    Take the tech outdoors.

    Just because you like to have your computer with you doesn't mean you have to be tied to a desk all day. Take your tech toys around town or out on the trails with The North Face Women's Surge Backpack. It has a dedicated, lie-flat, fleece-lined laptop compartment as a well as a padded, fleece-lined sleeve to store your tablet so your electronics will be safe during transport. A huge main compartment allows for storage of books, binders, and whatever else you need to carry with you in your mobile office. The front pocket has internal organization for simplifying life on the go. Elastic webbing keeps your cords arranged while secured zipper pockets keep small items easy to find.

    So you can be comfortable in your pack, the women-specific shoulder straps are contoured for a women's torso and are flexible so they can fit multiple body types. If your mobile office is headed to a mountain top for a day of work, the FlexVent suspension system will keep your back from getting too sweaty while you hike up. To aid in carrying that load all the way up to the top, a removable waist belt and sternum strap can be fastened to distribute the load. So whether you're riding your bike to the office or checking emails from the top of a trail, you can bring everything you need comfortably and securely with the Surge.

    Great backpack

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

    This pack is the ideal size for carrying a laptop and all the books for school. I love the separate sleeve for the computer and the large exterior water bottle pockets. After going to the store and realizing other bags were really cheaply made. The North Face Surge is HIGH quality and will last forever. I highly recommend this backpack. Also to top it off Back Country had a 20% off Coupon at check out which brought the total to $108 with free two-day shipping. No complaints here! Thanks Back Country!!!!

    Great backpack for commuting to work

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

    I bought this because my current laptop backpack (Arc’teryx Blade 24) is not big enough to hold a laptop, a few files, coffee mug, lunch, and a book to read on my hour long city train ride to work. This bag is good looking and has just the right amount of pockets to be functional, but no overkill. I like that the pockets are big enough for wallet, ID, phone etc but not so deep that you have to rifle around for stuff. Really, really thoughtfully designed. I’m on the CTA in Chicago during rush hour and want as little fussing with my bag as possible. It holds everything and doesn’t look bulky. My only comment has to do with color: I initially bought Komodo green but the actual color is VERY bright, almost neon. It was fun and pretty but ultimately not at all professional-looking (I’m a lawyer). Exchanged it for black.

    Advertised as 31L. Tag says 26L?

      Ordered this for the 31L size. Thought it looked small when it arrived. Tag says 26L. Not sure how this happened, as TNF site also indicates 31L for this bag. Bag returned for full refund.
