This bag is a great day pack, which is exactly what it is meant for. As a book bag to put your books in plus your computer, it is a bit small. However, I like that because then I can't carry so many books around campus so it doesn't strain my back. I have a 15" MacBook Pro and it barely fits in the pocket because it is too tall, but if you have a 13" this will be perfect for you! There is a cushion on the bottom of the pocket where your computer goes to protect it, which is what makes my computer barely fit. This bag will also be good when I go for day hikes. The front pocket has many different compartments which is nice. And if you're walking around campus and there's always a chance of unexpected rain, you can just shove your rain jacket under the cord on the front pocket! Also, I love the yellow!

I got this bag for school and was super excited to use it. However, when I ordered it, I didn't realize how small the bag actually was. It's totally perfect height-wise, but I didn't realize how skinny it was and that there was a laptop sleeve on the back with something on the bottom of it that prevents you from being able to fit all the things I want in there comfortably. Everything fits, but it's a little tight sometimes. I also don't carry a laptop, so I wish I hadn't kept this bag and had switched it for a larger North Face brand one. But, even though it's not as big as I wish, it's still super durable and very comfortable on my shoulders.

This bag is great! I hate using overnight bags or duffle bags when going on weekend trips or just a one nighter, and this pack is perfect for all my needs. It can handle everything you would need and more, but also has small enough storage for jewelry, watches, etc. Padded back and straps make even heavy loads easier to handle. Feels incredibly durable and well constructed.

Best bag I have ever used. Perfect fit and feel. It doesn't make your back hurt when it's too heavy and it doesn't look huge when its too full. The laptop compartment is well thought out; there's a cushion in the sleeve so you don't end up slamming your laptop on something. Fits everything i need and handles all my textbooks, notebooks, clothes, and laptop all at the same time without any problems! Wouldn't want anything else.

I purchased this for my son. He loves the style. Looks great. I think it's a bit heavy (without books) but the extra padding is good support for his back. He finds it be a very comfortable back pack.

I just got my borealis in the mail and I'm very pleased with the size and padding as well as the many compartments. However, I ordered the yellow and I'm very disappointmented in the color. Its more of an ugly gold than the bright yellow that's advertised in the picture. However, yellow is my favorite color and so I will probably keep it rather than exchange it for another color.
