Colour: Zinc Grey/Vaporous Grey Verified Purchase
Extremely well made bag has ample space for a commute with a decent amount of kit. The raised laptop pouch holds your device snugly - I have a Dell Latitude 5450 and there is room to spare for a tablet next to it although anyone who has a laptop with with a weight problem may need to stretch the pouch a little.

The colour (Zinc Grey/Vaporous Grey) is nice and a little different although can pick-up some scuffs. But it was the cheapest colour option and I am a little "tight" like that so I lumped for it. I am not complaining though as it looks professional as a North Face rucksack can.

My only gripe (and I would knock a half star off for this) is a lack of additional pocket or divider in the main compartment. For anyone that needs to carry files or books, it would be nice to segregate the laptop charger inside. I tend to keep my smaller items in the fairly spacious outer pocket, but as a result books tend to get a little mangled if languishing around in the bottom of the main compartment. It's not a deal breaker by any means but would be nice to have.

Best of all though is the straps and vented back. It is exceptionally comfortable to wear even when fully loaded. My only wish is that I didn't buy one sooner.

It is a great backpack, just perfect for a daily life.
Notice: it has just no pockets inside the big compartment.

Only issue is it has a round bottom so when you take it off and put it on the floor it doesn't sit upright by itself.
I bought this as a holiday bag that doubles as a flight bag so it's a real niggle.
I like having only 2 zipped compartments so obvious where my passport, money etc is located.
Comfortable on the shoulders. unfussy straps.

On the outside...

The shoulder straps are fairly thick and soft so are pretty comfortable. There is an adjustable chest strap which has an elastic part but there is no waist strap. This is fine though as I don't think it is needed in a backpack of this size. Just might be an issue if you use it for cycling and want the added stability. But for just walking around, this is fine.

There are 2 net pockets either side for water and an attachment point in the middle of the back of the rucksack to attach a light for cycling. The zips are also good quality and open and close easily.

There is also a thick loop on the top of the rucksack which is actually a nice addition and I tend to pick the rucksack up by this quite a lot, just to throw it under a desk or put it on a table.

The side of the rucksack which faces your back is cushioned with a gap down the middle to allow air to get to your back and stop you from sweating. I can't say how cool this has kept me but I haven't had any huge problems although I expect it won't be as good as some of the mesh backs you can get with some more expensive hiking rucksacks. The back is also very rigid which makes the rucksack feel great on your back.

On the inside.....

There are only 2 pockets. A main one which is lined and has a laptop sleeve which can fit a 15.4 laptop nicely. I have also used it to carry my 13 inch macbook whilst inside a laptop sleeve of its own for super protection. I also like that it is a sort of floating pocket with extra cushioning at the bottom such that when your laptop is in, it never hits the bottom of your backpack. This is great because otherwise everytime your backpack is placed down the laptop might take a hit at the bottom.

This backpack was bought by me on "Today's deals" by amazon. The actual price was £55/- but the deal price was £34/-. I bought the backpack for my daily use to commute to work. I am impressed buy the backpack, seems like a premium build. Would recommend the backpack to anyone.

I was disappointed in the quality of this bag especially as it's a North Face product (with the price tag to go with it). I was expecting a heavy duty quality bag that was tough and looked good. This North Face Vault backpack is none of these and feels cheap and lightweight. I recently bought an Osprey carry bag and the different in quality is worlds apart. Everything from the zips to the outer materials, handles and general design of the Osprey bag puts the North Face pack to shame.

The pack is also quite small (far too small for me) so it looks a bit silly on a 6ft3 bloke. It also has a rolled front edge on the bottom so the bag falls forward when you put it down. This is one of those products that rely on the brand name alone rather than reputation for sales. If it didn't have North face on the front I don't think many people would buy it and I know for a fact it would be less than half the price. North Face are getting too mainstream for their own good.

Excellent pack. I threw it around Africa for a month and it stood up to all the abuse. Strong material and straps.
