You never know when you might need to strap a basketball (or small dog) to your pack, so take along The North Face Sweeper Backpack.

The North Face Sweeper Backpack carries all your books for class and your gear for after-school sports. Two compartments and an organizer keep everything in its place, so you don't have to dig through your bag for ten minutes every time you need a pen. The North Face even added a front stretch pocket that can hold a basketball. A hydration port, water bottle pockets, and removable waist-belt round out the features on the Sweeper Backpack.

Hello, I notice that a laptop dimension is not detailed, but I am sure that is flexbile to hold one. Do you know how big of a bag this is, or if a laptop size is detailed?

Overall Pack Dimensions: 20 x 13 x 8 inches

Compatible with most 15" laptops.

Does the laptop compartment do a good job of protecting the computer? Is it padded at all?

Laptop will be protected, sleeve is suspended. BTW, you can fit an entire basketball in the outer mesh pocket. Hoops!

how well does it work if i have allot of school stuff in it
also how well does the bottom section work

It worked well for me. It can fit about 3 average sized books and then notebooks and folders. The bottom works really well too if you're carrying clothes around with you. I would definitely recommend it.

What exactly is the hydration port and where is it?

Best Answer

I think what they mean by hydration port is the place where the bladder hose exits the pack so it could be a small hole or sleeve on or beside the top of the straps.

Good bag

I like the size and it feels comfortable on my shoulders. The only thing I think i would have like to have seen would be a hard shell over the front "trampoline" like on the Neutron 32 backpack made by north face.

Love this bag!!

I ordered this bag about a year ago... works perfectly. I've never had a problem with tears or rips anywhere (and I stuff the bag to the brim) Very comfortable, lots of hooks/straps. Expands if you are carrying a lot. Bottom compartment is convenient but I don't use it very much. Well priced, great company.

I'm going to be a college freshman this year and I'm looking for a backpack that will fit my bags in it and my laptop. I also might use it for gear...but most of the time I will go back to my room for that. I am 5'4" and have a history of mild back problems.
Should I be looking at the Jemma, the Borealis, or this one?

I bought this for my nephew. He is a high school freshman and is fairly rough on his gear. He loves this backpack and carries it all over the place. His laptop fits in it, and so do his books. And it's no telling what else is in there.

Bottom compartment

This bag is great! I travel a lot & wanted a bag that would easily fit into the over head compartment of an aircraft & would hold a few days worth of cloths with all the toiletries I need including a hand towel. I was a little disappointed about the bottom compartment. I was hoping that it would be completely separate from the interior storage. Unfortunately if you put a pair of shoes in the bottom (size 10 women) & a hand towel it invades on the storage place of the main compartment. Needless to say I learned to pack my “travel bag” by the bottom compartment first then the main compartment. This is the first bag that actually fits my back. It’s not too long like most bags.

**Special note** The customer service personal are all ways very helpful. Major kudos to them! =)

Does this backpack have a hip belt? Like those "flaps" that other north face backpacks have, not just the thinner straps.

It does have a waist belt, but just the thinner webbing style, not the thicker backpacking style. You can see it in the photos.

does it really rip? because i want to get one because i just had an adidas backpack for school and it broke and i got it in september so i need a backpack that is strong enough to hold my stuff like sneakers, gym clothes and books. hopefully this is strong enough for all that stuff.

I wouldn't worry about it, but its not a big deal if it does because backcountry has an unlimited lifetime warranty.

Great Pack

This pack offers everything. Fits my macbook, books and gym gear and its very comfortable. The only thing that might be considered a bad thing is the pack does not have a flat bottom surface so it can rest on the floor, but thats not a big deal

This is the best backpack I've ever used; It carries everything for school plus workout items. I put my hemet in the front mesh part too; no other bag goes that so well. It has 2 places for drinks...I love it.

Perfect for Gym + Work

I was looking for a bag that could carry both my work (i.e. 15" laptop & notebooks) and workout gear (shoes, shorts, shirts, etc). This bag exceeded my needs. It easily holds my office supplies and workout clothes.

Very nicely organized

I love my new backpack. I especially like the bottom compartment for storing my gym clothes and shoes separately. The front compartment is handy for slipping in things I want easy access to. The side netting for water bottles seems good and sturdy too, which I like. The inside holds all my things so they are organized and easy to find. I use my pack daily during the week. I wish the bottom of the pack was flatter, but that's only a minor complaint--adjusting my belongings in the bottom compartment helps with that.

i am starting to like my sweeper. it holds everything and the pockets are a nice feature. don't like that it sits on a point wish bottom was flat.

Would this back pack be big enough for a high school class load with all the books plus some sports gear?

1850ci will allow you to carry quite a load & small sports gear.

can i fit a pair of shoes in the bottom zip compartment?

I would guess no, but it would depend on what kind of shoe, and how big your feet are.Smaller shoes & not boots.
