The North FaceJester 26L Backpack - Women's

It's no joke.

The North Face Women's Jester Backpack may look fun, but it doesn't joke around at school or on the trail. The main compartment is large enough to fit all your school or work supplies, and there's a secondary compartment to hold lunch or an extra layer. The floating padded sleeve fits most 15-inch laptops and keeps them safe when you're on the go. The FlexVent shoulder straps are ergonomic and breathable for comfort, and the air-mesh back panel cushions and promotes airflow to keep you comfy when you're biking the city or hiking a trail.

Very Comfortable.

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

The padding on the shoulder straps and on the back padding make for very comfy use. I like to use mine for toting water and snacks on hikes or playing frisbee golf. Very enjoyable.

Zipper broke

    Got this for my daughter to use in high school. It was big enough for her books, but the zipper broke (ripped away from the fabric) after about 6 mo of use.

    excellent

    I bought this as a gift for my mom and she loves it. She's been using it for work and to carry water and snacks for quick hikes. She said the thick padding on the back panel is super comfortable and makes using it much more enjoyable.

    My on-the-go pack and I love it!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I needed a backpack that was light, durable, and adorable (yes, a much needed quality) while I commuted for work and school. I travel on public transit on some days and walk around the city so it was important for me to find a visible backpack that could handle windy days, downpour of rain, or sweat during the summer. I bought the Jester in Sweet Violet/Vermilion Orange a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it for so many reasons! First, the color is perfect--it's not too bright and its different, and I have received several compliments on how cute this backpack is. Second, the size is perfect; it can fit my 15 inch laptop, several books, my lunch, wallet, keys, water bottle and hat and gloves easily. Third, the feel; the padding on the back line and the straps are such an added bonus. I've had back issues in the past and this padding does add comfort while hauling all my stuff on long days. Also, the backpack itself is light and doesn't really add any additional weight to what I have to already carry. The whistle on the chest strap is an added bonus too (it works and its loud!). Finally, the front is a lovely feature--I'm able to store my phone, headphones, makeup, school supplies and other random things in its various pockets.
    Overall, I would recommend this backpack for any woman on the go for work, school, hiking days, or just day travelling.

    My wife and I actually use this backpack as a diaper bag. It is so much more durable than any other bag we have used. It gets thrown around on floors, in the car, and outside. It's light and very well padded. We will probably use it for some day hiking as well. Very impressed with the backpack

    Versatile backpack for sure! Thanks for the review Kyle.

    I bought this bag for my 9 year for a back-to-school gift. She loves it! She is a small girl but the bag works for her....and she loves the purple color.

    Great bag for school!
