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.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
-Easily fits 15" laptop into the laptop sleeve
-has many pockets to hold a ton of stuff, but compresses nicely when empty or not full to the brim
-has seven external pockets and several internal pouches for accessories like a laptop charger, phone charger, etc
- has a key hanger thing (not sure of the technical term) in the from pocket which makes it very easy to store your keys away and not lose them in the bottom of the pouch
-HAS A TABLET HOLDER. i capitalize this because i didn't see it anyone in the description. its a perfect size for an ipad to fit in comfortably.
-seems to very durable and rugged like everything Wenger makes
only one comes to mind, the zippers sometimes get stuck at a funny angle. they still function just find, but you kind of have to wiggle it or the part of the zipper you actually grab onto gets stuck. not a huge problem as i've had many backpacks with this issue.
Overall this is a wonderful bag. it has ample room for anything you would ever want to put in it as far as technology goes (which is what i got it for). the smartscan feature will come in handy at the airport as well, i just haven't had the joy of using it yet.
