“Having air-traveled the last 5 years with only carry-on bags, it's been important to have a capacious and sturdy knapsack that fits my laptop -- inside its own case -- and be stuffed to the max yet still fit inside the typical jet’s overhead compartment. Thus, I scoured the websites looking for a candidate. This one pretty much makes it. Just a couple of nitpiks here. First, those smaller, outer pockets are very valuable to me, for that's where I stick stuff like boarding passes and internet-ticket-purchased receipts, travel itineraries, my checkbooks, passport, etc. So Targus, please use two zippers on the outermost front pocket so I can zip it up from both sides of the bottom, rather than zip from one bottom corner up, around and down to the other bottom corner (that allows too much stuff to fall out of the pocket in the middle of a flight). Second, please make the net overall “cavity width” another 2-3 inches wider because, even fully loaded, that will still fit in the overheads and frankly, space and durability form my bottom line here. I haven't put any "mileage" on this bag yet but it feels sturdy (the one I had was just great but after 10 years of heavy duty travel demands, it understandably started to split around the seams). So, 4 stars, not 5 -- until Targus incorporates my wonderful suggestions. Kudos, btw, to Wal-Mart for publishing user reviews – that drives up to 90% of my decision on whether to buy a given product over another (it’s also why I take the time to send in my review – thanks to all others who participate, just wish we were all “calibrated” because 4 stars from me, for example, may be 3 stars to another, or 5....)
