The bag is really good, but the color is not so good for me. I prefer the color that is more bright, but for this bag, it is too dark for young guys. I believe targus pay little on the appearance of their products. Anyway, the bag is really good for students, I can put my computer, books and lunch, anything esle in it. It is really large....more info
- This Backpack Has Been Thru A Lot
I've had this backpack for nearly three years. It has gone everywhere with me for work, not to mentioned three weeks in Baton Rouge & New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. It has been across the country and more via plane & automobile.
With all it has been thru, it still is in great shape.
Would highly recommend and I am thinking about retiring my current one and purchasing a new one....more info
- Have had it for 5 years!!!
This bag is wonderful (Targus RG0318 15.4 Gravity Backpack). It fits all of my school books and supplies, my laptop, my big purse, and not to mention all the other random things I have in there.
I've had it for over 5 years now and it still looks brand new - I have used it nearly everyday and it has traveled well on many plane rides (it fits nicely under the seat in front of you so you don't have to try to put it in the top cargo area)...more info
- worth it
bought it for my husband who is a marine biologist and its rather useful as to all it can carry and how comfortable it feels...more info
- Targus Notebook review
I'm kind of disappointed, the seams are coming apart at the zipper. I'm buying a new backpack, but not a Targus....more info
- Great backpack for teachers
I am a 5th grade teacher and wanted a backpack substantial enough to carry my laptop and a bunch of papers. This backpack is perfect for that. It has a solid bottom that allows the pack to stay upright, even when empty. It's got lots of pockets and plenty of places for me to put, and even categorize my assignments that need correcting. It's an easy wear too. No more slinging a laptop case over my shoulder and giving me neck pain. I would definitely recommend it if you need a large backpack that is high-quality....more info
- great backpack
This is a great backup there is lots of room for stuff, i think i fit a laptop, two notebooks, and some small things like folders and paper, it was heavy but it didn't rip.
My back gets kinda warm wearing this backup.
I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a laptop backpack, its even cheaper now then when i got it....more info
- Very nice Notebook Backpack
I had been carrying my notebook computer in a standard notebook case (not a backpack) and began deciding to leave my notebook at home instead of deal with the discomfort of carrying it through an airport or large building. Someone recommended that I try a Targus backpack, and I have not regretted switching a bit.
The RG0322 Matrix is a great Backpack. The shoulder straps are well padded and distribute the weight very well. There is plenty of room inside to hold everything I need to carry with me, while not causing my arms to ache after a short walk with it.
I know people with other brands of notebook bags that have had problems with zippers coming apart. The zippers on this bag seem to be very durable, and after using it for about 6 months I have no complaints with the quality of construction.
When traveling on quick overnight trips the bag is roomy enough to carry my notebook and all it's accessories, any paperwork I need for business meetings, clothes and toiletries. It wouldn't replace a suitcase for a long trip, but for the quick overnighter, this is not a bad bag.
I thought I would feel uncomfortable replacing my 'briefcase style' notebook bag with a backpack. I was concerned that it might not look as business-like as it could. After I bought the Targus backpack I started noticing how many other business travelers also carried notebook backpacks, and realized my concerns were wrong.
The Targus Matrix backpack is a great product at a reasonable price. If I had to go back and do it again, I would buy the same thing....more info
- Rebate problems
It is a nice product, but don't assume you will get the rebate without having to submit all your information more than once. If you use the rebate in calculating the cost, you are apt to be disappointed....more info
- Laptop Back Pack for Big Bellys
So far so good. I use if for business travel, mostly overnight and back trips. The compartmentalization is well thought-out. I am able to pack an extra shirt and slacks as well as my personal items without difficulty. Really helps speed through the security lines.
I like having the computer storage area in the inner most compartment (against my back) instead of in one of the outermost compartments like some of competitive products. Overall, it is a good product for the price.
- It's okay
I have been using this bag for a few years now while going to school. I carry a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop in it and it fits fine. One of the main pocket zippers separates sometimes (happened about 5 times in two years). Would be nice if there was a pocket to carry a water bottle....more info
- Backpack for keeps
I ordered this bag about a year ago for a friend. We were deployed and in that time it's very easy to accumulate lots of little gadgets and what nots. This bag is every thing that it seems and then some. There is more storage than a little bit and I now plan to order one for myself.
