In 2005, wearers of the North Face attire became the targets of robbery in Prince George's County, Maryland. A similar trend occurred in South Korea in the early 2010s where it became a status symbol, resulting in children being bullied or having their North Face apparel stolen.
Inside the pack, there is a built-in suspension system that keeps the contents about two inches off the ground. This feature protects when you accidentally throw your bag onto a concrete surface, forgetting there's a valuable piece of equipment inside. Furthermore, with the suspension system, there is padding that seems to be about one-inch thick around the bottom of the bag.
As one of the most comfortable backpacks we've tested, we are happy to recommend it for all-day, anywhere use. The backpack straps feature foam that has a built-in venting system integrated inside of it. The foam is flexible and lays flat on the shoulders, with its construction providing an even weight distribution. The adjustable straps are spaced widely apart which offers both a unisex and versatile fit for those that are large to small. Affixed to the straps is a sternum strap that can be slid up and down on a built-in track. The track is long, which we like, giving you lots of options for weight distribution and fit.
The integrated hip belt, which is hard to find on many laptop backpacks, adds versatility to this bag. Given its less techy and more outdoorsy design, it also functions nicely as a hiking backpack. The hip belt is pretty thin without additional padding and can be tucked away into the expandable water bottle holders if you don't want the straps flopping around when not in use. This model is a comfortable laptop backpack that we would recommend for any situation where you might need a daypack.

On its face, launching new products seems like a straightforward way for a brand to grow revenue. But if it goes wrong, it can be a costly endeavor. Four founders spoke with Modern Retail about how they thought through the decision to discontinue certain products.
This technology is very important for an organization like the North Face, which is trying to build out its e-commerce platform4. Companies that use e-commerce face significant hurdles to get customers through the full purchase funnel without losing interest; around 70% of online carts are abandoned before check-out5. Brands that sell products online do not have the luxury of a knowledgeable sales associate to help a customer sort through their many options, leaving customers free to opt out of purchase. Watson is bridging this gap for The North Face. It provides the customer with a customized list of items, both removing friction for the customer as well as improving efficiency and conversion rates for The North Face5. 59ce067264
