Perfect workplace companion

Comments about the Armory Pack

A great all around backpack with plenty of pockets to keep everything organized for work.

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!

It could be better

I've gone through two Timbuk2 messenger bags, and have a third one that I only use when I need a small bag to carry a small laptop. So, I'm a fan of the Timbuk2 quality and feature set. This time, I decided to get a backpack. I bought this from the shop while I was in the US for a conference, and the Timbuk2 shop was near the conference center. With my conference badge, I got a discount. There were a few things that I was concerned about, but they seemed trivial compared to the savings (conference discount, plus no international shipping fees). Here are the problems that have started to bug me a lot: (1) The tether for your keys is way too short. You either have to treat the entire backpack as a keyring fob, or you have to take the keys off to use them. (2) There is no velcro to secure the laptop compartment shut. It's just a pocket. I thought I'd be able to attach a velcro strap myself, but it really isn't working out. (3) The size is just the right size to ride my belt, so it pushes my pants down. Your mileage will vary with this one, since it depends on your frame. (4) To access pens, I have to unzip the smaller compartment more than warranted just to get a pen. I wish it were easier to access that area. Here's what I like: (1) The size. It's roomy, without being too large. (2) It's comfortable. Nice straps, and it's not too hot on my back. (3) It looks nice. I think I will end up buying another one way before this one wears out. I'll give or sell this one to someone who doesn't need to carry their laptop everywhere, and I'll look at the other Timbuk2 backpacks to find one with a more secure laptop pocket.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Great all-around bag with good access to compartments

I purchased this with several intentions in mind, for a travelling bag, for taking my laptop and textbooks to school, and at the same time bringing a pair of climbing or running shoes along. This is my 3rd TimBuk2 pack and so far I love it just as much as my others, everything this company makes is both high quality and thought out. I do have the additional insight as a backpack fitter in the outdoor industry so I would like to make some key comments on improving the design of the backpack. Don't let these deter you, I am super happy with the backpack and it works great Thoughts on design -The bottle opener is located at the ideal placement (atleast for me) for the sternum strap. Thankfully they designed it to be removable, which allowed me to move the strap below the bottle opener and this works pretty well, except the sternum strap tends then to slide low on the chest straps -Personally I am not a huge fan of sewn-in elastic bands for carrying water bottles, as that elastic is going to have a shorter lifespan than the rest of the bag, and you can't tension the strap. My last bag (sorry I forget the model) used a piece of elastic cordage with a sliding sinch, which made it useful even after the elastic wore out -The compression straps are kinda useless in most instances, they need to be a inch or two longer and not sewn so far away from the front panel. I would also recommend adding a buckle to the compression straps, so you can run them through a pair of sandals for example -Add more sewn-in organization inside the front panel for notepads and pens and the such. What is there is fine but could be a bit more substantial and have more pockets I know that seemed like a lot of complaints but I really do quite like this bag. I used it for a full day riding around San Francisco on a trip to the city, and since then have used it for a month as my commuter college backpack. Great all around bag I expect to use for years to come

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
