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 15-inch laptops, and mesh side pockets give you space for your water bottles. The breathable FlexVent shoulder straps stretch at your every move, and the air-mesh back panel provides the cushioning and breathability you need whether you're biking the city or hiking a trail. 

  • Polyester fabrics
  • Floating padded laptop pocket
  • FlexVent suspension system and padded mesh back panel
  • Mesh water bottle pockets
  • Reflective bike light loop, water bottle tabs, and shoulder strap webbing

Not the old Jester

  • Gender:Female
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Owned a previous version of the Jester from 4yrs ago. Loved it until it got stolen 2 weeks ago. Bought this version immediately after and liked the look. Was very comfortable. Things I noticed had changed: 1. Smaller capacity; 2. Shallow side mesh pockets (my old water bottle fell out repeatedly); 3. Slanted bottom meant it didn't stand well when you laid it on a table to get things out; 4. there were no zipper covers so if it rained the zippers had no coverage; 5. no waist belt. Just not sure why they altered a good thing so drastically.


Best bang for the buck

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

What first attracted me to this bag was the color. It’s a combination of black, gray and white… finally a sweet set of colors so I bought it on that alone…. but also know that the North Face makes a great product and stands behind it. When I got the bag I was pleasantly surprised to see that the North Face have much improved their build quality over the last 5 years. Construction is great. Space planning including for the all necessary laptop is well designed. At this price, get it.


North Face Jester backpack

    I purchased the Jester backpack as a replacement backpack for my 13 year old daughter. She's very picky and wanted something plain and roomy and I wanted something budget-friendly and durable . This backpack fits these requirements perfectly! She can fit her multiple binders, lunch bag and pencil pouch with no problem.
