    We bought these bags for four office employees who carry laptops and mainly travel with computer from home to work. All four liked the space/compartments, durability, and style of the bag. No complaints from any of the users!

    Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack 2014:

    The zipper is too weak for the laptop/tablet portion of this pack. With both devices in place, the zipper would pop open, fortunately not so much so that the devices would fall out as they would be pressed against the user's back.

        Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack 2014:

        I love the bag. It is well built and roomy and yet compact and slim on the back. The million pockets are great and I love the TSA friendly laptop section. Took it on a multi-day trip recently and missed two things: 1. The side handle would not fit on the handle of my roller. Just an inch on the side grab handle would have made it fit and I could walk with the bag attached to my roller. 2. It would be a nice feature in the future to have waist straps to take some of the weight off the back and shoulders on to the hips when the bag is full for travel. Other than that, I plan to to use this bag for a while.

          Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack 2014:

          What I like most about this backpack is the size & placement of each compartment. I dislike backpacks that give you one outer compartment for all your cables/cords/iPod/phone, etc. This pack includes interior mini pockets & pouches that let you keep your accessories where you need them rather than having to dump them all into the outermost section, which results in a messy look & disorganization. Compartment placement & configuration allows me to distribute weight closer to my body. Just as importantly, it retains its neat rectangular geometry when filled. I purchased the blue/black version with reddish/orange accents. I love this color combo. The blue shows up better than in the pictures & the accent color Is a red-orange, slightly deeper than shown in the picture. This was a pleasant surprise. I also have a TSA messenger pack, but this is my favorite for both work & travel.

            Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack 2014:

            I thought I would try the Uptown because I needed a backpack that would lay flatter than my current backpack so it would fit under seats and in the overhead compartments of the regional jets easily. It does that fine but I noticed some shortcomings that bothered me. First the material used was thin and gave me concerns about longevity. Next I noticed that the internal zipper web pockets we small. The website pictures show them holding a phone but my iPhone 6 only fit about half way. The carry handles are too small and thin. The side pocket is too small to retain my water bottle and finally the bottom doesn't have a protective pad like others I've owned. I had high expectations for it but was disappointed by the above mentioned items.

                    This backpack has essentially replaced all my other bags. It is deceptively large and can hold just about anything. The computer compartment is so handy, it takes two seconds to get your computer out of your backpack. I have a heavy laptop, and this bag really reduces the strain on my back and shoulders from the weight.
