            I bought this backpack for work to take my laptop and other project material between buildings. It fits my 15.5" laptop great and still has a ton of room for other things. I have told 2 other people at work to get they same one and they think its great also.

            Expensive, but nice bag...

            Comments about SwissGear Synergy 16" Computer Backpack:

            After 3 brief cases, couple of messenger bags, and a few backpacks, this is by far the most rugged and compartmentalized backpack. It holds my computer, ipad, blackberry, iPhone, lunch, books, notes etc... Just about everything but the kitchen sink! It is a bit large if full and difficult to fit under an airline seat - especially if seating in an aisle. Overall well constructed, and I would buy again.

            Comments about SwissGear Synergy 16" Computer Backpack:

            I bought this backpack from B&H at a great price and used it on a week long vacation with my wife. It was perfect for the iPads,video camera, digital still camera, etc. There are pockets for just about everything and was a great airplane carry-on bag that I could store the headphones, phone, sunglasses, flight information, etc. After the vacation I started using it for work as my regular laptop bag. Works well, but can be a bit bulky from time to time. Only design flaw that I found is there is a hole to run the headphone cord through to where there is an interior pocket for mp3 or phone. The hole comes through in the wrong pocket. Other than that, I love the bag.

              Comments about SwissGear Synergy 16" Computer Backpack:

              Really great bag! Had a Targus bag which I liked a lot but the Swiss Gear Synergy is a lot better designed and feels more rugged. First of all it stands straight when put on the ground, unlike the Targus which always fell forward. Another great thing about the Synergy is the amount of space and loads of pockets. I stuff my bag with gym equipment, towel, bathing suit, toiletries, etc. With the Targus it barley fit, with the Synergy, no problem. Another thing I like about this bag is the zippers, feels much stronger and easier to slide than the Targus zippers, which often got stuck on the nylon. Also, I like the material that the Synergy is made from better than the Nylon of Targus, the Nylon is great for lighter weight but if you want rugged the Synergy feels stronger and better built. Another good thing with the Synergy are the two handles, one thick handle to carry in hand, rugged and strong, the other in back of it to hang the bag from a wall in the gym, for instance. All in all, I'd buy the Synergy again in a snap, without hesitation, a fantastic bag, a great buy!

              This backpack works great for traveling. I primarily use the backpack while traveling and the multiple compartments are very handy for the different computer accessories I bring with me.

                          I tried a couple of different SwissGear backpacks, and this one, while not the most expensive, was the most versatile. It has lots of small separate zippered storage compartments to carry hardware and miscellaneous items along with two large storage areas for a laptop and printed materials. The padded straps and elastic "shock absorbers" make it comfortable to wear as you do the "airport dash", even when it's heavily loaded. This is a great pack for today's road warrior!

                            I travel a lot and this is one of the best bags I have ever had. I have used SwissGear and Wenger for a long time and appreciate the quality.
                            This bag allows for separation of gadgets, wires, phone, headphones, papers, pens, iPad, and anything else you can think of. It's comfortable to wear or carry and seems to be made very well.
                            I would recommend this bag to my friends.

                            This is a well-comstructed bag that will take whatever you can dish out. The compartment layout was done woth lots of thought and the materials are first-class.
                            I really like the flexibility the different pockets offer. And it looks good to boot! Very happy with it.

                                      This is my second Synergy backpack. The first one still works but was showing signs of wear. This backpack has hundreds of thousands of air miles (deserves its own frequent flyer #), has been used to/from the office here in the US, has lived in Malaysia and has made the journey to the office every day. I used this backpack on an 8-day trip to Taiwan (no other luggage)and a 5 day trip to Hong Kong/Macau. It is roomy, plenty of zippered compartments, deep storage. The original backpack was to be retired but my wife just took it back to Malaysia as she needed more carry-on room. *sigh*

                                      Great, solid,sturdy, roomy backpack for MANY occasions.
