    Comments about Command Backpack:

    I LOVE the amount of pockets and compartments on this backpack. I have 3 Timbuk2 backpacks and this is by far my favorite because of the number of pockets. I also really like the texture and stylish design of this backpack. I can carry it even when I am dressed business professional because of the design on my job. Thumbs up and hopes this lasts a long time.

    Comments about Command Backpack:

    The bag is too flimsy. It needs more structure. Also, getting into the computer compartment is a pain since you have to go around the straps. Needs a little love, but it's a nice backpack.

        I really like it- it's high quality, and very nice-looking. I get tons of compliments on it from my coworkers.

        I'm sure there's still pockets and sections of the backpack I haven't even discovered yet.

          Comments about Command Backpack:

          I just bought a new 17" laptop. When I went looking for a bag that was big enough, my first stop was Timbuk2. Having had a few of their bags in the past (mostly messenger bags), I knew I like their product. I was pleased to find that Timbuk2 had a "fitting guide" online. I plugged in my new laptop, and it said it was a fit. When the bag arrived, I was disappointed to find out that my laptop didn't fit in the laptop compartment. In fact, it barely fit in the bag at all. The compartment it did fit in was so snug that the corners of the computer would have easily worn out the bag in very little time. Plus, there was no added protection in the only compartment it fit in. I would suggest that Timbuk2 make sure that their "fitting guide" is updated with the most recent specs before suggesting that their bag would hold a specific laptop.

          Comments about Command Backpack:

          I've used this pack for about one month on one domestic and one international trip. I'm excited to have an actual back pack, but it does not really have the pockets and organization I'd become used to in the command messenger bag. The water bottle mesh is too short. A bottle falls out every time I've used it, so it's pretty much useless in my opinion. I really thought there would be more internal pockets that are zipped. My bag frequency finds itself upside down and contents spill out in the bag or out of bag if not in zipped up pockets. I also find the back pack straps to be in the way when trying to access the PC or iPad. Now I know why they flip them out of the way in the video demo. Also, the pen slots and other open pockets don't work too well when the zoppied pockets are full since there was not any excess fabric available. Maybe I cram too much in the zipped pockets, but then see above when pack gets up-ended.
          I'd looked at this bag online for sometime before buying. Glad I got the sale price, otherwise I'd probably return it. I've got 5 or 6 other TB2 bags, and this is the first one to disappoint.

            DO google to check photo from other consummer for accurate colour representation of the bag. It is hard for oversea customer to do return as who will want to pay half of the bag price to ship the return item back to US...