The slot for the laptop is sits between you bak and a front compartment for more storage so it is more than secure. And to keep everything organized we use the side pockets for the cords for all the devices tat we wrap up before placing in. I initially thought that the backup was a little overpriced but now I think that it is well worth every penny. There is more storage than anyone could ask for and he now uses it when traveling. The backup can be used for so many different things that it is a good buy for anyone; students, bike riders, frequent fliers. I am honestly amazed that the bag has even lasted as long as it has. Quality bag, ample storage, sturdy and well worth the buy. I will no wstick with this brand of bags because I know the product will be worth the deal....more info
- Backpack meets expectations
I have purchased a 15" Widescreen laptop a few months back and was looking for something new to carry the computer in. I previously used a computer carrying case, but felt this was limiting how much other stuff I could carry. With a rebate on Amazon available, this backpack was very attractive to buy. I went ahead, and I can't be happier. Again, I just wanted something to carry extra stuff in, and this provides many extra pockets and storage locations. Other people may have more specific needs than I, but if you just need something comfortable for carrying a laptop (up to 15") and a few other things, then this backpack is perfect....more info
- Great backpack
I am using this bag for school in which I need to carry 4 textbooks, a laptop (15.4 inch screen) and a couple of notebooks. The pack has plenty of room for these items and still a couple of empty front pockets for additional gear. With all that weight, the pack is still comfortable to wear and has yet to bother my back....more info
- Great laptop bag for an overnight trip
I've had this bag for almost a year now and I couldn't be happier with it. I don't use it for college as it is a little too big for me for everyday use(but then, I'm about 5 feet tall). This is a great bag if you're planning on an overnight trip (or a week long trip) and don't want to be bothered with a lot of luggage. I like to take my laptop everywhere I go and this is the bag I take on my weekend trips. It keeps the laptop secure and there's plenty of room for a few sets clothes and other odds and ends. It does not have the plastic supporters that's shown in the picture. But it does have a small partition in the main compartment, which can hold a big book(you can push this partition back if don't want to use it). It takes the weight off your shoulders.
Holds just about anything
Feels light on your shoulders
Has a waist strap (if ever you want one)
Can double up as a laptop-cum-overnight-bag
This is the only things I can think of - it's a little too big for everyday college use (it might work if you're tall and like to carry all your books with you)
Overall, I give it 5 stars because the only con that it has doesn't really bother me....more info
- Strong, comfortable and durable...
I've had this backpack for going on 2 years now, and it is still in excellent condition. The straps show no sign of tearing and there is only the very lightest fraying on some of the edges. It has also proven to be remarkably water resistant; good for rainy treks across campus. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality, and will buy from Targus again. It has lots of good pockets for students, without being overly complicated or cumbersome. Over my school career, this is my favorite bag. RECOMMENDED....more info
- This backpack didn't hold up
It's really roomy.... ample room for my old brick of a computer Dell 15" inspiron 6800 and my tiny HP NC6230. Good sized for overnight.
No compression straps when you have a smaller load to carry.
I ended up ripping the nylon on the bag accidently as it got hooked on the side of a gym locker. not as good as ripstop nylon.
The zipper "teeths" aren't secure/strong enough... the bag would separate at the zippers numerous times. Eventually, the zippers all broke loose in one night, even the separate zipper for the laptop.
- Excellent Bag with LOTS of Space
I bought this backpack to allow myself to travel around my college campus and keep all my books and supplies with me. This bag is more than up to the challenge.
It will carry 3 2" 3-ring binders, 3 textbooks, 1 lab manual, 1 personal book, an endless barrage of cables, cords, and accessories for my computer, pens, pencils, and just about everything you could possibly need. The front flap is elasticized, which makes it very convenient for carrying thin, light-weight items like the daily paper, or a spiral notebook. Targus recommends this space for a jacket, but I feel that this space is a bit small, especially in colder climates.
