Meh. The bag is fine. Comparable in size to the Large size Timbuk2, and cheaper, and sans Velcro (which is nice). But as the other reviews imply, this bag is very large. Too large I would say. I'm 5'8 160lbs, and the bag was wider than me when on my back. If I were walking down the aisle of an airplane, and I had this thing loaded up and over my shoulder, it would probably hit people on both sides as I walked past them.

In conclusion: The construction of the Timbuk2 seems to be a bit nicer and better thought out, but, not $100 better thought out. So, if you need a huge bag (I fit my 15inch laptop, 3 law school text books, a 3 inch binder, and still had room to toss in a pair of sneakers and gym clothes), and you don't have the money to burn on the Timbuk2, then this bag will do you fine. Although, I would imagine that actually carrying this thing around while it is fully loaded would be quite cruel to your shoulder.

This bag is great. I compared it with many others, and it truly seems to be the best designed, the most durable, and the most inline with my style tastes of all the laptop messenger bags. The corduroy laptop pocket is great, and there is still ample room for a few text books and a binder.

Some people complain that there are no exterior pockets, but I think that is a good thing, because there is less to snag if you are wearing the bag while on a bike. Also, there is ample room to toss a water bottle inside the bag, so an exterior pocket is unnecessary.

Note: Everything written above is in reference to the Medium size.



Cons: The Velcro is annoying. If you are at a library try to keep opening and closing the bag to a minimum.
Size. The large is waaay too big. See my review of the Northface Ruckus (same exact size as a Large Timbuk2 Laptop Messenger) for a description of what I mean.
