I have searched high and low for the perfect backpack to use as a college instructor and this one does not disappoint! The Uptown is slim in profile, fits close to my frame, and has adequate pockets to hold all my work materials. The laptop compartment securely holds my 15" 2014 MacBook Pro and charger - it's convenient to access too. The two larger zippered compartments hold binders, file folders, books, notebooks, an umbrella, etc. While I am unable to slip my insulated square lunchbox inside, I am able to utilize the smaller components for purse items and even fit in my Chacos or Converse when the heels get uncomfortable. The exterior is sleek and professional looking. The side mesh pocket for a water bottle could be deeper, but it still holds my insulated Camelbak bottle. The only other improvement I would suggest is to make some more discreet pockets like are available in the messenger versions of Timbuk2 bags.

This pack has some nice features and is pretty roomy. But considering its ample size and the amount of stuff you could put into it, the shoulder straps are quite flimsy and inadequate to carrying much weight comfortably. It would benefit from sturdier straps and a tuck-away hip belt to help carry the load (e.g. laptop, lunch, raincoat, water bottle and all the other miscellany of commuting).

You can spend up to $600 on a bag. I'm too cheap. This bag by Timbuk2 is well made, durable and reasonably priced. The material seems like it will repel any kind of stains and will not tear or scuff. The buckles are made out of metal. One of the buckles takes a little effort to snap but hopefully it will ease up over time. It holds a good amount of files. However, I don't think legal documents will fit in this bag without having to fold them. Otherwise I am satisfied. Zappos always awesome on delivery.

I was looking for a backpack to carry my dog for day hikes and bike rides. I like the style of this bag because he could jump right in and it zipped closed easily. However, he’s very small (9 lbs) and he felt like he had a little too much room to move around. The backpack felt lopsided with him in it, which i think would be awkward for bike rides and generally very uncomfortable. Most importantly, this bag was SUPER heavy. My dog is small, but this bag added far too much weight for this to be practical for hiking trips.

This backpack was perfect for a plane ride to Africa. It stored my computer, a change of clothes, shoes, books, and a folder filled with documents. It had zipped compartments for various things like chargers, converters, adapters, and pill holders, plus my camera, wallet, and passport. It was super water resistant (not sure if it’s water proof - I only spilled on it once and the liquid balled right up and I was able to wipe it off) and the chest strap made it easier to hold my heavy load. Plus it was easy to open up for airport security. The officer even commented what a “clever bag” it was.

I just started a new job that requires me traveling around NYC each day carrying a computer, folders, lunch, etc. So far this has been great and fits a ton. Lots of pockets to keep me organized!

Best looking backpack I've seen. It's lightweight and comfortable. Not a ton of organization, but I kind of like that.

Bag is well made, wasn't crazy about the bag in person. The fabric and zippers are definitely heavy duty, and warranted for life against defects. Just didn't think it was stylish or roomy enough and very long and narrow.

Perfectly sized backpack for my day-to-day needs! I was having back problems from carrying a crossbody for years and figured a backpack would be a step in the right direction. As backpacks can be obtrusive in public situations, I wanted something small without it looking like I was wearing a kid's bag. This one is perfect! My sunglasses case lives in one side pocket, while my iphone 6s+ fits in the other. The long key hook strap in the front, magnet-closure pocket allows for unlocking my front door without unhooking the keys from the bag. The medium and large zipper-closure pockets fit everything else I may need throughout my workday: lunch, large Zigg water bottle, craft materials, gum, lipbalm, books, even my small laptop. I love the color, style, and size. My only complaint is the d-rings that attach the padded part of the shoulder strap to the adjustable, unpadded part on the bottom: they hit right in the armpit/rib area. While not painful, I'm definitely aware of them. It's something that might be irritating after a few hours of wearing a fully loaded bag. Other than that, I'd totally recommend this! I absolutely love mine and look forward to using it everyday!

