    stitching came loose

    This was a surprise because I love Wenger bags and they are often very high quality lasting years with little wear and tear. However, after only a few days, the stitching holding the strap to the bag was coming apart. As a note, I am in grad school so the only thing I put in the bag are my books and school supplies, nothing a typical backpack couldn't handle. I figured this was a fluke so I went to exchange it for the same bag in stock, but the stitching on that bag was loose as well and was easily coming apart. They only had one in stock so I couldn't check out any others. Perhaps my local Best Buy just got a bad batch, but unfortunately I cannot recommend this bag based on the poor quality of the stitching job, especially when you're dishing out over $100.

    Almost too big, but otherwise perfect

    This bag has space for EVERYTHING. I like having lots of peripherals and living out of one bag, and this definitely lets me do that. I fit my laptop, a wireless keyboard, wireless mouse, cooling tray, mousepad, 2 portable chargers, a universal power kit, several wall chargers for various products, 2 head sets, a few notebooks, writing supplies... And there's still tons of room. The materials are great, the hardware is solid, and there's a stiff section in the middle that makes a protected volume. That makes it a little bulky all the time, buuuut I love having everything I need close to hand.

    As a result of starting a new job in December, I started taking the train into the city instead of driving to work in the suburbs. I wanted to purchase a backpack to carry a laptop on the train. I purchased the Wenger - LUMIN Backpack, and really love it! It's very sturdy with lots of storage space and ample padding to adequately protect a laptop and a tablet. It' also is made with very good quality materials and has pockets for a travel mug, chargers, phone, cables, pens, etc. I't looks like this laptop will last me for several years.

    I had a Wenger backpack that was about 12 years old that needed replacing. I started looking and found the Lumin. It has all the pockets and spaces you are looking for. Everything has a place and is easily accessible. The backpack has dual zippers on all compartments except the small one on top. This makes accessing them very easy. It has a pass through on the back for sliding over a handle on a pull along bag for easy carrying. The straps are also very nice and light. Highly recommend for an IT person on the go.

    This bag is one of my favorites of the Swiss brand. Funny story: Bought this for myself at a discounted price when I saw it on the "Deal of the Day" email. I asked my fiance if he wanted one aswell but he said no. When it arrived in the mail, he couldn't take his hands or eyes off of it. He said I should have known to order two even though he said no. Lol. Oh well, I will be getting another one when I see a good deal. ;)

    This is good, not great, but a great price and I will get years out of it. I like Wenger's high capacity packs and this is no exception. I can fit at least 2 15" laptops in plus a tablet and a smaller laptop (like a 13" macbook). I love the sleeve for attaching it to a rolling suitcase. The small top pocket is a little snug so it's hard to get my hand in to dig around for keys etc. Better than ok.

    When I went back to college (7 years ago) my daughter fell in love with my Wenger backpack. I got her a Wenger during middle school, but she still liked mine better. Finally, this model came out and she loves it. It is closest they have gotten to my 2010 model. It is spacey and has a similar divided section in the front pocket for the pens...erasers. Previous versions were not as compatible with differently shaped school supplies.

    The backpack is very sturdy. It is strong enough to carry all 30-35 pounds of books that I have to carry to class. The laptop case works well it has protected my laptop from drops and falls while it has been in the backpack(it was not fully loaded at the time). It sits very comfortably on my shoulders and has good padding on the shoulder straps and back portion. I would recommend for anyone who wants a good backpack for a decent price

    Finally had to replace my Swiss Gear Pegasus backpack. Would have loved to get the same one, but the newer ones are a little smaller. Got his on sale, has it's pros and cons, still getting used to where I put all the stuff. Like the rugged handle and a better "slip through" on the back when traveling.

    Was looking for a bag replacement to carry my laptop, iPad, electrical devices and still have room for a set of gym clothes if needed. I ended up spending more than I wanted to but it was totally worth it. It fits everything I need and more. My giant coffee fits in the cup carrier. The straps make for a comfortable ride on my shoulders

    This is a nice backpack, but it has two small flaws. First, it falls over constantly. No matter what I put in it, it refuses to stand up as advertised. Second, some of the compartments are not fully separated on the inside -- so small items I put in one compartment end up in the other.

    I got this for my daughter who is a sophomore in college. It is sturdy and has lots of pockets for everything. She loves it and it keeps her laptop safe. It is sturdy and well-constructed and should last a long time for her.

    Didn’t know how much I would love this roomy pack. I bought it as a carry on / under the seat item for my last trip to Texas. Super well built. Double zipper pulls allow the locking of all but two compartments. Very sturdy and durable. Top handle is steel cabling. So very impressed!

    Great Backpack with a lot of roomy compartments. Even has 2 small side pockets with water bottle holder. Perfect for traveling while carrying a lot of different electronics and chargers. Would give 5 stars if it weren't for the hook in the front that gets caught into everything.

    Bought this to store my laptop and tablet as well as other electronics. This bag is great, the slide through feature allows you to attach it to the handle on your luggage, it holds my laptop, iPad, headphone case, chargers, water bottles, boots and has room for more items.

    I love this backpack. This is my second one. The first was used at work (industrial setting) for a few years when I finally retired. I packed it heavy. A couple of the zippers broke, but all in all it was in decent shape. I got a new one, just because.

    This is a very versatile backpack. It was able to hold the chrome book my sons school provided and all of his other schoolwork. It is held together nicely as he has used it on a daily basis.
