The North Face Women's Borealis Backpack is a laptop backpack for back to school and travel. Since the Borealis has performed so well previously, The North Face decided to give it a boost just for the fun of it, but it totally benefits you. Starting with the upgrade in the suspension, the FlexVent™ gives you custom injection-molded, women's specific shoulder straps and a padded mesh back panel with a center spine channel for some ventilation. There is even a wicking lumbar panel to keep you cool where the bulk of the weight lies. Keep your 15" laptop safe from the bumps while walking down the hall by placing it in the fleece-lined, padded sleeve. The remaining portion of the main compartment provides plenty of space for books and larger odds and ends. The second compartment secures a tablet or e-reader in a fleece-lined sleeve and remaining quick-access items can be stored in the smaller front stash. Stash your rain jacket under the front bungee once the sun comes out and enjoy the walk home from a long day at class.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Backpack I love this backpack! The quality and practicality is outstanding and doesn't compromise with the style. It has a small felt lined front pocket for phones or items of the like. It has a medium pocket with perfect organization slots for papers, writing mediums, calculators, etc. It also has a large felted area for a laptop and another large pocket for books, binders and notebooks. It lastly has two side pockets that are tall enough to hold thermal water bottles without the stress of them falling out. The back and straps are padded and supported to help ease the weight and stress. This is a must have item!

Can this be machine washed? I love the light but am concerned about keeping it clean...

Asked by: amyj156
Hey there! The best way to clean backpacks is to spot clean with a damp cloth, then let it air dry. We do not recommend fully submerging any backpacks in water.

Is it waterproof? I don't want my laptop to get water damage!

Asked by: girlinterrupted
Hey there, Thanks for the awesome question. This backpack is NOT waterproof. It will wick some moisture off of the bag but after it gets too damp it will begin to absorb the water. I would not bank on being caught in the rain with this bag while it contains your laptop. I hope this helps!

What does a 25 L in size mean?

Asked by: Lauren
Hiya Lauren, thanks for your question! Some packs are available in more than one size and are differentiated by the amount of liters the pack will hold. In this case, the pack holds 25 liters. It is the same as "one size" since this pack is currently only available in one size. (There may have been more sizes at one point.) Some of the colors might be older and still labelled under liters. I know this is confusing! Trust me, they are the same size. :)

The North Face Women's Packs

SIZE One Size X-Small / Small Medium / Large
Torso Size (Adjustable) N/A" 13 - 18" 15 - 20"
Torso Size (Fixed) 15 - 18" 14 - 17" 16 - 19"
Hipbelt Size 24 - 35" 24 - 30" 30 - 36"

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.

Women's packs feature a women's-specific design for a better fit and more comfortable carry on smaller female torsos.
