I just got this bag in and I could not be more pleased. I had previously been carrying my stuff in one of those Swiss laptop backpacks which are nice but it was much bigger than what I needed. I have to keep my laptop on me at all times for work so lugging around a big heavy bag was getting to be annoying. The items that I keep in this bag are as follows: laptop, laptop power adapter and cord, Ipad, ipad adapter and cord, ethernet cable, wireless mouse (kind of a big one cause I use a trackball), two thumb drives, pens, pencils, a leatherman, extra stack of business cards, backup apple connector cable and headphones, 1 poly-pocket folder which I keep with my laptop in the pocket to transport any documents that I would need to stay wrinkle/ fold free. I especially like how my ipad fits in the sleeve connected to the front of the laptop pocket. The Ipad in the apple case + a protective padded sleeve are a perfect snug fit. Not much else will fit in this backpack but you have room for a magazine or a small notebook in the main pocket if you need. The bag is super high quality and I think the build quality is great. It's light and small and will easily fit under the seat on an airplane so no cramming your stuff into the overhead compartment where you cant get to it. I also like how my stuff stands out against the read and white interior of the bag so its easy to find. This is my first Booq product and the bag is small and would not have worked for me while in school (dont think I could get one text book in there) but it fits my needs perfectly and based on the quality of this bag I wouldn't hesitate to buy more Booq products if I had a need.

This is a great bag for trips to and from the office. I have to admit, at first glance I thought it was way too small. Even after filling it with my 15" MacBook Pro, power cable, phone charger, earbuds, random pens and office supplies, two notebooks, a couple of folders, a baseball cap and a 1,000-page hardback, I was skeptical. But after a couple of days, its design and efficiency of storage really grew on me. It's replaced a Timbuk2 laptop messenger bag that I would routinely fill with extra gear (because I could) and then suffer with during the mile-long hike from parking lot to office. Now I only take what I need, when I need it - and with much more comfort.

I love the wide-mouth main zipper compartment; it ingeniously opens and gives access to all your gear. Multiple compartments inside keep everything organized and secure. Side zips are perfect for cables and accessories. Mesh pockets in the shoulder straps hold my smartphone (snugly), and similar pockets on the side of the bag are great for small items - though they're too small and tight for water bottles.

The minimalist design and interior color accents are the icing on the cake, and separate this from the pack of wannabe bag brands. The top handle is a nice touch for people like me who use this as their primary office bag. The laptop sleeve fits my MacBook perfectly, is well-padded and secure no matter how much junk I'm carrying.

On the downside, it is a commuter bag only. A chest strap would be nice for those days when you've got a full load. Zippers instead of velcro tabs would be better for the interior pockets, and sleeves for pens and pencils would be a good addition.

If you're a Booq fan and need something for weekend trips or overnighters (or a commuter/camera bag), check out the much larger Booq Boa Flow XL, Black-Red Backpack.

I bought this bag three months ago and have tried very hard to love it. But unfortunately one aspect of the bag has made it a love/hate proposition... the shape of the bag does not not allow it to stand on it's own. While this is not a fatal flaw, it is REALLY annoying. The only way to put this bag down is to either lean it against something or lay it down flat. Neither method is very convenient. I really underestimated how often I 'plop' my bag down. I use the bag on my daily train commute and struggle to put it on an empty seat next to me without it falling onto another passenger. Putting it on the floor by feet is even more awkward. At work, I have to lean it against my desk.

With that said, it is still a good bag (just not great). The quality is top notch and the material feels more like luggage than a backpack. The storage areas are very good and keep all of my stuff organized. It is comfortable and not too big. It is the perfect size for carrying several items plus a laptop or Ipad.

BOOQ Support = Excellent.
Build Quality = Excellent.
Water resistant = Excellent.

This is really awesome for commuting, it's slim profile allows you to sneak into tighter spots without having to take it off (but, you still should when you can anyway, as all good, civilized and considerate people should.)

Do not drop your bag vertically. Have a padding, a cushion or similar that is below your laptop. I dropped the bag accidentally once and it made a dent on it :/ so add extra padding if you are the kind of guy that may be prone to this.

One of the shoulder straps has a nice pocket, I think it was for a cellphone? (but its pretty tight) -- I keep business cards there instead.
