Great backpack
This is an amazing backpack. I fit everything I need in here and it is much bigger than you would think. It is very light and comfortable. The nylon is very durable and can take a beating.

You won't Regret purchasing this bag
The bag arrived on time 3-5 days. The color looks just the same as the picture. I had a same bag in black for years. It is roomy to carry a lot of heavy books and a laptop. The back part is well cushioned, so it is confortable to carry. Love it.

good stuff
I got this backpack as a present to carry my all of my computer and other tech. items. I could not be happier with this Nothface item. It is very comfortable as a sling or as a backpack. There are plenty of pockets.

Perfect size
I have found that most backpacks these days have too many pockets of every shape and size for my preference. The Borealis has one large pocket for books with a inner slot for your laptop. One smaller organizational pocket with a number of pouches for pens, tools, pocket knife, planner... and a little outer pocket. It has two water bottle holders one at each side which hold nalgenes as well as skinnier stainless steel water bottles. Its the perfect size for my college life everyday school needs and for day hikes. I am totally happy with it. The waist strap is less durable than some of the more expensive north face backpacks but overall its great. Altrec has great discounts and timely delivery.
