    Amazing Backpack!

    Posted
    Eden

    Picked this up recently to fit my new 17" Gateway FX, even with the slightly extended battery it still fit perfectly into the holder inside the bag. There's room for absolutely everything you can think of, I walk to work and carry two laptops (The 17" Gateway, and the 7" Asus EEE) along with all my accessories, power cords, mouse, headset, and even fit a change of clothes in the bag without it being uncomfortable. In my opinion the price was well worth it, it's a very sturdy bag with great features, I'm still finding pockets and zippers I didn't know about a month after buying it!

    I brought my laptop in the store because I wasn't sure how they measure the size of the travel bag to the laptop. An associate of the store helped me pick this one out and I loved it on my trip. It had room for EVERYTHING I had wanted to bring with me. My Dell laptop, my new Apple iPad, my PS Vita, my MO drive and the cords for everyone of those items, with room left over!!! It even had a small pocket for my sd card case for easy reach. Just worth it alone.

    Perfect for High School

    My mom got the bag for me as a Freshman and I'm still using now as a Senior about to graduate. The plastic on the handle cracked and is now in three pieces and there is some tearing on the straps. What do you expect from a well used back pack that's been thrown around though? Hot chocolate was spilled on it once but never seeped through to the inside. It has also been muddy several times from being placed on the floor of vehicles. There are enough pockets to organize my stuff and hide things. I am very proud of this product and my college backpack will be Swiss as well.

    Comfortable and easy to use

    LOVE, Love this backpack. After paying the airline $100.00, because my rolling computer bag had to be 'checked' I decided a Swiss backpack was the answer. Boy was I correct! The shock absorbing straps are very comfortable and the entire bag is well made. My only issue, is the snugness of the inner computer sleeve, when using my 17" Gateway, which has an extended battery pack. My Toshiba fits great in the sleeve. Organized well, good access to needed accessories. Great design and VERY comfortable, on one shoulder, grabbing by the handle, or as a regular backpack. Highly recommend!

    So if you need to carry a 17.3 in laptop around and you have no place to place it....well here is the best option for you. It stated that it would only hold a 17in laptop. We tested at the store and was able to fit our HP 17.3 laptop into it. We nicknamed it the TARDIS backpack...cause just like the TARDIS....it is bigger on the inside. You have so much room to place all the items you need to keep with you. The padding is great to keep everything safe and still be comfortable wearing it on your back. It is also very durable. If there is any backpack to own it would be this one. I have bought two so far.

    I purchased this bag to carry my laptop for vacation and a recent relocation and discovered it is much more than just a laptop backpack. This bag easily held my laptop and power cable along with many other items. Plenty of pockets and storage spaces. Zippers are smooth and durable. Straps and handles are strong and comfortable. This is the first laptop backpack I have ever purchased and will likely be the only one I need for many years to come. Well worth the cost for protection and convenience.

    I got this as an impulse buy to protect my new gaming laptop, but I couldn't be happier with that decision. It has compartments to snugly fit my laptop, wireless keyboard, wireless mouse, power cable, and podcasting equipment. The back pack design is incredibly handy, and should I need to store a few books with my computer (for students out there), there is additional room to do so. The laptop I bought is one of the bulkiest models out there these days (Alienware), so unless you have an unreasonably big laptop, space concerns should not be an issue here.

    I would recommend this to anyone. Especially the traveler. I took it on my recent plane flight across the country. It was comfortable and fit my 17 inch laptop, 3 tablets, my cell phone ,papsrwork, 4 sets of earphones and more. This thing has pockets galore and little compartments everywhere. It fit my whole families tech gear of 6 with room to spare. Definitely worth the money. Stylish and we'll made. Comes with adjustable straps and nicely padded straps and padded back support.

    Best Backpack Ever

    This product maybe a laptop backpack, but in reality, it is the all-purpose best backpack ever. I am a very active guy. I do take it to the university class one day in a week, but rest of the week it goes with me to the gym, hiking, jogging, vacation along with regular items inside it. I can fit two sets of clothing, a pair of size 13 shoes and other necessary things for a weekend quick getaway. Without any argument, it is the best backpack with various designated sections to organize.

    Perfect for 17" laptop w/ space for books & files

    The Swiss Gear 17" laptop backpack is a great way to carry your computer, accessories, and necessary school or business materials. The padding & suspension for the computer compartment is more than sufficient to protect your computer from most short drops, knocks & jostling. There are numerous zippered compartments for cables & accessories, supplies, and plenty of room for books and files. It can be carried by hand straps or as a backpack. Although it is a little pricey at $100, the construction is solid and appears more durable than other comparable brands at the same or lower price.

