The North Face Borealis Backpack, Functional & Built To Last

Sporting a new redesign and reiterating The North Face as one of the most reliable outdoor brands around, the North Face Borealis is a 28-litre laptop backpack designed specifically for efficiency, comfort and durability. The design sticks quite closely to The North Face Recon Laptop Backpack, seeking to capture the same level of popularity by focusing on creating a technical, durable and organisational powerhouse of a bag.

With a new FlexVent suspension system as one of its key features, the 16-inch Borealis Laptop Backpack not only offers generous space, but considers all-day comfort as one of the main indicators of quality and performance, alongside ample support and superior protection for your carry.

On the rear compartment, The North Face has included a floating, fleece-lined and padded laptop sleeve that houses up to 16-inch laptops, with a suspension that sits well above the base of the bag so that any sudden drops are immediately absorbed and dissipated without even reaching the device. This compartment also serves as a hydration bladder sleeve that allows drinking access via the tube port at the top, although the bladder and tube are sold separately.

The updated FlexVent suspension system draws most of its strength from a newly designed flexible yoke built from custom injection-molded shoulder straps that create innovative flex zones to alleviate clavicle hot spots, pressure-point strain, and neck pain. Also included is a padded mesh back panel, a lumbar panel for maximum breathability and ventilation throughout the day, and a sternum and hip strap for extra stability and load control. Combined with the use of nylon and polyester for the construction of the bag, you should have no issue with heat and humidity throughout the day.



As with all bags from The North Face, the Borealis comes with accreditation from the American Chiropractic Association, certifying that it has been engineered to carry the heaviest of loads. The North Face design team has considered night-time use as well with 360-degree reflective detailing included across the bag, as well as a bike attachment loop to ensure visibility in the dark, and a whistle on the sternum strap.



Moving to the front compartment of the bag, the Borealis echoes the amount of generous volume The North Face has focused on, with an organisation panel, zip pockets and fleece-lined pockets designed for flexibility and giving you what you need to organise your load however you want. Both big items and anything small or loose is easily placed in direct line of sight and maintains easy accessibility at all times. This is taken even further by two mesh side stash pockets, perfect for water bottles and other medium sized items that need to be grabbed on the go, with access complemented by an adjustable crisscross bungee cord system.

As an outdoor laptop bag designed for supreme comfort and all-day use, the North Face Borealis is a highly dependable, protective and comfortable bag that reflects the brand’s focus on quality and quantity. The generous amount of interior space is organised in a way that offers various options so you can switch up your load out based on your specific needs, whether that’s the daily commute, or a longer and more intensive day out. With The North Face Borealis, you won’t have to worry about not having quick and easy access to your cargo while you’re on the go.
