    I ordered this backpack specifically for a two week trip to Europe and upon arrival it was everything I wanted. A backpack small enough as a carry-on and large enough to fit necessary electronics and miscellaneous items. By this I mean lots of pockets, and this backpack has lots and lots of pockets. There’s 16 pockets total, the main zip pocket has a padded sleeve for a laptop, small mp3 pouch, slip for a tablet/netbook, and extra space for misc. items. There’s two side zip pocket, a sunglasses pocket, followed by three other zip pockets. The main bottom zip pocket has another zip pocket inside as well as six other pockets and a key chain hook. I was able to carry my laptop, kindle, camera, sunglasses, chargers, power adapters, usb cables, batteries, memory cards, etc. The backpack’s shoulder strap was also thickly padded which didn’t hurt my shoulders after extended use.

    Unfortunately, there’s one major flaw to the backpack and I had to find out the hard way. The extra sleeve to put your tablet/netbook (in my case my Kindle) in is Not Padded! I was carrying the backpack around in London for a week when I pulled out my kindle and found it to be broken. Apparently, sometime within the day I had put pressure to my backpack causing my kindle’s screen to break, which I had no idea how it happened considering how I didn’t do anything out of the ordinary. I was completely shocked and disappointed and miserable half the time without my kindle. This shouldn’t have happened at all considering how the rest of the backpack was well thought out. I can’t even imagine how someone would feel if their Ipad/Transformers/Kindle Fire were to break like my Kindle. This is not to say that the sleeve won’t work, you just need to be very very careful and mindful of the backpack. For this alone I give the backpack 3 stars, but if you’re a very careful person or won’t use the tablet/netbook sleeve at all, then this backpack is great!

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    Targus makes great products, but this backpack is the ultimate in laptop/media carrying and storage. First it is completely comfortable with adjustable shoulder straps and a stiff cushioned back for comfort. Pockets? There are pockets galore! There is one on each side, four in the front (one of which has seven internal pockets with one being zippered and one for your memory card). Think about small electronics, cards, wallets, glasses, etc. – anything small you need immediately can fit in here.

    The inside can easily fit a thick 16″ laptop (even in its carrying case) along with two other deep pockets for other valuables. On top of all that, you can place your iPod/iPhone in a pocket at the inside top of the backpack and plug it into a readily supplied wire that exits out the right shoulder pack strap. That’s right; you just plug your ear buds into the shoulder strap! The other shoulder strap has a stretchable strap for your eyeglass/sunglasses. There are air vents throughout for good circulation.

    The entire pack is made of black polyester and the zippers are tough plastic that won’t bind or catch. This is perfect for the campus, work or travel (it will easily fit in an overhead compartment or under your seat). The pack sits upright to insure no damage to anything inside and the feel is light and comfy. Targus made a great pack this time and the price is perfect!
