Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money, if you can't use it in the rain. I bought this 2 months ago for another year in college, hoping for a backpack that would last me longer than 2 years. Seriously, don't waste your money on this. It is literally not water repellent at all. It started raining on campus, and when I got home, I found out that my notebooks, folders, and a book had water droplets on them. Seriously? It's supposed to be for a lifetime of adventures, but I would not trust it for any adventure. Before this, I always bought cheap $20 backpacks from Wal-mart that would last a year or two before a strap would start tearing....but I NEVER had ANY water on ANY of my notebooks, books, etc. from any cheap backpack. Don't trust this North Face Surge backpack, especially if you have electronics. Don't waste your money on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good I like that this backpack has so many pockets but the farthest/biggest pocket is so flat you can't put binders in it and the backpack has a lot of padding on the back but since that pocket is so flat it doesn't feel like anything. Hoping that it will break in and feel more comfortable... FYI I just got this backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Backpack I have Ever Owned!! I got this backpack for college. I am a Veterinary student, so I have a lot of books. This backpack feels great on my back and shoulders. I also have chronic shoulder dislocation. This backpack does not bother my shoulders at all. The shoulder straps are great. They're designed to fit a women's curves and conforms to curves very well. Also, the padding on the back of the backpack is great. It's soft but also firm. It is very breathable on your back. There is a lot of room in the backpack, including a fleece lined laptop sleeve. I plan on using this backpack for as long as I can, and if I do need to repurchase a backpack, I'll definitely be buying this one again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far excellent Book bag is highly durable and waterproof. Pockets are fairly spacious, and stretch out for textbooks, binders, etc. lots of smaller pockets to keep miscellaneous items in. pockets are coated with a soft, furry cloth, which keeps drinks and food cold/warm. The padding in the back of the bag provides comfort. the book bag is sturdy, however, It does not stand up on its own, so it will have to stand up against something. Extra padding in straps allows the weight of the bag to not affect you. Overall, very happy with my purchase. Also has a very cute design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Roomy Backpack My youngest daughter had this same backpack last year. She used it the entire year and it still looks new. She wants to continue using it this year. When my oldest daughter needed a new backpack, my youngest recommended this one to her. She loves the roominess it provides and loves the additional handle on the front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs up! Bought this in the black and hot pink for school and it's multiple compartments and padded straps are great. I am very happy with my purchase but I do think that the $120 price tag is a little overinflated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from womens surge II backpack northface so I have to start out saying that the staff in store were fabulous. I was asking 100 questions and they all attempted to help me. I was trying on every back pack, size and color in the store before making my purchase. before leaving the store, I thought this would be the perfect backpack for traveling Europe. I was very happy, until I got home (kept the tags on), filled it with some clothes for trial and put the pack on. it was VERY uncomfortable with the straps. I thought it was just because it was the womens version. the next day I returned it and got the unisex version. SAME PROBLEM. the straps fit around my neck funny. I thought it was my body (5'2' and 110 lbs), so I had my dad try it on. he had the same problem. the straps were rubbing against his neck. so I had to return it. the size, quality, etc. were GREAT until trying it on. so sad. but the store was great. thank you for your time.