One word of caution, however. The bag will hold a large load, but be careful not to carry too much, as this bag can probably hold more than most people can carry....more info
- Very Good
Excellent product, exactly what I needed, not too big and not too short for 15' laptops....more info
I received this item torn and the seller didnt cover as much as they should for shipping(return). I would NOT order from them ever again...more info
- Targus RGS012 - Nice bag . (Amazon has confusing review interface)
NOTE on the interface first: Amazon's review system is really weird in this case where the drop-down selection is for *different* back-packs (unlike the usual where it's only a color scheme change). Like me, you might end up reading a review for a particular back-pack which is not really the one you are looking to buy, just because the reviews for all five bags are mixed up together and not filtered as per the back-pack selected.
This review is specific to the Targus RGS012 15.4 Slam Backpack. First off, the question in many prospective customers' minds are "will it take a 15.4" Wide Screen Notebook?" The answer is a resounding Yes. I got mine yesterday and I tried to fit in my Dell Inspiron E1505 15.4" WXGA Notebook. It fit like a glove - very snugly; neither too tight nor too loose. The velcro strap is also just right and is not too short as one other reviewer had mentioned. It's stretchable so I can't fathom what kind of a thick notebook would one be carrying nowadays that the strap can't easily accomodate. There's also room for a couple of magazines and/or file folders in the same compartment.
Contrary to what a reviewer mentioned elsewhere, the side pockets *can* accomodate a water bottle each albeit of the 20oz kind - provided you don't store anything else in the side pockets. Any bigger a bottle and you have to store it elsewhere -- the main compartment or in another bag's side pocket.
The middle compartment is spacious enough to fit in about 3 T-shirts and maybe up to two (max) trousers if you roll them up or fold them very neatly with some space to spare for your jockey shorts. In here too is a pocket for storing a 2-3 magazines (the thickness of Time, Newsweek or NatGeo).
You can fit in a bathing and hand towel and essential toileteries (toothbrush, paste, soap, shampoo, shaving kit, and maybe a spray-on can) in the third compartment - that would be really stretching it but it can handle it just in case you *really* need to have them along. But you can always transfer a few knick-knacks to either or both the side pockets. Like the other two compartments, this too has a pocket for storing a few magazines.
An aside: if you start using up ~all~ the pockets in the compartments for magazines AND fill it up with clothes / notebook etc it's gonna get very bulky for sure !!!
The outermost and final pocket is good for a portable media player, cell phone and maybe a few CDs alongwith your thumb drive - just be very careful that you don't end up crushing them while travelling or maybe leaning against a wall. There's no padding available.
The straps have some paddings on them but it may not be very comfortable if you're going full-load with the bag; personally I'd have prefered a slightly wider strap with thicker paddings.
In conclusion, the finishing and worksmanship on this bag is pretty decent and I have nothing to complain about. This is a good back-pack.

- Just arrived! Looks great!
I got this pack on a popular on line auction site for $27 plus $15 shipping. I read the reviews here and checked out photos. This pack looks really good. Lots of room for my 15 in wide screen, plus room for my three county map book (thick!) Plenty of handy compartments too. I bought this for road trips, but it looks sharp enough to use for business setting. I haven't had it but for a day, but I can say that it fits the widescreen 15.4 just fine, and it looks good. Maybe in a few months I can update the review. I can't wait to use it on my next road trip! ...more info
- Plenty of space and compartments.
Very good bag for being on the road with your notebook or even just for hicking. Would have been nicer if the front compartment could totally detach though - actually thought it did. Also very good for students in High school or the University. Caryy your notebook and school books all at once, with your MP3 Player. Has nice exit for headphones whilst player can stay in the bag front pouch.
- Big Bag
I go to school part time and I bought this to carry books and laptop when I go to school. This bag has a lot of room. So far it is holding the weight well. I only use it once a week. I use a different carrying case for daily use since I don't have to carry so much of stuff. This is a nice travel bag. I will not like to use it daily unless I have so much stuff to carry every day....more info
- Cool Bag!
