Perfect size!

I just got this bag for school. It holds my 17" Laptop, Textbooks, binders, and all the little odds and ends I need for class. It has just the right amount of space. Tons of straps and clips make it somewhat customizable. It distributes the weight of the laptop well. I fully recommend.

highly recommanded

except for the fact that it doesn't have a variety of colors, this backpack is great!! it has enough room for every thing and has a slim look. The material is high quality.If you're considering about getting this backpack, hurry up and do it because you can get this pack faster than most online shops and If you don't like it (which is hard to believe) you can send it back for 100% refund.

I believe this product is from China, but don't let that scare you. TNF has really been trying to pull their act together lately, and are sourcing much better products from Chinese factories. If nothing else, you have a lifetime warranty on this pack.

Whip it out

This bag is great for traveling. So easy to just whip out the laptop when going through security.

Surge Backpack

I just got back from a trip and bought the bag right before I left. I found the bag had ample room for all of my assorted odds and ends, and is a great carry on bag. Everything is quickly accessible. This is clearly the best bag I have ever owned... I've gone though quite a few (JanSport, OGIO, Nike). However, it is a weekend pack at the most... it is not very large. It is a great bag for students.

Plus -
- For anyone who wants a well designed, durable, functional, and overall great backpack... this bag is for you.
- Great storage spots (computer pocket, large compartment, small compartment with mesh storage for small items, and front clip/zip compartment has a lot of organizing pockets and a small storage pouch for a camera/mp3 player)
- Compression Straps!
- Bottom Cord/Battery Charger Compartment

Minus -
- Although back panel is well padded and makes it comfortable to wear... it also gets quite hot during the summer.
- Cost - a bit pricey

Is it worth the money?

Is it worth the money?

Responded on

yes!! I never regretted buying this pack and I've used several other backpacks from dakine and northface but this is my favorite one!! It has a stylish design, lots of room and comfortable. I know it is a little expansive than other backpacks but it is definitely worth it!

Fantastic

This is a great pack. Ample room for textbooks, computer, etc. Protects and hides your laptop well. Also great as a daypack. Truly waterproof. Very functional.

So what's the real difference in the 2007...

So what's the real difference in the 2007 and 2008 Surge Model. I see the handle's changed location and the water bottle holders are slightly different. But's which one is better?

Responded on

North face is known to keep their gear very consistant and accurate. With little differences of the handle and bottle holders etc, there will not be much difference except for colors.

Will this backpack fit legal-sized files...

Will this backpack fit legal-sized files along with a 15" laptop? I've been searching for one tall enough for legal files!

Responded on

This pack fits up to a 17" laptop, and the main compartment has plenty of room for legal files

Great daypack

This was a great backpack. Plenty of compartments for all of my gadgets and I was so glad I bought it. I know it's going to hold up well in the years to come and it was worth the cost. 5 stars!

Dream Daypack

This is the best pack that I've ever owned. It's large enough to fit my 15.4" laptop and I appreciate the dedicated cord pocket. There's also room for two water bottles and my keys, pens, earphones, and other miscellany fit in the front pocket. That leaves room for files, books, a hoodie, merchandise that I pick up while shopping, groceries, and more. I can easily fit a 12 pk of Coke in the main pocket with room to spare. Surge is truly waterproof and will work well as a carry-on, too. I'm in love with Surge!

Travel

This backpack was great for travel. The easiest in and out of travel security checks I have had with a computer. And the design of the pack balances the weight well. In the end, it is just a backpack, but it is a good one.

Excellent All Around Bag!

I would say my one complaint would be the color isn't the exact green as the image... yeah that's about it. It took a little getting used to the straps, just causes they were a big change from my last bag, but this was worth every penny i spent on it... seriously the best bag I've ever owned!

North Face Surge

I travel a lot for work and this pack is great for your laptop, iPod, and all your gear that you need for a business trip. I also use this daily for school and it works great. I have taken this pack on camp outs and hikes here in southern Utah and its great for that also. Lots of pockets for all your stuff. Can't go wrong with this pack.

Excellent Everyday Corporate Commuter Bag

I received this bag over the holidays (from Santa no less) and have have enjoyed the change in my posture ever since. Previously, I had carried a typical over-sized Samsonite shoulder bag and noticed a sharp pain developing over the last year and a half. I was speaking with some coworkers and that said they had to switch to the backpack style after their doctors noticed developing back issues. Out of all the bags I researched, this was the only one that stated it was water resistant. A necessary if you plan on carrying a laptop or papers and don't want to have to worry about rain soaking the bag. The only problem I have noticed is that it is a little difficult to put a laptop in the padded compartment and extra fidgeting may be needed. Other than that, a top bag.

Outstanding pack

Bought this pack to replace an old North Face Yavapai that had run out of room. It's a tremendous improvement, especially since it's actually designed to be used as a laptop/books/miscellaneous stuff carrier. The laptop pocket is probably too narrow for a larger, wide-screen laptop, but my 15" fits just fine. The padded pocket at the bottom for electrical cords is also very useful. So far my biggest problem has been remembering which pocket a particular small item is in, as the Surge gives you plenty of extra pockets to organize all the small items. The main compartment is huge and will accommodate a stack of books, or a change of clothes. Overall, a great pack.

The Laptop Backpack every Geek should own.

Geeks, Students, Packrats, and anyone else looking for the best laptop backpack on the market should look no further. Great Pack! Plenty of pockets for gadgets, books, and of course the Laptop. I especially like the bottom compression straps for strapping a jacket to the bottom of the pack. I didn't even know it had bottom straps when I bought it and remember thinking "This would be the perfect pack if it had bottom straps for my jacket".
Its not quite the perfect pack. The only thing I would change on the design would be Dual zippers (like on the main compartment) for the laptop area so you could put a lock on it if wanted.

I was going to buy this locally but no one had this backpack in black. An online search also found black to be a hard to get color. After about 5 calls the site had black in stock so I give them a star for that.

Great Pack

This pack is excellent. It's fast on the go. It's pockets give you easy access to things. It holds everything together real tight. It gives a really secure feel for any laptop as well.
