5 out of 5 eggsGreat backpack for school

Pros: I am a sophmore in highschool going on to be a junior and this is the perfect backpack for me. I carry tons of books and this helped me get through it and it's perfect to bring on trips with your laptop and stuff. This thing can take a beating too! My friends always tug at my bag while i am walking to get me mad and annoy me but the handle has stayed strong. It also has deep pockets and are able to really stuff this thing to full capacity and still have a bit of room :)

Cons: Shoulder straps somewhat wripped away from the elastic, but it really makes no difference unless you're annoyed by it because it's hardly noticeable and only happened because of rough handling. Other than that i love this bag!

Other Thoughts: Just know to get optimal use for school and book stuffing make sure to organize the bag because by distributing books through the pockets it will allow you to stuff more and more in there. Just be well organized and know that this is the perfect bag! There is even a 17" one too if you wanna go bigger!

1 out of 5 eggsLot's of Room, But Beware it cannot handle much weight

Pros: Durable Zippers, durable body material, got it for 15 dollars less; Lot's of Room

Cons: Shoulder Straps cannot handle much weight, seams on the straps are not strong the straps do not feel durable, single seams really?, tore very easily, Easy RMA with Targus, but had to pay 24 dollars to ship back, I am very disappointed in this product it had a lot of potential, but I am going to wait for my replacement, and see what happens, if I am not satisfied, I will shop around for another product and use the backpack for non moving storage.

Other Thoughts: Watch out for the Shoulder Straps seams they cannot handle much weight. Liked the color and aesthetic.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable Backpack

Pros: Large, and durable backpack. Though I would like to review about the long run, that will have to wait. Been using it almost everyday since I received it and no wear or tear yet.

Cons: None on the conditions of this item, however I never received a phone pouch for my backpack. I don't use a cellphone, but I am sad that this accessory which should have came with the purchase never did. I did not remove an egg because that little thing has made no difference to me on how I use my backpack, however I wish to have it whether or not I use a phone in the future.

Other Thoughts: The backpack I had before was a generic backpack and was getting small for my being, and the things I carried actually started to bruise my back (mainly my bike lock is to blame). This was on the shell shockers at one point and I thought change and expansion was needed for my future. I've had Targus cases in the past, and their name was mainly why I bought this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Backpack

Pros: Large size, tough design meant to last, I loved the case the second I opened it, plenty of compartments to keep accessories and school items

Cons: The straps are not the most comfortable if you are carrying a lot, but otherwise they're fine . They could have put more padding in the straps but that's just my preference.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: I've had one of these for almost 2 years, quality is high and comfort level is good

Cons: after carrying around 45 lbs of laptops and assorted techie gear one of the shoulder straps finally gave out, i don't want to ding it an egg because while i was not exactly abusive on it, i didn't treat it gently

Other Thoughts: great tech backpack if you are looking for something cheap, holds tons of stuff, i usualyl carry 2 laptops, a tablet, 2 mice, a TKL mech keyboard, a screwdriver kit, several external harddrives both 2.5 and 3.5 sizes, headphones, headset (both full size circumaural) my r-pi, 20 or so flash drives, couple spare ssds and 2.5" hdds, couple usb wfi nics, and sometimes a 6 pack of beer

and it withstood constant grabbing by a single strap, tossing in my car, carrying by a strap for almost 2 years before finally giving in

not bad, i would expect to pay 2-3 times as much for something with the same capability and quality

5 out of 5 eggsHard to Complain

Pros: Numerous pockets, extra padding, waterproof base, wired strap with plastic coating (so it wont break), and for a decent price. I compared this with three other backpacks and I found this one to be overall the most durable, most useful, best looking, and best price.

Cons: I don't know how durable this is in the long run, yet.

Other Thoughts: I actually got this one at ma rshalls for a lower price.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Quality

Pros: Excellent Design and Quality

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have owned a lot of different bags/backpacks: eddie bauer was excellent, ogio was great, but hit or miss on their product lines, but targus has been improving since they began and have the best value on the current market (in my opinion).
