      Comments about Command Backpack:

      I commute with this bag daily and it is great. It keeps its shape when full or empltt and does not get all saggy like a loaded diaper. Lots of pockets keep my things organized. Light to moderate rain are no problem - I have had no leaks. Just walked eight miles in Manhattan with a full pack and it was comfortable all day. Very happy with this bag!

        Comments about Command Backpack:

        I was looking for a bag which was a little more streamlined and stylish than your typical large black work backpack you see many carry...as I did for a few years.

        I was impressed with the gray finish on this and different compartments so I thought I'd give it a try. The demo videos posted on the site were very helpful in making my decision on which bag to choose.

        I did find it took a little bit to get used to the fit on my back...seemed a little higher than I was used to. But after using it for a week plus I can say I'm glad I found this bag and purchased it. I like the security of the laptop pocket being between your back and the front of the bag...so it has to be off for you to take it out. The slash/front pockets are useful for items which are frequently accessed, glasses, charger, keys, access cards. And the main pockets offer plenty of space for other items you may carry.

        Also glad to support an American company.

        I use this every day, and it has not let up on me yet. I would have loved for it to have a similar rain protection in case we see any more here in California, but otherwise this works great and gets lots of envious stares

          Awesome for travel. Especially if you are on a short trip with just this bag. Fits great under seat on plane. Love the laptop section, very front pocket for keys/work id/bible, top pocket for sunglasses protection, big section for clothes/lunch. Great for commuting on train. My favorite bag ever. Definitely will buy more products!

              I use the command backpack everyday commuting to work, it securely holds my laptop and everything else I need and is super comfortable. The nylon exterior is tough and overall feels very well made... Also it looks really cool!
