Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

I love this bag because it holds my laptop securely and comfortably without being bulky and huge. I love the way the bag fits close to my back and isn't too long or wide. The bag is really comfortable to wear for any length of time. The straps and padding are excellent. Best backpack I've ever had.

Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

I needed a backpack that would eliminate carrying a purse, laptop case and lunch bag. This one does it all! It is thin enough that I can wear it on the bus without hitting anyone and, I'm not sure if this is the original use for it, but the zipper on the side is the perfect home for my keys. No more digging thru the dark abyss of my purse to find my keys!! I only wish the bag was a liiiiittle bigger to fit my lunch bag.

          Comments about Blackbird Laptop Backpack:

          Comfortable and a perfect size. Also seems very durable, with the warranty I am sure I will never have to buy another backpack. Great value considering that I bought it on sale.

          Know that it does *not* come with a chest strap. I thought it did because the video talked about a chest strap but it is not actually included. But I wrote to customer service and they sent me an attachble chest strap for free anyways.

            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.
