Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Swissgear Getaway Backpack

(1/1)

Needed a weekend bag, that was backpack type personal bag size for the airline I flew and this was perfect! I was able to fit 2 outfits, a pair of sandals and my toiletry pack with no issues, while still able to pack souvenirs I brought back with me. Roomy and lots of space, I have no complaints about this bag. Also it's very comfortable to carry with the padded straps. Swissgear may be my new brand of go to bags

Compartment

Swissgear Getaway Backpack

(1/1)

Here are the things that I like about the bag: 1. Separate laptop compartment - This was a must have as it makes going through airport security so much easier. The backpack has a compartment along the back that fits my 15'' macbook pro as well as a letter sized journal. The zipper goes down the side of the backpack, and it's is close to the strap at the bottom, so it can sometimes get a little tangled getting the laptop in and out, but it's infinitely easier than it would be if there wasn't a laptop compartment

Size

Swissgear Getaway Backpack

(1/1)

It also doesnt feel all that durable. The fabric is thin and the zippers feel cheap. But like I said, I was willing to compromise on these things because the size and suitcase style entry were the most important things for me. The side compression straps are great for holding down a jacket on the outside of the bag, or hanging my travel pillow off of

Strap

Swissgear Getaway Backpack

(1/1)

Pack straps include a slit to slide it over the handle of my carryon so I could take it off my shoulder when I wanted. I can't over-recommend it.
