Is the laptop section truly in the rear - next to your back? Another website showed the bag with the compartment in the front leading to tipping over - my complaint with the rolling bag I have now.
I've beat this thing up and it keeps on rollin'. Three semesters later it is just starting to tear (and I am *really* hard on it). Good purchase....

Got this for my son pand going to college,needed something to carry his books in,but didn't want a back pack for the reason that the books he has to take and use is so heavy,saw this and he loves it!So many little places to put pens,pencils,his tape recorder,ect.Plenty of room for his books,and the thickness of them he carries 4 very thick books,plus his work books,the notebooks,ect.He is tall and very comfortable pulling it,the wheels work great,and doesn't have to bend over to pull it,and also it can be a regular pack pack.Was worried about the wheels,but they hold up just fine on different surfaces,would recommend this to all.Read More
This was the 7th knapsack & it didn't pass the kid's treatment. I had returned so many prior to it that had been purchased on this site, other sites & in store through the insurance policy but the only one i found to last is the lll bean & they have a lifetime warranty that i haven't yet had to use. For moderate handling this is good enough but if you need indistructable then this bag is not the one to go withRead More
This backpack is roomy and very durable inside. However, I had the bag for two weeks and the handle busted. It was unable to be fixed. The bag is basically useless to me now.Read More
My son really likes his new backpack. It is saving his back from aching with all the heavy schoolbooks he has to lug around for middle school.Read More
It holds a lot, the telescoping handle has 2 lockable positions, the compartments are useful, the bag seems durable. The wheels roll super smoothly over all surfaces. Great wheels! I shopped around first and this bag was the best at this type of price. Most places want at least double the money. The only thing is that I worry about the durability of the handle. I have no reason to worry other than it wobbles a bit sometimes, but that could just be how it attaches to the internal frame. But I haul a LOT of stuff and go up and down steps etc. so I'm rough on it, and it has held up so far. I'm very pleased with my purchase.Read More
My son is a backpack killer. He had just gone through a HP back pack in 2 mos. time! And the backpack (and the weight in it) was starting to hurt his back. So even though it isn't cool right now at his schools, I looked for a wheeled one for him that was durable and affordable. I wanted to keep it under $50.00, and it needed to look like a back pack so he could stuff it in his locker if need be. Enter the Horizon Wheeled Laptop Backpack. Met all the above criteria after a thorough search! So far, so good. My son was happy with the styling, and he knows if his back starts getting sore he has the wheeled option. Its too early to tell the extent of durability, but the finishing was good on the backpack and it doesn't look as if any seams will rip any time soon.Read More
When I got a heavier laptop about 6 months ago I discovered problems with carrying it on my shoulder and decided to go to a wheeled backpack so I could either put it on my back or wheel it through airports. After doing a fair amount of research and comparisons at brick and mortar stores, I ran across this on Overstock. It seemed to be perfect for my needs, and so far it is. It has plenty of room in a padded pocket for the laptop and also for all the ancillary things I tend to carry with me on trips. The laptop is easy to remove for security inspections and it's also easy to take things out of the backpack and still keep them reasonably well organized. The telescoping handle is very well designed and it wheels easily. I have not yet really tried using it as a backpack in airports, but that is likely the next "experiment" to see how comfortable it is. It appears to be quite rugged and the pockets are convenient. Frankly, I'm glad I bought it.Read More
I purchased this bag because I needed a computer/book bag to carry back and forth to work every day.I was somewhat disappointed with this bag because I didn't have as much room in it as I thought I would with the pc and my belongings. The picture made the bag look much deeper than it actually it.With the pc in place and the handle, you don't have much flexiability . Other than that, It's ok. It serves the purpose for the pc at least. The wheels are quiet and the handle is long enough for me. I'm 5'8 and need a longer handle. I've only had it for a month so I have not gotten much wear out of it yet.Read More
I bought this bag for a trip overseas, but now I use it daily for bringing my 15" Mac Book Pro back and forth to work.The handle and zippers all work great. I often switch between backpack mode and rolley-bag mode, and this works great. The straps unclip and stow-away easily and there's a nice cover that covers the wheels and bottom of the bag when you use it as a backpack.The entire bag is lightweight yet sturdy.Read More

This bag would not hold a 17 inch laptop in the laptop compartment.
Not only fits a 17 inch laptop. I used this backpack to covering the World Cup Soccer in 2010 and everything I need fits in it. Actually I add more devices like my laptop, the IPad and my new Google Chrome with chargers, cables and documents. I am very happy with your product guys!

The product weighs 10 pounds.
What are the external dimensions? If it is standing on the floor, how high is the back of the frame at the handle when the handle is stowed (in down position)? For train commuter,i.e., will it fit under the seat.
The external dimensions of this item are 19 inches high by 13.5 inches wide by eight inches deep. Whether the backpack will fit under the seat on a train depends on the space available beneath the seat.
