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 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was awesome at first but... I bought this backpack to use for school and I had it for 3 years. For all the three years it was perfect and served its purpose well. After exactly 3 years everything suddenly started going downhill. The bottom started to tear and the laptop pocket too. The zipper on the outside pocket broke as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High value for your money I have a problem in my back and I´m an executive. The other day I bought a very expensive business backpack but the first time I added more weight with some books it was terrible for my back. I went at this very moment to a The North Face store and asked for a Vault, because I already know it. I bpught it and transfer everything and went out very comfortable .... a terrific product for the third of the cost of the other one...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack Awesome quality! Extremely comfortable! One thing I really like is how the laptop pocket is lifted a bit from the bottom of the bag so when you put the bag down, your laptop doesn't hit the ground. The two side pockets are deep so your stuff doesn't bounce out. Would like to see water resistance feature, even though its already somewhat doing that; I've worn in the rain for 20 minutes and nothing inside gets wet.

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"

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.
