    Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

    I'm a bus commuter and have a 0.7 mile walk to my destination (one-way). I replaced a typical "student" backpack that had too much capacity for my needs. My key product requirements were mid-size, nylon construction (instead of poly), lots of pockets/dividers, under 2.5 lbs, a padded laptop compartment (not a sleeve) that is separate from the main storage area, a product guarantee, and priced under $100. This backpack met all of those requirements. I usually carry a 15" laptop with power brick, a book for reading (which fits in the same pouch as the laptop), lunch, umbrella, and other small items. No issues fitting and organizing all that I carry. The fit is comfortable (I'm 6'3")If you carry a lot of books for school, this backpack may not have the capacity you need (although it does have some elasticity to expand). No negative comments, but one suggestion: make the water bottle pocket deeper to hold an umbrella (it has a tendency to come out).

      Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

      Had the bag for over a month now and received too many compliments to count! Lots of pockets to help keep me organized and easily find stuff on the go. Fashionable enough that I can use it in my personal life but elegant enough to wear it in a casual office setting. Great for flying or walking to work. The only slight drawback is the main compartment is a decent size but after a few books or a few clothes, its totally full.

      Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

      I use this bag for school, and it is nice as long as you don't have textbooks. If you have textbooks, it could get heavy against your back. If I could change anything on the bag it would be that the zipper on the laptop pocket doesn't open all the way, which makes it a tight fit if you have a tablet and a laptop in there at once. The main pocket holds all of my notebooks, and a few small textbooks. Everything does fit nicely in my bag aside from the whole laptop thing.

      Best gift I could have bought

      By Miss Moci

      Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

      I had the idea of a laptop backpack as birthday gift for my boyfriend. I did some research online and TIMBUK2 was one of the most recommended brands so I checked it out. The designs were by far the best ones I found. My boyfriend is super happy with the backpack. He uses it for work and also for weekend trips. It stores everything perfectly and is super comfy.

            Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

            In a sea of generic laptop backpacks its nice to find something with a bit of style that's still functional. While I often use a more outdoorsy backpack there are times when something a little more understated and professional is required and that's where the Q fits perfectly. Its a low profile pack that carries my laptop and my iPad close to the body without any added bulk. Yes. it will carry some other supplies but in the city I keep it slim. The fabrics and textures are great.

            On another note, its a big pack, by that I mean tall and wide. It swallows my 15" work laptop with plenty of room to spare and my 13" MacBook Pro looks absolutely tiny inside but I'm fine with that. Its a great bag for a professional on the go that doesn't want to blend in the masses of generic cheap black laptop bags.

              Comments about Q Laptop Backpack:

              Love it so far and priced right for similar purposes products. Unique product that differentiates me from the rest of the normal transit commuters!

              Bag design allows for near vertical alignment wth back so there is no strain, bag does not bulge out when filled with items. Can barely notice carrying a load compared to previous laptop bag which was bulky and awkward and apparently ugly!

              Tricot lined pocket is slightly small for sun glasses and smartphone, sometimes difficult to get both in. Zipper dimensions a bit too tight for iPhone6 with case, need to make effort which is frustrating. Larger smartphones will have more trouble.

              Smart design and perfect for commuting and travel with business and school related items.

              No comment on durability or weatherproofing yet, too new and it is always sunny in Arizona.

              This overall is a great bag. I bought it for my son who is getting ready to go to college. It's perfect for all his stuff. Good quality. The coloring was different than I expected when we got it, but it's still a great bag.

The front panel unzips to reveal a command center - full of places for pens, cords, cards, and keys.

Finally, the Q's legitimately comfortably straps and ventilated back panel will keep you looking fresh and ready to rock, even when you'd rather be retired.
