Rated 5 out of 5 byMichelle S. from Highly durable; Great for travel, school, and gaming equipmentI bought this with my Dell XPS 17 back in September 2011 and I've used it consistently for all four years of college for my heavy books, plus my XPS which has an extra battery (heavier than standard). I've also traveled a lot between Chicago to Portland, OR to Las Vegas to Honolulu numerous times and this backpack has carried my items to the point of back breaking without getting any outer tears. Even the bottom, though scuffed from heavy use, is in otherwise perfect condition. I have also carried the usual gaming peripherals (mouse, keyboard, external hard drive, headphones, etc) when needed (though I have since bought a separate bag for these). All the zippers are still intact, even zipping over my Razer Anansi (~20in wide) in the center pouch impressed me while travelling. Sadly, this did compromise the interior lining between the front and middle pocket and it has torn slightly, but only after 5 years of having this backpack. I am only recently looking for a new backpack because I've had this one for so long and will retire this one for hiking purposes. Living in Oregon with the rain, my items never got wet, though the outer material of the backpack would take a while to dry.Pros; holds a lot, insanely durable, laptop divider is highly convenient, multiple lifestyle uses, seemingly water resistantCons; n/a. literally none.

Rated 5 out of 5 bykul2bme from Very nice but missing one thingIf I could I would rate this with 4.9 stars. This overall is a very nice backpack for my laptop. It has plenty of storage for all my stuff - mouse, pens, adapters, notepads, etc. It fits great over both or just one shoulder(old school way to carry with good padding and non-slip surface inside the shoulder strap. The padding around the laptop storage is adequate with one exception. I feel it does not have enough padding on the bottom side towards the bottom of the pack for when you set the pack down. This is where most of your day to day impact to the laptop will occur and I think it should have more padding in this area to protect the laptop. This is the only reason I did not give the 5th star but it is really close to excellent otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 byVerified Buyer from would have given it a 5 star rating ...The sole reason for a 4 score is this bag has "NO" neon colors. Although boring in black its functionality is impeccable. Easy accessed through airport check, multiple compartments easily store all daily items for school/career. It looks good and is durable. Luv this bag, well priced, highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 byZMan from Tested out a few bags and this came out on topFor our company, this bag made the cut from other various nylon laptop backpacks ranging from $50-$100 in value. Targeted for the daily commuter, Our IT team had a hands on sampling of various bags, and the function, size, and overall weight worked out to use for the time being.

Rated 5 out of 5 byTerry68 from Minor Flawthe backpack is great in that it fist my 17.3" laptop and has lots of pockets for other items. My only complaint is that it doesn't stand up on its own. either empty or with the laptop in it, the silly things falls over.
