Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

I had high hopes given the other reviews and the TSA laptop sleeve. It fits a Macbook 15" nicely but main front panel was crooked clocked counter clockwise a few degrees.

To make it appear straight I adjusted the straps but then it was loaded on one shoulder.

If it were made right it would be a decent backpack.

Used this as one of two carry on bags for an international study trip with university students. Great bag - comfy to wear, looks good, nice slim profile so I could move with it easily, and fits plenty of stuff. I loved it and will definitely buy from Timbuk2 again!

Great looking bag, but bad stitching on mine.

  • Stitching

Best Uses

  • Commuting

Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

Let's start off by saying that this is a great looking backpack. I've only had it for two weeks and had 3 people ask about it.

Unfortunately I've told them all that the first time that I hung a camelbak water bottle on it while enroute to a job site, the stitching tore and the water bottle went flying. Keep in mind, I was just walking, not flinging it around. Also, the stitching seems to be fraying around the zipper.

I have a bunch of other Timbuk2 products and this has been the only one that has been subpar, so don't let this discourage you from buying any of their other products.

    Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

    I bought this bag because of a recent career change. In my new role, I will be doing travel on occasion. I used this bag during a recent weekend conference as my only carry on bag. I was able to fit a 3-ring notebook, a weekend's worth of clothing and toiletries, a paperback, large headphones, and a kindle comfortably. I am a short woman (5'4-ish),and this bag hugged me nicely and fit under the seat on the plane.

    Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

    I bought this for use in law school. I like that it fits my macbook, kindle, and some notebooks. All my casebooks are digital this semester, so the only other things I toss in are smaller rule books and the like. Sometimes a jacket.

    I have a lot of pens, pencils, highlighters. And things that you put in tiny pockets. This has a lot of options for me. HOWEVER. The small section that has most of the pockets for the pens flops around when it's loaded. Very frustrating. Makes it hard for me to get them out, they constantly dump out on me, especially if I forgot to zip the pocket back up. Almost a deal-breaker for me. I think I'll need to get a pencil case, didn't really want to.

    It is very comfortable on my body as long as I don't put too much weight in it. I've been in a good amount of car accidents, so anything too much creates a lot of pain. I can load this one that full, but I try not to. Someone else might not have the same issues.

      Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

      I use this pack mostly to transport my personal to and from the office. Occasionally it travels with me (and that's when the TSA friendly laptop sleeve is SUPER convenient - otherwise it just seems kind of impractical, and honestly, kind of silly). I do like the fact that the laptop sleeve is on the back of the pack in it's own separate section. It has enough room to carry the supplies I need with room to spare for binders, textbooks, etc. I would highly recommend this to the light commuter or student, but if you're looking for something you can really beat up, this might not be the right option for you.
