- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The bag holds way more than it seems! Its my Mary Poppins bag for work! I got it in the real color, and get tons of compliments! The handle on the front comes in handy way more than I expected! The shoulder straps fit great on my shoulders which isn't always true for women's backpacks for me. The side pockets hold my coffee and water bottles great regardless of the size. Overall, a great backpack for my needs!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I may have purchased for the wrong reason. Purchased for commuting purpose, not including a laptop, that space is just unused. The remaining space is just difficult to access. Beautiful color, but too sturdy, no give. It falls over, perhaps by design. The straps are uncomfortable. I can't access my belongings quickly enough.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this for traveling (moving across the country actually) and I needed a new laptop bag that offered some protection, I carried my laptop, tablet, paperwork, and a bunch of misc. items in it and I never worried about my stuff getting beat up. That being said, this backpack does get pretty heavy, I don't know that it would be my first choice if I using it on a daily basis for a laptop/text books...
The color is fantastic! Pictures here are true to actual color. It holds a lot. I love all the pockets and it easily holds a 15" MacBook in a sleeve or soft case AND an iPad in a case. Plus books, textbooks and school supplies. But ... This is the most uncomfortable backpack I have ever worn. I have only had it a week, but I use it daily ... Hoping the straps soften up. I also have a Jester. It doesn't have a laptop sleeve which is why I wanted this bag. But Jester is so comfortable! I put the same exact items in the Jester and the Surge ... Jester wins. Maybe "women's" bags are for shorter women? I'm 5'9 and I just don't like how this bag feels/where it sits or the straps. It's disappointing. I love The North Face! Just not this bag. Not worth the $
What is the capacity of this bag ?
