Great bag overall. The back panel is comfortably padded and the straps fit nicely. I've had a North Face Recon for about six years now that I absolutely love, so when I went to replace it with another Recon, I was distressed to realize they'd totally redesigned the bag - for the worse. Thankfully I found this. The best thing about the NF bag, in my opinion, was the mesh front pocket, which is a feature I love on the Flare. This bag is smaller (22 vs. 27L), but it's definitely large enough to carry a laptop, some notebooks and a textbook. The only issue I've had with this bag is that the laptop sleeve (or hydration bladder pocket) is a little loose; it could stand to have some sort of strap attaching it to the back of the bag to secure the computer. Beyond that, the materials are clearly of high quality, and the lining of the organizational pockets is bright so that you can easily identify items in the depths of the bag. Definitely a great purchase.

The photos and video do not show all that is the Flare. Just when I thought the perfect pack does not exist, I found this one! I must have at least 2 dozen packs, including TNF Recon and Kelty Red Wing - yet I'm always on the search for the perfect one. This one is my favorite for school and for weekend trips visiting friends and family. The larger section has a slot for my laptop, a separate iPad slot (which I put in file folders and papers) and a mesh zip pocket (can be seen on video). Plus lots of space for books and clothes. The smaller section has loads of pockets - 3 open pockets (mesh) at the top (middle pocket fits my iPhone 6 plus) and pockets across the bottom (pen slots and 2 or 3 other pockets, made of nylon). Also is a zip pocket halfway down where I put items I don't want people to see when I open my pack. I have the blue and the interior is bright yellow-green color - easy to find everything. Another smaller fleece lined pocket is in the front at the top - the typical sunglasses pocket. Front stash pocket is stretchy and strong as well as the two side water bottle slots. The organizations and size are absolutely perfect for school. For hiking/trail - I have about 5 other packs I use depending on the size of the load I'm carrying. But this one is my absolute favorite.

I'd also recommend: Kelty, TNF, Mountain Hardwear, Mountainsmith, Marmot.

I bought this bag two years ago from Zappos, and this review is long overdue. First, as a preface, I'm a bag snob - I have had several packs by good manufacturers and I've been through several messenger bags. This bag is my favorite in terms of comfort and multiple uses. I have a smallish frame (5'6"), and this bag doesn't overwhelm my body, but it does fit a ton of stuff. I use it for grocery shopping (including loading it with heavy stuff), and also use it for biking and walking all over. There are many, well-positioned pockets. The two side water bottles are well-designed - they actually fit bottles, plus for me they keep handy items (like cellphone or keys). Finally, when I walk all over and carry weight in the bag, my back remains pain-free. And, yep, it still looks good after two years.

Not too big, not too small. Just perfect. I like the green color - looks cool.

I have a small frame (5'1", 110 lbs) and was hoping this backpack would be small enough for me, but unfortunately it was just an inch or two too long for my torso. Aside from the fit though, this pack had a nice variety of pockets for storing things, including a nicely padded laptop compartment.
