The North Face Vault vs The North Face Jester

The North Face Vault and the North Face Jester, while manufactured and designed by the same company for similar purpose, are two noticeably different bags. The Vault appears to feature a better carrying capacity for larger objects, with two large diagonal openings and elastic water bottle holders. The Vault is a very straightforward, sleek design, and would appear to be the ideal product choice for one's short-term outdoor and sporting needs.

The North Face Jester is similar in structure to the North Face Vault, with the obvious exception of its an additional elastic x-strap for attaching objects externally. This might be a superfluous addition in the context of its intended use, however. These bags are made of the same durable materials, but appear to be intended to function in completely different environments and intensities of use.
