what is the difference between the northface surge for men vs women? is one bigger or both of them the same?
MARY PAT S The sizing is the only difference. The women's backpacks are smaller in comparison to the mens backpacks, only by inches in all dimensions. This includes torso, waist and chest. Also the colors are different between the men and women's backpacks. I hope this helps!
WAYNE H The men's is 3 inches taller and about 2 inches wider. All the features are the same.
LAWRENCE V The men's is bigger. Personally, I like the men's size better but the straps for the women version is more comfortable for women
SUZANNE R I believe that the men's is bigger...
JENNIFER G I never saw the men's version in person, but the women's version is fitted for a woman's body so I would guess the men's is a bigger maybe wider fit. I love my backpack, it takes a lot of pressure off my shoulders and can handle a lot books and other little things. I plan on having this for a long time and would absolutely recommend it if you're carrying heavy books and a laptop.
JENNIFER S i forgot to mention, i'm 5'3", 125 lbs... this bag fits me perfectly!
JENNIFER S hi atulita! i don't own the men's version but i do believe the dimensions of the bag are indeed different for men's and women's. i have the women's and it fits me great! i can fit my laptop, tablet, tennis shoes, workout clothes, change of clothes for the office and my bike lock with no problem! i hightly recommend this bag!
JOSEPH V The Men's version has a larger capacity.
Men's: 1953cu in
Women's: 1648cu in
