Really great bag build quality-wise, but the one thing that could have made it 5 stars is to have some extra space/protection for the top edges of the laptop compartment – if you've got a 15inch laptop it is very tight at the top, so there's pretty much no protection for the top corners other than the material of the bag itself – it's got great suspended padding at the base, but nothing at the top – what's the point in that? If they'd put in a strip of neoprene padding in the top section by the zip it would be complete.

I used it as a carry-on bag for a trip to New Zealand and could not be happier. It is a good size and collapsible and therefore can stretch to fit more or be compacted to fit more comfortably into tighter spaces. It is able to carry a 15" laptop in the laptop sleeve and is still spacious enough to fit in other clothing items, shoes or other electronic items. There are two zipped compartments, one large main compartment with the padded laptop sleeve, and a smaller front compartment also containing various sized pockets for pens and other items. It seems ideal for use commuting, travelling, at school and undertaking outdoor activities such as hiking.
The straps and back of the rucksack are padded and extremely comfortable when walking and carrying for long periods of time or for long distances. The zips are large and of high quality which suggest it will handle general wear and tear very well.
I also considered the karrimore urban rucksack as a cheaper alternative but found the material of the bag and zip of a much lower quality and susceptible to rips. I therefore chose the more expensive North Face bag and I believe I made the right choice and am extremely pleased with my choice.
Highly recommended.

I was fed up of buying cheap rucksacks that would start to fall apart after 6 months so opted for one of these.

Have to say I am very pleased with it, good quality and waterproof. Comfortable to wear.

Only complaint is the high price, but I guess you pay for what you get.

I travel by motorbike daily to work and also travel. I found this to be adequately shower proof, and the range of pockets within were good for the things I need to carry. The laptop pocket with padded base is particularly good.
Only thing I'd say could be better is the handle the top, as I put a lot in(weight) sometimes it's a bit hard on your hands. So a better handle would make it perfect for me.

Well padded pouch that fits my 13' Macbook air and a smaller one that fits my iPad perfectally also so comfey to use and I love the colour only thing that bugs me is the wais straps are so long and if I don't do them up (which I don't for day to day use) the straps dangle guite low. Apart from that great purchase!

Great for it's purpose as a school bag; laptop fits (very) snugly and very stylish (which is the most important factor) and comfortable. It's not a huge space so needs constant editting but that's good as I don't want him lugging a library around all day.
