Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

I've used this backpack daily as a college student and at my full-time job for the last nine months and it is amazing. Very durable, and does not show any signs of wear yet. I also took it on a three-week trip through Europe that required a lot of walking and I had it with me every day. It got pretty dirty but the dirt practically fell off the bag (no washing required) within the next few days. It is a great size, not to big or bulky but still has enough space to fit my laptop as well as a couple of books or some clothing. The bag is somewhat waterproof, with only some water seeping through the zipper portion after a ten-minute walk in the rain. This is an amazing product, I will be keeping it forever!

Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

This backpack is a great choice for school-aged kids but it cannot fit loads of stuff. Otherwise, it's a cleverly designed and made backpack that justifies the price tag.

    Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

    I use the bag for work, carrying my 12" laptop, a notebook and manuscripts. Enjoy the size of the bag - it is very slim and easy to carry day in, day out. Just wish the computer sleeve had some padding.

      Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

      I wanted a backpack that was light and small, but could fit my library books, a change of clothes for after work workouts, and my tablet. I love this backpack! It's just what I was looking for when I'm tripping around the city on foot or bike and also when traveling. As a petite woman, it fits me really well. I didn't want a backpack that would overwhelm my frame or my look. I wish that it had a few more pockets inside the first compartment, like a zippered slot inside or a key ring, but it's a basic pack. It definitely needs a front chest strap, which I'll have to purchase, but I would make that a required feature since it can get pull back on your back if it's too full. I think it's durable and I've worn it in the wind, rain, and drizzle. Thanks for making such a great backpack!

      Comments about Parkside Laptop Backpack:

      Use the backpack to commute and for travel. It easily carries what I usually carry, and has room for more. Straps sit comfortably, and the material seems tough. Wish there were a few smaller pockets, and an additional mesh pocket on other side. But all in all very well designed, and well put together.

Its roomy main compartment can accommodate layers and a pair of shoes, and its external water bottle pocket doubles as a u-lock holder for days you get to ride.
