    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

    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.

    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

    This is the 4th showdown I owned. I think its my most fav backpack. I like the fact that there are enough compartments at the front for my different stuffs. I like them to be organised. I use the showndown for work and I have also brought it for travel. Its big enough for my ipad or laptop. Plus a sweater. And still have room.

    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

    Great backpack for commuters and students! Fits everything really nicely. I haven't really figured out the best place for my U lock in the bag, but everything fits so I can basically put it anywhere! Only problem with this pack is that the water bottle compartment is a little short and small; it barely fits my large Nalgene and to keep it from falling out I connect it to the pack with a carabiner.

    Comments about Showdown Laptop Backpack:

    I love this bag. For me, the perfect size backpack is about 19-23 liters. Anything larger and you have too much weight on your back. The 3 front pockets are well organized. The soft-lined pocket is good for a cell phone or your expensive pocket knives. The long pocket carries flashlights, extra magazines, and my laptop charger. The main front compartment carries a few notebooks and a fixed knife as well as a change of clothes well. The back pocket carries my 13.3 laptop well. I like that this pocket has a liner stop about and inch from the bottom of the bag so your laptop does not bump the floor when you put your bag down. I have other bags that have separate pockets to conceal a gun. This bag doesn't have one and that's my only issue with the bag. It's not a big deal as it's better to carry in the waistband for faster access anyway. I got this as a birthday gift. I would absolutely buy one if I didn't get this as a gift.

      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.

            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.
