    Does anyone know of any North Face backpacks that will fit the 17'' MBP? I saw the thread about the "Surge" does but I was curious if anyone knew of any other North Face backpacks that fit....

    Thank you.

    The Surge is a great backpack.. I have one and my MBP 17" fits great in the dedicated laptop section with its own zipper, ample padding, and keeps your laptop easily accessible. It also has pockets in the front for various cords, remote, etc. Very comfortable. All around great backpack.

    In a light rain, I would expect that the ballistic nylon would keep moisture out, but I am not sure I would trust it to keep things dry in a heavy downpour or in prolonged exposure to even light rain. The material is not (to my knowledge) waterproofed.

    I got a Recon II by The North Face and it holds a 17" just fine. Take your laptop down to their store and see what you like. My experience with mine has been very good.
