The North Face Kaban Transit Laptop Backpack is a trusty commuting companion. Considered as the older and bigger brother to North Face's Microbyte Backpack, the Kaban Transit is a powerhouse of an urban-travelling backpack. Constructed with a durable 420D nylon, 900D polyester with a water-resistant TPE PVC coating and reinforced with a 1670D ballistic nylon base that protects the bag from rough surfaces, drops and falls, the Kaban Transit Laptop Backpack will not allow anything getting to your gear. The Kaban Transit also features a main compartment that comes with a raised, padded, fleece-lined laptop sleeve compatible for up to a 17" laptop and that can fully open to a lay-flat position which is checkpoint friendly and TSA-approved.

The Kaban Transit features a rigorous organisation panel accessed via the front D-door comparment and comprises of a fleece-lined tablet sleeve that will fit most medium-sized tablets, a smaller fleece-lined media pocket, a secure zippered pocket, 2 mesh pockets and a slip pocket for any other bits and pieces. The tall and spacious main compartment is accessed via the top U shaped zip, on top of the zip is a pocket is available for stashing quick access items. Daisy chain stitching can be located at the front of the bag, giving the option to lash accessories and tags. Two stretch mesh water bottle pockets are on either side of the bag. A reflective bike light loop and reflective shoulder strap tabs provide reflectivity - keeping you safe and visible at night.

For those especially long commutes, the Kaban Transit Laptop Backpack supports your travel with North Face's FlexVent™ suspension system comprising of custom injection-moulded shoulder straps, a padded mesh back panel with a spine channel that are ergonomically fitted and a wicking lumbar panel for maximum support and ventilation. The FlexVent™ shoulder straps create innovative flex zones that alleviate clavicle hot spots, pressure-point strain and neck pain. A sternum strap offers added stability and load control and the sternum strap also doubles as a whistle. All North Face bags come with accreditation from the American Chiropractic Association certifying that they've been engineered to carry the heaviest of loads.

Customer Reviews

  • “Pretty nice bag and can stand on its own. This bag is very sturdy. So sturdy, that it can stand on its own with all the stuff that i had to put in it. The back pouch for the 17" laptop holds my 15. 6" zbook perfectly with little room to move. One thing that i would have liked with the bag was more utility pockets inside. Overall the bag is very nicely built and sits very firmly with your back.”

  • “A fantastic backpack for work or travel. Very comfortable, premium quality and water resistant backpack, it stands upright too (unless you unbalance the bag by distributing the weight all in the back with the laptop without filling the main section). The organisation pockets at the front are very handy and the rear (where the laptop is stashed) handles like a second spacer from your main contents. It's already been taken out in heavy rain and no compartment was wet on the inside. Only quibble, could use another spacer in the main component. Great backpack!”
