- Im 6'2, broad shoulders, still fits comfortable, albeit a little small.
- When I ride my bike, I can adjust it very tight to the body and it works, doesn't move around.
- compression straps do a great work of helping with bulk and front heavy load.
- water bottle pockets on the outside are awesome, IMHO, a must on this kind of backpack.
- I carry a MacBook Pro 15.4, Water Bottle, Kindle, charger for both, rain jacket, rain pants and other stuff comfortably.
- rain / snow proof (tested).
- I've put it through the ringer and still looks new, I've added other bags to it attached by carabiners, ridden 15 miles with it, and the bag remained intact.
- strap "thing" for holding your sunglasses is pretty cool.
- When put on the floor, there is padding between the laptop and the floor (big deal).
- Back can get sweaty in a hurry, doesn't ventilate as well as high end bags.
- no chest strap (its bad because it needs it in my opinion)
- unless you have a flip phone, "phone" compartment on the strap is useless (too small for a smartphone), in fact, I havent found a thing I can put into that little pocket and I've searched because its so easy to reach.
- if you need to carry a bunch of stuff like lunch or gym clothes/shoes, prepare to carry another bag along.
- When heavy, you feel it, to the point that I feel my macbook charger when I carry it, or my multi-tool for biking.
- Front compartment is very hard to use because the zipper only opens so much, still usable, but it can get frustrating specially for people with big hands, they should've made the zipper open more vertically as well as horizontal or make the whole thing expandable.
- Its a great small bag, if you cycle a lot I would recommend to look at the big boys like Chrome or Timbuk2 (I have a Especial Tres myself), but if you dont cycle and dont necessarily need a lot of space, this is a great investment to protect your laptop.
The front most pocket is horrible. It doesn't open up very much and it's fairly deep. You can fit a decent amount of stuff in there, but getting to it is difficult. You can't really open it up enough to see well inside or to maneuver around very well inside.
My bag also is deformed somewhat. The carry handle is crushed on one side. I've tried working on it, but it always forms back to the crushed state. It makes picking it up by the carry handle a chore.
The rest of the bag is pretty decent. The shoulder straps are strong, comfortable and their adjustments are excellent. I really like the sewn in ends and quick adjustment capability. The padding on the back is excellent as well. Not too much to make the thing bulky, but plenty of padding for if you've got the thing loaded down it would still be comfortable on you. Bag looks pretty good too. I got the all black version.
Today I needed to bring my bag to a school function. While closing a pocket, not associated with the storage of the computer, the zipper pull simply fell off. There was no pressure on the zipper and the pocket was not overstuffed in any way. I attempted to return to Amazon but since I’ve had the bag for 60 days (probably used 5 times) it is no longer eligible for return.
I am disappointed in Swissgear for producing and selling a poorly manufactured product and also in Amazon for not standing by the product they sold. If this had happened in a real store with live people I could have returned an obviously defective product. Keep this in mind if you intend to purchase early for Christmas gifts. If they end up being junk and six weeks has elapsed Amazon probably won’t let you return them.
This was the second one I purchased. The first one was really excellent and I had it for about 4 years with heavy everyday use. The zipper broke and I just figured I'd buy a new one.
I purchased my current Swiss gear bag in December of 2014 (same exact model as before). I realized immediately when I received it that the materials that had been used to manufacture the bag were different. It felt cheaper, but I actually believe I ended up paying more for it. Anyway, I kept it. About 8 months later (over the course of summer 2015) now the shoulder strap is basically hanging on by a thread.
I am currently contacting the manufacturer and will update my post accordingly based on their response, or on what Amazon says.
