Excellent product well made, just a little larger than hoped for, but still will work for our purposes.

Two of the main zippers split open repeatedly so when I'm walking I have to stop and try and reclose them to get them to stay shut, but they keep splitting.
Petrarch
Materials are very strong and the shoulder straps fit well and absorb some of the pull that you feel when walking.

Executive Summary: Only pack that I found with real laptop padding on the base and the added bonus of waterproofing in this area, as well. The pockets are sensible and easy to navigate. There is a divider in the main space and designated zippered pockets for a laptop’s power supply. Materials are very strong and the shoulder straps fit well and absorb some of the pull that you feel when walking.

The Targus hit the mark for me in three key areas: size, functionality, and laptop protection. The size is perfect, where its not too big, such that all your books or whatever fall to the back throwing off the balance. Also, speaking of internal balance, there is a divider inside the main compartment. The divider was something I was really looking for. Often, I find a lot of my text books are paperback and they have a tendency to slump over in an over-sized compartment and then they are bent and difficult to flip through. So, with the divider you can put paperbacks along with folders in the compartment section, thus preventing them from collapsing on themselves.

To me functionality is the balance of size, pockets, and compartments. I can’t stand it when a backpack has so many pouches, pockets, sleeves, zippers and so on, in a single area that everything gets lost. The Targus smartly has a very front pocket with three pen or pencil holders, a place for a graphing calculator and maybe one or two other things. But, most of all, when you open the front compartment all these items are visible and don’t get lost. Considering this is a laptop backpack it is important that you have a designated place for the power supply, as well. On both sides of the pack are typical outer pockets for a drink, but there are also zippered compartments that fit a power supply perfectly!

I really like Targus cases and have had several of them over the past 20 or so years.

I bought this case for a new laptop that was just a bit too big for my old Targus backpack (Citygear-Chicago bought in 2005). Lots of nice compartments, good padded compartment for the computer (which just fit with the shock absorber pad installed in the case, but it did fit).

However, 3 months later of fairly light use (about 1 week a month during travel), I've lost one of the zipper pulls (and they are metal!) and one of the shoulder straps is fraying out of where it was sewn into the bag (there's about 20-25% of the strap still attached).

It could be I've gotten a lemon. I've certainly expected higher of Targus. Since it's too late to return it to Amazon, I will return it for warranty replacement by Targus, but I'm not sure if I will keep using it (I certainly wouldn't want the shoulder strap to fail while on a trip).

And the fact that my last one is still going strong after 8 years should be a sign that I'm not that hard on my backpacks (or that they normally are much better built).

This bag has been through so much, rain, snow, concrete surfaces, and it still holds up like new! The pockets as well as overall design make this bag the best one ive ever purchased. I recommend for any and all activities!

The backpack is good. I was expecting more construction quality from Targus, is not bad but has some careless points on the interior.

The keys holder hook is unpractical. I had to take one from another backpack and attach to it. It allows me take and store my keys in a better and faster way.

On the interior, the bottom is semi rigid so the dimensions of the bottom remains nearly constant. It takes a lot of space on your back so if you look for some small backpack this is not for you. The advantage is that has a great capacity.

I chose this for the material top hand handle because I use it a lot on public transportation. It seems to be very safe so far.

My second one of these is now failing, the first having been kindly replaced by Targus.

Very good design. Unfortunately, the on both of the 2 that I've had, the stitching on the straps has failed, and on the second one, the plastic that protect the hand from the metal in the handle has cracked in several places, creating sharp edges.

It appears (to me) that some of the materials are not strong enough for heavier (15") laptops, plus an organizer, some paper files or magazines, and some misc items. Admittedly a fairly heavy load, but well within what the bag has space for.

The version 2, but all the previous reviews seemed to be what I wanted. Pluses - nice padding for the laptop on the bottom. I have a Dell 4800 - heavy and bulky - fits perfectly (15.6" screen). Lots of nice pockets - and well arranged. If I had to choose over, I would choose the same bag. The reason for 4 stars not 5 - a lot of people in reviews mentioned the zippers were small - they could stand to be a bit bigger, but they seem fine. The top pocket - the one that I can get to when the bag is under the seat in the plane or when I am on the train (bag is upright on train) - the material inside catches on dry skin almost like microfiber cloth does - picky at worst, not a show stopper. The one thing that could be better - the Synergy that I had had fantastic padding in the shoulder straps - this one felt like nothing in comparison. I'm used to it now, but they could beef up the padding over the shoulder a bit. Again, not a show stopper.
