Targus Air Traveller Backpack

What need is this bag attempting to fill?

This bag has a unique patent pending system shown below :

As you can see, the bag "divides" through the middle, allowing laptop checks without needing to remove the laptop from the bag.

Beyond this rather unique feature this bag is for 16" laptops. In addition to the separate laptop compartment there is a special compartment for files, a quick access front pocket, storage for a phone and several accessory pockets plus two external water bottle pockets. The main storage area is big enough to hold two thick hardcover books.

At two pounds when empty, this bag is comparatively lightweight

What need is this bag NOT attempting to fill?

The main material of the bag is durable polyester and this holds up pretty well. Most of the complaints are about the inconsistent quality of the stitching, mostly in the shoulder strap area. Some users have had the stitching come loose to the point that they had to undertake repairs. Other users have seen hard usage of the bag for years with no problems.

Regarding the easy airport check feature, users have found it very convenient for U.S. airports only; be prepared for foreign airports to ask you to take out your laptop.

Some other stuff about this bag

It's the luck of the draw with the Targus Air Traveller. You can get a a tough bag that will keep you company for years. On the other hand, if your luck runs out and you get bad quality stitching, the bag will only be good for a few months - unless you have the iffy stitching repaired.

Get the Targus Air Traveller from Amazon.
