The North Face Access Pack


Backpacks are an unfortunate reality we must all live with. Messenger bags, while a bit more stylish, are never big enough. They also don’t readily lend themselves to aimless stuffing. North Face’s new backpack, however, is the ultimate stuff bag. The Access Pack’s outside resembles a cool turtle shell, more for a jet-setting millennial than an elementary schooler. And knowing that our gadgets can bog us down, the Access Pack comes with a bunch of “ejector tabs” that you can use to take out your phone and other devices. But the bag’s true glory is its laptop compartment. It’s water resistant, can hold a 15-inch laptop, and has a pull handle to grab the laptop more quickly.


Pushing a button on the top of the pack releases the panel’s spring-loaded locking mechanism, leaving it opened for your random books, electronics, water bottles, and other day-to-day necessities. A thinner zippered panel on the back of the Access Pack is designed to hold your laptop—it’s slightly harder to quickly open for security reasons. And throughout the pack you’ll find a series of pockets that allow quick access to phones, pens, and other smaller items using ejector straps you simply have to pull.

This backpack was one of the most awaited bags to any tech or backpack reviewer. If you liked this review you may like some others so please check them out. Also don’t forget to like comment and subscribe.
