NOT FOR COLLEGE STUDENT
June 13, 2019
This bag is not a bag for you if you are in college. This bag is my third North Face Jester Backpack but my first women's version. The two unisex Jester bags I have are perfect. I purchased this bag wanting to change up a bit and get a black bag. Not knowing I would sacrifice so much space.
I've used this backpack for less than a week for school( sophomore in college 4th day of classes), and the chest straps( that I do not use) are already showing significant signs of ware not to mention the bag lacks soo much space that I've stretched it to the point where you can see the seams. There are also strands of string hanging from the pack. FROM ONLY 4 DAYS OF USE.
I've always loved North Face products and valued them for their durability, but after this purchase, I will not be buying North Face Backpacks anymore. For reference, the only thing in the main compartment of my bag is two-three subject 5 Star notebooks ( most of the time there is only one), one compensation notebook, a 13in MacBook air ( 2018 so you know it is not that big) and at times a very small textbook. Everything that I carry in the front pocket is pictured. I am not one for abusing my back, and I try to bring the least amount of stuff possible to school.
I can only say that the bag fits my back very well; it is also very comfortable and breathable, and I like how the bag looks on the outside, but the functionality and durability are very, very poor. Next bag I get will be from Patagonia.
