The North FaceBorealis 25L Backpack - Women's

This one's for the ladies.

More than just a ho-hum unisex pack, The North Face Women's Borealis Backpack comes in a women-specific design, so you can tackle the day in total comfort. If you happen to take it out on a hike, you'll appreciate the FlexVent suspension system, removable hip belt, and sternum strap while you carry a heavy hiking load. But don't think the Borealis is some kind of one trick pony, because with a dedicated laptop compartment, tablet sleeve, and padded sunglasses pocket, it will be your go-to bag for the morning commute into the office and weekends spent exploring the city.

It's amazing, love it!!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've only used this backpack for two of my hiking trips, but it's so light weight and durable. The space for you to use to pack stuff is amazing. I highly recommend this backpack it can really be used for just about anything!

great for college!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this backpack because I needed a good backpack that would carry my laptop, books, and notebooks around my college campus. I commute to my campus so I need to carry all my stuff with me. This is a super comfy supportive backpack that carries everything I need. It's made with a female frame in mind. I am 5'8" and 120 lbs, and it fits me well. I highly recommend this backpack for college students!

Perfect School Pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Whenever I buy a new school back pack I need to make sure it fits my 12in lap top and two hefty textbooks. This is a wonderful combination of both of those things, with room to grow! This pack also has...fleece lined sunglass pocket??? I have never had this before in a backpack and I didn't think I would use it much but I definitely use it pretty much every day!

Love It!

I bought this backpack for my wife. Here is what she had to say about it. This backpack is much roomier than I expected, though the back pocket for lap top is too small for my thick company laptop (I just put my laptop on the main compartment as I have a laptop sleeve to protect it). I’ve used it as my hand carry to Europe and still had room to put my small cross body purse in (Delta only allows one personal bag and a small luggage carry-on). It keeps my fragile souvenirs safe. It’s great to use for backpacking/hiking too. It’s also small enough to put in Six Flags, Disneyland, Universal Studio lockers and when riding different rides. The pockets keep me organized. I normally use this backpack for work (laptop, laptop charger and mouse, umbrella, water bottle, lunch, and heels (to change to once I’m in the office)), making it easy to grab and go as I head out of the house. I especially love the small front pocket that’s surprisingly can stuff so many things in the last minute and/or to easily reach for stuff (i.e. wallet, lipstick/chap stick, meds, keys, cellphone, passport, etc.). It’s also comfortable to carry and I appreciate the adjustable straps, especially since I’m petite.

Great bag

    Love it! Recommend highly

    Great Women's School Backpack

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This backpack is shaped nicely for those studious women. It's very comfortable and the overall design is easy to organize for school.

    One Great Bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    About one of these for my oldest daughter and had to get one for my younger daughter also. They have put these through the ringer, these bags are amazing.

    School pack for daughter

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My tenth grader had patiently used the same pack for five or six years so I was happy to upgrade. She loves this one. It's got way more options for organizing, and as a semi serious daypack it also offered good lessons in not overloading and in weight distribution. This one should see her all the way through high school. Well made with solid straps etc. a damn good book bag!

    I LOVE this backpack!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'd been eyeing the Borealis up for a while and after I spilled chili in my trusty jansport, it was time to upgrade! Wishing I would have done so sooner! I use it to lug my stuff (lunch, nalgene, to-go coffee mug, sunglasses, umbrella, a couple books, uniform, ect.) to and from work, but it could hold plenty more and I plan to use it as a personal item while flying. I've taken it along a couple day hikes as well and the straps are comfy and the back panel is nice and cushy. I chose the black and its super sleek - especially with the hip belt removed for my commute.

    My daughter loved it

    I love this backpack! The only issue I have in the main area being a little small for my liking. Overall it's a wonderful backpack though.

    Great item, customer service, the works!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This item was just as described and as usual, Back Country's customer service was wonderful! Super fast shipping is always a plus!

    Love this book bag!!

      I would definitely recommend this! from its color and size, it is the best, got the two day shipping for free which was helpful. Will definitely order from again.
