North Face Access Pack’s Main Compartment Pops Up Like A Car’s Hood

The problem with today’s backpack is the zipper – the main compartment zipper, to be exact.

Instead of the usual zipper for the main compartment, it has a rigid pop-open top (think a car’s hood) that opens at the push of a custom-made quick release latch. Unlike regular soft zipper opening, the bag will remain wide open for as long as you need and when you are done, just slam (well, may be not that hard) it back and it is shut and secured.
