The North Face Router Backpack is a school backpack for heading to school and even airplane travel. At 35 liters, it's the largest backpack by The North Face and holds up to a 17 inch laptop in the padded, fleece lined laptop specific compartment that even lies flat when heading through airport security checkpoints. Next to the laptop is a second compartment, a solid place for folders, binders, or just a pile of clothing. The front compartment houses a padded, fleece-y sleeve for your tablet or e-reader, because there is no such thing as too many electronics these days. Yep, that's right, I said it. The front stash can even hold onto your phone if you'd like to clear up pocket space on your jeans. Front vertical zips stash even more gear or maybe a pile of candy, so you'll always have a snack close by. To make sure your shoulders and back can handle it all, the FlexVent™ suspension provides injection-molded shoulder straps and a padded mesh back with a spine channel to keep it cool through the halls as well as the airports.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Have been using it for international travel, got trapped in 3 hours of rain, and though it's not water proof everything inside stayed relatively dry. Comfortable, plenty of excellent storage spots and it looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing backpack This a very well constructed backpack that is also very easy to look at. It's very easy to overlook how many compartments that it has. I love the fleece lined compartments as well. The padding on the back is more than sufficient and is not so hard on the back. You will not be dissapointed with this pack for school or traveling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite backpack! I have two different colors of this same backpack. I bought another one because I enjoy it so much. It expands to accommodate all of my needs from day-to-day work and commuting to weekend vacations. The ergonomic straps are comfortable and supportive. You'd also be surprised that I have utilized that added whistle buckle feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful day pack I use this pack riding on my motorcycle and anytime I need to bring a pack with me. I had the Boxshot before this one which interestingly is very similar to the Router. There is plenty of space and it is very comfy to wear. This is definitely a pack you will not regret to have.

does the laptop compartment protect all edges of the laptop? or is the top of the laptop exposed each time you open that zipper? I am looking for something that has a separate compartment for a 16" laptop.

Asked by: saloney
That's a great question! The laptop compartment is padded with a sleeve only. So the laptop will be exposed each time you unzip it. The compartment is separate from the rest of the pack, tho. So you would only have to unzip when you were to pull out the laptop. I hope this helps a little!

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"

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.
