Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

I love that it's well made and doesn't bulk. The only thing I don't love I'd that the bag is tall and deep so stuff gets "lost" at the bottom.

      Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

      I was looking for a small backpack capable of holding my laptop or IPAD plus a water bottle and few other items. This pack was on sale and was from Timbuk 2 so how could I go wrong! I initially thought the slim design would be a CON for this pack, but I was surprised by how much stuff it holds yet keeps the slim design I was looking for. The pack looks and feels well make. I like the layout of the pockets and the additional protective sleeve that I keep my IPAD in is a nice touch.

        Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

        I have a lot of trouble finding backpacks that will fit all of my daily school stuff without being way too bulky for my back. I'm 5'2, and a lot of backpacks are uncomfortable or simply look ridiculous on me. This one is the perfect size. It fits my 13" MacBook, a binder, my planner, a book or two, and my laptop charger and lunch tucked in on top. The front pocket easily carries my pens and other small stuff. My Sigg water bottle fits into the water bottle compartment, which is snug but not too small. The only things I have to carry separately are gym clothes.

        The straps and back padding on this bag are excellent. My shoulders and neck don't get sore from carrying it, which has been a problem for me in the past. This bag doesn't rub excessively against the small of my back, either, a problem which has ruined my shirts with other backpacks.

        I bought the tweed/black/purple/blue version of this bag, which was the only colour scheme I liked. I wish that this bag was customizeable! I found the other colours unattractive, but I'm happy with this one.

        Things that aren't so great: The "cell phone pocket" on the backpack is REALLY small and tight. I actually use it for my keys and bus pass instead. The bag could use a second or a larger outside compartment for accessing this type of thing. My iPod touch barely fits in the cell phone compartment, and certainly wouldn't fit with anything else.

        Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

        The Blackbird is a low-profile backpack that is surprisingly roomy. It fits a 15" Macbook Pro, a Wacom pad (in the slot for a tablet), a 5x8 sketchbook, a few magazines, and various accessories. I use this backpack everyday and have received a lot of compliments on its streamlined look. I opted for the black color.

          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.

          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.
