I needed a small backpack for work and this fit the bill! I can carry my 15" laptop and several notebooks, etc. Comfortable on my back and fits in my bike baskets. Also really nice looking, like all Timbuk2! Would highly recommend this pack!

    These backpacks are perfect for my kids heading back to school. Everything they need fits and it is not bulky and overly heavy.

    This backpack is both fashionable and practical. It is comfortable and light, while maintaining the quality one would expect from Timbuk2. The first time I used it, I carried 24 beer cans in it, and it was very comfortable to carry that weight. It hasn't rained on it yet, so I can't yet testify to it being water proof/resistant. Yet, it has been hot, and the pack circulates air on your back pretty well. However, the pads that touch your back make you sweaty, so be ready for two sweat spots. But this is better than other backpacks that make your entire back sweat. The side zippers for easy access to computer and front pocket are great too.

    I considered getting the fastest delivery option because I needed this for school, I'm glad I didn't though since it was delivered 2 days after I ordered it. I love this backpack too.

    As usual, Timbuk2 makes a great product. I have several of their packs. Would be nice to include a top-flap pocket on some of these packs. Although this one does have nice side access to part of the big pocket and small pocket in front. So that's helpful. Video was very helpful in determining my purchase - could see actual size better and how the pack worked.

    This pack makes my day by not breaking my daughter's back! It is difficult to find a pack that will fit heavy textbooks and be engineered to fit a very petite (4'9"/91#) high-schooler. The pockets are well thought out and fit pencils, calculators, lunches, notebooks . . . the side zip pocket works great for a notebook and is placed for easy access! Except for sending a HS student to school with a bottle opener, (which can be cut off or used with a key ring for a pouch) this pack is an incredible upgrade to her older pack by keeping the weight close to her body, she has grown inches by just not stooping under the weight anymore. Thanks for the online source.

About Timbuk2

Originally created in 1989 by a San Francisco bike messenger named Rob Honeycutt, the Timbuk2 messenger bag is still an iconic example of entrepreneurial spirit and innovation. Easily recognized by the rugged, stylish design, Timbuk2 bags were initially made to order in Honeycutt’s basement before the company opened its first shop three years later. Timbuk2’s signature three-panel, tri-color design and “Build Your Own Bag” order form first debuted in 1994 and remain extremely popular today. After more than two decades, this brand still constantly evaluates its products for performance, durability and environmental impact, ensuring that all Timbuk2 messenger bags, backpacks, laptop bags and accessories are held to the highest possible quality standards.
