The North Face Vault Backpack is a school backpack when all you desire is a bit of simplicity. With only two zippered compartments to worry about, you won't lose your stuff in a mystery pocket along the way. A 15" laptop fits in the padded sleeve of the main compartment, and your books and lunch fit alongside. The secondary pocket opens nice and wide for viewing pleasure, where your pens, keys, wallet and phone are all neatly organized. Stash a water bottle in the mesh side pocket and a couple of granola bars in the other and jump on the bike or the bus. FlexVent™ suspension with a padded air-mesh back panel keeps everything cool and comfy the whole way to school.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent Bag For The Price First, let me start by saying I have used North Face clothing and equipment (backpacks) for the past 10 to 15 years. They have always proved to be well made, quality products. I bought this bag (the Vault) about a month ago. Upon receiving this bag I immediately noticed that the material seemed lighter-duty and overall felt a little cheaper than the other North Face bags I own. The padding on the shoulders didn't feel as sturdy and the nylon used for the main part of the bag felt thinner and not as sturdy. I don't know if this is actually the case or if it is intentionally made with thinner material to make the bag lighter. I also noticed that the shoulder straps were sewn on crooked, which is rather annoying. Other than that the bag feels as though it is constructed well. The zippers are sturdy and all of the seams appear to be strong. If you're looking for a bag just to throw stuff in and tool around town this is a great choice. If you're looking for something for everyday use, that will stand up to a lot of wear and tear over many, many years, I would suggest checking out another bag. Again, I have only used this for a month, so I don't really know how this bag will hold up in the long run, but comparing this to my other North Face bags it is a bit of a disappointment (in terms of quality) and I will be surprised if this bag will last 10 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value and Service Bought this as a gift for someone. First time I have used your website, and was thrilled at the ease of use, and the fast delivery. Product was very well "depicted" and when it arrived, looked exactly as the picture that I ordered off from. Will definitely use you again in the future. Thanks for such outstanding customer service.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Manufacturing Defect-Strap This backpack is good. It has lots of nifty pockets and zippers and gets the job done when it comes to a school backpack. It had a good run when it was in use. The only issue, mind you, quite a big issue, is the stitching of the straps that attaches them to the body of the backpack. For some reason, after less than a year of use, one of the straps came clean off. It didn't tear (there is no visible damage to the strap or place where it was stitched onto the bag) or go through any distress, but it was as though the strap was not stitched onto the bag correctly, practically slipped off. I've tried to fix it myself but it cannot be done as it is a manufacturing issue a regular person cannot fix. Disappointed as this was my first (and likely last) purchase from TNF that I had to use my first earnings on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack for school We bought this hiking backpack for daily high school use. It is roomy enough for textbooks & a laptop, is light, balanced and sturdy. Has taken abuse and still looks great! A good value & good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome backpack I bought this back pack for my high school son. Was so happy with it I bought another one for my younger son and will be buying a third for my daughter. Perfect for a high school student.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best backpack I've ever had. This is hands down the best backpack under 60$, because it os just relly durable. I wear this backpack to school every day and I wear it after school when I go ride my bicycle. I have tested it while hiking, travelling, doing urban exploration and other stuff. This is the best backpack for an adventurer. I love it!

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.

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

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.
