    worst designed backpack ever

    • Written by from MONTGOMERY VILLAGE

    I'm sorry I ordered this, but it's a ways to a store where I could see it. Amazingly inaccessible compartments, and the backpack doesn't actually open up. I'm returning it right away! apparently i can't give it zero stars, but I would if I could.

    More cool than practical

    • Written by from Kent

    I've owned this bag for maybe six months now. I wanted to expose it to the weather of Cleveland ohio which, if you don't know, changes fairly quickly. I use the bag for commuting on my road bike almost everyday rain or shine. the bag is very comfortable even when its loaded with stuff. The slots for the mac book and iPad where a good idea, but you can use them for other things too. the back is a little cramped and dark on the inside, but that shouldn't be an surprise because when its opened it fairly tall. that bag IS NOT WATER PROF, just water resistant only on the front and the sides, not the back or bottom of the bag so be carful. You mac book isn't 100% protected from the elements. Oh and if you're wondering that cool metal thing is on the shoulder strap, it a sun/eye glass holder, bottle opener, and and be used to hang your keys with a carabiniere.

    Best urban backpack ever!!!

    First of all, it's very water resistant, so you won't have to worry about your devices if it starts raining or even if someone spills a drink on your bag.

    Second, it has great support for your back.

    Third, I'm amazed at how much you can fit in this bag without it looking even the slightest bit bulky!

    Fourth, it's super stylish.

    Fifth, it's made of durable, quality materials.

    Five stars!

    My new favorite bag!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Every time I use this bag I find more reasons why I love it. I was just looking for a well priced everyday bag and I still can't believe this bag wasn't a lot more expensive for what you get. This is my 4th Timbuk2 bag and they continue to impress.

    Here are some of the features that i've discovered in just the first week of use.
    -much roomier then it seems. easy to keep packing more in and utilize the roll top
    -new roll top clip closure design is faster then a zipper and silent for those times you want to slip out toward the end of a meeting but don't want a loud zipper making you the center of attention as you pack up.
    - easy access to the laptop/tablet compartment and storage pockets on the outside of the bag
    - I didn't even know it was water proof! got caught in the rain with a laptop and iPad. Saved them both from ruin.
    - lots of loops and straps to attach things on the out side. Have not used that yet but makes me confident i'll always have room to cary more.
    - and of course it just looks really cool!

    bottom line. If you have a lot of tech gear that you want to safely, conveniently and stylishly cart around you can't go wrong wit this bag.

    This bag is a true beauty

    • Written by from Beverly

    The first day I used this pack, there was this crazy icy slushy snowy rainy storm, and the Inspire stood up to the elements like a champ. This is exactly why I wanted it - something I could bring on my commute (which includes some good time spent outdoors in the New England weather) and not worry about leakage in on my precious MacBook Pro or iPad. Those aren't exactly things you want to throw to chance with a $30 bag from someplace else.
    There a lots of good pockets and a ridiculous amount of space inside the bag, like you'll be looking for more things to carry with you. Cargo seems to disappear inside, in both the way the bag holds everything and the fact that it's (minor drawback) kind of dark inside. If you want to carry your gadgetry outdoors in the world, then this is it.
