    The best pack for bigger laptop's

    Took my time to find the right pack for my laptop, Swiss Gear fit the bill! Someone actually took the time to think this design out when dealing with today's larger laptop's. All the pockets are in the right place and they make sense in regards to pen and pencil placement. Notebooks and paper also have the right sizing to fit snuggly. And the most import part is the quality and workmanship---Top Quality zippers, reinforced stitching and material. This pack will last a very long time without any worries!

    I love this backpack. It is the most sturdy one I have found and it works well for my 17.3" laptop. It has a pocket for all cords with dividers just above the laptop section. The laptop section has a velcro closure to secure the laptop in the padded area and has more storage in that pocket. There is a web pocket on each side which are perfect for an umbrella and your water bottle. The padding on the shoulders is excellent. I put over 40 pounds in my bag and I can wear it comfortably while I walk on campus and climb 4 flights of stairs.

    Great. Lots of pockets and storage space. There is a space for a laptop and an iPad. There’s also space for pens and accessories. The straps are nicely padded. Plus there are multiple handles and one is extra sturdy. I really like this backpack. I carry my laptop, iPad, a couple textbooks, student work, my chargers, my adapters, pens/pencils, cell phone, etc. only problem is it gets heavy. But that’s not the backpacks fault.

    I bought this after the zipper blew out of my previous computer bag on the way to the airport. It is plenty big enough for my 17" laptop plus everything I need to work. The pockets are well laid out to provide a place for everything. The only downside is that the straps are not serious enough for when you have the backpack full of paper. Too much weight and the simple strap design becomes uncomfortable. It could use more padding as well as a chest strap to pull the main straps together.

    After getting a new 17" widescreen laptop for work, decided I would rather have a backpack type of bag. Went through various stores looking for a bag that has ample storage space as well as fits a laptop this big. This bag was the best option I could find. I don't feel I compromised on anything. Tons of pockets, even some with special material for more expensive items to prevent scratches. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for this type of solution.

    Holds Everything I have

    I travel all over the world for work purposes and needed a bag that could keep up with extreme environments, being slung around airport terminals, overstuffing, and just really hard usage. This bag does that. The straps don't dig into my shoulders, making it very comfortable. It has so many compartments that unloading electronic devices while going through customs is a breeze. Only thing I don't care for is that the material shows dirt really well so I look "dirty" sometimes, but a quick wipe with a Clorox wipe takes care of that.

    Great backpack. Easily accommodates all 15" and smaller laptops. Some 17" might also fit in this bag but that's when you're starting to meet it's limitation - there are probably fewer of these sized computers these days but something to be aware of if you've got one of these over sized laptops I would recommend checking the dimensions. This is a highly durable and quality product from my experience and I recommend this bag especially of the road warriors out there. Many pockets to store just about anything!

    Good for a Student

    As a college student, I have quite a bit to carry around. The various pockets work very well for carrying around school supplies. It's also the perfect height for a 17" laptop. The padded straps and back make this backpack comfortable to carry around. I've only had it a month, but so far it has held up great. Besides the high price, the only downside I can find is that the mesh pockets are too small to carry around anything bigger than a small water bottle, so is not ideal for a travel mug of coffee or a medium or large water bottle.

    Ideal bag for a smaller dimension laptop

    Overall, I like the look and features of this laptop bag. Only negative aspect is that my HP HDX 18 laptop BARELY fits into it, and can not secure the velcro strap to hold it in place. I was told it would fit, but when I got it home, I can barely get the zippers closed over the corners of my laptop. I literally had to shake the bag with laptop inside pocket to get it seated far enough in to close the zippers. I'm concerned the zipper will separate at the corners of the laptop. I would recommend the product, but only for a smaller laptop.

    The hack pack is nicely built with strong fabric and stitching. The multiple pocks allow for a great amount of organization and the bottom is built to not fall over, which is a very nice feature. The only problem is if you want to carry many books, the middle ares for that will only allow 2 - 3 nice sizes textbooks. If you need more then 3 the compartment is not large enough.

