    • Great backpack

      I am a teacher and have been using this backpack for about a month now. I replaced a leather satchel that I had for 16 years that finally needed to be "retired", and a separate computer bag. This backpack is extra roomy and allows me to carry both comfortably. In fact, I can see that all the pockets could be a problem in that you could very easily overload the backpack and make it very heavy to carry. For a teacher, however, it's perfect for the computer and accessories, pens and pencils, and the papers and books required of the profession. On the somewhat negative side, it has taken me a while to get used to the side zippered laptop section. Now that I'm used to it, it's not so bad, but if I were be designing the bag for myself, I would put dual zippers on that pouch like the others. Another personal (and somewhat humorous) negative is that because of my age (I'm 62), I don't know what all the things are for on the backpack. There was no instruction manual to explain things like the twin side straps that link to each other, but don't go any where. Or the grey loop things on the tops of the carry straps that have no explanation. There are also three sewn loops down the front of the backpack that I can't figure out, and a small loop at the top of the backpack, beneath the carry handle that I don't know its function. Wenger Swiss Gear WAS nice enough to put a small glasses icon on a clip on the strap and a headset icon on a small pouch that allows someone who walks around with an mp3 player to be able to gain access to a unit carried inside the bag. Overall, I think this is a very well constructed bag that is a great value. I would definitely recommend the bag, and any negatives I have found (and listed) are just personal issues that I have and NOT a result of poor design or quality.

    • Excellent Backpack

      I owned a similar backpack from Swiss Gear and it lasted through 7 years of not so gentle treatment. The zippers finally wore out and it was time for a new one. I found that this model has an even better configuration of compartments and is built with the same quality I have come to expect from Swiss Gear. I would recommend this pack to anyone.

    • Great value and meets all my needs

      I had to replace a backpack that was stolen in Paris. My previous one had the right number of pockets that were perfectly located, and all I had to do was grab it and take off. I ended up buying 5 backpacks before I settled on this one. Recently, I was even able to use the ScanSmart feature at the airport, and it was so nice not having to take out my laptop and stuff it back in while trying to get through the security line. This backpack is very well-constructed and the zippers glide easily on their tracks. I love Swiss Gear's quality and I'm hoping this backpack lasts as long as my previous one.

    • lots of nooks and crannies

      Using it heavily for 2 months now - so can't say how long it will last - but as it was moderately priced - I am very pleased with it and it had more nooks than I thought - which is great for keeping things organized. Also - nice coloring. sharp black and true red.

    • Top quality laptop backpack

      Wenger does not make junk. I own both a regular laptop bag and now this backpack, and both are made of quality materials and workmanship. The big has a lot of padding for the laptop enclosure on both sides. Lot's of well placed pockets and this backpack is stellar. I purchased it to carry my laptop and other work related material on my motorcycle, but it is utilitarian enough to be used for day hikes or overall school pack as well.

    • One of the best out there

      Very good backpack. Fits my 15.6 inch Dell laptop. I have a 9 cell battery on it so its quite bulky too. This seems to fit seamlessly into the bag. Doesn't feel congested at all. Plenty of room for everything else. A couple of books, files, stationery and of course all the junk we like to carry around. Its definitely not the cheapest bag out there, but it's definitely worth the money.

    • Why did you choose this product?

      • Good reviews

    • Thinking of purchasing, where would it be shipped from & what would be the price & time to deliver to Singapore?

      • Hi jerrycan, there are a few different options to chose when and how long delivery will take. Please select the flag in the top right corner and select Singapore, then proceed as if you were going to purchase it and you can see what the costs will be. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.

    • Will this backpack fit my gaming laptop (ASUS G750) which one of the largest available in the market. It has 17.3" screen and dimensions are as follows Length = 16.1" Width = 13.1" Height/Thickness = 2.5" Diagonal Length = 20"

      • Hello, rahuljainbangalore. Unfortunately, this bag only fits laptops up to 17 inches in diagonal length, so yours would probably be too large. Thank you for shopping with us, and have a great day.

    • Does this bag have padding at the base?

      • Hello jacobj, The backpack is well padded, the laptop compartment has extra padding at the bottom to protect your laptop when you sit it down. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • Is this backpack PVC-free? Water resistant? To what extent is it eco-friendly?

      • The back pack is PVC free and is made of 100% polyester. The back pack is not water proof so we suggest a water proof pack liner and as far as eco-friendly, that is a pretty broad term when it comes to making things today that are eco-friendly or organic or natural. The pack is made of a man made material and does not have any chemical retardants on it or any funky dies or such and so it would be considered an eco-friendly pack by our standards. We hope that was what you were looking for. Thanks for shopping Overstock.com

    • does it have room for a text book and a binder after the laptop is in the bag?

      • Great purchase. I have room for my textbooks (3 of them 400+ pages),4 binders, kindle fire, laptop, tablet, PSP, and annual planner.

    • dose this have a 3.5mm headset jack on the strap?

      • Hello techman1234, This does not have a headset jack in the shoulder straps. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • Can I carry my 15" laptop computer and an ipad in this case?

      • Thank you for contacting us jwkb. Yes this will fit laptops up to 17 inches. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

      • Yes you can although the tablet will not be protected by padding.
