The North Face Borealis Backpack is a laptop backpack for dragging your gear to and from school. The Borealis has been a stable force in the school bag line for TNF for quite awhile, so when it came to changes, they worked long and hard in the implementation. First and foremost, the backbone was given a boost with the FlexVent™ suspension, injection-molded shoulder straps, and a padded backpanel with spine channel. It aids in comfort whenever you have to get up and carry a heavy load on your back. The padded and fleece lined laptop compartment (in main section) protects from bumps and there is even the same treatment available for your tablet in the front compartment. A small front zip pocket has also been fleece-lined for your phone, just make sure you put it on silent or it'll be captured down in the front office for awhile. For you classic lovers of this pack, no worries, the bungee cord is still there, strapping down rain jacket or hoodie when not in use.

FEATURES of the The North Face Borealis Backpack

  • The FlexVent™ suspension systemboasts custom injection-molded shoulder straps and a padded mesh back panel with a spine channel for maximum support andventilation
  • Padded, fleece-lined laptop sleeve in main compartment protects laptop from bumps and falls
  • Padded,fleece-lined tablet sleeve located in the front compartment for quick access
  • Front elastic bungee for external storage
  • Mesh side water bottle pockets

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed after 2 weeks I bought this right before I took a trip and used it for 2 and it is already showing fraying, pilling and loose seams. The shoulder straps already have a frayed look and pilling on the mesh. There are also undone seams already which makes me question the integrity of the backpack. I understand what wear and tear is on a backpack but for it to show these signs only 2 weeks after use is absurd. I doubt I will be buying much else from TNF with their quality of products declining. You can barely fit anything in the main compartment if you have a laptop in the bag and items in the front section. Honestly, I am just disappointed in the backpack overall. Otherwise, I love the Night Green Color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backpack I bought this as a present a couple of weeks ago. It was a great purchase. The backpack is very versatile and will get used for years to come! I also loved the color selection and how many pockets it had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, longevity, overall great backpack I have been using this backpack from 4th grade until my senior year of college (16th grade). I have nothing but good things to say about this bag! I also use this as my "adventure backpack". So far, there is not a single rip/tear on the bag, and all of the original zippers, buckles, and straps are still in working order. I have taken this bag mountain biking, snow skiing, traveling in and outside of the US, and it has been used for school 200+ days a year. That is a lot of abuse, and the borealis bag doesn't show it at all! Invest in a quality piece like this, and it'll outlast 10 of the cheap alternatives! I would absolutely recommend this bag, I have gotten a dozen years of use and I plan to get a dozen more. Thanks North Face!

The specs say this bag holds a 13 inch laptop, but some of the reviews say it fits a 15 inch. Which is it? I have a 15.6 inch laptop.

Asked by: fmcclure
Hey there, Thanks for the question. The dimensions of the laptop sleeve for this pack are 12” x 13”, so this would unfortunately not fit a 15" laptop.

Do the side pockets fit a large Nalgene bottle comfortably? I've only found information on last year's model and people have said they don't really fit.

Asked by: Baker
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! My shipping manager has like 5 of TNF Borealis Backpacks and he says that his Nalgenes fit good in the side water bottle pockets. I hope this helps!

- + Size Guide

The North Face Men's Packs

SIZE One Size Small / Medium Large / X-Large
Torso Size (Adjustable) N/A" 15 - 20" 17 - 22"
Torso Size (Fixed) 17 - 20" 16 - 19" 18 - 21"
Hipbelt Size 28 - 40" 28 - 34" 35 - 42"

HOW to MEASURE TORSO SIZE
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.

2. Feel your hip bone, the top part of this is your iliac crest. Find the spot on your back that is level with the top of this crest.

3. Have someone measure the distance between these two points, following the contours of your spine.


HOW to MEASURE HIPBELT SIZE
1. Measure around your body where the hipbelt will rest while you hike. This should be just above your iliac crest.


NOTES
The size info above is for The North Face technical and backpacking packs. Day packs and work / school packs are offered in One Size, and feature adjustable straps to fit an array of sizes.
