A moment of reflection.

The Gnomad backpack is a compact, water-resistant commuter bag that excels at taking all the technical features you've come to expect from The North Face and applying them to your slog through the urban jungle. Reflective print on the Gnomad's front panel make it highly visible in the low-light conditions you'll encounter getting to that first early meeting or biking home after finishing a big project.

Great Commuter Bag

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this to commute to and from work. Actually larger than I had expected in a good way. Reflector on the back makes me feel a bit more comfortable about being out on the road early in the morning. Light weight and fits my back quite well. Doesn't jump around like some other bags that I have used in the past. It hasn't rained on me yet so I cant attest to the water resistance. Only thing missing would be a hydration pack or the ability to add one.

Unique and Functional

    I have used pretty standard backpacks for decades now and I take my laptop just about everywhere I go. I was ready to mix it up and bought this pack a couple months ago. I bought it because of the unique look, it get's 5 stars because it is super functional and has enough space and organization for everything I need when I leave the house each day.

    Thanks for the review Dave! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.
