Product Info

Is the forecast for your planned hiking day looking like rain? Do you live in Seattle? Do you like to always be prepared? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions (I know I did), then you should totally check out The North Face Base Camp Hot Shot Backpack. Constructed of the same laminated, water-resistant nylon as the legendary Base Camp Duffel, the BC Hot Shot is a bomber daypack that's built to last. It features a laptop / hydration sleeve in the large main compartment and a smaller compartment with organization, because TNF knows that you like to be able to find your stuff. Just in case the 30 L internal volume isn't enough for all of your gear, the Hot Shot has an external webbing daisy chain to clip on extra equipment. Talk about awesome!

    Comments about The North Face Base Camp Hot Shot Backpack:

    I've been using this pack while working in the Peruvian Amazon and am quite pleased with it. The fabric is the cat's meow... it is waterproof and equally important to me, mold resistant.

    While the fabric is waterproof, the zippers themselves are not. I position the point where the zipper pulls meet on the side and not on top so there is less chance of rain penetration. I can trust my MacBook and iPad are secure in their own built in sleeves within the main compartment. I've found the shoulder straps to be very comfortable.

    The only issue I have had thus far is the back gear lash stitching has come lose at two points, even though I have never tied anything to it. There should be a backing on the opposite side so the thread will not pull through so readily. Other than that the pack shows minimal wear and tear.

    All in all a great pack. If I had to replace it today I would look no further than The North Face Base Camp Hotshot again.

        Comments about The North Face Base Camp Hot Shot Backpack:

        I have the older version of this backpack and it is hands down one of the best purchases I have made. My old one does not have an extra tablet pocket, but nevertheless its a great bag. Fits everything I need as a student. I am short, only 5', and as a graduate student I have to carry alot of supplies and books. The padding on the straps is perfect, and really helps alleviate the weight of the bag when it is loaded up. I only have 2 complaints, sometimes my nalgene falls out of the mesh pocket, and this is not 100% waterproof. I used it in heavy rain fall and enough water got in through the zipper seam to ruin my laptop charger. My lap top was safe though in its pocket! In light rain it holds up really well. Great back pack :]

        Base Camp Hotshot

        By 

        from Fort Lee, NJ

        Comments about The North Face Base Camp Hot Shot Backpack:

        This is the one! The backpack that makes me want to carry more than can fit in my pockets just so i have an excuse to wear it. A refined looking all black backpack with a tactical look to it. I've received many compliment already on the look, many asking where I purchased it from since The North Face writing is quite faint, which I love. The size is perfect for a student. Currently in dental school, this backpack accommodates my laptop, lunch, books, iPad and the rest of my essentials with plenty of room to spare. The backpack is completely waterproof, I am tempted to jump into a pool with it on to really test it out, but perhaps later. What I love most is the backpack isn't too rigid nor too soft, it is a balanced firm bag that feels like an extension of your body. An excellent all around backpack, I highly suggest.

        This backpack was worth it. It has kept my things dry and it rains a lot.
