I just bought the pack and have been using it for just over 1 week. The only uses for it to this point have been to carry my laptop, several folders, and a few books.

The quality of the bag is superb - just as you would expect from TNF.

My opinion about the bag as a school bag is that this is a fine product for that purpose. The main compartment is not huge, but sufficient if you only carry a computer and a few smaller books / folders.

As a day pack, the bag would suffice for minimal supplies and preparation gear. The elastic bungee on the back is handy, the water bottle pockets on the side are sufficient for a Nalgene to fit comfortably, the straps and back panel are comfortable, and the bag has water resistant properties.

Overall I am very pleased with this product.

I really like this backpack but there is a decent amount of pros and cons.

PROS:
-Lots of pockets: My last backpack didn't have nearly as many pockets so this feature is quite nice. It keeps all of my belongings organized.
-Two mesh side pockets: This is a requirement for me. I like keeping items in here where I need quick access to.
-Large smaller pocket: It's incredibly deep, which is nice because I carry around a lot of items and it doesn't bulge out either. Fits my brick-of-a-laptop charger in there along with my mouse, and it still doesn't bulge out.

CONS:
-Laptop sleeve is not deep enough: The main reason why I needed a new backpack was because there was a hole in the laptop pocket of my old backpack. I was iffy about getting this backpack because someone mentioned it can only fit a 13" laptop. Now I can see why, literally. My laptop sticks out at the top because the pad at the bottom of the sleeve is too high up. This is where most of the star reduction comes from.
-Too stiff: My last backpack was very comfortable; it had soft padding and rested against my back nicely. The one I received from TNF is extremely stiff and slightly uncomfortable. I'm hoping it breaks in but it might take a while.
-Awkward interior design: The bottom pad from the laptop sleeve bulges out, which annoys me quite a lot. I decided to just put my laptop outside of the sleeve and my folders inside of it; otherwise, my folders would be bent from the bulge sticking out.

I decided to keep this backpack mainly because of the amount of pockets it has but I expected better design/quality for the price. Every person I pass by literally has a TNF backpack. I assumed there was a reason why, but from the one I received I might not buy another one anytime soon.

The borealis backpack by north face is the greatest backpack I've ever owned. It's light weight to carry anywhere you go but also durable enough to last a life time. This should be your go to backpack when looking to buy one!

Comments about TheNorthFace BOREALIS BACKPACK:

My daughter kept going through backpack after backpack for school. We decided to try this North Face backpack and spend the extra money. Her words, "it is amazing!" Lots of compartments to put all of her school supplies/textbooks/etc. The other great thing is it helps lighten the load because of the extra padding on straps. Not only does it function great, but it is also great looking. I think we have found a backpack that will last her for several years!

Perfect for college

Comments about TheNorthFace BOREALIS BACKPACK:

My friend recently purchased this backpack and after I saw it I fell in love and bought one myself. The amount of compartments is perfect for everything a college student may need to hold. It won't easily fit three textbooks in it at once with your laptop and binder but plenty of space for one or two. Back panel makes carrying this backpack more enjoyable and less of a chore. I am extremely happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend.

Comments about TheNorthFace BOREALIS BACKPACK:

Purchased the grey borealis not too long ago online, direct from the north face website. I was pleasantly surprised at the delivery speed as it arrived so fast, I could barely believe it. Of course, do we really care about the delivery when you really want the review on the product? Well I can say that the pleasantries extend to the product.

I was worried the backpack would not fit my 15" mbp, but it did! Even with a case on it. It does stick out a tiny bit, but not noticeable. The bottom padding under the laptop sleeve keeps my mbp safe. Love the compartments the bag has as well. If I only carry a 15" mbp, a few small devices, a small notebook, some pens and other small essentials, the backpack hardly expands making it look slim. I can imagine putting a sweater in there, an iPad, some snacks, a book, and a couple of water bottls on the sides and the backpack would still hold it all fine. You probably can fit a ton of textbooks (maybe 2?) if you are a student, but who really want to carry that many anyways? That's what a locker or car is for!

Overall, backpack is an eye candy, comfortable, and has room to carry just the right amount of things without looking overly bulky. I would likely buy another, if I need to.

Awesome Back-pack

Comments about TheNorthFace BOREALIS BACKPACK:

This is my first North Face back-pack, it is awesome. It fits everything very well, there is enough room for my MacBook Pro, iPad, plus school books. It is very lightweight. When the bag is full it does not feel heavy on the back as the weight distribution is amazing. I would recommend this back-pack to family and friends in a heartbeat. Great buy, for a decent price, plus the lifetime warranty is an extra added bonus. Y'all won't be disappointed if you purchase this back-pack.

    Comments about TheNorthFace BOREALIS BACKPACK:

    I have bought this back to carry around my macbook pro 15 inch and around 4 full sized books. The weight of the books and the macbook pro isn't noticeable at all! The only down side is the really tight fit for the macbook pro the back is made for max a 15 inch lapotop (the macbook pro i 15.4 inch) because of that is the space for the mac a little small. But it fits without a lot of problem (/ or effort).

    A great bag for a good price.
