While The North Face Modem Laptop Backpack is an inch shorter than the utilitarian Vault Daypack, it offers the same carrying capacity (1,850 cubic inches) along with a few features specifically oriented toward urban commuters and students. In the large main compartment with canted opening you'll find a universal sleeve that fits most small laptops and accommodating organization. Along the front you'll find a secondary compartment with additional organization. A comfortable Airmesh back panel, shoulder straps, and removable hip belt allow for total adjustment. The North Face Modem pack is more about what you make it and less about expensive specialized features, so you never pay more for things you might not need on the trail or out on the road.

The service was great & I really like this backpack. I carry my macbook in the computer pocket to college everyday & I have noticed that the outside is nice & waterproof. I am really glad I bought this bag & from Altrec!

Great basic daypack
October 12, 2007

I ordered this because it seemed to offer the bare basics in a pack, with the addition of a laptop slop. Well it delivers. Well constructed. Not the coolest looking perhaps, but clean and functional (I ordered black, but a color would give it more "edge"). Has 3 main pockets: the main one inside for books, files, even a bundled sweater. Also has a padded sleeve which fits my 15" macbook like a glove. (17" would probably be too tight) There's a 2nd compartment which can take another slim file and has various small pockets for pens, keys, etc (and my flash camcorder). Finally there is an external section that can handle small quick-grab items, like a wallet or CD/MP3 player - there's a hole for your heaphones to feed through. All in all, a well made, well priced basic that can handle everyday and carry-on duties. Comfy to wear, too. There's also a carry handle at the top for when you don't wanna sling it.

great pack!

I've had this pack for about 6 months now, and it is by far the best pack ive ever had. its sturdy, comfortable, and looks good, what else could you want. only downfall is that there is no drink holder.

I got one 2 weeks ago, it looks pretty good. There are 2 drink holders. It's really a good deal.

This backpack is great for traveling and outdoor trips! I love how it holds my 17" laptop. The only thing I was hoping for was a place to put my water bottle! There's no holder for any sort of drink.

A great backpack that will last the whole school year!
