North Face Jester Backpack: Sturdy, Stylish but Not Funny
Jack’s Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars
Over the years, I have had a lot of backpack experience and I have seen the best and worst equipment. North Face is one of the better equipment manufacturers when it comes to backpacks. Now they want to let you know that they are making a backpack that can not only handler the rigors of high-country backpacking, but can also handle the daily workload of a middle school high school or college student.
One of the best things about this backpack is it’s simplicity. There are two main compartments in the front and back. The front pocket has some smaller organizer pockets for those smaller items.
The Jester is Smaller in Overall Carrying Capacity
The size may be rather small compared to some of the other larger capacity backpacks out there like the JanSport Big Student or the High Sierra Fatboy Backpack . While the Jester is a great pack, it’s overall carrying capacity is just 1,648 cubic inches.
Solid Weather Resistance
The North Face Jester is not only sturdy and strong, it will also hold up in weather and apparently, according to one of the product reviews below, keep your books, gear, equipment, etc. dafe and dry even in a rain storm (See Customer Review below).
There are a lot of great available colors – I especially like the Glo Green and Jake Blue/Deep Water Blue backpacks.
Jack says: “This is a quality, well-made backpack and well worth what you’ll pay for it. If the overall capacity is big enough for you, then I recommend the North Face Jester backpack.”

“Great bag. It has 2 main compartments, one in the front and one in the back. The compartment in the front has a couple of smaller pockets to put stuff inside, pretty simple layout. The straps are really comfortable and will never eat into your shoulders regardless of the content weight. I also had my bag on during slight rain with my DSLR inside. I was worried initially but when I found shelter, my camera and insides were still totally dry.
There was an accidental leakage of water from my bottle on another occasion as well, the insides dried up really fast and well. Great multi-purpose, or rather all-purpose bag for most weather conditions and comfort.
Just a slight edit for those interested in its durability. I’ve brought this bag out under heavy periods of rain with a DSLR (Canon 50D) and my laptop inside my bag. I was worried that the stuff inside would get wet so I kind of ran through the rain. The straps were sturdy and allowed me to move pretty fast with minimal obstruction.
Upon reaching my destination (which was sheltered) I unzipped the bag and found everything inside still toasty and dry. Great bag for any casual traveller.”

“Durable and stylish but too small. My husband seems to like it but is not useful due to he can hold limit books which forces him to still use two bags school.”
