Unanswered Question

Is this water proof?


Big Fan of the North Face Surge Backpack

    This pack has been a great addition to my travel gear. It fits my bulky 17in dell laptop in the sleeve as promised and has exceptional expansion ability to reach the 2k+ volume. The large number of compartments and pockets allow for great comfort and flexibility, whether I'm stuffing it full, or carrying only few items. I ordered the Asphalt Grey which I love, although I’m not sure I see the Greenish look others have pointed out.


    Awesome rucksack.

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I got this backpack recently. It looks and feels incredibly durable and sturdy. It has compartments and pockets for everything I would ever need. I will mostly be using it for studying purposes, but I definitely think this pack could endure some heavy time on the backcountry.
    I really recommend this item from TNF.


    Looks green rather than asphalt grey

      Excellent backpack. However, Asphalt Grey may look green depending on light conditions.

      Is this bag covered by The North Face lifetime warranty if I purchase it from your website?

      Yes, we are an official retailer for The North Face and this pack will be covered under their warranty for the lifetime of the product against manufacturing defects.


      will be the ZINC GREY HEATHER / TNF BLACK color combination ever be available on this site?

      Thank you.

      Hey Fema,

      At this time we don't have the Zinc Grey Heather/TNF Black color on order. If we were to get that color in it would likely be a few months from now. However, it is hard to know if we will order that color since we currently don't have any on order.
