I just love the bag. It fits all I need for the day or what I need to have at hand during a long flight. It could just be a bit larger.

Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack 2014:

I use it M-F to and from work to transport my Macbook Pro 13'', water bottle, book, keys, phone, wallet, etc. I love the design. It was the most feminine design of the options.

It's comfortable, and it has great support, feels of high quality (albiet, a bit stiff), I love the one pocket with soft lining, and use it to put my keys and phone.

I would only use this backpack for work, day trips, maybe overnight traveling, but not for hiking or 2+ night traveling; the main compartment is not so big. and seems to carry more flat items.

Overall, I'm happy with the backpack, and plan to use it for a long, long time.

Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack 2014:

Just a small note: laptop compartment is very well designed and elecated. when you drop it mildly on the floor laptop doesnt seem to be effected. but the small gap between bottom of the bag and elevated part is a pain. if you accidentially put small stuff in there its really hard to take it out. but this is just a minor flaw compared with overall strenghts.

Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack 2014:

use for traveling by plane, checking 21 inch bag ,and carrying my purse items,charging cords,chargers,tablet and a spare outfit small tolitery kit,in the backpack so its the only thing I need to carry on board and the pack fits nicely under the seat or overhead. Holds a small lunch bag too.The cons are bottom outside pocket is a bit small to get things in and out of easliy,should be a pocket for holding larger sunglass the type that go over regular glasses.More color choices would be nice.Over all a very good well made bag would give a higer rateing if the small problems were fixed. Might be nice if one could lock the zippers.

    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack 2014:

    I use my new Showdown bag to bike commute about 10 minutes. I always bring my 15 inch MacBook Pro. Sometimes I'll have the power block and sometimes I'll load the main compartment with gym clothes.

    I love how compact it is when I only have my laptop. I also like the leather exterior. I like the multiple compartments on the outside and the small pouch in the "power block" compartment to house various small, computer-related gear. When I do bring my gym gear, the main pouch opens wide enough for shoes, clothes, and cinch bag. It may open further, I've not tried.

    I don't love how my hand is slightly too large for the bottom-most compartment. i can still get in, but it's just not easy. Sometimes the laptop gets stuck on the tablet sleeve when I'm putting it in. Now that I'm used to it, I can not hit the sleeve just fine. I use the small outside compartment since it 's the most convenient without taking the bag off. I put my keys and work badge in there. However, when I swing the bag back over my shoulder, the strap often flaps over and I have to untwist it.

      I use this backpack for work. Hiking back and forth across a large campus with my laptop and all my other essentials, I needed a pack that was both comfortable and spacious. My new pack does this, plus it's stylish and appeals to my over-organized nature.

        I've been on the search for an ideal laptop backpack that wouldn't look dorky, would work well for frequent business travel, and would have a solid and smart organizational layout. This backpack by far fits the bill for all of my criteria. I've had it for two years now and it looks brand new. Well designed and highly recommended!

        Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack 2014:

        I bought this on the basis it fitted my 15 inch (15.35" x 10.47" x 0.78")laptop using this website's device fit guide. Its fits fine in the main compartment. However it a very tight fit into the purpose built padded compartment, need to ride the zip over the corners of the laptop.

        A little disappointed the fit guide isn't actually accurate.
