We’ve seen and used a lot of Swiss Gear laptop bags as they seem to have the market cornered on providing branded bags for corporations. With that being said, it really boggles our mind how poorly Swiss Gear International Carry-on Size Laptop Bag With Portable Pocket Charger handles.
Swiss Gear International Carry-on Size Laptop Bag With Portable Pocket Charger is the only bag that allows you to custom fit the padded laptop pouch so if you’ve got a MacBook Pro 15-inch that you’re going to upgrade to 16-inch soon, this might be a handy feature.
But you need to be mindful when you pull your laptop out as the edges of the bag will catch on your laptop and force you to drop your laptop back into the pouch. The pouch also sits at the bottom of the bag so you’re basically dropping your laptop onto the ground or whatever surface the bag is sitting on.
Swiss Gear International Carry-on Size Laptop Bag With Portable Pocket Charger is made from polyester which does a great job of absorbing water. This version of the bag comes in a color palette of black.
There is a slot for your tablet, located in the front pocket but the limpy handles more often than not get in the way slot which is annoying.
Out of all the bags we’ve used over the last few months, Swiss Gear International Carry-on Size Laptop Bag With Portable Pocket Charger has the largest carrying capacity. There are two large zippered compartments and one smaller though that’s a relative description given that the small compartment is where the tablet sits.
There are lots of dividers to help organize your documents. The dividers aren’t attached to the bottom of the bag, so if you put smaller object into the dividers, they’ll end up pooling at the bottom of the bag.
The only thing we had trouble carrying around were our Studio3’s as every pocket seemed to be too small for the headphones.
Overall, using the bag isn’t great. The limpy handles, coupled with the tiny strap and giant bag makes the entire setup very awkward. As a side note, the limpy handles tend to twist on itself so that’s a good look. Oh, and the luggage handle slot, is nothing to write home about.
The final kick to the face is the price. Swiss Gear International Carry-on Size Laptop Bag With Portable Pocket Charger is almost $70 USD which makes it the second most expensive bag I reviewed but the worst performing one.
