      Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

      So far this is the best backpack I've ordered from Timbuk2. I love the power brick pocket in the lower front of the bag. It's convenient and keeps the weight of the power brick at the bottom of the bag so it doesn't tip over. Also, if you're not a fan of cinch straps on the bottom of a backpack, this one doesn't have any.

      Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

      I switched to this bag from a Timbuk2 medium laptop messenger to save my lower back (I got to the point where I couldn't carry a fully loaded bag across my shoulder, for my entire commute, without showing up to campus in pain). With the same load, this backpack is way more comfortable, and it's stylish enough that I don't feel like one of the students. Four weeks into the semester, I'm still really happy with it. That said, it is HUGE. My 13" laptop almost gets lost in the laptop compartment (and do enough people actually own 17" laptops that this needs to be possible on a standard-sized bag?). I'd love one more internal divider in the largest compartment, so I could keep files/folders and books separate, while I have yet to find a use for the small pocket on the very back (too small for books and papers, too flat for chargers or lunch--right now I carry my kindle there for easy access while commuting, but that's about it).

      Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

      I am a Ph.D. student and my research involves media, so I am always toting around tons of stuff. Add to that that my time is split between the U.S. and the U.K. I see a lot of airports. I am also terrible at organisation, not so great when airport security sometimes requires everything with a wire/cord to be separated out. With this bag I carried a Macbook, iPad, iPhone, over-ear headphones, and a portable gaming device, and cords for all of these devices, along with notebooks, books, pens, pencils, keys, boarding passes, travel documents, extra underwear and a t-shirt, and odds and ends I ended up collecting along the way. I kept all of my cords in the power cord pocket, and while I still had to remove my laptop and iPad, it's a snap with a the designated pocket. It easily fits under the seat on the aircraft (even the small commuter jets). The smartphone pocket is great when I'm in meetings because I can pop it in there and always know where it is when the meeting is over. I have received many compliments on the bag in the three weeks I've had it. I've yet to test it in the Scottish weather but it's only a matter of time, and really, asking most bags to stand up to Scottish weather is asking a lot. My main worry when I bought the bag was that it would be smaller than my last bag, but actually it fits just a much, and because of the great organisation it distributes the weight better and saves me from digging until I can find what I'm looking for. I foresee a long and happy life together.

                This is hands down the best backpack I have ever used. I personally carry a Lenovo T430 with extended battery, 2 iPads (iPad Mini and iPad Air), 2 notebooks, various chargers, USB mouse, pens, etc and I still have tons of room left. It feels very light on my back and does not extend too far out to make me look like I have 20 college textbooks on me. It also looks very stylish! Cannot go wrong here
