Details

Super-charged for explorers and road warriors looking for a versatile power management solution to get them through the daily grind, the classic 32-liter Surge II is now hooked up for 2014 with a large capacity Joey™ T55 power supply to recharge your electronic devices. The lightweight Joey™ will equip you with three-and-a-half full battery charges or several days of partial charges to your cell phone, MP3 player, tablet, or other USB devices. The rugged water- and crush-resistant lithium polymer battery was specifically designed to perform during outdoor adventures, so you'll stay powered up and in touch with the rest of your team to coordinate logistics or share action shots. Multiple internal pockets in the front compartment and the 17" laptop pocket all connect to the integrated cable system to provide flexible storage options. The lie-flat laptop pocket allows you to hustle through airport security checkpoints faster since your laptop doesn't need to be completely removed from the pack. For the ultimate in versatility, the Joey™ can also be removed and used as an emergency power supply in other packs.

Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE II CHARGED BACKPACK:

I've had a few North Face backpacks, most of them have been Surge's. The North Face has kept refining a great day pack and I find myself happy to upgrade as newer models are released. The Surge II Charged was no different but seems like it might have forgotten some of those things which made it so successful in the first place. Most recently, I had a Surge (yes - it was a "women's" model but hey, they get the better colors!) and just purchased a new laptop about three weeks ago. I bought a traditional laptop briefcase style bag and IMMEDIATELY knew I wanted to get back to a backpack. Enter Surge II Charged. The packs are well built, with thick material that stands up to my daily grind and happily obliges when it comes time to load up my camper. I miss the front pouch as on earlier models as it offered more organized stowage and a nice mesh net that was great for loose items like tickets, receipts and such. But, the two reach in compartments on the new model do OK for small things like keys too, it's just not as easy to see what you're grabbing since the mouth opening can really only accommodate your (my) average sized hand. I'm also a bit let down that the handle on top of the bag is as thin as it is, earlier models had a wider handle that was way more comfortable and easier to grip. The same is said for the daisy chain on the front of the bag, it seems a shadow of its former self but now it is thin and almost impractical. I'm ok giving up the daisy chain, but then lose the thing on the front of the bag. Maybe a vertical reflective stripe instead? The TSA laptop pouch is a nice addition and the addition of a tablet pouch is pretty clever. I have a mousepad stored there for now though. I LOVE the heavy gauge water resistant closure on the laptop compartment zipper too. I feels really secure and emotes a feeling of quality that makes me happy to tuck my $2200 laptop inside. This bag, unlike earlier iterations unzips to the bottom of the bag and splays open. I don't travel by plane much, but this might be a handy feature down the line. The Joey is my favorite add on. I know others have mentioned the cable routing as odd but I don't mind it much for the added functionality. It does take up some seriously prime real estate inside the bag though. You'd think there might've been a better place to stash the Joey, with a longer cable since the port really is in a convenient place. One big let down for me, is no thumb drive pocket and no pen pockets. I put my thumb drive in the smallest pocket to hold it and it slipped right down. Worse yet however is the lack of a place to put a pen! The old Surge had three spaces! Plus, two "slants" to put something small - like a flash drive. The Charged does have three "rubbery loops" that I can only guess were intended for pen storage, because they're too narrow for anything else. But, unless you clip the pen to the loop it will just fall right through to the bottom of the bag. Most laptop minded bags now factor in a space for such. The new model loses one of it's water bottles/side pockets, not really sure why. Seems to me cutting off one half of anything is a significant change, let alone taking away easy access storage. I also sort of miss the pocket on the very bottom of the bag. This pocket was handy for storing my laptop charger, it wound up and neatly tucked out of the way but was easy to get when the batteries needed a boost. This bag still rates high on my list however. Early surges were utilitarian with the right pairing of tech ability and traditional luggage/backpack. The Charged series is much the same. I hope some brighter colors come around (light blue please!) and the return of some of the great features from the Surges of yesteryear.

I got this backpack for my son who had his last backpack for over 7 years. This one was on his wish list and I was happy to get it for him! He is thrilled with the overall quality, design and plans to have this one for at least 10 years! :)

    Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE II CHARGED BACKPACK:

    Brought this for my husband as a Birthday Gift and he loved the bag. It has good space to keep laptop, tablet, Camera and also enough clothes for a quick overnight trip. The best part is you can charge your gears on the GO which he would always complain about.
    So for him this was the best thing that North Face as created.

    It also has a lot of pockets in the front Case which is also very helpful.
    I would definitely recommend this to my friends.

    Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE II CHARGED BACKPACK:

    I'll be trekking Patagonia and Torres de Paine in a few short weeks. I actually have never had a back pack before. I have been training for the trek wearing the back pack by adding more and more weights. I am blown away by the comfort of this back pack. It fits securely and comfortably. What can I say? Thank you North Face.

    Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE II CHARGED BACKPACK:

    Overall the quality of construction is what you would expect from North Face, good. The pack is light and comfortable and I have been very happy with it.

    Most things seem well laid out, though I wouldn't have minded having something that described what the designer's thought you would be doing with the pockets. Of course I can figure out how I would use them, but some clearly have a specific design in mind that isn't readily apparent.

    My two gripes with this are it will not stand up when you set it down. I have had many backpacks in the past and almost all of them will stand up when you set them on the ground. There is no way this will do that. You hold it or you lay it down.

    The other gripe (and this is really minor) is the Joey battery cord is about 1 cm too short so the charging port hangs askew from the hook it is supposed to be on in the backpack. As I said this is a minor gripe.

    Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE II CHARGED BACKPACK:

    This back pack/laptop case is amazing! I like the fact that I no longer have to remove my laptop from the case as it is TSA approved. I also appreciate the added battery pack in it as at times when I travel abroad, the plugs at the airport don't match any plugs I have so no more dead phones & no more dying iPad while on a 9/10 hours or more flight! Yea! Thank you North Face.

    Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE II CHARGED BACKPACK:

    I'm not a briefcase type of guy...and I need something, especially for travel, that functions as a briefcase...but leaves my hands free in the airport etc. I retired a 16 year old "lap-top" back pack (designed for an era gone by) for my Surge II. It is SO functional....SO North Face...and it has the back-up power...like NASA redundancy built-in!

        Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE II CHARGED BACKPACK:

        I have 4 NorthFace packs. All day packs, and all laptop friendly. This one is by far the best in terms of efficient use of space. The Router and Boxshot are both about 10 liters larger, but the extra space isn't helpful because it's just a longer pack (deeper up and down). You end up packing things on top of one another and not being able to access items at the bottom of the pack. The Surge is the perfect size for traveling. Fits great under airplane seats. And the Surge Charged is the only pack that allows you to leave your laptop in the pack while putting it through airport security, simply by unzipping the laptop compartment all the way to the bottom of the pack and folding it open. I'm surprised NorthFace doesn't offer this feature on all of it's packs. That's the main reason I bought this pack, as I already have my own charging devices and I have no need to run charging cords through special portals in this bag. I am an attorney and I use this pack as my briefcase as well. It came in handy during a two week trial in which I had to go through courthouse security two or three times per day. No need to remove the laptop and iPad. Holds all of your cords, notebooks, sunglasses, pens, etc., in an organized manner. If this pack were offered without the Joey charger and sold for $99 or less it would be nearly perfect.
