With a massive 5187 cubic inches of cargo space, it's safe to call The North Face Matthes Crest 85 Backpack cavernous. Its enormous size isn't its true claim to fame, though. The North Face gave the Matthes Crest 85 its most advanced harness and fit system, so even with a huge load you can still crank out the miles comfortably. Tons of pocket space makes the Matthes Crest easy to organize makes your essentials easy to get to in a hurry, and the additional panel-zipper makes loading and unloading a snap.
