    My favorite backpack ever!!

    I purchased a Targus backpack in 2005 when I first moved for graduate school. It was my first laptop backpack and had all the pockets and bells and whistles I desired. Flash forward to 2018, when I realized that carrying my now tattered backpack through an airport or down the street was getting me some strange looks. The thing still worked, but I needed something new. And, I found something better in this Targus Drifter II. It is lightweight and ergonomic. It doesn't put pressure on my back in weird places. There are a multitude of pockets. Some, I haven't even used yet. It is great for plane travel, as it isn't bulky. I can carry a change of clothes, books, sundries, etc without overfilling it. And, it distributes weight evenly, so again, nice and balanced. The look is a bit rugged, but still subtle enough to take into a professional setting. I love everything about it.

    Best Backpack I've Ever Owned!

    I've used this backpack for years (it was originally called the T.A.N.C.), and it's beat out Osprey, North Face, Samsonite, and SwissGear/Wenger when I've compared them. I travel a lot, anywhere from 2 nights to 2 weeks at a time. And I've used this bag the whole time. Whether I'm going to a client's house or on vacation in Mexico, this bag has never let me down. It easily holds at least 3 day's worth of clothes, along with a laptop, power cord, cables, notepads, etc. When flying, I've never had a problem storing this in the overhead compartments. Moreover it doesn't collect dog fur, like most other backpacks do. When I was replacing my T.A.N.C., I bought (and then returned): Osprey Nebula Samsonite Paracycle North Face Surge SwissGear Synergy They all failed in comparison to this backpack! The attached pic is the T.A.N.C. next to the Samsonite and North Face. My ONLY gripe is, I don't like the gray in the new design.
