Love this backpack. I have back issues and this lets me carry my computer and other things very comfortably. It's sturdy and the colors (red and purple) are great-looking.

No Sternum straps providedReviewed by Designer from NYC on Friday, June 10, 2016Get your own sternum straps I was told even though the photo shows the pack with sternum straps. Backpack a bit too large for a tablet or notebook.
Super awesome laptop backpack, but terrible for ridingVerified Buyer Reviewed by Erik from Portland, OR on Thursday, June 9, 2016I love this bag as a cool backpack to carry my laptop around. Tons of compartments, comfortable and convenient.
However, there is a solid piece of plastic in the back of the pack, which makes it rigid. When I ride with it, the bag doesn't conform to my back. It actually rubbed a spot on my back raw (at one of the middle vertebrae) the other day. I'm a roadie, so maybe this would work better for a more upright positioned rider.
I like Timbuk2 bags and I really wanted to like this one. I associate Timbuk2 with cycling bags, but I've now learned not every bag is designed to be used for cycling.
Overall: Really cool bag, but really disappointed it is so terrible for riding. Aside from that, it's a 5 star bag.
Awesome, except DID NOT ARRIVE AS PICTURED.Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rebecca from Seattle on Tuesday, May 31, 2016I love this bag, don't get me wrong, but it arrived without the sternum straps OR ANY padding for the back as pictured. I still use it, but I have yet to hear anything from Sierra Trading Post about these inconsistencies.
Love it!Verified Buyer Reviewed by esg1108 from New Hampshire on Tuesday, May 31, 2016Love this backpack. I have back issues and this lets me carry my computer and other things very comfortably. It's sturdy and the colors (red and purple) are great-looking. The only thing is: the description says it comes with a sternum strap, but it doesn't. (Maybe they changed that in the description since I called to complain!) Happily, I've found that I don't need the strap for my load. Perhaps if I were a student and had to schlep around a few textbooks I would want it.
Great College BagVerified Buyer Reviewed by Me-MoverDenver from Colorado on Monday, May 30, 2016Nice size for biking around campus. Love the strap for a blinky light! And the big top flap keeps the weather out.
FantasticVerified Buyer Reviewed by Rebecca from Boston on Wednesday, May 25, 2016I have had timbuk2 bags for a long time and I wanted to switch from a messenger bag to a backpack (shoulder trouble) and this is the perfect item.
good!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Yoko from saitama, Japan on Wednesday, April 27, 2016it's so robust and the design is simple . I bought another one. but it got broken so fast. my son had used a backpack of timbuk 2 several years . but it never got broken . that's why I choose timbuk2 again. I trust the company .
nice backpack--no sternum strapVerified Buyer Reviewed by backpack reviewer from California on Tuesday, February 16, 2016Nice backpack, except it did not come with a "removable sternum strap" described in the item description. I was really disappointed that it did not come with the sternum strap.
I'm in loveReviewed by Gogo Greta from Oregon on Thursday, January 14, 2016so easy to organize. waterproof. just perfect for a laptop, gym clothes and wallet.
Great little bagReviewed by LHStar from Boston on Wednesday, April 29, 2015Compared to the chrome messenger I'm used to carrying this bag feels pretty small. But so far it's very comfy even with a heavy load. I wish it came with a waist strap but these kinds of bags usually don't. I like the pockets, everything is very easy to access. The price is excellent on sierra trading post. Oh and I love the purple color!

“Whuch size is this pack? There are S and M variants as far asiI know.”
According to the product overview/specs tab:
Capacity: 1220 cu.in.
Laptop compartment fits up to: 15"
Dimensions (HxWxD): 17.7 x 12.6 x 5.1"
Thanks. I read that. But I found online images of people wearing it where it's gigantic and where is appears in reasonable size. Since there are only S/M options, I assume the bloated version is the medium. but I am not sure which is sold here.
“Is this backpack water resistant? Waterproof? ”
This backpack has some water resistance, but is not waterproof.
