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.

Bought for my son for Christmas last year. Six months later the zipper broke. Overstock would not replace. Back to LLBEAN that stands behind what they sell ~ forever. This was not a cheap purchase. Great looking and sturdy the six months the zipper worked. I guess I should read return policies better.
Like the back pack but I have had one better for storage but it only last two years (another brand) so I will try this one. Would have like to see a padded handle at the top and then a pocket in side with a flap in the first compartment for my passport I only had it a week but I do like it about 90% satisfaction.
Ordered this bag for a business trip to Europe. Was disappointed that the laptop "scan" feature couldn't be utilized in all countries, but it was extremely convenient in the US. Regardless, it was easy to remove and replace the laptop quickly.
Since my 11 yrs old goes thru 3-4 book bags a year, I wanted to invest in something more durable, and long lasting. This bag looks good, but not for a six grader. It has only one compartment for books, which is fairly small if you have to fit 2-3 books, and a couple of note books, and the 2nd compartment is almost useless... the only thing you can fit in, is a laptop. It looks big, but not so... It does have lots of small pockets tho, therefore it's a good organizer, but that's about it.
This is the finest backpack I HAVE SEEN! My 7.5 inch laptop fits like a glove and is well protected. They even gave me a spot for my tablet . I have plenty of room for all the extras ie: power cords, mouse manuals, and lots more. THIS IS A MUST BUY! Terry
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
