The North Face Women's Surge Backpack is a school backpack for the ladies in learning. FlexVent™ suspension has been tailored for a women's specific fit, with injection-molded straps for comfort in the shoulder area. That's not all, the back panel uses padded mesh, a wicking lumbar panel and cuts a channel right down the center for your spine to lay, allowing you to revel in all the ventilation as you trek from home, to school, off to work, and even through the airports. Ah yes, airports, with security these days, the 15" laptop sleeve is not only padded and lined with fleece, it lies flat for speedy checkpoints. With 31 liters of space throughout, your main compartment holds binders and books or clothes and shoes, with a front compartment for all the organization of the little things. Smaller external zip pockets (one stash, two vertical) items for quick access, and you know what that means? Lots of snacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size I ordered a smaller backpack but could not fit my daughter's lunch bag in it. We went up a size and it is perfect. Everything fits, not too big. Love this backpack. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite great I wanted to like this bag, but the bag carries the weight awkwardly, it's not easy to manipulate inside to obtain items, and water bottles fall out of the pockets. More details: If you put even a few small and light things in the front pocket but nothing in the back two compartments, the entire bag is front heavy. The bag can definitely carry a lot of things in it- laptop, books, binders, notebooks- this is the reason I bought it, though I don't always need it to be so full of stuff. However, if you use it to it's potential, the bag is tight and difficult to get things out of the front pockets if you have a lot in the back two compartments. My biggest complaint and the reason I am returning- water bottles or umbrellas fall out of the side pockets. I don't know if my bag was made poorly and is defective, but the elastic band that is supposed to keep bottles tight in the pocket aren't elastic at all- on either side. The bottle just sits there with no restraint. I've had it fall out when bending over or when putting the bag on with the bottle already in the pocket. I've even tried using bigger bottles and they still just fall out. I didn't have this issue at all with my Recon bag. I've only used this bag a handful of times and every time I put it away and go back to my old and worn TNF Recon. Sadly, am returning this because it just didn't work for me.

Do the side pockets fit a L size nalgene?

Asked by: liberated104
Hiya, thanks for the question! A typical 32 oz nalgene will squeeze into the side pocket. A thinner and taller bottle would fit better... but I'm not going to tell you what to do. Hope this helps!

I currently have the unisex recon and have had it since 9th grade.(soon to be college freshman) I am looking at the redesigned recon and the surge. Which one would you recommend considering the compartments/added weight. I don't really have a good posture

Asked by: Gizmo
Thanks for the question! Both packs are a great option and you honestly can't go wrong with either one of them. The Surge is just a tad bigger than the Recon, but surprisingly weighs less. I would say that the Recon is more popular with our college students. The Surge would be more for our traveling customers who need a TSA-friendly back. Both internal compartments are pretty similar - pen holder, cord-keepers, internal zippered pockets, etc. I personally like the Recon best because I don't need the three separate zippered compartments on the Surge. But it all comes down to your preference. In regards to your posture, try not to put the heaviest items in the very bottom of your pack. But them more towards the top. Also, make sure the pack is adjusted to sit higher up, and not slouching down rubbing on your lower back. I hope this helps a little!

If it starts to pour down raining while I'm walking around outside with this bag on, will anything on the inside of the bag get damp/wet?

Asked by: Allie
Hiya Allie, thanks for your question! This pack is water resistant. It could handle light rain but in the case of a downpour, the contents will get wet. If you want a truly waterproof pack, check out the The North Face Homestead Waterproof Pack. You might want to consider a hiking pack like the Osprey Women's Skimmer 22 Pack. It's technically not waterproof but it includes a rain cover. Here are some links for ya: The North Face Homestead Waterproof Pack http://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/shop/product_The-North-Face-Homestead-Waterproof-Pack_10332188_10208_10000001_-1_ Osprey Women's Skimmer 22 Pack http://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/shop/product_Osprey-Women-s-Skimmer-22-Pack_10303549_10208_10000001_-1_ Hope this helps!
