    Don't be afraid to get the suede. I only had one panel on the flap with it but I should have gotten the entire cover flap in it.

    Comments about Custom Swig Backpack:

    I work remotely for 2-3 hours a day at home and the rest of the time in an office. My previous breifcase, tote bags, backpacks wore out every year or two. I thought the messenger bags woudl be prefect, but did not care for the feel of them. Then I tried this backtop and it looks different than anyone elses, semi-business-like. I lug my stuff as needed(lunch, new product pieces, file folders, tablet, computer, extra sweater) and it all fits.
    For occasional business or personal travel, I need to bring my laptop and this is a perfect under the seat bag. Could use some smaller compartments. My laptop does not slide out the cute side pocket even though it said the laptop fits. (It does fit.) Love that it's made it USA.

        I ordered this bag for my daughter for high school graduation. She will be attending university this September, so we love the look but she has not had an opportunity to use it yet. But she it will work out beautifully. Thanks for checking back.

            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!