A 15 inch MacBook Pro with touch at fits perfectly and is great for carrying your laptop everyday. I am extremely happy with my purchase and the Jetblack is an excellent, classic color.

I use this bag for errands, light shopping, and just walking around town when I need to carry a few things. (Typical load: compact trekking poles, water bottle, jacket and/or 2 items of clothing.) I use this as a day pack when I travel overseas -- it flattens to no more than 1" thick. I appreciate that the straps are relatively widely spaced for a small pack. (I'm a guy who wears L and XL shirts.)

I have used a few bags from this company in the past and was always satisfied so I decided to try a roller for an up and coming trip to Greece for 2 weeks. I knew before hand I would do a lot of walking, climbing stairs and traveling through train stations and airports. When the bag first arrived, I was a little nervous it was going to be too small for two weeks worth of traveling. What a surprise! It fit a lot of stuff with room for what ever I accumulated along the way. I put this bag through the journey of a life time. I dragged it through the streets of New York City, Copenhagen, Denmark and onto Greece. This bag was light enough to carry upstairs, dragged across cobblestone streets and up the ancient steps of the Parthenon! I ran this bag through every obstacle you could imagine, and when I finally arrived home, it still looks new. Putting skateboard wheels on a suitcase is pure genius! These things took my travel experience to a whole other level. My friend bought a very expensive bag from another travel company and her wheels blew off the first day! I give this bag 5 Giant Stars!!!!

I really like this bag and it's very convenient, but it does have some quirks. This bag is great for commuting and shopping trips. I wish the tote straps were a little longer because if you have a lot of stuff in the bag it's hard to get your arm through the straps. It would also be nice if the tote and backpack straps could tuck away when you don't want to use them. The one thing this bag sorely misses is more interior pockets. The small pockets on the outside of the laptop compartment are not enough. It would be nice if there were a few pockets on the opposite side of the bag for odds and ends because it is easy for things to get lost in the large main compartment of this backpack. One thing I've been doing as a work around is using pouches or dopp bags to hold smaller odds and ends that I would be nervous having in the outside compartments of the bag. It would also be nice if there were a key strap and if the small hidden pocket by the laptop access zipper were slightly bigger. All in all, this is a good bag for shopping trips, or just commuting. This bag has pretty much replaced my messenger bag as my go to bag for when I want to take more stuff with me.

Accidentally ran over my old work backpack with our car (oops!) so needed a replacement. Was looking to switch from my hiking-esque pack to something more sophisticated/professional. After a lot of searching, this was the only pack that fit my criteria: 1. professional-looking 2. reasonable price 3. can fit enough for my day and when I have to work overnight also (i.e. clothing change, food, my laptop, routine daily items). I train commute usually (good thing given my above driving anecdote!) so I need a sturdy bag that holds up and feels comfortable walking couple miles each day. After trying this for 2 weeks, have to say I'm SO happy with my purchase. I really love this bag. My only (very minor) critique is that the cross-chest strap could have been placed slightly lower. As it is you can adjust it and on the lowest setting it's fine for me. Might have gone down smidge further if it were an option. Otherwise, absolutely no complaints. Bag is very roomy and I can fit all my needed stuff and it still keeps a low profile. That said, I'm 5'10", so if you are under 5'6" this might look a bit large on you. I purchased the oxide heather color, and I love it. Reminds me of some of the waxed canvas looks I've seen that go for around $300. Only thing I can't speak to is that I haven't used it in a good rain yet, so we'll see how it holds up diverting the rain from the laptop area.

A fantastic travel bag. Fits an amazing amount of gear, stays comfortable when carrying and fits the overhead lockers on aircraft perfectly. Comes with loads of pockets and sections to separate clothes, wet/dry, etc and to carry all those small items as well as the great rear access zipped area for your laptop/surface. For a great price and even looks good enough for me to get a couple of comments and questions the first time I used it. Cant recommend highly enough.
