Rated 5 out of 5 by Mariah from Great quality This backpack is perfect for on the go! I really enjoy that it fits both my laptop and my tablet at the same time. The inside is high quality so I feel my electronics are safe and padded. I really enjoy the wheels as well, especially when I have the bag packed full and I don't want to carry it. It's easy to switch from straps to wheels too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maggie888 from Smart Design I wish I had this rolling backpack / case years ago. It is such a clever design and makes it so much easier to carry all the things you need - including your water bottle. A lot zippered pockets that have features that make it easy to keep everything you need organized. So no searching for items as everything is easy to access. Sewn in pockets to hold pencils pens along with other essentials. Pocket for your water bottle on the side. Padded pockets for your laptop and tablets. Straps keep items secured. The back straps are also nicely padded to make it more comfortable to carry. The extendable handle is tall enough so it is easy to roll without having to bend over. The wheels move and maneuver smoothly. Makes everything neat, accessible and secure. I will be buying a few of these for family members as gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KG from A great gift for dad! I got this rolling backpack for my dad and he loves. He finds it very functional; he can either carry it or simply roll it if it's too heavy to carry. It fits his laptop and all his essentials. He already got a lot of compliments on the bag. Great job Targus on designing a bag that appealing and functional at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Buyer from Great for work I use this product at work to carry my laptop with me to offsite meetings and when working from home. The backpack is light and rolls easily. I like the cover for the wheels so it doesn't get your back or car dirty when not being rolled. There is plenty of storage for all the items I need to take with me for meetings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lazer from Handle stuck up Handle stuck in the up position after 1 month of use. The place where the handle extends into the bag is very bulky. It doesn't hold as much as it seems like it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jo12256 from Quality Computer Backpack I needed a new computer bag and wanted the option of having a rolling bag vs only a backpack. Targus has designed a bag with lots of organizing compartments for all my stuff. From the areas for pens, phone and files to a double padded area for my laptop. The bag is easy to change from backpack to roller. The wheels are solid and very sturdy. The stitching is heavy duty and I think this bag will work well for me for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kylestrubs from Not stylish but effective The look and style leaves a little to be desired. The pull handle is slightly too big for a normal pull through the concourse. The bag is nice and the zippers work well. There isn’t a ton of room but if you didn’t want to have the bag attached to your back this would make sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susie2 from great features! I love that this backpack can roll! It has been so helpful in my travels. Works for most airline carry on size restrictions. I was impressed by the quality and durability plus it's just been refreshing to be able to just use this bag instead of a smaller bag I have to carry on my shoulder.
