It wasnt broken, but The North Face still managed to fix it - the latest version of their classic day pack has easier-access pockets, an overhauled suspension system, and still has all the organisational features you need for life on the go.
Load up in comfort thanks to the FlexVent suspension system's custom injection-molded shoulder straps, a padded mesh back panel with spine channel and a wicking lumbar panel, for maximum support and ventilation. Remove the waist belt, then cinch down the side and bungee straps for days when you've got a lighter load.
A perfect bag for an outdoor worker! I use this bag daily it's great for carrying my diary and risk assessment folders in its laptop pouch, and is hard wearing as my other kit consists of a bill hook, axe, hand saw and other small hand tools with room for my lunch. Would defiantly recommend.
Does what it is supposed to do.
great backpack, only berghaus com's a. close second. Buy one.
I've had this since Feb 09. Still going strong, the zips are excellent. Used every day for; work, leisure, cycling, and shopping etc. Good organiser section. Comfortable and probably the perfect size for a day sack, good waterproofing levels in showers but keep zips covered and closed - you will still need a dry bag for severe conditions... maps in cases etc. It's 10/10, dependable kit that lasts without any particular care. Washes fine in a machine in my experience.
This bag is 30L, but you really can you pack lots in without annoying your fellow commuters on buses and trains. It's also great to wear when cycling too with two easy to reach mesh pockets to keep a bottle or flask.
It looks elegant and I've even used this as carry on luggage at airports, and laughed when it so easily fitted in overhead compartments.
Everyday, I can carry a 17" laptop, folders, books, enough stuff for the gym and my lunch to work. It really is like Dr Who's tardis! I bought a Borealis well over a year ago and it fits so good on your back like a glove with the shoulder straps too. You just don't feel the weight you're carrying or look like you are walking on the moon!
The bag is perfect for short business or leisure trips abroad. It's so reliable - It still remains in perfect condition through heavy rain and heatwaves in the UK, Europe, Asia and the US. Best fifty quid I've ever spent on a bag. I recommend it, buy one and you'll never look back again!
Thanks to Outdor kit for their quick postage to me and thanks to North Face!
Daughter has had as a secondary school bag 2 years, still like new. Holds everything needed. Good straps for comfort carrying. Very strong fabric and zips.
