Melissa Love the backpack! It is a smidge small for my 17" laptop, but it does fit in there along with plenty of books and binders.
Anonymous I have had the bag for a week now and it's great. The width of the straps is good for a woman and sits great on your back. It holds a lot. The laptop part goes about 1/2 to 3/4 up and is kind of thin on the padding, but does the trick. I have a 15 3/4" laptop and fits great. The color, ink blue looked kind of like a navy to me on the website, but is more of a faded blue/gray/teal in person. The backpack is comfortable and great. I'm very happy with it and the website. The shipping was pretty fast.
Anonymous Bought this for my 14-yr old daughter. It has an attractive appearance and is quite roomy. Easily accommodates all of her many books, supplies, sweater, etc. She really loves it - and that means a lot since she is very "picky" about her school gear! She did mention that the number of straps could be less - however overall the bag has high functionality and is an excellent value.
nancy kahn I had my last Northface backpack for over 4 years. I carried it to school everyday, filled with heavy text books. I looked at lots of other brands but Northface has the best features, durability and I love the style. I am really pleased with my new Northface. I just wish the laptop pocket was a little more cushioned.
JJ I bought this backpack for school and it's been perfect. The inside laptop pocket holds my 15-inch laptop securely and there is plenty of space for my books as well. The straps are padded and comfortable, and I like the style. Great all around backpack, perfect for anything from schoolbooks to camping gear!
Anonymous I love this pack. It works great as a school bag for high school and college students - it has pockets for a laptop, pens, etc. while still having space for a few books and a water bottle. Plus the cords on front can hold shoes or clothes. Its pretty durable too. Water resistant and easy to carry. Good buy!
Les K Great daypack with lots of pockets for storing odds and ends including digital camera gear. Even the slot for toting a laptop is much better than I expected. Highly recommend this style as it folds very flat for use as a daypack that can be stored in your larger pack without consuming much space
Anonymous The borealis bookbag was great. Everything came in perfect condition. Bookbag was nice and spacious and I really enjoyed the laptop compartment as well as the accessories compartments. What I like most is the bookbag is water resistant to a good amount so my books won't get damaged.
Anonymous i love the classy professional basket weave and the coloring. the individual pockets and the laptop pocket are really useful! i am nervous it will get dirty and not be great for rain but i love it so much that i will find a way to make it work!
