    Comments about Swig Laptop Backpack:

    I use this bag everyday. It is my keep all the stuff together commuting to work. It is also my small travel bag. I can cram lots into it and toss it around. I also gave one as a gift to a friend who is hard on this type of thing. I like the compartments and easy access. The side zipper for the back comartment is supper. I would like one (1) additional side pocket. Otherwise its perfect.

      Comments about Swig Laptop Backpack:

      I bought my first timbuk2 backpack and I couldn't be happier. This is my replacement after owning a Da Kine backpack for 8 years (the zipper finally gave in to my monstrous textbooks). I have been using it as my daily commuting backpack. You always have to be prepared for the rain in Oregon and this bag works perfectly!!!

            Comments about Swig Laptop Backpack:

            I love everything from the bottle opener on the strap to the organization inside! I bought this bag when I got sent to a training program and had more to carry around than my purse could hold. So far, it has proven itself to be waterproof. The bottle opener on the strap is awesome, and it's nice having an outer water bottle holder that is deep and has enough structure not to dump my bottle or get caught on things. Another main draw to this bag was the lack of random hanging straps. It's not my first Timbuk2 product, and I love it as much or more than I expected to!

              Fits my laptop just fine, with room for a tablet.
              An excellent over-night bag when I have to travel for work.
              Comfortable.

              I wish it had a strap in the zip-pocket for my keys, like my other Timbuk2 bags.

                Comments about Swig Laptop Backpack:

                Found myself using the side zips constantly, especially on road trips. I was concerned about the straps pinching the back of my neck at first, but loosening them out a few inches makes it perfect. The Swig is also a bit short which fits nicely, as I've had other bags end out on my bottom and create the lower back gap. Made silencers for mine as I didn't know which Timbuk2 ones would fit.
                Love the colour (tropical limestone - gray), the stiffness of the back, the just-right inside volume, the straps, the sturdiness, and the overall look.
                I use it to treck around town and carry my sketching art supplies with me.

                  Comments about Swig Laptop Backpack:

                  I've owned this bag for about a month now and I travel every weekend with it across the country and during the week I commute with it.

                  This is a great bag: The division of the compartments is excellent. This was the perfect size for me; not too bulky but with plenty of storage. It is built super well.

                  It could use some improvement: I wish the straps on the back that secure the exterior pouch could be hidden or removed along with the top loop. These two items make the backpack... look like a backpack. I'd rather have something a little more professional so I don't feel like a school kid going to work.

                  It's a great looking and super functional backpack but it is a BACKPACK. With a few tweaks it might end up fooling the boss that you have a slim messenger bag.
