Comments about Ram Laptop Backpack:

Love the bag. It can hold up to a 17 dell laptop with a bit of room but not much. If you do use a larger laptop it makes stuff more into the bag a little more work. But I can fit my lunch, snacks, laptop, ipad, current school book, notebook, and all my supplies perfect. I could even put a sweatshirt or light jacket inside the flap and synch down if needed.
I would like to see if they could put an external water holder on it and make it in other sizes. This size is perfect but I would like to have one 1-2 inches bigger and then I could use it was a weekend getaway bag.

    Comments about Ram Laptop Backpack:

    Great bag! I mostly use this for work and business travel. I had been using the classic messenger and Q laptop backpack and absolutely loved them! Now I'm able to have the best of both worlds with a bag that can be used as both a backpack and a messenger! When I was using a backpack, it didn't look "professional" enough but a messenger was never fully balanced on my shoulders. Now I'm able to switch between the two very quickly! So things that could be improved would maybe be a water bottle holder and perhaps a specifically designed pouch or zip for my laptop cords, etc (similar to the Q backpack). Overall, a fantastic bag! Lastly, the customer service has been outstanding as well. I received very prompt and professional response to all of my questions and received service that was above and beyond my expectations! Thank you so much!

        Case is great. Replaced my timbuk2 control bag.

        Roomy, lots of pockets and quality looks to be great

        Strap pad is not that comfy and it does not slide easily to swing the bag from back to front. Front pockets are roomy, but somewhat tight to get in quickly.

          Comments about Ram Laptop Backpack:

          Pretty amazing bag... My friends were making fun of me, because I used to go to work with a standard backpack. They felt it wasn't professional enough. Personally, I prefer the backpack style when carrying heavy items and use the messenger style when commuting with a lighter load. This bag gives me the flexibility to do both.

          It also looks super professional in the slightly more "dull" colours that are currently available... and I'm very happy with it. There's tons of organization in the bag itself to keep papers and other materials.

          Comments about Ram Laptop Backpack:

          Very clever design functions and feels like a messenger when used throughout the work day, and easily transitions to a backpack for transport and jogging. The briefcase handle feels very robust and comfortable as well.

          The felt-lined laptop compartment works nicely against my tablet screen, and has some corner reinforcement. However, the messenger side that rests on the floor is only thick enough to protect against minor bumps. I lined the bottom with a spare shirt to give some greater protection, which now perfectly fits my Cintiq Companion.

          The size and carrying capacity of bag is equivalent to an average school backpack. If you fill the inner pockets in the main compartment, it gets a little tricky to fit a binder into place.

          My one major concern is that the messenger strap is rather tough, which feels like it is stuffed with a strip of a stiff foam floor mat, bringing poor ergonomics.

            I was having a hard time deciding between a more ergonomic backpack or a more accessible messenger bag. With this bag, I don't have to choose! It's the best of both worlds! Plenty of room for all of my gear, and then some, very lightweight, and nice looking, it's a great bag! I've already gotten several compliments on it!

              So many pockets, I found myself wishing there were a manual! Seriously, fewer pockets but some maybe a little bigger would be nice.

              The "reach-around" zipper closure turns out NOT to be for the computer, not that I need to whip it out in a hurry THAT often. Minor quibble.

              (Backpack) shoulder straps seem to be set up for someone a lot tinier than me! I have a hard time getting them on over winter clothing. These could use a little redesign.
