    NORTH FACE BOREALIS BACKPACK

      I've owned an earlier model Borealis for many years, it finally 'quit'. Ordered the current version and then ordered another for my wife. Backcountry.com's service and execution were perfect, arrived in 2 days, as advertised. Could not have been smoother. The Borealis is about the perfect size and design for most non 'big carrying needs, great all around every day pack.

      The swiss army knife of backpacks

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The North Face's Borealis pack has all the features you want and none you don't. This is one of best and most functional packs I've ever used. It really excels in filling the need between work and the trail. Sometimes I find myself in a situation where I only have an hour or so to get out but I'm coming straight from work and I don't want to leave my laptop in my car. This pack handles that transition perfect. Whoever the genius was behind this pack really nailed it. Buy one. You won't regret it.

      Great all purpose backpack

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is my go-to pack for college. It has a pocket for everything, lightweight, and I like the curved back support. I fill it up with my computer, books, lunch. Because of the nice long zippers, I don't need to unpack everything to find stuff. It just sits by my leg, and unzipped, and I can reach in and easily grab whatever I need.
