Not sure who the actual bag manufacturer is but this pack is virtually identical in every detail to the Swiss Army packs we bought at least 5 years ago at SAMs for $39.99. Soon after the bags they sold changed to a less useful design.

These bags are TANKS. Two of them made it through 4 years of college life completely unscathed. Padding and pockets everywhere. Huge carrying capacity and excellent for a carry-on bag. Large base means if you have it loaded, it will stand up on floor. The top handle is nicely shaped and a lot more comfortable to carry than a simple canvas variant.

@commodog: branded that way, yes. I could post a picture of identical feature details and Swiss Army brand on my packs as well.

@commdog and @bluemaple...I have this exact pack sitting next to me branded as swiss gear, purchased from Sams as bluemaple described. Regardless of brand...this thing is a tank as stated. It's been with me in every state in the country except HI and all the Canadian provinces carrying 30+ lbs of laptops and parts the whole time. I'm in for another for my personal laptop.

Not a TSA Checkpoint friendly bag, for those of you who fly.

@dryboy: That's ok. I'm not TSA friendly either.

@dryboy: I've never seen a TSA checkpoint-friendly backpack. If you know of one, I'd love to see it. I have a checkpoint-friendly briefcase that I am mostly happy with but something else might be nice for work from time to time.

I also have the Swiss Gear one mentioned earlier that is available at Sam's online and recently had some stitching redone on the straps. Otherwise still going strong - used almost every day and almost 4 years old now. Also, is a scan smart bag so handy at airport.

too bad, mine wouldn't have fitted. Little did I know what I was doing getting a 17 in 'top ;(

Seems they pulled one over on us. I ordered this as well as several of my co-workers. None of us are happy with what we received. Cut off wiring running into the pockets, mis-matched zippers on the compartments (heavy weight zippers on the small pockets, tiny cheap zippers on the main compartments), etc. Seems like they marketed this as a "famous maker," but sent some crappy knock offs.
