I've had this backpack for almost 6 months now and its a good solid backpack with tons of room. No defects yet and everything still in excellent working order and I do use this daily.

Cons - I do find a few things odd to me. For instance: The rear compartment, where you put the laptop, has a zipper that goes down one side and only up as high as top center. I sometimes have trouoble getting my 15.6" laptop in and out of there. I cant imagine how easy to use it would be with a larger laptop. They should have at least let the zipper go all the way across the top.
The second thing that bothers me is the shoulder straps. I'm a large guy, 6'1" 250lbs and the padded part of the strap just makes it to my chest making it uncomfortable to carry using only 1 strap, like you see school kids do, so I've been wearing it using both straps.

Pros - I would like to state again that I love the room this backpack has. It might not look it but it has volumes of room. I can easily carry my laptop, charger, mouse, phone charger, large bottle of ibuprophen, hairbrush, stain stick, dayplanner, lunch, dinner, two 2 liter bottles of soda, and a couple of books and still have some room to spare.

Not too much to say about this bag that hasn't already been said. It is pretty boring as far as swissgear bags go. Lots of black woven vinyl. Very well built but feels a little 'cheap' compared to the SA9360 or the Wired Laptop Backpack for 17-Inch Notebook. It does not have a wired headphone socket on the shoulder strap like those two either. Speaking of shoulder straps, they are thinner than the other two models mentioned both in width and padding so I do not think that this is quite as comfortable. That said, it felt fine lugging around the laptop and overnight clothes etc for a couple of hours. The two models mentioned are a very tight fit for 17" notebooks though - they should be listed as fitting all 16" and the slender Macbook Pro 17" only. Bigger desktop replacements will not fit easily unless you are willing to remove or slit the thick bottom padding.

As my title says, this one does comfortably fit the HP 17" widescreen models just fine, however, do NOT expect the TSA to let the 'SmartScan' feature through with a big laptop in there.. The mesh viewing window for the smartscan is about the size of a netbook so a proper laptop simply looks like a large plastic device in there! My experience was a delay of 5 more minutes while they had me take it out and scrutinize it and myself. They recommended that I take it out in future so they can visually see it as well as x-ray it, the man did say that when they can see laptops properly in the smartscan style bags, they are satisfied. In my opinion, by the time you have unzipped, unfolded and balanced the bag before sliding it on the belt for viewing, you might as well have just taken the damn computer out in the first place!
Final point: I do not think that an 18" Notebook would fit in this bag without stretching the super smooth zippers around it on the top corners.

I purchased this Swissgear model specifically because i needed something that would fit my 17" HP Pavilion. I had looked at other models but most claimed they would fit "up to" 17 inches witch customer reviews showing their limitations.

UPs:
product is SPACIOUS enough to fit multiple binders (3" rings) all of my writing implements, sun glasses, keys, two .5 liter water bottles, ipod, lunch, and laptop with it's accessories and honestly i could probably fit more if i were inclined to carry the weight.

ORGANIZED with numerous zippered pockets inside and out. these help to keep items separated and easy to find. it also has those little organizing pockets inside that i never actually use. i count 4 small organizing sipper pockets in addition to the 3 main pockets,

features what could be used as a tablet pocket inside the smart scan area (i don't have a tablet to test this pocket. sleeve mentioned is not outfitted with extra padding between laptop and possible tablet, it's only padded on the side shared with the main compartment)

HANDLE is wide to spread the weight evenly and sturdy enough that it doesn't bend around my hand when i choose to use it.

it seems STURDY with thick stitching and in many places it is stitched for added support as well as at the seams. key areas are double stitched.
even

Downs: i haven't noted any yet that will affect me but here are some other notes;
although the back is heavily padded for comfort while carrying it is not outfitted with a lot of extra padding on the bottom. there is perhaps a 1/4 inch or less at the bottom of the laptop compartment and even less in the main compartment. something to keep in mind when setting down your bag on hard surfaces.

Purchased this bag for my son as he left for college and wanted a bag that he could transport his laptop in. The bag came fast and appears to be very durable and roomy. Unfortunately the laptop did not fit. He can zip up the bag most of the way but the corner of the laptop is exposed. At the laptop gets closer to the top of the bag, the bag gets narrow where it rounds over at the top. I have returned the bag for something larger.
My son has a ASUS republic of gamers 17" laptop.
