    I really like this bag, I wore the last one out, it lasted about 6 years of daily use. The laptop compartment is well padded and large enough for my 17 inch laptop, plenty of room and compartments for books and other items. The only drawback is the shoulder strap adjustments loosen when I put it on, but they stay where I adjust them to after I get it on.

    Swiss Gear has always preformed well. I bought this back pack to replace my Swiss Gear shoulder bag, which still in great condition considering it is 7 years old. The Swiss Gear back pack construction and durability holds up to the demands of my job. Extra stitching in areas of stress around shoulder straps and handles. Heavy duty zippers. Plenty of cargo space to hold my 17' mobile workstation, cables, tablet and peripherals.

    This is a nice one to have. Lots of places to put and store things. The strap buckles on the shoulder straps don't always hold their position and will let all the way out to the knot preventing it from coming all the way out and you lose your laptop. Beware of that. Especially when carrying on one shoulder strap. The safest is to use both straps and it works well.

    I purchased this after being told by an electronics associate that my ASUS G74SX would fit inside, but to my dismay when I got it home, I found the contrary to be true. It fit width-wise but not lengthwise. I did however give the bag a nice looking at. It seemed of solid construction and with my laptop inside, being as heavy as it is, was still very comfortable. There was also plenty of room for the charger ( a real brick on this model computer), my turtle beach gaming headphones, wireless mouse, air card, external speaker etc etc. with room to spare. Instead I wound up with a crummy Targus bag with a painful shoulder strap and no room for my paraphernalia. That is the reason I knocked off a star.

    I used to use laptop cases to carry my PC to work and travel. The shoulder straps were very uncomfortable. The zippers always broken. There just wasn't enough space for all my stuff. This backpack is the best. Plenty of space. Sturdy. Easy and comfortable to wear / carry. A GREAT purchase.

    IBEST Laptop Backpack

    This is possibly the strongest backpack you will ever encounter without buying leather or metal/carbon casing. The weave is tight, taut and very durable. It is mostly water resistant, but will stain if it encounters bleach or other sorts of dye materials. The zippers are heavy duty and wont break off like most others. Pleasing appearnce and comfortable weight, even when full to the max. Some Specs: >> Color: Blue / Gray / Black >> H x W x D: 19" x 15" x 10" >> Fits most 17" widescreens (As in my Dell Vostro 17" w/ 9 cell battery pack which sticks out the back of the laptop, bumping it out more) >> Reinforced ergonomic carrying handle >> Rear hanging handle doubles as trolley strap >> Side zippered and mesh pockets >> Extra durable material on bottom >> Quik Pocket holds iPod/MP3 player for easy access to all of your gadgets >> CaseBase Stabilizing Platform keeps your IBEX standing upright to keep your valuables in place >> Air-Flow Back padding keeps your back cool even with a full pack >> Comp-u-Flex computer pocket keeps your 17" widescreen snugly protected >> Three main compartments provide space for all of your belongings >> Shock Absorb Shoulder straps distribute weight evenly and keep you comfortable >> Essentials Organizer in front pocket has pockets and slot for all of your accessories and gadgets This pack holds many of the usual patrons of your pockets such as pens, iPods, calculators, phones, notepads, etc. Relatively larger mesh sidepockets than you would get from an average backpack. Tends to fit 16oz up to 24oz and SOBE sized bottles fairly tight and secure. It actually stands on its own. Can fit pretty much anything you have in mind when you want to go somewhere. Great travel size, but not to be confused with luggage. Generally, when backpacks are empty, they looks almost like deflated helium balloons, slightly flat, very light, and just filled with air in the empty spaces. This backpack, whether it's because of its frame construction or what, I don't know, but it tends to looks like something is in it all the time. It also doesn't have a chest strap to go across the shoulders to connect shoulder strap to shoulder strap. With that, you can expect alot of bouncing when riding a bike while wearing this. Not terrible or anything, just something I thought they could have easily added for extra comfort and stability during bike transport. When all is said and done, this is probably the best 17" capable laptop backpack you will find. Needless to say it's well worth the money. Pay the little extra and get this rather than the Targus ones, those materials aren't grade A like this. If you are still unconvinced, you can probably travel to any of your local Best Buy stores and feel them/see them in the laptop case aisle. They are generally one of the few actually on display in stores and is probably one of the only Wenger - Swiss Gear items you will find on sale.