This backpack bag is very well made and has many interior compartments. It is ergonomic and thus, gives a feel of even distribution of weight. Overall, its a good buy....more info
- Excellent product
I've owned this item for almost a full year and I am extremely pleased with it. It's so nice being able to carry around my laptop and my books in the same bag. The side pockets are kind of useless for them being so small, but I guess I'll be able to find a purpose for them. ...more info
- A great handycam for starters
its very light ....very small in size...fits exactly in your palm
has a great resolution...stores movie directly in MPG format...easy to use...no hassles in charging and other things...
so a perfect handycam...more info
- Excellent Quality and good number of pockets.
Targus Laptop Backpack is of excellent quality.
It fits my HP 15.4 inch Wide Screen laptop perfectly well.
There are plenty of pockets in the first and the second section.
Overall a good value buy.
- Pretty Nice Backpack
This backpack has served all the purposes I've hoped for. It's large enough to carry all of my law books as well as my 15.4-inch computer. I'm a little worried about it's lack of waterproofing because of the rain, but otherwise, a great backpack....more info
- awsome bag
I bought this bag to carry my laptop overseas and hopefully still have room for a few other things so i wouldnt have to use check in's. and its a great bag! hold all my gear. I work over seas on a drilling rig and keep most of my clothes on the rig so this lil beauty works great for transporting all of my things in one place ...more info
- good back pack
started using it about 1 month ago...simply like it...its very spacious and good for students.......more info
- Great laptop backpack
This backpack has more than enough space for what you need. I can carry my laptop, text books,notebooks, wireless mouse, and the power supply! I'm a college student so i carry alot of books and they are heavy, but the straps are padded so they take alot of the strain off your shoulders. ...more info
- Targus Backpack
this backpack has met my needs very well. Has great room and great pocket size for travel. different placement for pc would be nice but not necessary. would be nice to have a separate place for pc chord. Over all very pleased with this product...more info
- Good work/school bag
This review is for the Targus RG0322 15.4 Matrix pack, just so no one gets confused. I would recommend this pack to anyone who has to carry a laptop for any length of time. It is large enough to pack so much stuff into that it becomes difficult to carry. I can even fit in my gym outfit (including clothes, shoes, towel and water bottle). It is not for hiking as it lacks a chest strap and the side pockets are way to small for water bottles. They are just the right size for a lock for your gym locker, however. I like the cell phone pocket on the front and the additional D-ring for hanging other accessories. The headphone port is also nice, and the number of pockets is more than adequate. I don't have enough stuff to put in all the pockets! the handle is nice and sturdy and doesn't bite into your hand.
The only complaint that I have about this pack is I think there should be a stronger partition in between the laptop pocket and the rest of the bag. It should be some kind of hard plastic rather than the padded cloth that is there now.
Also, I like riding my motorcycle to work but the shoulder and girth straps are just a little bit too short. Which makes it a challenge to get it on over top my motorcycle jacket....more info
- After at least 2-3 years of daily use..
I ride a motorcycle almost every day... 14-15k/miles a year. About 75% of the time, I have this backpack. It doesn't cramp, doesn't swing around, and holds a LOT. I do, however, have a couple of complaints:
There are extra 'compression' buckles to make the backpack seem smaller. However, they're useless and flap around when you're going 70mph. I folded them inside the bag. There is also a waist strap that is too much of a pain. I folded it up and stuck the excess into side pockets (you don't even notice it).. you know, I might as well cut them off.
It has 3 main pockets. I'd prefer the small 'laptop' pocket left alone (room for a laptop or a little more) and the other two combined into one huge pocket....more info
- Going on 6+ years and counting
Like the title says, I've had this for 6-7 years and it's been through 3-4 countries (checked in, not carried on). Since it's old, I've been particularly abusive with it and it's still good as new. I'm amazed that it's lasted this long when other laptop backpacks have fallen apart within a year or two. As much as I'd like an excuse to get another laptop bag, this thing will not break. ...more info
this backpack is way better than i thought it would be. more room that expected, easy access, wide pockets and more pockets than i thought too.
a great buy for anyone who needs to carry a lot of stuff....more info
