The North Face Surge II Backpack
This backpack is great. Plenty of places to put stuff and not too heavy.

I'm thrilled with this product. It's so roomy, I can have my laptop and everything else I need for the day and still have available space for whatever: like a change of clothes if I want to head out after work. There are so many storage compartments you can't help but be well organized. I went to my local store and when they didn't have one in stock, they offered to order it for me and had it sent to my home. From purchase to delivery, it was a total of 4 days and that includes the weekend. And it's a North Face, so you know the quality is great and you'll have it forever! I would highly recommend this product-It's a keeper!!

Excellent Day or School Pack
I bought this pack primarily because I am going back to school to become a Paramedic. I have been using one of my military packs (a 5.11 tactical), but having to switch stuff between school, work, and weekend hiking started getting really old. I did a lot of research before buying this pack because I wanted something I could use for school - something big enough to fit my books, notebooks, all those little things I tend to carry, laptop, etc. - but could also use for hiking once I'm done with the class. The biggest thing I found in reviews was that many reviewers said this has "too many compartments." That was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Lots of compartments to keep my stuff organized and separated. This pack is great quality and definitely has all the compartments you can shake a stick at. I love the laptop compartment in the back and the two zippered compartments on the front flap. Also love the bottle holder on the side and sunglasses compartment (which I usually use for my cell phone). Someone really put some thought into this pack.

Northface is very durable
my kids are very hard on backpacks, the Northface is rugged and made to withstand whatever my kids can dish out.

Worked great for traveling.
I used this pack to travel around Ireland for about 9 days. I was able to fit everything I needed in it, and it adhered to the strict carry-on size requirements for American Airlines and Ryanair. I haven't used it for school books yet, but will be soon and hopefully it will fare just as well. I was concerned about rain and the water resistant properties of the pack, and the contents stayed dry throughout my trip.

As per my son, this backpack delivers!
The Northface backpack is used for school. It has adequate pockets to carry water, etc. And, it's way cool and sturdy. We'd buy it again!

rugged and versatile
I bought this for my college son. He uses it for everything from hiking to carrying a load of books. The construction is good and so far no pulling of the seams. It's well padded for a computer as well and sun glasses in the outside pocket are well protected. Definitely would recommend albeit a tad pricey.

Outstanding laptop backpack.
I use this product as my primary laptop bag for college. There is tons of room and the laptop is very secure. It seems to be very well made and my daughter has used hers for over 5 years, so I assume this one will last.

Best College Backpack ever!
Perfectly protects my laptop, yet ample space for all my heavy college books. Very, very, durable...what else would you expect from Northface?!

My son is in high school and uses this to transport everything (so it seems) everyday. The backpack is roomy and comfortable. He likes it quite a bit.
