The Vault from The North Face is a school backpack that’s so much more than just a school backpack. And this season, with the help of some students, The North Face have updated the Vault so it now includes double handles, is self-standing and has a slimmer profile to make it more adpated for commuting on packed trains. The ultra-comfortable FlexVent suspension system with female-specific, flexible moulded shoulder straps, a padded mesh back section and a breathable lumbar panel remains the same. And the main compartment still has space for a couple of books and your laptop – in a separate protective sleeve – or a change of clothes if you’re overnighting at a friend’s. The front compartment has a padded tablet sleeve, zipped storage and space for pens and pencils. Plus, there are two external mesh pockets for water bottles. And you can cycle safely thanks to the strategically-placed reflectors offering 360° visibility, enhanced further by attaching a light to the bike-light loop.
