It is a very snug book bag, and can fit everything well without having materials move around and get damaged (books). This, however, has turned out to be a small problem because it cannot fit pants dress shirt and a blazer inside (book bag will not close). This is a minimal problem, because, when I change clothes and put my entire dress clothes in the book bag the book bag can close but it is difficult as it becomes really bulky and round. Overall I have been really pleased with the sturdy design of the product, it fits two macbook pros and an iPad along with 3 subject notebooks and a book
Where the North Face had two separate compartments, one large and one narrow for papers and the like, as well as a padded laptop compartment, the Thule has one large compartment in addition to the laptop sleeve. Additionally, the side pockets on the Thule are a bit small and tight for water bottles and other things that I tend to stuff in there. The hard case for sunglasses and etc. is a clever idea, but it's not easy to get items into or out of
As i fully load the bag, its strap showed weakness early and i had to be careful carrying it with both straps when pulling it to wear it on my back. Then all the tabs started to stiffen and break. And the chest strap between the shoulder straps fell off from one side *check the photos Other than these two points, it was a perfect backpack. suggest a replacement as all their new backpacks are not well designed as this one
