Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

I use this backpack for business travel and personal use. I am 6'4" and I wear size 14 shoe. I was able to pack my shoes and clothes for a day, (night & exercise clothes, long sleeve button down shirt and khaki) my laptop computer, and other accessories, including my 40oz vacuumed water bottle. And it all IN the backpack comfortably. The weight distribution was good. Backpack didn't weigh me down.

Excellent backpack!!

My only complaint now is not being able to convince the wife that I need to buy several more timbuk2 bags....

Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

Great for airports and travel. The bag sits well on my shoulders but could do with better padding for comfort. An internal holder for a slim water bottle would be great, along with the popular key clasp in the inner pocket. This bag looks great and moves well wherever I go. Great buy!

Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

The pack is used as a daily commute and International Business Travel holding my worldly electronics, clothing, comfort items and valuable personal belongings. There are pockets for everything and I like that very much once I get the hang of the layout.

It's swing out notebook and tablet pouch is the greatest - easing the pain of going through international airport security that makes TSA looks like Sunday School Kids.

I would wish that the pack is more weatherproof as I like in Asia and travel in all weather - I now cover it with a third party pack cover. I also wish to have horizontal compression straps to make the pack smaller and more stable when running with it.

    Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

    I use this primarily for travel. Of course, I love the TSA-compliant feature since I carry a laptop, an iPad, and a Kindle. Zip open, zip close. Easy. What remains amazing is the amount of stuff you can fit in it. Used to be that jamming a jacket or hoodie in a pack meant the thing looked stuff, and was stuffed. Now, I actually have extra space. From a style view, it doesn't look like back-packy, but is subdued. Very cool. For me, the perfect travel pack. One really minor thing is it doesn't have a clippy thing in the pockets for your keys. I added one, because otherwise it was always fishing around in the pocket to find the keys.

    The back back is great except I bought it in Feb and the back back straps are already fraying. The drawstrings on the zipper rip off when you close your backpack

          Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

          Purchased item, as I needed to carry a 15" laptop everyday and my previous bag was not large enough. I have been using the Command for 3 weeks. I take public transportation about 90% of the time. The Command was what I was looking for: great protection for laptop, enough room to pack a lunch, paper files, a small book. I like the option of the carry handle, as there are times when wearing a backpack is not appropriate or convenient. Comfortable to use. Enough pockets for me and size is about right for my needs. On warmer afternoons, have stowed down vests that I wore in the mornings under jackets. Never in a downpour with it, but in light rain and snow, gave good protection. I would highly recommend it to friends and I would purchase again for myself. Price is good for what you receive, even a better value on sale when I purchased. Constructed well, sewn well also. Hopefully will last as long as other Timbuk 2 items I have purchased over the years.

          This is a great bag with a comfortable fit. There is a lot of space in this bag, but there is also a lot of wasted space up high. I would love to see an attachment/pullout that was inside the main compartment. This would be super functional and practical.

            Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

            I got this bag when I was visiting San Francisco a couple years ago, it immediately stood out from the rest; they actually had the premium cordura version for cheaper but I still cashed out for the all-black nylon version. I thought it felt lightweight and durable.

            It became my faithful companion at all times, going on trips to Scandinavia, my Master's studies to Arabia, and back home. Even took it to a job interview which I ended up getting. This bag is amazing in many ways. I'm a faithful bike commuter all around, biking through the arid desert in arabia with groceries on my back while keeping them fresh, or just transporting valuable documents and a suit+change of clothes for a quick job assignment. The compression straps make it versatile while still looking amazing.

            Figuratively this became my best friend, transporting my heavy bulky workstation (lenovow520+charger) and later a macbookpro with no issues, either on a daily basis or not so frequent half the world away back-home trip. Withstood all this with negligible wear: This bag was solid. Perhaps not the most waterproof bag, but it will hold on for a few minutes with no worries.

            The straps are a bit funky, having to turn them to access the laptop compartment, but I can tell you that carrying a ton of stuff, this bag still felt comfortable on my back, practical, and I can't say that of other bags, were standing in the desert sun for 2 mins. makes you sweat, this bag kept it's cool. Plus the weight distribution is infallible, very important while cycling (had bad experiences on the past with other bags).

            Compartments for everything. Laptop and documents, Bigger everything storage, smaller front sized one for books or whatever, quick one for important stuff (charger or whatever), PADDED GLASSES POCKET EF-YEAH, and a cool front one for quick access to infinite haribo gummies and kindle and headphones and handy buff scarf (you never know where your flight connections will take you). Seriously, you can fit anything you can, and will need on a round the world flight. Essentials and a bit of extras.

            There is not enough praise on this bag, it's seriously cool looking, discrete, stands up when placed on the floor. Handles are SOLID. Seriously, get this bag, you will not regret it. Unfortunately I got this bag stolen recently when I got my car broken into while in Mexico. Seriously, the guys took the bag but not the rosetta+philae space mission memorabilia from a scientific conference at the international book fair in guadalajara, sad thing is that I had some books still inside, I will miss you forever my faithful companion, after two years I still thought you looked brand new to me. You couldn't have come soon enough and you left my side adventures before time.

            This bag is taller rather than wider, this makes it look sleek on your back, instead of the ones that look all bulky and wide sticking out of you like a boulder of sorts. No, this thing stays aero on your back: Boom! It may be a good idea to mention I'm 6ft tall, so it does feel nice. It will fit underneath any flight seat, and trust me, I've gone to embraer minijet lengths to get where I need to.

            After a while you can master the art of doing the zippers silently, specially useful in school or office settings while stealthily leaving early. Seriously, I loved this bag so much my girlfriend is jealous after reading this review. She even got one of her own too!
