    Comments about TheNorthFace BOREALIS BACKPACK:

    I can always rely on North Face to create an exceptional backpack for life's adventures!
    This backpack is my everyday bag for school and my job as a lifeguard, and I have found no faults in it. It is able to carry all of my equipment for work and enough supplies to get me through my day. Also, the cushioned back side allows great comfort for long excursions either to the beach, the mountains, or even for those long days at school. If you're looking for a strong, spacious bag, practical for everyday life, then this bag is perfect for you! North Face even offers different styles for the backpack which I thought was pretty cool!

            I love this backpack for school. It's extremely durable and I have a lot of space for my books and my laptop and iPad (which both have special compartments). I use this for school travel and it has a simple design that matches a lot of things, it's very practical and it may be a little pricey but it's worth the cost!

                Things I like:
                1. Super comfortable. The ergonomic design really stands out. I can hardly feel the pressure even I stuffed it.
                2. Nice lined pockets. They are very laptop/pad/glass-screen friendly. They are gonna be the perfect home for your valuable stuffs.
                3. Durable. It's a North Face, so~.
                4. Looks cool. It has a wild but stylish feeling.

                Things I don't like so much:
                1. It feels a little rigid. The whole backside feels like a plastic plate. You can't bend and put it into smaller space. But I think it's part of ergonomic design so it can relive the pressure on your back.
                2. The main compartment could be thicker. Once I put two 800-pages hard-cover textbooks in it, it reaches its limit. If you need more space, it wouldn't be your perfect choice.

                  Comments about TheNorthFace BOREALIS BACKPACK:

                  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.
