    Comments about TheNorthFace BIG SHOT BACKPACK:

    This is a great pack that serves a lot of purposes for me. I use it for day trips and it functions very well here. What surprised me is it has also replaced my messenger bag that I would use commuting to work on my bike. It has a perfect computer slot for my 15" MacBook Pro. I can really stuff it full and even when it is heavy picking up, it doesn't feel heavy on my back, a sign of superior design. The support and structure to the pack is excellent and doesn't detract from the comfort. I haven't used many of the interior pocket features but they are well positioned. The top exterior pocket gets lots of use. The only minor con is I don't use the front handle much and I might get more use out of bungee cords here. All in all, I couldn't ask for a better pack. #TNFLocals #AMBSDR

        Comments about TheNorthFace BIG SHOT BACKPACK:

        I've used the Big Shot for hiking over the last month, having carried it for over 100 miles on mini-adventures. On many of these jaunts, my young son accompanied me and anyone who has ever taken a kid out hiking knows you need a pack with great organization. If you are out in the woods with a 3-year-old meltdown because you wouldn't let them jump off the waterfall, you need something with quick easy access to the essentials like snacks.

        The Big Shot offered fantastic access to insect repellent, gold fish, sunscreen and even the first aid kit when we needed it the most. I also found that the top fleece pocket offered great protection for storing my larger camera and mini tripod. Though I didn't carry my laptop in the padded compartment, I did happen to carry my tablet while on a less-than-adventurous trip.

        Most generally I carried a medium day hiking load of about 12-15 pounds, though while training for a Search and Rescue physical fitness test I was loading it with 25 pounds of water. The wide shoulder straps did an excellent job of distributing weight. I found the capacity pleasing enough and even fit enough inside for a short overnight backpacking trip on the Finger Lakes Trail.

        For now, this pack is getting ready to go on a family hiking vacation and road trip.

        In disclosure, this pack was offered to me for testing as a member of the #TNFLocals #AMBSDR program and I am appreciative of the chance to tote it though the woods.

        Comments about TheNorthFace BIG SHOT BACKPACK:

        This is a great pack, it's useful for so many things. In the past two months I've taken it climbing, for shuttling gear during an ultra-endurance race, hiking, for school, biking... basically it's a very versatile pack. It's got a great, very durable fabric that still looks brand new after two months of heavy use. Also, it's got these awesome water bottle holders that zip up. It has a lot of room (enough to fit climbing gear) and is pretty comfortable to wear. My only complaint would be that the hip belt would be nicer if it were a little more substantial. However, for what I use this pack, it's not a huge deal.
        Full disclosure: The North Face sent me this pack as part of the North Face Locals program. #TNFLocals #AMBSDR

          This bag is really versatile. From casual stroll at a theme park, hiking with installed water bladder to traveling across country. It looks great, stylish and classic. Also it's very durable yet lightweight at the same time.

            Comments about TheNorthFace BIG SHOT BACKPACK:

            The Big Shot backpack is an excellent multi-purpose backpack. I've used it a) running while pushing a stroller in the trails in the Santa Cruz Mountains b) daypack while hiking and camping c) as a baby bag for my 1 year old boy and d) as a laptop bag.

            The pack fits close to the back with a good ventilation system making it good for when you want to carry things in comfort. The backpack is feature rich and durable with lots of pockets making it best for trips around town, commuting, or dayhiking.

            The pack is comfortable and versatile.

            I'm also a TNFLocals Ambassador who received this backpack to test from the TNF. I highly recommend it and will get it for my professional wife when she needs a new backpack. #tnflocals #givepack #ambsdr

              Comments about TheNorthFace BIG SHOT BACKPACK:

              This backpack is perfect for anything I want/need to do. I have been using for carrying anything from work supplies/laptop to carrying cleats, workout clothes, sunglasses, etc. I feel that this bag covers all the bases and is super comfortable. I have yet to take it hiking, however it would be a great pack for getting outdoors for a day hike as well. It has awesome slots for shoes, so I like putting my soccer cleats in those pouches and they fit perfectly (size 10.5). This bag has replaced my old Osprey daypack. It is much more suited to my needs of travel, work, and play. I was chosen to test this bag by The North Face, and I have loved every second with it. #ambsdr #tnflocals

                Love this pack. It has been great for my recent hikes and works great as a full day pack when traveling light. Wish it was slightly larger to really bring everything that would be nice for a trip, but I am not holding that against such a great pack. The laptop and interior pockets in the main compartment are great for holding the essentials and keeping them safe/secure. Strong zippers have been real nice for packing the bag full knowing that they won't seperate. All in all it is a great pack that I have been enjoying for all of my adventures! #tnflocals #ambsdr
