Quality and Customer Service Problems

Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

I purchased this bag a few weeks ago after seeing some good reviews of it online. As a bicycle commuter, it seemed to offer a lot of functionality I was missing in my prior bag. However, I had a quality issue with the bag as soon as I removed it from the packaging. The sternum strap broke the moment I attempted to unsnap it. I emailed customer service on July 23 and never heard back, and their auto-reply states that follow-up emails will send you to the end of the queue. So overall, it seems like there's a great design to the product, but it's not worth the quality issues and lack of customer support.

    Great pack, it's everything I'd hoped for. I had one of their one strap satchels and it was great but as I started carrying more to the office I felt like I needed more even weight distribution. So glad I made the switch to this.

      Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

      I have only had this bag for about a month, but I immediately fell in love with it and have been using it to tote all of my stuff during my commute every day since then. One thing I love is how this bag manages to simultaneously fit everything, including a 15" mac book, into a streamlined silhouette AND make it feel lighter than it did in my old backpack. I also love the positioning of the outer pockets and how much space each has - you'd never guess from the outside!! The only thing about this bag that I wish I could change is the orientation: both front pockets and the water bottle holder are closest to your right hand when its on your back, which makes them super accessible for most people, but which has made quickly grabbing things stashed in these an awkward exercise for my left-handed self. I'm getting used to it, though!! (maybe getting a left-handed version is already a thing and I missed it?)

        Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

        Wanted an everyday bag as well as a bag to replace my current travel bag (North Face Borealis) and this bag stacks up nicely. Great material, great styling, Timbuk2 has done it again with this bag. Loving every second of using it. Only complaint I would have is maybe an extra pocket (I love organizational compartments) and thicker shoulder straps. Just being nitpicky but honestly, this bag is as close to perfection as it gets. Kudos Timbuk2!

        Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

        Let's be clear I absolutely love this bag, I love the design, I love the quality and I love the flexibility of adding attachments.
        I bought this backpack really to protect my MacBook and needing space for my commute to work. I also wanted the easy access to the laptop.
        The big issue with this bag is you can't get much in it, it's so narrow that I can't really even get in a lunchbox. The bag is 32 litres but be warned that means you are struggling as it has no depth. When the bag is full the front pocket (only pocket) becomes redundant, you can't get anything in or out easily.
        It's painful and I hate the limitations but if I'm honest I still love it and can deal with the challenges. It's unique, it's cool and I love the design. Also not too many people with these in Australia.

        Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

        This bag had been on my wish-list for a while, and when it went on sale, I decided to go ahead and make the purchase. I was excited to replace my old Swiss Gear bag which was bulky and old with something more practical and water resistant.

        While I like the style and the roll-top approach I have found the overall feel to be very rigid. The straps don't allow much movement and don't give much when accessing my computer from the hidden zipper access. I also wish there were more pockets, at least on the interior.

          Not my first time buying this bag. Really love how it needs to be big when I need it and can be compressed when not needed. The compartment is spacious and is useful for gym, school or work. The laptop compartment is adequately protected and the easy access zip for the TSA easy access is useful whether going through airport or just needing to take the laptop out easily. It's also large enough for a short weekend getaway, being able to expand the top to about 25L. Lastly, it's stylish, rugged and practical, suitable for any event.

          Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

          I just got this a month ago and took it on a 6 day trip to NYC. In part because of the summer weather, I was able to pack super light and used this bag to carry all my stuff. That was awesome.

          The bag is deep and only loads from the top, so you have to dig for your stuff. Because it's deep, I wish Timbuk2 had used a contrasting fabric for the interior, it would have made it easier to find stuff.

          The bag is too big for me to use as a commute bag.

          It's not my favorite Timbuk2 product (I've owned ~5 over the years) but I'll definitely use it for trips.

          I commute about 10 miles a day and this bag has been great. I would strongly recommend. I like it much better than my messenger bag. For me it is just the right size it holds my computer, paper files,notebooks, bike gear, air pump, wrenches, lock, knife, chargers, pens, change of clothes, and I still have room to stop for groceries...not a lot of room, but room
