          I was gifted this product for school and I've now had it for about a year and it's been through middle and high school so it's definitely durable! I used it mainly for school and can definitely support a big load, and shows little to no signs of stress when pushed to its capacity. Charger in the backpack has done excelent and charges devices fast, and is easy to work with. Overall, this is a great product and can definitely survive through anything from a camping trip to an everyday commute to school and back!

            I worked at The North Face in South Coast Plaza years ago and have to say this is hands down the best pack we make for students. I go to HSU now, and gotta say this product is phenomenal. Ive taken the inductor on road trips, planes, boats, hot air balloons etc. and i cannot explain how well it has held up. It is nice to see this pack is still being made, and hope it sticks around because overall it is a great product! The built in charger is a life savor and the bright inner colors really do come in handy. Also, rain has never been an issue, which is impressive since it is always raining here... Needless to say this bag kicks butt, so if your on the fence about getting it i hope this post changes your mind.

            PS The North Face store #506 in Costa Mesa, CA is the BEST!

            Pretty pack -- with some drawbacks

            Overall, this is a nice pack that looks good, has solid water protection, and is reasonably roomy. The built-in Joey charging system is nice but I think one could have even more flexibility in a pack by simply using a portable charger as needed. In general, the pockets/sections/sleeves work well. The bright contrast color helps when searching for items that are hidden in pockets.

            I currently own seven backpacks and their uses range from on the water (waterproof) to ultralight hiking to daily work. The reason I purchased this backpack was to replace a TNF Overhaul that could not be repaired (was purchased in 2007). That bag was the ultimate, and significantly better than the Inductor. The new Overhaul 40 is an intriguing bag and has been decent, but it does not add up to the daily work backpack that was the Overhaul.

            I really enjoy the Inductor pack and appreciate the fit. Overall, I think it's a nice pack. That said, it lacks quality in some areas which is concerning considering its ridiculous price point. First, the water bottle holders/pockets are the worst I have ever used. My stainless bottles shoot out of the holders like missiles when I try to put it in an overhead bin on a flight. It's really stressful, honestly. Also, if you pack the middle compartment of the bag, which is the open/general space, the contents push out against the bottle holder such that it's really difficult to get a bottle to fit in that space. So, the most serious design flaws are the bottle holders on each side and the way the middle pocket compromises the bottle holders.

            I guess I would say the bag has been good but it's nowhere near as useful or awesome as my original Overhaul. I should also note that the laptop compartment is really nice but the discontinuation of the velcro strap to hold it in place was a massive oversight. Bags from 2014 had this feature but it was not continued, unfortunately.

            Overall, nice bag but doesn't merit the price point.

              My wife surprised me as a Christmas gift. It's amazing. Fits all my books. Looks great. Feels great. Expensive, but you get what you pay for. If you have a backpack that's bad just wait and save up and get this one. Well with it. Great gift.