    This is my first SwissGear product. Overall, I like this backpack. It has plenty of pockets for organizing, and, they are large enough to hold whatever I usually carry. While shopping, I tried to find a bag that had side pockets, and this one has them, however, they are rather small for much of anything. My old pack had much bigger side pockets that were useable. In spite of the small side pockets, that is not a big enough issue to downgrade the pack from 5 stars...that's how good the rest of the pack is.

    This was perfect work bag for me. I sometimes need to carry two laptops and various charging and power cords for all my devices. This bag comes with multiple compartments to carry everything I need when travelling or just commuting back and forth to work. Perfect for vacation travel, too. Plenty of room, too, to carry paper documents, books, etc. Very sturdy, easy to carry, and padding on back makes it very comfortable.

    I needed something to commute my laptop to/from work and to take with me on business trips (airport). Saw a lot of my business cohorts were using the same namebrand. Bought the smaller version the first go round, it would hold my laptop.... but just barely. Had this bag for ~1mo now. So far, so good. No fraying of stiching. First time I've ever seen that in a backpack. Usually there is always fraying even at the time of purchase. I guess you get what you pay for. I would suggest buying this backpack to family and friends.

    I purchased this backpack because I was traveling and needed something sturdy with enough pockets to hold my laptop and a few items readily available. It met my needs. The only thing I wish is that there was more variety in colors, as it is very common. I found several others had theirs as carry ons on the plane. But I can live with it. I had used a bright luggage tag and my teen daughter had added her own twist to personalize it for me. Otherwise, sturdy and versatile.

    Replacing my previous Swiss bag, this one is slimmer, and seems to have more storage options. It fits my 17.5" laptop which is thicker than most being a gaming laptop, I had to shoe horn it for a little while. The straps are durable, and easily adjustable. Holds a larger protein shaker, and all of my accessories that I use for work, or emergency PC repair calls. Only con is that it will not stand up straight, I thought the firm bottom would make it easier, but I thought wrong. : /

    EXCELLENT PURCHASE

    I was surprised when receiving the backpack because its appeareance, it looks very nice and modern. Storage space is very good, with compartments everywhere, even now I've just discovered another. The materials seems to be long lasting (still not having so much time to prove it) and looks good quality. The only note abput it is the wheight. Maybe because of the size and lots of compartments, but i feel it a bit heavy. Very important: my laptop is hte Gateway NV7802, 17.3 inches, and fits exactly. I'm glad to have this backpack.

    Replacement Carry Bag

    I bought this as a replacement bag...looks like it will be durable but time will tell. I really like the backpack but would prefer a bag that was more like a brief case but I could not find one that had metal handles and fasteners. I like the multiple compartments for extras! Zippers are working well! The extra handle, in the middle, is nylon not metal (main handle is metal) so I'm careful of which handle I grab...could be a problem when I'm in a hurry. I am very pleased with this product so far...even at the expense.

    Great backpack

    This backpack is great for carrying my 17" Dell Precision laptop. I have always had to use a large roller back as I had a hard time finding a back large enough for my computer. This is my first backpack for carrying my computer and I like it. My only complaint is the lack of small pockets for smaller items typically carried in a computer bag. There are plenty of large pockets, that can easily carry all of the smaller items it is just that they are all in one pocket and sometimes a pain to get only one or two smaller items.

    My husband has this backpack thru his work, so I was familiar with this brand and this model prior to purchase. My main concern was size: I had to transport two laptops for business (17" and 15", plus accessories). This backpack was comfortable on my back and provided ample space and protective padding for both laptops to accomplish my travel. The zippers are well constructed and operate smoothly, and there are enough small compartments to accommodate other items such as phone and wallet.

    I purchased this item for a trip to India. It has plenty of room for clothing, food items, electronics, personal hygiene supplies and water without having to worry about anything spilling into anything else. It also fits very nicely under the seat of an airplane for easy access to what is needed during flight without having to get up and wrestle with the overhead bins. I purchase Swiss Army items because I expect them to be tough and durable. I was not disappointed with this one. It is also very cool looking.
