        Comments about SwissGear Ibex 17" Computer Backpack:

        I got this backpack two weeks ago after my old Rosewill backpack that I only owned for a year had its shoulder straps rip on one side. Since I didn't want to risk losing my laptop that I carry all the time to falling damage, I started looking around and stumbled upon this.

        The bottom line here is: BELIEVE THE HYPE. Yes, I know that this backpack might be a little pricier than others on the market, but why would you want to sacrifice a laptop or tablet when you can just spend a little more?

        The laptop protection offered is second to none. Yes, there is a laptop pocket inside the backpack that comes with a Velcro strap for further security. Notice that I said "pocket". The laptop sits INSIDE a pocket that gives it full protection, even on the bottom, so you don't have to worry about setting your bag down. The velcro strap is also a great feature. Also, the bottom of the backpack is made out of a fake leather-like material that offers protection against moisture.

        The backpack itself is very comfortable to wear. Currently, I carry a laptop, two big, heavy binders, a bulky laptop charger, phone charger, a TI-84 calculator, color pencils, 2 mechanical pencils, pens, erasers, highlighters, markers, mechanical pencil lead, ear buds and headphones.

        I've found pockets for ALL of these things and they're perfectly secure. The bottle pockets on the side of the backpack are pretty snug... maybe a little too snug? I guess it's better to have it that tight and not tight enough.

        I've gotten a lot of compliments about the backpack's looks because it looks great. Also, the zippers are cool looking and also have a zipper "flap" underneath to protect against water if you have to take a BRIEF walk in a light rain in between classes.

        All in all, I recommend this backpack for college students. I look forward to using this backpack every day until I finish my degree.

        If you're the parent of a college student looking for a new backpack, look no further. Protect that laptop you bought your kid with this backpack unless you want to buy them another one ;)

        I can't say enough good things this backpack. Buy this.

          Comments about SwissGear Ibex 17" Computer Backpack:

          I purchased this to travel with multiple devises. Even when I carry two 15" laptops there is sufficent space and padding to feel certain that they will make the trip unscathed. Even with several devises on board there is plenty of room for chargers, mice (not the four legged variety) and much more. Noboby seems to advertise there backpacks for multiple devises but this works as well as I could have hoped for. As for B&H, fast service and great prices.

            My HP 16.5" (overall width, not diagonal) laptop fits perfect. There might even be room for another 1/2" to the width. Plenty of extra compartments for all the accessories, books, and a tablet.

                I already owned one of these backpacks and liked it so much I bought two more for my sons going to college. This backpack is very well made. It has great zippers that work very smoothly. There are a lot of compartments. The compartment that holds the computer had a Velcro strap that keeps the computer secure. I think my favorite compartment is between the carrying handle and the computer compartment. It's a small softly lined storage area to keep a mouse safe. I don't like digging in a deep compartment for the mouse. it's very easy to get to if you take your computer out often.
