The North Face North Dome Pack. 

TNF’s North Dome combines smart, climber-friendly features into a stylish pack that’s perfect for commuting to the gym. The ample 31L pack has internal pockets for organization and a hydration/laptop sleeve. Testers loved the large front zipper pocket, which has side mesh panels to air out sweaty gym shoes. A sturdy back panel allowed testers to carry it all day stuffed with climbing essentials and work items (laptop) without getting sore shoulders. This, combined with a flat bottom, allowed the pack to stand easily upright. Made of 200D ripstop polyester and DWR treated, the pack is burly enough for outdoor use—though at nearly 3 lbs, best for shorter approaches. MSRP: $129
