Rated 3 out of 5 by from great except for breaking suspended straps!! I got this backpack in the middle of the '16-'17 school year after my old backpack broke. I ordered this one and it was great for a while but around October the straps began to slowly rip. Granted I do carry a heavy load each day but not so heavy that this backpack should have worn out so quickly. Now, one of the straps is hanging by three threads and I am hoping it can survive the rest of the year! Besides the straps, the rest of the backpack is in pretty much perfect condition aside from several tears in the side pouches. Because of the overall quality, I will most likely repurchase a North Face backpack for next year, but this time without the suspended straps!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Quality I wish I could give this review a 0/5. Previously I had a North Face Borealis backpack for 7 years. The padding wore down but after 7 years it was justifiable to buy a new one. Last year I bought a new one an 3 months in I had to sent it in because the strap had broke off. After I sent it in I thought it was fixed or so I thought. So now a year after not only is the strap ripping that I sent in to get fixed but the stitching of the backpack is coming undone and the backpack is starting to tear apart. I did not pay this much money to have my backpack fall apart so many times. I tried to talk to customer service about replacing the backpack and they made it clear that I had to send it in and they would decide if it should be replaced or simply fixed. Clearly it should not be just fixed if this is the second time in two years. Also about myself I am a college student that uses this backpack for school and work. Most days I go straight from class to work. That being said as a college student working a low paying job I bought this backpack to last not to send in every few months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, but could be better I have used this backpack for four years of school, and many flights. This backpack is good for carrying smaller loads, but I cannot fit more than two binders in it. The inside pockets have all ripped, but they were very nice while they lasted. The backpack is very comfortable to wear, and I really like the design. I will be getting another north face backpack, but it will be a larger one. I reccommend it for a carry on or a commuting bag, but it can be a bit small for students.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from THIS PRODUCT IS UNREALIABLE this product worked well 50% of the time, but when i needed to put more binders in or when things got heavy, it did not hold. The backpack strap broke after only 8 months of use. It was not roomy and is defiantly not durable. Luckily I was in school when this happened but if i was mountain climbing, my supplies would have dropped down the mountain and i would die of starvation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best backpack I have ever owned This backpack has lasted me about 3 years now and I use it almost every day! I love it and am going to buy another one! I have used it for everything from traveling across the world to hiking to school books and it works for it all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this backpack makes me hate school a little less i have used this product for school for almost a year, and honestly it makes me feel so organized and prepared for every day because of the vast amount of storage space! carrying what feel like 20 pounds of books and things, i wouldn't call it comfortable, but the back support makes it bearable. overall super cute and stylish too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product for school. I love this backpack because it can fit everything I need for work and school in it. It is very comfortable if you need to wear it for a long period of time. In my school so many people have this backpack and we would all recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHY IS THIS BACKPACK SO HARD?! I should have listened to the other bad reviews. I had high hopes for this though because there were also so many good reviews. THIS BACKPACK IS EXTREMELY STIFF! It is NOT comfortable at all! The back and the shoulder straps are sooo hard. I'm so disappointed. I also wish the backpack would stand up by itself if not leaned against a wall. For an expensive item, you would expect better. They really need to redo this design. I was really looking forward to this backpack, I'm so sad! I'm sure there are better options out there with other brands. I'm going to return this and find something else.
