Durable Everyday Pack
TNF’s best selling Jester Backpack is a reliable pack, designed to handle the demands of everyday use. Key features of the Jester include a reflective bike-light loop for visibility at night, side water bottle pockets, and a front elastic bungee cord for external gear attachment.
As is customary for The North Face, the Jester Backpack is equipped with several high-end comfort features. An air mesh back panel provides cushioned support and ventilation much like the North Face Surge Backpack. Additionally, the Jester’s shoulder straps are ergonomically shaped for maximum carrying comfort.
To ensure the Jester Backpack can withstand demanding outdoor conditions, 500D Cordura is used on the exterior of the bag. The Jester also has a strong internal nylon liner for further protection. Additionally, The North Face provides a Lifetime Product Warranty on all of their goods, assuring that they are free of material and manufacturing flaws.
Overall, the North Face Jester is a well-rounded backpack with an array of versatile features. While the North Face Borealis Backpack is a more popular North Face option, the Jester Backpack isn’t far behind it in terms of functional usability. The Jester also has an easily accessible cushioned laptop compartment.
