    Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

    I wanted a professional looking backpack that could also handle a weekend getaway without any issues. On a recent trip I was able to take:
    1 iPad mini
    4 scarfs
    A pair of Teva sandals
    2 pairs of regular shorts
    1 pair of swimming shorts
    5 T-shirts
    1 light rain jacket
    All of my medications
    2 pairs of sunglasses
    1 external phone battery and associated cords

    And it all fit without it looking to bulky or misshaped.

    I do wish the side mesh pocket had a little bit more capacity to easily fit wider water bottles, but this is a small complaint and does not ruin how much I love this bag.

        Great backpack and one of my favorite Timbuk2 bags. Styling is professional and clean and multiple handles allow it to be carried like a briefcase as well. Pocket design allows for exceptional organization. I do a lot of walking between job sites and using the backpack (over my prior messenger bag) allows for a more even distribution of the load, which translates to more comfort. The TSA friendly design is also great when traveling.

        Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

        I have enjoyed using the pack for my daily commute, but less so when biking. The bag rides up a bit on my back while in the riding position. This alone would not be a big deal, but it also causes the straps to dig into my neck. I love the bag while I am walking with it, but think the top part of the straps could use some improvement.

            This is definitely the best backpack I've owned. It can't compare anything else to it. It's stylish, has tons of pockets, and doesn't want me wishing for more. I work in IT so I'm frequently carrying around several laptops, tools, and back-up drives. It just ROCKS!

              Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

              I use the backpack on a daily basis. I used it to go back and forth from work. I haven't had a chance to take it on an airplane, but I will soon. The back pocket is perfect for carrying my laptop. I also have a small tablet that is great for the front pocket. There is also a phone pocket that is lined with felt. I still pocket my phone, but I keep my iPod in that pocket.

              I do have an insulated lunch bag I carry occasionally as well. The main pocket it a little tight to carry it, but it does work. This would be a great bag for people who travel a lot. It's got a lot of good pockets to carry everything you need to keep with you.

                Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

                I literally went around the world with this bag and abroad several times since and it's still going strong. Even when I pack it until it's bursting at the seams, I can still reliably cram it underneath most all airline seats. That's due in large part to its sleek, almost pill-like shape and lack of exterior embellishments. The easy-to-access compartments on the front and just inside the first large compartment give me lots of places where I can stash or retrieve small items quickly. By volume and raw interior space, it's one of the largest bags Timbuk2 offers, which is why I initially bought it. I don't work in a traditional business setting where I require something so traditional looking, but the functionality of this bag (and its size) outweighed its slightly boring look.

                Things I would love to see on the next generation of this product:
                1. Make a custom option or at least offer a couple less drab color choices. I love how practical it is, but having something brighter would be nice.
                2. Make the bottom available in an optional waterproof fabric. I took mine to several dirty places and it would be great not to worry where I'm setting it.
                3. Make the straps just a little wider because if there's anyone out there like me, their bag is really heavy.
                4. Have a tiny place on the side to put a business card or luggage tag insert like on the Co-Pilot. It's nice not having a traditional luggage tag hanging from a bag in the event you need one.

                It needs to have more space....

                  Bought back pack to replace my timbuk2 messenger bag as I need more space and wanted a backpack. Perfect for those same day or overnight business trips. Can fit my next day's clothes, morning bag, laptop, iPad and all other necessary travel devices. Perfectly comfortable, fits in those overhead tiny airplane bins with ease (even packed fully). Very stylish, not your standard black corporate backpack that travel the airports daily. Getting ready to take on my next several 1-2 day business trips. Thanks for a great product TimBuk2

                    Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

                    This bag can pack a lot of stuff it's rather surprising. Took it for travel and it easily holds 3-4 shirts, an extra pair of pants, toiletries etc., with room to spare for small electronics, some documents, and a 15" laptop, while perfectly maintaining its form factor.

                    It comes with a sternum strap which I found really helpful when I was lugging this around through airports, streets, etc. with a full load. It helps keep the weight centered on your body rather than pulling on shoulders apart. It makes a lot of difference.

                    For days where I only have to bring a few stuff, you can cinch it down to a flatter profile without it looking squished like most other backpacks do. This is really well designed.

                    The material feel durable and I expect it to last a long time. Although it's not completely waterproof, it keeps water out really well during light rains.

                    Only complaint is that the water-bottle holder only fits those tall and slender bottles, but is too shallow to hold them in place securely. It's the perfect place to stash a Timbuk2 Rain Cover, though.
