Each compartment is closed with a zipper, so there should be no worries about <a href="http://www.northfaceoutletlocationsr.com anything falling out of the compartments. The shoulder straps are padded nicely, so it won't be such a burden carrying a lot of items at one time. This particular item can be found for sale at a price of about $55, which is a good price compared to most backpacks like it. However, at times this backpack does go on sale and can be purchased for as low as $35 to $40.The North Face Jester Backpack is another great school bag. This backpack is mostly made up of one solid color along with black, but there are some models that have unique designs.
