From the campus to the trail.

When it comes to your hiking gear and school work, The North Face Jester Backpack isn't joking around. The main compartment should be large enough to fit all your textbooks, and there's a secondary compartment for your hiking gear so you don't turn in a bag of trail mix instead of your final paper. The Jester also features a padded sleeve that fits most fifteen-inch laptops, and mesh side pockets for your water bottles. The breathable FlexVent shoulder straps stretch at your every move, and the foam back panel provides all the cush you need for day hikes. 

  • FlexVent shoulder straps
  • Foam back panel
  • Removable waistbelt
  • Padded laptop sleeve
  • Secondary compartment with organization
  • Mesh side pockets

Here's what others have to say...

I like this backpack, but I have 17 inch laptop, does anyone know if it will still fit?

Hey Harleen,

This backpack features a padded 15" laptop sleeve so unfortunately, it will not fit a 17" laptop.

Excellent in the harshest conditions!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've put this pack through some crazy weather and time and again, it continues to impress me. Last weekend I took it out on the ski slopes at Park City, Utah where we were hit with a snowstorm that was pounding all day long with precip of 3" per hour at times. While my 10k rated jacket and pants were damp and about to give in, I was amazed to find all my belongings in my Jester pack completely dry at the end of the day.

Also, the size of this model is ideal for women. I own a North Face Surge pack as well and don't use it as often simply because it's bulky to the point where I look like a ninja turtle. And the Jester is superior in that it has just enough compartments without causing you to forget where things are stashed. Outstanding product all around!!!

good for work or travel

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this backpack! You can tell it's built really sturdy and out of a high quality material. I use this pack everyday to carry to work/school. It's also the perfect size for a day pack when traveling.

I use this pack as my pack for work, to carry my laptop, charger, iphone cord, pens, legal pad, etc in for to and from work and to meetings in or out of the office. It looks good, holds up well, and doesnt scream "IT Nerd" like a lot of laptop bags do.

Why only four stars? I'm considering this pack and I'd like to know what you didn't like about it. Thanks!

Perfect for High School

My 17 year old grandson wanted a North Face backpack for school. I was okay in purchasing one for him because I have owned them in the past and they are very good quality. After a great deal of searching, I decided on this one. He loves it. It is large enough to hold his books and other items and he has gotten many compliments on it.
