versatile - good for in- and outdoor activities

Comments about the Armory Pack

This one was an impulse buy, and I'm glad I gave in to impulse. It's another one that's good for people with narrow shoulders - I took it snowshoeing, with a down jacket, lunch, water bootle and some other stuff inside, and it never felt overly heavy. I've been carrying it to work with my computer and stacks of papers, and it's heavy, but so compact that the weight doesn't bother as much as I'd expect. It carries much more than I'd expected without being bulky. This bag is very well-designed. There are pen slots in the front, two sleeves inside which are great for holding a computer and a tall folder. I've never been one for bags with lots of pockets and compartments, but the pockets all make sense and are useful in this bag. The attention to detail is impressive. I love that the lid zipper opens toward the back - so smart for security. My only gripe is that that top zipper doesn't always zip smoothly - it catches on the corners a little, and needs two hands. Pretty minor complaint, though.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Perfect pack for travel excursions

Comments about the Armory Pack

Purchased this pack for class and for travel, most notably my recent trip to Singapore. What a perfect pack to get around an amazing city and for my weekly classes. Comfortably fits my Mac Book Air, an iPad, a rain jacket and all the essentials I need to go from A to B and everywhere in between. It's great looking an really comfortable. This is my third Timbuk2 bag and won't be my last.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Sleek medium size backpack!

Comments about the Armory Pack

I searched and searched for the perfect backpack. I had to figure out what I loved about my 3 different bags so I could buy 1 to replace them. (I am downsizing my life) The Armory bag was my final choice. I was looking at every brand and even custom made bags. My needs are vast as I am a guy who carries lots of personal things (headphones, laptop, phone, chargers, book, journals, pens, wallet paperwork, water bottle, snacks, sunglasses and reading glasses), Plus my two kids need to be accommodated when we are together and they come with their own set of items, most important of all snacks, diapers, and wipes. My bag life before the Armory bag basically had me forgetting something, somewhere, almost every day. I had my work bag, my dad bag, and my EDC bag. Something did always make it in the switch. I would forget my wallet in my dad bag but was at work trying to buy coffee. I hope you get the picture. Now my daily life can fit in my Armory bag. There is enough room to cram a whole day of adventure items for 3 people while being sleek (when not full of stuff) and stylish enough to take to work. One of my co-workers already asked if I minded if he purchased one, not at all Daniel just not the same color ok! Timbuk2 hit it out of the park on this sub $120 bag. My only negative about the bag is the green color is more of a grey. That was an initial bummer as I was really hoping for it to be green but the color is still nice. Also, the security zipper could be improved. If the two parts that accept the lock could overlap or if they were a male/female style that would be nice. Other than that, I think most people would be happy with this bag.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I think it's great.

Love this thing. Looks great, feels great. Easy to break in. It does run a little smaller than I had hoped, but then again, it's a laptop backpack too. I would give this a 4.75 star rating.

I think it's great.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Good but could be much better

The bottom part of the bag does not have enough padding to reliably protect electronic equipment, or any fragile objects from drops and falls, and the laptop compartment inside the main compartment would have been better if it was either sewed to the sides instead of the back part of the bag, or have it be able to stretch.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great for EDC

This pack is my 4th Timbuk2,I have 2 messengers that I've had for over 10 years and still use to this day. Before this one I ordered an aviator pack for traveling . That being my first Timbuk2 back pack I wasn't sure what to expect,all I knew was Timbuk2 quality is unmatched. Not to be disappointed it was great. So when the messenger bags kind of didn't work anymore for my daily grind I started searching for a backpack. To be honest all the other Timbuk2 backpacks weren't eye catching for me until this armory pack,so I scoped it out and waited for a good sale to get it. It is a great bag. It's sleek and lightweight, when I first got it I didn't think It was going to work because it looked tiny and I'm a bigger guy ,6 foot 225 you guys got to get bigger models for reference. To my suprise it holds everything I need and then some. The quality is unmatched, the comfort is top notch . The way the straps are makes it feel like you don't even have it on. My only gripe and they are so minor is that it took longer to get delivered than expected, and it has this double laptop /tablet pocket in the main compartment that gets in the way when I'm trying to pack it to capacity. Personally I think one padded pocket is plenty. Great bag great company.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Roomy top loading pack with locking zippers

I love that the top lid has locking zippers, it makes this a viable travel/hostel pack. The main compartment is a big empty bucket that only has padded laptop and tablet slash pockets. The front zip pocket opens wide with folding gussets and allows easy access to admin panel. Zip up side pocket has sharp color contrast making it easy to find things inside. I think it is great for quick access things that are used daily, e.g. headlamp, self packing shopping bag, sunglasses, etc. I really wish it had our classic red key keeper lanyard, if I used this pack I would put my keys in the admin pocket instead I guess. I also wish we added a zip mesh pocket to the inside of the top lid for storage, I feel like it is wasted space. Overall, this is an awesome everyday pack that will haul a surprising amount of stuff. I can see someone using it in the office on weekdays and travel on the weekends. Having locking zippers mean that you can check it if forced to by airline and still keep your laptop locked up.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comfort and Style Altogether

The comfortable straps and mesh back panels makes commuting to work comfortable. I can fit my work items like laptop, pens, headphones, charges, and some paper work. The size is adequate. Not small and not too big. There is various fabric like nylon and coated nylon. The coated fabric usually helps the interior to be water resistant. This pack is one of my favorites!
