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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice minimal pack... Needed a small pack to hold a laptop or tablet and clothes for hospital stays and this fits the bill. Comfortable without too many things to adjust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality backpack and super comfortable to wear! I bought this to take hiking with me at Glacier and it was so comfortable to wear. Nice padding in the back. Not huge but had enough room for me to pack my food, extra clothes and a jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great backpack, ok for school I'm a college student and I bought this bag for school, its a high quality bag (it has a sternum strap!) but it's very tall and not quite deep enough for a bunch of books. This keeps the weight distribution great, but its kind of inconvenient to have your misc. stuff piled on top of the books and notes you have to access. It is a nice versatile bag i can take when i go camping and hiking though, so overall it's worth it for the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent Bag For The Price First, let me start by saying I have used North Face clothing and equipment (backpacks) for the past 10 to 15 years. They have always proved to be well made, quality products. I bought this bag (the Vault) about a month ago. Upon receiving this bag I immediately noticed that the material seemed lighter-duty and overall felt a little cheaper than the other North Face bags I own. The padding on the shoulders didn't feel as sturdy and the nylon used for the main part of the bag felt thinner and not as sturdy. I don't know if this is actually the case or if it is intentionally made with thinner material to make the bag lighter. I also noticed that the shoulder straps were sewn on crooked, which is rather annoying. Other than that the bag feels as though it is constructed well. The zippers are sturdy and all of the seams appear to be strong. If you're looking for a bag just to throw stuff in and tool around town this is a great choice. If you're looking for something for everyday use, that will stand up to a lot of wear and tear over many, many years, I would suggest checking out another bag. Again, I have only used this for a month, so I don't really know how this bag will hold up in the long run, but comparing this to my other North Face bags it is a bit of a disappointment (in terms of quality) and I will be surprised if this bag will last 10 years

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.
