Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

The top handle and side handles would be great if it handle a little bit of cushioning for when the bag is heavy. More individual pockets on the inside to organize things like usb drives, cables, adapters, etc.

        Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

        I'm a big fan of this backpack. I previously have been using a Command Messenger bag for when I fly, but decided to pick this one up to replace it. The backpack style distributes weight MUCH better than a messenger style bag, which is the main reason I decided to buy it. It 'seems' like it holds less than the Command messenger so if you have to pack A LOT of stuff, I might stick with the Command Messenger. I had it packed to the gills on my latest trip, but it held up well. The adjustable straps at the bottom to expand/contract the bag worked well. It says it's not weatherproof but I was out and about in rain/snow mix and it kept everything inside very dry. Granted, it wasn't a downpour or anything, but I wouldn't worry too much about getting it wet unless it's really bad out.

        I really like the look a feel of the fabric of this bag, and I have an iPad Mini that fits perfectly in the front pocket for easy on-plane access.

        The only things I don't like: I wish there were a few more pockets/containers on the inside of the bag. I carry a lot of individual, small items that I wish there were more smaller pockets for. The 'crush-proof' pocket on the front confounds me: It doesn't seem very 'crush proof' to me, and I wouldn't trust it with my sunglasses, which seems to be the primary purpose of it according to the pictures online. Other than those minor quibbles I love the bag! Highly recommend.

        Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

        Been using Timbuk2 products for awhile: first with their messenger bags, and to their backpacks.
        Hands down, this is the best backpack that I have owned. Very spacious with crimping straps to make it smaller when not using all the the available space in the bag. The straps are wide and comfortable, I am able to lug around a 15" laptop around with the all the accessories associated with it all day.
        The recycled tweed has a professional look to it. Very nice material with a great feel to it when touched. Not sure about the ability for it to repel water, but I would say it would be alright.

        Great for getting through security at the airport. It fits under the airline seats with no issues. The large compartment holds a light jacket and several smaller items. I do wish there were someway to keep all the items from settling to the bottom of the bag.

          Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

          I got this backpack specifically for travel for work. I have just used it once, so I can't comment on durability or wear. The backpack really protects my computer, though it just barely fits once I load up the backpack (macbook pro 15"). On this trip, I really loaded up the backpack, and I had plenty of room to spare. In fact, it was extremely heavy. That being said, it distributed the weight well on my small frame, and the straps were comfortable. The way I load up this pack will be a good test for durability - so stay tuned for 6 mos from now! I live in Portland, so I'll be able to test for waterproofness soon. So far, I'm extremely pleased! I gave 4 stars because this backpack hasn't been put through the paces yet.

          Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

          I work in Silicon Valley and fly down to Southern CA for 1-3 days at a time every other week. I pack all my clothes in a packing "cross" in the largest compartment of this bag, put my man-purse in the second largest pocket, and put my 13" laptop and iPad in the TSA pocket. It's heavy but it feels really comfortable on my back. I love the handheld straps tuck away, the water bottle holder, and the glasses pocket. I wish the bigger pocket opened all the way for easier insertion of my clothes, and that there was a shoulder only strap to carry it more messenger style, but these are minor nits. I've used it for a half dozen trips so far and I pack it bursting at the seams but it's been the best bag I've ever used.
