I use this to carry my laptop to work everyday on my motorcycle. Backpack is very comfortable and lightweight. The way the backpack opens makes it impossible for stuff to fly out when riding down the highway....more info
- 17" Laptop Backpack
Very happy with this backpack. Fits my 17" Dell laptop and the components that I need. Only downside is that there's not a ton of room for other stuff if the laptop is already in it, but that's somewhat expected as the laptop is big in itself....more info
- Excellent backpack for up to 17" screen laptops! Best I've seen around so far...
Excellent construction, nice looks, well-designed. It even holds my Sony 18.4" VAIO AW but it requires some strain to get the zippers to close so I wouldn't recommend it to carry computers larger than 17" screen size. It'll surely hold any other laptop quite well.
The security feature of the zippers placed under the shoulder straps towards your back will prevent anyone from stealing anything while you're in a crowded place like a subway train. The case includes two well-sized zippered removable pouches for a power supply and other accessories, four small internal compartments (three stretch neoprene with velcro fasteners and one mesh), and a separate compartment for an MP3 player or whatever with a slit opening for your headphones cable.
One small concern is that the computer compartment is located on the end that faces the wearer, hence your back is always pressing against the computer. Placing the computer with the bottom end (instead of the screen) facing your back will remove the strain from the screen, but depending on how much additional stuff you carry, the rest of the contents will be pressing against the screen, so...
If you're a professional who wants to be able to carry your computer without the usual fuss of handling a shoulder strap to keep it from slipping, or if (like me) you usually carry your computer everywhere and want to be able to move your arms and hands freely, this bag's for you.
If you're a student who --in addition to your computer-- needs to carry a lot of books, consider something else before you make your purchase as this backpack might not be the most spacious for your needs....more info
- Awesome backpack!
I was using a targus messenger bag before this one..my lappy is a 17" so its hard to find a decent backpack under a $100 bucks to buy. This one does definitely not dissapoint! I am a college student with a 17" hp lappy and this backpack suits all my needs!! People complained about having little amounts of room, but the insert on the inside comes out so that you can have more room for books or supplies. My lappy is anything less of my eternal life here at school, so when I found out what a secure backpack this was...god was i happy. I go to school in boston and this is perfect when you're in the city or on the T. Its also very comfy and has tons of padding so you know nothing is flying around in ur pack when you walk. Also, i enjoy the mp3 pocket, convienent and nifty. There is a cup holder thing for the outside too, it just zips away in a pocket when not in use..for those who like to bring water to class like i do. I am a very short chick *5 feet tall* and its not overbearing at all.
Overall, this pack gets an A++ from me...its totally awesome!!...more info
- BIG bag
This is a very well-put-together bag. As other reviewers have said, though, there's not a lot of room for contents other than a laptop and the power brick and cords. I have a laptop with an 18.4" screen, and it fits--very snugly, but I can close it up. There is room for a folder or two, but if you need to carry books AND a computer, this isn't the bag you want.
The bag is extremely secure and there's even a little pocket for your iPod and a slit for the earphones. The straps are wide and very comfortable--it really feels very light and distributes the weight evenly. All in all, a great bag....more info
- Like It A lot BUT...
This a great computer backpack if all you want to carry is your computer and its accessories and maybe a few folders. For that I love it. However, my 17" Gateway 7811FX will not fit unless I remove the battery. Drag. I am not really a shut the computer down every time person. I like to shut it and run so for me its a small drawback....more info
- Good, not great...
I bought and used this backpack for a trip to Amsterdam. I bought it mainly because of the security features, and for that it is excellent. Having the zippers inaccessible puts your mind at ease in a big crowd or on the train or tram. The major con of this pack is that the dividers don't go all the way to the bottom, all small items fall directly to the bottom and are hard to access. Overall I would recommend this pack to travelers and motorcyclists.
- Ninja Turtle Backpack
Now this backpack DOES make you look like a ninja turtle, but the backpack itself is excellent. It's roomy and easily holds a 17" laptop. As long as you have no problem with the aesthetics (my girlfriend likes it), then this is the perfect 17" laptop backpack. I've done a lot of searching, and for the price, this is a great pick up....more info
- A Great Backpack for any Notebook.
I've really enjoyed this product and it does a great job of protecting my notebooks as well. I've had notebooks ranging from 9" Sonys to 17" MacBook Pros in this puppy and they all fit snuggly. I really like the fact that most of the zippers are secured away when you are wearing the pack... perfect for those public transportation rides. The pack is also very comfortable to wear and sometimes I forget that I even have it on (when I have smaller notebooks in it of course). I also get compliments all the time about the pack from people walking around Downtown... which never hurts....more info
- Great for a student on a motorcycle or who rides the bus! Fits my Eee PC perfectly!
I am a college student and generally I ride my motorcycle to class, this pack is great because I'm confident my papers won't be flying out everywhere. When there's bad weather I ride the bus, so it's nice to have this backpack so I know nothing will be stolen out of my backpack by someone behind me.
I have my Asus Eee PC in it, which is way to small for the laptop compartment (two or three Eee PCs could fit in there!) In the middle compartment, however, there is a mesh zipper pocket that is EXACTLY the size of my Eee PC. It's perfect and snug!
I currently have three textbooks, my laptop, some lab glasses, pencils, and a reading book all in there and there's still more room.
