    This is the 2nd one of these backpacks we have bought! My husband owns one and now my college son has one also. It is an excellent backpack. Very well made and holds so much more than you would think. Another nice thing about it is the thumb pulls on the straps that make it super easy to adjust the straps once you have it on. We highly recommend this backpack and will be buying a 3rd one for our next son when he heads to college next fall.

    I have been using Swiss Gear bags and gadgets for years. I love this product. I don't carry purses so I pile what I need in my lab top Swiss Gear bag and boy does it hold up. People often ask how the heck I carry my heavy bag. I tell them if it wasn't for the padding in the shoulders and back (especially lower back) I would be able too. Prior to spending more for Swiss, all the other bags tore up quickly. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!

    Excellent Backpack for Laptop +

    I needed a new backpack that would provide protection for my laptop, but also give me enough storage space for several other devices. This backpack is well made and has a ton of separate storage spaces, laid out very nice. It even has a separate compartment for a tablet. Just keep in mind, this is kind of bulky, so if you are looking for something with more of a slim profile, this probably won't be a good choice.

    This SwissGear is a great laptop backpack that i use everyday for business and is very comfortable with plenty of weight in it. I even throw in my lunch. I like that it has a internal flap that flattens the bottom so you can sit it down and not worry it falling over. I have had it for a short time but Swissgear is a well known brand that it should hold up. When i purchased it it was on sale but i would of purchased it at regular price. this is a quality backpack.

    I chose a SwissGear backpack for my husband, because I have one and it has held up better than any backpack I have ever owned. His however has NOT lived up to our expectations. It's less than a month old, and the stitching on one of the shoulder straps is unraveling!! So disappointed!!

    I was in the market for a backpack. The one I had did not provide enough padding for my laptop. My co-worker suggested this one and I am very pleased. It's big enough to carry two laptops or tablets. Great cushioning to protect your devices. Additionally it has lots of space for things. Great for weekend trips where you don't want to carry a suitcase. I also found this to be a great value as well. Get this bag, you will not be disappointed

    This is a great bag. I looked at the options and this was slightly cheaper than its big brother. I like the iPad pocket and multiple pockets for other necessary things. I usually have a laptop, iPad, 2 iPhones and all of the needed add-ons for that. The bag itself is not excessively heavy. It is not for hiking so weight is not the key factor for me. Seems durable so far but I've only had it a month or so.

    The most disappointing thing about this backpack was how quickly the stitching on the straps and around the first zipper came apart. I attempted to claim as a manufacturers' error, however it was unsuccessful. But regardless of this product error, this backpack has a ton of space. Provides comfort, not to straining on the shoulders. Overall, this bag is amazing if the one you purchase has no defects!

    Great bag for computer and so much more

    This bag is a wonderful computer bag. I was able to put so much more into though. It's very roomy. It seems very durable, and the zippers are easy to use. Too many times bags have tough to move zippers, but not this one! I love that it stands up on its own if you put it down. The only thing I didn't like about this bag is the straps felt uncomfortable to me. They were a little more bulky than I'm used to. But that was minimal compared to the rest of the benefits.

    Best Laptop Backpack I've Ever Owned

    I travel constantly as a Flight Attendant and this laptop backpack is the best I've ever owned. It's highly durable, lightweight and has pockets galore. I carry a lot of different electronics with me and everything has its own compartment. I even carry my 360 or PS3 with me sometimes and the backpack holds the console, my iPad, and my Macbook Pro with room to spare - crazy, right? I love it.

    I had/have one of the swiss smart scan back packs but that one looked deflated and winked at times. I went with this senergy since it looked sturdy and I tried it out at the store. I loved that it can stand up by its self and looked really professional. The compartments are abundant and functional. My only small complaint is that at times I feel it a bit uncomfortable on my lower back, probably due to its bottom board as my smart scan never caused this.

    My plunge into the laptop backpack world was in part necessitated by the need for more storage. Yet I did not want to sacrifice protection for my top technology tool, nor wind up carrying a heavy rock that made me look like a hiker or a nerd. The SwissGear Synergy Laptop Backpack covered all of my bases, and has been a joy to carry and use for trips and meetings. This is the one to go with if you want a laptop backpack.

    I bought this for my 12 year old son along with his laptop. We fly a lot, and he has used this to transport his laptop as a carry-on. He also loaded it with his XBOX 360, controllers, cables, cell phone charger, games, and a few other things. The thing was definitely stuffed to maximum capacity, but all of that fit, and none of has gotten damaged in our travels thus far (busses, limos, planes, cars/trucks, etc).

    I just got a job in the city, taking the commuter rail each day. This bag has enough room to carry everything from my MAC book pro to my kindle to read on the train. On the snowy days I can also fit another pair of shoes so I can swap out of my boots once I get to the office. The only complaint I have is not having a good way to secure an umbrella. I almost knocked the train conductor out last week when the umbrella came flying out.

    This is the third Swiss Gear backpack I have purchased. This is a replacement for my son after using and abusing his for 4 years of college. It has protected his computer and carried the rest of his junk quite faithfully. Very durable piece of equipment. I use mine as a mobile office and can carry everything I need. Only problem I have had is one of the grommets pulled loose when I was pulling the backpack out of an overhead compartment on an airline.

    I travel with a lot of items but I am also very organized. This pack has so many zippers and pockets that I could not remember where I had put things. It seemed as though every pocket had a purpose. I also liked how it can stand up when I set it on the ground. It provides good protection for a laptop/tablet. Love this backpack.

    This is by far the most incredible backpack ever! Im a nursing student, so my backpacks are always loaded down; the extra cushion on it saves my back, and makes carrying everything so much easier. There are pockets for everything and not a single inch of space in this bag goes unused, not to mention how well-built and strong it is. I definitely reccommend this backpack! Worth every cent!

    The size and style are perfect for my needs. The bottom and back of the backpack is made out of heavy duty material that should prolong its life. I use this for work and needed something durable that would hold up to being tossed around and in general take a lot of abuse from me and the environment it's used in. Only time will tell but based on the material I think I will be good with this for a few years

    I bought this bag to replace a Targus brand backpack. All of the zipper handles on my Targus had broken off within a year. So I paid special attention to this when shopping for its replacement. I decided on the Swiss Gear because it has all metal zipper handles. Everything else on the Swiss Gear seems to be of a higher quality, both materials and construction. I think that the price is a little high, but I will be ok with it if the bag lasts.

    This bag has so much room it's amazing. There are a lot of pockets for everything. Sometimes I forget which pocket I put things in. My 15in laptop fits easily with all of the accessories. You could still get a set of overnight clothes in there. Straps are well padded as well as the back. It sits pretty flat with a little weight in the middle compartment.
