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.

          Bought as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend (who has an older Timbuk2 bag). He loved it! His words were it looks sophisticated! Which is the reason I got it. He's a graphic designer so it's perfect for meetings or daily travel in the city.

          The backpack is more modest than the commercials depict it, but overall is a solid backpack. It's only been used for the last two weeks, so time will tell about other properties.

          It is stylish though, and so far it was great in the rain.

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.