The only downsides are that I'm a 5'4 girl and this backpack is really big and a strap goes exactly around my waist at belt height, so it's a bit awkward with my center of gravity. I don't have any problems when I'm riding but when I'm walking, I feel really top heavy.
My husband says I look like a little turtle with it on, and I have the black one! Though the black looks pretty professional, I wish it came in brighter colors so I could be more viable on my motorcycle. There are yellow reflective stripes, but making the entire thing reflective would have been even more perfect.
Overall, great backpack and exactly what I needed!
- Best Laptop/BookBag out there.
This is definitely one of the best laptop bags I have tried. I just purchased a 17.1" Gateway FX series laptop and it was hard to find a perfect bag for it. This was definitely it.
My problem with most bags out there is the excess size of the bag hanging out when the bag is empty or even partially full. This bag however fixes that problem. It keeps the bag together and up against your back. The padding on your back side makes it comfortable to walk around without a hard surface (Laptop) against your back.
One thing I would have changed on the bag is the file-like pockets inside the bag. There is no bottom to them, so if you are trying to put small items in them, they will likely find their way to the bottom of the bag. However if you are putting books or folders, then you have no problem :).
5 Stars to a great bag :)...more info
- Finally found one...
I myself have a Sony Vaio AR series laptop, 17" screen, and had the hardest time finding a backpack style bag that could hold my laptop. I had purchased other bags that said they would hold a 17" screen and ended up returning them as they could never close. After doing searching online, I found this bag on the manufacturer's website and finally found it. They even provided dimensions of the laptop compartment so I can best determine if this would work. I must say, it is a little tight of a fit, but its the best fit I've found and the bag actually can close without any issues or forcing it. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for this particular of bag that are having a hard time finding something to hold a 17" screen, especially a AR series Vaio. I use this solely for my laptop and accessories, and would be unable to judge its effectiveness for school to carry books with the laptop....more info
- A brilliant idea, but...
A colleague recommended the Mobile Edge SecurePack 17" Backpack to me to carry my new (huge) laptop, so I purchased it. I excitedly opened the box and started filling up the backpack with all the necessities of my mobile office: laptop, battery charger, extra disks, books, pencils, PDA, file folders, digital camera, flashlight, mouse, mouse pad, etc., etc. To my dismay, I was only able to fit a fraction of the things I needed to carry around into this backpack.
The idea of making it impossible to get into the backpack unless it has been removed from your shoulder is brilliant, and the product is constructed of excellent materials. However, it was quite a bit short on storage space for my needs, so I regrettably had to return it. If the manufacturers could somehow make it larger while still keeping the overall design within proportion, I reckon they would have a winner of a product....more info
- Excellent pack for large laptops
This pack works great for my HP 17" laptop. As others have mentioned, the pack is quite large. I'm over six feet tall so that's not an issue for me, but a smaller person might be bothered by the size. It would have been nice if they had included a chest strap, but other than that this is an excellent way to transport your large laptop and accessories....more info
- Huge, too huge
The 17" laptop by it's self is big, but when you put it in the backpack there is still space to the sides and top of the computer. too much.
The style really looks like a TMNT shell. Its good for tricker-treating.
It's secure thats for sure and if you don't care about style than this is the one for you....more info
- Very High Quality
This bag is really high quality stuff. The fabric, material and especially protection of the laptop is very well-designed. Strongly recommended to the people who is seeking for "secure" protection for their 17" laptops....more info
- Mobile backpack
I have had many mobile backpacks over the years. This backpack takes the cake. Lots of room. Well designed spaces for all types of tech. The ipod slot on the top is pisser. For the money a great value. I highly recommend you purchase this backpack. You won't be sorry. The only downside is the color selection. 2 choices are poor. That is the only minor gripe....more info
- Perfect backpack
I purchased this item so that I could park a mile away from work and walk to and fro. I can carry personal items, homework and my laptop comfortably. The balance is wonderful and my back and shoulders feel no strain. The streamlined look is very professional and the reflective piping lets cars know I am there. I couldn't be more pleased....more info
- Great motorcycle backpack
I needed a backpack I could use on my motorcycle that wouldn't get torn up by riding at highway speeds. I did a bunch of research before purchasing, and after a month now I'm still happy with it.
On the good side: Don't have to double-check zippers before riding since nothing can fall out, heavy fabric and padding, reflective piping for riding at night, holds a lot of stuff, and fits well over a motorcycle jacket or regular clothes.
On the bad side: Stitching is sub-par, shoulder straps are very long and the excess has to be tucked away to keep from flapping around, if you don't have much stuff in the bag the handle presses up against the back of your neck.
Another note: This backpack is big. That's fine for me, but I don't think you'd be able to put it under a seat on an airplane.
Overall I think this is a great product for the money. Works well, looks good, and doesn't cost much. Works for me!...more info
- I really liked it, but it was too big
This backpack was perfect for my needs. I was looking for a laptop backpack to use while riding my bicycle to work and back. This would have worked great, but it was just too big for me. I'm 5 ft. tall and the bottom part of the pack hung practically to the bottom of my rear end...with the straps as tight as I could have them. When I tried to saddle my bike with it on, it was really uncomfortable because it was so long. I'm actually sad about it because I really liked the pack. I had to go with the Mobile Edge Express Backpack instead....more info
