So far my husband loves this bag. Lots of pockets for traveling and laptop use. Fingers crossed it last a long time.

Well thought out backpack but color not as expecte

I bought this as a backpack that could hold a decent amount of items for travel, but is not a "travel" backpack that is designed to carry a ton of clothing or shoes. I originally bought the Nutria color thinking it was caramel-khaki like you see in work wear. It's actually an ugly green yellow that is not attractive at all. The product photography does not match at all. I'd avoid that color completely and purchase black because it is unclear what color the green would be. The pockets are well thought out and I think the way to access to main compartment is really clever. The main compartment is a large open compartment with 3 folio like sleeves attached to the back of the bag. You could fit two laptops and a tablet into these sleeves and they are accessible through the zipper on the back or by flipping the the top back and unzipping the compartment there. The main compartment is accessible from one side through a side opening zipper that reminded me of photography backpacks. The other side was a long storage compartment with several stash pockets and a zippered compartment, which was surprising and really well thought through! The top zippered compartment on the top flap was smaller than I expected and would really function more as a quick stash spot for a phone when going through security than a long term storage location. The sunglasses holder is really just for a pair of sunglasses without a case so not ideal in my opinion. There is a simple front pouch that went the full length of the front.

Great way to carry your office on your back...

Able to pack almost anything you need to be productive in any locale. Sturdy, spacious and utilitarian. Hard to imagine any improvements to this design.

Best bag I’ve owned

I have had Thule bags for 14 years now, along with bags by Cotopaxi, Osprey, etc. This is the best day to day bag I have found. Organization is next level, and the support makes a bag full of MacBook Pro 15, books, chargers, snacks, etc etc feel light. Bonus is that it’s way more stylish than older versions.

For tall people only!

I really wanted to love this backpack. The material was great, the zippers were sturdy, and it had SO MANY POCKETS. That being said, I have three notes. Note number one was IT DIDN’T FIT ME. I’m 5’2”, and the bag hung uncomfortably low on my back. To compensate, I had to tighten the straps so much that they dug into my neck (I’ve never had this happen before?). After carrying it around fully weighted for a day I had terrible neck and back pain. I haven’t encountered this issue before. When my partner tried it on, it fit him perfectly! He said that it was super comfortable. So if you’re above 5’9” my review doesn’t apply to you at all! Note 2 was that I wish it had two water bottle pockets. I really enjoy bringing a hot drink and my water bottle with me. This is more a plea to the product designers, please, bring back the two water bottle holders. Note 3 was that the clasp and top zippers were challenging to open and close. That’s it. Those were my only notes and I am ridiculously picky when it comes to backpacks. I wanted to love this bag, and would have kept it if it had fit my torso. If you’re taller and looking for a stylish commuter with lots of organization, this might be your bag!

Such a nice backpack!!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wow! This backpack is so nice! My husband will be using this for spotting equipment at the race track! He was very excited and very impressed with the quality! There are so many pockets to organize. It feels very study and well built. We love the green color too!! Overall, a 10/10!!

Sleek, well built and convenient

I’ve just purchased the first of what will certainly be multiple Thule backpacks. I am beginning a new job and needed a backpack that will look professional when I have meetings following travel. This bag is beautifully organized with direct access to my computer as well as plenty of pockets for all the other work & travel necessities. The exterior is thick, the bottom is reinforced and the bag fits comfortably and doesn’t make my back sweat, On a day off I went for a couple hour hike and took the bag with me and was happy everything inside stayed dry. My only concern is that for longer trips I will probably need more room, That’s OK, I’ll get something a bit bigger too. In total I’ve used the bag on three trips so far and each time people asked about the bag because they didn’t know Thule made bags or just to compliment the look.

Love this backpack and Thule

This is my second Thule backpack. I absolutely love them. This is the new Paramount and it is great. Plenty of room for laptop, ipad, and other stuff I use daily. I travel 3/4 weeks a month with over 130 flights a year and this bag is perfect for traveling. Two minor things, the front clasp takes a bit to break in and can become tough to open or close. Second, the side water bottle holder is so large than sometimes the water bottles slip out. 10/10 would buy again.
