Excellent bag... For a while...
22 February 2013
Summary: I received this bag this Crhistmas (2012) as a gift from my girlfriend to replace my messenger bag that just didnt have the room to carry everything I need on a daily basis. This bag is absolutely huge on the inside. It holds my Laptop, Tablet, all of my necessary files, and even my lunch when I have to brown bag it occasionally. The padding to protect your devices inside is great.
Pros: very roomy. , padding to protect devices. , padded shoulder straps.
Cons: broke after less than 2 months. , warranty replacement is inconvenient.
Excerpt: Comfortable bag with lots of compartments and the raincoat feature is quite handy. Only gripe is that the shoulder pads start tearing off slowly after a while (7 months in my case) so it's not suited for anything other than your laptop + essential accessories as it can't handle a heavy load.
Summary: I've had my bag for close to 5 years now and it's still going strong. I do love the capability to carry so much in it. I really abuse it sometimes with 3 laptops, chargers, a couple of portfolios, and many cables and connectors. I originally bought it for the capacity for a European 10 day trip where I was taking laptop and 3 cameras as well as change of clothes in a carry on bag.
Summary: This backpack has been great for over a semester, the zippers and straps hold up well and it is good for my laptop, and could accommodate one much larger. However do not expect it to be waterproof (most backpacks aren't). Additionally the zipper pocket right about the "Targus" embroidering suffers a design flaw. In the picture it looks fine but if you put anything in that pocket, it sags down because the 2 retention straps and affixed below where the weight hangs.
Pros: big , safe laptop compartment , comfortable (especially with waist strap) , rigid carrying strap on top , excellent zipper quality and ease
Cons: not waterproof (not surprising) , flawed pocket design above "targus" , nylon in back can wear clothing
Summary: I was looking for a backpack for school and when I travel. Something to fit my 17" laptop, a change of clothes, and maybe some small items. When I got it, I start to look for the wheels. This backpack the size of small carry-on luggage. This thing is HUGE, and kind of heavy. It is so much larger than your standard backpack. If your looking for storage this is definitely for you. I think I will find something smaller.
Summary: I had this bag gifted to me on my birthday. I had not known Targus brand before, as I was in the USA for a very short time then. Now about the bag, it looks cool and has good quality materials and zippers. What's special about it is not it's ability to carry huge loads (>20 lbs), but the absolute ease with which you can do it. It's got a good cushioning on it's backside that lets you carry what ever you want to comfortably.
Summary: I have had this bag for over 5 years. It is very comfortable to wear all day even with a full load in it. It has lots of little compartments to hold little things and three large compartments for the big stuff. I can get a few days worth of cloths, my macbook pro 17inch and assorted cables and notebooks in this bag. I would definitely buy another one of these if I wear it out.
Summary: I bought this as a birthday gift for my nephew who is going away to college soon. When I received this I was surprised by how roomy it is. My nephew thought that it was great and was actually excited to have it when he goes away to college.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
