Backpacks from The North Face



A comfortable backpack is key for all-day travel, and you need a place to put all your necessities for the day. A messenger bag can wreak havoc on your shoulders and your old bag may not be up to the task. Get a rugged pack that'll have your back while trekking through the wilds.



Rugged and comfortable backpacking and hiking packs



Ready to go all day? Head up a mountain or down a trail with an ultralight pack that lets you carry everything you need on any backcountry adventure.

Some even add in an internal frame to provide extra support on your journey. Now it will be easy to carry your tent and all your gear.

Keep going down the trail for as long as you want. Many bags feature a hydration sleeve to keep a water bottle close at hand. Plenty of small pockets provide access to trail snacks, sunscreen, and packable rainwear. External webbing keeps things secure and provides an attachment point for extra gear. You won't have to stop for weather either. Our water-resistant fabric lets you keep going, even when it starts to rain or snow. Tough materials like Cordura® nylon ripstop fabric keep rogue branches, sharp rocks, or rough handling from stopping your trip short.



City daypack and travel backpacks: in-city features



If your adventures take you into the city, never fear. Our urban-style commuter backpacks provide everything you need for city life. Get a laptop backpack to carry precious tech on trains, subways, and airplanes. The padded laptop sleeve will keep your computer safe and many are compatible up to 17 inches. Your standard 13- or 15-inch laptop will be perfectly secure.

Far from being impeded by tech storage, the main compartments of our city day packs are spacious. There's plenty of room to pack a change of clothes, carry a picnic, or just to run your errands. Side pockets let you store smaller items. Stop losing your phone, keys, and wallet in the black hole of the big pocket.
