If you don't use it as a backpack, the overhanging end of the shoulder strap does look funny, but it doesn't bother me at all.
Another thing I wanted to point out is the zipper on the computer compartment. I have the same kind of zipper on my backpack that I use when I mountain bike. It has been through rain and mud and has not let any water in. I feel much better about it than a regular zipper that most of the other cases have.
In short, I'm glad I bought this bag after looking at Timbuk2, Crumpler, Chrome, and other brands. And yes, I would buy it again.
I'm happy to say that I finally found a bag that not only fits the bill, but is very comfortable to carry. My old attache-style laptop bag was not only too small for my purposes (meaning I had to carry extra stuff with me), but also could only be carried on one shoulder. The BBP design gives me the option of carrying it messenger-style, but really shines when converted to the low-slung "Bum Back Pack". The straps are easily adjustable, too, so I can leave them long for increased ease of slinging it on and off my shoulders, but once it's on, I can cinch it tighter for those last-minute rushes to catch a train. I personally don't have any issues with the bag banging against my back when walking, and I seldom use the chest- or waist-straps. (If you have the bag slung too low on your body, I could see this becoming an issue.)
As for space and pockets, it's very roomy, with quite a few pockets for organizing your gear. If I had to pick one thing to improve, I'd ask for just a few more pockets. While the current arrangement is adequate for all of my stuff (and I have quite a lot of stuff crammed in there), a couple more pockets/pouches in the second-to-largest compartment would be welcome for organizing my things.Read more ›
For travel, the outer laptop compartment makes me cry tears of joy every time I'm at the security checkpoint. When I'm around the office, the messenger-style strap looks way more presentable than a backpack. And yet, I can walk for miles with this thing all loaded up and not break my back.
Only possible drawback? Hey, it's no stylin' Gucci bag or anything. It's a workhorse that looks like a workhorse.
But whatever. I'm so happy just writing this review I'm gonna go use it right now.
The back pocket is a padded, suspended pocket that does a good job of protecting the laptop and keeping it close to your back for better balance. On the outside of the back pocket are padded bump pads to keep the laptop from banging against you as you walk.
The front storage system has a large center pocket with an internal mesh pocket. In front of that pocket, still protected by the flaps is another large zippered pocket with a bigger compartment and 2 pockets for storing cables, etc.
In front of that is a smaller flat pocket suitable for a small notepad or journal.
On the face of the main part of the bag are pen-holders and a small zippered pocket.
Covering all of this is the exterior flap which locks into place with 2 plastic fasteners. On the face of the flap are 3 pockets of various size for storing MP3 players, cellphones, etc.
At each end of the bag are additional pockets.
The bag is well balanced, when walking it rests against your lower back. This is the best laptop bag I've ever owned, and I've owned quite a few over the years. Because of my work and hobbies, I carry a large number of cables and digital accessories. This is the first bag I've had where I could comfortably carry all my stuff and not feel cluttered.
I use it to carry the following gear when I am travelling: 15" MacBook Pro, iPad, Bose noise-cancelling headphones, external hard drive (at least 1 sometimes 2), airport express, mouse, chargers, universal power adaptor, assorted cables (network, HDMI etc) and it still has room for a soft shell jacket and book.
The secret to this bag is the pockets. There are heaps of them and they are just the right size for everything you could possibly carry.
BBP has done a fantastic job with this bag for sure. I am positive this will last 10 years and still look good and work great.
