Release Date: 6/17/2003
Sizes: 15″, 17″
The Good: Tons of compartments, supports a lot of weight, extremely durable, protects items well, doesn’t feel bulky
The Bad: A bit pricey
I purposefully chose so long before reviewing this product. I have had it for just about a year and a half, and I use it to tote around my bulky and heavy Alienware M17x-R2. If this laptop bag can withstand this sucker it will handle any laptop. This one is designed for 17″ laptops, but can accommodate for up to 19″. There are tons of compartments, and plenty of room without being really bulky.
Thankfully the bag has a lot of metal clips and nails instead of having everything sewn on. There’s a front pouch with a nice sturdy plastic snap that has a smaller zipper pouch in the very front. In here are pen holders, ID card holder, and a plastic clip for keys. There is also a cloth separator, but in front of this pouch is a small mesh zipper compartment. In the very back there is a zipper compartment that has a cloth separator in it where I usually put my bulky laptop charger. Inside is where you store the laptop, but it has Velcro separator for keeping the laptop snug. On the top part are two pouches for mice, cables, and even a couple of mesh zipper pouches. There’s even a few CD slots which is nice. This bag has everything and I can cram this thing full and still have room.
I have never owned a better bag in my entire life. Nothing has ripped, torn, or broken. Thankfully there are hard plastic pieces on the bottom corners of the bag for protecting from drops or hard set-downs. There’s a handle on top, or you can use the shoulder strap. I’ve had this thing loaded over 30 pounds and not a single thing has worn out in 18 months. This bag is extremely durable and even protects your items from rain.
If you can shell out the money this is the best laptop bag you will ever own. There’s tons of room, more compartments than you know what to do with, and supports a lot of weight. It will protect your items, and I promise you won’t look back.
