Targus Drifter II Laptop Backpack is rated 3.60 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 17" Drifter II The backpack is fantastic for traveling because it can fit so much stuff. If wanting to use the bag for airplane travel, it is a little big to fit under the seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like everything but the zippers. I bought this backpack just over 2 years ago and really liked it. But now the zipper on the laptop area isn't holding up. I'll be walking and and it just rips open. After a couple tries it zips back together, but now I don't trust putting anything in that compartment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Backpack It is perfect for school holding laptop and many other items nicely organized. My 14 year old son loves it. This is the second one purchased, same model/style and color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enlarging opening of the small bag Impressive backpack, I hope Targus will redo the small bag, or, is my hand too big... Well, whatever it may be, in the meantime I'll give them only 4 stars, once they improve this product they will have 5 stars of excellence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Immortal Laptop Bag I've owned a Drifter Laptop Bag for the last 13 years; it's traveled over three continents with me through tens of thousands of miles on the road and on a plane. It truly lives up to its name; I only purchased a second one so that my child can have the same laptop protection as I have, and I'm almost positive I will hand my original down to one of my future grandkids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a man's bag... If you're a man, you want this bag. Thing will probably outlast me. I didn't realize Targus has such cool stuff, I'll be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Padded Backpack - Awesome Protection with Lots of Storage Very Durable and Lasts We have bought this same backpack for years (about 7 years and probably over 50+ of these exact same ones) from Dell for our company. Even with laptops screen sizes getting smaller we still get the model. With all of these bought we are still using the same ones. I have maybe once replaced out this backpack. I've had my same one for around 7 years+. Quality, Durable and Last. There is SO MUCH storage places. Everything you need to take with you will fit as well. Excellent padding on the back so it is Not uncomfortable when carrying. Awesome Protection! Absolutely Love Them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad straps Spent lots of time looking for the right bag. In less than a month the straps ripped. I do not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Received a defective bag - Stay away! I bought this bag 3 months ago. After 2 weeks of use, the straps started to tear. I was willing to compromise but it just kept on tearing. I contacted the Targus costumers service, and they offered to examine the product and send a replacement *only if* it is a production defect - That's fine. The representative send me the details on how to conduct the claim: I will have to send the bag to them, pay for the delivery (almost half of the bag's price, wait about 4 weeks for them to examine it and decide whether I should get a replacement or not. I will take a long brake until purchasing Targus products again. Stay away of this product as well - it is not as comfortable and diverse as it looks in the images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laptop backpack. My son had this backpack and the straps started to fray. He liked it so much that he wanted another one. So I bought it as a Christmas present for him.
