A-OK

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'll admit, I'm pretty tough on backpack reviews. I bought this to use as a commuter pack, and it fits the bill. I LOVE the easy u-lock pocket in the front, and I like the flap design so that you can really stuff it full. I love the durable material, I feel like I can really put it through the wringer and it will last. It's also much cuter than other commuter backpacks! I sometimes find that "unisex" backpacks are actually for men (or women with long torsos) but this backpack fits my 5'3"frame well.

My only complaint - it's not especially comfortable when heavy. If I have LOTS of stuff in it (gym clothes, gym shoes, work clothes, books, lunch, ulock, jacket, etc), it pulls really hard on the arm straps and it makes my arms feel like their going numb. This is obviously remedied by not over-stuffing it, and I usually don't have that far to go, so it doesn't come up often. Again, I'm tough on backpacks, and this would probably happen with most.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with it.

Luddites rejoice – a simple effective bag for work

If you are like me and don't carry your home on your back when you go to work, this is definitely the bag to carry. The total volume is lower than most backpacks but quite reasonable for a day on the town. Very comfortable straps and back padding. The bag is light, waterproof for days when the rain falls straight down, easy to access, and simple (my favorite combination of features). Being a Timbuk2, it will probably outlast my grandchildren. I can fit a 17" MacBook Pro laptop computer into it just fine, and several folders of paperwork. It is limited in its space for bulky lunches or coats, but that hasn't been a hindrance to me yet – I can stick a coat easily under the fastex-buckled flap. The easy side access to a wallet pocket is great. I haven't needed the side access zip to the computer, but then I haven't taken a flight with this bag yet. All in all a bomber, lightweight, and cleverly designed bag for the Luddite in you.
