    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

    The comfort is great! Love how I can expand the main pack space and flatten it when there's nothing there. A little uncomfortable of the straps hanging lose but it's not a bother so it's not a deal breaker. Not happy that I can't reach the cup mesh without taking off the backpack.

    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

    I own a number of Timbuk2 bags and this one has the quality construction that I've come to expect. With numerous pockets, it's just what I need for toting my stuff from the office. As with other Timbuk2 bags, the computer compartment is a very tight fit. Even though I checked my computer against the measurements provided, it just barely fits in the provided compartment and zips closed. This has always been my only complaint with the bags I've purchased.

      Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

      I use it mainly for city motorcycle commuting (as opposed to long distance riding). Wouldn't take much to convert this or a few other bags into motorcycle-specific backpacks. Most of those on the market aren't particularly stylish, but there are a few necessary features. Anyway, works well for this kind of commute.

          Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

          This was the New Year gift for my son. He loves it so much that he does not want to use the bulky heavy Northface backpack which I got him for Christmas anymore. He like its compact size, light weighted yet be able to fit everything he needs for an overnight trip. I've been a big fan of Timbuk for years. Another great causal bag I will recommend to my friends, thx!

          Bad specs! Doesn't fit Dell 15'' Otherwise great

            Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

            I bought this for a Dell laptop that is 15.15'' by 10.82"". The specs for the Showdown suggest it will fit a laptop up to 11.2 by 16.3. However, the laptop simply doesn't fit. The bag narrows too much near the top, and one corner of the laptop sticks out. This was disappointing. It seems to me that it would be more helpful if the specs were based on the dimensions of laptops that will fit, not just the simple dimensions of the bag. Otherwise, the bag is great.

                  I use it for work - the organization is awesome- I can swing it off one shoulder to grab my wallet or laptop. It fits a ton but it's remarkably low profile. I have about 75347886358986 bags and backpacks and this one is on top of list. Water repellent too.
