Comments about North Face The North Face Borealis Daypack:

I am going to become a freshman in college, and I needed a backpack that could hold my new Macbook Pro. I already read some of the reviews from other sites and how controversially some laptops can't be stored in the bag. I'd like to say that mine fits (MacPro 15"). Along with that, all of my supplies: water bottle, notebooks, folders, pens/pencil, agenda book, and text. I'm also 5'3" and though the backpack can be bulky, it is not at all overwhelming, and is comfortable. Anyone who is going to college can invest in a backpack like this.

Comments about North Face The North Face Borealis Daypack:

Bought this backpack for my laptop and general daily use, maybe some school too. I was going back and forth between this and the Recon. I chose this one because it didn't seem as bulky.

I just received mine yesterday, and loaded up my laptop and all my accessories, at first I thought it was small, but unstrapped the sides and wow! This thing can carry a lot! I could probably fill a couple good sized programming books and still have room!

Comments about North Face The North Face Borealis Daypack:

Wife wanted a travel/laptop backpack, but didn't want one quite as big as my Heckler. The Borealis was a perfect match, slightly smaller without compromising fit of 15.6" laptop, comfortable, nicely padded with easy access to water bottle pockets. She loved the color too!

Comments about North Face The North Face Borealis Daypack:

The North Face Borealis backpack is a great backpack for school or light daypacking. I chose the Borealis because it's laptop compatible. The backpack fit my 15.4 inch laptop as well as one of my 3 inch (in width) text books and a couple of smaller textbooks and folders. It is a bit heavy with the laptop, but that's only natural.

There were a sufficient amount of pockets and little sleeves to organize my cellphone, wallet, mp3 player, etc. The tightening straps prove useful when I need to skate to my car, keeping the bag tight and close to my body. The chest strap is pretty useful as well, allowing you to adjust the straps vertically depending on where you're comfortable.

There is also a waist strap that serves as another band to keep the backpack close to you. I don't use this strap because I usually only walk from class to class. The specifications of the backpack indicate that you can tuck in the waist straps when not in use. I have yet to find where you can tuck these straps in.

Overall, it's a great backpack.

Comments about North Face The North Face Borealis Daypack:

I really like North Face products. They have and awesome quality and a great variety of products. I'm currently using this backpack for school. I really love the design of this backpack. The color choices are great as well. The only thing that isn't so great about this backpack is the size. There isn't a whole lot of room to place things like a lot of school books inside of it. Lucky for me, I have back problems and don't carry textbooks back and forth, so this is absolutely perfect for me.

Comments about North Face The North Face Borealis Daypack:

love the purchase, especially for the price. this is my first northface backpack, and i am in love with it. Doesn't look like it can hold much, but there is more than enough room. i wish there was a zippered pocket or something inside the electronics pocket, but other than that, it's all cushioned there and it's all good. great for college and nice pocket for laptops.
