This has the potential to be a great bag, but doesn't quite get there. I replaced a 7-year old Targus backpack that finally gave out, after >100,000 miles of air travel - the zipper for the main laptop compartment broke. Great product, so I thought - we'll go with Targus again.

Wrong. This bag had potential - TONS of storage, lots of pockets, some nice features advertised, so I ordered it. When it arrived, I noticed a significant decline in quality - the nylon is thinner, cheaper, and the laptop storage compartment has almost no padding to speak of. The zippers are cheap - go back to YKKs or at least something with a substantial track and closure mechanism - these won't last.

Targus also advertises a key clip in the front organizer pocket. WRONG - it's NOT there, even though Amazon.com and Targus' website both state that it exists. They've taken it out (likely to cut costs), and this a huge negative for me. Who wants to dig around in their bag after coming home from a week-long trip, standing in a hot parking garage after being on a crowded plane and in airports all days, trying to find their keys? I need those keys to be where they are easily accessible and always in the same spot. That was the primary driver for my old Targus bag - I needed that, and it had one.

On the plus side of things, this bag will hold all but the biggest laptops - guess that's why the padding is so insignificant. The expandable pocket on the front might come in handy - for something purchased last minute that I can't get into my carry-on or checked bag. There are four organizer pockets, ranging in size from gianormous to about the size of a CD case; there are two smaller zippered pockets for change, lip balm, pens, etc.

I've only had this bag for less than a couple weeks, so there's still quite a few uncertainties about this bag in terms of durability and longevity. Nonetheless, I have to admit too... this pack is HUUUGE!!! I'm currently only using it for school, in which this bag has more storage space than I'll probably ever need. On the other hand, it also has great potential for traveling, and may offer just enough space, organization, and convenience for a carry-on or weekend getaway. I have a 17" MacBook Pro that fits very easily with ample room to spare. However, I wonder if the 15.4" backpack would've been more snug and just right for the laptop, or maybe too small. The only thing I would've changed was put more velcro on beneath the strap in order to reduce the excess space inside the laptop pocket. Hence, I'm getting a sleeve in order to "fill" that space and for extra padding and Protection of my laptop. Other than that, the backpack does look very nice and stylish, feels very comfortable and lightweight. I just hope the material used to make it that light does not compromise its durability and longevity. But only time will tell I guess.

I needed a backpack for my huge ASUS G75VW computer with a 17.3 inch screen. This backpack, even though it says it's designed for 17 inch notebooks, could easily hold something even larger than my behemoth of a machine. It's got the main laptop compartment with padding (even on the bottom), two more large-size compartments, a compartment that is held together by buckles (presumably for something that doesn't need a lot of protection but that you just want to hold securely on your back), a small compartment in the front with light padding for phones, another small compartment in the front for pens and pencils and an mp3 player, a compartment on the side for something small, and finally one other mesh sleeve with a drawstring on the side for a water bottle. It even came with a CD sleeve in the main compartment, so you can easily carry CDs! Although it's a larger backpack, it looks classy and by no means does it make the wearer look awkwardly small while wearing it. I'd recommend this bag for anyone who has a large laptop and needs a comfortable, well-designed backpack to carry it around in.

1. Roomy
2. Can put a laptop and then some
3. Very strong
4. Had this bag for three years and still going strong

Right now it is hard to find a good and large bag that is roomy. This bag has everything. It is for people who are not going to fuss and cuss about "Oh the bag is too big". Well I like to carry a lot of my things so I need a large and strong bag. I'm glad I got this one. I hate those little thin nylon bags in which you put just a newspaper and the bag rips in the middle of the street spilling all your stuff. I NEVER had a problem with this bag. As stated 3 years using it and still going strong.

Rugged. Very useful. Just the right amount of pockets. Padding is plenty sufficient. Ample room for large laptop, iPad, accessories, documents, water bottle, sunglasses, etc. GREAT backpack.
I have had it for three years, and take the train to work. Those who take public transit to work can attest... many times running is required to not miss a "scheduled departure". Through all of it, this backpack has held up extremely well. I give this one my highest endorsement.
