PROS: Good design, light weight, but tough, and big capacity with carrying 17 inch my Apple PC everywhere.
CONS: No Cons, but I eager to put a side handle on.

PROS: I needed to replace my SG bag that blew a strap in a little over a year. I purchased the TP bag after reading the review written by Class Leader. I just finished my first business trip with this new bag and it worked out great.It is a high quality bag that fits my needs. Long term will see how it holds up.
CONS: Cost was a bit higher that the SG bag.

PROS: I really like the strap on the back that secures the backpack to the handle of my upright suitcase. I like the small pocket for my iPod with an open flap for the headhpone wire. It has great storage and lots of padding for laptop and iPad.
CONS: I have not discovered any cons yet!

PROS: I travel 2-3 weeks a month for the last 4 years. This is by far the best backpack.
Good organization and separations.
Fits on my carry-on and is well balanced.
Sits up on its own.
Comfortable to wear even when heavy.
CONS: It is a very tall backpack so takes a little getting used to for longer wear.

PROS: Nice laptop backpack, seems very well made. I've only taken one trip with it so far and it was a snap going through security. Pockets for everything and quite comfortable to carry.
I looked around for a while and considered spending 2 - 4x the price for the Tumi bag but in the end think that the Travelpro is its match in terms of functionality and construction.
CONS: The velcro strap to connect the bag to a rollaboard is designed to work with the new narrower handled bags. No easy way to connect the bag to my existing rollaboard other than anadd-on hook (in front).

PROS: Lots of storage, can overnight with just this bag and still have room for work stuff!
CONS: Not a one.......................

PROS: I purchased the SwissGear Travel Gear ScanSmart Backpack 1900 along with the Zuca and the Travelpro Crew 9 Business Backpack to determine which was best suited for my business and personal travel. The SwissGear (SG) is the #1 rated laptop backpack on ebags.com, the Travelpro (TP) came recommended by a colleague and garners consistently high marks across the industry, and the Zuca line (in general) intrigued me. The Zuca did not compare to either of the other two bags in terms of its build quality, the materials used and its functionality. Combined with the fact that the Zuca is also a $100 backpack, the Zuca was the first cut.
The SwissGear and Travelpro are virtually identical in their form, functionality and quality of build. The TP overall is a more professional, less casual backpack and is constructed of slightly higher quality materials. The TP also costs twice as much as the SG. The three reasons I chose the Travelpro over the SwissGear are as follows: 1.) I prefer the TP’s more refined styling and superior build quality; 2.) the TP includes a built-in keychain clip; 3.) the TP has a strap to attach to your carry-on luggage.
• Large backpack capable of holding all of your travel gear and electronics
• Top notch construction and materials used
• Elegant, refined look appropriate for business and personal use
• TSA approved laptop compartment allows you to keep your laptop IN your bag as you go through the airport screening process
• Includes built-in strap to attach to any two-post carry-on luggage telescoping handle
Final thoughts: Both the SwissGear and Travelpro are excellent laptop backpacks. Both are of similar size and function. The SwissGear is a “casual first” backpack that is appropriate for business use, whereas the Travelpro is a “business first” backpack that also functions extremely well for personal use.
• This bag may be too large for some people’s uses
• This bag may not be casual enough (i.e. college students) for some people’s uses
• Has a higher price point without reaching the “designer stratosphere” of cost
• Only comes in two colors: black and grey, which may be a deterrent to some
