Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

My household is chock full o' Timbuk2 stuff. Messenger bags, totes, camera inserts, mobile phone pouches, and more. While we all appreciate Timbuk2's burly construction and lifetime warranty on all of its products, pretty much every item has something that could have been done better. Usually it's a small detail, such as Velcro hooks on a flap facing towards clothing (better to have the pile side that way to avoid knit fabrics getting caught up) but sometimes it's a major problem like a rucksack that won't close properly unless it's fully loaded.

This time it's different, as the saying goes. The Command Laptop Backpack has been thoughtfully designed all the way through. It is truly a joy to wear and use. Every pocket, slot, buckle, and strap has been well thought out and elegantly blends form and function.

I have the Carbon Full-Cycle Twill color/fabric choice. This grey colored woven fabric gives the Command a soft, pleasant hand with a professional looking texture. And grey, of course, is a color that works well in pretty much all office, school, and travel situations. Overall, the Command has a nicely understated and minimalist look to it.

The most amazing thing about the design to my mind is that even though the Command is a 32-liter volume pack, it looks and feels like a much smaller pack. When it's not fully loaded and the bottom compression straps are pulled in, it feels, in both size and weight, almost like carrying a 20-liter daypack. Very nice. The other great feature is the TSA-compliant laptop compartment. When you're at an airport security checkpoint, all you have to do is flip the shoulder straps over to the front of the pack and open a zippered flap to expose your computer to TSA screeners. There's even a handle on the long edge of the pack that allows you to carry the bag like a briefcase when the shoulder straps have been rotated. Again, very nice.

Do keep two things in mind, though. First, while the suspension is very comfortable and highly adjustable, the Command isn't suitable for outdoor activity use because it doesn't have a waist strap. Second, anybody who is hard on bags might want to look at one of the nylon fabric color options. I don't think the Full-Cycle Twill will stand up to abrasion, moisture, and abuse as well as the regular nylon fabric.

Bottom line: five stars, for an incredibly well designed and constructed technology backpack.

    Comments about Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack:

    I love this bag. When I am not carrying much, it slims down with the compression straps, and when I have a ton of gear to carry, it accomodates it all. I love the TSA feature as well. Very simple style with plenty of small pockets to keep the little things from getting lost.
