    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 :-)

      Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

      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.

          i use this when i need to carry a gym bag and when i know i have a lot of paperwork to bring home from work. this easily fits an ipad, paperwork, sneakers and gym clothes.
          the only reason i didn't give it the full five ratings is because it doesn't have the signature red lanyard, nor does it have enough inside organizer pockets. otherwise, i love this streamlined backpack. this is the company to buy from if you want a backpack that can confidently handle long nyc commutes on the subway and socializing on weekends. the bottle opener is a nice touch.

            This backpack is great because not only does is not look like you're off to class, but it still has the functionality of a backpack.I think it has just enough pockets. The water bottle holder on the side is stretchy enough to fit a bigger water bottle. I got it in the grey color with a little blue and it's perfect. Goes with everything. Seems very well made and sturdy. Bought it for a trip in March.

            Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

            I love this backpack and use it every day for school!I bought it about a month ago and it has held up very well. The backpack looks slim but is surprisingly large (fits my two 1.5-inch binders, laptop, small planner, book, PE clothes and sneakers, as well as my phone, wallet, and snacks). However, I wish that it had some zippered pockets on the inside and more padding for the laptop sleeve (there is pretty much no padding on the inside, but this problem could be easily solved by lining the pocket with an old sock).
