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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from This product is pretty good and efficient I bought this backpack for my last year of highschool and I was slightly disappointed when I found out that it wasn't as big as I thought it would be ( I guess I should have payed more attention to the details on the website ). However, it surprisingly fits all of my folders, binders (2 1" binders), I pad, planner , etc. , although the pens and pencils fall out very easily from their pockets when you put a lot in them. Overall the fit is very tight as I tried to pack all my things in them, and there is no space for textbooks. The backpack does seem to have strong quality material, but I would recommend it for someone who doesn't have to fit a lot of items in it

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 Perfect backpack for campus life and more When I bought this backpack I wanted something that would look sleek and go well with my other Northface apparel. Something that wasn't too bulky but would have the space I needed for my school supplies. After ordering I was worried maybe it might have been too small but when it arrived it was the perfect size and looked even better in person. The pockets for water bottles are deep, the zippers feel crisp and high quality. And quality all over can really be seen in this backpack. And the price makes you able to get super high quality without feeling like you've spent too much. 10/10 would buy this backpack again. Couldn't be happier.
