I needed to replace my old laptop backpack and noticed many colleagues using the SwissGear line. The difficulty in ordering one of these on-line is that there are a number of variations and the differences are subtle. From everything I could learn an all websites, including Amazon, there were 2 models I was interested in. the SA1900 (this one) and the SA1923. The photos are misleading. They are not necessarily unique to those specific models. I had to order both packs and compare in-hand and send the one back that I didn't fit my needs.
The only difference between these 2 models, besides the color, is this one has a compartment for an iPad opposite the laptop compartment in the section that opens up to lie flat on the airport's scanning conveyor. Thus, your laptop will be in one half and your iPad in the other as it goes through the scanner. The SA1923 has a full width pocket for a slim folder or notebook in the iPad's location. All other compartments and sections of the pack are identical. I loved the color red color of this one, which is unique, but I don't use an iPad and I wanted the pocket there for travel papers (itinerary, boarding passes, receipts, etc.) Also, keep in mind access to the laptop compartment is on one side only (right side while wearing the pack). The zipper goes from the top of the pack down the side.
The pack is roomy and can old a lot. Probably more than I would really want to carry. My only complaint with both packs is I wish it had just a couple of other small zippered sections inside for small miscellaneous items often needed on business trips (e.g. medications, snacks, sunglasses or reading glasses, etc.).
There are other models in this line that are smaller and more simple. If the features each offer is important, just don't rely on the pictures if they seem to be the same as other models.
I really wanted to leave a positive review on this pack but unfortunately there were a few issues that are deal breakers.
First, unfortunately the zipper did break on my pack. What happened is the stitching started to come out of the seam around the zipper and was getting caught in the teeth and eventually broke the teeth of the zipper within weeks of owning the pack. I didn't realize how serious it was until one day while standing in a crowded conference one of the zippers broke apart at that point and my laptop fell out and hit the floor behind me. Luckily my Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is well built and had a good case on it so it wasn't hurt but would have been toast without a case.
Second, the service from Swiss Gear has been completely non-existent. I contacted them because this was obviously a defect in their pack and it was only a few months old. I get no response except an extremely large email filled with all kinds of legal stuff about their responsibility and liability. No personal response, no responses when I replied with pictures of the damage and an clear explanation of what broke and where.
I am more than disappointed in Swiss Gear on so many levels. I have multiple Camelbak backpacks and several of them are 15-20 years old now and this pack couldn't even last 1/2 a year. It's one thing to have products fail but to have no service to support customers when products fail is the deal breaker for me. I will never buy anything from Swiss Gear again.
- 15" HP EliteBook

They fit in the ScanSmart sleeve and anywhere else you may normally think to put a laptop. In a viable inner pocket, I can put either the Mac or the HP in it ALONG WITH my Cooler Master NotePal X2 Laptop Cooling Pad ([...] which is decently bulky on its own.
Some other reviews have mentioned this, but the 1900 actually has a pocket opposite of the ScanSmart laptop area. I will be posting a picture of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" in it. It clearly is big enough to put papers, airline tickets, and/or whatnot in it for traveling. Due to its location, I suggest not putting something that could poke you in the back like a regular sized mouse or any non-flat object.
The bag has a good number of compartments, but transitioning from my old Dell backpack, it has less. It's fine though. At maximum potential, this has a ton of space.
It has a detachable keyring in the outermost pocket, which I know some people look for.
It is also comfortable on my back. For reference, I am 5'11.5" wearing XL sized shirts.
I go on business trips once every three months or so, so I plan to update this once I go through the TSA checkpoints with it.
I'm rating it as near perfect as I can without being perfect (4 out of 5 stars) because I'd like more pocket accessible from either the inside or outside of the backpack.
Feel free to ask me questions via the comment section or the Q/A section!

I used this for a 30 days eurotrip in the summer, and it was perfect !
Not too bulky, I used it as a carry-on on some flights, and it was easy to move around...Read more
