Galaxy, which usually means it’s a cheap knock-off made in China.
These are exact look-alikes of Swissgear backpacks though. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re actually the exact same.
Woot says Amazon Prime members get free shipping. I just ordered one and had to pay $6.00 shipping and handling.
And that was with logging in with Amazon?
Here’s a few things to try:
- Log out of Woot and log in using the Login with Amazon button.
- On the checkout page, check “use this address”.
- If you are using Microsoft Edge, switch to Chrome or FireFox.
- Clear cookies for Amazon & Woot.
- Allow cookies from Amazon & Woot.
- Allow pop-ups; turn off pop-up blockers.
- Log out and back in on Amazon, especially if you’ve changed anything there (e.g. cards, email, etc.),
- Try an incognito or private mode in your browser.
If you get it to work, feel free to cancel the incorrect order.
If you can’t get it to work, you can always reach out to CS and have them help you with the $6 (plus relevant shipping tax).
Hi what’s the size of the compact backpack? From the name and pic i am assuming it’s smaller than the others. Thanks!
I got the Professional and the Tactical. Sizes are the same, features are different. There is a divider in the main compartment. The Pro divider is nicely padded. The Tactical is neoprene (wet suit) material, So thinner. The Tactical has a pair of sewn loops outside. Useful if you have molle pouches or want to hang a solar battery. The Pro has a padded zipper pouch. It also has a pair of straps to attach a small tube,umbrella, tripods or the like.
Both have bottle pockets and compression straps on both sides. If you want to carry something longer and thin it can go there.
Both have top handles.
A standard 3 ring binder will fit the larger compartment. Hope this helps.
Looks like you need to stop in at this topic:
How much does it weigh, empty, please?
(I suppose different versions will be a little different, so please say which version you’re talking about, if possible.)
they all weight roughly about 32 ozs (2 lbs)
If you were going to pick just one between the two, which would you buy?
Faded stars is nice
Overall I’d get the Pro. Better padding. The one negative is the smaller compartment has a single pull zipper.
Mine came in today as SuierGear
My tactical showed up today and I would say, in the brief time I’ve had to look it over, that it’s a great bag for $17. The tag hanging off of it says its a Suiergear brand bag which I can’t find any information on but when you look at the warranty inside the card it mentions Swisswin which is available from various online retailers. It fits comfortably on my back, I’m 5’8 but over 250lbs, but I do wish the actual shoulder straps were longer so that the release wasn’t up almost at my underarm. For drone enthusiasts out there I can comfortably fit my Mavic Air 2 Fly More, my Mini2 Fly More, 2 tablets and brackets all in the main compartment and haven’t even touched the smaller front pocket, mesh pouches or used the loops yet. It feels very well-built for an under $20 bag but I would put this in the $30-40 range at most, not the $80 listed. I might pick up another just because of the price.
" * 18" Long x 14" Wide. Can fit a Laptop or Tablet with up to 19" Screen"
This is a lie. I have a 17" screen laptop, and it BARELY fits, and won’t fit in the laptop padded area. If I dropped this bag with my laptop in it, it would get damaged.
Very disappointed. I bought this thinking my 17" would fit fine.
the laptop in the above images is 17" and it fits fine, are you sure your placing it in the laptop compartment?
I came on here to say the same thing. Neither of the two models I bought fit my 17” laptop in the laptop compartment. It can at least slide into the laptop compartment on the professional model, but the zipper can’t even close over the corners of the laptop. A 17” laptop can’t even slide into the laptop compartment in the faded star model.
Neither model can actually hold a 17” laptop, other than using the main, unpadded compartment, which doesn’t offer any real protection.
I can’t imagine someone ever fitting a 19” tablet or laptop in to either of the models I bought.
I bought these to fit a 17” laptop and neither one does that. Ready to return and get my money back.
Much smaller than advertised. Very disappointed. Do not get for larger laptops.
Agree… where did they get 19 inch laptops? Not good for my 17 inch one
must be an odd wide screen version.
