Final Thoughts

The main selling point of this new bag is that it is both a laptop bag and a backup rolled into one. I know that you could argue that other laptop bags could always have stored your non laptop related stuff in the bag, but this bag goes that one step further and actually gives you pockets and other things to make that easier.

Tucked inside the back of the bag is a hook that can easily be moved into position so that you can hang your bag from a locker rail. You can then open up the bag fully so that you can access the contents, which makes life a lot easier. You can store your clothes, laptop, phone, chargers, wash kit, a lots of other things too.

There’s even a special shoe compartment so that you can keep your shoes separate from the rest of your stuff.

Each of the compartments have a little logo on them so you can easily tell what they are for. For example, the shoe compartment has a little shoe (kind of obvious) and one for your wash kit (as you can see in the pictures above). There’s even a dirty laundry bag included – how useful is that!!! Nice one Targus!

The laptop part of the back is specially lined to add an additional layer of protection for your laptop, not only from the outside world but from whatever you might be carrying in the bag.

The bag is very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time too, and can easily be adjusted to give you the maximum amount of comfort.

The Work + Play Fitness 15.6″ Laptop Backpack from Targus is available now priced around £64.99 and comes in either Black/Yellow or Grey.
