Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Compartment

The North Face Jester Daypack

(1/2)

I can fit my 11" MacBook Air (with ease), or can fit my 15" MacBook Pro (nice, snug fit) in the laptop compartment. The front pocket area has great organization, and the side water bottle mesh do the trick for my 700 ml water bottle. The main compartment is serviceable. Depending on if you are carrying a laptop or not will determine how much actual space you have

Carry-on

The North Face Jester Daypack

(1/2)

Unfortunately, while the carrying experience is a huge thing we like about it, there are parts that we don’t. These include the SBS zippers, the front compartment’s organization, and the water bottle pockets, which lack grip. We’ll get into more detail about each of these, so pour yourself a glass of your favorite beverage and let’s dive in.

Strap

The North Face Jester Daypack

(1/2)

Unfortunately, the strap is stitched and therefore non-removable in case you decide it’s unnecessary. Our only nitpick here is that it slides almost too easily, kind of like the SBS zippers, but not to an extreme degree. That said, it works well enough for the Jester’s size, and we see no reason for an overkill sternum strap either. Similarly, there’s no waist belt, and that keeps the harness system on the Jester simple but more than capable
