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.

          Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack 2014:

          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.

              Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack 2014:

              I got this pack about a month ago and have taken it on two trips - both involving air travel. The TSA pouch for the laptop is a revelation. It's so great to just unzip the back and not have to deal with taking out my laptop and putting it in a bin. The pack also has plenty of storage areas and is well-balanced when full. I was able to fit my laptop, a DSLR, three lenses, a sweater, a tablet, a water bottle, and all of my chargers and cables into this bag and still had room for more.

              I have no cons at the moment because I haven't had it long enough. I am interested to see how it will wear in the long-term as the fabric is lightweight and thinner than the fabric of my TimBuk2 messenger bags.

                Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack 2014:

                EDC: Main items I carry are; Lenovo ThinkPad T420 14" laptop inc 9 cell battery, 10" tablet, water bottle, and all the above. The top and side carry handles are great for manoeuvring. The bag is not super rigid after some use so zipping can be a struggle for one hand, some times you need to hold down one side of the bag before you can zip properly. It would be nice to see some key organizer/strap things or even two.

                  Overall a great backpack. Not my first choice in terms of attractiveness but couldn't find a backpack that was better suited for travel, school, etc. the backpack is very light and has just enough compartments. The tsa friendly compartment was one of the main reasons I purchased it.

                      The TSA compliant laptop pouch is super! It saves a lot of time at the airport. Also, I like the additional handle on the side of the backpack which allows it to be carried like a briefcase. This addition makes for quick grab and go. The design is superb in the sense that when you're carrying it on your back and need to pull out your keys, boarding pass, chap stick, whatever, it can be easily accessed by the small front zipped pouch. The way it is designed requires NOT that you take off your backpack to access the pouch.

                      Honestly, I can't think of many cons. Maybe...a better designed pouch to hold a computer cord or mouse. However, the current design is not bad.
