    Decent backpack, not for my needs though

    For starters, this thing is vertically large. It stands taller than any other backpack I have owned in the past. With that being said, there was not much I didnt like about it. I loved the extra security flap that covered the other zippers (helps prevent people opening your pack when they are behind you). This thing also has a LOT of storage. Laptops and tablets and multiple other areas, it is quite spacious BUT only if you plan on putting thin items in it. Do not even think about storing multiple items of clothing in it. As I said it is tall but does not offer much by way of width, I ended up returning it for this reason. I had my numerous smaller items in it, along with a laptop and tablet, then I tried getting a few t-shirts in there also, it was not pretty. So if you plan on carrying just tech stuff, it will work for you! Another negative for me, the hot/cold pouch on the front. That too offered room vertically, but not horizontally. Also, why did they bother with it, is a question that comes to mind. Anyway, yeah it is a very spacious backpack, conditionally speaking, but there are better options out there for the cost.

    I regularly use this bag for air travel and initially was concerned even this monster wouldnt be enough to carry all the things I needed to ensure were with me at all times this was to be my primary carry on item. So far it's been up to the task and then some. It fits 2 15.6" laptops, and iPad, over the ear headphones in hard case and tons of misc charging adapters, external hard drives. Fit's my digital nomad lifestyle very well, also when im in a location other than the airport the thermal pocket is quite nice for keeping drinks. No questions or comments on the durability of this bag yet, but I will say that it's survived 4 round trip's and TSA thus far. Looks and feels brand new.

    Took this with me on an international vacation. Wanted something that would hold my laptop, phone, water, & day-to-day souvenirs. This bad boy did the trick. It's amazing how much you can cram in here! Sometimes I was afraid it would tear or rip in certain parts because of how much I was stretching the poor thing, but I did an "after trip" inspection, and there was no visible sign of tearing at all. Also, the design of this pack prevents any "easy" theft from behind because of the way the top flap lays over all the zipper parts. Really a great pack overall! Love it.

    I bought this primarily to protect my 17" laptop on a cross-country trip. This thing is fantastic, with designated slots for the laptop, a tablet, books, cables, and everything else I needed to pack. I especially liked the flap that snaps shut over the top, protecting all of the zippered areas. That top flap also has a very convenient zippered slot for things you need access to immediately, like boarding passes and ID. This is a great backpack with a lot of thought and experience in the design, plus it is very sturdy.

    This thing is awesome the laptop/console pocket is suspended two inches from the base.it hasa padded tablet pocket attached directly to the laptop pocket. I loaded it with all my Xbox1 accessories including large headphone case and elite controller case, PLUS everything in my Okley backpack. This thing has the same sunglasses compartment and an extra insulated pocket. I cold stuff five redbulls in there. The padding is everywhere. I considered a console only case, but instead retired my everyday backpack and am loving this one.

    Uncomfortable and Not Very Roomy

    I thought that with thick shoulder straps and a sternum strap that it would be a comfortable backpack. With even a light load it was very uncomfortable. I was also surprised at how little capacity there was once you put in some IT items. Several reviewers on YouTube have the same assessment. This backpack is more "vertical" than most to accommodate large laptops easily. But that orientation cuts into storage. I also think the hot/cold storage compartment is pretty small--it might hold some snacks but not much else.

    I recently bought an Acer Helios 500 laptop and could not find any solid info on the internet about which backpacks it will fit in. I decided to be the test mule and bought this Targus Voyager II and the Helios fits! Now there's some solid info about this on the internet. The rest of the bag is spacious enough to fit everything from my old backpack, so good to go now.

    This backpack easily holds my MSI 17” gaming laptop with my 15” Dell work laptop, the work iPad, various power cords, work signature pad, etc. Very roomy. Only this I think could be better is more smaller zippered pockets instead of the two large ones in the two separate compartments. But that is a VERY minor comment. This backpack is one of the best I’ve ever used.

    It very supportive. It is a little heavy without the items so keep that in consideration when thinking about weight. However, it is durable and holds what I need. NOt much room for wiring and headphones. Do not expect to carry many books maybe about one binder and 3 notebooks and your laptop. I love the little case to hold snacks which works for me being diabetic.

    Nice pack for multiple laptops / notebooks. Durable with carrying handles in good locations. I would have given it 5 stars, but it was a little pricey (but still a good value) and it does not flex enough when putting the notebooks into it. Keep in mind, that is what makes it durable so it's a give and take. Overall, it is an excellent pack.

    I travel all over for work. This bag fits my work laptop, gaming laptop, peripherals, I-pad, and all of my other gadgets, cables, and work accessories. Not to mention it has a dedicated sunglasses pocket and an insulated pocket for hot/cold goodies. This is the bag for a young tech oriented professional.

    This backpack is absolutely perfect for travel it has enough room for the majority of things and it protects my 15.6 inch laptop from falls and theft! i would say my only con is it doesn't have enough small pockets to store 6 different types of cords. I would still buy it regardless!

    Plenty of room and an excellent number of compartments to not only store my BYOD items but to carry the necessary tools of my trade. I own my own business in IT Security and need to carry a minimum of tools and paperwork with me on Client jobs. This bag fits it all comfortably. It travels well, too.

    This was an awesome buy. I needed a fancy, durable, compact, and reliable bag for 2 of my work laptops. The Best Buy employee showed me the difference between back packs and laptop briefcases. I am very happy with my purchase and my laptops are safe and enjoying their new home!!!

    It's hard to find a bag that has it all when you carry a 17" laptop. This backpack has everything I need for traveling for work. Lots of pockets. Also has a padded area for a tablet. I carry both a 16"and 17" laptop and they are both well protected. Great bag

    Great inner protection for my laptop, back padding makes it super comfortable, and the many pockets and extra pockets inside of those pockets leave plenty of space for anything! The cooler pocket helps keep my lunch warm or cold as well. Love it!

    Comfortable backpack with all of the room for anything you might need to stow away. The brand makes great backpacks and is my second from them. They also make good cases for electronics. The only downside is it’s pretty large.

    This computer back pack has exceeded all my expectations. Especially with the insulated pouch that will hold chilled medicines while on the road. Holds all of my electronic equipment to include cables, adapters, and 6 port charging stand.
