Great Backpack for the Money
This bag is extremely versatile which is a big plus in my book. As a graduate student I really like that the main compartment has a laptop sleeve that fits my 17'' screen perfectly, has enough room for several large books, a two inch binder, and room to pack in all the computer chargers and USB cords. The two additional pockets inside the main compartment allow me to carry my compact camera and mp3 player with ease. The pencil and pen organizer is well laid out and has the compartment it's in is large enough to accommadate a small notebook or two. As a hiker this compartment is prefect for storing all my day hiking supplies, like food, hydration sleeve, extra clothing, first aid supplies, etc. With the additional bungee straps and side compression straps I can carry much more than just the expected day hiking gear like a sleeping pad, sleeping bag, and a larger coat. There also two additional mesh pockets for extra water bottles. There is also a small zipper pocket at the top of the bag which to me isn't deep enough to store much more then a set keys. The construction and fit is what to excepted from Northface. No major flaws to speak of really. And for the price I expect this backpack will last many years to come.

This is a pretty good backpack for normal use. However, please note that it is LONGER/TALLER than usual. That is, when I put a textbook inside it, it takes up only 2/3 of the space vertically, and theres 1/3 space available still. In addition, there are only 2 major compartments. The largest one has two small pouches for storage, the smaller one has a few pouches and a mesh pouch. It will store a lot, but it won't carry many small things. Lastly, there are a good amount of straps. The waist strap can be removed. The chest strap (connected via the shoulder straps) cannot. Just letting you know. Nonetheless, very good bag

This Heckler backpack has been with me at school and whenever I travel. It is extremely durable. When I am at school I am usually able to carry my notebooks (3-4) and my laptop, with water, and my personal items. The backpack does not feel heavy, and it supports my back all throughout the day while I am carrying it. When I am traveling, it carries everything I need for the whole day and then some. It has many convenient pockets, and I absolutely love it.

Great College Pack!
I am a student at a university and this was just the backpack I needed. It safely protects my laptop and holds all my books. The side straps really take pressure off of your back for heavier loads. I really like that it is water resistant so I don't need to worry about my laptop getting destroyed. It's a great looking backpack and this price will not be beat anywhere else. I strongly suggest this backpack.

nice design, size, packable and comfortable. I like the color and it is good choice for a man and woman too. I had no opportunity yet to test it but I'm sure it will be perfect during my mountain trips. I would buy it again!
