North Face Borealis Backpack Review
North Face Borealis Outdoor Backpack
- Laptop Storage
- Strong & Durable
- Spine Comfort
Not So Good Points:
- Water Resistant
- Strap Re-Adjustment
This really is a stylish, good quality rucksack that delivers on many levels. Great for the serious hiker and traveller but equally good for every day commuter use.
Lots of lovely ‘bells and whistles’ literally including the built in buckle whistle and a very useful key clip, along with plenty of extra compartments and even more important good strong smooth running zips.
For computer and tablet users there is a fleece lined lap top sleeve (up to 15”), whilst the front panel pocket is lined and brilliant for safely storing you IPad – (other makes are available!) – or other more fragile items. This is however water resistant and not water proof.
As far as comfort is concerned the wonderfully named ‘spine channel’ on the reverse of the pack itself gives good back support and very useful ventilation whilst the injection moulded straps and suspension system make for good ‘all day’ comfort.
Fleece lined pocket for valuables and separate laptop sleeve.
Comfort & Strength
Injection moulded straps and “Spine Channel” for comfort and ventilation.
Good for serious hiking and travel as well as general commuting.
