Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Targus Drifter II Backpack for 16-Inch Laptop, Black/Gray (TSB238US) (Personal Computers)
I am a computer professional and I have carried a laptop to and from work every day for the past 15 years. In addition I have traveled for work and my work is demanding enough that I even take my laptop on vacation. I have used more laptop bags than I can remember. Due to my constant use; I am pretty hard on them and so I have become pretty picky as well. I liked the design of this bag online. It arrived yesterday and I took it out of the plastic tried one of the zippers only to find that it caught on the material as soon and it moved from one angle to another. Thinking it was just that zipper, I tried another...after testing four of the zippers each catching there was no way I was keeping this bag. I would have a broken zipper or torn material exposing the compartment in a matter of weeks if not days. I would say that the issue is either a design flaw for a manufacturing defect, either way I wasn't going to waste my hard earned money. It is going back today!

Hi Mr. D. Causey,
Which one would you recommend? You seem to be an expert on the subject.

Um I'm not a fan of Targus bags, they just seem to be of low quality. And the fact that the backpack straps are so thin and uncomfortable. PLUS the portion that is up against your back looks uncomfortable as well.

I disagree with the straps being too thing & uncomfortable . . . any thicker they would get in the way for us road warriors. Quality is not quite as good as some other bags, but well above average . . . and back padding is very comfortable for the 1/2 hr to an hour of walking I end up doing with it fully loaded on my back several times a week. After a couple months, still a great bag. (no problems with my zippers either).
