Targus CityGear Chicago Backpack Case for 16-Inch Notebooks, Black (TCG650) (Personal Computers)

Targus CityGear Chicago Backpack Case for 16-Inch Notebooks, Black (TCG650) Targus CityGear Chicago Backpack Case for 16-Inch Notebooks, Black (TCG650) available on September 23 2018 from Amazon for 57.34
3.0 out of 5 stars
I bought this backpack in 2009 and it was great and lasted 5-6 years. When I was ready to buy a new one, I noticed that some Amazon reviewers had said that the quality of this backpack had gone down, but I hoped for the best and bought it anyway, given that I had such a good experience in the past. But the reviewers were correct. I bought my second one in 2015, and immediately I noticed that the materials were not as solid as on the older bag. I've had mine now for 1.5 years and it definitely needs replacing - time to get a different bag this time. This bag is great for carrying a lot of stuff though.

   I like everything about this bag except the strap. I didn't pay close attention to it when I ordered it because I've owned cheaper bags with better straps. The strap on this bag is fixed (it doesn't swivel) so the strap can easily get twisted. The strap buckle is plastic, as well. I would be much more satisfied with the bag if it had a metal buckle/clip system that had a swivel contraption, like most bags do. I think this is because this is labeled a messenger bag and most messenger bags do not have the swivel clasp type of strap. Everything else about the bag is fine and it has a lot of storage capacity. I don't blame the manufacturer for the strap situation as I should have researched it more and looked more closely. Just a forewarning for others looking to purchase this bag.***UPDATE JUNE 13 2017*** Well, the plastic 'ring' on the side of the bag that holds the strap cracked and broke. I can't use a replacement strap because the other side of this bag has the strap sewn...Read more

On the picture you see a solid and strong almost a case-like product, but in reality it feels like pieces of cheap cloth attached to each other in clumsy manner. Also on the pictures here you see a bottle holder on the side, which I couldn't find in my delivery. Also on the second picture here you can see two zips meeting on the top of the bag, so you can lock it with a padlocks, but the one I ordered ("Miami" style) doesn't have this option (so this picture belongs to the "New York" style bag not the "Miami"). I would still give it 3 or may be even 4 stars, if not the packaging...It came in a huge box (which is fine) but when I opened this box I found out that my product is inside it absolutely "naked" (without any plastic bag and not even warped with paper). I took it out and found several dusty spots on it and it felt a bit battered. I have feeling that the bag I received was used by someone and returned to the seller and then they sold it...Read more
