Wenger quality Swiss backpack... made in China

Wenger Swiss backpack price and quick review

You have probably heard about the Swiss brand Wenger and the quality products they are making. There was a huge discount campaign for selected Wenger suitcases and backpacks in the local store so I decided to take advantage of the low prices and bought myself a nice backpack. 
Of course I was a bit disappointed when I saw the 'made in China' line on the tag because Wenger products are actively advertised as Swiss products and one would think quality Swiss product should be made in Switzerland not anywhere else. But I also know that almost all of the big manufacturers (worldwide) are outsourcing their businesses in China and that the Chinese can make some really quality products when they want to. That is why I decided it is worth the 18 Euro and bought the backpack.
My first impressions of this Wenger backpack were very good, it felt solidly made and the zips were probably the best I have ever tested on any bag.  The backpack looks good and it is also quite functional - it has a secure laptop section inside and few other compartments outside. The back of the backpack is padded for more comfort and also don't allow your back to sweat because the touching area is reduced to a minimum. You also have ergonomic handles that secure the backpack perfectly while carrying around.
What also surprised me is the fact they gave me a 5-year warranty with this backpack, something that is not seen very common on consumer products like this one.

No matter the fact this bag wasn't made in Switzerland I am glad I bought it, it wasn't expensive and I am sure it is going to last for quite some time. 
I will share more impressions when I have it carried around for a while. I wish you safe and pleasant trip and come back later for more interesting tests and reviews.

Great backpack. I am using it on a daily basis for almost 6 months and I can say that this Wenger backpack is really worth the money, even though it is not made in Switzerland. Anyways, I strongly recommend it.

Hi,

I'm trying to find this backpack for more than 6 months, but that turned to be mission impossible. Can you please tell me the exact model of the above reviewed backpack? I really like it, but I can't find it anymore.

Thank you!

Regards,
Nick

Hi Nick, it is really not an easy backpack to find. I am not sure of the exact model but I will check for availability somewhere around your location and I will ping you back in case I find it anywhere. It is really a good backpack, with very big main compartment, very useful laptop compartment and I also got it pretty cheap - for around 20-30 Euro.

The model should be something like Wenger 22l (506-6072).

Thank you very much for your prompt response! That's the exact model I was looking for! I'm so glad I came across your review. Unfortunately this bag is discontinued, but if you find it somewhere, please let me know.

Thank you again!
