My pack color scheme is very nice and eye-catching (BLACK & YELLOW). The look and design is very modern and I feel good carrying it. The front shoulder strap design looks nice with diamond stitching in the material and diamond-shaped cutouts visible through transparent mesh, that also serves as air ventilation. Pads and additional air ventilation against my back help make this a comfortable pack to carry.

The inside offers moderate volume available for my stuff. My laptop, books and gym clothes usually occupy most of the space...with lots of pockets left over for my keys and other small items. The laptop sleeve and 3 additional pockets are lined on one side with a very soft fleece. I would have preferred the lining on both sides, but the pockets provide adequate protection. Additional pockets are the right size for my small items.

The amount of space is perfect for use as a day-pack to school or work. I don't believe the available space would allow me to make this bag my first choice as a primary overnight travel bag unless I am traveling light and compact

I especially like the zip pocket accessible from top outside of the bag. This pocket is fully fleece lined, feels like soft glove on the inside and is perfect for my phone.

A couple of omissions I would have liked to have seen on this bag, and seems like they could be, are a zip pocket accessible from the bottom front and a zipped mesh pocket in the inside. Even without these, there is still a lot of well organized space and this is one of my favorite bags I have owned.

Overall, this is a great backpack. But the problem with it comes from the back of the backpack. It literally kills my shirts. Because of the mesh behind the backpack, my clothes got worn at the spot where the backpack touches my lower back. I didn't realize that after awhile. Same spot on every shirt. I am not happy about that. And I certainly don't know how to fix it. So please fix it!

Comments about The North Face Borealis Backpack:

The look is very appealing to the eye – tough, durable, sporty with a touch of urban fashion and style. This a good commuter backpack with many pockets to store your belongings (ie. Laptop, phone, water bottle, pens, folders, etc.). It fits everything one would need on a daily basis. However, I would not recommend this bag for overnight traveling as the bag is designed well for flat and square items.

The shoulder and chest straps have a great fit and wraps nicely on your torso along with the a comfortable padding against your back.

Overall this is a great day backpack for commuting, work and/or school.

        This is a great commuter backpack. I use it to commute to work with my laptop that I always have on me. I love the fact that there are so many pockets and it is very durable. I use it for traveling too because it is so roomy. It fits everything very well and I have a place for everything that I need. The North Face never fails me.

          My house got robbed and the thief used my old north face backpack to carry more items. He probably got away with 50% more stuff than he expected because that backpack was super durable and had a lot of room in it. After I got robbed, I quickly realized I Needed a new one, so I bought this one. It does the job quite well. Thanks north face

          Comments about The North Face Borealis Backpack:

          This is my very first North Face backpack and I must say, I'm very impressed with it. I love the design of it and it's super sturdy. I'm the type of person that typically packs a lot (jacket, phone, chargers, laptop, books, ect.) and this backpack seems to be a bit small to me. I also tried to put my 15.4" HP laptop in it and it was a super tight fit. It didn't stick out or anything, it was just really tight in the sleeve that's in the backpack. Other than that, I love the material it's made out of and just the overall backpack in general. I can tell it is well worth the money invested in it. My only cons are the limited amount of space and the laptop sleeve space.

              The straps and backing are padded to provide great support and comfort. Well-designed for ventilation as well.

                  This backpack is horrible if you plan to use it for school. You can't fit more than 2 small binders and a folder or 2 in here without using force to cram things inside. Even while empty the bag is ridiculously heavy and actually caused me breathing issues while climbing stairs. The straps never stay in place, you'll be constantly adjusting them. Additionally, the bag will not stand up on its own, it's constantly tipping over and if you put anything in the main compartment the smaller pockets become increasingly difficult to open and use. Do not buy this bag, it's not worth the money.

