Couldnt buy a better bag.
11 November 2013
Summary: I carry a lot of stuff around with me for my laptop and had to have a big bag. This bag has all the room I need and then some. The stitching is great and it has help up to carrying an average of 40LBS. When this one dies on me I will be looking for the same one.
Summary: I have a 17,3 inches laptop which fit in the laptop area. I Can put up to 3 full binders (1 inch each) in the main division, and one more on the secondary division (the one with the laptop). The only thing missing is a little more space on the little divisions on the front, they are smaller than they appear.
Summary: I just purchased this for my son to carry his 17.3 inch laptop computer to class & books. He is going to a college where EVERYONE rides bikes because the campus is spread out. It's in CA, so no snow, but rain. I decided on this one because of the room, price & durability. IT IS HUGE inside!!! The laptop fits NO PROBLEM, with LOTS of extra room for books, spiral folders, & whatever else. It is made of a heavy nylon material (not canvas), but looks to be water resistant.
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: Used this backpack to not only hold my laptop but alot of other things. Stood up well. Have bought this bag twice at different companies. Looking to buy again. Cons: Wished it opened up for airport security and a little more padding around the laptop and on the bottom.
Summary: I bought this to carry around my Asus G74SX. Anyone who onwns one of these laptops knows how hard it is to find a bag that fit's this laptop for under 100 bucks. This bag does, and does well. The laptop feels snug in the pocket and the zippers close without issue. It also feels really comfortable on the back with the addition of the waist strap. I'd reccomend this bag to anyone who needs space for a HUGE laptop and anything else they need to carry.
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 bought this backpack for my VAIO 18.4 It fits perfectly and there is still enough space for extra stuff. This huge backpack is excellent if you are looking to accommodate a large laptop without breaking your bank.
Summary: I used this to lug not only my current HP laptop but my old dinosaur (6 yrs old) Gateway latptop to my boyfriends & both laptops & accessories made it through the flights without any problem. Took the weight of all of that fantastic. Glad I bought this bag.
