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 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 Great Professional Backpack for Airport Traveling This is the best backpack I have ever owned. It is the only backpack that has the zippered compartment at the back of the backpack under the straps that is perfect for putting your wallet, keys, phone, etc when you are going thru airport security. The backpack has a nice selection of compartments. Well-made and TARGUS has the best warranty and the easiest customer service of any company, better than REI. I wished that a larger size was sold, say 60-65 L. The current size of 42L is about the largest size of any backpack sold, today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds everything and then some!! It fits the laptop, headphones, and mouse with ease with plenty of room for more. It's a heavy laptop and the bag helps to distribute the weight nicely. The backpack seems very sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zippers are horrible. Zippers get stuck & split right from the first use. Does not have luggage/trolley sleeve to attach to rolling luggage handle. Number of and location of pockets are great though.

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 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 loved it. The backpack is a solid choice for those seeking durability and organization. Its quality construction ensures it can handle daily wear and tear effortlessly. What really impressed me were the numerous pockets—perfect for keeping everything neatly organized. Admittedly, it leans towards the heavier side, yet surprisingly, it remains comfortable even when fully loaded. Overall, it's a reliable companion for anyone needing a sturdy and well-organized backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad handle I bought this bag July 25, 2023 and the plastic handle is already splitting apart. Also, I'm noticing that a couple of stitches are starting to come apart. I have owned a few Swiss gear laptops backpacks for many years and it took more than 3 years before the handle showed signs of wear. I do love all of the storage on this backpack; but, not the handle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drifter II laptop backpack quality Great bag with many pockets. Like the color. Wish you had more color options and like some other reviews, I am concerned that the bag won't do well with the weight of my laptop and such. Otherwise, a wonderful bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worse than my old one I ordered a new one to replace the one I had for several years. It served me extremely well, but one of the most frequently-used zippers became problematic. I couldn't find any other backpacks with such good organization with pockets for both laptops and tablets, so I figured I might as well get what I knew I liked. Unfortunately, my newer backpack was not up to the same standards (by a long shot). It's been a few weeks, and two zippers are already inconsistent, plus an inside pocket has torn. It's not completely useless, but it's nowhere near as easy to rely on as my old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hopes dashed, a failed bag. In look8ng for a bag, I initially went to a competitor. I settled on this bag because of the size and description. When it was back in stock I received a notice that and decided to try it. I've never owbed on of their bags before and was curious. The bag has two major issues. 1. If items are left in the front pocket and you remove your computer from the back pocket the bag becomes front heavy abd tips forward. This seems to be an issue with the design since my previous bag did not. 2. Every bag I have ever owned sits well on my shoulder, using a single strap, without wanting to slide off. This bag requires constant repositioning, or the 2nd strap, to prevent it from sliding off your shoulder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad zipper stitching I purchased this bag a week prior to my scheduled travels. Just alone actually loading the bag as my carry on. Granted I did inspect the bag and the zippers prior to my purchase, all seemed well. I did not overload my bag by no means. But yet the stitching for the outside top pocket had already began to fail me.

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 Lasted 7 years, handled and protected tools well! I have had this backpack for 7 years and it has finally had it. The zippers don't close and the top has ripped open. Overall, this backpack has been rugged and has seen extensive use. I have not had another laptop backpack that has lasted as long as this one.

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 Did not hold up well My husband purchased the Drifter II for me to use for my real estate business. Love all the separate pockets, but not very durable. Within 6 months of purchase, the backpack separated from the laptop pouch zipper for approximately 8 inches. Very disappointed because I like all the pockets, makes it easy for me to organize my files, laptop and personal items. If this was made in leather, would be much more durable.
