    This is a well built pack but it is a very weird design. The top will hit the back of your head if your height isn't just right. Also, the way the main pocket unzips is a pain.

    I love that it is a backpack with multiple handles to carry it into meetings. I have used a messenger bag for years, but needed to change to a backpack due to neck and back pain. This is way more comfortable than a heavy messenger bag.

    What an excellent back pack. Good for all varieties of usage. Enough room for a minimalist weekend. Can not say enough about this pack, you won't be dissappointed.

    I got this because I needed to transport my 17 inch laptop. As with all Timbuk2 products, there are as many pockets as you need. When going through aiport security I found out that the most valuable aspect of this bag is the dedicated laptop compartment, so I have access to my computer without going through my entire bag. The only drawback is that the backpack is longer than others that I've had in the past and sits higher on my back. For taller people this shouldn't be an issue.

    I got this as a travel bag. I work for an airline so I get to travel quite a bit but have to pack light. For a week I will take a mini roller and a back pack. This looks like it will work fine. Spot to separate my ipad/magazines from the rest of my gear. Spots for phone, ipod,keys,etc. The side panel will help keep my travel docs separate from my cell, ipod (they won't fall out when I get my ticket) Big enough to pack toiletry bag for 2, and 2 days worth of clothes in the main section (and I'm a girl) Guys probably 3-5days. I love the side handles to help carry down the isles.
    • Best Uses: Everyday use, Travel

    Like all Timbuk2 stuff, this bag seems very well made. I got it for an upcoming trip because it is a perfect carry-on size. It also has lots of different carry options - backpack straps, multiple carry handles. It even has a bottle opener... that I will probably never use. The only think that detracts from this bag is that some of the zippers go around corners, so they do not open very smoothly. Not a big deal IMO, but an issue none the less.
    • Best Uses: Laptop, School, Travel, Work
    • Cons: Zippers Are Not Smooth
    • Pros: Lots Of Carry Options, Lots of organization, Thoughtfully Built, Useful pockets, Well Made
