Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

I love timbuk2 products, durable, stylish, practical and comfortable. I enjoy being organized and the many pockets helps with this. It can be difficult to get stuff in and out of the main compartment as the top loading feature makes this difficult. Pens usually fall out of the pen pockets and materials will get stuck on the pens when I am loading stuff in. It'd be nice to see a backpack with top and side loading options.

    Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

    I use the bag for university work. It is very comfortable when riding but can get tiring if walking a lot with the bag. I can just easily take this bag to get groceries as take it to school with my laptop and everything else I need.

    I very much like the minimalist design of the bag and only having a few big pockets. In other bags it seemed like I was constantly zipping and unzipping pockets in search for things. This bag makes it easy. Also, the water bottle holder is perfect for my taller water bottle.

    The only thing I don't like about this bag is it does not conform as much to my back while riding and it is not deep enough. The lack of conforming is by design, I suppose, to help the bag retain its shape after years of use. I have had to cut down on the amount of bulky items I carry with me because the bag is simply not deep enough. If I have more than 2 binders and a laptop, I'm not able to put anything else in the bag.

    Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

    This bag has plenty of space and is functional. I'm an average sized female and I feel like it's pretty large on my back. I really like the style of the bag and all the pockets. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it was larger than I expected.

    Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

    I bought this pack to replace a custom Prospect backpack which was just a little too small for me. I use this on my daily Metro commute and for traveling. I love the pockets inside and that they are readily available from the back zipper. It's also big enough for two lunches and a jacket! Only two minor complaints: I lean my backpack against a wall at home, and it seems to be picking up paint residue, which my old pack never did. It's very difficult to clean off the material. We haven't repainted since I had the Prospect (which lived in the same place) so either the material is wearing out my wall or the other way around. :P I'm just going to find a new place to put it. My other complaint is if you have pens in the internal pen pockets, they interfere with getting things in and out through the back zipper. I have stopped using the pen slips and just put them in one of the internal zip pockets because of this. All in all I'm very happy with the new bag, and I doubt I will outgrow it.

      Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

      I bought the Spire for daily work use and business travel. I have a Rogue backpack for personal use and I love it. I decided to get the Spire because it is similar, but has a bigger outer pocket for my passport & document wallet. I love everything about this bag and will say that it is good for a single PC lifestyle. I traveled overseas with 2 laptops and a tablet, along with accessories and all was still good -- just heavy. I wish it was a deep/thick as the Rogue, given its bigger size overall (it is actually thinner). The outside pocket and the top pocket with the side zipper were just right. All in all, I love it.

        Overall this bag is stylish and very nice. This bag is NSA friendly which is very convenient for frequent travelers. I really like the leather looking materials in the bag (I am not 100% sure it is actual leather). The padding is also great.

        I like it a lot, but the strap to lock the laptop is too short for a MackBook Pro 15'' Retina. Anyway the laptop is still protected, but I would prefer to be able to lock it.
