I bought the North Face backpack three years ago and I am loving it. It is my first North Face backpack and was the most expensive backpack I have ever bought. But, it worth every penny I paid for because of its size, durability and design. I have been using this backpack for school, travelling, grocery and outdoor activities and it is still going strong. This design features a laptop sleeve which is great to store a laptop while you travel. It could store a lot of weight and the strap is still able to withstand that amount of weight amazingly. The small compartment on the front side is great for storing small items and it is very secured. I will never hesistate to get another North Face backpack if this one bite the dust because of the fantastic built quality.
