  • Great except...
    Verified Purchase

    I travel a lot and this is perfect. Just make sure laptop is less than 15.6" mine fits but pretty tight. I would've put pockets on the side. But overall excellent!

  • Not big enough for 17" laptop
    Verified Purchase

    Don't bother trying this item to see if your 17" laptop fits. It won't. Too bad the description is incorrect. It could save folks lots of time and effort. The search is still on.

    I got this backpack to transport my books and laptop for my graduate degree program. It's great for hauling my heavy gear all over campus without straining my back. It comfortably stores my laptop and keeps it separated from my textbooks so I can access it quickly. The three storage compartments store my books, snacks, and personal items that I use throughout the day. There's even a ring that I can hook my keys onto so I don't have to search around for them when I need them. My favorite feature is the handle, which expands and retracts easily & quickly and is strong and sturdy. The wheels roll smoothly over carpeting, asphalt, and even the sidewalk as I walk around campus. There's also a thick, reinforced strap on the top of the bag that I can just grab when I need to lift it up over a curb or some steps. And it even converts to a backpack with padded, adjustable straps. I don't often wear it on my back because the wheels are so convenient, but it works great for when it's raining and I want the pack to stay under my umbrella so my computer won't get wet. When you're not using the straps they zip into their own compartment so they don't get in the way. I love this backpack, and I'm really glad I bought it. It's perfect for any student who's got a lot to carry.

  • Great backpack.
    Verified Purchase

    My backpack was delivered within 3 or 4 days of purchase. The backpack was everything I was hoping for. I am currently a nursing student who was in desperate need for a good, sturdy rolling backpack to carry all of my textbooks. The side laptop compartment has been handy. I don't bring my laptop to class, but I'll use the compartment to store a binder or a textbook when I need to. Overall, my back is thankful for the purchase. One note: the beige color turned out to be a darker khaki color on the design which is fine because the darker color doesn't get soiled as easily. Great purchase.

  • Perfect
    Verified Purchase

    The size and layout of this bag has proved efficient and sturdy. I can fit multiple sized and shaped items (books, binders, etc). The laptop compartment is well padded while not taking away much storage space within the backpack. The wheels are well made and set far enough apart to keep the bag from tipping to the side when rolling over uneven ground. This item also arrived quickly and safely. I would purchase another if I had reason.

  • overall it is a good bag
    Verified Purchase

    The bag is constructed well and it does fit a large laptop. However, after the laptop is inserted there is not much room for books, binders, or other various supplies. Good for middle school, highschool, or overnight, but not great for college loads.

    Verified Purchase

    The worst! Be warned and walk away now! The whole handle fell apart after two months. I purchased 4 Calpak rolling backpacks, 2 of the 4 were defective and this one broke. I waiting for the 4th to break. If I could I would give it ZERO stars.
