I always knew that the North Face had incredible packs but I was blown away when I used this pack for the first time. These packs are designed just for women!! I haven't seen any other brand do that before. That is so clever of them to add the night soft fabric inside of the pockets to keep my phone and sunglasses from getting scratched. I am bummed I have to wait until next school year to show off my pack but I am going to use it all summer long!!!!

Comparing the redesigned 2015 FlexVent Borealis to the previous model, it's simply less comfortable. The new straps are more padded, but they're relatively narrow and stiff, so the weight isn't distributed as well. It tugs more on your shoulders. They're also lined with a rougher, scratchier fabric; I never had a problem wearing the old straps with a sleeveless or wide-neck shirt, but these ones bother me. The back padding doesn't seem to do much except make the backpack heavier. I kept thinking there was something inside it when it was empty.

The Borealis is still a well-designed pack with great pockets (I love the small external one for something small you use frequently, like phone or wallet), and I like that they fleece-lined the electronics pockets. But I can't get over the reduction in comfort. This is going back and I'll have to shop used for an older model.

        The most comfortable/cutest backpack I've had! There's plenty of room in it and it's good to use for anything such as traveling and school. I've gotten many jackets from the north face and they're still in perfect condition, I know the backpack's going to last. I couldn't be happier with my decision and can't wait to use it everyday! :)

          Comments about TheNorthFace WOMEN'S BOREALIS BACKPACK:

          I absolutely love this backpack! It's going to be extremely comfortable to most women, but I'm not not sure about women with broader shoulders. I really love the design (I got the gray and plum one), and I can tell it's going to last so long. As for the 15 inch laptop, I'm not so sure about that in the women's backpack. If you are a women with broad shoulders or if you have a 15 inch or more laptop, i would just say go with the borealis backpack not targeted to women (so the other borealis backpack). This is my first North Face backpack, and it's better quality than most other backpacks I've owned. Definitely worth the money if you're looking for a long term backpack. Doesn't hurt that it has a lifetime warranty either!

          This backpack was really useful. I could carry so many books and textbooks in my bag and not feel the heavy weight. Though I wish there were features like, more pockets, more room, and better materials.

              I am quite pleased with this backpack. I am going to be using it for college, so I needed something that would be comfortable to wear all day. My MacBook Pro 13" and iPad Air fit perfectly in it. It seems slightly small so I do not know if it will become a problem when I need to carry books around. At least my campus is relatively small so it might not end up being a problem. Otherwise it seems incredibly sturdy and like it will last me all four years.

                Love this backpack! I didn't know that the special straps and padding in the back would have such a huge effect on comfort, but they feel amazing! It's obvious that these backpacks were made with great consideration for comfort and quality. Although I've only used it a couple times now, I can definitely tell that this backpack will last me a very long time!
