Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect, even two years later I bought this backpack two years ago and i am still in love with it. Nothing on the backpack has broken in those two years and i have never once had the urge to replace it. This is the perfect backpack for a college student that also enjoys weekend hikes. I regurlarly load this backpack between 30-50 ibs worth of textbooks and what not and it still feels comfortable on my back. the built in laptop sleeve is also amazing. My only complaint is that sometimes my shoulder hurts while wearing it, but i think that is due to the fact that the straps are not exactly matching in length. Overall, it's a great pack i would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No doubt my favorite college purchase!!! I use my product as a bookbag for college! It is undoubtedly the best bookbag I have had, I didn't know what I was missing all of my high school years. Not only is the bag very comfortable to wear around the campus, but it is lightweight, can withstand all of my banging around while keep all of my contents safe, and water resistant which is a huge benefit for me!! Normally, I would complain about a bookbag not having enough pockets, but this one does. It has a sleeve for my computer, a large pocket for my books, a smaller packet for other small packages, and pockets for my pencils and pens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Redesign I just recently received this backpack. It has exceeded my expectations! I've had the old design of the Borealis and I have like that for a long time. I recently had gotten this backpack and I absolutely love it. I love the new design of the bungee storage system and I absolutely love how north face has extended the water bottle pockets. This backpack is great for work because of the padded back it is very comfortable to wear around. I also love how Northface has added new colors and an extra zippered pocket for your laptop. This backpack carries many things and it is just a great backpack for anything that you might need it for. I would totally recommend this for other people to purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality I got this backpack because it looks very stylish, but I feel like the sleeves are very uncomfortable because they have a hard material in them instead of having a foamy feel to them. I love when bags have many pockets, but this one only has 2 large ones. 1 for the laptop, the other I use for my books, and they have a medium sized one which I use for my writing utensils. Lastly they have a tiny one where I store my keys. I feel like for the price it could be more comfortable, and they could've added secret pockets. The medium pocket is in the upper half of the backpack so it makes the backpack look fat in the upper half which I believe looks unpleasant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for School and Hiking I used this backpack everyday for all 4 years of high school, not to mention as a hiking pack in the Andes mountains, and as a general day pack in Rwanda. It worked perfectly as both a school bag that could hold a laptop and everything else I needed(most of the time) and a hiking pack that I could stuff all my layers into. I am currently shopping for a new bag for college, as this one is reaching the end of its life, and I found myself coming back here as other brands don't offer bags that can easily shift uses. This is the holy grail of backpacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BACKPACK! LOVE THE NEW DESIGN This backpack has definitely gone above and beyond my expectations. This pack is great for work, school or anything you would need a backpack for. This backpack is very sturdy and has a great design. I absolutely love the extended water bottle pockets and the new exterior design of the backpack. I also really appreciate the fact that North Face has added an extra sleeve just for the laptop. This backpack has great padding which means you can wear it around all day. I also love the fact that the front compartment has organization. Additionally, the backpack comes in many colors. The material it is made out of is amazing! This backpack is great for everyone. I definitely recommend this North Face Borealis backpack!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh... What I love about it: it's big and holds a LOT. I can stuff 2 textbooks, jackets, all my school stuff, water bottle, laptop, etc. It's kind of a black hole where I can just about put anything. The organization is also great. I used this as a overnight camp counselor and it was great for stuffing the random stuff I needed for hikes, etc. What I don't love: it's HEAVY and kind of clunky- maybe because I'm 5'4, but this backpack just doesn't sit well. It feels too long and sticks up too high and too low- I'm not a fan of how it looks on me. And somehow the weight gets weirdly distributed so I end up feeling stooped.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not durable, would not recommend, will not buy again I bought this backpack in October (2018) and use it daily, to carry whatever I need that day. I am not doing anything special just walking to about 10 minutes in the morning and at the end of the day. However, the side pockets, for water bottles, is already breaking and these are huge holes. Soon I won't be able to carry my water bottles. Additionally, it's pretty tall for a women's backpack. I'm average height, 5"3' and it's so tall with the laptop pocket that I find it digging into the back of my neck. I am really disappointed that I paid so much for a backpack and can't even make it to year. Please don't waste your money.

1. Put your chin to your chest and feel for the big bone protruding on your neck at the top of your spine. That's the C7 vertebra.
