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.

    It's a great backpack that's stylish and fits all your stuff. It's super lightweight and the smaller pockets are great to get to your phone, wallet, headphones or whatever you need in a jiffy.

      Comments about TheNorthFace BOREALIS BACKPACK:

      I needed a new backpack for college and this was perfect. The laptop sleeve fit my 15 inch laptop, but because it was a thicker computer (it's a gaming computer) I wasn't going to be able to use it. I was very sad to have to return it because I loved this pack very much for its features and look. 10/10 would buy again. (Also, if you're worried about the laptop sleeve, it will fit you computer as long as it's not very thick.

          This purchase was as good as it gets. I have had several backpacks for work use and have "blown through" all of them. My job requires weekly travel and I use my backpack daily for computer, iPad, files, etc. The previous brand have broken down quickly with numerous issues (broken zipper, torn pockets, etc.) This North Face bag is strudy and stylish. I owe it to my son for recommending North Face, as he has had his NF backback for 4 years and it is still in use.

            I bought this for my husband as a thank you gift and he loves it. His other backpack tore completely so I'm hoping the Northface brand lives up to its hype and last longer than his other one (different brand). The backpack is incredibly roomy and holds all of his heavy textbooks. Nice looking too.

            I purchased this for my son. His previous one he had for two years and was stolen at college. It was in excellent shape. He liked it so much that he wanted a second one. Good testimony to a fine product!! It's not the largest of backpacks but it suits him well as he doesn't like to carry anything too bulky.

              I really love this backpack, it was totally what I hoped it would be. The only issue I've had is that there's a lot of space, but that space doesn't seem to stretch out very well. It will go down, but not out. This hasn't bothered me too much though, and the other features more than make up for it. A fantastic backpack.
