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

Zipper

Swissgear Getaway Backpack

(1/1)

I buy things for quality and for the price I paid, you’d think I’d get something of higher quality. The zipper for the main compartment is sharp on the back end. It unzips fine, but when you zip it back up, it gets caught on the fabric every once or so making it super hard to zip back up. I would return this, but I got it and paid for 1 day shipping as I have a work trip to go on tomorrow so this is really annoying for me to have a faulty piece and not be able to have the time to do anything about it

Laptop

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

Commute

Swissgear Getaway Backpack

(1/1)

This is great because it has a sleeve to slip over the handles of a suitcase making it easier to lug just one bag on and off trains, buses etc. It opens like a suitcase, making it easier to pack and not lose everything in the bottom of the bag. Quality seems good for the price and it's pretty light weight. I should be able to throw it on my back as long as I don't over load it

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.
