Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we were looking for My daughter has been wanting a North Face back pack for school, but they tend to be pricey. This was a good deal and she absolutely loves it. There is plenty of room for everything she needs to carry. She actually packed everything she needed for a weekend away in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing price for what it is! I am very pleased with not only the product itself but the website! I was skeptical considering how a lot of the items are discounted... were they all fake? NO! They are legit and I am very happy with my new backpack. The quality is just as I expected because it is a north face. I would highly recommend this product and using the website for my future purchases. VERY PLEASED 10/10!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile I bought this backpack planning to use it for work. I ended up liking the backpack so much that I find myself using it for weekend trips and hiking as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Day Pack... I needed a mid size to small pack for every day use (towel and stuff for the pool or beach, small day hikes for carrying my stuff and for the kids, etc) and this fits the bill perfectly. Has a laptop sleeve so I carry my lapper or iPad too if need be. My son also has a black Jester pack for school and it's held up very well after 2 years of almost daily use. Got this orange color on sale and it's up to personal taste but I like it a lot.

Aside form the color choices, is this men's version any different than the woman's version? Is it larger? Thanks!

Asked by: bp10
Hey BP, thanks for asking! The men's version is the same size and is really just "unisex." The difference between the men's and women's is that the women's shoulder straps are shaped a bit differently to accommodate different shaped shoulders/torsos. Most men and women should be able to comfortably wear the men's version.

Asked by: nick657
Hey Nick, The Black Jester Backpack listed on this page looks just like the other ones pictured, just black with a white North Face logo, it does not look as it is pictured here.

Is this water repellent/water proof?

Asked by: Sandy
Great question Sandy! This backpack is definitely not water proof, just because of the zipper design. As for being water repellent; I would consider this pack more water resistant, again, not water proof. I would be worried about anything unprotected inside getting wet after a few minutes in a decent rain. Hope this helps!

Does the backpack stand on its own or is the base slanted letting the bag fall forwards?

Asked by: acd21
Hiya acd21, thanks for your question! The backpack cannot stand on it's own, so it would probably fall over if it was full. Hope this helps!

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.
