This bag was bought for my son in middle school, the shape of the bottom made it a bit to small for his books and binders. My younger son in first grade it is perfect for. I also think it is great for work bag. Price was great especially with a warranty, it's stylish and offers needed compartments. I also bought the Recon for my older son and it is exactly what he needed.

I got caught in the rain with this backpack on my college campus for only 2 minutes and when I got home the entire inside of the backpack was soaked through. I had to blow-dry all of my papers and I had to pay hundreds of dollars to fix my laptop because there was so much water damage. The backpack even had a sleeve for my laptop, suggesting it would be protected. For a backpack that is supposed to be for hiking, and has a laptop sleeve, it is certainly not practical and very misleading.

    Pros

    • Back support
    • Compact
    • good quality
    • Holds what i need

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • books
      • General personal use
      • School

      Comments about The North Face Jester Backpack:

      I use this backpack to carry my school stuff. It holds my laptop, books, and notebooks fairly easily (although I only carry 1-2 textbooks at a time). It is big enough to hold what I want but also fairly compact. I have to do a LOT of walking at my school and it is fairly comfortable. It sits high on my back and has back padding so it promotes good posture. My only complaint is that I wish there was more padding in the shoulder straps. Otherwise a great backpack.

        Comments about The North Face Jester Backpack:

        My husband recently got this pack, and absolutely loves it! The colors are really neat and modern and look bright and rich in person. He takes it to work with him everyday, fits his laptop perfectly in a safe pocket, and packs it up for weekend getaways. Overall, the perfect, everyday pack. Thanks #TNFLocals to help us explore together with these great packs! #AMBSDR

              I use this every day commuting to and from school and work and It's fantastic. Since I live in a rainy city, it's helpful that it's waterproof and even though I'm soaked when I get to work, my books and computer are still safe inside my bag.

                After a few weeks of using the product, the seem on the divider for the laptop sleeve start to come undone. After a few more weeks, the reinforced upper part of the seam is completely removed from the divider itself making it cumbersome to load/unload my laptop into the divider sleeve.

                              I got this backpack in TNF Black for my son in 2nd grade. He absolutely loves it. It's a quality product, and worth every penny.
