Your bookbag doesn't really need 100 different features on it to get you through your day so simplify your life, starting with The North Face Borealis Laptop Backpack. This versatile North Face pack is sleek and simple with just the necessary features and none of the fluff -- saving space in your closet since it's an everyday load hauler AND a weekend warrior. Made from durable nylon and polyester material, the Borealis will easily last through your senior year of high school AND hold up to knocking around campus as you get your higher learning on. The FlexVent injection-molded shoulder straps have dual-density foams for extra cushy comfort, and the Airmesh backpanel manages sweat and protects your spine when you're shouldering a full load of books. One 29-liter main compartment offers a laptop sleeve for a 15-incher, plenty of room for school or work stuff midweek, and capacity for trail or beach gear on the weekends. For the features, The North Face gave the Borealis Laptop Backpack side mesh pockets, a front organizer pocket for little items, elastic cording on the front for on-the-go extra capacity, an attachment point for a bike light, and a stowable hipbelt. Like we said, just the necessary stuff.

One of the most proven crossover daypacks on the market, The North Face Borealis Backpack suits your needs whether you're heading to class or on an overnight adventure. The North Face built this thing with ballistics nylon that takes the beatings you'll dish out in your everyday, or not-so-everyday adventures. The large main compartment easily carries your whole mess of textbooks or enough beer to turn a night of sitting on the beach watching the northern lights into a real party. A comfortably padded air-mesh back panel and FlexVent injection-molded shoulder straps keep you feeling good even if you're carrying quite the load. It's nice to get away from technology for a while, but a variable-sized laptop sleeve keeps it safe when you do need it.
