    Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

    This backpack is small enough for a petite person to use and not appear as if they are overwhelmed by it. It has enough pockets to be able to organize your personal and work related items, and it fits comfortably on your shoulders. As I have been dealing with back pain for 6 months now, I had to find a sturdy and compact backpack to balance the weight of what I need on a daily basis while commuting to work, in order to protect myself from further back issues.

    Happy to say that this backpack is already proving to be the best choice!

    Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

    Great backpack , very suitable for business and travel, not too bulky. I like the clean lines and low bulk of the backpack, yet it is large enough for my 15" laptop and other work related material. The straps and handle are rugged enough to withstand my daily use.

      Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

      I got this backpack for my work laptop (15" Macbook Pro). It holds everything I normally carry in my purse and has room for a sweater, scarf, and a side pocket for my water bottle (17 oz S'well fits but it could accommodate a larger bottle).

      It's lightweight and comfortable to carry. It's smaller than I expected and that was a positive for me as I'm a petite woman. I love the bonus bottle opener on the strap although I haven't needed it since I got the bag last week!

        Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

        - bag can expand to fit quite a bit, but when you simply have a folder and a laptop, it doesn't look squashed. The unused space just kind of folds into itself, between the two zippers.

        - it would have been awesome if it could stand on its own, but I'd rather have it be lightweight, so I'll make do with propping this up when I need top-access.

          Bought this for a friend who stands about 5'2" and carries a giant North Face backpack. This suits her much better & I already own one to match :-)

          I bought this after my other timbuk2 bag was stolen. This turned out smaller than I thought and now I have buyer's regret, but it's functional and stylish, so I'll keep it for now. I still like the timbik2 brand and would buy from them again, but if you're looking for something that fits more, then I'd go with the Uptown.

          I like the small size of the bag but the downside is the lack of pockets for organization. I purchased a couple of organizer pouches and a Grid-it. Works great!

            I am a teacher that rides my bike to and from work. I bag that looked professional, would fit everything I need for teaching, and not be too bulky. This design accomplishes that well because the bag is so long that so much can fit. I am very happy wth this bag and it seems like it will last a long time.

              I got it for my wife as a gift because I have one. She uses it to commute to work and carry her computer with accessories, lunch container, phones, and extras. The best part with all of that in there the bag doesn't look bulky or over sized on her. Its the perfect fit and she loves how comfortable it is.
