    Comments about Cask Laptop Backpack:

    I bought this backpack to commute to work by bike. It holds my 15" Mac laptop perfectly. It's a bit thinner than a traditional backpack but I can also fit my lunch and other items with no problem. I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and haven't had any issues. It's comfortable, stylish, and would definitely recommend it!

      Comments about Cask Laptop Backpack:

      This is the perfect commuter backpack. My last backpack was stolen and I was on the search to replace it. I loved my old backpack but couldn't it anywhere again, so I started looking around. As someone who uses their backpack on the go for work, to carry a laptop, to hop on busses and in and out of cars, and between classrooms, there were a few key features that I absolutely needed.

      I needed a backpack that has a firm bottom and sits upright on its own.
      Check.
      I need a laptop sleeve that's accessible.
      Check.
      I need a front pocket that is easy to access for everyday items like headphones, chargers, and misc. Preferably a magnetic front pocket or some mechanism besides a zipper, because zippers aren't as quick and if it's cold and dry out they cut up your hands when they're on tiny pockets.
      Check.
      Another pocket or two inside for small items, but ones that you don't need constant access to.
      Check.
      I need weather resistant, as it's constantly sprinkling in Portland, but not necessarily waterproof.
      Check.
      And lastly, as vain as it sounds, I need a backpack that looks professional and stylish. I'm on the go so much that I really dislike messenger bags, and backpacks provide a bit more versatility. But I need a backpack that says, "They're a professional." This backpack absolutely conveys that sentiment. It's not your "I'm not sure if they're still in high school" backpack.
      Check.

      All of my needs were met, on top of basic requirements like durability and quality of materials.

      I really love this product, and a lifetime warranty will definitely make me consider more TIMBUK2 products in the future.

      I also had a great experience in the Portland store with an employee that knew the ins and outs of all of their products and when I listed some of my necessary features they had a handful of backpacks in mind. And, I personally would never consider shelling out a couple hundred dollars for an items without seeing it firsthand.

      Keep up the great work TIMBUK2

        Comments about Cask Laptop Backpack:

        I am in the fashion retail industry and I was looking for a chic backpack that wasn't going to have a designer price tag. I have a Timbuk2 backpack that I use for heavy travel, sport and hiking. The Cask Laptop Backpack is perfect for the office and easy to use. It looks great too! The leather and grey canvas is a good mix. I love it.

        Comments about Cask Laptop Backpack:

        The bag is a nice small commuter backpack that doesn't make me look like a bike messenger. The waxed canvas look is what I'd been searching for. The left side pocket is a little odd and doesn't quite hold a water bottle or sunglass case very efficiently, but mostly does the job. It needed one more pocket, but I can't complain too much given the bag is relatively small. My two biggest gripes are the zippers and straps. I do understand that the dirty bronze metal zipper and straps go with the darker look of the bag, but they are harder to work with. The metal zipper is not smooth to open/close, and, it gets caught on everything, scratches my arm as I reach in to get stuff, and will scratch and computer pass between its metal jaws. The straps are a different kind of webbing that isn't smooth so it's very hard to adjust compared to most backpacks.

        I can never have enough pockets, but this bag is pretty great! I use this bag for work, so it's great for going from conference room to conference room. I also use it for personal travel as a carry on personal bag and it fits everything I need.

        Comments about Cask Laptop Backpack:

        I took it for work and business travel. It was a great business backpack. A little bit small though. Pretty much you can fit in your 15" computer, umbrella and some documents and that's it. I bought it in Nov. and the price dropped twice the day afterwards and later. Could have returned my original one and buy with new price. Eventually I gave up since I was busy with other stuff. I am a bit p*ssed off that Timbuk2 just randomly adjust the price. They kept sending you the email about 20, 30% off and how soon it would end. The next day there was a new discount coming up. Not a good business operation.

        Comments about Cask Laptop Backpack:

        I searched for weeks for the perfect minimalist backpack. I travel frequently and wanted something that was functional but also stylish. I was looking for a backpack that is bit more sophisticated so it doesn't look like I am going to school when I walk into a meeting with senior executives. This bag is exceptionally well built and I like how it holds its shape even when the bag isn't full. I bought the black on black which looks especially premium in my opinion. The bag is comfortable and easily fits everything I carry around on a daily basis without all the bulk of most backpacks. It's not inexpensive but a lot less than all the gear that I pack inside so I figured I might as well get something that looks good and will last forever.

            A fantastic backpack - but be carefull if ordering from Europe, I was taxed and feed an extra 100 USD after receiving it.

            Order to a US address!
