No amount of homework can match the carrying power of The North Face Hot Shot Backpack.

The North Face Hot Shot Backpack's cargo space easily holds the books you need for class. When it's loaded, the Hot Shot's angled bottom panel shifts your spiral-bound load close to your back for easy carrying. The tuck-away waist-belt adds more support when you're confronted with unexpected homework, and the padded laptop sleeve carries your 17-inch portable ‘puter. The North Face added a front zip pocket to keep your pens at the ready for a pop quiz.

Good school backpack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this one because it was waterproof and I knew that it would often be raining when walking to class. I have never had an issue with my stuff getting wet! I have had it for two school yars and it will probably last through the rest of college, but it does show some wear. One of the water bottle side holders used to have a clip that would cinch the bungie up tight around the bottle, but that broke off. I also am noticing the shell to get some hot spot where there is a lot of vexing from putting my laptop/books in and out repeatedly over the years. I would buy it again.

Awesome day pack!

I took this pack the Europe with me and it worked perfect. It carried all my travel essentials. This pack would be perfect for school as well. My laptop fit just fine.

Love this pack!

Really nice! Big enough for a four day trip to the city but can also compress if you just need it for a trip to the library. My big 17" laptop fits too. Haven't had a chance to use it for a dayhike but the sternum strap and waist belt will make carrying it a breeze. Lots of inside pockets for organizing "stuff" too.

are the zippers on the main storage area...

are the zippers on the main storage area of bag full metal zippers or metal only on the bottom part (like the recon)?
i need a bag w/metal zipper handles, not the pull-string handle type.

The zippers are pull-strings tied to lower metal zippers. They are not full metal. They seem to be working fine, but I've only been using the pack for a few weeks.

the hotshot

Very nice back pack not quite as big as i anticipated but it will hold a lot i think its a bit skinnier and longer rather than as wide as i had initially anticipated but still an awesome pack to carry everything including your laptop. I carry a 14.1 inch work laptop and it has tons of space to spare i know my 15 inch fits nicely but i dont think a 17 inch laptop will fit in this those are pretty huge. all around a great day pack/ work load carrier.

This backpack is great. It holds a 15" laptop very snug and is big enough for a weekend camping trip

is this pack waterproof? I'm looking for...

is this pack waterproof? I'm looking for something to pack to work when i bike in the rain or shine. So if its pouring outside i need to be sure the pack i have will keep the water out away from my laptop.

Like most everyday daypacks, this is water-resistant and not waterproof. If it is really important to find one that is more waterproof, I would also check out the technical daypack section:

Some of these packs are constructed to do better in the elements (but they won't have as many pockets or organizational features). Better yet, some technical daypacks come with a built-in rain fly.

Screw Briefcases

The Hot Shot is my day-to-day work bag. Granted I'm not the desk-jockey type, but my laptop, work documents, kleen kanteen and post-work trail runners all happily call the hot shot home. I also find myself grabbing it more often than not for mild to moderate day hikes.

My question is how big is this the laptop...

My question is how big is this the laptop compartment of the Hot Shot Backpack backpack.
I am asking you this question because my laptop it's an 18,4 inch HP hdx, so being an 16:9 ratio means it's wider than a 17 inches one but I belive it has the same width. These informations are very important for me if anybody can help me pls. Thank you.

then your laptop is basically an inch and a half to big. So it will not fit.
