Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding backpack for college student! Got this as a present for my daughter's 20th birthday and she couldn't be happier. It is well designed, sturdy, and even has a section that holds her Apple laptop in it's protective case. There were many great colors to choose from but this grey goes with everything and also shouldn't show dirt. I expect this will last at least through her final 2 years of college.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag for carying alot! I use this bag for school primarily, or on weekend trips. I am a law student and carry many heavy books on a daily basis along with a laptop. This bag is great for that! The back is very well supported and padded- similar to the backpack I use for rustic camping. If you're not used to a structured and well supported back, with the padding and venting, I can see where this would be weird at first but it really is better for your back in the long run and helps to better distribute the weight you are carrying. I also like the design of the shoulder straps and pads of this bag. They curve inward and I find that they fit my shoulders better. I find that on gender-neutral bags the straps are sometimes wider set, which results in the straps sliding off of one shoulder or the other. I have not found that to be the case with this bag. I chose the heathered grey an magenta bag and while the grey is spot on to the picture, the magenta is a little darker and not a "pink" as the picture on the website. It's still a pretty color and looks great so I wasn't bothered, but if someone was very set on getting a brighter magenta, you might want to see if there is a store by you to view the colors first. Overall, it's a great bag and I find that my shoulders and back are not as sore at the end of a long week compared to your regualr school bag without the structured support of this bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe buy again The straps wore out very fast as well as the water bottle side pouches so bad quality all in all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great except for breaking suspended straps!! I got this backpack in the middle of the '16-'17 school year after my old backpack broke. I ordered this one and it was great for a while but around October the straps began to slowly rip. Granted I do carry a heavy load each day but not so heavy that this backpack should have worn out so quickly. Now, one of the straps is hanging by three threads and I am hoping it can survive the rest of the year! Besides the straps, the rest of the backpack is in pretty much perfect condition aside from several tears in the side pouches. Because of the overall quality, I will most likely repurchase a North Face backpack for next year, but this time without the suspended straps!!

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.
