Great successor to my shoulder bag

This bag replaces a very good Kensington Countour shoulder bag that I had for years. I wanted to spread the load of my laptop and accessories across both shoulders instead of all on one. A rolling case was rejected due to its awkwardness in smaller commuter planes when I travel. I should mention that I am on the road 50% of the time. This bag is easier to carry than my old one, spreads the load comfortably, has sufficient - but not extra - room for my stuff. My "stuff" is a 15" Macbook Pro, cables, headsets, iPod, a file folder or two, snacks for my trips, writing instruments, small Canon camera, TomTom GPS, documents, cash in multiple currencies, business cards (lots), and who knows what. The Pegasus holds it all and doesn't kill my back.

The only real negatives, and the reason it isn't a five star, are:
1. There is no waist strap to help keep weight off the shoulders when I have to carry it for a long time. This is pretty standard in bags of this class and price, so it's a surprising omission. That said, the shoulder strap system and its thumb loops work out well.

2. There is only a pocket for bunching up a handful of writing instruments together. That is, there are no individual pen holders that are present in most packs and bags. Once again, the one larger pen pocket provided is OK, but I would rather have had six or so individual slots.

3. The water bottle pockets on the sides of the pack are really only comfortable for most pint (16oz) bottles and have to be stretched to fit a quart or liter bottle. In fact, I think many of them would not fit if they have a wide aspect ratio.

So, all of this does not dampen my enthusiasm for the Pegasus. It's still a great choice, and I would recommend it to anyone who has to haul a similar bunch of equipment all over the airways.

I use a backpack for all my daily commutes as well as long trips. It was difficult to find a bag that would fit a laptop with a 17" screen within my budget. The Wenger bag did just that. This is my carry-on bag for flights, so it gets stuffed quite a bit.

The back is very durable even through multiple screenings, but the weight becomes an issue after a couple of hours. The bag itself is heavy and with the added weight of multiple devices it becomes more so. The straps are sufficient and sturdy, but not very comfortable with a load. There are extra straps that seem to be great for hiking or cross country skiing, but they are more a nuisance when using this as a travel bag - cut them off.

The bag has plenty of pocket space but a lot of that is used up when other pockets are expanded. So, it seems to be a bit more for "looks" than for "use".

looks good and works great

Comments about SwissGear® Pegasus Laptop Backpack, Black/Blue, 17":

We got this backpack for our son (in college) for Christmas. He loves it and he can be very picky about things. It's very sturdy, obviously well made, with lots of pockets for various things the college student would need today. It has a very nice pocket which fits his laptop perfectly. All in all a great product!

A Great Gift

Comments about SwissGear® Pegasus Laptop Backpack, Black/Blue, 17":

This is such an amazing product. This backpack is well worth the investment; it is durable, stylish, and has ample space to accommodate all of my son's college materials that he needs on a daily basis. It has such a timeless look, and it makes a terrific gift for any guy on your gift list. The fine detail with the design gives it a distinguishing appearance, and sets this backpack apart from the rest that are currently on the market.
This is the second one that I have purchased (he lost the first one in Super Storm Sandy), and he received a nice looking backpack from a charitable organization...we were grateful, but I knew he really wanted his SwissGear.
The look on his face when he opened his gift this Christmas, was a look of content and and happiness that he got his "best backpack" back!

Very nice looking and sturdy backpack. It has convenient pockets inside and out and is well balanced when carried. The material is heavy weight and the contrasting colors make it stylish and attractive.

I bought this backpack for my college son who is an Engineering student. He carries a lot of heavy books and needs a very strong, durable backpack. This backpack is just want he needs.

Great Product

Comments about SwissGear® Pegasus Laptop Backpack, Black/Blue, 17":

I brought this back pack for my hushand who has a 17 inch laptop. He uses his laptop alot especially playing music. He has a friend who has one and has admired the back pack since then. He has made several comments that he would like to have one too. I did some research about pack backs holding 17" laptops, and all the customers reviews on this product were great. It has multiple zipped pockets to help hold all the accessories you need with a laptop. It is wrapped under my tree now, I hope he will be very suprised when he opens this on Christmas morning.
