Well built bag. As you'd expect from Wenger the construction, wheels, zippers are all solid. Sometimes the handle is a little tricky to extend or stow and over all it "feels" shakier than I would like but this is a common issue among these 4 stage extensions.

I like the layout. LOVE the front zip pocket and the file/flex drop down.

Note the size, particularly if you are looking at it for travel - it won't fit into many of the small overhead compartments such as the CRJs. Also, If you put much into the included laptop back (like a laptop) it really bulges into the adjoining pockets both in front and back. (I don't use the back compartment for clothes, but rather books - (which have to be offset as it is not tailored to fit dual 8x11 for instance).

That having been said, I *love* the bag when I am on site - aka just going back and forth between the home/hotel and office. The included laptop back includes the dedicated mounting strap so it can easily ride on the main case as an add on piece eliminating any "under utilization" elements from trying to overload it. There are also no concerns with overhead in this situation.

Just don't try to over pack it and know you will be gate-checking it if space is any sort of an issue.

PS We got my wife the Potomac. The layout is a little different, the "wonder" pocket that I love so much is moved to the front and it eliminates the back "extra" compartment. It isn't that much thinner and she is still having problems with it in some overheads. It also lacks the dedicated strap on the side so you end up using the handles of the case itself.

Case is very well made, and includes a pull-out briefcase with its own handle. This case accomodates a 15.4 inch laptop, and the entire briefcase nests in the rolling case. If you remove the briefcase, that space becomes a holder for a 17" laptop. strong handles and an easy roller, with a large back pocket that opens at 90 degrees -- perfect for a short business trip's worth of clothes.
Better quality than equivalent Targus products (which I previously used for my 17" laptop, until the pull handle failed after a couple of years).

The Wenger Patriot is, for me, the classic road warrior bag. It has plenty of geek appeal, with its many pockets that allow the anal retentive organizer separate and categorize its content. It is large enough to be my primary carry-on for day trips up to 2 or 3 days, and small enough to squeak by as a "personal item or brief case" on most flights other than those on excruciatingly small commuter planes. The frequent traveler will see this bag being rolled around by more other frequent travelers than almost any other bag - and there is good reason. It is more bag for the price than almost any other. There have been many minor version changes over the years as the company has made minor changes. I'm on my second one after about 7 years. The old one is still usable, but the wheels got embarrassingly noisy as the bearings wore out from miles of duress. My new one has slightly less room in the back compartment due to thicker, presumably more durable or cheaper-to-make tubes on the pop-up handle - the old one's handle was much thinner but never gave up on me despite the fact I put that bag through hell. This is indeed the "swiss army knife of travel bags." Unless you need much more expensive "status luggage" to satisfy an executive ego, you cannot go wrong with it. My old one has been my most reliable travel companion for years, outliving 3 laptops, 2 projectors, 3 cell phones, and so on. Even though I've replaced it, I won't throw it away. It will become my second bag on those trips where I need more capacity, because these are just the right size that you can stack them and get away with carrying two of them onto most planes.

It's compact enough to slide under the airline seat. Computer easily removable when going through security checks. Also lots of room fo extras such as snacks, reading material, etc.

This is an extremely well made product and well thought out. It goes far beyond the Samsonite 17" Roller Case I had before that cost $30 more than this one and constantly had zipper failures and handle failures.

One note of caution though ... make sure your 17" Laptop has been on the Atkins or South Beach diet if you plan to carry your laptop in the internal case. A Dell Latitude Inspiron XPS Gen 2 does not fit in the inner case at all. It is apparently designed for more modern and thinner 17" laptops.

My husband had been looking for a wheeled bag that would accomodate his computer but also serve as a travel bag for his long distance business trips. This would have cost hundreds of dollars with all the options in another bag. It is sturdy, compact, and pratical. Wheels are smooth rolling and the handle is stable. What more can I say? It goes through airport security without question.

I purchased this bag back in 2006 to use primarily for a combination laptop bag and overnight bag, to take on my frequent overnight business meetings, where I didn't need a lot of clothing. Since then, this bag has traveled thousands of plane, train, bus and auto miles, taken several overseas trips, endured being crammed full of everything I need for a six-day trip that keeps me from having to check luggage, endured my local puddle-jumper airline treatment, and it still looks as good as the day I purchased it. I even have a 17" computer that fits just fine in this case. I know that Wenger is a quality company, but I can't believe the durability of the materials used in this case and the workmanship, all offered at this price! Everything still works perfectly...the telescoping handle, the zippers, the wheels...all work as well as the day I purchased this item.

For example, on my last six-day trip to Europe, I carried a week's worth of clothing plus two pairs of shoes in the clothing compartment (you need to pick your clothing well and roll them up), my laptop, its cords and mouse, travel guides, food and bottled water, personal items, and a toiletry bag, as well as a bunch of other items (like a first aid kit), and was able to save my other practically-empty, carry-on for souvenirs! What continues to amaze me is its durability...in spite of the treatment this bag has taken, it still looks, and functions, like new! I love this bag!
