The North Face Big Shot Laptop Backpack

If you need one backpack for your school or work commute, but you also want the option of using it as daypack on the weekend, the Big Shot Laptop Backpack from The North Face is an ideal solution. In the industry this is called a crossover pack--a versatile design that gives you the functionality of a book bag or school pack, plus outdoor-oriented options for recreational hikes and all-day excursions. The North Face loaded their Big Shot Laptop Backpack with features without making the pack overly cluttered and complex. Inside the main compartment is a padded laptop sleeve that accommodates laptop computers with screen dimensions up to 17 inches--that's significantly larger than the 15-inch screen dimensions found in many laptop bags on the market today. Next to the padded laptop sleeve is a hydration tube port that allows you to swap out your laptop for a hydration reservoir (sold separately) during weekend trips. Ergonomic FlexVent injection-molded shoulder straps and BackSaver bottom panel help optimize the ergonomic comfort, even when you overload the Big Shot Laptop Backpack with all the work you forgot to finish over the weekend.

I have had this back back for a few months now. I have not negative to say about it. its been through rain and shine with me protected my belongings. it carries everything feels great. I mostly use it for school and light travel, so i can not really speak to any other use then that. I sometimes take the bus to school, bike or drive and use it in all forms. i use it with a light load and packed completely and it has shown no signs of wear. the only thing I really dont like about the bag is the loops in the front i have no clue what they are for but everything else has came in handy .

Great 32L laptop bag ...
Great laptop bag but a bit long for me, suppose to fit a 17" laptop. Padded back and strap makes for comfortable load. I liked the look of the front of the bag as well as compression straps all around . Overall a great 32L pack.

Great choice
After shopping several stores for a large sturdy backpack, I was happy to find this one. It has good weight distribution and large adjustable straps. It fits all my items with room to spare. It's built to last.

Great Backpack
I'm in my second year of college and have needed a heavy duty backpack for some time now. I was hesitant to buy the Big Shot at first due to it's high price, but I'm glad I made the decision to purchase it! It fits all my books that I need for class, but the way the pockets for pencils and other small items is designed in the inside front flap causes the book bag to collapse when no books are in it. Other than this, the Big Shot backpack is a great choice and I hope to get many years of use out of it!

Great Purchase for Teenage Son
Purchased for my 16 year old son. This backpack is sharp looking, durable, and large enough for a laptop and plenty of other supplies. The Big Shot backpack, like all Northface backpacks, is very well designed with lots of storage space and pockets. The Big Shot has extra padding on the back and great padding on the shoulders for heavy loads, which is a must-have for high school. Lengthwise, this backpack is somewhat longer so it may not work well for everyone, but with the "dudes" at school, it was a major hit.
