"I really liked this backpack when I bought it in 2014. But I find that it has frayed and torn at a seam. Disappointing for a brand with a name."

"This bag has a lot of space and many pockets to organize whatever you need to carry. It fits my 15 inch laptop comfortably and safely in its own padded compartment. The straps are padded and the back of the pack has a firm back so it rests comfortably up against your back and holds its shape without sagging. I bought this to replace a Dell XPS backpack that refused to stand up when set down and this one does not disappoint me in that feature. The carrying handle is sturdy and I've packed this bag to overflowing and it still maintains its shape and is comfortable to carry. This is my second Samsonite backpack and like the first one, this backpack is perfect for daily toting of items! I highly recommend it for both comfort and practicality of carrying all my gadgets from laptop to portable drives to camera gear."

"I've used this bag for about six months, typically for carrying books and my laptop. I've also used it for traveling on weekends or for a few weeks. I like the laptop pocket, and the cushioning on the straps and back panel make it really comfortable. When needed, I've been able to cram a whole lot into it, particularly for traveling (e.g. three pairs of pants, several T-shirts, a couple sweaters, toiletries, laptop, and assorted chargers). So far I've been happy with it."

"I bought this backpack for my son, who has to carry a lot of books, binders and notebooks for school every day. We've gone through a lot of the Walmart cheapie backpacks, and usually the zipper breaks or the seams give out. Plus it's hard to find one that's big enough to hold everything. So far we are really happy with the Samsonite Tectonic bag - it's extra large, has a substantial zipper, and the seams seem to be sturdy. The shoulder straps are comfortably padded and angled, and the bottom is reinforced."

"Backpack is a little wide for my shoulders (I'm 5ft2in), but it has such great organization that I'm keeping it. Plus the look is clean and professional. I'll also be using the bag for travel and am sure it will meet my needs. So far, a great product."

"This is the third Samsonite laptop notebook I've bought over several years in similar versions. Each one has been different in terms of dividers and pockets. This one is the best of all. The sections are better organized. For example, the computer notebook pocket is well-padded and independent of the other sections, which makes it easier access the notebook for inspection at airport security. It's also large enough to be a second carry-on bag without counting as one which essentially gives me a two-carry-on bag allowance since laptop bags are not counted as an additional carry-on piece. I often don't even place a computer inside and use it strictly as a piece of luggage. It's strongly constructed, comfortable to carry and a true bargain."

"did alot of research and found this backpack. on paper, met my needs and when it arrived i was more than pleased with the purchase. HOWEVER, after barely a week of regular/everyday commuter use, the inside pockets began to rip and fray. i am returning this item and buying another/different backpack. i was very disappointed in samsonite and can only say that ONLY if you plan on very light use, do not buy this backpack"

"The backpack is good but it is incorrectly branded as a large backpack. It is a medium sized backpack, I was looking for a backpack for business travel which could accommodate a laptop, few files, as well as some clothes. This backpack is a little small to hold all these comfortably."

"I looked at a lot of backpacks before I purchased this one. I needed a separate compartment for my lap top. I also needed a built in organizer. I wanted a high quality backpack that would last for more than a year of college. I am very happy with the Samsonite Tectonic Large backpack.I don't believe I can get a higher quality backpack for the price. I love the front sunglasses pocket. I wear sunglasses most of the time and it's a great place to stash them in class."

"Just enough protection for my laptop with tons of extra storage for the ac adapter, papers, headphones, pens, and nearly anything else you would need to bring with you. The backpack feels good when around one shoulder or both and feels like it's made of quality materials. If I had to do it over I would buy this again!"
