Slate Backpack
Slate Backpack Posted: 8/31/14
Reviewer: Terrance S from Bay Area, CA

The Timbuk2 Slate Backpack is a hybrid outdoorsy backpack with some civilized/fashionable features. It consists of a large main compartment, two side pockets with elastic openings, and a front pouch with basic organizer. With the exception of a place to put a laptop, there are no other internal pockets or dividers. The Slate is more "fitted" than the other backpacks I've used; it's a bit narrower but longer but as a result, it stays in place better. Overall, this is a high quality backpack and it fits my lifestyle better than my previous Swiss Gear backpack ~ I travel quite often and I appreciate how the Timbuk2 Slate works well for me for both work and play. It doesn't give off much of an outdoorsman vibe while I'm in the office, but it's ready to go when I want to hike, bike, or explore. I dig the chest strap though I haven't had a chance to use the integrated bottle opener yet ~ the external carry loops work great for lighter things such as padlocks, climbing harness/shoes. Although the bag is already pretty compact, I think some straps to be able to cinch the bag down would be helpful for hanging heavier items, eg. larger bicycle locks. Overall, the Timbuk2 Slate is a versatile bag and it works well for me. I like the look, and I like the red interior and tarpaulin & canvas combination. I hope it will last.

Great wallet, just the right size for 6-7 credit cards and cash. My wallet usually gets thrown into a backpack so the integrated elastic band helps keep crap from falling out. Only complaint would be the slots are a bit tight when you first start using it but loosen up a bit with use.

Bought the bag for travel. The dimensions are good but the interior is sloppy. The large slip pocket really needs some type of closure, maybe the zipper that is advertised on the attached tag? The interior water bottle pocket is great but having the exterior pocket on the same side makes for very uneven weight distribution. Overall, rather unhappy with the bag.

This suitcase is fantastic. It rolls very well and there's an opening from the front which means you don't have to unzip the whole bag to get a few things like your jacket. There's two small mesh zip pockets to hold small items inside. It has enough handles to grab from any angle. It looks a bit big to carry on the plane but I'll try that next. Roomy enough for a weekend trip or a bit longer. I love timbuk2 products and own a about 20 items and this is one of those worth buying. So far another great timbuk2 product!

A wonderful messenger bag to have. I was hesitant on purchasing this bag because it says "small", (I only wanted a bag that could fit around 2 textbooks and a laptop) but when I received it I was surprised. It has a North Face "Hot shot" back pack look to it - which is awesome. It can fit around 2 large textbooks. For those who are around 6 feet tall and up, or for those who are interested in a bag with more space to hold additional books, shoes or clothing, I would recommend a size "large" bag. The black messenger bag which I purchased has a very sporty masculine look to it. All an all, great bag.

The first wallet I ordered wasn't made very well and the rubber bands in the strap had broken loose and it didn't hold the wallet together very well, but I called Zappos to let them know what happened and they sent me another one free of charge.

The general idea is great. Water proof bag with slots for a laptop and a tablet, and good size internal compartment and one external zippered pocket. The bad: 1) no clip for easy access to key ring 2) external compartment access requires opening bag 3) for me the bag rubbed against the bolt at the bottom of my rack tearing a hole in the fabric, I glued a strip of metal here to handle the abrasion from riding (Timbuk2 should have had better material here) 4) bottom of bag material no different than general external material, waterproof but not the best for putting on the ground and taking normal daily commute abuse (see Ortlieb Downtown Commuter Pannier) 4) the bag may be intended to be carried on your shoulder with the clips against your back but WTF! I quickly adapted the bag to work with the soft side against my back, it required attaching velcro to the velcro strips on the bag to avoid tearing up my clothes and 5) the biggest issue, the hinge system, the clips are fine, quick release and stable enough but the material supporting the clips is plastic. Mine shattered today leaving the bag dangling and a quick stop was all that prevented my bag and computer from taking a solo trip down the road and into traffic. Not the thing you need on your commute to work. I showed my broken bag to an engineer I met on the train today and he immediately criticized the material and thought of some solutions. Why Timbuk2 went with a material almost certain to fail, I have read other reviews of users having the same issue and using DIY fixes, seems inconsistent with a company that offers lifetime guarantees? I had used my bag 4 days a week for 9 months before failure. I have always thought a pannier was a better option than a backpack for commute cycling. However, I have not found a good pannier that meets all my needs (see above) plus a slightly larger compartment. So I just ordered an Osprey Spin 32 backpack. On my ride in to work this morning I found that wearing the pannier made riding a bit easier than having all the weight in the back, if the backpack doesn't make me overheat too much I will welcome the change.

