Tough enough for the deep woods.

When it comes to durable daypacks, The North Face Jester doesn't joke around. Super-tough construction and features that other companies' technical backcountry packs would be proud of mean your stuff is getting where it's going without a snag.
  • Comfortable FlexVent injection-molded shoulder straps to ease the pain of heading to class
  • Strapping on the rear of the pack for a rain jacket or extra layer
  • Bungee side water bottle pockets keep hydration close at hand
  • Removable hipbelt strap for added support

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this bag one month ago. AND It really is what I need. The color was nice and the outlook was nice. I totally like it. Bye the way, the customer service was extremely well. They can solve any problems well. I like backcountry.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love this backpack, originally I had gotten the jester II (pink) and I bought my boyfriend this one. I hated the jester II! too bulky for my taste. My boyfriend let me borrow his Jester and I fell in love. Very comfortable, durable, and not as bulky as the Jester II. Able to fit my books and laptop so that helps! The product arrived in 2 days just as promised. Great buy! If you're looking for a good backpack, i definitely suggest this one!

Best backpack!

The Jester was ranked the best backpack by Consumer Reports and I have to say they were right. Bought it for my daughter in high school and she used it there 2 years and now the second year in college and it still looks great. Can't believe how long it has held up. Sure beats buying a new one every year.

Great backpack!

Bought 3 of these for my son and 2 daughters for school. They love them! Comfy straps for heavy books, water bottle pocket on the side, a separate compartment that they use to store their laptops (although they are not designed for this so extra care is required) but the packs designed for laptops are just too big. This is a great size to fit in a locker and still carry a laptop and books. Only had them about a month, but they seem like they will hold up well. Great price compared to other nf backpack styles with many colors to chose from..more colors on nf site, but the price was better here.
