    Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

    I use this for small day trips. I live in Boston and needed a a bag that could fit what I need for the day but wasn't a burden to carry around. I love this bag! Its everything I wanted and needed. It may not be great if you needed a backpack for a longer trip. But for day trips and even overnights it is perfect!

    Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

    I use the backpack to commute to/from work walking and on the subway (DC Metro). I wanted a small-ish backpack that holds its shape even when not full, with enough pockets for my Macbook, iPad, a Moleskine, and some papers. It also has lots of room for the associated chargers, a water bottle and some snacks. Oddly, it lacks a key fob, a small feature that I find very useful.

    Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

    I use this bag every day I go to work, to hold a variety of electronics and things I'll need on the fly. I love the compact nature of the bag (it doesn't look like a giant block stuck to my back) and the smooth zippers/pulls that can be opened and closed with one hand. This is my first Timbuk2 bag, and I would highly recommend it.

    Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

    It's a great minialistic bag which was really what I was looking for.
    However, I wish a there was at least a small amount of padding at the bottom of the main compartment. I use it mainly to put my camera in and every time i place my bag on a hard surface, I have to remember to place it gently or sometimes i end up knock it on the ground.

    I'm a pretty broad guy and i found that the bag is used best with the (not included) sternum straps.

    Overall, I love the minialist design and for the price I paid, it's really a steal.

    Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

    After replacing my smashed iPad due to my clumsiness with a new iPad Air I was determined to always carry my iPad in a bag, so the hunt began. I found the Blackbird on the sale site, always looking for a good deal, and was sold primarily on the price. The bag seemed a little big for my purpose (looking for a weekend bag for iPad, a few graphic novels, small pad, and pens). And when i got it I seriously thought about returning. But after using it for a few days and putting my 13" MacBook Pro into the bag I have grown to love it and it has now become my primary work bag. Super comfortable on my back when loaded up. It stands up nicely when put on the ground. Big open pockets are great for the few items I carry. The iPhone pocket on the side is a little small. Would be perfect if you carry your iPhone naked but I don't (again with the clumsy). Overall I have grown to really like this bag and am very happy I kept it.

      Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

      I use this bag to carry my things to and from the local library. I don't have an office, so I use the library as home base. So my bag basically is my office. It holds everything that I need without being as bulky as most backpacks. I need more than a messenger bag will hold, but don't want the size of a typical backpack. This bag is perfect. Holds my tablet, 13" MacBook Pro, several books, and everything else I need. I highly recommend this bag.

      It's narrow and thin so don't expect to carry your entire life in it. Just what I want for a quick trip to class!

      Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

      I bought this as a gift for my gf to add to our Timbuk2 collection, however I had a chance to use it for a week and a half before she did. I love the organizational features within each compartment. I had it loaded up with my laptop her iPad, my nook, two books and a notepad in the main compartment with room to spare, the front pocket held several miscellaneous goodies in addition to all of our adaptors. The side water bottle holder is a great size for a SmartWater bottle and the side media pocket is plush and protective for your iPod or smartphone.
