"I checked out a lot of packs before selecting the Swerve, and I'm very happy with it. I take long flights very often and wanted a pack with good organization that would fit under an airline seat but still carry my laptop, power cord, a change of clothes, cell phones, camera, book, water bottle, and other miscellaneous stuff. The Swerve does this very nicely and looks good doing it. Very comfortable shoulder straps (I usually use one strap at a time, like a sling).
Two features I especially like: 1) the rear zipper is great for airport security... just unzip it and your laptop is easily extracted from its padded sleeve (and just as easily replaced) without affecting your clothes or other stuff; 2) it has a small top pocket that's great for quick access to small items as well as internal organizing pockets that are built high up in the pack. This helps reduce a universal problem with packs: your stuff tends to settle in the bottom of every compartment, making it harder to get to and making the pack bulge at the bottom while being empty up top. The more even top-to-bottom distribution in the Swerve is what keeps it thin enough to fit under an airline seat even when fully loaded. Other manufacturers should take note and start designing their pack compartments this way.
At this price you're not going to get Tumi or Victorinox build quailty and durability, but it's certainly adequate for my needs. If you beat a pack up every day, this one might not last more than a year. But on the trips I've taken with the Swerve, it hasn't given me even the slightest problem."

"very nice bag with lots of pockets and organization. I liked the notebook sleeve as it is well-designed... with side velcro straps to adjust to your laptop's size (max width: 12" wide), if your computer is longer than 14.5" there will be approx 2" outside of the sleeve protection... however, the strap to keep the computer secure can be adjusted. It is perfect for an average-sized body frame person."
