you wouldn't want a screen to be scratched -the third outermost compartment has a million mini compartments where I can easily store toothbrush and floss for the airport, another microfiber one where I put my passport and checkbook if I need it.... You get the idea, it's endless

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survived a Motorcycle Crash, Definitely Buying Another One Recently bought this backpack 2 weeks ago in black and pompeian red and have to say that it is of excellent quality and very spacious and comfortable for my daily work and school needs. Had the unfortunate situation of being in a motorcycle crash with this backpack and have to say I am very impressed for how well the backpack stood up when I slid with it on for approximately 10-15 feet. I am very impressed in quality and am looking forward to buying another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable bag with room for all of my gear I needed a backpack for college. I wanted a bag with separate zip compartments for my laptop, books, writing utensils, other, and the option of tablet storage. Other important features were: non-seethrough water bottle holders, good solid back/waist straps, and a black on black color option- per Army ROTC regulations. I love the grab handles and versatility of the organization pocket. I wish they had a black logo option as I had to color mine with sharpe to comply with Army regs. And had a separate zip mesh compartment in the laptop section to stow laptop cables and power cords. Over all it's a great bag that will hopefully serve me for the next five years of collage.
