Unplanned escape.

When it's Friday afternoon and you realize you've got an open weekend ahead — no commitments and nowhere to be — pack up The North Face Drift 55 Backpack and go spend the weekend off-the-grid. With a top-loading design and separate sleeping bag compartment, the Drift 55 makes packing up in a hurry simple. Eight pockets spread throughout the pack let you separate the clothing and food you'll need for your two-day sojourn in the woods, and an airy ventilated support system keeps you comfortable once you begin your trek. After you make camp off the trail, head out on  a morning summit push or a short detour to an alpine lake without being weighed down by all of your gear; the Drift 55 includes a small sack pack so that you can leave your camp stuff behind and explore unencumbered.

  • Q & A

The tandori model that you sell has the straps and padding black or white?

Hey estaban, It's white on the padding, black on the nylon runners.

Love! (but product image not accurate)

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

I bought this in the color "Tandoori Spice/...Casino." Let me first say that I was relieved to see that the product image was not accurate. Here it shows the padding being white (which I was worried about, with sweat and staining and everything) and in reality, the straps and padding are black throughout.
I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it seems well made and I'm hoping the material is sturdy enough that this pack will be with me a while. I do wish that the pack had a hole at the top to lead the bladder's hose through but it should be fine anyway.
