What's this all about?

Handsome and rugged, the Telegraph Backpack was inspired by 1980's San Francisco. But its nostalgic styling is paired with modern features to make it a highly functional, totally comfortable pack for everyday carry. Leather zipper pulls, chunky zippers, throwback color blocking, and a retro Timbuk2 woven label places it squarely in the 80's, while its 15" MacBook Pro pocket, comfortable, adjustable shoulder straps, and u-lock pocket make it modern. Its a heritage piece for the modern world.

Comments about Telegraph Laptop Backpack:

This backpack is to carry my laptop, cables, thumb drive, etc. when going to a meeting or cafe to work. I like the simple lines and nice bright ribbon that is easy to attach things to. I also like the drink holder with bungee to hold it steady. It's also lightweight and sturdy. Two ways that it could be improved: a zipper pocket for small stuff, and padding on the side of the laptop that is away from the carrier's body. Not sure why that is an unpadded cloth.

    Comments about Telegraph Laptop Backpack:

    Wanted to use this to store all my iPad/MacBook Pro adapters & cables. It looks a lot bigger in pics and videos on the website. It was a small, perfect for a iPhone or iPod. Since I always keep my phone on my person (pocket), I'll probably just end up stashing my iPod classic in there. Very nice product, just wish it were bigger.

      Comments about Telegraph Laptop Backpack:

      I have always looked for some alternative to carrying my cell phone in my pocket, but most of the holsters that i've tried have felt bulky and have been uncomfortable to wear. I wear business suits every day for work and this works very nicely for that purpose. Then when i ride my bike, it goes on the strap of my messenger bag. There's a second pocket for some cash and a credit card, so it's very convenient.

          Comments about Telegraph Laptop Backpack:

          I bought this as an "impulse buy". It looked cool and I have to admit, I like the idea. I didn't know what to expect though. I guess I thought it would be bigger but my phone fits perfectly and this bag makes it easy to access when out and about.
