Will etch scratches into a soft or glossy laptop finish
It's ALMOST a very well designed bag. One stupid design flaw exists. The soft red fabric in the laptop "pocket" is trimmed with tough cordura nylon fabric. It tore the hell out of the soft finish on the lid of my once beautiful $2000 workstation laptop (An HP Zbook). I bought this bag to protect my laptop. And it permanently etched scratches into the finish. What a shame. Why tough nylon in a soft pocket? It defeats the purpose of having the soft fabric there in the first place.
Excellent Bag, One critique!
This is a great bag. It replaced my North Face Recon. It is a Great size and plenty of pockets for organization. Fits my laptop and electronics perfectly and still room for a change of clothes and toiletries. The bag seems to be well built and durable.
THE DOWN SIDE: is that the adjustable shoulder straps are too short. There should have been 6"-8" more webbing on each of the adjustable shoulder straps. I am not a big person, (I am a Slim Build), but when wearing a winter jacket it is difficult to get on my shoulders even with the straps adjusted all the way out.
It could also use a key clip.
I would highly recommend this bag but if you are a larger person, you may want to consider something different.

Can you make a women size ?
I love this pack has so many organization pockets, but it is too high and too heavy for women.
Can you make one for one size smaller, lighter and make it as "Checkpoint Friendly" pack ? Then, It will be the PERFECT pack in the world !

Best International Backpack ever
I travel often with my job and this backpack has held up to over 60 thousand international air miles. I can carry everything that I need for my flight as well as the items I need to do my job once I land onsite. Everything, from iPad, laptop, noise cancelling headphones, reading material, chargers, wireless mice, mifi, battery packs, network cables and network toners, international charging adapters and converters and still have room for snacks. The bag is well built, sturdy, and nicely designed. Once you feel the material you'll immediately know it will last a long time. This bag is exactly what I was looking for and more. My only gripe is that there isn't a clip to store car keys away like my previous bags. I stopped by Home Depot and picked up a carabiner small enough to fit through the zipper above the passport holder and voila!
Best backpack I've owned!
I've only be using the pack for a while but find myself continuously appreciating all the compartments and the quality of this backpack. I understand some people didn't read the " select thin 17" laptops" part but my 15" rMBP fits with room to spare both in depth and width. I love the pocket on the shoulder strap for my phone too because when it's not in use it's invisible and doesn't bother me.

Personally I like the quality of this backpack and it is a great size for school and traveling. I actually purchased my Ogio bag at Winers at a more affordable price ($60). I was very happy with the amount of pockets and compartments this bag had. Many people dislike this bag because of the laptop pocket being too small, however I find it a great fit for my 16" laptop. I also must say that the crush proof vault is very nice. In my opinion it's a great product.

Really disappointed after such high hopes
Advertised as a 17inch laptop bag, however that is NOT the case. Whats truly terrible though is the dimensions on the laptop pocket say 15.5" x 10.5" WHAT THE #$%^. I wish i would have noticed that instead of the 17 they not only put in the model name but the tags on it that advertise 17 as well. great material, really light, awesome bag, really wanted this one and now im really mad that it doesn't fit. Browsed the OGIO website and there sizing is not very accurate. WATCH OUT
Renegade RSS 17
First, I have to say this to all of those students who bought this backpack: Who in the hell carries a 17" Laptop along w/ all of their heavy books to school? Maybe, ya'll should look into 15" laptops and/or mini-notebooks. Tablets come to mind.
IMHO, Ogio only makes 3 great backpacks; other than the one for us bikers, that are great for college students. And they are the Tribune 17, Bandit 17, and RSS 17. I like these bags because they have waterbottle holders, media pockets, laptop/tablet sleeves and most of all a pocket for my sunglasses. But my only complaint is that the RSS 17 is way TOO EXPENSIVE! I mean who in the hell has the $$ to shell out for that kind of backpack? I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars due to its high price tag.

Advertised to fit 17" laptop and I have a very slip MSI GS70 laptop that fits with room to spare in all other bags. This bag, can't zip around the corners of the laptop. Looks to be $125 wasted as I can't carry my laptop. Not happy. What sucks is, other than that, the bag is amazing and the quality is top notch. Super light, great construction, great materials, pocket layout is fantastic. Just can't use it!
