    Details

    This one's for the ladies.

    More than just a ho-hum unisex pack, The North Face Women's Borealis Backpack comes in a women-specific design, so you can tackle the day in total comfort. If you happen to take it out on a hike, you'll appreciate the FlexVent suspension system, removable hip belt, and sternum strap while you carry a heavy hiking load. But don't think the Borealis is some kind of one trick pony, because with a dedicated laptop compartment, tablet sleeve, and padded sunglasses pocket, it will be your go-to bag for the morning commute into the office and weekends spent exploring the city.

    Love It!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this backpack for my wife. Here is what she had to say about it. This backpack is much roomier than I expected, though the back pocket for lap top is too small for my thick company laptop (I just put my laptop on the main compartment as I have a laptop sleeve to protect it). I’ve used it as my hand carry to Europe and still had room to put my small cross body purse in (Delta only allows one personal bag and a small luggage carry-on). It keeps my fragile souvenirs safe. It’s great to use for backpacking/hiking too. It’s also small enough to put in Six Flags, Disneyland, Universal Studio lockers and when riding different rides. The pockets keep me organized. I normally use this backpack for work (laptop, laptop charger and mouse, umbrella, water bottle, lunch, and heels (to change to once I’m in the office)), making it easy to grab and go as I head out of the house. I especially love the small front pocket that’s surprisingly can stuff so many things in the last minute and/or to easily reach for stuff (i.e. wallet, lipstick/chap stick, meds, keys, cellphone, passport, etc.). It’s also comfortable to carry and I appreciate the adjustable straps, especially since I’m petite.

    Great Women's School Backpack

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This backpack is shaped nicely for those studious women. It's very comfortable and the overall design is easy to organize for school.

    One Great Bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    About one of these for my oldest daughter and had to get one for my younger daughter also. They have put these through the ringer, these bags are amazing.

    School pack for daughter

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My tenth grader had patiently used the same pack for five or six years so I was happy to upgrade. She loves this one. It's got way more options for organizing, and as a semi serious daypack it also offered good lessons in not overloading and in weight distribution. This one should see her all the way through high school. Well made with solid straps etc. a damn good book bag!

    I LOVE this backpack!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'd been eyeing the Borealis up for a while and after I spilled chili in my trusty jansport, it was time to upgrade! Wishing I would have done so sooner! I use it to lug my stuff (lunch, nalgene, to-go coffee mug, sunglasses, umbrella, a couple books, uniform, ect.) to and from work, but it could hold plenty more and I plan to use it as a personal item while flying. I've taken it along a couple day hikes as well and the straps are comfy and the back panel is nice and cushy. I chose the black and its super sleek - especially with the hip belt removed for my commute.

    Great item, customer service, the works!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This item was just as described and as usual, Back Country's customer service was wonderful! Super fast shipping is always a plus!

    Unanswered Question

    Can a 32 oz nalgene bottle fit in the side water bottle pockets?
