    Great rugged backpack

    Carried a similar Swiss gear backpack for years and had to replace it. I work a tech job that requires a lot of interface cables to various pieces of equipment. This bag will easily hold all of them separated in different compartments and still allows room for tech manuals, small notebooks and my 15" GD6000 laptop that has a folding carry handle. There is also a hard pocket for glasses or other things and the front compartment has quite a few dividers for pens, business cards or other things and a key holder hook. I loved the last bag I had, this size Swiss Gear was perfect for my application going forward. Oh yeah, it's comfortable to wear as well. I usually only sling it over one shoulder for convenience and the padding on the strap and the back is more than adequate for this.

    As a frequent business traveler and keen gym goer I love this bag. It has plenty of space for all of my business travel needs, holds the entire contents of my briefcase and has room for two 15" laptops. Lots of smaller internal pockets make finding your phone, sunglasses, passport etc a breeze and they are all very well protected. The straps are quite comfortable even when heavily loaded and the ends of the straps don't get anoying flapping around like other backpacks I have had. It does lack a waist strap which motorcyclists will miss as it stops the wind lifting the bag behind you but adjustment of the shoulder straps can overcome this isue quite well. This is certainly not a cheap bag but it is definitely good value if you intend to use it allot

    Perfect for 17" Laptop

    I had a much earlier version made by Swiss Gear that went on multiple trips to Europe, Africa, Hawaii, and the Middle East holding at times both a 15" and a 17" laptop along with accessories and files; but, my recent trip to Australia and New Zealand did it in. I don't think 1,000,000+ miles is too shabby. During this same time I've gone through 4 roller carry-on bags, so my history with this brand of backpack was a great one. I'm just hoping to be able to give my new backpack the same million miles of abuse as I can see that this new version actually has been improved where my old bag gave in. If you need a roomy well built backpack this one is worth your hard earned $$.

    good quality

    I bought this bag because it seemed like a good quality bag to fit my new sony vaio 17 inch laptop, after i bought the bag and drove home and was excited to test it out i went to put my sony in it and the sony was a 1/2 inch too big and the bag would zip shut however it would scratch the laptop really bad. This review doesnt reflect anything bad against the bag just if your buying this for a 17 inch sony... dont waste ur time go with a different bag.

    My husband purchased this for me to use on a trip. My laptop fits perfectly and made it convenient to carry boarding passes, charger cables and all the essential travel items. Very comfortable to carry and easily stored beneath the seat in front of me. I now use it every day, taking it to work. It carries everything I need along with important things like my lunch and snacks. Perfect size and extremely useful with all the pockets.

    Solid bag but not roomy for 17" laptop

    I've purchased this brand before and have not been disappointed. This bag certainly met my expectations for quality and, being a packrat of sorts, I like having plenty of compartments. My only complaint is that it advertises it will hold a laptop up to 17.2". Mine is 17" and it just BARELY fits. The zipper has to be tugged over the corners of the laptop to close it completely. I am hoping it loosens up a bit so that fit is a bit better. If the bag took a header and landed top down, there would be absolutely no padding to cushion the laptop from the impact.

    This is t he second one of these I've owned. It's a sturdy well made backpack. They did make a few changes in this one that I didn't like. One is the strap that secures your laptop is now held in place with Velcro. The first one I bought years ago had a locking clip. The clip is much better, easier to connect and disconnect. Velcro wears out, it sticks where you don't want it to and isn't as secure as the clip. They also eliminated one pocket in the interior. Still, it's a good bag and I would recommend it.

    It holds my 17 inch laptop easily. Very sturdy construction, you can tell this is not a cheaply constructed bag. I feel relief that it will protect my new 17" laptop. It has plenty of room for other things like your power supply, mouse, headphones. Comes with a tote strap that's very handy. Also 2 pockets on the sides of the backpack for smaller items like pen drives, cell phone, and other things (ear buds). Those pockets make it easy to access. There's really no cons I can think of for this backpack.

    Compared this to all other backpacks at the store location before purchasing. Between number of compartments and comfort, this one won out. A bit heavier empty than others but is also more comfortable after adding a laptop (15" mbp), couple notebooks, and a few heavy-ish-for-a-backpack items (toolkits, hard drives, drink). Definately not made to double as an light over-night bag and a little large compared to the room it provides, but overall a good purchase.

    Too Expensive

    Really regretting paying what I did for this backpack. Swissgear makes quality stuff for sure, but I wish I could have gotten a cheaper model on sale. This one also doesn’t have a lot of space as it’s kind of narrow. And it’s supposed to stand straight up, but more often than not it falls forward. Wish I could exchange but it’s too late now.

    Really Great Laptop Backback

    Good quality backpack. Every pocket is padded and the laptop part is very secure. Straps are comfortable and there's plenty of pockets for mice headphones and everything stays protected. Straps had a string pop shortly after using but I've had this backpak about a year now and the straps haven't had any issues so I'm assuming it was a decorative string.

    My computer fits perfectly in the bag. I can store my pins and their is a small pocket for paperclips and binder clips that makes it easy to get to. There is also a zipper pocket for paperwork so I don't have to store them in the same pocket as the computer.

    This is a solid purchase. I purchased specifically for travel use when flying. I wanted something that could double as a carry on and laptop bag. Great for my laptop but once I loaded it up I was slightly disappointed with the limited main carrying section space. However, overall this bag is a good buy. I would have given 5 stars but the space issue dropped it to 4.

    I bought this bag to carry my monster 17" work laptop. The laptop fits great in the bag along with all my other electronics I take with me on trips. The bag more than carries the weight and I don't notice it like the normal shoulder laptop bags. After comparing the looks, feel, and storage space to other bags in the store I knew this bag was the right choice.

    This is, by far, the best backpack that I've ever had. The straps are super manageable. Able to tighten and loosen quickly for removal and transportation... very important for a former soldier. The padding is great and makes the backpack, as a whole, very comfortable and it feels like part of your back, instead of hanging off it.

    Purchased along with a laptop computer as a high school graduation present for my nephew. He chose it after checking all of them out. He feels it is the best fit to carry his new laptop and other paraphernalia as he starts his college career. He likes the pack packs features and appearance. It seems well put-together and sturdy.

    Before purchasing this backpack, I had an average over-the-shoulder gym bag, and I used it as a everyday carry bag, kind of a bug-out bag. I use this new Swiss Army backpack the same way but more organized. I literally keep enough stuff in here to survive for several days. I also bought it on sale, so I got a good deal.

    I use this pack to carry my computer and papers back and forth to school. It holds a lot and can get very heavy. It is heavy when it's empty. It is durable and well built. It has many compartments. My only complaint is the weight, but that probably can't be helped considering all the features it has and the high quality material.

    I wanted to ditch the shoulder bag but wanted the same storage in a backpack. My shoulder bag was also a Swiss, so they both have the similar pockets and space I need. It's a little different but next week I travel so I'll really be able to tell. No more worry about clocking people as I walk down the aisle on the plane lol.
