Product Expert backpacks

The North Face Borealis is a backpack with a volume of 28 liters. It has enough room for your lunch box and a small stack of school books. The emphasis with this model is on carrying comfort. The shoulder straps are made of a combination of rubber and foam. This reduces the pressure on your shoulders. The back offers support for your back and breathes, thanks to ventilation systems and breathing fabric. The main compartment has room for a 15-inch laptop. The second compartment consists of several compartments for your accessories. Also very useful are the reflective attachment for lighting and the compression straps.

Note: the size of your laptop, like 15-inch or 17.3-inch, is the screen size, not your whole laptop. If your laptop has wide bezels around the screen, it's better to choose a laptop compartment that's a size bigger. That way you'll know for sure that your laptop fits.
