      I ordered this custom backpack to replace my backpack that was (stolen) used to steal my computer and iPad from my house. I LOVE it. It's beautiful and I feel it was made with love. Quality is very important to me as I prefer to not have to replace stuff. So I hope this backpack equals the mileage of a Toyota. I also appreciate that it was hand made in SF. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3

        this replaced my first Timbuk2 bag, a laptop/messenger, that was over a decade old...and was still in perfect condition! I was just ready for something different. Went backpack-style this time. LOVE IT. Timbuk2 makes a flawless product!

          I bought this bag for my son as he prepares to head off to college. I was blown away by the overall quality of the bag and the materials used. The great side opening features really make it even more suitable for school than I had thought. I couldn't be happier supporting an American made product!

              I'm so happy with this backpack. At first I was a little skeptical for paying for a premium bag, but I certainly got my money's worth. Took a little while to get here, but I'm so happy with the quality and the custom design. Would definitely order it again, but it may last me a lifetime.

                  Comments about Custom Swig Backpack:

                  I did a lot of research on this bag before making the purchase. I wanted to make sure that the layout would work for my needs, that the design would sit low enough on my shoulders so as not to interfere with my motorcycle helmet, and that the materials chosen would indeed provide the reflectivity I was looking for. This bag had it all. Using the online platform, I designed the PERFECT motorcycle commuter bag for my needs. It's compact and doesn't interfere with my head motion of the tail bag that sits behind me on the bike, but it's also roomy enough on the inside to accommodate all the things I need for my workday. The compartmentalization is thoughtful and practical. The reflective materials available to choose from allowed me to create a bag that is both stylish and utilitarian. And I love that. Great bag. My new favorite, in fact. I would definitely buy it again if I needed to. It's a good thing this one will last a while so I don't have to.
