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.

Best bag I had
This the best bag I had ever!
Thank you so much for this one!
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!
Bummed Out Customer here OGIO.
Pros: Very protective, Extremely durable, Plenty of pockets, stylish, heavy duty zippers, laptop pocket is absolutely amazing,
Cons: Heavy, a little smaller than expected but it stretches out, for some reason the straps are SO short, I'm 13 and the straps are perfect/tiny bit small, maybe just my bag but still strange
Review: I have been using this back since August 2013, it has been everywhere with me, school, New York City, CA, Vermont, my motocross races with my camera stuff, so i am giving this bag a very fair review. So it is very durable, haven't even had a loose thread in the 8 months i have been using it so that is fantastic. I am an avid photographer/videographer so i use this bag to carry most of my gear when i go on Vacations along with my 13 inch Macbook which brings me to the laptop compartment. it is great, very tight but you want it to be, the "suspension" thing seems to be working well. although i don't think setting down my backpack would break my laptop it is still nice to know that i can drop it and everything will be okay. it has many pockets and most of them are labeled for what they are designed to carry but if it fits in the pocket you can put anything you want in it. The zippers feel very sturdy and durable, they use a few different size sippers throughout the bag and they all feel very sturdy. The back has a very nice look to it despite the horrid photo on the olio website that makes it look very round, it looks much better in person in my opinion. The bag is very heavy, which if you are carrying the bag around all day much like i do it can be a strain on the back, however it does have very thickly padded straps and the flat back of the backpack is very comfortable so the weight is subdued by the design. The straps on my bag are very short, i have them fully extended and they are barely able to reach a comfortable spot, i honestly don't know if its just my bag because if you are above 6 feet there is no way your gonna be able to wear this bag the way i do, and I'm 5'10. the bag was a little smaller than i expected it to be, however it did stretch out and i use it like i would any other bag. so over all it is a very close to perfect bag, ogio if you could make the straps quite a bit longer and lower the weight of the bag it will be unbeatable. but as it is right now it is an amazing bag and if you use a backpack a lot and have the money to spend this bag will make your life easier.
I really picked this bag up because it just looks awesome. It holds my
Samsung Ativ 9 Lite (13.3") nicely. Overall the bag is an eye catcher and does stand out, which I like...Great Bag Ogio...
