Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

The bag is great! It is great for school. The front pocket is large enough to hold all of my small essentials that I would like to get to without opening the main compartment. There is a small side "secret" pocket that is great for storing keys, bus passes, and wallets. The main compartment is very deep. This is both a pro and a con. For weekend traveling this is great because the bag can hold everything you need, but for school it is so deep that things are often hard to find.

Overall its a great bag. It could use a little more organization in the main compartment.

Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

Bought this after using a medium messenger to travel with a larger laptop. THe messenger worked great but with a full bag, clothing for a weekend trip, the laptop was pressing against my back at an awkward angle.

I thought a backpack might be better for weekending-type travel and the Spire pack did not disappoint. I could easily get by for a week with clever packing.

It has the same timbuk2 quality and design flair you'd expect and it has worked great so far. It has more storage space (according to specs) than most other timbuk2 backpacks, but does not seem/feel too large.

protected sleeves for laptop and tablet with a quick zipper access is great, but i found i can fit my 8" tablet in the front zipper pocket for even easier access.

Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

My fourth Timbuk2 and my current EDC. Easily fits my 10" Samsung tablet and my non-Apple work laptop. Outer fabric not as rugged as my Swig. The velcro strips that help close down the lid rub/scuff the fabric trim. Wish there was a key laynard.

Love the color combination and the overall build quality.

Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

Bought this for my wife for grad school. She says it's too tall for her 5'2" frame. I told her before it arrived that if she didn't like it, I'd happily take it off her hands, so it's mine now. It's a good size for supplementing the saddle bag on the commuting bike.

    Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

    I needed a new back pack that served more purpose than to just hold my laptop. I searched for a macbook pro back pack and this brand popped up. First time hearing about Timbuk2, so I decided to look more into the brand and its products. I was blown away buy the amount of features compared to my back pack. Not only was the Timbuk2 cheaper, but it had almost 3 times more features (Waterproof, extra pockets, holders on the side for a water bottle, and lord have mercy...a mother lovin bottle opener.) There are only a few things that I have purchased in life that I really appreciate and share with all my friends. This back pack is one of them. Keep up the great work guys!

      Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

      I use this for school, and it is able to carry my three huge textbooks, a one-inch three ring binder, two more pads of paper, a tablet, a laptop, a 3DS, a lunch and still have room for double that amount of stuff. With the incredibly comfortable straps, it feels like no weight at all and keeps all of my stuff dry with light precipitation. The one con is that the black and red doesn't go with much of my clothes, and there is only the two color schemes. All in all, this is much more backpack than I bargained for and absolutely worth every penny.

        Great way to commute in NYC with your laptop and other things. So easy to pull out your laptop and other key items without opening the larger compartment. Essentially the only time you need to open the larger compartment is for bigger items (e.g. books, sweater, etc. The pockets on the exterior are very handy for small items. It's very stylish and comfortable!

        Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

        The zip inside scratches my lholes!!! The pocket which is located in the front pocket has bad stitching.

        The support team is a nightmare! Pray to to get a perfect bag and never talk with them. I have payed 100$ for the bag and + 30$ for shipping and +40$ VAT. It is OK, but I did not get the bag! I have contacted the support team and they did not responded for a week. I was very dissatisfied, but I needed the bag because I was in love with it, so I decided to buy it (again) in a shop. I thought Timbuk online shop will give back my money as I did not get anything for my 170$. Then I got an email form UPS that my bag is on the way again from Timbuk2. I asked them to refund me, because I do not need 2 bags, but they said it is not possible, only if I send back the bag. Unfortunately it would cost 100$.
        I am stucked here with 2 Timbuk2 Spire backpaks which cost me 300$. As a student 300$ is a fortune for me.
        I was a big fan of Timbuk2 because of it's quality made products and lifetime warranty.

        I am very disappointed.

        If there is a solution please contact me!
