is this good for school?
My college son requested this item for a Christmas gift. He absolutely loves it. He actually bragged about his daypack verses me carrying a purse, and a tote when I travel.
I would say no, this is not good for school because it is too long. Books can be hard to get in and out of it with how deep the main compartment is. I bought this bag and returned it for the Recon which I love and which is perfect for school. The North Face Recon has a mesh pocket on the front that is great for throwing things into when on the go, like a scarf, sweater, apple, anything that fits. The pocket could be used for a helmet if you're into that sort of thing.
I used it in High School, and it worked really well. Now I'm using it in college. It worked great as a carry on for the plane and it also works great for carrying all my school books.
I used this backpack for the last few years of college. I loved it. There is padding so your back is comfortable, a waist strap that helps if you're carrying a lot of heavy books, a slot for your laptop, and places to put your pens and pencils. I recommend it.
Yes, it would be excellent for school. Multiple compartments, and a spacious central compartment for bigger books.
Yeah. Its not too big and has good straps. Has only one large pocket for everything but the second smaller one does have the small sections for pens or whatever. There is a flap on the inside of the large pocket if you want to keep something seperate like a laptop. I love it and think its worth the bucks.
It is a great all around back / day pack. My kids, husband and I all reach for it.
Yes! I purchased the Hot Shot Daypack for my husband to wear on his commute (carrying power tools, clothes, etc) - six months later, and it's held up nicely. Excellent choice all around, and a deal at the price.
I bought this backpack specifically for college after seeing a friend with one. I'm very pleased with it. It has a good sleeve for a laptop, and ample room for books. The front compartment has a variety of pockets that you can stuff everything into: headphones, pens, pencils, whatever. Probably more important than all that though, is since it's a quality Northface backpack, it feels good on your shoulders even if it's a heavy load, and it breathes decently. I'd only have two (small) issues. First, it might be a little bigger than what you're needing, vertically, if you're just tossing textbooks in. But it's great if you need to stuff it with campgear every now and then. Also, there's the hip buckle. I haven't used it once. I just strapped it tight, buckled it, and tucked in the excess. But again, I really enjoy having it.
