The North Face Hot Shot is a 26-liter capacity pack made to keep up with you, hot shot. FlexVent injection-molded shoulder straps and a padded Airmesh back panel ensure you'll be comfortable doing whatever it is you're doing, hot shot. Okay, I'll stop calling you hot shot. A large main compartment features a laptop sleeve and organization so you can keep your stuff where you know you're going to find it. A secondary compartment also features organization. North Face didn't forget about mesh side water bottle pockets either, so no worries, you have that feature included as well. No worries. I almost called you hot shot again. Oops.
The North Face Hot Shot Backpack brings the heat it at every level with a padded laptop sleeve, compatible for 15 inch laptops or a hydration pack with the included hydration clip/port. The Hot Shot has the right style that's at home on the trail or on the way to your next class. New FlexVent injection-molded shoulder straps deliver comfort no matter how much stuff you pack in the bag and the Airmesh back panel keeps you comfy when the temp warms up.
Newly designed Hot Shot pack from The North Face!
Inspired by hardcore hiking packs, this streamlined, 26-liter pack efficiently stores your gear while you're hitting the pavement around town, or traveling in remote locations. Large main compartment features an internal laptop sleeve (fits most 15" laptops), with a secondary zip pocket with internal organization compartments. Daisy chains on the front pocket provides additional capabilities to loop-in more gear.
The generously sized North Face Hot Shot pack is a panel-loader with plenty of the technical features you need for an all-day adventure.

I've used a Jansport backpack since I was in elementary school and have loved the clean, simple look. I upgraded to this pack for two reasons:
1. Jansports don't do well in rain and it gets quite wet in Michigan during winter and spring.
2. Jansports get quite uncomfortable when you start to load heavy textbooks into it.
This bag not only looks good but has a dedicated laptop AND iPad compartment that can also be used to hold a water bladder. It fits my laptop along with a couple textbooks and folders no problem. Also, the secondary pocket has your standard organizational slots for pens, cell phones, etc. The pack is very water resistant and it has two external pockets on either side for water bottles. But the best part of the pack is how comfortable it is when you're wearing it. The difference between a 10 pound Jansport and a 10 pound Hot Shot blew me away. And when you're not busy commuting to school, throw a bladder and your camping gear into the bag for a bomber day pack. Versatile, comfortable and looks great.
I really do love this back pack! But I will say I like to go hard here and I prefer to spend just a bit more and go for the Big Shot! I would just rather have that extra space! Love this pack but out of both of them I personally prefer the Big Shot! Go big but if you don't need the extra space the Hot Shot will be perfect!
