Pros

Cons

  • My disappointments would be these: the RF-shielded cell phone pocket is very small (no way my EVO - or an iPhone - would even come close to fitting in there - it does fit in the cell phone pocket attached to the shoulder strap, although it's very tight), and that there isn't any waist or chest straps.Deu30v19

    New Updated Pack

    I just received this yesterday, so obviously this review will be limited. After reading reviews on several sites, there were a few questions I still had about the backpack, which are the items I will be focusing on... I received the brand new updated pack - even the Mobile Edge site isn't updated with it yet. It is exactly like the new M18x backpack they are advertising - It now has two pouch pockets in the first section, instead of the ten or so cd slots. It also has designated USB and memory stick slots. Plus it now has a zipper pocket in the back area, opposite where you store your laptop. And I believe it now has thicker straps, with a rounded area around your neck (I'm not sure because none of the pictures I could find of the M17x bag really show the straps). It also has a small zipper section on the side where the attached mesh water bottle holder can store away when not in use. I wavered between getting the M18x bag and this one because a couple of reviewers said their laptop was a snug fit in the M17x bag. I have a M17x laptop and there is plenty of room for it to easily fit in this bag. My disappointments would be these: the RF-shielded cell phone pocket is very small (no way my EVO - or an iPhone - would even come close to fitting in there - it does fit in the cell phone pocket attached to the shoulder strap, although it's very tight), and that there isn't any waist or chest straps. I am a woman, about 5'4", so the shoulder straps are pretty wide on me. I know that most people that own a M17x will be men, so I don't fault them for catering to their size. It would be nice to have the straps to distribute the weight and keep the shoulder straps from falling down (I'm a backpacker, and I've owned a heavy 17" workstation laptop for years, so I'm not a stranger to hauling weight on my back - it just makes it a lot more comfortable to distribute the weight). The big bonus is that the pack fits tight against your back - some packs have a tendency to want to pull away from you - and it has nice padding. Overall, the pack seems to be very good quality and has plenty of room for accessories.

    Really well made and easy to carry

    Overall, this has been a great investment for my 17.3" Toshiba laptop. However my only concern is that I do use it when traveling overseas frequently to visit friends and relatives, and with no method of securing the zippers (particularly to the center section where the laptop is stowed), it's easy when on a crowded subway or bus and you're standing, for someone else to easily access the interior of the bag without being noticed (as I found out on the Underground in London a couple of weeks ago, although they didn't manage to steal anything thanks to an alert commuter on the train). This led to me wearing the bag frontside when traveling in crowded areas. All in all though, a great investment minus the ability to secure access from the zippers.

    Holds it all. Well constructed bag to haul the goods. Only downside of the bag is the size. It is a large bag.

    I use this back pack everyday. It's held up for at least four years now. I love it.

    So far, so good

    I've had this backpack for a few weeks. Immediately after purchasing it, I read a lot of reviews about the fact that this pack wears out very quickly, particularly in regards to the zippers, so I've been keeping an eye out for that. So far the pack is in good shape. I carry my 17.3" work laptop in it, my 11.6" ultrabook for class, and my iPad, plus a small textbook and a few doodads, and everything fits really nicely. I am in no way pushing the limits of capacity in terms of size because just with those three electronics, a few pens and my ultrabook charger, the pack weighs upwards of 15 lbs (the pack weighs 2.3 lbs by itself). My purse would easily fit inside, but I prefer to distribute the total weight I lug around by carrying it separately. I like the fact that the pack is solid black--other brands seemed a little more college-y in appearance and I wanted something that looked a little more professional (insofar as a backpack could do that). I'm a pretty small woman (5'2) and I was able to adjust the straps to wear comfortably on both shoulders, although I admit I normally wear it with one shoulder strap, and the weight centered on my back. I'm only going from the car to my desk and back--if I had to travel with it, I would definitely wear it on both shoulders. One review mentioned being conked on the head by the top handle when wearing it on both shoulders, and I admit I experienced a bit of that when I had to lean forward. I don't do that very much so it isn't an issue for me, but be aware of the possibility.

    I have a 17.3 inch ASUS ROG and it fits snugly. The rest of the bag is pretty spacious, but I do wish it had small pockets on the sides.

    Bought this for my husband as a gift and he was over the moon to receive it! There are so many pockets and compartments to hold absolutely everything you could think to need! It's a little pricey for a backpack, but the protection it offers is worth it. Even the cashier in the store was impressed with it when I was picking it up!
