"I like this backpack very much. It has lots of pockets and connectors for organizing things: documents, books, lunch, apparatus, umbrellas,... The cloth and zippers feel heavy duty. The shoulder straps are very comfortable. My large laptop fits easily inside the pack with no struggle and the pack looks medium size. I was afraid that it would not fit, but the EBags website said it would fit and it did. I have used roller bags to go to work, but don't like the added weight when carrying the roller bag up and down stairs and escalators. This backpack works best for me to commute more quickly and easily."

"I bought this bag to lug around my 17 inch laptop safely around school. This bag is perfect for that. The computer section is separate from the rest of the bag and well padded. When the bag is sitting on the ground my laptop rests on padding inside the bag, not just a single layer of fabric, as in other "laptop" bags. The bag is very sturdy and well made. I have never felt like I was over packing it. There have been times when I cart two 17 inch laptops around and the bag does fine. The various pockets are handy, the side pockets are the perfect size for laptop chargers. I took a star off because I wish that one of the large side pockets were split into two smaller pockets to accommodate more neat storage of smaller cords and chargers. The negatives to this bag are it's size. If you do not need a bag this large, opt for a smaller bag. By its self, the bag is pretty heavy. I see is weight as proof of its sturdy construction. When I bought a 17 inch computer, I understood that finding a back pack to carry it in would be hard and heavy, but I love this bag. All in all this bag is well made and perfect for what I bought it for. The bag holds a ton, is comfortable and well designed."

"I am a mom who bought this for my son, a college freshman in Engineering. He found your offer for the SwissGear pack after we had been searching independently. This arrived in time for his birthday and he has been extremely pleased with it. He has seen the same pack used by a few others on campus and this one is certainly superior to any other he has seen being used, and is packed full of great features. The quality of the zippers, straps to reduce wear on the zippers and design for accessing pockets is smart. I will recommend this pack to all our high school-senior friends. It is head and shoulders above anything else I have come across. I only wish I'd had time to watch for Christmas sale prices, but it was needed before that birthday and even before that! So glad it proved to be such a great pack."

"Very good value, the bag looks very well constructed, very roomy, while still meeting carry-on limits & fitting in overhead racks on smaller, commuter planes. Comfortable to carry, even when heavily loaded. I would like a sternum strap & may add one myself."

"My laptop Dell Inspiron 17R is unusually large and I have been searching laptop bags for a long time now. Most of the bags online have dimensions which seem to fit a large laptop but practically they don't. This bag was a little out of my budget but it had good ratings and I decided to take the chance. I am happy to have found a bag which fits my laptop plus something which I can take to school everyday, with ample space and good organization."

"I bought this computer backpack for my husband to transport his laptop to and from work. It is really well made and we both loved the organizational design. Lots of pockets that are actually useful. We recently took a trip to South Africa and brought my laptop (for my photography) and found this backpack to be indispensable. We carried all our electronics in it along with my laptop. It's designed to unzip all the way around in the middle and open flat displaying the laptop through a window. This became one of our favorite features! We traveled through several airports, translated lots of security checkpoints, and this feature worked like a charm. For the whole trip, I believe we only had to take the laptop out of the bag once! That made getting through security so much easier. I'm so glad we got this backpack! I definitely recommend it for just the wonderful organizational design and quality build, but also highly recommended for travel as well."

"Awesome backpack! Fits my big 17" laptop with room to spare. I pack my laptop with cables, lunch cooler, a jacket, and put a 32oz water bottle on one side and my gun on the other side. Plenty of room and the laptop compartment has a velcro adjustable top pad for whatever height your laptop is. Also i love the zippered pockets above the water bottle pouch, very handy. The zippers and material are very durable, will last a long time. Its a heavy backpack but thats because its heavy duty. You will not be disappointed with this bag."

"I bought this laptop to hold my husband's Dell Inspiron 7720. It fits perfectly which is great so now when we travel he can bring his laptop and I don't have to share mine! He also uses it as an overnight bag for his outings with the boys and the bag has taken a beating, and been through god only knows on those outings."

"I bought this as a gift for my husband who was resistent to changing his old, torn briefcase for anything else. I researched and found this on ebags-it had many pockets, areas, etc. which would work as a good substitute.He LOVES it!!!"
