Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backpack My 13 inch MacBook Pro fits perfectly. Ample storage for essentials. I was looking for the perfect back pack and I found it. It is very well made and durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit longer and heavier than I had hoped, but slim I should preface that I'm only 5" so most things are too big and heavy for me anyway. I was really hoping the microbyte would be the solution. However, It's quite heavy-- and that has to do with the back compartment that supports your laptop when fully opened. As a comparison my 28L mountain co-op bag is significantly lighter. It also, as others have said, hits my bum which isn't terrible, but it doesn't sit on the middle of my back, like it should and because of this, I find that the weight distribution is off ... this just might be because of my height. The gender specific straps are nice and the slimness is also great. I was really worried by other reviewers who made it seem like you couldn't fit anything in the bag! It holds my 13" laptop, textbook, a couple full file folders, makeup bag, and with room to spare. Sure, it is not ideal for long nature hikes where you need gear (why would you want a TSA approved bag for that anyway?!) or want to pack a change of clothes (although I would venture to say that you could fit a pair of shoes in there)... but perfect for business casual look. If I had a chance to try it out before purchasing I would have kept looking for something a bit smaller...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Material used for the product Bag looks great because of the material used is pretty good and smooth. Perfect for laptop and gadgets to fit in. Little space for personal items too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome backpack for my laptop! Absolutely love this bag! My laptop fits perfectly in the sleeve. It's very comfortable to wear and and has plenty of room for other items. Not only is it comfortable and roomy but it's actually a good looking bag. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a medium sized backpack to stuff their laptop in or to use outdoors. It is good for both those simply using it for school or the outdoors. Hope you enjoy it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great size, NO WATER BOTTLE HOLDER This is a great size pack for frequent travelers. I use this for business and travel regularly through airports. It is lightweight and durable. The only complaint is that it will not hold a water bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Perfect for my use case. Want to keep weight to a minimum.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small pack, no water bottle holder Great pack, but lacks a water bottle holder. Bought this to use for college and it can barely hold my laptop, charger, and a notebook. Forget trying to carry textbooks in this backpack. For a commuter who only carries a few things, it would be a good bag.

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.
