Comments about The North Face Borealis Backpack:

We purchased this pack for my 12yr old son. It 'fits' him very well and is comfortable. I upgraded to this pack since it had the laptop protection, but once he puts his 3" binder in there, the laptop won't fit. The lunch bag won't fit inside either, it's clipped to the top strap.

        Comments about The North Face Borealis Backpack:

        I use the pack for weekend travel and as an airplane carry-on. Bought this to replace my old Columbia pack that I'd had for over 10 years. This pack is smaller than I expected. Had trouble fitting in the typical weekend stuff - Kindle, a few clothes, make up case and a paperback that I was used to carrying in my old pack. Doesn't seem to have the expandability width-wise. This pack could also use a few more outside pockets - again - this is what I was accustomed to. Will have to wait and see if it lasts over the years.
