"This bookbag is amazing! It fits lots of things without looking too large. I got it in the Prussian Blue Trifecta print and I love it. The last North Face bag I purchased was a lot "longer", or taller. And I have a short torso, so it was uncomfortable because I could feel it on my neck and lower back. But I do not have that problem with this one. I highly recommend it for high school or college students. It's also very durable, and the back isn't overly tough. It also has great organization. It doesn't have a laptop pocket but I guess that's expected because it's a hiking bag. Overall, this bookbag is perfect to me."

"Looks great, love the color choices, and I trust The North Face as a quality company. But the interior is smaller than I expected and the lack of extra pockets on the front means even less storage space. This backpack is not going to hold all that I need my backpack to hold for school."

"Great bag!my wife bought it for me as a Christmas gift. My old backpack had seen better days. It is a good size and I use it as a carry-on when we fly. It is also a good size weekend bag. The colors look cool,it stands out. Good bag."

"Overall, this is a great product, I love it! Few Pros and Cons that I can come up with from the top of my head: Pros -I ordered the lightning yellow, I thought it might have been too neon-yellow, but my colleagues and many others gave mega compliments on the color -The back has a hard layer over it, so even when you put a few small items in the bag, they won't poke at your back. -The strap is really comfortable and tight, it's great if you're hiking or something and you don't want it sliding off your back. -I really like the number of pockets and etc it has, it doesn't have hundreds of mini pockets or sections/compartments, it's just two zippers and a few pockets, so it's simple and easy to use Cons -The bag itself has this issue where if you stuff a decent amount of books in the back or main compartment, the second compartment shrinks and all the items that fall in the bottom of that compartment become annoying and hard to reach. -For a Highschool student like me, I tend to shove a lot of textbooks and etc in the bag, but not all of them fit, and like I said, the second compartment tends to shrink when I shove a few extra binders in the main compartment and the objects in the bottom of the second compartment are really hard to reach into. -The strings in the front also gets caught easily and it stretches a bit, but overall, I guess it comes in handy when it's holding your Cardigans or Jackets or Sweaters, I just never use them so Overall, I give it about 8.5, I think the bag was definitely worth buying for the price and that I would definitely buy it again and or recommend it to a friend."

"I absolutely love this backpack! Not only does it look amazing, but the strain of carrying heavy college textbooks all day has vanished. I had been carrying a cheap backpack from Wal-Mart all throughout high-school, but once I entered college last year, I have longed for a comfty backpack every day of class! Once I was accepted into the nursing program I realized the need for a new backpack was A.S.A.P! I searched almost everyday going through numerous reviews and buying 3 backpacks, including the Jester, Borealis, and Dakine Campus Backpack. The Jester made the cut. The Borealis was higher and didn't carry as many books as the Jester which carries 4 thick and heavy books with a 2 inch binder. The Jester was less stiff than the Borealis, but that would be due to the stiff laptop padding of the Borealis, which I didn't need since I wasn't going to carry my laptop. I bought it in black to look professional and match my scrubs. The Dakine was just too big, I felt like a turtle. Although it was hard not to like it due to it's cooler compartment, guess I'll just be carrying a lunchbox. I also considered a rolling bookbag which I see numerous nursing students carrying, but it just wasn't my style. I would definitely recommend this backpack to anyone who is considering it, especially if it is on sale such as when I bought it! Definitely a college backpack!!!!"
