    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.

            I just replaced my old Q with the new and was a bit disappointed that the new is a reverse of my old very well traveled Q. I carry my bag on my left shoulder and when going through airport security it was so nice to just roll the bag on my left shoulder and unzip the outer pocket for my passport etc. The new Q has some nice improvements but the reverse of the old very frustrated. I did emai support and all I could get was the new Q is very nice. Will be traveling with the new we will see how much I miss my log Q.

              Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

              I'm a full-time student and I need a backpack that will get me to campus and beyond for all my student needs. Initially, I was worried it would be too small for my books, but fear not! Currently, my backpack holds 4 semi-fat folders with 4 corresponding notebooks, 2 one-inch binders, a small notebook planner, a novel, 2 calculators, pencil case, my phone and headphones, some meds, and obviously my 13-inch macbook pro and charger. If I really need to, I can fit another folder into the back compartment where my laptop is. Even though I put in a lot off of books and papers, the overall design of the backpack is very compact so it doesn't look like you have 50lbs. on your back. It's stylish and comfortable; I can't wait to take it with me for traveling!

                This is my every day bag for gong to work. I carry a work laptop, 2 phones and all of the required chargers. This bag fits everything nicely and keeps its shape. A saggy laptop knapsack looks unprofessional - this one looks great.
