Great bag for work and play
I had been looking for a bag that wasn't too big and could be used for work and when I go out on walks or exploring.
The bag has plenty of room for all my work stuff and walking/treking gear. Plus its really comfortable the straps are well padded and don't dig in and it has yet to make my back hurt.
I would recommend this bag to people that need a backpack and doesn't want a big bulky one.

I bought this to use for work and thought it looked professional as well as being well made. However, after a week or two I noticed that the colouring had changed and instead of a smart grey appearance it is now in a two-tone camouflage silver-grey colour as if parts had faded in daylight. I returned it to the shop - the assistant seemed surprised but two other bags on display had similar but less pronounced appearance.
As a fan of North face equipment and clothing I am disappointed in what I consider to be a defect in the colour and the unwillingness of the store to replace the product.

North face Borealis backpack
Bought this to replace an old Lowe Alpine backpack that served me well and now had a hole in the bottom. Spent a while deciding on a replacement and a couple of features convinced me of this backpack
Seperate laptop area
Drinks holder on the side
Separate documents / pens area to keep small items separate
have used it over 3 weeks now and am very happy and its waterproof as well
