      Best Backpack I've Ever Owned

      I've had my Targus Drifter II backpack since mid-2012 and it has been my faithful travel companion for over five years and counting. The bag has held up much better than I had any right to expect when I first got it. Because my job requires me to travel several times a year for a couple of weeks at a time this thing has been hauled many thousands of miles and crammed into many an overhead airplane compartment and other than a few smudges you can't tell it's five years old. One of the things I love the most about this bag is the many, many zippered or velcroed compartments and pockets. The laptop sleeve is very spacious with with a very secure strap to hold your laptop in place. The next two compartments are rather large in and of themselves but offer mini-compartments to stash various accessories (chargers, battery packs, cables, head phones, etc). A few times a year I might have to take a three day/two night trip and this thing hold three days worth of clothes, my laptop, my iPad, chargers for everything, and a few other nicknacks. The most telling aspect of how much I like this bag is the fact that the company I work for provided me with another brand name backpack that costs about $20 more than the Drifter II retails for and that other backpack sits in a corner of my closet. The Drifter II is that darn good. Pros: Side water bottle pockets A ton of other pockets and pouches Sturdy zippers! Solid material (well built and resistant to damage) Excellent waterproofness Cons: I honestly have no cons to list for this product.

      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.

      Targus backpack for laptops & tablets

      What can I say this backpack is obviously made with quality materials and the handle on top is extremely well made. The entire bottom side of it is made of a good quality waterproof material, and so no worries if you had to put your backpack down on a wet surface for some reason because at least you know the items inside will get wet. The main area has an excellent wide opening to easily slide in/out your precious laptop, and another large designed to accommodate tablets too with both main pockets being well padded. Also, the other smaller pockets give ample room for other items too. Quality is excellent and worth the extra amount to make sure my items are well looked after, as this backpack should last you a long time...!

      I had an extremely similar Targus bag from 10 years ago that my wife, reluctantly talked me out of some 6 or so years ago. She still uses this bag daily and has ever since I let her "borrow" it. This style Targus bag is a warrior workhorse and I have zero doubt that my new bag give me a decade + of service.

      There was nothing wrong with this bag, but I ended up purchasing something that was more comfortable on my shoulders due to all the weight I carry in it. Gave it to my son and he loves it. The headphone jack in the strap and the phone pocket are his favorite features. Has lots of little pockets.

      We bought this for my son to transport his new laptop to school. At first glance it seemed kinda small to me however it is sufficiently roomy for his 15" laptop as well as basic college necessities. It has a wire reinforced handle and overall seems to be made to be quite durable. It has plenty of pockets for organization as well.

      My son is a gamer, he uses this bag for school to carry books, his school issued laptop, and other supplies. On the weekends when he goes over to a friends house uses this for clothes, his personal laptop, and accessories. Plenty of space, fully padded for protection of all equipment, and comfortable.

      Great long lasting backpack

      This product has all the space you need to carry almost anything with you. The only downfall for this is that the straps stiching will unravel and the stitching comes out. When this happens have it repaired immediately and the backpack will last a very long time.
