Nail your work/life balance with the Borealis Backpack. It transitions from forest trails to commuter trains with ease. Its 28 litre capacity is roomy enough for extra hiking layers and a packed lunch or gym essentials, books and binders. There’s a separate protected laptop compartment, organisation panel, zip pockets, two external water bottle pockets – one with quick-draw smartphone access that you can reach without removing the bag – and an external fleece-lined pocket, which is a scratch-free zone for your sunglasses. Seeing as you can pack quite a bit in the Borealis, you’d expect a good carrying system. And it delivers on this, too. The FlexVent™ suspension system is made up of flexible moulded shoulder straps, a comfortable padded mesh back section and a breathable lumbar panel. And if you prefer to commute by bike, you can do so safely thanks to the strategically-placed reflectors offering 360° visibility and by attaching a light to the bike-light loop.
