Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible redesign. Unfortunately, I have the an older Borealis, which I've had for about 15 years. It's a hiking daypack, with accommodations for a hydration bladder, a thick, useful waist belt that could stow away in the bag, and comfortable shoulder straps. It has been my everything bag -- carry on for flights, commuting on my bike, hiking excursions, carrying camera gear, overnight bag for travel. I still have itand use it on occasion, but it's getting long in the tooth, so I checked out the new Borealis line as a replacement. The new Borealis is now a bookbag. There is no compatibility with hydration systems. The waist band is thin and useless. The shoulder straps are thick, but the padded section is too short and too rigid. All of the outdoor utility is completely gone. I ended up getting the Angstrom 28, which I've been very happy with, as it has all the features of my old Borealis and a few extras.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Borealis: Lots to like, but not perfect There's lots to like about the Borealis backpack, as others have said, so I won't repeat all the positives here. But, there's a few things I don't care for. The stiff back piece is also quite bendy, so if the pack is not full and sitting vertically on your lap (as when riding the city bus), the back bends like a banana, not to mention the bottom edge of the back board digging into my legs. It's the same when standing the pack up on the floor or somewhere, it just bends. Another thing, I don't use the waist straps so I removed them, but then I've got these two stupid-looking buckles (or whatever they're called where the straps attach) still hanging at the corners there. Who uses waist straps anyway? I wish it didn't have them at all, or they could be completely removed. Finally, I find the pack overall is about 1 inch too tall. It wouldn't matter except that stiff back piece tends to bump and hook into the belt I'm wearing on my pants, which is quite annoying, and I don't understand why it needs to be quite so tall. Apart from these complaints, the pack is great In every other way I can think of, durable, stylish, convenient, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome backpack (not for heavy books) This packback is amazing . I have used it for work, traveling and school . It's big enough for a few notebooks and a laptop. It can hold a decent amount of clothes if you are traveling . If you have heavy books I don't reccomend it it won't hold all of them. I've had this backpack for almost two years and so far it hasn't ripped or anything. I have the coral green one and had to wash it by ha d a few times .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for high school/college High school student using bag. Bag held up all school year (Feb now) still looks new, great Northface quality. Good spot to put a computer, albeit it needs to be a smaller computer (Chromebook barely fits). Good support for back and lots of pockets for things like pens or snacks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stiff It's different in person than it was online for me. I don't like how hard the back is and don't need a million buckles because most people who will get this only need one. I wish the flex-vent thing would go away and there was just a more water-tight seal. Overall it does the job and it has big enough pockets for the average college student.
