The Wenger 601072 Link 16″ backpack is a great business style bag. It’s designed for traveling in mind, having one of those pass through sleeve on the back of the bag, for sliding over the tow handle of your towed luggage.
The material is a nice thick polyester that looks really durable, and it looks like it could withstand a good amount of rain. The bag also has some really nice leather touches on the shoulder straps and the grab handle of the bag.
Compartment wise, there are 4 main compartments. Firstly, a padded laptop compartment which within it, there is a pocket to hold a tablet such as an ipad. I should mention that backing of the tablet pocket has a nice velvety feel to it (for scratch protection I assume). Second compartment – the main storage one. It has a padded base that you can fold up or down depending if you want to keep shape of the width of not. It’s a really good size, can definitely get a pair of jeans and a couple of tops in there easily. On the top of this compartment, there is a small zipped netted pocket which you can use for electronic device cables. The front zipped compartment – this has a smartphone sized pocket, again backed in a velvet material, several card type pockets and a pen pocket. There is also zipped compartment here for you to store you’re important things like your passport. Lastly, there is a zipped pocket on the top of the bag. I thought this was solely for a pair of sunglasses but it’s actually quite deep. It would probably take 3 pairs of sunglasses in there. For me it’s s quite handy for storing items you need quick access to.
verall, I’m really impressed with the build quality, it looks amazing. It certainly looks like it was built to last, my previous backpack – Samsonite Guard 2.0 only lasted 5 months and it started to tear at the seams – definitely not going to buy a Samsonite backpack again.
