Stash your gear quickly and hit the road in the redesigned 28-litre Borealis Laptop Backpack that's constructed with a new suspension system for all-day comfort. Quite similar to the very popular Recon Laptop Backpack, the Borealis features a spacious 28 litre volume, exhibits abundant organisation capabilities and ensures durability and protection whilst providing ample support and comfort - making the Borealis Laptop Backpack a technical, durable and organisational powerhouse of a bag.
The main compartment of the Borealis Laptop Backpack features a floating, fleece-lined and padded laptop sleeve that houses up to a 15" laptop and sits well above the base of the bag to protect it from drop impacts, it also serves as a hydration bladder sleeve that allows drinking access via the tube port at the top (bladder and tube not included). The secondary compartment serves to organise all your gear with a organisation panel, zip pockets, fleece lined pockets - whether that is stationery, cables, peripherals or anything small and loose. It also features a fleece lined tablet sleeve. The front zippered compartment is fleece lined to stash small valuables such as a phone or sunglasses. Two mesh side stash pockets can be used for water bottles or other such sized items. A crisscross bungee cord system is available for quick access. Daisy chain webbing is available for attachments or accessories.
The Borealis Laptop Backpack is constructed with a durable 420D Nylon with 210D Cordura® Nylon accents and reinforced with a 1680D Ballistic Nylon at the base. It comes with 360 degree reflective detailing and a bike attachment loop to ensure your visibility at night. For heavy or longer travels, the Borealis supports your carry with North Face's FlexVent™ suspension system comprising of custom injection-moulded shoulder straps, a padded mesh back panel with a spine channel that are ergonomically fitted and a wicking lumbar panel for maximum support and ventilation. The FlexVent™ shoulder straps create innovative flex zones that alleviate clavicle hot spots, pressure-point strain and neck pain. A sternum and hip strap offer added stability and load control and the sternum strap also doubles as a whistle. Compression straps are also available to provide a more compact fit, adding to load control and stability. All North Face bags come with accreditation from the American Chiropractic Association certifying that they've been engineered to carry the heaviest of loads.
“Not as spacious as I expected. Based on the other reviews i was expecting more room. The two main compartments makes it hard to put a large container or lunchbox. It's also a bit heavier than it looks. Very comfortable to wear though.”
“Good For School. Lots of room for textbooks and a 15. 6 inch laptop with compression straps and lots of padding making it easy to carry everything around.”
“Awesome backpack for travel. There's just so much room for stuff. Traveling with this backpack is just awesome.”
“Just what I was looking for. I needed a bag that took a laptop but which was deeper than a laptop's length (for a small music keyboard). Not only does this bag allow this but the laptop is held above the base of the sack in its pouch. Perfect.”
“The Borealis is Forealis. Great all rounder... Compartmentalisation on point.”
“Fantastic. Great quality bag that is exactly as it's described.”
“Perfect. Exactly what I needed for travelling to and from work keeping everything safe. .”
“Great backpack for pretty much any activity . Super comfy and fits everything i need easily. Also it's worth mentioning that your notebook will be very well protected as the sleeve doesn't reach the bottom of the pack so it doesn't hit the floor when dropping the pack.”
“Great quality and size. Fits everything I need. .”
“Great for travelling . It has a look and feel of a good quality bag. I've been taking it to work with laptop in it and it feels better against my back as top compared with my last bag.”
