CONTEST: Win an OGIO Renegade RSS 17 backpack!



My favorite feature is definitely the laptop compartment that is sure to fit my 15 inch Retina Macbook Pro that won't fit in my current backpack. Hope you guys pick me!

Has pockets for many of my devices! Would be perfect on roadtrips, vacations, and camping ;). Would be awesome to pack my gadgets in there!

What is there not to like.

But the ergonomics are what I really like about this. With all the gear you can load into this, if you don't have proper support and padding, you will have back pains!

I think the best part about it is that it has a pocket for everything. Separate spots for a laptop and an iPad are key!

Would love to win this and make traveling for my job so much easier! Carrying a laptop, projector and other necessary attachments this would make me ditch my rolling carry on and make this that much more fun to go through security.

OK so watched the video look's great very rugged Super easy access. i would love one.. thank you. IMORE.....................................

Having pockets for both my iPad and my laptop is key. Having them both protected and in a set place in my bag would be awesome.

would love one and the best feature has to be the storage so many pockets for so many items. would love one . :)

I like that it has so many dedicated pockets for electronic/computer accessories. I travel a lot for work and this would be a fantastic bag. I also love that it has a sternum strap! My current computer backpack is not this nice.

Seems strong to carry all my gadgets. My "MADE IN CHINA" backpack left me today with my laptop on the floor, in the middle of the Street. Any other reason to want a new one?.

Rugged is so needed when you have 8 year old twins! That and the fact that the pack can be loaded down with my stuff and theirs, and you have a great tool. Thanks for the opportunity.

I love the flexibility that this backpack has. It is very well thought out and has a spot for everything. This would make a great addition for my birthday trip to Europe this month!!

i like it because of amount of storage it has and the compartments, but I think my favorite feature is the pocket in the strap for my phone, which would also hold my train tickets and/or work badge and save me from having to swing it around and take it off my back to get to them... the small things that make a huge difference.

It looks like it would work real well to haul a bunch of stuff around in a safe, secure and efficient way.

all the backpacks from Ogio are awesome. but this is a masterpiece for my use case. the ipad space is pretty useful.

I LOVE this backpack. It looks cool and rugged, great organization, lots of compartments for everything I travel with everyday for school and work or the gym. It also looks comfortable. It's exactly the backpack I've been looking for to replace my run down Swiss Gear.

I want it because it looks awesome and because of that padded iPad pocket (which I don't have in the backpack I currently use)

I really love the ability to store your gadgets in a special hard case, and then the phone compartment in the strap is amazing I would love it for these features but I'm not gonna lie that water bottle storage caught my attention the most lol

The bag can hold a lot. I was very surprised when I saw the video and saw all the storage opportunities it has. I want one. I know exactly what I will put in each pocket. It's a great looking bag.

In my eyes, the separate iPad pocket, along with an easy place to store my eye glasses (on the top of the bag...nice!) are just two of the features that make the Renegade RSS 17 a winner.

I really like the amount of pockets and storage available, I could use it for work and fill it with everything I need!

I have an old Adidas backpack but I haven't found one worthy that I could afford. Winning one would meet the second part - pick me!

The straps look real comfortable and the component sections offer nice protection and utility for a wide variety of tech and non-tech items. This is a real nice backpack.

Between using my bike and public transportation, my laptop can be jostled around quite a bit. I love the introduction of a "shock-absorber" system for the laptop pocket! Overall appears to be a well thought out design. :o)

Definitely the fact that there are separate compartments for all my stuff. This will be great the next time I travel, pick me!!

I love being organized so having a specific pocket for everything in the book-bag that I use on a daily basis would be amazing!

Its unique. No other bag is like this one. Awesome features!! I can use it for my work, weekend outing and even on a Trek. Serves all purpose!

I've been a long time Brenthaven user, but the features of this backpack are making me seriously consider switching teams. Love to be able to do a side-by-side comparison of the two.

Its different. Can carry all my iDevices and accessories and still have room for other stuff. Perfect timing, I am actually in the market for a backpack.

A great looking bag with lot of utility. I like. I want it! Would be fantastic to get my hands on this cool items to cary my gear around in the big apple.

I have a 17" MacBook and a backpack that I got when I had a 15", so there's that. :-(

And hey, Armored laptop compartment seems lined with goodness.

Yes I have been needing a new "gadget bag" for work! The extra shock absorbtion in the laptop area would be a welcome addition. Thanks iMore and OGIO!!!

Being the gadget nerd that I am, I love laptop bags with many compartments and the OGIO certainly fits the bill.

Well thought out for the tech gadget orientated geek!!! I love to be organized and have a place for everything, that is why I would like to win this back pack. Thanks

I could really use a nice new backpack like this one. My current bag is suffering from a bit of road rash. The streets in Winterpeg can get a bit slippery this time of year.

