This backpack is perfect for college students and anyone who needs to carry tons of stuff.

I can fit two hardcover textbooks, four notebooks, a couple of folders, two small library books, my laptop, my tablet AND a sweatshirt/jacket (for when the engineering building decides to simulate winter weather). Even with all of this, there is still enough space on top of all these items to carry more.

The backpack is very sturdy and the laptop-tablet compartment is rigid and foam protected. Perfect for keeping your electronics safe.

The side pocket with a zipper is ideal for storing easy to reach things like my keys or earphones. The other side compartment can hold my 1L Camelbak water bottle and probably can fit a larger one.

The small front pocket keeps my glasses protected and very accessible. Additionally, the two large compartments on the front are intercalated and add even more extra storage space. I can fit a tupperware container with my lunch in it in one pocket and other small knick knacks i might have in the other pocket.

The storage compartment for pens and pencils etc is ideal for carrying all of the usual items as well as my calculator and lab goggles with more space to carry more (I usually stuff my knee brace in there as well).

The backpack aesthetically is a little different from the usual school backpacks. It is taller than the usual and has more of a rounded rectangle/oval shape to it. At first I thought it would look weird but you grow to accept it how it is.

In terms of durability and ease of carry, I've had this backpack for only a month so I can't attest to this yet. However, it did withstand one of those spontaneous summer Pittsburgh rainstorms and successfully kept my tablet and books dry. Like I mentioned, I've filled the backpack with a bunch of heavy books, and while it eventually does cause some strain, it takes longer for it to start hurting than my old backpack (which wasn't a north face).

Overall, this product is a great find. It is a bit pricey but I believe you are going to get your money's worth.

We purchased this for our ninth grade son. He took it to school for two days. On the third day, a zipper pull literally fell off the backpack while it was on the back seat of our car on his way to school. Very disappointing considering the $130 price point.

    Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE II TRANSIT BACKPACK:

    This bag replaced my Borealis bag, which was a great bag but I needed a seperate compartement for my laptop and ipad as opposed to the main compartment. The extra compartments are a great feature, except, I only have one complain, I carry my coffee mug for the morning and a water bottle for later. I would like to have had 2 water bottle pockets on the sides.

    Comments about TheNorthFace SURGE II TRANSIT BACKPACK:

    A very satisfied customer. I received my bag and was doing great for about a week but then notice some issues with the stitching on one of the inside pouches. Stitching on one of the margins began to come undone. Called up customer service and had a replacement bag in 3 days. My bag was shipped from TNF once the return mail tag was scanned at FED EX. They handled the problem quick and easy. The replacement bag has no issues and does not disappoint.

    This backpack is light weight, compact, and durable. The pockets are large in comparison to most other backpacks making it a real bang for your buck. I would recommend this backpack for any student, outdoorsman, or traveller.

    Love this backpack! It's great for school or just in general. Not too big but not small either. Has plenty of space for all of your stuff including 15in laptop with a case. So far I've been very happy with this backpack.
