Comments about Rogue Laptop Backpack:

User
If you are a commuter in need of a reliable and durable backpack, then the Timbuk2 Rogue Laptop Backpack is for you. This backpack is perfect for someone who spends time traveling from home to work or home to school in need of a bag that can keep their necessities organized and protected.

Product Criteria
Evaluating the product included comfortability, protection, water resistance, space, and support. Commuting each day, or 5 days a week, involves lots of moving around so you need a bag that is comfortable and supportive on your back. Items stored inside your backpack must be protected, especially from the weather, in case you get caught walking or biking through a rain storm. A spacious bag is crucial so that you have enough room for all of your belongings.

Positive Characteristics
When you wear this backpack, the straps are very comfortable because of the mesh padding. Since the mesh padding is against your skin, you can wear the backpack without your shoulders covered, knowing that the strap will feel comfortable.

Having a bag that is waterproof is extra important because being a commuter requires either walking or biking. The Rogue backpack is heavily reliable for keeping your items protected from any sort of weather because of the water resistant fabric surrounding the entire bag.

The square shape of the backpack allows for ideal arrangement for packing and also the perfect shape to fit under your desk seat in class. The cover straps allow extra space in the main compartment for moments when you need to push extra items inside, but still being able to fasten and tighten the straps for security.

Stiff back support exists while you wear this backpack, especially if you often carry many items in your bag like your books, lunch box, laptop, and a charger.

Negative Characteristics
The interior space on the inside does not contain many pockets. Yet, this has actually been more helpful because I find myself only bringing my necessities and not lugging around extra items that I do not need.

Bottom Line
All in all, this backpack is well-designed if you are looking for an optimal backpack for travel that you can rely on to be spacious and durable.

Comments about Rogue Laptop Backpack:

Currently finishing up my last year of college in Portland, OR and man this backpack is situated for this city and its weather. It performs well when you over load because of it's amazing straps that are actually pretty strong. I tend to always carry my laptop around where ever I go and this backpack makes easy for you to store and keep your laptop safe. It is very spacious inside. I usually put books in it but I have also been able to fit a 12 pack in there and it was very comfortable to carry around. This backpack has great support.

Comments about Rogue Laptop Backpack:

I use this for my daily bus commute to and from work and bought it because I wanted something practical but also relatively professional/classic looking. This backpack is lightweight but sturdy and comfortable to wear. I like that it's relatively narrow so that I'm not in everyone's way on the bus. Easily fits a change of clothes and toiletries for work plus my lunch. It would be perfect if it had one more zippered pocket but that's a minor concern. I'm a 5'8", athletically built woman and it's the perfect size for me. I've only had it about a month so can't comment om the durability but I absolutely love it so far.

    This bag saved my back. I was using a (Timbuk2) laptop messenger bag to carry all my stuff and had back pain. Switching styles helped tremendously. Awesome bag, too.

          Comments about Rogue Laptop Backpack:

          I mainly use this as my daily carry to take the essentials i need when i'm at work, hanging out at a coffee shop, or walking around town.

          Took this to SD for comic-con weekend and it was great. Front exterior pocket let me keep my external battery handy. Inside pocket held my little things like memory cards/cables. Main compartment held my tablet, camera, monopod, and 3ds. external webbing let me hang a bendy tripod on the outside.
          Size of the bag was perfect for navigating crowded halls without whacking people as I walked by.

          I especially like that the cover straps let you maximize the main compartments space for when you gotta shove a few extra items in there and still keep everything secure.

          My only nitpick would be that the laptop holder is pretty minimal on padding, but the compartment is slightly raised and the back of the bag seems sturdy and supportive enough to provide a bit of protection so not a big deal.

          Style looks great, I've gotten a bunch of compliments about its looks. little extras like the bottle opener and daisy-chain webbing are great.

          It lets me carry all my daily essentials, is comfortable to wear, the materials and build quality feel solid, and it looks great. Overall, great value.

            Comments about Rogue Laptop Backpack:

            I can do anything/go anywhere with the Rogue backpack. It sufficiently held everything I needed for a four-day trip and acted as my only personal item on a flight. It sufficiently holds everything I need for a day commuting across town (via car or bike). On a typical day, I carry a laptop and charger, books, a lunch, and it still has room for other items as I need them. I got caught in the rain on my way to the metro yesterday and trusted that my books and laptop would be kept safe and dry.

            While the pack is roomy, I've found that there are considerably fewer smaller compartments than other backpacks I've seen. However, for me, this has been a blessing in disguise, requiring that I take only what I need instead of storing things in small pockets that I'll later forget about, unknowingly carrying their weight everywhere I go. Additionally, at moments, I have found the straps to be somewhat uncomfortable on my neck, but haven't worn the backpack for a long enough duration to find this to be a problem.

            After weeks of searching for the ideal backpack, I have found it (and at an irresistible price). I have complete confidence that this backpack will last a long while!

              Use the bag mostly for bike commuting to work and around town. Love the stiff back support that gold the shape and spreads the weight without being uncomfortable. Like the velcro closure with the option to use straps. If I am doing short rides I will leave it unclipped. Could use a other side pocket. I like to use those for quick access items like keys to the lock or phone, this bag only has one and I think it is on my less convenient side. Other than that I like the simplicity of one big compartment, with the one small outside pocket and one small inside pocket.

              What's this all about?

              A military-inspired backpack with a slim, urban profile, the Rogue samples went fast in the Timbuk2 office. Clean on the outside, the Rogue is rather clever on the inside. A stretchy, air mesh laptop sleeve keeps your laptop safe and cool and internal organization provides a place for pens and power cords. On the outside, its cushy straps are super comfortable and come with a bottle opener for hydrations emergencies. And as a nod to the hardcore, daisy-chain webbing provides attachment points for your U-lock, carabiners or more serious strap-on accessories, but they're designed to look good naked too. Do as you wish.
