    Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

    This pack is great for freelancing, when you have a combination of work stuff and life stuff to carry at all times and you're always essentially setting up a remote office on tables in cafes or co-working spaces or guestroom beds. It's big inside and has enough pockets but not too many. It could be a little bigger on the inside but then again I like the flat profile of it on my back. 100% happy.

      I bought this bag ad an alternative to my overly heavy messenger bag that was too heavy for my neck and shoulder. The back pack distributes the weight of the bag nicely, there are a lot of pockets for my stuff, easy access to laptop, excellent bag!

      Don't Use Coated Ripstop Fabric!

        Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

        Having been a customer since 2012, this bag by look design and fuction excited me. No doubt when new, it was beautiful and I enjoyed using...for about a month. Then the problems and failures started to arise. First, one of the zipper straps on the back access fell off, then the coating on the fabric started to bubble. Less than 10 months after purchase the coating has either pealed or fallen off nearly 25% of the coated fabric with the other 75% bubbling in an unsightly manner. This bag ages quickly and not gracefully.

        Additionally, while this bag is NOT water proof, it barely puts up any resistance having had my papers and electronics get soaked a couple times in sudden squals. The leaking and soaking is so bad that I leave the bag home if there is even a hint of rain.

        I wish I could say this is a one time incident but since 2013 I have returned 2 other bags for quality/wear and tear issues. This will be my 3rd and likely my last, the lifetime warranty just isnt enough to justify the inconvenience. Should you choose to buy from Timbuk2, do your homework on the fabric utilized first.

            - Many times I'm frustrated with locking/unlocking mechanism. It's hard to operate without looking at it properly mainly when trying to close it.
            - I love the molle webbing
            - The inside pocket isn't working for me as every time I'm trying to reach something inside the bag my fingers go right in the inside pocket. Not well thought through.

            Overall I was really looking for this bag to be much better experience. No matter how well you do outside protection the inside is troubling you everytime you try to use it.

            Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

            Comfortable to wear, seems light.
            Stitching started fraying within a week, and chest-strap clip broke when first opening, wouldn't seem to need it anyway, but pretty bad that it broke on first day.
            Within 1 month of use, small hole appeared on bottom of bag, presumably a hard item scuffed against gravel or rough surface, so there is a hole there now.
            Wouldn't recommend for anyone who needs a reliable bag for serious travel and wear and tear. More appropriate for a gentle commute or city use.

            Ok so this bag isint what I expected.I went into Timbuktu and I started asking question and I was told that this was waterproof but in reality it isint even water resistant.I was commuting to school in bike and ally my stuff got wet infant their was a small gathering of water in the bottom.The rain wasn't heavy but I guess the water would just fall through the fabric.All my notebooks got wet so I had to replace items and I had my laptop which also got wet but luckily I had a case on it so the case was the one that got wet because had I not I wouldn't have a laptop right now.I am really disappointed and I felt that I should write the review to inform people that it's not a good bag for commuting in small rain,I don't know if my bag is defective or what but really upset that I've had 2 weeks and already their has Been a problem.

              My boyfriend bought me this bag for nursing grad school and I am in love with it. It is extremely stylish and is very sturdy. I have a 2011 13" MacBook Air and the bag protects it very well. I travel light to school, but when I have to take a book to class, It has enough room to accommodate it. I have no complaints about the bag.

              Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

              Overall, I like the bag and was starting to get used to the storage capabilities including the limited pockets. However, after a month or so, I started noticing the back of my shirts becoming 'pilled' just above my waistline. Turns out, the rough fabric Timbuk2 uses on this bag is rough enough to tear up my clothing. Now I have a few hoodies and softer cotton shirts that are ruined because of the bag.

              My workaround for now is to just synch-up the straps so tight that the bag lifts off my back, but it's not exactly practical. I've been working with customer service but they are refusing to cover this under warranty. Anyone else having these issues?
