    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.

      Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack:

      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.

              I use this backpack for grad school. The separate computer pocket is wonderful and very comfortable. The backpack doesn'the stick out very far, but easily holds gym clothes, lunch, my computer, etc. I love this bag!

              Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack:

              Love the look, and the TSA-friendliness. But, it was SO uncomfortable when I tried it on my back -- the stiff pads of the straps dug into the base of my neck. Not sure how anyone could really wear it. One thing I liked about it was the padding, but it just needs to be lower or set farther apart...or something!? Also, I thought I could live without having 2 water bottle holders (one on each side), and a storage unit for my sunglasses like my existing laptop-backpack does. But alas, I realized that those things are important to me. I hope they'll be included in a redesign...along with some fix for the shoulder pad problem. I love my other Timbuk2 products though!

                Comments about Uptown Laptop TSA-Friendly Backpack:

                This bag is just as advertised with respect to its features. The quality is beyond expectation.

                I've only used it for a week so far but I find it very comfortable. The pockets are useful. My only criticism is that the bottle pocket on the side is not deep enough to securely hold most bottles (hence the missing star) Though, from what I've seen this is common.

                My next flight isn't for a couple weeks yet but I can see this being quite convenient. The TSA compliant flip down pocket is large without being bulky. The straps flip out of the way of the laptop pocket much more easily than I imagined.

                The quality is far beyond what I thought. It feels very durable, something real important to me as I don't travel light and I purchased this only because I had complety worn out my last bag.

                Highly recommended
