      This bag is great. Have used if for trips to NYC, SFO, LAX, AUS, AUH, DXB, DOH, and even a few Kingdom of Saudi trips...holds all I need for a carryon - perfect for the mac. Would be better if it had a second elastic quick pocket on both sides, but can't be too picky right?

      What a great bag this is! Before buying the bag I done some reserach into the reviews and couldn't find much apart from a great youtube video where the whole bag was reviewed and its uses shown perfectly before buying i suggest you check it out. Overall I think the bag is great and would recommend it.

      Really impressed by the delivery time as I live in the Ireland and UPS had the bag at my door 3 days after i had ordered it.

      Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

      After using a large classic messenger bag for two years as an undergrad I was ready for a change. My neck, shoulders, and back were killing me on days that required heavy packing. I thought about switching to a backpack for better support and whatnot. After A LOT of research I decided on the spire over other packs like the uptown and rogue. It is stylish, practical, and the new gold rush color scheme won me over. I have gotten comments on it and stares all the time. I am 6'2" with broad shoulders, therefore my biggest gripe is with the straps. They do pinch at times, especially when carrying a large load. using the sternum strap lessens the effect a little, but be aware that pinching is there. And another con would have to be the organizer in the main compartment. it mostly just gets in the way when trying to load/unload the main compartment. A large velcro flap would have been great to cover the organizer when not in use. Besides those two minor problems the bag is great. I would pack the same amount into my messenger and the level of comfort in the spire is un beatable. The ripstop polyester looks good and is light weight, lets see how it will hold up over time. I am using the bag mainly for daily commuting and for school, but i can imagine it will do wonders on short trips and weekend getaways. Another home run for timbuk2

      Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

      Great bag as always from Timbuk2. Moved to a this backpack from a messenger bag. Transition is going well thus far.
      For those that can't decide what black version of the bag to get; the photos don't show the products in their true color.

      Long storey short, i ended up buying both black versions. I liked the red and black version, as the front of the bag looked to have a sheen to it, and the all black bag looked more of a flat black or grey front.

      Both bags arrived, and the black on the front of both bags looks identical in person. I will be returning the red and black version as i prefer not to have the red on my bag.

      Hope this makes shopping easier for the next guy.
      Thank you Timbuk2 for making a great product.

      Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

      I heart this bag. I needed a backpack bag that I can take on quick business trips, and commute with in weather. My only nit with it: the exterior "TSA Friendly" laptop zipper is a bit hard to get to under the straps. It takes a bit of finagling at the security line to get it in and out.

      Comments about Spire 15-Inch MacBook Laptop Backpack:

      I love this bag. I was hesitant to get a bag pack but it feels so light when I wear it and it is spacious so you can pack a lot. I am still finding pockets and gadgets on the bag. I told a co-worker about it and she bought a bag from Timbuk2.

      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.

      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.
