    Pretty solid bag

    I've been using the bag for a couple of weeks and the only problem I've found with it's that the velcro for the strap on the laptop pocket attaches to the accessory pouch in the back liner when the strap is not being used. I could see that making a hole after a few months of use. If they had swapped the velcro locations so that the hooks were on the strap and the loops were on the pocket, it wouldn't happen. Other than that, it's a solid bag, rigid enough to stand up on its own when empty, and padded enough that I feel like all my gear is safe when using it.

    Best bang for the buck. It just is.

    The bag is a little bigger than needed. The velcro should have been better quality and the key ring as well. Overall it's a great bag for laptop users with peripherals. There was nothing at this price point that was better than this bag.

    WHAT'S GREAT: I really spent time shopping around for a nice backpack. It seems I've found it. The Swiss Gear backpack is a bit more expensive than others on the market but it does pay off. So, price is not really the issue here. This backpack has got plenty of room to store all kinds of stationary and folders. I can easily fit my laptop and an Epson projector (EX 51) at the same time and still have room for other small things (DVD's, pen drives, a school folders, etc.). The fact that this bag stands on its own is really helpful because I can keep storing things inside without having to hold it up. I also don't have to worry about it flipping over and damaging my computer or other items inside. This might seem like a silly detail but in my case it really helps because I always have tons of stuff to carry around. I've only used this product for a week, so I cannot evaluate it in terms of resistance. However, from experience with other bags (Targus, etc.), it is clearly seen that this material is top notch, especially the top handle. The zippers are easily accessible and travel smoothly. Lots, lots, and lots of inside compartments: a Virgo's paradise! @@@@@@@@ I'm a Virgo). I love having all these options but I must confess that sometimes I get confused with having so many compartments but, hey, I've only owned this product for a week. So, I need some time to adjust to this. Last but not least, the backpack really does fit snugly and comfortably, not to mention the great looks! WHAT'S NOT SO GREAT: The inside velcro strap doesn't fully secure my laptop into place (I've a Sony Vaio 15" - VGN-CR420E). It doesn't mean my computer bounces around but it clearly doesn't hold it strongly into place. The manufacturer should have added more velcro surface so that we could tightly adjust this setting to our liking. In the end, definitely worth it!
