        Fits two computers in the designated sleeve, can hold my lunch in a soft cooler, and all the notebooks/papers I need for the day. I work remotely most of the time so having a roomy, light, comfortable pack is important.

            Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack:

            I was looking for a backpack to carry a laptop and some books/papers to work. Backpacks inherently look childish (I'm in my 30s) but messengers/shoulder totes unfortunately start to get too heavy to wear on one shoulder. So I was looking for something refined and not too masculine (which is the other problem with most backpacks).
            I got the Uptown on sale in the confetti tweed color. The base color is nice, grey and white tweed. The logo and label are hot pink which probabaly wouldn't be my first choice but it's fine.
            Pros: this backpack is very sturdy- no need to worry about your laptop getting banged around or straps rippinng. It also is relatively light for the size and protection it offers. It is also very comfortable even when heavy and not overbearing for a woman's frame (5'6").
            Pro or Con: there are 4 separate compartments to this backpack which offers a lot of organization, almost too much. Since organization is so subjective, the layout may work well for someone else but for me, it could have been laid out a little differently in an ideal world. From back to front:
            1) Laptop space: Nice and well padded but kind of only awkwardly accessible from the side unless you flip the backpack straps forward. Fine for airline security but a little bit of a pain for daily access
            2) Big empty section: large compartment, no real organization but fine for books, change of clothes, lunch, etc. I would merge this compartment and the laptop compartment in some way, still keeping laptop accessible from the outside.
            3) Organizer section: a couple of zippered/velcroed sections but really oddly sized. I love zip pockets at the top of the bag that allow you fast access to smaller items and so they don't fall to the bottom (i.e. phone, headphones, keys, lipbalm, sunglasses) but the two pockets at the top of this section can't really hold anything useful (an iPhone won't fit). Plus they are too small to fit your hand it which is a huge pet peeve of mine when your hand scratches against the zipper to retrieve something; they should just make this one big zip pocket. There is also a weirdly shallow and thin Velcro pocket underneath this that I'm not sure of what its intended purpose is. They could've done better with this area, maybe have one zip mesh pocket up top and a larger fleece lined area for your chargers and electronics.
            4) Organizer pocket- it's ok, again there is no designated phone area so it's just whatever random stuff ends up in there.
            On the front, there is a side zip compartment which I can't for the life of me understand the concept of vertical compartments on a backpack (because I want everything to fall out when I open it?). So I would have preferred a top access pocket or at least a smaller fleece lined one for a phone or sunglasses. Also, the zip is not ideally oriented for right handed people, should be on the other side.

            Overall, durable, well constructed bag. Just wish they would reorganize the inside a bit.

              This is the perfect size for day trips and flights - enough room for a change of clothes and shoes, a book, plus a tablet or laptop, and the small sundries. Had it a month, used almost daily.

              Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack:

              Bought the uptown to replace a perfectly good timbuk2 messenger that never failed me for ten years. Was just time for a change and the messenger just wasn't adapting to my travel needs. Alas, the uptown. Good segmentation of storage, like the dual laptop and tablet sleeves, though I agree with changing the orientation of the slot to the top vs the side. Also wish it had the key-ring clip that I have on my messenger and straps seem to dig into my shoulders every now and then. Otherwise meets my needs in nearly every way.

                The main thing I like about this backpack is that it has the right density of pockets and compartments. The mesh pockets are useful for finding just the right cable. The side-access laptop zipper is key.
