    Initial impression of HP Roller Backpack Model J6X32AA, 2 Oct. 2015

    This review is from: HP Roller Rucksack for Notebook Black/Grey 39,62 cm (15,6 Zoll) (Personal Computers)
    This review is for the HP Roller Backpack for Notebook Up To 39.6 cm (15.6 Inch) model J6X32AA.

    I have decided to share my first impressions here, as I found very little information. The backpack appears to be very well made and practical. Here is a brief description that also addresses a few comments I have read in other, mainly European, reviews. I think part of the reason is the that HP does not include any user description or manual to explain the features.

    The main function of this bag is, in my view, as a rolling bag with a medium sized laptop compartment. It can be used as a backpack for a shorter walk or maybe as you walk up stairs. The rear of the bag is more than sufficiently padded for this. The bottom has a internal portion of hard plastic that reaches about 1/3 up the back. This provides rigidity and support for the wheels and handle. Again, I find it well padded with good ventilation mesh and comfortable to wear. The trolley handle is hardly noticeable along my back.

    The handle feels sturdy and has 2 positions. The lower position is easily reached by pushing a small metal button when the handle is fully extended.

    A previous review mentioned a need for Velcro as the straps dragged on the ground. The rear of the backpack is created like a large pocket with two opening and a zip at the bottom. To use as a trolley, the shoulder straps are folded securely into the two pockets and when used as a backpack you open the zip to reveal a waterproof sheet. The sheet will wrap around the lower portion and the wheels to prevent your clothes from getting soiled.

    It has 3 main compartments, 2 smaller zipped side pockets with 2 open net pockets attached. The front compartment has 2 pen holders, a credit card sized zippered mesh pocket with another similar sized pocket behind. These are attached to a further almost A5 sized pocket. The compartment can easily hold a large book as well.

    The middle compartment has a padded pocket for the laptop, secured with a sturdy strap with Velcro. I would be useful if the Velcro strip was longer to allow for some adjustment. It can also hold 2 A4 sized binders or folders. The rear compartment is slightly more voluminous and can easily hold a thin jacket and a sweater. There is also a full length zip that reveals the trolley handle.

    The zipped side pockets are large enough to hold case for glasses or large phones like a Note or iPhone6. The mesh pockets are slightly smaller. A fairly standard 500ml water bottle is slightly too big for the zipped pocket.

    The 2 yellow loops? I can not think of a use. Decoration?

    I hope to attach pictures to illustrate the above descriptions.

    I find the weight of 1.79kg reasonable if you consider it as a rolling bag more than a backpack. It has more volume and weighs only 400g more than my sons Paddington Bear wheeled school bag PADDINGTON BEAR KIDS CABIN WHEELED BAG TROLLEY SUITCASE LUGGAGE BACKPACK it replaces.

    Hope this is of helps. I reserve the right to amend this first impression after a few months of use by my son at primary school 🙂

    Excellent features and value, not an in-your-face design or colourway, 10 July 2015

    The HP Backpack is ideal for almost any laptop with a 15.6-inch screen or smaller. It is obviously branded with the HP logo but that need not preclude its use with any other brand of machine. Apart from a laptop, it can also accommodate a smaller device, including a tablet such as Microsoft’s Surface 3 with its keyboard or anything remotely similar. The dedicated storage compartment is very well padded and so able to protect its contents from moderate knocks and incidents.

    Externally, the backpack features a seemingly endless number of zipped compartments, the largest and deepest at the back and getting progressively smaller towards the front. Consequently, there is space galore for school books, sports gear, work-related documentation and much more. Its smallest pockets could be used for a mobile phone, media player, wallet, travel documents etc.

    Construction and materials are to a high standard, apparently ballistic nylon or similar. It appears to be reasonably watertight and weather-resistant although zips are always a potential point of water entry although it should not be excessive unless out in torrential rain. In addition to the expected shoulder straps, there is also a carry handle affixed to the top which is fairly standard. This appears to be well reinforced and therefore unlikely to tear away from the body. The back of the pack is also fitted with some additional, breathable material to provide ventilation to the area of the body that will be covered and thus reducing perspiration and resulting discomfort it may cause.

    Described as ‘blue’, the colour is an almost black midnight blue and relates to a small proportion of highlighting, the remainder is black or a very dark grey and not as multi-toned as the illustration may suggest.

    The bag is quite soft to the touch, without a single hard panel anywhere and lightweight when empty. The larger front pocket, not the one almost immediately above the HP logo, but the one just behind that, is an organiser with space for pens, a mobile phone or calculater and other items and will accept an A4 folder or binder. There is a facility for a bunch of keys. The three largest pockets all have 3/4 zips so that access is quite easy, but you may not need to open them quite so fully. The adjustable shoulder straps are pleasingly wide and better able to support the weight of its contents without too much strain to the shoulders and there is more than sufficient strapping to accommodate anyone.

    As a multi-purpose carry-all, with protected storage for a laptop, tablet etc, it is fairly and competively priced. There is plentiful competition, especially at and around the £40 price point that are somewhat similar in style and nature, but this should deliver and well serve any purchaser although it does not have any especially outstanding or unique features. It appears to be likely to last for several seasons or years of use.

    Not as good as it could be, 10 July 2015

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What’s this?)
    I use a Wenger Swissgear Cobalt laptop rucksack to commute into work and for site visits every working day so I was particularly interested in this HP alternative. The image looked quite stylish and first impressions with the real thing were that it indeed looked quite good. But…..
    It seemed smaller than my( at time of review) less expensive rucksack and a quick comparison ( see photo of them side by side) confirmed the HP was indeed smaller and not as deep. The HP does not have a securing strap for the laptop which is simply inserted in the rear compartment. My photos have a laptop sitting in the rear compartment and an iPad in the tablet pocket within the second from rear storage area.

    The HP also has a couple more smaller zipped compartments but overall it did not offer the storage or flexibility of the similarly priced Swissgear.

    Another frustration was that I could not get it to easily sit upright unsupported. Sorry HP but the Swissgear sits unsupported, no matter what I put in it. These little things matter when you are using it as an essential part of your working day and want to place it easily beside you.

    In summary, this is a well made but rather disappointing laptop rucksack that is outshone in design, storage capacity and features by alternatives at a similar price. Ok but not the best.
