Default I have a question about a laptop backack

Hi all, I need some help with a product, but noone I know has it, and the reviews I have read is a mixed bag.

I have been looking at the Pegasus by Wenger/Swissgear, and it looks like it is sturdy and roomy, but I'm not sure.

I have a 17" laptop, a digital camcorder, a digital still camera, and a portable audio track recorder. I travel alot, and would like to fit all of my gear, the accessories (lens, memory cards, power cables) comfortable and securely into one case, instead of having to lug three to four cases around with me.

If anyone has used this product, or knows of a better one for around the same price, please let me know. Thank you.

Not sure but my laptop bag has had a Ps3/17inch laptop/2 games/portable harddrive in before and it fits perfect.


this would fit in a ps3 and a laptop http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...500_AA280_.jpg

but about your digital camcorder, i mean I'd have to know the size, google your make and model of cam and click images and get your cam pic and copy the link into here.

Here is my Camcorder:

And my Digital Still Camera with both the wide angle and the telephoto lenses:

I would also like to be able to keep all of the power cables and the A/V cables in the same bag too. They'll take one pocket by themselves. Also, due to the ergonomics of the bag, I would like to try and avoid a shoulder strap, as they wear on your shoulder after awhile.

If anyone is wondering what the Pegasus looks like, here is a picture of that as well:

I know, which is why I'm trying to find the right bag for the job. Last thing I want to do is put it all in a bag that won't protect them.

you almost need a camping bag with a rigid frame
then suspend the gear
so if you put it down hard
it wont smack the ground

yes but he wants a cam and everything in it, your best bet is to get a 2 strapped bag and put something soft at the bottom of it, such as cutt a pillow in half and shove it in the sides and at the bottom of something olike this:

it will protect it will with pillows in, cut them in half and shove them in, thats what I would do anyway if i had 2gands worth of equipment shoved in their.
