    Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

    Messenger bag is well made and durable. Lots of compartments for pens, folders and devices. Great for keeping organized when on the road again.
    There was a small glitch when returning the original black bag for the carbon fire model, but Timbuk2 looked after this immediately. More than happy!!

      I work in a professional environment in DC. I usually commute to work by bicycle, so I wanted something that I could ride with and look good at work. This bag really hit a home run for what I was looking for.

          This bag has been great for carrying everything I need for the day. I commute 4 miles to and from work via bike or bus. The option to use the bag as a messenger or backpack is perfect.

          Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

          I bought this bag to travel on overnight and day trips. I liked that it has both the traditional briefcase and backpack straps and can be used either way quickly and easily. That being said the bag is decent, I have a 15" Dell and it is a tight fit but it works. Main compartment is good size but not enough segregation for me. Would like separate compartments for charging cables, power supplies and misc cords and another for paper (books, notebooks, presentations, etc.). As it is I separate my computer and put everything else in the main compartment. If you do not have to carry paper it would be a great bag.

          Comments about Ace Laptop Backpack Messenger Bag:

          Lots of pockets for a lot of items. Holds laptop and power pack plus a of other bits and pieces. Main pocket is good for smaller items but does have limitations when trying to put clothing into it. Big enough for overnight bag, but probably best as a carryon when checking another bag in. Good for work if you have a lot of stuff to commute with. Backpack option is good for when the bag is loaded up as shoulder strap becomes a bit small - especially with heavy laptop.

            I wish there was a way to close the zipper pocket when the backpack straps are in use. The bag is very water proof but when using it as a backpack the strap compartment can fill up with rain. I always wish there were more pen and pencil pockets.

              I'm a graduate student taking classes and working at an internship. While at "work" i use the messenger strap to look more professional but while commuting and walking through the city it's so convenient to switch to the back pack straps for easy maneuvering through crowds. Ive actually stopped on the street and changed straps without having to place the bag on the ground. This bag fits Everything i need: laptop, notebooks, textbooks, etc. It gets heavy but I think that's more a function of what I'm hauling not the bag itself. This bag is going to come with me from school to profession, easily.

                I needed a pack that I could carry with an over the shoulder strap or on my back to enable me to lug my computer back and forth to work each day. Since I'm using it to go to work, I also wanted a few extra compartments for extras like snacks, cell phone, notes,... This pack does it all and is really well made. I couldn't have made a better selection. I am much pleased.
