The North Face Borealis Backpack Review:
Although the North Face Borealis Backpack is seen to be a backpack for day hiking, or a day pack, it has the capabilities of being used to carry your laptop. There is a special compartment to fit a 15 inch laptop which is padded for safety.
The 29l capacity makes it a little bigger than the normal 25l day pack, but the difference in minimal and you don’t really notice the extra space available.
There are plenty of compartments for your hiking/school stuff and don’t be put off if you think being a backpack that can be used for either activity is compromising on that purpose…it’s not, the North Face Borealis Backpack can be used for a number of activities…who said there had to be a dedicated backpack anyway?
The comfort is excellent and the weight distribution in even making the backpack a pleasure to wear.
Wearing the North Face Borealis Backpack whether to school. work or out hiking, the quality and style shines through and it’s a very strong and robust backpack that can take all knocks and scuffs in it’s stride.
the only negative is the price. You can buy similar backpacks for half the price of this North Face backpacks and they will do the same job, but what makes this backpack a little more pricey is the quality of workmanship and style the North Face Borealis Backpack brings to the able.
