Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag while it lastedI've had this bag for a long time, probably about 10 years or more. It has been my favorite bag mostly because it is so large and I love the material and the way that my laptop, tablet, and other items are so easy to put in and to remove. The way this bag feels against my back and the nice, sturdy shoulder straps have made it great to wear for long walks while traveling all over the place, including several trips to Russia and other parts of Europe while carrying laptop, cameras, tablet, and various other items. Sadly, the interior pockets have started to rip loose at the stitch points, so its days are likely numbered. Since I can't locate a sales receipt after all this time, I'll just have to eat the cost, I guess. No warranty without a sales receipt.I'm a little disappointed to read reviews that say that the handle has been changed. I like the nice, sturdy handle that's on my version of the pack. I also wish that they'd have integrated a couple of things by now - (1) a rear zip pocket to put cash, passport, wallet, etc., in, and a strap to allow me to place this bag securely onto the handle of my checked or carry-on bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection for laptop AND ample room for book storage.The Targus TXL-617 is a great protector for really any size laptop. I had ordered a 17" laptop size backpack because I wanted my daughter to have ample room in her backpack for all of her school sundries and her book, as well as her purse. The only problem was that her new HP netbook is barely 12", leaving MORE than ample room, to the point where her netbook was being secured very loosely in the backpack. So I had to return it in lieu of a smaller backpack. But Targus's Customer Service was top-notch, and their Return Process was very easy, very reliable, and extremely expedient. For my own next laptop backpack, I would definitely be willing to go with a Targus. Thank You, Travis Young

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buyWe bought this to replace my husbands existing Targus Laptop bag. He says it's so similar to his old one that he knows exactly where things are without thinking about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this productI really love this bag, and would have rated it 5 stars, if one of the zippers hadn't broken after a weeks worth of use. I will be send the bag back, and I am not sure if I would pick this bag again, I haven't decided yet !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 14 years, still going strong!Bought this bag 14 years ago during a deployment. Had it ever since. Been around the world a couple of times, and still looks good. I use it daily for work, with my laptop, rain gear and other small items. Had a buckle break, only because i stepped on it, replaced it and works just as good. Other than that, no issues what so ever. Not even faded due to the sun when i wear it on long motorcycle rides. I would get a new one, but have no reason to since this bag has lasted this long.
