I'm not complaining, I'm just asking. What makes this worth the price?

Thanks. I got the Monterey sling in camo instead but still significantly less than retail.

For those considering...you might consider eBags.

My calculation shows the Bloomingdale purchase costs $185.49 before $50 rewards credit. (assuming 7% tax, 3% cashback from Web, and $30 Amex offer)
eBags purchase costs $165.72 after their 110% pricematch. (no tax, 6% cashback, and $15 Amex offer)

I personally don't buy from Bloomingdale so would entertain eBags. Thought I provide an alternative...

Branding. It's a luxury line of bags.

It isn't, it's merely what the market will bear.

Agree...I have been through dozens of backpacks and can share a little in terms of work/productivity use. I work in business atmospheres but can't take my travel "office" with me in a briefcase, so I spent a lot of time researching:

I find the most useful bags have multiple exterior pockets compartments, but make them look streamlined. Best bang for the buck imho for business backpacks is Travelpro...I have their Crew 8 & 9. My Crew 8 has lasted through everything, got a new Crew 9 a while ago to replace, still can't justify retiring it yet. Has three mini compartments, looks very professional, and is very comfy. Crew 8 tough to find, but I've seen it on eBay for under $80 before new. Well worth $150. Crew 9 is on Amazon for about $120. The newer bags are in the $170 range.

Tumis look very sharp (well, not this one) but I know people who have them and they aren't built to be user friendly or durable and seem to scuff a lot. I assume that is because most people who spend $500 on a backpack will rebuy new ones after it gets slightly worn...Planned Obsolescence.

Honorable (less expensive) mention:
Kenneth Cole "pack of all trades" backpack, got this for like $30 or $40 and was very impressed with its quality and usability for a $50 backpack.


edit: Let me add, if you are just looking for a backpack for college/school... Why the hell are you looking at this? You are in school! Quit suckling at your mother's teat and get a Jansport!

Thanks for the info. I had the Amex deal on 3 of my cards. I bought 3 $75 ebags gift card under 3 different transactions. Called up ebags did the price match and had them combine the 3 gift cards into 1.

Tumi bags are very well constructed and designed with function as a priority. I own 4 tumi bags and 2 samsonite bags. I purchased a samsonite and a tumi bag for travel around the same time a few years ago. The samsonite is showing wear around the handles and one of the zippers doesn't close all the way but the tumi is still fine. The fabric on the tumi feels thicker than the samsonite.
