3.0 out of 5 stars Bulky and off balance, not easy to get things in and out of all the storage compartments.
By Consumer on September 27, 2019
I purchased this bag primarily for travel, my previous bag was a 2010 vintage REI Trail 25. I chose this bag based on capacity and organized pocket storage. I travel full time for work and it’s important to be organized while you’re on the road.

The Pros: I like the size and shape of most of the zippered pockets and the zippers are rugged with pulls that are easy to grasp even with cold, wet, or gloved hands. The larger compartments easily accommodate my laptop, iPad, and power supply.
The Cons: The configuration of the bag makes it hard to stow or set down. With all the zippered storage pockets at the top of the bag it makes the bag top heavy ant tippy if you take the bag of and set it down. This arrangement also makes it harder to get anything in and out of the bottom rear pocket with the elastic band and nylon straps. It causes some things to hang up as you’re trying to get them in and out of the bottom pocket. This happened to me so often that the seam/binding on mine started to fall apart after only 4 months of use. If Northface wanted to fix this they could swap the top and bottom storage pockets.
The geometry of the pack is long, not wide, if you’re using this as a Cary on, it will stick out from under any airline seat you try to stuff it under.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 6, 2019
The bag is fine, but I found a part of a used Refresher packet in the front compartment. If people are returning items *after use*, how can they be sold as new? Would appreciate some feedback on this.
