    Class, trail, or travel?the Borealis does it all.

    One of the most proven crossover daypacks on the market, The North Face Borealis Backpack suits your needs whether you're heading to class, hiking a trail, or on an overnight adventure. The North Face built this thing with Cordura and ballistic nylon fabrics that take the beatings you'll dish out in your everyday, or not-so-everyday, adventures.

    The large main compartment easily carries your whole mess of textbooks or enough gear for a long day hike. A comfortably padded air-mesh back panel and FlexVent injection-molded shoulder straps keep you feeling good even if you're carrying quite the load. It's nice to get away from technology for a while, but a padded laptop and tablet sleeve keeps your computers safe when you do need them.

    Fantastic Backpack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This backpack has soft pickets for a phone, tablet and laptop as well as plenty of space in therein compartment. The piece of the backpack that touches your back is not soft fabric but is a structured/firm piece so it holds its shape. It's medium size, not too small and not too large.

    Love this backpack

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Love this backpack, I was really worried it wouldnt fit my HUGE laptop (dell precision m4700) but it doesssss!, its really hard to put it in the internal sleeve but I am ok with it, when I use it I dont feel lot of weight, so I think it does at great work on it, feels so light, I am sure you can hike for hours and this buddy will make your life easier.

    Sweet backpack

      I actually bought this to use as my kids diaper bag. Plenty of storage for that and I don't have to carry the purse thing that my wife bought as a diaper bag. My favorite aspects are the weight(extremely light) and the comfort that it provides when you slip it on (straps are super comfortable). My 8 year old cousin tried taking it the other day as it does look pretty good too.

      10/10 would recommend

        This backpack speaks adventure with a little bit of class and reliability. At first glance, the hard back was a little odd, but after use, it helps quite a bit with support. This puppy is also loaded up with efficiently placed pockets, including wide drink pockets on the sides. This backpack doesn't have the largest computer holding sleeve. Overall, this beaut is a great backpack for its price and can really bring out the adventure in yourself.

        Great Backpack

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I took it on my trip to Europe. Great day backpack companion. Not too large and not too small. Don't have a laptop but i carried my ipad and iphone and there were very well protected. Lightweight. Easy to maneuver for your essentials in the plane, buses and trains. Good accessibility. Good number of compartments and zippers. Bought the cosmic blue asphalt gray. It looks very pretty. I also have TNF Surge Transit backpack which i have used it for overnight and longer hikes.The North Face has always been my backpack of choice and so far, never gone wrong!

        Useful pack for daily use!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I am a master student. In weekdays I use this pack to carry my notebook, books, water bottle and etc. Also I pack my workout stuffs such as clean shoes, towel, T-shirts and etc. inside it at the same time. In weekends I like to spend my time travelling around and going for trekking and hiking so that I use this backpack to carry my gear, food and drinking supply. There are plenty of pockets inside it and these make it very useful backpack for my point of view. Back support and straps are really helping if you have to carry your pack for longer term. I strongly suggest it if you are planning to buy these kind of pack.

        Great pack for everyday use!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I work in an office environment and like to get cool gear to "bribe" my sales team. I got about 75 of these as promo giveaways and everyone loves them. They've been used for everything from camping hiking, to tailgating, to school, to business travel, to gym bag and been perfect for it all. Great sleeve for various size laptops/tablets, plenty of pockets inside with a couple external. Straps are comfortable for running through an airport if you're about to miss a flight (I know from experience), All around great pack!

        Will a 15" Macbook Pro fit the laptop sleeve?
        Also, would this be ideal for a carry-on for international travel?

        Hi Mathew, This pack should fit a 15" laptop no problem. Also it will definitely work as a carry on bag and I think that it is plenty big to hold everything you'd need on an international flight. If you need anything else, please reach out to me directly. -Matthew Pizza - Expert Gearhead
