    Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

    This has a great look to it and I got a lot of compliments on that, but I found myself continually saying the straps dug into my shoulders bc of very very little padding.

    Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

    This bag has a ton of storage, which is great but pretty easy to find. What I love is that the bag straps down to basically flatten unused compartments, meaning if you aren't using all the storage it's like carrying a much smaller bag. It's great to have a bag that I can use for everyday commuting on a busy train or for carrying larger loads around.

      Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

      I took this over to a 3 week tour in Taiwan for a musical church tour and this backpack has been so helpful in helping me carry all the equipment and wires I needed to carry that were necessary for each performance. Also I could store and separate my own ointments and vitamins in the various pockets and compartments it had. The only bad thing I have to say is that the water bottle holder wasn't too great as a bottle would slip out from time to time when I would pick up the backpack off the floor from where I was sitting or staying at.

      The only downside for me is the bottom of the backpack is not flat enough. So when I put it on the ground, it is easy to fall

      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.

      By VCP Chris

      About Me: Practical

      Pros

      • Stylish

      Cons

      • 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.
