Great new laptop backpack from North Face. Lots of internal pockets. Well padded straps and back panel. More space than the Recon with laptop. Well designed for the office and yet sporty features. The dedicated laptop pocket is great although a two-way zipper would be nice. This is a long pack (20") and is not for anyone with a short torso. Two complaints: the zippers on the main compartments catch on the fabric and don't work as smoothly as on some packs and the cylinder blue is rather drab for a company that typically has really nice color combinations for its popular packs.