I love OGIO. I have a couple travel luggage bags and I love them. This I e would be perfect for my class I teach and use a laptop, ipad and projector. And I have to carry some extras and this thing would be perfect! Totally could utilize this to the fullest.

It has spots for all of my tech, keeping it safe, plus keeping all my important documents while traveling. Nice giveaway contest iMore!

Wow, they really spent a lot of time thinking about all the things we have to carry. They have a pocket and place for everything. Very protective. And, it looks like it's tough enough to handle a busy life. And, even the chest strap position adjusts, which the ladies will like. Very thorough. I want one! :-)

i love the "Crush proof Tech Vault pocket with soft tricot liner." i wanted to get a thule for their crush proof compartment. i didn't know anyone else was putting these in their bags.

this would be great to have, would definitely keep my gadets safe while transporting my precious cargo being a single father and all

I really like the fact that this bag has a laptop compartment AND an iPad slot. I hate having to carry my iPad separately all the time; and I'm starting to carry both with me all the time. I need this bag, and will definitely be keeping it in mind when I purchase a new one this Spring.

This looks perfect for keeping my gadgets safe with all the traveling I do.

I especially like the "armor-protected" laptop compartment; That hits the sweet spot.

Its finally available again! I will take one, please and thank you! This can replace my old North Face pack

I like the integrated foam panels. I like to keep my stuff pretty well protected. My wife and I travel to Montana a lot to help out/visit my sister in law and her husband and I'd like to have a nice pack to carry my MBP in instead of my old crappy JanSport backpack that is falling apart.

Definitely the shoulder straps and the iPad slot. Although I wish they had an iPad and iPad mini version. Kudos, Ogio.

Why I like it ? The look, and well, as one famous artificial intelligence said: "space, so much space !"

I actually called up the company to get one but they were sold out. I'm an oakley fan (diehard fan) but This back pack is sweeeet!

The 'Quick access expandable phone pocket' is one of the features I like best because it will easily accomodate my iPhone 5 on the front strap for easy access while on my European trip in June.

It looks like a great bag with lots of options for keeping your gadgets with you. It's nice to have separate pockets for Macbook and iPad.

The single best feature I like on this is the "Crush proof Tech Vault pocket with soft tricot liner" far too few have anything like this.

I'd love to win this Ogio bag with the "Crush proof Tech Vault pocket with soft tricot liner". Good luck to us all.

I can see myself running through the airport, hands free with the OGIO backpack, and the 'sweet spot keeping me comfortable. The strap adds extra security.
The specially designed padded area for my iPad and Air will prevent damage.
But the MOST important item that will be protected is the cooooooool space for my Warby Parker sunglasses (would'nt want them damaged!)!!
The indiviual compartments and a place to put my ipod will make me dance through the terminal, listening to my favorites tunes.
Waiting patiently for my prize, so i can tell everyone on the plane all about the cool features (and just being plain COOL!

iWant the iBackpack. I literally carry my iOffice on my back this would truly be an iBenifit to my to all my iEndeavours. ilove the design. OK so i've over done it on all the iStuff. As a documentary film maker this would be a fantastic upgrade. i appreciate all the utilitarian care that went into this design. Jolly good job. i in Canada salute your bag. Ok so that didn't come out quite right. i obviously need to take iBreak from this post. Cheers!

I love how many pockets and how specialized they are. I can finally organize everything in my bag the way it needs to be organized.

I want that because there is alot of storage for mt stuff like my ipad and my laptop and my phone and it would be great to win this bag so I wish I could win it

Would be awesome have, because of the "Sweet Spot", as well as the protection of my important To.. I mean technologies.

I almost always have my iPhone and iPod classic with me, at all times. When I travel with my laptop, I almost always have my iPad and camera with me, as well as a big water bottle--this bag seems designed to carry everything I normally would in a way that's far more efficient and protective than what I currently do!

Separate compartments for the ipad and laptop. It's got a different compartment for everything I carry with me.

It's perfect for my travelling, I have many gadgets to carry with me, especially extra batteries. I would love to have this bag. Please.

Backpacks ROCK! And OGIO makes awesome products. I have 2 other OGIO products that are fantastic so adding this backpack would round out my collection.

This back pack is sweet! I could really use this as I'm out and about all the time with my laptop and numerous gadgets.

Lots of room, perfectly organized to handle all of your gadgets. For someone who frequently travels this would be the ultimate backpack to have. Pick me please.

I have an OGIO for my work computer and I love it! This bag has tons of compartments and from my experience with OGIO it will be plenty durable!

Wow--that thing is perfect---all my gadgets carried safely in one place!! I would have to fight off my college-age kids for that one! Thanks for the opportunity!

I love everything about it especially since it has a place to store both my laptop, phone and sunglasses along with everything else I need to store !

