Wenger has been around since 1893, where they were first known for manufacturing Swiss Army knives. Contracted by the Swiss Army specifically for these knives, Wenger was one of only two manufacturers trusted for this job. In 2005, the second manufacturer, Victorinox, bought and merged the companies but kept the name Wenger to continue manufacturing products using that name. Swiss Gear backpacks are now manufactured under this new company alongside knives, watches, and a variety of other products. Swiss Gear backpacks are backed by the experience and knowledge of the long-established Wenger company.
Wenger backpacks are made to fit a variety of laptops and notebooks to meet the needs of students, professionals, and all of those in-between.. Crafted for the consumer, these laptop bags are perfect for everyday life with their innovative designs, versatility and travel convenient capabilities.
All Swiss Gear backpacks are quality made with padded shoulder straps to evenly distribute the weight of empty or full backpacks along your body for maximum comfort. Each backpack is equipped with a stabilized base to keep your bag standing upright, which prevents your bag from falling over and damaging any of the items inside. The backs of these backpacks are made with breathable, padded material to allow extra comfort and airflow.
Most backpacks include a padded pocket for an iPod/MP3 player, often with headphone port holes, so you can carry your small devices when traveling as well. Accompanied with mesh side pockets for water bottles or other items you wish to keep on the outside of your bag, these bags are crafted for all of your needs.
Different backpack models fit different sized laptops. Alongside the features that every bag is built with, each different model has some unique features to make it stand out from the rest. Here are a few of the main differences between each of these bags:
Backpacks range in weight from 1.2 kg (2 lbs 10 ounces) to 1.9 kg (4 lbs 3 ounces) so they are light when empty and not adding an excess of extra weight for you to carry around. Some styles even come in multiple colors to fit your taste.
Every Swiss Gear backpack is backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the same warranty Werner gives on the rest of their products such as the Swiss Army knives and watches, so you can be confident in your purchase of Swiss Gear backpacks.
