This is a good slightly cheaper alternative to the mega popular Borealis. 28L, strong material and comfortable. Perfect for a student who needs the look and the functionality. There is a padded laptop section, a front organiser section and a sternum strap so it just about ticks all my boxes. A raincover would be nice, but most of The North Face bags like this are fairly water resistant (I know from experience). A great price for a quality bag. Black, unisex model.
