    This backpack is awesome. Very happy with my purchase. I use this when travelling for work so I typically have my laptop, a notebook or two and all of my accessories/peripherals I need. Highly recommend this to any travelers that need something for similar situations.

    Update: 7/26/2013 – My swissgear backpack spontaneously combusted yesterday! Unbelievable, I can no longer recommend this backpack as there’s no telling when it may burst into flames!

    Kidding, of course. Since my last update I’ve changed jobs, but this backpack is still getting just as much, if not more, use. I use it daily to and fro the office and it’s holding up absolutely fine. It has shown no significant signs of wear. Still love it!

    Update 11/13/2014 – Still putting this backpack to use on the daily. It’s still in perfect condition. No loose threads, all materials have held up incredibly well. If and when this one starts to fall apart I’ll have no issues buying the same bag, but at this rate it looks like it’s going to be years down the road before that happens.

    Update 1/19/2015 – This backpack is $40 today. Ordering another one just to have on hand.

    Update 10/16/2015 – Coming to the realization that I should not have wasted $40 and bought an extra one of these to have on hand. The one I have isn’t showing any signs of deterioration. I’ll probably end up giving the extra one I bought to someone as a gift. Still going strong!

    I bought this backpack for school. After an exhaustive search online, in local stores and across campus, I can definitively say that this is hands down the best laptop backpack you can buy!

    Pros:
    1. Tons of space and usable compartments:
    – 1 padded laptop compartment
    – 1 thin compartment that can be used for papers and folders
    – 1 main compartment that contains vertical dividers to keep things organized, a smaller interior mesh pocket, and an ipod/cell phone pouch that leads to a slit in the top of the backpack for a headphone cord
    – 1 decent sized pocket on each side (I use 1 for my laptop charger and accessories)
    – 2 stretchy water bottle pockets big enough for the big 1 liter bottles (good for umbrella too)
    – 1 small pocket on the top front
    – 1 pocket on the bottom front that contains a bunch of small organizer pockets found in every backpack that nobody ever uses
    2. Comfort: padded, shock absorbing arm pads, padded back, and a comfortable handle on top.
    3. Appearance: In my opinion, this is one of the best looking backpacks out there, but I can’t argue with taste so if you have one of those ugly backpacks, that’s fine with me.
    4. Price: Phenomenal deal! ($50 when I purchased it) Would have gladly spent more (don’t tell amazon)

    Cons: (there really are none… I’m nitpicking here)
    1. The opening for the laptop is on the side (not the top) which makes it a little awkward to get in and out. Not a big deal though.
    2. I would have liked a little more padding underneath the laptop. The amount of padding is pretty similar to most other laptop cases though. You just need to be careful about setting it down to hard.
    3. The size was perfect for my 15.6 widescreen. I haven’t tried a 17″, but I’m guessing it would be too big (if you could get it to fit inside, it would be VERY tight)
