The North Face Route Rocket
Near perfection in a pack
It's been a while since I wrote a review. But that's only because I only write them for stuff that's truly outstanding. This pack is near perfection. It's light. It's tough.

The North Face Surge Pack - Women's
Good commuter backpack
I use this backpack for to and from work. It is useful because I can put my laptop in there are it feels safe from spilled drinks/food. It has a comfortable fit, although if you don't like the box feel of a backpack then I wouldn't recommend this product. I recently had the North Face recon for 12 y...
