Really cool bag, I like it.
Andery
Construction is very sturdy, and appears capable of holding up to quite a bit of abuse.
Andrew Krajnik
It is so comfortable because it has a lower center of gravity.

I love it. The bag is high quality, looks cool, and has all the features I was looking for. It has a total of 13 pockets plus the main compartment and the compartment for your laptop. Just wanted to point that out because someone mentioned that this bag doesn't have enough pockets for him.
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've been searching for a while to find the ideal work bag/briefcase. I live in Tokyo and have a 2.5+ hour round trip commute, including subways, taxis, and 25 minutes of walking. I pack my lunch, and also workout during lunch hour, so I needed a bag that could carry my laptop, a small sandwich lunch bag, and clean workout clothes, in addition to various work-, computer-, and commute-related accessories (ipod, paperback novel, mouse, network cable, pens/pencils, calculator, eyeglass case, etc.).

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.

This bag totally rocks for what I use it for: a 30 minute walk to work with my laptop, a sort-of professional look while I'm around the office, and travel.

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 BumBakPak offers a lot of storage in a compact space. There are 2 major sections, the large front storage system and the single pocket in the back of the bag for your laptop.

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.

First of all, this is a really good bag. I almost never use it as a messenger bag, mostly because it's quite comfortable as the backpack. The zipper for the computer section, as one commenter mentioned, is incredibly well made, and am comfortable slinging my computer in there whether it's snowing, raining, whatever. The computer pocket is VERY well padded too. There is plenty of room on the inside of the bag for books, and there are enough (but not too many) interior pockets and separated space.

I did have one problem with the middle buckle in the "backpack" configuration - the one that connects in the middle of your back. It wasn't holding the bag as high as I wanted when my computer was in the bag, or I had heavy books. If I stepped off a curb, the weight of the bag would cause the strap to slide all the way down. I contacted BBP Bags and they sent me a spare buckle and instructions on how to put it on, which was quite easy. Now the bag grips perfectly, no matter how much stuff I put in it.

The only thing I'm a bit disappointed with are the pockets on the front. The zip pocket in the middle is the largest one, and annoyingly, it doesn't zip closed straight, you have to turn the corner of each side and if you don't zip it closed all the way, it seems to slowly open back up. If you don't notice this and flip open the top, all your stuff comes flying out. The other two pockets (on either size) seem to actually be too small to fit anything useful into. I think the one with the snap is supposed to be for a phone, but my phone is too tall for it. The other one has a sideways zipper that is good for ... chapstick and my subway pass I guess. I'm not really sure what it was supposed to be used for actually.
