    What are the differences?
    What is each one used for?
    Which is best for general lugging stuff around?

  2. Err.. Utility is a kinda run of the mill laptop bag (Don't overly rate it, will get on to why.) Tactical bag appears to be a bit of a lan beast.. looks like it holds a lot.. has a rain cover etc.. Mercenary backpack is for 14" laptops, says it takes a beating etc but looks smaller and more compact than the tactical..

    I picked myself up a Utility backpack days after they were released and they do look like nice bags.. Don't stand up too well to punishment though.. To start with I'd say I was certainly putting it under some stress.. Had my mighty MSi GT60 Dominator lappy in the bag (Chunky beast, weighs a lot.) And various bits and pieces for work.. Then I noticed after about a month of using it for work that there was a point where the strap was put together that had started to fray. So I stopped using it for work and kept it for a general bag.. Even after a bit more light use (taking along game shopping etc.) the Strap has got worse. Razer did tell me to send it back to them but as I work 60 hours a week I don't have time to get much stuff like that done. So yeah, Not touched the other two bags yet but don't overly rate the Utility backpack.. Might speak to Razer again and see if I can work something out..

    I have the Tactical Bag. I'm a full time law student and it take some punishment. Long days with heavy books and my Blade in the back. I'd recommend it highly. 10/10 would buy again.

    No worries. I am curious about the mercenary bag as well though.

    Great choice. Personally i would like to have a utility bag for biking to friends houses and other times where i carry minimal tings. Also i really really want the tactical backpack, i am a student and i have a big bag but its not the best for my computer nor does it look good and finally just can't fit all my school stuff with my computer. Which means i will get the tactical backpack soon. I also like the messenger bag but i prefer the utility and tactical more because i would use them more, so its not worth it for me. Finally for the mercenary, i just find the tactical is better for style(preference) and fits more. All in all I think razer deserves credit for making 3 amazing backpacks and a cool messenger bag, your choice should be about what you want to carry and also the bag that's looks the best to you.

    Hmmm i still cant decide which one to get due to budget issues.. anyone can make a short video of the utility bag you own? like build wise and compartments wise.
    Im using the 15inch macbook + charger and files for documents and iphone + ipad charger and portable power bank..

    Really keen on getting a merc. I have a swissgear laptop bag at the moment, also sturdy and does the job, also looks like i'm carrying a typewriter around 24/7. The merc looks so much more slick and compact! Hope it looks as good in real life as in person!

    Yes

    Ahh. i made a mistake, i was looking at the Utility Backpack..
     
  16. I think the backpacks just look a bit weird. They need to be more attractive if Razer want me to buy one.

    I like the tactical bag, utility bag and messenger bag just not the mercenary bag. So I mean I like 3/4 and most people do indeed like them, I would not call them unattractive. Maybe if your not a fan of razer, the bags may not look appealing. One of the main reasons people are razer fans is because of there styling and if you don't like there styling which seems to carry through all there products including these bags idk what to say.

  19. I don't own any Razer bags, but my personal favorite (going off looks) is the mercenary backpack.
