The black/gray 16" Shift Plus Backpack from Targus can make working during your daily commute much easier. This is a relatively small backpack that hosts a myriad of features that will make it appealing to anyone who needs an affordable pack for a 16" laptop as well as support gear such as cables, storage drives, files, MP3 player and much more.
The quality polyester exterior is supported by a handy pull-out rain cover that can be deployed when you're caught in inclement weather. A rear zippered pocket is for your laptop while two more pockets hold other equipment. It's all readily accessible using the dual zippers for each compartment. A smaller front compartment can be used for keys, ID or any other small, quick access item.
Targus has employed its SafePORT Air Cushion System that is provided to protect your laptop and equipment in case the pack is accidentally dropped. The pack is characterized by a unique workspace that allows you to work with your laptop as well as having access to pens, note pad, phone and other office supplies. Dual zippered side pockets have been provided for everything from sunglasses to other readily needed items such as keys.
The interior has plenty of extra space for those items that you hadn't anticipated packing but suddenly find yourself needing. For ease of transport, the back panel has been heavily padded and is soft and breathable making walking much easier. The harness straps are adjustable and complimented by a top carry handle for quick grab moments like when you're leaving the office and just want to grab the pack.
For your listening enjoyment, there's a dedicated MP3 player pocket that contains a pass-thru for the headphones. All of this is included in a reasonably-priced pack that comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
