Good day to day pack.
The Mentor does what it's made for, a great day to day pack for school/work. Personally, I use it to work and back and it has been sufficient. Wouldn't mind if it were a little bit bigger though. The only other qualm I have is the zippers, though sturdy, seem to "catch" often, and are not very smooth operationally. This seems to be a common occurence in most Northface bags I've owned.
