1) The Renegade has a tighter weave than the Gambit. I think the Renegade looks nicer (higher quality) when viewed next to the Gambit, but by itself the Gambit still looks nice. Both seem to be good quality and should last a long time, although due to the tighter weave the Renegade might be slightly higher quality.
2) The Gambit does not have as much padding in the laptop compartment compared to the Renegade. I considered this negligible in my comparison, because the Gambit is (IMHO) well-padded-- just less so than the Renegade. Unless you are unusually rough on your belongings, the Gambit's padding should be more than enough.
3) The zipper on the Renegade's laptop compartment only goes down about 20% of the height of the pocket. I have a 13" laptop and because it is fairly small, it does not fill up the entire pocket. I have to reach deep into the pocket to pull my laptop out, which is extremely difficult because it's a narrow pocket and it hardly unzips. The Gambit's design differs in that the pocket unzips all the way to the bottom; you can open the pocket completely. That makes it a breeze to get laptops in and out.
Difference #3 was a deal breaker for me. It made my decision to keep the Gambit and return the Renegade an easy one.
UPDATE (7/4/15): I've been using this backpack for a couple months now and love it. A few things to note:
1) When packed about 80% full, it fits under the seat of a small airplane (CRJ900). It would probably fit when fully packed.
2) The one thing I dislike about it is that I like to keep my keys, wallet, phone, etc. (i.e. stuff I want quick and easy access to) in the front pocket so I can keep the backpack on one shoulder and swing it around for access. The front pocket goes up a bit higher than on my previous backpacks and it's difficult for me to unzip it while wearing the pack.
3) There are so many pockets in this backpack that it's easy to lose things. On the other hand, it's really easy to keep things organized.
I bought the Gambit 17 as a replacement, but unfortunately one of the critical strap adjustment buckles cracked on my 5th work trip. The break is on the 3mm bar that holds the strap. Ogio is denying a warrantee claim on the weak buckle as accident/abuse. If you inspect the buckle there are all kinds of voids on the back where material is being "saved" during molding.
Apparently Ogio is features over quality or service now, even on the mercedes of their packs, so beware.
With that being said, this backpack will be a perfect replacement for my old one. Firstly, there's something like 11 pockets that can be opened from the outside! That may seem like a lot, but they're placed well and all come with heavy duty zippers. I like having a dedicated pocket for a laptop (I have a Surface tablet that I use daily) that is between my back and the main compartment for 2 reasons: 1. It prevents me from feeling lumpy objects in the main compartment, and 2. If I'm on the bike and I have to ride in the rain, there's a lower chance of it getting wet.
The materials seem to be made of a heavier duty fabric than my last backpack, which gives me hope that it will last longer than it's predecessor.
Another great feature is the padded pockets for tablet and laptop, as well as the moulded and padded pocket for glasses.
I have enough room to carry a change of clothing, a small emergency first aid kit, battery pack for charging devices, as well as a few small survival items.
This is basically a perfect bug-out bag, but still small enough to be carried every day and have extra room to spare.
The shoulder straps are very comfortable and seem as though I won't have any issues wearing this for long periods.
At the end of the day, Ogio has yet to disappoint me in the almost 10 years I've been buying their products (I have other things from that far back too). I'm glad to see the quality of their products has stood the test of time.