                        I have had 2 older model Borealis in the past which I really liked. My wife has one now. Unfortunately TNF has ruined the backpack with the latest redesign. They have added a very rigid back plate which ruins the pack and they have converted the Borealis into a laptop/school backpack which is worthless for day hiking. Even though TNF states that this is a 28L pack, the same as my previous one, this version does not hold anywhere as much due to the backplate and the narrower sides. This is a real shame as the previous Borealis were great. To make matters worse, the back zipper snags due to the new stiff handle and backplate. Wish I could buy an old design some where.

                          After doing a lot of research for a quality backpack that I could use around my city and for minimalist travel, I settled on The North Face Borealis. I cannot be happier with my decision. The ergonomics and design of this bag are incredible. It's not too bulky when fully loaded, and due to the sturdy, rigid spine in the bag, combined with the overall slim profile, your load always sits flat on your back and the weight isn't far from your own center of gravity. Previous packs that I have owned had a flexible spine and a fatter, spherical shape, which allowed the pack to sag and protrude from my back about 1.5'-2', a nuisance when you use public transit or are travelling. The North Face Borealis doesn't allow this to happen. I have only had this bag a few days and I'm incredibly impressed by it.

                            I bought this backpack as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend who's style is minimalistic. He needed a backpack that is good for both outdoor activities and everyday use. This backpack is comfortable, versatile and fits all his needs. It has a firm back so he can't feel his laptop or other stuff inside. While it may look small, there is a lot of room and pockets for all items. When it's full it doesn't bulge out like other backpacks tend to do. My boyfriend loved it so much he refused to take off the tags for the first couple of days!

                            It's a very durable backpack but just too heavy. It distributes weight well but is on the small side. I'm returning it.

                                As it says old school. I bought the pack to replace a Borealis that I bought somewhere around 1999. Not the same pack. I didn't think that the laptop sleeve would be a hinderance, but for me it is. I was looking for a little daypack that I could dump stuff into. TNF has been great but I need to find something else.

                                    I just picked this up while traveling in Portland. It is replacing a smaller messenger bag which just wasn't up to traveling. Right away, after loading it up for my walk to work, I knew it was very confortable. It really sold me at the airport though, when they informed me my suitcase was overweight. Instead of the $75 fee, I stuffed the Borealis full and so it almost paid for itself. Even overstuffed and with sneakers and a rain jacket in the external straps, it was still very comfortable. A great bag!

                                      This backpack is terrible. I had an older NF backpack that was lost to a house fire. I purchased this as a replacement as that model was no longer made as they were about equivalent sized. This thing has a giant piece of plastic in the back. The plastic bends if it is not carrying a laptop, making this backpack awkward and awful. The bendy plastic thing proceeds to limit what you can get in/how you can pack the bag. Because it is a NF bag, I'm sure it will last forever, which in this case is a horrible realization.

This NorthFace backpack has held up when i was hiking and i was just tossing it around. It is a great backpack for everyday use and amazing for hiking and cycling. I highly recommend buying the Borealis.

                                            I love the look of this backpack. However it doesn't have a place to store the waist straps like the older version of this backpack. For someone who's mainly using this backpack for college, the waist straps aren't necessary, and look funny just dangling. Other than wishing it had pockets to stuff the waist straps into, I would recommend this backpack to anyone for any use.

                                              After my first semester of college, the padding that sits at the bottom of the computer slot came out of my backpack. A little disappointed about this considering I have yet to have it for even a year. Other than that I love how sturdy and light it is.

                                              Nice pack, but the plastic back plate is not malleable. Very rigid and I'm not a fan.

                                                My son who is in high school wanted this backpack for school. It's bigger than his previous Nike BP. Very durable to carry all of his heavy stuff. He also likes the different compartments. They keep his stuff organized.

                                                This is definitely the best bookbag I've ever had and the quality is top notch! The only issues I had were that it was sort of heavy on its own and it can be hard to load (but it fits a lot inside). I think both are a result of the great quality and materials they used though!

                                                  This is the best backpack that I have ever used. It has a really good quality and also it has a very big space for collecting our things. Also the belt and the bag make you feel relax and confortable!

                                                  It is great for school and can fit all of my books. I would buy is again and again.
