This bag was all that I hoped it to be and more. I used to use the Jansport Superbreak but it did not have any back support or any comfort for that matter, with that said it is still a good bag but it just was not cutting it for the amount of things that I have have to carry. The Borealis is really amazing on how comfortable it is to wear even with a lot of heavy things in it. It is definitely worth the buy!

My husband used this for our trip to Tanzania, East Africa and it was ideal. Size and configuration, color, and weight were all appropriate and so helpful. It was our first time ever using backpacks and this one is really a super-star!

I'd also recommend: Don't know, as we have never used a backpack before! Mine was same brand -- purchased before this one and a bit different in shape -- also excellent, tho.

I like the laptop sleeve's ability to hold my large laptop, and that it is easier to put it back in with the backpack full at airport security. I like having the various pockets in the outer compartment, although the purpose of some is mysterious. So far, I haven't found a reason for the two straps that enable you to cinch up the compartments. To me these are two straps too many to have to deal with. Similarly, if you will usually carry the pack over just one shoulder, the chest and waist straps just dangle about. The construction is solid and the zippers work well.

I am giving this pack 5 stars, because I think it is a really nice bag. It is not, however, a great school bag. I ordered it because of it's size (29L), but it really doesn't fit a large, 4" binder, and several thick text books very well. I think this bag is stylish and well made. It is probably good for hiking and other uses. But if you want a good school bag, try the Dakine Campus 33L bag. It fits a large binder and 3 thick text books.

I'd also recommend: Northface, Dakine
