Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

It's definitely a nice and very functional bag. The pockets are great. My only complaints are: 1) the strap/handle on the top is pretty flimsy for (what could be) a heavy bag. – other bags have larger, more solid handles centered on the top of the bag.
2) the laptop sleeve being on the side of the bag looks nice but it can be a pain. If the bag is full and you take out your laptop, putting it back in can be tough, specifically on a place. – It would be nice if you can load it directly from the top and just slide it in.

    Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

    I used to have previous Q backpacks and I believe I purchased this new design in Aug 2014 close to when it was first released. Unfortunately this is the first Timbuk2 product I haven't liked at all and there's 2 reasons:

    1. The bag is ugly when it's on your back. The previous Q has a unique taper to the back/top so when you wore the bag it still tapered towards your body so the bag actually looked sleek and stylish. This new design tapers away from your body creating an incredibly awkward looking bag that's simply ugly. See my photos where I tried to recreate how it looks.

    2. The padding is AWFUL on the bottom side of the bag and it WILL make your laptop literally slam against concrete and hard surfaces if you're not careful. Timbuk2 has put great padding on the front and rear of the pocket, but the bottom side is not padded and relies on fabric to "catch" the laptop and suspend it. After a few months of commuting the laptop will literally just stretch the fabric to the point where it will hit the ground. I guess Timbuk2 wanted to create a padding scenario like this --> |-| but after it wears in it feels like this --> |_|

    Overall, this bag isn't what it used to be and I would look for something else if style and protection is your thing.

    Sorry Timbuk2.

      Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

      This is a great backpack for both work and travel. I like that it has a unique style and shape, but it doesn't look awkward. I live in a big city where lots of people bike/commute, and I've noticed that many of them use the messenger bags. I wanted something more comfortable, so I went with the backpack.

      It's 100% functional and comfortable, and it looks great. I've gotten lots of compliments - most people don't recognize that it's a Timbuk2 bag.

      My only complaint is that - like everything else - it is clearly made for right-handed people. I can't access the front zipper easily because it isn't natural for me to reach over my right shoulder.

      Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

      I'm 5' tall (short?) and I travel on trans-continental flights rather frequently. I had used my size S Timbuk2 laptop messenger bag for many of these flights and I decided I needed a bigger bag. This backpack fits the bill. It slides right under the seat in front of me (I flew EVA Air). I try not to put anything in the overhead compartment because I couldn't reach it....lol And because my legs are short, I can slide it out during the 15-hour flights to rest my feet on. I fit a ton of stuff in: My iPad, Kindle, a 200-page book, a scarf, sweatpants, my Timbuk2 passport wallet, my travel-kit (inflatable neck pillow, eye-cover, earplugs, a big stuff animal [don't judge me])...plus snacks and a water bottle on the side.

      One thing I wish this bag has is one extra compartment in the big compartment. Just a little pouch on the side maybe. But when I stuff this bag, it's almost too heavy so the size is perfect.

        Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

        When my son goes out I notice he likes to bring a backpack for all the things he just cannot live without! The Q bag is perfect for such occasions and he will be using it for travel in the summer as well. We love the special compartment for his computer and Q will facilitate all security check points. I'm tempted to borrow his bag whenever I got out too.

          Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

          It's been a great bag so far. Obviously well constructed and every detail is well thought out. I love the bag and have gotten some great compliments considering this is just a back pack. I'm a designer so I wanted something that looked good and could hold a good size laptop as well as 11x17 paper. The only negative I have is that I wish the large pouch had a little more room. I haven't filed it all the way up, but I can easily see for personal use ( traveling) that it could get filled up quickly. This is my second timbuk2 bag. I have a messenger bag that is 7-8 yrs old and still looks brand new. These guys know how to build a bag.
