    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

    I enjoy nice products, gadgets, internet finds and developing a timbuk2 addiction. It always takes time to make up my mind what my new backpack should look like and what type I would need. But for the second time, the timbuk2 choice was spot on.
    After purchasing it, I was updated with it's route to me, back in Europe, Netherlands. I liked the updates by the courier and saw the package crawling to me from 'Cisco. Upon arrival the package had a nice wrapping with routes to enjoy in San Francisco. So even more fun!

    Oh and by the way, the backpack is very usefull, sure it will be clumsy-me-proof as was the old one. It lasted me for 5 years, so this one has some expectations to live up to. We're heading for new adventures!

      Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

      I carry around lot of cables , chargers and other mish-mash, and the default bag that came with the laptop was just not suitable. After a fair bit of research, bought the Showdown recently and am very happy with it.

      3 external pockets keep stuff organized. Most important - stuff does not settle down at the bottom of the bag anymore so the bag feels less heavy.

      Great quality. Will recommend it to anyone who is looking for easy organizing. This is a mid size bag though , so not ideal if you are looking to use it for gym duty etc also.

        I bought this bag to replace my older timbuk2. Overall is good. I put everything in it.
        A place for umbrella would be nice.

          Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

          Use this bag for commuting on the train in the city. Perfect if you aren't hauling too much stuff back and forth between the office and home. Dedicated laptop sleeve along your back is perfect for newer, slimmer computers. One main storage compartment is great for folders, binders, books. Three smaller outside storage compartments (one is felt-lined) are great for your personal gadgets like wallet, phone, commuter pass, keys, glasses, chargers, etc. If you need two large compartments, this may not be the best choice.

            I commute from the suburbs to the Chicago Loop every day for work. I have a much-loved messenger bag from Tumbuk2, but I bought it when I wasn't walking as much on my commute. I love this backpack as it keeps me very well organized. My purses all become messes of wadded up receipts, but this stays austere because the compartments are so well designed. It is lightweight and I'm able to carry a large water thermos and coffee thermos easily. I just love how compact and light this pack is; I have a part-time photography business and have lots of different camera bags so I shop backpacks fairly often and this one is just flawless in its use of space.

                I use this bag when I'm out and about.

                For a backpack, it's not too big and not too small. I'm a fan of the design and separate small storage areas.

                I love the texture of the material, and was pleasantly surprised by the bag's solid construction and durability. Brand new, it's stiff and will need to be worn in.

                I haven't yet tried an overnight stay with this bag, but my primary concern would be large shoe or boot space as the main compartments are fairly slim.

                I would have preferred that the bag was made in the US. As it turns out, that may only be the case for custom builds.

                  Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

                  I commute about 40 minutes on the T in Boston. My original bag from these guys, while amazing was too bulky for that commute. I felt like the jerk on the train who was taking up two seats. This bag is the perfect solution to that issue. It has a sleek low profile, but I am able to carry two Laptops, an android tablet and my PMBOK book. As per my previous experience with TIMBUK2 everything is well beyond what I expected. I would recommend this bag to anyone who has a cramped commute but still needs a bag that can hold all that they need.

                    I use this bag to go to school. I love the pockets and the color/style. However, I would add a strap Above the side pocket component since my bottle keeps falling out of the pocket, and I would add a couple straps on the other side to be able to tie a jacket or something. Don't take off the straps on the bottom. Although you can place a jacket there it's not the same since it changes the look of the bag. Alone they add character and style.
