Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

It took a very long time for this product to arrive. I ordered three other items from various companies on the same day. This item came two weeks after all of these other ordered items and after the date it was needed as a gift.
The product was not as attractive or as big ad it appeared online. I'm not impressed in any way with Timbuk2.
The product did have many compartments, which is good. Overall, not impressed at all with this product or the company.

    Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

    This is a great bag. I searched for a messenger bag that could be converted to a backpack and was surprised and delighted to have come across this bag. It is a lbs or two heavier than expected but its versatility is well worth the trade off.

    Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

    I saw the Ace Bag on the Timbuk2 store alongside the Copilot Roller on display and wanted a bag I could strap to the roller when I travel. They both matched nicely. So I decided to purchase both and I was so impressed with the flexibility of the bag that I am using it as my regular work bag now. It looks like a sporty briefcase with plenty of pockets and compartments for my accessories and such. The shoulder strap is confortable, however the backpack straps are a little awkward and not as confortable as I would expect when putting in 20 lbs. of weight.

    Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

    I am an airline pilot who travels internationally for work 4-5 times a month. I was looking for the perfect bag to carry my company iPad, along with my laptop on occasion, and water bottles, headsets, sunglasses.....etc, in the cockpit and look professional, but which would do double-duty as a daypack for my layovers to carry a jacket, guidebook, umbrella, etc. I bought this bag over 1.5 years ago and it has stood up to constant travel, being shlepped around through airports, in airplanes, handled by van drivers, and used as both a daypack for city layovers as well as hiking excursions in the mountains on some of my layovers. It has stood up to all the abuse I have thrown at it and it still looks good and has held together well. I am very happy with it. The only thing it does not have that I would want is an exterior pocket to hold a thermos/water bottle.

    would be perfect if the belt for backpack would be removable instead of only hide as it makes bulky and heavy.

    Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

    I wanted a mid sized brief case that offered convinent storage pockets and flexibility to use traditionally or as a back pack. This "Aces" that job. Only trade-off for that flexibility is no bottle sleeve (Timbuk2 consider one for the use in back pack orientation). I would be happy to see more colour options, but regardless, the bag really is very practical and I highly recommend it.

    Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

    I bought this as I cycle to work but also needed a bag that was professional, I've had it over a year now and hasnt let me down. The fact I'm compelled to come back here and leave this review says a lot as I tend to go through bags etc like nothing. This bag has joined me all around Europe as well as my usual commute and never let me down once. Amazing stuff.

        Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

        I wanted a bag for an office job so I bought the ace bag. I kept it clean and neat but unfortunately the material at the bottom broke (split up, dissolved)after just three months of normal use! I've sent the photos to timbuk2 but they said that this is just a cosmetic thing and normal wear!? If broken fabric is normal wear, then you should expect this bag to last for maximum of three months. Also, I think this company is fake and they don't care about their customer because they ignored me.

          Love this back-pack/briefcase!!!I had a long search for the needed replacement of my well worn 10+year old "convertible" backpack. This pack is an extremely well thought out design. Plenty of room and works well both as a briefcase and pack-back;Compartments and pockets work well either direction.Use daily for business between different clients-my traveling "File Cabinet". Also recently used as carry-on bag. LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
          Thank you Timbuk2.

Backpack straps easily untuck for 17" plus extra batteries days, but on iPad only days, it carries naturally as a messenger.
