Why We Like The Borealis Mini 10L Backpack

The Borealis Mini saves us from juggling our coffee mug, lunch, snacks, books, and all the other little things we might need throughout the day. The compact size fits those essentials without bulking our look, while the rugged build stands its own against bustling sidewalks and crowded subways rides.

Useful for hikes, gym

I've been using this backpack for about 6 months now. I mainly use it for road trips, day hikes, and the gym. On hikes, it can fit about 1 to 2 L of water, sunscreen, insect, repellent, a few snacks, and a light piece of clothing / windbreaker. The mesh pocket inside the main compartment is very useful for holding valuables. The side pockets are narrow, can hold sunscreen, bug repellent, sunglasses, or a phone. Very comfortable for all day wear. I bought the white color way; gets scuffed/stained however washes out in the washer easily. Very pleased with this backpack.

Cute Backpack

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Definitely a cute backpack. A lot of pocket room for so many things. It can fit a Galaxy s7 tablet in the inner back pocket. You have plenty of room inside the main pocket for a 20fl oz water. A couple small notebooks, a wallet, makeup bag, snacks, or maybe a tshirt, socks, etc. The little pocket inside can fit a lot as well, a small wallet, keys, money, pens, lipstick, small items basically. The outer front pocket is good for some smaller items as well. The elastic on front is great of you need to cinch a small cap or something. Nice little handle on the top to carry by hand. Zippers open & close smoothly which is important. Straps are nice & thick & comfortable. Now the cons, the two small pockets on the sides, I don't think it's that much of a con, you can still pack small items in them, but one side doesn't have a lip on top to protect things from falling out, while the other side does. Stick a chapstick, lipstick, small bottle opener im those little pockets, but they definitely will tear the material if you over stuff them. I don't think they are super useful, but just extra pockets to shove something in quickly if need be. The material on the bottom I did notice on the site looks flimsy & really is in person. There is no padding or protection on the bottom portion which which makes me feel this bag will tear on the bottom first! It's made so thin where you would think should have the most protection. Disappointed about the bottom being so flimsy. Don't randomly stick an open pen because it may tear the bottom. Sharp items would not be smart. The pros outweight the cons which is really good, but I feel like the price is more for the name. The quality was not what it could have been. A double layer on the bottom would have really made a big difference. It's the reason for my 4 stars. Other than the bottom this bag is great. This might not be a huge issue for anyone else, but I have gone through many backpacks where the bottom was more padded, since it's going to end up on a floor at some point should have been given more attention.

Just bought our second one!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Awesome little backpack! We homeschool and our 9 and 6 year olds use these to take school on the go; whether in the woods, the library, the trails or just where the wind blows us... this bag is the perfect size to take along and carry everything we need for the day.
