Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I actually bought this specifically as a carry-on for air travel. I thought the shape and depth of the pockets would be perfect for laptop, books, etc. and then I wouldn’t have to unpack or wash my hiking day pack to travel. I was right! It was easy to keep things organized, remove my laptop at security, etc. I’m really happy with my purchase. There are two minor things I would change: the straps- first by adding a hip support belt and second by adding a little more padding to the straps. Even without these though I’m very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely sleek backpack This is an amazing backpack. This is something I feel that's stylish enough to wear to a client as well as functional enough to bring while traveling to Australia from the states. There are plenty of functional pockets and great room. It wears high on the back and is SUPER comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional & Rugged - Love this design I use this bag to travel and work. It holds my two laptops, a camera, chargers, watercolors and wallet. it's easy to unpack at TSA and looks great in the office and while I'm in the field. I love the clean look of the bag with no outward facings pockets. The gold hardware is great - heavy & high quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique and high quality I travel a lot and was looking for a compact and less casual looking backpack. This backpack is everything I wanted except it is a little narrow and long. It would be perfect if it were an inch wider. But the quality of North Face backpack is there! I love the silver color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional & Sleek I purchased this backpack for both domestic & international travel. The design and functionality easily translate from a mountain hike to jaunting around cities as a tourist. When traveling, I use this pack in lieu of a purse, as it's far more comfortable to carry, and I can carry my larger water bottles, too. It's an added bonus that the sleek design doesn't feel overtly "outdoorsy" or compromise looking fashionable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pass on this pack I really wanted to like this pack, and there are certainly parts of it to love. The design, comfort, and overall concept are wonderful. Unfortunately, there are just some realities that make it unusable for me. I am returning this week. I bike commute and was planning on using this pack for commuting and general use. First, there is no way to access any part of this pack without taking it off. Even to get your water bottle or u-lock out of the side pockets, you have to take off the backpack. The side pockets come up way to high that you can't physically reach what is in them. Second, whatever you put in the side pockets takes exactly that amount of space out of the main pocket. The pockets don't stretch out, but rather just move in the pack. Your 28 liter bag become 24 liters almost instantly if you're trying to carry a water bottle and a coffee mug. The big pocket is awesome otherwise. Very easy to get into. The organization pocket is ok, but you can only unzip it really from one side. Also, even if you use the organization components, it is still a pretty far reach to grab anything in that pocket. The small pocket on the front of the pack is also not that accessible if you have stuff in your side pockets. It is hard to unzip, and I found it to be quite useless. Overall, this pack is lovely to wear on a bike, but there is little other functionality. Even trying to get a drink of water while walking is difficult, and to me that is just ridiculous. Also, very small thing - the zippers make so much noise when you walk with it. I've tried to adjust to not make so much noise but no luck.

Does this backpack hold 15" laptop? The product description says up to 15", but the product specs say 13".

Asked by: Y Zhang
Hey there! Great question! We verified this with our friends at The North Face, who know everything. Yes, this pack does hold a 15" laptop. The laptop compartment is 11 x 18", so it should comfortably fit a 15" laptop. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking! We're going to make sure this information is clear on this product page, so we don't confuse our customers!

I know this is spec’d As a women’s model. What make it gender specific? I like the price better than the men’s version. Any reason a guy couldn’t use this?

Asked by: Skibeegeebee
Hey there! A lot of manufacturer's try their hand at gender specific designs. In this case, this is simply a backpack. You aren't going to have to worry too much about torso size to hip placement and shoulder strap curvature because this isn't a technical piece of gear. In this case, this is probably more or less called "women's" because the color choices and nothing specific to anatomical ergonomics. Wear it, man!

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.
