Rated 1 out of 5 by from THE STRAP STARTED RIPPING TOO SOON I loved this backpack when I first got it. I am I highschool student. I got this just before the school year, and school started at the beginning of August. It is now mid September, and the right strap is only holding on by two threads. I carry the average weight in this backpack for a highschool student, so I don't see a reason why mine is ripping while my friends' bookbags (also Northface, just different styles) have held up for two and counting school years. Mine hasn't even made it through a semester. I do not have another bookbag that I can use in the meantime if I send this one back to get repaired or replaced. I was told that this would be a great backpack, and I was expecting to get several school years out of it. I am very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack Awesome quality! Extremely comfortable! One thing I really like is how the laptop pocket is lifted a bit from the bottom of the bag so when you put the bag down, your laptop doesn't hit the ground. The two side pockets are deep so your stuff doesn't bounce out. Would like to see water resistance feature, even though its already somewhat doing that; I've worn in the rain for 20 minutes and nothing inside gets wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No other backpack but NorthFace I bought a NorthFace Vault backpack for my nephew back when he was in high school nearly 12 years ago. He is now a college graduate and has been in the workforce in NYC for about 3 years. He used the same backpack constantly through all those years and told me just before Christmas this year that the backpack finally needed replacing but he wanted one as close to the original as we could find. I bought him this new NorthFace Vault backpack similar to his first and he loves it. These are extremely durable and comfortable backpacks and I highly recommend them !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backpack I bought this backpack about a month ago. The build, feel, and look are perfect. I was afraid that it wouldn’t have enough space for everything that I carry on a day to day basis, but I have not had any issues with space. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looks and works great Feels great and looks great. Holds all of my books for classes and even some clothes. If folded the bag stays compact. For a two zipper bag, there is a lot of space. I don't like the the velcro on the inside. Looks like it's just slapped on there. Could have at least x box stitched it. My 15 inch gaming laptop is a tight fit but could my laptop is a bit big for a 15 inch. Maybe could have had a bit of stretch to the laptop pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High value for your money I have a problem in my back and I´m an executive. The other day I bought a very expensive business backpack but the first time I added more weight with some books it was terrible for my back. I went at this very moment to a The North Face store and asked for a Vault, because I already know it. I bpught it and transfer everything and went out very comfortable .... a terrific product for the third of the cost of the other one...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was awesome at first but... I bought this backpack to use for school and I had it for 3 years. For all the three years it was perfect and served its purpose well. After exactly 3 years everything suddenly started going downhill. The bottom started to tear and the laptop pocket too. The zipper on the outside pocket broke as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Manufacturing Defect-Strap This backpack is good. It has lots of nifty pockets and zippers and gets the job done when it comes to a school backpack. It had a good run when it was in use. The only issue, mind you, quite a big issue, is the stitching of the straps that attaches them to the body of the backpack. For some reason, after less than a year of use, one of the straps came clean off. It didn't tear (there is no visible damage to the strap or place where it was stitched onto the bag) or go through any distress, but it was as though the strap was not stitched onto the bag correctly, practically slipped off. I've tried to fix it myself but it cannot be done as it is a manufacturing issue a regular person cannot fix. Disappointed as this was my first (and likely last) purchase from TNF that I had to use my first earnings on.
