Targus CityGear Carrying Case (Backpack) for 17 Notebook
Perfect travel bag
I bought this in 2005 to lug my laptop and other electronics and stuff. I lugged it around the entire country while working in refineries, and I can honestly say i filled this bag to the rim. treated it pretty harshly the entire time.
Not only does the bag look great still, I have just now broken a zipper pull.
I Highly recommend this bag to any avid traveler
I only wish my pack had a tablet holder like the new version but aside from that,
I love it.

Best Backpck ever owned
I've been using this backpack for 9 years and counting now! The most durable product I've ever owned.

Perfect gadget organizer bag design, not durable
Perfect design for the road warrior with tons of gadgets, but the zipper pulls all fell off within about a year, and the main zipper started failing shortly thereafter. If you're looking for an inexpensive backpack with tons of pockets and organizers for electronics, this can't be beat... just don't expect it to last forever. Like several Targus backpacks I've owned, its zippers and zipper pulls can't take long term use. Although the design of my last 2 Targus bags has been perfect for my road warrior lifestyle, I'm considering a switch to a more expensive brand in quest of a bag that I can get more than 18 months out of without zipper failure.

4 continents, 9 countries, 6 years - still going
I rarely write reviews for products, but couldn't resist on writing about my trusty CityGear bag. Now, the truth is I've only ever paid for one Targus bag: The year was 1993 and I've been getting replacements ever since. Eventually the bags all wear out -- all except this one. I've literally taken my CityGear bag everywhere I've gone for the past six years on planes, trains and automobiles across four continents, nine countries and hundreds of trips. It's by far the most spacious bag I've ever owned and it can just keep expanding and expanding. I toured Tokyo for 48 hours with nothing but this bag loaded down with all I needed. I did the same in Paris. I've toted it all over South Africa. It's survived Singapore, Oslo, London and Rome. It has pockets in all the right places, protects my laptop well, and is comfortable to wear. After six years, yes the rubber zipper pulls have eroded away and there's a tear in the mesh water bag, but otherwise it's in impeccable condition still. And you have to understand, I'm not careful with it, but rather punishing. You simply can't go wrong with this one.
