This bag is wellmade and feels extremely durable. The depth is narrow but I was able to really load it up for the work day.
he inside pockets are very flat and tight to the surface they are attached to - great if you have a lot of flat cards and passports to carry, not so great if you have real things like an energy bar, phone, etc. The lack of a water bottle pocket or interior key strap with clip is also aggravating.
The front straps look great, but unless tightened correctly per each load and open/close, can flop off. Not great when you're bolting off the bus.
The bag sat great on my shoulders and was very comfortable.

Switch from Crumpler to Timbuk2 i must say this is so much lighter & comfortable than "The King Single" - Crumpler that i previously own. Fit my 14" laptop nicely in a padded laptop compartment and i can store so much stuff (books, mp3, tablet..etc) and don't feel so heavy to carry. Combining some outdoor gears with STP makes my overall purchased even more cheaper.

This bag is exactly as described. I needed a stylish bag for work that holds files, notebook and even my lunch. I didn't give it five stars because the straps seem to slip a little on my shoulders when I'm wearing my winter coat. Other than that, I really love this bag.
Here are the dimensions for the laptop bag (HxWxD): 17x14x5. I would recommend measuring your laptop to see if it would fit within these dimensions

“Two questions: 1) Looking to buy this for a bike commuter that rides in all weather conditions. Is this made of their "ballistic" nylon or other waterproof fabric that will keep electronics and textbooks dry in all weather?|2) Laptop size says 15", will this fit a 15" macbook pro with a hard shell case on it as well? Thanks!”

The bag is not made with ballistic nylon, but it is made with a very durable water repellent nylon.|The laptop should have no problem fitting in the Timbuk2 Option Laptop Bag. I hope this helps.
