The North Face Women's Vault Backpack is a minimalist pack for the school crowd. At 26.5 liters it carries exactly what you want to bring along and none of what you don't. The padded laptop sleeve is separated from the main compartment so books and other odds and ends can't bump or scratch it. Even your tablet has it's own padded home to rest in when not in use. The flexible yoke is built right into the shoulder straps so even though you have to drag yourself out of bed for 8am class, you're still comfortable when walking or busing over.
