Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfortable and compact I bought this backpack after my beloved old northface backpack of many years broke. I was expecting the same quality out of this one, and it definitely lives up to my expectations! Super light weight and comfortable, I'm a college student so I carry many things around with me (laptop, books, binders) all over campus and this backpack is great for that. The only downside is that it is smaller than I expected, the backpack gets slightly narrower at the bottom so my things don't all fit in as nice as they did in my old backpack, but maybe that design is what makes it so lightweight. Would buy again and recommend as an everyday use backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy a North Face backpack again and again This backpack is being used by my grandson for school. He is a Senior in high school and he knew he needed a backpack that could hold up to the demands of school and sports. When he got his backpack we were so impressed with the quality of the bag and the room in the backpack that I purchased North Face backpacks for his sister, brother and both cousins. His mom was so impressed I bought her one too. Now the entire family has one for school, work, sports and everyday life. So when I say we would buy this backpack over and over again I meant it! So many styles to choose from that everyone got the perfect backpack for their needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing backpack best I have ever owned I got this backpack because I needed a good quality pack that I could use for work and play. I live in Colorado and love to do outdoors activities. Like hike and ski most weekends. And I also needed the pack to use during the week for my mobile office. It does everything I needed and more. Has plenty of space and pockets for everything I need to haul daily including padded laptop sleeve. It is not a huge backpack and not tiny either. It is the perfect size! The quality is superb. Has a ton of padding on the shoulders and back for all day comfort. I have been searching for a pack like this for a very long time! 10/10!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy I bought the light grey jester backpack. I'm a pretty tall lean guy, and I plan to use this every day to begin college. Looks good, feels good, and fits everything fairly well. The only cons are that the front zipper (the smaller zipper compartment) is pretty small and for some reason it does not run all the way down to the bottom of the backpack, which did occur in an older jester backpack I still own. Also, the pockets for holding water bottles are not as elastic as I thought they would be, and so you'd have to stretch it out carefully to insert a water bottle. This backpack by the way does not fit hydroflasks or anything wide in the waterbottle compartments. It'll only fit a standard Swell size bottle at the most.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good in rain This backpack was clearly never tested in the rain. Even if you use the water resistant spray it leaks. Water runs down the back panel that says "North Face" and pools where it comes to a V under the bungee cord and proceeds to leak and ruin all you books. It needs a drain. My other gripe is the shoulder straps are pretty stiff (as of a few weeks) puts point pressure my trapezoids when carrying alot of weight. Other than my two gripes.... the bag is solid, slim but can carry a normal mount of books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backpack for college life!! I bought a Borealis backpack for my daughter about 5 years ago. It has lasted though 5 years of college. She takes it everywhere. She travels with the soccer team and uses as an overnight bag and carries her laptop in it. Still uses it to this day. I bought a Jester for my 2nd daughter about 3 years ago. Same thing , used in college, carries laptop and loves it. 2nd daughter said the best thing she likes is the straps. They are nice and thick and don't hurt her back. Onto child #3 , I just bought a Jester for my son who will be starting 10th grade in the Fall. Hopefully, he can make his last just as long. All the backpacks are holding up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, amazing This bagpack has been amazing and its price is also very competitive compared to backpacks of similar quality. I can fit my 15.6 inch laptop easily. Although its capacity it 29L, since it has a long design, it is particularly suitable for large laptops (such as 15.6 inch ones) I recommend it over to Patagonia's 30L Chacabuco backpack which could hardly fit my laptop. The navy blue color is gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Day Hike Bag I've been using this bag for day hikes for a couple years now and it is the best. I like to have a lot of organization options when I hike, rather than a bag with just one big pocket. With this bag I can store stuff for easy access in the outside mesh pockets. I can also attach a blanket or towel within the adjustable straps. On the inside, I put all my large items in the big compartment.. and then my snacks, keys, and small items go in the front pocket. The straps on this also have the option to loop through a water bladder hose. All in all, I always go back to this bag when I am hiking! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.
