Very good bag for the mney,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsonite Luggage Vizair Laptop Backpack (Apparel)
I want to start by saying I am a graduate business/law student. I have a laptop, I have a lot of books. I travel sometimes. I want my backpack comfortable to carry, protect my laptop WELL, and hold all my books, pens, highlighters, notepads, usb sticks, laptop charger, business cards and so on. Those are the needs that I keep in mind when I reveiw this bag.
I would like to give this bag something like 4,5 stars. Being a samsonite, it is not perhaps surprising that the backpack has the general feel and qualities of a travel suitcase. Hard to explain, but you will surely understand if you see it. That being said, the quality is generally superb, specially compared to most backpacks. The protection for the laptop is mostly top notch. The only problem is that a 15,6 inch laptop will not fit perfectly but will have the zipper tightly enclosed around it, meaning that any hits to the top of bag, on the edges of the laptop will likely damage it. That is a bit dissapointing. Also, its too bad the side pockets (for bottles) do not have any zippers, so that they could double as pockets for other stuff such as the computer charger. I would also have appreciated a business card holder and a few more separation pockets in the bottom pocket, to hold and separate stuff such as a USB stick, screen cleaner etc. As it is they are all in the same mesh pocket and it is not very orderly (Im a bit of neat freek who loves organization). If it was just a little bit more of a mobile office this would be amazing. Everything else I am extremely happy with.
