    Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

    I use my bag everyday to carry my computer, camera, and documents. The bags is great because I can carry it it so many ways.... Use as aback pack, carry like a briefcase, or supply use the strap on one side of my shoulder. And the greatest part are all the different compartments making it easy to find my items. The light weight material that it is made from is also a big plus. I would recommend timbuk2 to everyone who is looking for a durable and stylish bag

    Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

    Great bag that offers versatility, comfort, and plenty of space. Primary complaint is focused on the shoulder strap. While the strap works well when used as a messenger, it struggles to stay onto the shoulder when just being used in a traditional fashion. Overall, this is a great bag and offers tremendous upside compared to many other bags.

    Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

    I am definitely one of those types that take all their gear with them everywhere they go. Up until now it has usually been in backpack form. When I came across this hybrid I knew I wanted to try it.

    With all the different compartments it does keeps my stuff well organized. I am able to carry my books, laptop, hard drive, and files, etc. all together in one bag. As I said before, though, the hybrid factor is the first thing that attracted me to the bag itself and I have to say, overall it works pretty well.

    However, I wish they could have disguised the fronts zips more. I find it a little on the bulky side. And tucking away the backpack straps is a little bit cumbersome, but definitely not a deal breaker.

      Plenty of room, and extremely versatile. I've had a few different Timbuk2 bags, and have always been pleased with the quality and thoughtful design of each. This by far my favorite though. Works for just about anything!

      Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

      I love this bag - I wanted to replace my messenger bag with something more like a briefcase (i.e. grown up) but that would still work on the bike (I also looked at Jack Spade, Freitag and many others). There are tons of pockets and the hideaway backpack straps are the killer app here - it's three bags in one, with a slim profile but plenty of carrying capacity. I have the camo color, which looks great. Carry it as a briefcase into a meeting, then pull out the straps to wear on the bike; when you roll it off your (right) shoulder, the grab strap is there for your hand to pick up. For some reason my laptop feels lighter in this bag than it did in my messenger bag, which is nice.

      Wearing a backpack is not quite the same thing as a messenger bag, but I'm liking it so far. Still have my messenger for more bike-oriented days.

      The only real drawback is that I wish the carrying handle was a little bigger, it would make briefcase use more comfortable. Overall this bag is a winner, thanks T2!

        Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

        I searched a lot - trying to find a backpack/messenger bag-combo that would be useful for commuting but also look good in business scenarios. Finally, I found the best alternative! I use it as a backpack when I need to carry my work laptop or my chromebook (11"6), or back/forth from the kindergarten trying to handle two kids at the same time. At the office, I switch easily to the bag/messenger bag option. The blue voodoo color is really nice! I do (as others have mentioned) sometimes miss a dedicated place for a water bottle, but so far that is the only con I have found. Before I used to switch back and forth between boring, big, backpacks and more stylish office bags, now I only need one bag!

          One of the best bags I've ever owned. Great for day to day use at work, as well as travel. Has a lot of room if needed, but compressed down and stays flat if not needed. Love this bag.

          This thing is fantastic, and I wish they made more of these. I was looking for something along the lines of the Phorce bag, and this matched it in versatility, but not in style. A lot of pockets are great, but they don't make this aspect subtle
