    Comments about Command Backpack:

    I started looking into backpacks with a lot of space for traveling. I came across this bag,and in spite of the lack of reviews/information out there, I decided to take a chance and purchase this bag and I haven't regretted it. The capacity and organization of the bag is impressive. The build quality is great, and the bag maintains a really slim, professional profile, especially when you cinch the straps on the bottom.

      I bought this to replace the old worn out backpack before a 2 week family trip to Japan. Used it daily and found it s size and features to be perfect. Haven't gotten a chance to confirm it's weather resistance yet but i would definitely recommend.

        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.
