Great Bag

April C., Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Summary: I'm currently on here looking for a new bag and will most likely just end up getting this bag again.. after 7yrs+ mine is getting kinda grungy. It's a big bag, you will lose stuff in it if you're not organized! I really, really wish it had better padding/protection along the bottom.
  • Pros: I've had this SAME bag for at least 7yrs! I work in IT and go onsite everyday and have loaded this bag up with everything imagineable. Multiple laptops, tablets, routers, power supplies, tools, various cabling. When I was still in college it came with me everyday loaded up with school gear as wel...
  • Cons: The bottom padding is kinda thin and there's a few gaps like where the back padding and bottom padding meet.. about 5 years ago it slid off my shoulder and landed on it's bottom cracking the corner of my laptop. It fell from a decent height onto hard floor at school though. -- I stuffed a little ...

  • Pros: Best Backpack i have ever bought. I can put both of my laptops and my cooling pad into the big pocket in the back and still have room for all of my text books.
  • Cons: The stretchy cord on near the front caught on a door handle and broke but i just tied it.

My go to bag

Anna S., Newegg
16 October 2013
  • Pros: Very large capacity. I originally purchased this to lug my work laptop around. It ended up being my carry on for all sorts of trips whether i bring my laptop or not. Extremely sturdy and durable. I've had this bag for over 2 years and it's been on numerous camping, out of state and overseas trips...
  • Cons: It's big enough that i occasionally have a hard time finding things in it.

Great for school

Chase M., Newegg
25 July 2013
  • Summary: Bought this for use at college - often carry about 2-3 textbooks plus a fully loaded and heavy 17" gaming computer (Cyberpower PC Fangbook).
  • Pros: This bag works great with any 17" laptop, including Alienware m17x and CyberpowerPC Fangbooks. I use it for school and the vast number of pockets and zippered pouches provide ample space for all my books and supplies. Feels nice on my back, even with textbooks and a heavy laptop weighing it down.
  • Cons: None.

Perfect travel bag

Robert, targus.com
26 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this in 2005 to lug my laptop and other electronics and stuff. I lugged it around the entire country while working in refineries, and I can honestly say i filled this bag to the rim. treated it pretty harshly the entire time.

Huge inside without looking huge on the outside

Brandon B., Newegg
26 December 2012
  • Summary: Overall if your looking for a big backpack for travel, or you want a backpack because you go back and forth to school and your a big tech guy who wants lots of room, this is the backpack for you.
  • Pros: Very large on the inside. I'm holding my 17.3 in MSI GE870 laptop in it as well as an older 15.6 in lenovo laptop (was doing some work on it) I can also hold my very large 17.3 in Asus G73 and my MSI GE70 at the same time (although I dont like to because I like the extra padding for my MSI laptop...
  • Cons: The only con (and the reason i gave this backpack 4 stars) is there was a few pockets in the backpack that i wish were a little bit more versatile. I used to have a much smaller backpack, but the way the pockets were aligned it gave me more room them expected, and they didn't have a similar pocke...

Perfect gadget organizer bag design, not durable

TwistedE, targus.com
2 December 2012
  • Summary: Perfect design for the road warrior with tons of gadgets, but the zipper pulls all fell off within about a year, and the main zipper started failing shortly thereafter. If you're looking for an inexpensive backpack with tons of pockets and organizers for electronics, this can't be beat...
