    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

    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.

        Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

        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.

            Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

            I bought this backpack when I realized it has the same design as the post office bag backpack I bought in the spring. I like the various zippered compartments, they make it easy for me to stay organized since I can "assign" a compartment to each of the categories of things I take with me -- keys, electronics, laptop, wallet.

                I am a student and this backpack just is not big enough. I cannot carry all the things I need for my day of classes in this backpack. Also, the back support makes my back sweat like crazy. Finally the zippers seem to be really faulty already and I just got the backpack. If it was bigger I and had better zippers I would like this a lot more.

                  I use this backpack for traveling, because of the compartment for the laptop. Easy access to the laptop, and well-cushioned. Was contemplating to buy a tablet to replace my laptop for travels, but the backpack makes it comfortable to bring my laptop along. Still a weight to carry, but at least it's manageable and I do not really perspire a lot on my back due to the well-ventilated cushions. And of course, you can just use one backpack and stuff a lot of things inside it.

                      I use this bag to carry my MacBook Pro. I love that the front compartments are divided instead of being one big giant disorganized area. I find the laptop compartment to be well padded, and overall the bag is comfortable to carry. I have not used it for biking or anything other than carrying my laptop to work. It has enough room in the separate main compartment for anything else I would normally bring to work (lunch, notebook, rain jacket). The bag seems well constructed and sturdy.
