Excellent, heavy-duty bag for large laptops
Reviewed in the United States on June 30, 2019
I needed a large bag for my ancient 17” HP dv7 laptop and assorted equipment and this bag fit the bill perfectly. I was looking at purchasing a Swiss Gear bag but stumbled upon this Kroser bag as a Lightning Deal and I am extremely happy to say I do not regret purchasing it. Let me say, this bag is absolutely incredible – especially when you consider the fact it cost less than $35 on sale.
The bag is extremely well built – it’s made of the heavy duty “ballistic-type” fabric that can take a beating whether you’re hiking or commuting to work or school. It is extremely spacious with a multitude of pockets. My laptop measures almost 16.5” and fits easily in the bag: I’d say there’s an extra 1.25” or so of space for the laptop corners to fit easily. The laptop compartment itself is 2.5” wide at the bottom, so you can carry a laptop and a thin book or sketch pad, and there’s also a pocket for a tablet or thin monitor up to 11.5”x15” or so.
As for the rest of the bag, there’s a hardshell pocket at the top by the carrying handle with soft material for sunglasses, another wide compartment measuring 5.5” deep with a zippered pocket and a large pocket where you can add folders and such and it also has a Type-A male USB cable that runs to an external connector. Another compartment has a multitude of smaller pockets including RFID slots as well as a quick-detach key ring holder. There’s a smaller, zippered compartment at the very front of the bag that has a pocket as well. Finally, there are external, tall, zippered pockets where you can store tall water bottles or a foldable umbrella – each side also has mesh pockets.
The carrying handle at the top is bolted to the bag and is composed of a steel cable and is heavily padded. The shoulder straps are very wide and extremely well padded, which will make carrying a heavy bag a lot less painful. There is also a well-padded zippered pocket at the bottom rear of the bag that will sit comfortably against your lower back.
This is a very well made bag that measures up very well against more expensive bags and I highly recommend it. As a Lightning Deal, it was ½ the price of a comparable Swiss Gear bag and it was simply a no-brainer to purchase it.
