User Review: The North Face Sport Hiker
Price Paid: $59
A solid pack if you want a messenger bag style. Used solely with the hip belt as a fanny or hip pack its a bit less comfortable then the alpine North Face mountain bike hip pack.
A plethora of pockets and handy zippers can comfortably fit a small-to-medium sized books, a few 1-liter water bottles and some goggles along with the occasional hiking odds and ends.
Recommended, but make sure to try it on first with some heavy items inside before you buy it.
Worth the $59 plus tax it was listed for in the flagship North Face store. Bricks and mortar have some advantages after all!
Buy if you plan as using it as a solo hip pack for medium to large sized gear.
