    Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE BACKPACK:

    Although this backpack have fantastic room, the only con I find about this pack is that, when you wear it with not that much item the backpack strap grinds against your neck making it uncomfortable.

          It's a great backpack and I definitely intend to use it everyday for school and general traveling purposes. This is my first Northface backpack (I own two other jackets and LOVE the quality) and so far I am very pleased with the overall quality, feel and design of the backpack.

              This is by far the best backpack I have ever owned! It is a great size, not too small and not tremendous. The cushioning on the straps is such a pleasure and eleviates pressure from my shoulders and back. The design is perfect for High School.

                    Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE BACKPACK:

                    This bag is much worse than its predecessor, the Surge 2.

                    Initially, I would like to say that the bag is very well-built and seems like it would last a long time. The fleece pockets are nice quality, and the laptop sleeve is soft and protective, which is very important.

                    The bag's largest and crucial flaw is that the shoulder straps are very uncomfortable. At first glance, they seem fine. However, there is stiff mesh "padding" that goes around the strap at the neck area, and it is very abrasive and painful to wear. The whole strap and back of the bag area is stiff, and the straps simply scrap your neck and are not comfortable. I have tried many bags, and this is simply not tolerable. I asked my family members to try the bag as well, and we unanimously decided that the bag isn't comfortable and that the straps are a serious design flaw.

                    I am a college student, and I was sincerely wanting to like the bag. It looks great, and has all of the features that I need. However, it simply is not comfortable.

                    I purchased the bag and kept it for a week. I wanted it to "break in" in hopes that it would be more comfortable with time, but it simply wasn't.

                    I returned the bag to purchase the Surge 2 on a popular bookbag website for nearly $50 less than this bag. The Surge 2 is much nicer for many reason, but mostly because the comfort is far superior to the new bag. As an added bonus (if you have read this far), the older Surge 2 has a place for storing the waist straps, while the new bag has no storage for the straps and the must instead dangle at your hips.

                    Do yourself a favor and purchase the older bag. It's much cheaper, and far more comfortable. You won't regret your decision.
