    I didn't have the luxury of being able to see/touch this bag before purchasing but when it arrived i was extremely happy - it looks like it's built to last forever, while still very practical and great looking. I had some shipping issues as well but Tb2's customer service was extremely friendly and helpful - i recommend Tb2 very highly!

      Comments about Ram Laptop Backpack:

      This bag is PERFECT for grad students and/or business travelers. Its a backpack when you are running from the parking lot to class or through an airport. Its a messenger when are headed to a meeting. I've only had the bag a few days but I am in love. My search for the elusive 'perfect bag' has ended. Two small cons: it is missing the key hook/clasp and because it can be use as a backpack and messenger there is no external pocket/compartment for a water bottle (fits easily inside though).

      Comments about Ram Laptop Backpack:

      I'm a small 5'2 girl and I was initially worried when I ordered it that the bag would be too big or heavy for me. However, it was the only backpack/messenger that wasn't a Large that I could find at the time. I took a risk and I love my bag. I have 2 other timbuk2 messengers and they both had the same basic problem. They were not built for a small person that carries ALOT of things. I'm in medical school so in addition to my laptop, I also have a ton of papers and books. The other messengers would leave bruises on my shoulders and no matter the length of the strap it would either bump my butt all the time or eat into my back. This new bag solves that problem by being a backpack when I need it at school, but when I leave to go into the clinic I can wear it temporarily on my shoulder to look professional. Not to mention that the strap padding on this bag (messenger style) is great compared to my previous timbuk2 bags. It seemed stiff at first but I was surprised at how much more comfortable it was compared to my other bag while carrying the same load.

      The laptop carrying area is slightly padded, but since my laptop is 13" I can keep it in a second laptop sleeve so it's really well protected. There are plenty of pockets and I often forget where I put something.

      The only difficult thing is switching from messenger to backpack on the go. I live in NYC so if something can't happen with one swift motion then it's too slow. The pockets are most accessible in messenger mode due to the orientation of the bag, but I wear it most often in backpack mode so sometimes this can get hairy; like when you're on a long line for the ATM and you need to get in and out quick.

      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.

              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.
