The North Face Women's Borealis Laptop Backpack

Created with a female-specific frame, this Women's Borealis Laptop Backpack from The North Face is ideal for moderate class loads and casual day hikes. With a 1,650-cubic-inch capacity, the Women's Borealis Laptop Backpack easily accommodates a 15-inch laptop, a couple of textbooks and lecture notes in the main compartment. There are also mesh side compartments for water bottles and sealable commuter coffee mugs. The Borealis Laptop Backpack utilizes female-specific FlexVent injection-molded shoulder straps and a supportive Spine Channel back panel. These features make the Women's Borealis Laptop Backpack hugely popular with women frustrated by the sizing shortcomings associated with bargain-bin or deep-discount unisex backpacks. One key caveat to consider is the capacity inside the Borealis Laptop Backpack. If you carry around thick college textbooks with your laptop, you might find the confines a bit constricting compared to larger capacity women's backpacks from The North Face. If this is a potential concern, compare the features in the Borealis with the slightly roomier Women's Recon Backpack from The North Face.

Nice Pack
I bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday and she absolutely loves it. Its not so big as to be cumbersome but not so small it can't fit all her books. Its an ideal size and cut to fit a woman's natural shape. It has very nice padding and a great overall support structure. The brunette brown/acoustic blue really looks a lot better in person! Great product!

Great Bag
My daughter loves this backpack. I bought it for her to take to college. She had the Isabella but wanted a little roomier bag so she could throw her soccer ball in it with everything else. It fits great and is really light weight. It appears to be well made. I would definitely recommend this if you need a mid-size bag.

Pretty Cool Backpack
Ever since, I've wanted a bag where I could safely pack all my things especially my laptop. When I bought this, it fulfills all my need. The bag has a great quality. I remember commenting a friend that this will be one of my lifetime backpacks. The compartment for the laptop bag is with the thick padding for the back which makes me feel secured. All the other compartments are so useful, I could easily pack all my clothes for two days for an overnight stay in a friends house or for a short day hike. The bag also fits perfectly well on my back. I was anxious at first if the design would be just as good in the pictures but when I got it, it never disappoints me. The bag is durable, I don't worry much that it would tear up anytime soon. This will be my lifetime bag for sure. A bit pricey but it sure does justify all the costs.

cool backpack
I am kind of picky in selecting backpacks. Most backpacks are designed either too rough looking or just plain boring so it took a long time for me to find the right one. I liked this backpack when I first saw it because its Tungsten Grey color is just so cool. Also the laptop space and the small pockets for small items which easily get lost in larger single space backpacks are very nice.

This bag is perfect for college students. For high school I had the Heckler, and while that bag is an amazing product also, it is huge for most girls, especially now I won't be carrying around all of my books and such all the time the extra space isn't needed. I was between this bag and the Isabella, which was just a bit to small when I held both and compared. My laptop and my books fit perfectly in this bag and the blue version is adorable! The colors are so bright. Also like all North Face bags, the only way I am going to do any real damage to it is to take a knife to it and slash it. Great product - worth every penny!