    This is actually my second Ibex, the first one having been retired after many years of hard use. This one is even better than its predecessor. Light enough for everyday use, but voluminous enough for a weekend trip. Straps are very comfortable and secure. Almost flawless - the only change I would ask for is to put a strap across the back to use to slip over the extending handle of a carry-on suitcase. Then it would be perfect. 5 stars already nonetheless.

    I need something that would hold a lot of stuff. I am easily able to carry two laptops and power cords in this bag, plus folders, snacks etc. On a recent trip I needed fly and to bring two computers and a CPAP machine and related gear. It all fit, along with some other odds and ends too. Carries comfortably. Seems durable. I like the cable re-inforced carry handle. I am a big guy but the shoulder straps are long enough to fit around my shoulders. This would be a good bag for someone who travels alot by plane.

    Being in my 50's, it has been a long time since I've purchased a backpack for myself. This unit is has exceeded all expectations. It looks great, holds my laptop, iPad, business cards and tons more. It is the great quality Swiss Gear is known for providing and when it's on my back seat, it isn't blatantly obvious that it's a computer case. The top handle is reinforced with a steel cable. So whether you single strap it, double strap it or hold it by the top handle, it is extremely secure. I Highly recommend this one.

    Swiss Army Knife of packs!!

    I needed a backpack to carry all my equipment and work. I have a 15" laptop and a DSLR with a couple of large lens' i carry. In addition, I have paperwork I need to bring along with work utensils and all my collateral electronic gadgetry and cables. This pack has room for it all. Better yet it has separate compartments for everything plus room for a change of clothes. I stepped on the plastic strap fastener and broke it. So i tied the strap and now it is a permanent length, but works as good as new!! I have owned this pack for 3 years and bring it everywhere!

    This is a nice backpack with. Holes for tech products such as an MP3 player headphones. It has lots of pockets and zippers and a lot of space in side with three large storage areas and two medium storage areas. Aldoa storage area for sunglasses and built in carabinier. Expandable side pockets can hold a Thermos on either side and padding makes for great comfort on your back. Also the straps are well padded and have pockets built into them as well for stuff such as a cellphone! Well made and great craftsmanship!

    This is my second purchase on this backpack in about 3 years. Only thing I noticed on the newer version is that the strap inside the main laptop storage area is too short to ingage. The old version had an elastic version that worked fine this newer one is not elastic and is about a 1/4 inch too short for my 17" Dell Precision to firmly lock in. Otherwise the backpack is identical to the older one. Only bought a new one to give my old one to my daughter going off to college. This thing is built to last!

    I wanted a well-made sturdy backpack with lots of space, This fits the bill perfectly. It is light, sturdy with multiple good sized pockets and excellent storage space. I rejected a similar backpack by the same company because the backpack itself weighed twice as much. It's both my every day and my travel backpack. Well made and hopefully will last for at least several years of heavy use. It's currently carrying two laptops, a large paper notebook and lots of supporting accessories. It's perfect for my needs.

    Our organization purchased 4 of these backpacks as scholarship awards for recent high school graduates who will attending college and are enrolled in a STEM curriculum. The criteria for our purchase was that the backpack must be durable and provide a high level of protection for the laptops that were also given to our scholarship recipients. This backpack is not only durable and lightweight, it is the only backpack that provides padding in the bottom, which provides additional protection if the backpack is dropped.

    Lots and lots of pockets. I travel 1-2 weeks each month and this was a great upgrade over my previous SwissGear backpack. Love the travel strap they added to help secure it to your luggage handle and the quick access pocket at the top is perfect. Straps/padding are very comfortable. May not be the best 'student' backpack but for the travelers who has to lug around a 17 inch laptop, cords, tablet, books and binder....this was perfect for my needs. Might be ideal for you. Go to the Best Buy store to demo it for yourself if its in stock.

    After years of carrying a briefcase-style laptop bag, I upgraded to a 17" laptop that would no longer fit in my previous bag. I tried replacing the bag with a larger model that would hold the bigger laptop, but after a trip to China, I realized I needed more space than that bag would provided. Poked around and found this bag, highly rated, and also the same brand used by a colleague in China. After several more trip, I have to say I'm very happy with the bag, handles all of my stuff, including extra clothes for a short trip.
