AMAZING

By

Comments about The North Face Isabella Backpack - Women's:

I bought this backpack for college. I was skeptical about the size but it was totally big enough to fit my laptop, 4 books, and 4 notebooks and with room to spare. It sits perfectly where it feels like barely any weight is on my shoulders. It also has easy to reach pockets for convenience. Would 100% recommend!

Just what a teacher needs

By

Comments about The North Face Isabella Backpack - Women's:

I already own the women's Recon backpack, which I continue to use for overnight trips or when I have a ton to take to work.

I needed a backpack that would be smaller than the Recon bag, since travel on crowded buses and trains is nearly impossible without getting dirty looks when I use the Recon.

I teach in an elementary school, so there is an enormous amount of paperwork. Sometimes, I have to pack breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Isabella backpack surprised me. It holds a lot, including many books and folders with the kids' work. In addition, it can still hold heavy duty glass tupperware. The side pocket is not that small either. With all the books and paperwork, the bag can still hold a 20 oz Kleen Kanteen comfortably. Although it doesn't have the drawstring to tighten around the bottle, the height of the pocket doesn't allow for it to fall out easily. Maybe if you hold the bag upside down....

Prior to purchasing this backpack, I would stuff all the things I mentioned previously into a cloth reusable grocery bag. That got way too heavy for my one shoulder. The Isabella bag distributes weight wonderfully. You wouldn't even know it was the same load. My shoulders aren't tired and I don't return home exhausted after a long commute with this load on my back. I've tried bags from other popular hiking brands, but somehow, they didn't provide the same comfort and style North Face does.

There are a ton of pockets, two without zippers. I don't think security is a huge issue. The larger stretchy mesh pocket is tucked in, so someone would have to really dig in to get your things. If you don't notice that, you have other more pressing issues to worry about. The other unzippered pocket is for your bottle. The other pockets are great. The zippers to the smaller pockets(top of the bag and on the opposite side of the water bottle)are somewhat concealed. You can tuck the zippers into the fabric. The bag is well made and makes it hard for people to pick pocket you.

Super stylish, but not much room

By 

from Memphis, TN

Comments about The North Face Isabella Backpack - Women's:

I just got the backpack in and love it! However, I wanted to make sure my books fit before ripping off the tags, and all I could fit in the large compartment was my 2" 3-ring binder. I'm so disappointed it's not little roomier to hold one more 1" binder and a notebook. I would think it would be perfect otherwise.

    Comments about The North Face Isabella Backpack - Women's:

    I saw this backpack online and was so excited to order it, but knew that I'd prefer to see it in person before purchasing. Fortunately, my hometown just got its own North Face store, and I was happy to see that it carries almost all of the colors available online excluding the "Cosmic Blue" version.

    This is a very sleek, sturdy, and functional bag. All of the pockets are not only easily accessible but also reasonably sized. I'm not worried about any of my things (mostly small electronics and office accessories) not fitting or disappearing into an giant abyss, and the color combinations are such that I wouldn't sacrifice my business casual look either. While I normally only pack my wallet, planner, Kindle, iPhone and charger in this bag, there's still ample space for my 13-inch MacBook Pro and charger, and depending on how I pack everything, even an extra change of clothes. I totally foresee this not only being my go-to bag for work, but also travel.

    It should be noted that there are a couple outer pocket-like areas that are not entirely secure (no zippers), such as on the right-hand size where a rather small/skinny water bottle or umbrella might fit and underneath the NF logo on the back. Ultimately, I do not see those as huge downsides. Just don't put super bulky items in those areas where they can pop out, and you should be good to go.

      Comments about The North Face Isabella Backpack - Women's:

      I use this for commuting to work. It is a great bag for that purpose - not so bulky as to be annoying on mass transit, carries just what I need for work (laptop, phones, a notebook, plus my wallet, keys, sunglasses, water, and lip balm), and minimal and sleek so as to still look professional (for a casual work environment). Also, the black with gold detail is on point!

      This. Is. Love.

      Comments about The North Face Isabella Backpack - Women's:

      I love the Northface brand. This is my third backpack that I've purchased from the store and I love it! I intentionally bought it to wear for the Texas State Fair bc it felt more secure and safe. And for when I'm taking my baby cousins out to play, this is so convenient and not bulky. Now I wear it to class as well. It fits my 3 subject notebooks, iPad, other school supplies, and my 15' laptop too! I can't stress how much I love this backpack.