Excellent design from looking at video, has a pocket for everything. Wish i could find this in my town. Maybe have to look online for retailer. Great job

This backpack is really really awesome it's got pockets for all your stuff laptops, iPads whatever you want and what I really like about it is it has a sunglass holder and a pocket for your phone I take my computer iPad and other electronics everywhere I go when I travel and this bag is really awesome I would love to have it

This is a awesome AWESOME bag... loving the pockets I am very much on the go and could really use this. Thank you for offering this !

by far the back pack i geek like me could ask, i can finally ride my back and have all my devices secure the best thing is that you could organize all my tech and not worry about moving

That is a real backpack and it has every pocket I need to carry my things - I use public transportation.

That's just what I need. I travel a lot and need to protect my MacBook Air. The nicest bit is the handy pocket for your phone.

My daily routine includes my MacBook, iPad, Kindle, Big Jambox, various chargers, media storage devices and all sorts of other stuff. This would be perfect for me. My favorite bit is below.

Crush proof Tech Vault pocket with soft tricot liner

Well i just browsed the website and found a few packs that I would totally rock however i feel that winning this would be the best use to me since i couldn't afford many or their $100 packs and would love putting my phone in the front pocket.

I currently own an iPad 4, MacBook Pro, iPhone5 and an iPod Classic. I use all of these items at work at some point during the day. I currently use a NorthFace backpack which has a lot of usable pockets. However, the IGiO Renegade backpack would be the perfect bag to protect my investments.

I'd love to give it a try!

My MacBook Pro 15" Retina, iPad would fit perfectly. Also, my Canon G12 would be always handy in the top compartment.

Love the sleek design and all the compartments that store and protect the gadgets (laptop, tablet, phone, camera).

i want it to make my ipad more portable and it would be cool because if someone steal it i can use find my iphone to track them down

I dig the armor protected laptop compartment. Would be nice to have JUST IN CASE I happen to get hit on my motorcycle and have a spill.

Of course the protection for my gadgets! I carry my iPad and camera gear and I'm sure I can make this work for my needs! Love the armour!!

I like how durable it looks! My current backpack is all floppy, this one looks like it can withstand a beating, and keep my gadgets safe!

That would work for me taking everything to classes from my MacBook, iPad, Magic Mouse, and iPhone.

I like all the compartments so everything has its place and is always organized; whether for work or travel.

I would really appreciate one of these.

Wow so much features that I like, especially the Armor protected! I really need this bag to replace my 5 yo bag I currently use :)

The ergonomic aspect of this bag is awesome! I wear a bag all day for school, and it's usually filled with my 15" MBP, iPad, notebook, lunch, water bottle and anything else that's made its way into my bag. Carrying that weight properly is very important.

Wow completely portable and everything can fit in it! like literally i have so much stuff that's usually all over the place in my bag, it has pocket for everything that i actually need to put in my book bag or when i go hiking. Im soo getting rid of my old swiss one its been years :( i love its unibody man totally specially that compartment for the iPad, im also planning on getting one and it would be a lovely addition to it :D:D damn it i really wish i could get it :(

It looks great for organizing any and all devices and accessories I carry with me, whether for school or travel. And the protected compartment for my laptop, the crush-proof section for tech storage, and the separate iPad pocket are reassuring features I wish my current backpack had. Plus the ergonomic back and shoulder straps make carrying things properly much easier. This would be a fantastic replacement for my current, 6 year old backpack, and one that would allow me to carry my devices around with ease, comfort, and peace of mind.

OMG! You want me to only pick 1 thing about that backpack?! Its totally awesome! If I could only pick one thing it would be the amount of pockets/space. I have a ton of crap I carry around and I prefer it to be organized in pockets rather than all shoved into one big pocket! I hope I win this one!

WOW! What a nice backpack, I like how they made a compartment ON the shoulder strap for phone or wallet. A lot of perfectly executed compartments.

Honestly, I just love the stealthy, but bad ass looks of this backpack. It would make an awesome mountain biking companion.

I love the fact that it has a compartment for every single gadget there is to store. I would like to have this so that I can use it for school and work.

Adjustable sternum strap and lots of compartments - one for everything one can think of. Awesome!

I can carry all that stuff which I want to and without any damage. It has Integrated foam panels keep your electronics and other valuables protected and Armor protected dedicated laptop compartment. This is a perfect backpack for me.

Abundance of compartments for all sorts of portable devices, not to mention 2 crush-proof valuables compartments. One for your precious laptops and the other for smaller items though recommended for sunglasses. Design, functionality and durability are all second to none.

That would be great for my trip to Florida in a couple weeks. MacBook air ipad and kindle all safe and sound

It has a compartment for my iPhone and my laptop. And the level of protection it offers is superb. Overall ruggedness is a welcome quality. I'd love one! Twitter: @samsin92
