    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.

                    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

                    Commuting with this everyday is a joy. It is comfortable and has just enough pockets inside and outside of the bag that makes it easy to get to whatever you need. My ONLY complaint that prevents this from being the best backpack for my needs is that it does not stand up on it's own when you have lots of stuff packed into the front exterior pockets. The bag just tips over forward and is so frustrating at times. It literally wants to lay on it's front side crushing whatever is in those front pockets. Even with a 15" macbook pro in the computer slot the bag still tips over forward. Very annoying! This would've been a simple problem to solve in testing before releasing this bag by putting some sort of stabilizer at the bottom of the large middle pocket. I may have to make my own stabilizer to enjoy this backpack going forward or this thing will be donated very soon!
