Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE BACKPACK (Exclusive Colors):

I like this back pack; however, it does not compare to my previous North Face Surge from a few years back. This back pack is sturdy and more comfortable but it has less pockets and whenever I set it on the ground, it falls forward. I really miss the bottom pocket. I used to put my Kensington locks and all charging cords in the bottom pocket. Now its goes in the front pocket which adds to the uneven weight distribution.

          Purchased for my high school age son who commutes to school. Invested in a higher end backpack for more back support. It's a bit heavier but great support.

              Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE BACKPACK (Exclusive Colors):

              Have cycled with this backpack on, and am now a freshman in college with the Surge. No matter how much weight I put in here, the support in this backpack makes it the weight feel a lot less than that it is. In my daily routine I have my laptop, books, binders, pencils, pens, calculators, etc in here and It all fits while maintaining a slim profile due to the compression straps. You never know the feeling of a QUALITY backpack until you finally own one. I love wearing the Surge.

                      Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE BACKPACK (Exclusive Colors):

                      This backpack has 3 main compartments. The first one, which is closest to the shoulder straps, and would lay flat closest to your back is the laptop/tablet compartment. I have to say, when I first received the backpack, and tried to fit my Dell M4700 laptop which is a 17" monitor, I didn't think it would fit. I had to really stuff the laptop into the sleeve, and I thought that I might rip the sleeve if I continued to use stuff the laptop in the sleeve. Since the first use, the sleeve seems to have stretched out a bit, and now I'm able to comfortably insert my laptop into the sleeve. There's also room in this compartment for other books, or drawings, or other smaller miscellaneous items like a laptop charger.

                      The second, or middle compartment is pretty basic. There is no sleeve, or anything special. I use the second compartment for bulky items. I have a power strip, my laptop charger, a pair of shoes, and my sunglasses case in it, with room to spare.

                      The third compartment, and furthest compartment from the straps is where you would put pens, pencils, and any other smaller items like a USB flash drive. There is a pocket with a zipper in this compartment that you can put all of your smaller things that you'd worry about losing easily. This compartment is a bit smaller than the other compartments, but I believe that the north face hit the nail on the head with the size of the third compartment. Not too small, not too big.

                      On the front of the backpack is a pocket at the to for putting maybe your wallet, keys, phone, phone charger, etc in. Anything bigger than a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, or an Apple iPhone 6 plus would have a hard time fitting into the top front pocket. There's two other pockets in the front that when you first look, you'd think they're the same pocket, but they're two separate pockets. They come in handy for long cords, or a flashlight, or something you need to get to pretty fast without digging into one of the compartments.

                      Hopefully this helps!
