Review: OGIO Renegade RSS 17 Backpack




From the outside, the OGIO Renegade RSS 17 Backpack looks like any other backpack on the market. But dig a little deeper, and you’ll see that this backpack is full of surprises. Designed for the road warrior on the go, the Renegade features a number of specially-designed compartments for all of your tech gear.

As you can see in the photo below, the Renegade has numerous compartments for your stuff, including an armor protected laptop compartment with RSS that fits most 15″ laptops and select thin 17″ laptops, a padded iPad/tablet/e-reader pocket, a crush proof Tech Vault pocket with soft tricot liner (perfect for sunglasses), a padded mouse/digital camera pocket, and much more!


The following video does a great job of illustrating how the OGIO Renegade works:

I took the OGIO Renegade with me on a recent trip, and it made things so much easier for me. Normally I’d bring sleeves for my laptop and iPad to keep them protected in my backpack, but I was able to leave them at home and travel “naked” this time around. My glasses stayed safe in the tech vault, my digital camera had a special pocket, and there was plenty of other storage for my car keys, loose change, snacks, and other stuff.

It’s a little hard to see in the photo below, but the shoulder straps are reinforced with increased foam padding, along with fully adjustable ergonomic shoulder straps with a sternum strap. Together, it makes for one of the most comfortable backpacks I’ve ever used!


The Renegade RSS 17 is an amazing backpack, and one that I’ll be using for years to come. But it comes with a steep price tag that might scare some people away, retailing for $150. All I can say is that it’s well worth the money, and you get what you pay for.

Dimensions: 20″ H x 12.5″ W x 8″ D
