The North Face Surge Backpack is a school backpack that won't shy away from airplane travel to your second favorite state. Or your least favorite state. FlexVent™ suspension provides you with injection-molded straps and a padded mesh back panel with a spine channel to help with ventilation. Right up against the back panel is a laptop-specific section, padded and fleece-y to protect up to a 15" computer, that lies flat for security checkpoints. A sizable main compartment carries books, binders, and lunch, or just a big pile of gym clothes. The front compartment has a padded, fleece pocket for a tablet and internal organization. Three additional external pockets stash away phone, wallet, and all sorts of goodies you must bring along for the ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and well-designed This is a very nice pack, with the right-sized pockets in all the right places and is well-constructed. It's just a little heavy and perhaps a just a little oversized for a commuter day pack. That said I could probably put my computer, associated electronics AND a weekends worth of clothes in there and still get it under the seat of a plane!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Big flaw Moosejaw service perfect backpack very (too?) Large. But water bottle holders terrible from my view. Bottles keep falling out. I've sent it back for either exchange or refund. Thinking positive. My recommendation re moosjaw depends on return or exchangs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much space! I am a college student with a computer, iPad, binders and big text books. Because of all the pockets and storage, this backpack fits all my stuff and keeps it all organized.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, just missing two features I fly long haul 20-30 times a year. This is a good backpack for work/travel, but would be excellent with two additional features: - Sleeve for iPad in laptop compartment. That would allow the bag to lay flat through security without putting the iPad in a security bin. - Divider in main compartment to hold paperwork upright and avoid papers and files getting crunched/creased when putting other objects in the compartment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Around the World I was using this bag for my round the world trips until it was stolen somewhere in Bali. I'm a light packer - tablet, running shoes, anorak and some clothes for half week trips. Airports to jungles, five star hotels to bunk beds, city's to remote villages - it served me with its durability and aesthetic looks - I wasn't feeling judged or followed by anyone while carrying it around with me all the time and everywhere. Sometimes I wished it could be a bit bigger thou then it would not have been that comfortable when hiding under the table in some small romantic restaurant down the streets of Paris or at the local bar in Cambodia. Sometimes it was that the souvenirs wont fit thou with a time I made a rule - if it doesn't fit I don't need it. Will definitely get a new one for my next trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for travel I spent five months traveling around the world with this backpack and it held up wonderfully. It was the perfect size to carry on planes. My 23 pounds of stuff that I was carrying around made it a tight fit, but I never had any major issues. If I were to travel in a similar way again, I wouldn't hesitate to take the same backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I have owned this backpack for 2 1/2 years and I use it 5 days a week. It still looks just a good as it did the day I bought it. No signs of wear and tear. I use it for work and it has plenty of room for everything I need without looking like I am trying to stay overnight somewhere.

Can you confirm if color Asphalt Grey White Heather/Blazing yellow is the same? because on The North Face web site is a little diferent eg. The Brand is Dark in site is yellow

Asked by: Juarez
Hey there, Juarez! I took a look at one of the Asphalt Grey White Heather/Blazing Yellow packs, and I can confirm that the pack we have is exactly the same as the one you saw on The North Face website. The North Face logo does appear in yellow, along with the yellow zippers. We're so glad you asked, so we can get the right photo pictured in that color on this page! We're on've provided a great public service in asking your question. We hope this helps!

1. Put your chin to your chest and feel for the big bone protruding on your neck at the top of your spine. That's the C7 vertebra.

2. Feel your hip bone, the top part of this is your iliac crest. Find the spot on your back that is level with the top of this crest.

3. Have someone measure the distance between these two points, following the contours of your spine.

1. Measure around your body where the hipbelt will rest while you hike. This should be just above your iliac crest.

The size info above is for The North Face technical and backpacking packs. Day packs and work / school packs are offered in One Size, and feature adjustable straps to fit an array of sizes.
