Nixon makes the little stuff better. The stuff you have that isn't noticed first, but can't be ignored. They pay attention to it, argue about it and work day and night to make the little stuff as good as it can be, so when you wear it, you feel like you've got a leg up on the rest of the world. They believe that you deserve a lot of respect and when you choose to kit your fit with Nixon clothing, or select a Nixon wallet to hold your hard earned cash, or want to put the final touch on your steez with a Nixon belt or beanie, you deserve to have something that reflects your entire package. You may not know how to say it, but you've got something to say. Dammit brothers and sisters, you can't slap on an off-the-shelf piece and consider yourself you. Can you? That's why Nixon was started and that's why, 8 years later, they’re still here.
Nestled comfortably out of the way up against the Pacific Ocean in southern California, and tucked neatly next to the best surf in Europe, you'll find Nixon people doing what they do. What started as a frustration at a lack of quality watches that simultaneously do the talking for you and deliver what you need in various high stress work and play environments has grown into a network of athletes, rock stars, retailers, and dedicated loyalists that bring Nixon clothing, backpacks, handbags and accessories to market.
Some people look at professional skateboarders, surfers, and snowboarders and mistakenly think they know what they're looking at. Stereotyping can get you in trouble. Their skills are ridiculous, yes, but their experiences reach far beyond that handrail on the corner. Their actions are focused on perfecting their sports, but their interests and style are anything but focused. Their perspectives are unique, yes, but their needs are universal. It is our job to reconcile the former with the latter. Nixon hand picks those riders that are leaders in their sports and works with this elite group to make sure their perspectives contribute to a single unified expression: team designed, custom built.
Welcome to the now… welcome to the new… welcome to Nixon.
Nixon Principle Backpack
For a size comparison, this backpack is slightly bigger than the popular JanSport SuperBreak. The materials and details are superior though. The softer straps and mesh back make this backpack very comfortable. There are also nice details on the zipper handles, as well as a leather bottom. The laptop compartment is also very useful. However, I would estimate that the biggest laptop size it can hold is 14". My 14" laptop with extended battery fit very snugly, so I doubt a 15" would fit at all. One thing to note though is that there is no organizer in the small pocket, unlike the one available in the SuperBreak. The pocket on this backpack is simply a pouch.

Backpack looks great and can hold a good amount of things. The laptop slot is perfect and very convenient. Comfortable fit.

This has one of the orange plastic pull-tabs on the main compartment broke within the first week or two I had the backpack. Which stinks because it is pretty expensive, and now I have a random string to pull open the zipper, ruining the look. Also there are laser cut parts of the pack, and it is starting to fray a bit after a few months of using often, not daily. Other than the above it is held up well, and much more interesting design-wise than anything else that I have been able to find for a decent price. Most other designs seem to have too much pattern, or do not have decent compartments. this one is a nice daily pack. The computer compartment is nice. The red/orange accents are really nice.

I purchased both the Nixon Precinct backpack and the Nixon Principle above and ended up going with the Precinct that was a bit more expensive. The nylon and the leather bottom on the other backpack is superior. This bag's bottom is more of a coating instead of a more durable leather. The best/worst feature of this bag is the laptop slot. The slot is a 14" opening (I measured). An extra inch or two would probably fit most laptops with a 15" diagonal screen size.

This review comes after 1.5 months of use. Everything about this backpack is great, but like one of the previous reviews stated, the zipper pull tab on the main compartment broke! It's made of plastic, and clearly isn't sturdy enough for daily zipping. Pretty disappointed, since the backpack is great in every other way, and I love the computer compartment.
