Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack I bought 2 of these backpacks for each of my daughters, and they absolutely love it. Plenty of room and lots of compartments and is also very durable. Great for high school and college students.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is embarrassment waiting to happen! I had recieved this backpack for school purposes, and i was so excited that i had a cool backpack. But when it came time for school some mishaps had occurred due to my bag. So one day i was walking throught the hallway and out of no where the top zipper of my bag comes undone and my whole bag goes collapsing onto the floor for all to see, and i have never been so embarresed. And all people did was laugh and makes jokes, so i suggest that you think before buying the backpack of embarrassment!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for lots of books and preventing back pain We were not in the market for what I consider an "expensive" backpack for a high schooler, but our physical therapist told us our daughter's previous backpack was undoing everything he was doing to help her with back and neck pain. It turns out, the old pack was also affecting her hips because it changed her posture. Her backpack weigh 37 pounds with all of the books. So we decided to invest in a great, albeit expensive from our perspective, backpack. We looked the North Face Women's model that was cheaper (Recon) but the entire front panel was mesh, which you can't tell from the pictures online. We went to the store to check out the differences but then ordered online for more color choices. We decided in favor of the one that cost more (Surge) because it has a durable front material that should last much longer. Our PT doctor gave this backpack an enthusiastic thumbs up, and our daughter says it is much more comfortable. She is able to stand and walk with better posture and is pain free when toting her heavy load of books. The PT doctor says we'll be saving money because we won't be paying for so many visits and that he expects the pack to last beyond college (six years). It seems the investment is long overdue, so everyone is super happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, Ample Compartments/Pockets I bought this bag to carry my textbooks at college. The bag is sturdy, wears comfortably on the shoulders and there is plenty of space on the inside. I am disorganized, but I try not to be - and having lots of compartments and pockets helps with that. Treat it like a backpack, a purse, a gym bag. I feel that I got my moneys worth.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great space, but very uncomfortable I needed a durable backpack for school and the reviews pulled me toward this backpack. It has plenty of space and held all of my notebooks and folders, but this backpack is so heavy even without books in it. My skin on my shoulders get tore up from the uncomfortable straps and heavy weight. I do not recommend this backpack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag for work/travel/adventures I usually have to carry a very heavy laptop to work everyday, and using my regular backpack made my shoulders sore. I switched to Surge on hubby's insistence, and boy did it help! It distributes the weight very well and is extremely comfortable for everyday use. I've used this is a carry-on bag in flights and found it very comfortable. It has tons of pockets and sections to store all kind of small/big items which you can quickly access. The loop/handle at the front of the bag is more handy that you'd think! The only improvement I'd love to see is that the side pockets to carry bottles should have an elastic band or loop to secure the pocket, my bottles keep falling out of it otherwise (and I've lost a handful of bananas stored there too!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backpack for college I absolutely love this backpack for school. I currently commute to school 5 days a week and work right after so I needed a backpack that was spacious and not super bulky. This backpack has 3 big divisions, one where I can neatly put my MacBook 13" in the computer sleeve and it isn't loose. I also have a 2.5" binder as well as notebooks. In the smallest of the divisions, I have my tablet as well as all other electronics cords. There is a zipper pocket on the front that holds my phone and pens with a lot of room and 2 separate pockets in the front. There's so much room I have in this backpack that it was a great investment as I plan to travel and this will be perfect for traveling. The backpack opens all the way for TSA searching which is great. You don't HAVE to open it up all the way either, I haven't had to open it it fully and it won't open all the way unless you do it purposely. This is a great overall backpack and worth the price. I got the black and light blue design and it looks incredibly sleek and doesn't get dirty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backpack! Held all our essentials during our hikes in Patagonia. It was also perfect as a carry-on at airports. A backpack everyone should have!