Reading some of the other reviews, I was a bit worried about this purchase. But those worries seem unfounded. I have now had this wallet for six months. The wallet has retained it "stiffness", while conforming to my back pocket. The elastic band shows some wear, but is still intact. Some people complained about the credit card slots being too deep, but I don't necessarily see that as a deal-breaker. The cards are stored well, and there is a divider in the cash money compartment. I wanted a bi-fold, non-leather wallet as I generally work outdoors (sun, rain, sweat etc). I also wanted something that was "stylish" and functional. I believe Timbuk2 has made a great wallet that works!

This bag is super cool and loved it for a few days until I realized how quickly the dirt shows up since it's mostly a light grey color. Unfortunately will have to exchange for darker color.

I recently bought this for my husband as a diaper bag - he wanted something more masculine that would not be mistaken for a purse. The bag itself is a great messenger bag for a man (or if you just want a unisex bag) - it's sturdy, has multiple pockets and fits everything he'll need for the baby if he is out for a few hours.

This is a wonderful tote that can handle all my extras that I need for work...lunch, water, files, umbrella, hard drive and so on and a nice alternative to a briefcase. It's very sturdy so I have no concerns about it falling apart with heavy use. It fits comfortably over my shoulder, has extra pockets inside, one pocket outside, a zipper top and a nylon bottom. I can't think of anything wrong about it. Love it!

Everything about this bag is great except that they inexplicably put the handle offset from the top. If you lift from the handle, it tilts forward and things could fall out.

The backpack straps being stitched so close together is a bad enough problem that it's surprising that this product hasn't been recalled yet. My neck is a small--14.5-15 so if I have this problem I can't imagine that anyone other than a child could comfortably use this as a backpack. Also, the weight listed here on the Timbuk2 site *does not* include the padded shoulder strap, and this adds an additional 6-8 ounces to the bags total weight. Not Zappos' fault, but deceptive of Timbuk2 since the previous Wingman design's listed weight did include the strap. I own the previous Wingman design and have taken it all over the world at this point--love the Timbuk2 style and the MLC (maximum legal carry on) dimensions. Was hoping for an upgrade but this 2014 model is going back.

Shockingly bad design of the backpack straps, which are not functional because they cut into the neck and upper shoulder area. I really needed this to be carryable with the backpack straps, so this means the bag doesn't work for me at all. I also think the bag is heavier than necessary; weight is a major issue when traveling with a lot of stuff on your back.

This is a really good bag. It has all the big and little compartments you'll probably ever need. I trekked across France with this bag and it served me well. It resists scuffs and tears, so it always looks good. The only downside to the bag are the hooks that close the front of the bag -- they should have used the standard snap buckle instead. The hooks can be difficult to thread into the strip they fasten to, and that can be a problem if you need to close it in a hurry. Other than that, this bag will handle just about anything.

Great travel bag. I tried several, and this was the best. Easy opening, not too big or too small. Expandable feature is very practical.

My second Timbuk 2 bag. I have medium that's too big now that I don't carry a laptop. The small is perfect for everyday carry with a tablet. Great quality, lots of pockets, and burly enough not to be a man purse.

Loved the style...didn't like the material that it is made of. Gets dirty, and dull looking quickly. Will not buy again until the material is improved.

This is a well made bag that just does not work for me. The divided interior pocket makes it difficult for me to pack my shoes flat and my toiletry bag (LL bean large) must be packed vertically. I wanted to love it, but it's going back.

I actually bought this as a diaper bag. I use cloth diapers and needed something wide. It is the perfect size. I also bought it knowing one day that I would be done with diapers, but have kids that I need to cart stuff around for. The quality is great.

I have used a small Timbuk2 messenger bag for about nine years. I am fairly small (5'3", 107 pounds) and cannot handle much for size or weight. However, I found that I was having to take a second bag or leave things behind with the small bag. The Command Messenger bag gives just enough extra room and has a nice pocket for my computer, which had been taking a beating in the old bag. I definitely recommend this!
