Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

For my daily bike commute I needed a good backback. Some keywords I went looking for: Quality, nice design, safe storage for my laptop, enough space to pack my evening groceries in the same bag.
This pack gloriously succeeds in all of the above. Downsides are there as well:

This pack is a bit is a bit heavier than my previous one which is probably due to its sturdy construction. The pack being spacious means it has a quite large and flat back panel which makes it a little warm on a long bicycle commute.

    Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

    I've had this backpack for about 9 months, now and I still love it. The arm straps are nicely padded without feeling bulky. I take it to and from the office every day and it continues to stand up to being tossed in and out of my car's truck or in the bins on the train. I love the quick access zipper so that I don't have to open the main compartment just to grab my laptop. The weird vertical zipper pocket underneath the flap top has become one of my favorite parts - I store pens, post-its and a stylus for my iPad in there so I can grab them quickly before or during meetings. I've traveled with this bag 5 or 6 times now through airports and it's come out unscathed every time. Sometimes I'm able to fit tech and clothes in there for 1 or 2 day trips. I've even been caught walking in the rain with it and nothing inside was even damp when I got home. Can't recommend highly enough!

    Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

    I frequently lug two laptops on my long commute. This bag accommodates both, along with all my other survival essentials. Mine is the black version, and it looks professional in the office. It's not like some student's book bag. One misunderstanding from the picture on web site: I thought the straps tucked inside when not in use. They don't. I looked at the picture again, and it shows the back of the bag with the straps folded to the front, not tucked in. Not a deal breaker. The only other minor criticism I have is the bag is tall, so some areas inside aren't easily accessed from the top opening. However, I have truly enjoyed carrying this bag everyday.

    Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

    Comfortable straps, weatherproof, and I like the style. The backpack is narrower in the middle than would seem from the dimensions, which makes stuffing it a bit difficult. The webbing provides some interesting opportunities for expansion though. A tear developed in the back padding but Timbuk2 replaced it right away. Thanks guys!

      Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

      This backpack was much cooler than I thought it would be. I really like the separate pockets for my MacBook and iPad. Plus, you can access them from the back zipper instead of going through the top. I carry the following everyday:

      1. MacBook Pro 13"
      2. iPad Air 2
      3. Bose QC25 headphones
      4. Apple Wireless Keyboard
      5. Backup Battery Charger
      6. Misc cables and tools
      7. 22oz water bottle
      8. 28oz Blender bottle

      With all of that, there is still a little room left. It feels like a quality backpack that will last many years. Highly recommended!

        Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

        Great backpack. I got it during a Timbuk2 sale and haven't looked back since! I bike regularly to school and the spire has an abundance of straps and pockets to hold all sorts of gear/books and has a wonderful back zipper to easily get out your laptop/tablet. This perhaps is one of my favorite features of the backpack. During the summer I used it as a laptop case at the office and I got many compliments. I also used it during day hikes and as a day pack for the city. I've biked through multiple storms with $3000 worth of tech inside and have had it been kept dry. All in all, I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

        Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

        I recently retired my Patagonia college backpack which held up surprisingly well for 4 years worth of daily use of 15 plus lbs everyday so I went searching for a bag with equal equality to commute to work but with a little more style for the business world. This pack does the job. It fits all I need: macbook, lunch, snacks, books, files ect. and still looks good.

        Yes it is not a very wide bag which makes it difficult to fit things like my large LSR camera on weekend trips but I can get around that by storing it at the very top. Over all I like the sleeker look that also makes it easier to slide into packed areas like subways.

        DOWN SIDE: I really only have two downsides to this pack. First, the top strap is not very adjustable. It would be nice to have a little versatility here to either further roll the top down or to expand the top to make it bigger. Second, the sides of the pack are not made of the same material as the rest. The top, front, and bottom are made of a super rugged and water resistant material while the sides are a thick canvas. Why they couldn't keep the same material on all sides to really make the bag weather proof is beyond me but as it is the bag is probably fine in some rain but if given time to let the sides soak your inside valuable may get wet.

          This bag is awesome. It's stylish and it's amazing how much stuff you can put init. I would buy it again tomorrow if I had too. The adjustable hook to close it (with the scratch) is great! Basically, the bag is only as back as what's in it.

            Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

            I bought this bag to prior to starting a new job and purchasing a Macbook (Air 13") for its protection and functionality. It has all the pockets I could use with separate slots for my Macbook and iPad with easy access through the back. I use it mainly for hauling my electronics, wallet, assorted items and lunch to and from work. It is very functional. My only complaint is the velcro and buckle. It is difficult to get into the main part of the bag when you're standing up. I would move my wallet to a side pocket, but I'd rather it be more secure in the main pocket. The buckle is tricky to maneuver when you're standing in line and in a hurry. Also, the shape of the bag is taking some time to grow on me. I would definitely buy another Timbuk2 bag again, but I might find something with an easier buckle and a rounder shape. However, this bag should last me quite a while and I am very happy with it.

              ...a high end black VW Passat. Why?
              1. European styling (in a good way)
              2. It looks high end, but, you didn't overpay
              3. Just enough details to make it look sophisticated
              4. Smart design...features are where they should be
              5. Only setback...the main cargo area (trunk) is deep once opened, can be hard to find the small things in the bottom
