Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

Nearly everything about this bag is a win - win for me except for two things that I nearly returned the bag for.
1) The bag cannot stand up by itself. Its quite irritating to HAVE TO lean the bag against something always and watch it slowly slide down and fall flat. The back of the bag has a full pad that extends beyond the bag itself and so will always tilt the bag.

2) The outside pocket does indeed have a lot of small compartments, but the pocket compartment as a whole is just too small to make those small compartments or zippers useful.
Maybe i have big hands but when I put something in there, it just snags on the mesh or i have to force it down past the folds to go in and then the compartment feels tight and full.

Despite these two items, everything else I love about this bag. I ultimately kept the bag as I really do like the style despite it all.

    Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

    I should have listened to my friends who told me these bags suffered quality issues. A zipper popped on me today and the bag isn't even a year in the field. Examining the zipper, I felt like the absolute cheapest zipper was chosen.

    Not interested in a warranty replacement so I can go through the same thing again in 10 months. Going to look for another brand and spend the extra money this time.

    Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

    I have the new Alienware 17 laptop and I was looking for a backpack that can store my laptop and the essential stuff I need every day nicely. The website said it could fit my laptop. When I actually put my laptop in, it certainly could by TAKING UP 80% OF THE SPACE. I could barely fit anymore things into the bag. And the paddling is just hard and harsh on back. No comfortable experience at all. It is really not as good as my TIMBUK2 command backpack.

    Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

    I use this backpack almost everyday at college and if I just want to bring some stuff to a friend's house. The laptop pouch fits my computer almost exactly, and it has pockets that I can keep the charger and the mouse in. Pus the Carabiner loops allow it to carry even more stuff should you be so inclined. (I would but I don't have the carabiners).

    All in all it's a little pricey but it's practical, useful and looks awesome!

      Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

      Bought this for my husband for Xmas and he absolutely loved it. It's stylish and is big enough to fit his mallets and drum sticks.. The bag has a lot of pockets and he likes how comfortable the straps are. Hoping that it will endure his wear and tears, but so far, so good.

      Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

      I pulled the trigger and bought the Spire after what seemed like a year of research. I made this purchase based on many online reviews, and reading all the great reviews on this product. It works really well as an everyday carry, and commuter bag. Only drawback I have found on this bag is the lack of organizational options with it's pockets, this was also the gripe with many reviews. I found an interim solution by buying small zippered bags, which allows me to better organize my essentials (phone, wallet, bike tools, and first aid). Would I buy this again? Yes.
