We purchased a large number of backpacks for a local homeless support center. Had to be roomy, dark in color, lots of zippered options, and other needs. These fit the bill, are comfortable to wear and not as heavy as I had feared. We tested them out and their new owners seem pleased. The support center staff is very happy.
Great alternative for a purse when you're out for the day shopping, hiking or urban exploring. Holds all the "essentials". Durable material. Well made. Have not used it to tote around a laptop. Very good value.
Swiss Gear usually puts out a good product. I thought I was getting a bargain for this bag. Buyers beware. no more cheaply priced bags for me. this bag would not would not fit my 17" HP Envy DV7. The DV7 is not an unusually large laptop for a 17". I would say its about standard. The bag itself has zero padding for your laptop save for your back strapping. The sleeve that your laptop fits into has no padding on the bottom of the pack not any on the sleeve itself. The sleeve will only cover half of the laptop when you manage to force it into the pack. you are unable to zip the pack shut if you manage to get it into the pack. I would have said it would have only protected half of the laptop, but using the term protection would have been misleading much like the description of this pack.
I will never buy another laptop bag from Swiss gear nor Overstock. My time and money has been wasted due to improper and misleading description. DO Not buy this for any 17" lap top. it will not fit.
How accurate was the sizing? No! Misleading description.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. the quality was bad.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes,but plastic over the logos were sown into the pack... had to dig out the plastic wrapping.
The height is noted as 17", but keep in mind that the top of the bag is more curved than the photo appears. I have a 15.5" screen laptop that I was expecting to fit in this bag, but unfortunately it did not. I decided to go with a different Wenger bag - the Granite - which has a padded compartment and more generous head room in the main compartment. My laptop fits in the Granite as if it was made to, so I would advise it as a laptop bad for a screen size 15.6" and under.
The Bungee was a decent bag, and I believe it would do fine for normal book use.
How accurate was the sizing? smaller than expected
Please tell us about the quality of the product. quality as expected
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes

What are the pockets lined with? Many backpacks today are lined with a sort of rubbery/plasticky black material that begins to crack and disintegrate after about a year, and at that point it starts to leave annoying black "crumbs" all over my stuff.tilthead on May 15, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
