Lower quality, fewer options - not a great bag.,
Amazon Verified Purchase
This review is from: Targus CityGear Backpack Case for 17 Inch Notebooks TCG216 (Black with Grey) (Personal Computers)This has the potential to be a great bag, but doesn't quite get there. I replaced a 7-year old Targus backpack that finally gave out, after >100,000 miles of air travel - the zipper for the main laptop compartment broke. Great product, so I thought - we'll go with Targus again.
Wrong. This bag had potential - TONS of storage, lots of pockets, some nice features advertised, so I ordered it. When it arrived, I noticed a significant decline in quality - the nylon is thinner, cheaper, and the laptop storage compartment has almost no padding to speak of. The zippers are cheap - go back to YKKs or at least something with a substantial track and closure mechanism - these won't last.
Targus also advertises a key clip in the front organizer pocket. WRONG - it's NOT there, even though Amazon.com and Targus' website both state that it exists. They've taken it out (likely to cut costs), and this a huge negative for me. Who wants to dig around in their bag after... Read more

Its a big bag....,
This review is from: Targus CityGear Backpack Case for 17 Inch Notebooks TCG216 (Black with Grey) (Personal Computers)So I needed a very large capacity backpack with a compartment to safely carry a 15 inch laptop, and I got it. Ample space, and its not cluttered up with file organizers, or zippered pouches, or any of that crap which you will almost never use which just ruins the space, so that was good. It doesn't seem cheap, just thin and almost weak. I have it loaded down with 4 text books, all my school supplies, and a laptop, and it is holding up fine, I think it could have been made a little 'sturdier' is all. I'm not disappointed at all though. Good bag if you need to carry a library on your back.

More potential for traveling than school,
This review is from: Targus CityGear Backpack Case for 17 Inch Notebooks TCG216 (Black with Grey) (Personal Computers)I've only had this bag for less than a couple weeks, so there's still quite a few uncertainties about this bag in terms of durability and longevity. Nonetheless, I have to admit too... this pack is HUUUGE!!! I'm currently only using it for school, in which this bag has more storage space than I'll probably ever need. On the other hand, it also has great potential for traveling, and may offer just enough space, organization, and convenience for a carry-on or weekend getaway. I have a 17" MacBook Pro that fits very easily with ample room to spare. However, I wonder if the 15.4" backpack would've been more snug and just right for the laptop, or maybe too small. The only thing I would've changed was put more velcro on beneath the strap in order to reduce the excess space inside the laptop pocket. Hence, I'm getting a sleeve in order to "fill" that space and for extra padding and Protection of my laptop. Other than that, the backpack does look very nice and stylish, feels very... Read more
