Fantastic bag
5 Star Review   By member lial - Dec 6, 2007   

Strengths: MANY MANY compartments. Good protective shell for the laptop. Comfortable fit on shoulders.

Weakness: None.

I have been using this bag for the past month, and I have at least taken it on one airplane trip. I found the bag to be wonderful and carried, organized, and compartmentalized all my gadgets (my camera, mp3 player, CD/DVDs, memory card readers). It holds your papers, magazines, and pens in compartments, too. Additionally, there is a little compartment for your business cards, IDs, credit cards, etc. There is criss cross of strings that will allow you to hold your water bottle at the side. Surprisingly there is a little plastic thing that unravels from the bottom of a zipper compartment that can wrap around and cover the bag to protect it from rain. Simply great. It felt sturdy and comfortable on my shoulders. So basically, I have no complaints and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an all-purpose traveling laptop bag.

4 Star Review   By member slyman103 - Nov 15, 2007   

Strengths: Durable, comfortable and easy to use.

Weakness: A tight fit with the laptop, power cord and books all in one compartment.

For the price I paid, this thing is awesome. Very sturdy and looks nice. Lots of features such as a bottle holder, a pocket for a phone, mp3 player, sunglasses, etc. and a cover to protect the bag when its raining. The zipper also allows you to use a lock to secure your laptop. I could have used a little more space for books.

A nice laptop backpack
4 Star Review   By member realshopmaster - Nov 7, 2007   

Strengths: Well padded, elastic-rimmed rain cover enclosed, good price

Weakness: stiff and ugly

I got the backpack at a great price. It is well-padded and big enough for a 15.4" laptop, while still having plenty of rooms for books, MP3 players, cell phone, PDA, camera, umbrella, sunglass, water bottle, and more. The backpack is also equipped with a zippered media pocket for easy access to an MP3 or CD player. The most important feature of this backpack is the elastic-rimmed rain cover that is completely out of the way when not needed and is effective in keeping the entire backpack dry. On the negative side, the backpack is pretty stiff and looks ugly.

Excellent backpack for laptops
5 Star Review   By member ev01ut10nDT - Nov 4, 2007   

Strengths: Durable material, a lot of cushioning to protect the computer, a cool raincover that hides easily, high quality zippers.

Weakness: Too wide...and too rigid to compress it. Does not hold much aside from computer

I would highly recommend this backpack if you are not carrying many books as i can only fit a couple binders plus the computer. Otherwise, find one that can expand outwards more. High quality product that one would expect from Targus. Comfortable padding, quality material, rather stylish and conservative styling at the same time. The color is actually closer to real slate rather than the ugly looking gray color in the pictures. The red interior is a nice touch as well.

heavy duty & durable bag
5 Star Review   By member nebulousness - Nov 4, 2007   

Strengths: large, well padded, many pockets, comfortable

Weakness: large if you have a smaller laptop

This has to be the best laptop bag I have ever used. It is very durable and spacious. There are pockets abd pouches for everything. It even has a collapsible rain cover that folds into its own pocket. It is very well padded to protect a laptop, and the back and straps are padded to make carrying very comfortable as well. I love it and would buy again!

Nice Bag
4 Star Review   By member bllum - Oct 26, 2007   

Strengths: Nice padding in the main compartment which keeps the notebook very secure. Has plenty of pockets for everything. I like the waterproof pullover feature.

Weakness: I don't like the inside burgundy color, but no one will see it anyways I guess. The bag might be too small for some after the notebook is in it, but it is fine for my needs.

Overall I think this is a great bag. It is well constructed, has nice padding in the compartment and I really like the waterproof feature. Has lots of pockets for all of your accessories and will be perfect for anyone who wants an easy was to carry around their notebook.

Like it with a few drawbacks
3 Star Review   By member srisammy - Oct 22, 2007   

Strengths: Laptop is safe with enough padding

Weakness: Too little space for carrying more items in addition to laptop

I like it a lot but wish had more room. The bag is made of really good material, has lots of pockets inside and outside and it does last long.

A great bag for the price.
5 Star Review   By member slagfyr235 - Oct 22, 2007   

Strengths: Sturdy construction; well-padded (even pockets); weather resistant; comfortable straps.

Weakness: Though roomy for a backpack of this sort, it still does not hold as much as my regular computer bag (also a Targus).

A nicely appointed backpack for the price. Even the pockets provide protection, so smaller tech items don't need to be shoved into the main compartment with the laptop. My laptop is 15", and this backpack accommodates it well. The padding is so sturdy that a fall from shoulder height (I speak from experience) did no damage. I would recommend this product with little reservation. While buyers should not expect to fit as much into it as they would a regular (non-computer) backpack, it is still quite spacious. And everything else about it is top-notch.

Tragus Backpack
5 Star Review   By member psycobust - Oct 22, 2007   

Strengths: Good design, strong and sturdy, many compartments

Weakness: interior color is not my favorite

This is a great deal if you got one from buy.com when it was on sale. Exceleent build quality and the starps dont dig in your sides like some backpacks. The exterior is not prone to tearing and the color stays great. The inside is an ugly color but Ill bypass that for the savings and build quality.

Targus Backpack very well worth the money I spent
4 Star Review   By member berry24 - Oct 22, 2007   

Strengths: It is indeed a very good back pack, with ultimate cushioning for my laptop,I feel that filling of cushion has really helped my a laptop a lot, I like the feature of sunglass holder.

Weakness: Only draw back I find in this bag is there is not much space for other things other than the laptop, and i need to carry another bag for my other necessaries.

I need to carry my laptop daily from my house to work and vice versa and this back pack has done a great job, and now Iam buying one more for my hubby, keeping in mind the durability of the bag, especially I like the feature of Sunglass holder as I own a very expensive set of sunglasses, this bag has helped me in a lot of ways

nicely cushioned and sturdy built
5 Star Review   By member bag4acerlaptop - Oct 22, 2007   

Strengths: good protection for laptop, colors scheme is funky (per my gf)good number of pockets and zipping is awsome

Weakness: heavier than normal backpacks, i dont like burgundy color lining (personally), cannot put big books in it

we really don't need a extra backpack but the deal was awsome, so we bought it, I'm very comfortable putting my new IBM thinkpad in this bag knowing that it's protected up to best possible extent given by any backpack.cushioning is nice but sometime it's way extra cushions that it don't let me put extra wires or external harddrive in it. I also own Targus groove pack and the shoulder strap on this bag is way more comofy than groove backpack ( i got groovy backpack from Bestbuy for 10$), OVERALL, i cannot find big enough complaint to not give this bag 5 star. it's a killer buy for amount we paid and we are totally satisfied by its performance.

Great bag
5 Star Review   By member wsn97 - Oct 22, 2007   

Strengths: high quality

Weakness: not very fancy

I really like this bag! It fits perfectly for my thinkpad T60 and the quality from Targus is excellent! The bag has plenty of space for almost everything: laptop, flashdisk, mp3 player and even some of my documents. I am very satisfied with this bag!
