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.

      Comments about TheNorthFace WOMEN'S BOREALIS BACKPACK:

      Great backpack! However I liked how the older version looked, the older one had more options for color and there was one particular color that I liked that the new version does not. I was about to buy the older version of the Borealis backpack, but these backpacks were no longer in the website. Northface you should bring back the older version of the Borealis backpack in your website, so people that want the older backpacks can have more the options... please?

I love the laptop, tablet, and phone pockets (so soft and prevents scratches). Definitely keeping up with this generation of technology. LOVE IT!

                        The color, comfort level, and space were all perfect. I was worried it was going to be too small, but nope! It was the perfect size for me to carry my college textbooks.
                        I absolutely love the back support! It was well worth the money I spent.
