The North Face is probably best known for their fantastic jackets and all-weather gear, but the brand is branching out later this year with the New Access Pack. The bag that includes multiple patent-pending features has plenty of things worth looking for in a bag.
Backpacks are an unfortunate reality we must all live with. Messenger bags, while a bit more stylish, are never big enough. They also don’t readily lend themselves to aimless stuffing. North Face’s new backpack, however, is the ultimate stuff bag.
The Access Pack’s outside resembles a cool turtle shell
We know that our gadgets can bog us down, that’s why the bag comes with a bunch of “ejector tabs” that you can use to take out your phone and other devices. But the bag’s true glory is its laptop compartment. It’s water resistant, can hold a 15-inch laptop, and has a pull handle to grab the laptop more quickly.
Zippers are out; latches are in
In terms of its features, several highlights are included, not limited to the one-touch open entry closure, which allows the user to access the main compartment with a flick of the clasp, all without the hassle and struggle of zips.
Within the backpack, ejector tabs enable the wearer to retrieve items such as laptops and cell phones with one motion, while the accessory’s silhouette itself features a rugged structure to shield its user’s expensive electronics.
The pockets themselves — sized for a laptop, tablet and cellphone — all have special tabs to get your gear out faster and smoother.
The new North Face bag is expected to hit select European retailers in July 2016.The North Face’s Access Pack will hit the stores for a price close to $250.
