Targus 17.3” Strike II Gaming Backpack

Happy New Year to you all, I’m back with the reviews for 2023 and starting with the Targus 17.3” Strike II Gaming Backpack. This versatile backpack can protect your laptop (up to 17.3″ in size) and comes with multiple storage pockets to easily carry around any charger and accessories that you’ll need.

The back area and straps are heavily padded for comfort, the straps are also fully adjustable to suit your needs, with a Sternum strap for added stability, you get two water bottle pockets too, so no excuses for being dehydrated.

Internally, there’s a strap to hold a pair of headphones too. Overall, you get a generous 27L capacity backpack, plenty of room for everything you could possibly need or wish to carry.

So, what is the backpack like? Time to test it out!

One thing you instantly notice when fully laden with goods is the comfort. The added Sternum strap ensures the backpack doesn’t move removing chaffing.

You’ll also be pleased to hear the mesh on the back aides airflow, which prevents you from sweating too. An additional elasticated strap on the back allows you to slide the backpack onto your rolling suitcase trolley.
