Customer Reviews

The quality is so nice, and feels like it would last a very long time.

It is a very compact size, but it has a special laptop sleeve, as well as multiple other pockets.
Dervla
The Incase Compact Backpack is a winner, esp. for students like myself.

Mid-sized backpack for light commute. Carries 15" laptop, files or iPad and room for a few books, small lunch, etc. The top, rear and side small pockets are oddly placed and contents sit weird. Particularly the top pocket, whose contents just hang in the main pocket, and interfere with getting anything out of it.

The strap panel is sewn onto the backpack, rather than being integral: there is just a narrow seam holding them together and mine starting coming apart after 2 weeks of light daily use. Submitted a warranty claim, but they claim it takes 1-3 weeks to process AFTER they receive the defective unit, which is AFTER they process my request and AFTER I pay to ship it to them. So roughly a month without a bag and I pay shipping for premature product failure? I'll have to buy something to use in the mean time, and it sure won't be InCase.

Bad experience, bad product.

**Update: WARNING: INCASE DOES NOT HONOR WARRANTY ON ITEMS PURCHASED FROM AMAZON**
I have been working to get my defective unit replaced by the manufacturer since it failed so soon after the purchase. After submitting a form on the company's website and sending in proof of purchase and a picture of the failure they have agreed to let me pay to ship them the backpack so they can inspect it.

Despite the proof of purchase of a new InCase product from Amazon they say they have to determine if the backpack "is authentic" and if it is a defect then they will replace it, but they "do not process claims for items purchased through Amazon."

So even if you buy a new InCase product which states a 1 year warranty, if you buy it from Amazon then you'll have to convince the company to honor their own warranty, though neither Amazon nor InCase product bother to note this. So good luck, buyer beware.

I was at first a bit skeptical of this backpack but after reading the other reviews on amazon I decided to buy it. I will never regret it. I'm currently a University student and this backpack has everything I need. It fits three textbooks, a few spirals, an iPad and a MacBook Pro with ease. One of my favorite things about this is how well it sits on my shoulders. I walk around all day with it on my back and at times it feels like it is not even there.

The only complaint I can think of is the nylon adjustable straps. They come loose far to easily, but with a few safety pins I was able to prevent them from sliding down at all.

I got tired of hauling a huge backpack around the office that empty weighed more than my laptop. I needed a small and concise backpack for work (professional work environment) to carry a laptop, some papers, a charger and a few misc items. 90% of the backpacks out there have crazy colors, endless pockets and straps hanging and flying all over the place... i.e. they are made for school/college kids or outdoor activities.

This backpack, on the other-hand, has a clean design. There are only two straps that hang down and they are easily tied up on the shoulder straps. My favorite part of the backpack is the small pouch on the top that holds my optical mouse - no more fishing for my mouse! I also really like the single large pocket where the laptop, papers, pens, etc go. Plus it's tall enough to keep an umbrella hidden away on the inside.

This is a great design to replace a small laptop bag for a work environment, but know what you are getting into. Some other reviews complain about the size - yes, this backpack is too small if you want to carry more than a laptop and one textbook. However, it is perfect for the office.

The only thing that would make this pack better would be to have a small pocket on the side for a water bottle.

I bought this backpack after my zipper came off my old one. I decided to go incase since previous backpack didn't have a laptop compartment and this one was designed for the macbook. So i decided to give this backpack a try even after reading the mixed reviews and thought, "hey, it might not happen to me." Sadly, it did. I had the backpack for a month and the left strap stitching is coming apart. You would think an 70 dollar backpack would last longer than my old 30 dollar jansport backpack. Although it does have a nice laptop compartment cushioned all the way around, the down side is the pocket you put your pens, pencils and eraser in. Stuff tends to get thrown around inside my backpack and doesn't want to stay put.
If you are considering buying this backpack I would tell you to look else where. Think twice, act wise.

I bought this after owning a few different Incase backpacks / slings

I was hoping for something similar to my sling backpack. As a backpack, it fit well while being carried. I'm a bigger person, so the sling pack doesn't fit me well unless warn like a single strap backpack. I thought this bag would be a perfect blend.

Internal storage is lacking. My sling pack has 4 mesh pockets. Good for portable hard drive, traveling access point, and power supply. This pack didn't have enough pockets. It barely had any for carrying more than the laptop and pens. No real pocket to even hold the power supply.

Overall, the quality is good. If you don't have to carry much with it, it's fine. If you have any cables, accessories, etc., you may want to look elsewhere. One of the reviews mentioned 3 textbooks and the laptop. I'm not sure that is possible, and likely not a review for this case.
