Why We Like The Borealis 28L Backpack

Whether we’re headed to class or a coffee shop, we count on the Borealis Backpack from the North Face to store all of our study session supplies without compromising comfort.

Good bag for school

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Good bag for school but if you pack up too much stuff in the pencil zipper it makes it hard to reach the rest of your stuff

I would buy this again

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used to have the Jester and realized I love NorthFace backpacks but it was too small. I got this bag and it's like literally 100x better. There is so much space it is huge

Best investment I made for my chaotic school life

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Perfect backpack! It fits my 16-in laptop, 13-in Pad, 2 books, notebook, snacks, and all other miscellaneous items that I need. I love that it has different pockets that helps you stay organized and keep things separated with minimum effort. As someone who is always on-the-go, this backpack has helped me to stay organized despite carrying a bunch of stuff.

Terrible strap quality

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a college student and received this bag as a recent Christmas gift. Within the first two weeks of the semester, both straps began to tear from the bag. I was distraught because I do not carry extraneous loads daily. For a product of this price, I expect it to last longer than 2 weeks. I was also told when purchasing that there is little to no difference between the women's and men's bags. THAT IS FALSE. If you have a large chest, the straps on this bag do not contour and will pinch your arms. I'm upset that I have to sacrifice the color and spacious capacity I wanted in the men's bag for the comfort of the women's bag.

Best Backpack Ever

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love this backpack. I am a college student, and all my school necessities fits perfectly in here. I love that there is a separate pocket where I can put my laptop in. It such an amazing backpack and extremely durable. I also especially love the color I chose.
