    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!

      Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE BACKPACK (Exclusive Colors):

      I'm 5'11", 180lbs with somewhat of an athletic build. I use this pack for travel and every day stuff. It fits my 13" MacBook Pro and a 1" 3 ring binder no problem. The computer pouch is separate from the main pouch, so no room is lost for clothes, my camera bag (I'm a photographer & musician), toiletry bag and shoes. With those 2 compartments used up, there is still PLENTY of room for everything else, there are so many well thought out pockets. Including stuff for people with tablets. And finally, a fluffy lined pouch for my shades. Love this one, because I use them a lot and I don't like scratched lenses. Finally, it's comfortable. I like to pull my packs tight to my back, for better support and also so it won't move around much while going from place to place (especially getting on and off airplanes). And since I wear it tight, a lot of packs pinch at the back of the neck or shoulders because not enough width was given in the straps. This one feels so comfortable. I love this pack.

      If you are looking for a backpack which Excels at carrying electronics along with clothes or other somewhat bulky items, and bringing along anything else to make your life more comfortable....then I highly suggest investing in this bag.

                  If there is any complaint it should be because of its weight. There are more pockets that are fleece lined to keep things scratch free.

                      I am starting nursing school in the fall 2015, and need a durable, trustworthy bag to commute my computer back and forth to school. This bag is not only very sleek and attractive to the eye; it is extremely functional and has a secure pocket for my 13" macbook. i feel confident it is secure and safe in this bag. The pockets are just the right size for all of my books and other necessities. Thanks North Face for making yet another quality product.
