Review: Targus 17” Citylite II Ultimate Backpack


It’s my first time to use Targus but I’ve always hear the brand from my friends. Targus celebrated their 30th year of service last year. It has always been a high quality product which offers a perfect combination of style, versatility and protection.Targus 17” CityLite II Ultimate Backpack is perfect for those travelers who bring their laptop or gadgets with them in their trip. I brought this bag when I visited Bicol over the holiday.



It has four main compartments where you can put your stuff. A dedicated compartment for tablets like iPad or Tab is included in this bag. You can also put water bottles and umbrella on the side pockets which is perfect to give you an ease of access.



1. The biggest compartment is for your laptop and tablet. It has a dedicated pocket for your iPad/Tab but since I didn’t bring one I choose to put my notebook instead. Up to 17’ laptop is fitted in the laptop compartment, it is fully padded space which will surely protect your laptop.


2. The second compartment has a spacious depth among all the compartments. You can put your gadgets and tablets here because it has a pocket dedicated for tablets. Since it is spacious, you can put your pouches, traveling kits or even a clothing here.


3. The third compartment have many pockets for your stuff. It has a advanced workstation which will organized your pen, keys, cards and more.


4. The fourth compartment is the smallest. It can hold your extra coins, shades and etc. I put my sunblock here so I can always get it easily.
