    It is comfortable whether you're going to class or riding a bike.

    Fits my 17 inch laptop perfectly in it's own padded compartment which leaves plenty of room for other things.

    The laptop pocket is nicely padded and has a separate zipper access on the side (a nice feature).

    I just got this bag in the mail today so this is just an initial review until its been tried and tested some more. My first impression is that it is a durable backpack. It easily fits my rather large 15x10 inch laptop in a nice padded velvet pocket. In fact I really see no need to put an extra case around your laptop when you have it in this pack. Even with my laptop it still has plenty of room to spare. I can easily fit three days worth of clothes and bathroom supplies in the bag with the laptop (I'm a male by the way haha).

    Pros:
    1. Durable
    2. Great laptop compartment
    3. Light
    4. Fits well on shoulders

    Cons:
    1. Price (a little on the expensive side)
    2. Color (I ordered the blue and black, and the blue is definitely a more navy/dark blue than the one in the picture)
    3. Does not have a sternum strap (I think one would add a lot to the bag)

    Note: I am 5'8" and the bag fits me well. However, I would not recommend it to anyone much shorter than 5'8" because its a relatively tall backpack.

    Overall its a sound replacement to my old backpack. Its a little bit on the expensive side, but I'd recommend the bag.

    quality wise this is a great backpack, and i love the laptop compartment as it is its own separate compartment rather than a pocket. This keeps the laptop flush on your back and more comfy then it moving around inside. also very durable and and great in all weather conditions. very ergonomic too

    i give it 3 stars though because it is too tall... when you ride a road bike and get low on the drop bars, when you tilt your head up my helmet hits the top of the pack. no biggie for short rides and probably won't happen on a mountain bike or hybrid where your stance is less bent over, but after a 55 mile ride my neck hurt from the additional pressure i was putting to keep my head up.

    i now use this for travelling tho and it is great for that... but for biking i now have something else.

    I've been a big fan of Timbuk2 bags. I have the medium Classic, and the large-sized Commute 2.0 messenger bags. They both still serve me well to this day. They're rather large for the amount of stuff I carry to work nowadays, so I was looking for something more compact, and the PROOF Backpack is just perfect for that.

    As with all Timbuk2 bags, this one is well designed from its fit & comfort, to the well laid out compartments, and the overall quality.

    The PROOF Backpack is a slightly tall bag, but not so tall that you look like you're about to climb Mt. Everest with it. I'm 5'10", and it fits me just right. When adjusting the shoulder straps to my liking, it sits high on my back, but I don't really mind that.

    It's a pretty good looking backpack too. I have the black/gunmetal color, and it's not gaudy or obnoxious, nor is it plain and dull. I can comfortably wear it to the office, without worrying that I look like an overgrown elementary school student.

    I love that the PROOF Backpack is very sleek and compact, meaning it doesn't bulge out that much at all. I don't have to worry about bumping into fellow bus/subway commuters behind me while wearing it. That said, don't expect to carry a ton of stuff in this bag.

    I usually carry the following items in this backpack:
    1) 13" MacBook Air in its neoprene sleeve (the laptop compartment can easily store a 17" laptop)
    2) 10" tablet
    3) laptop/phone/tablet chargers
    4) mouse
    5) portable hard drive
    6) Xbox 360 controller
    7) sunglasses w/ case
    8) compact umbrella
    9) water bottle on the side

    It would be great if the PROOF Backpack had a sternum strap for added stability; but who really goes hiking or climbing with a 17" laptop?

    I've been using this backpack for about nine months now, long enough to have a good feeling for the quality of the product. And that quality is high.

    The padded laptop sleeve easily fits my 15" Macbook Pro, and actually manages to contain both my laptop and my girlfriend's 15" Dell simultaneously (albeit weighing a ton, but not a bad option for taking on a plane as your under-seat bag). There are two interior zipper pockets, one made of webbed mesh and the other of solid nylon, both of which I've filled with various small pieces such as RJ-45 connectors and cable adaptors, and ample room in the main compartment for carrying much more.

    The description doesn't state anywhere that the bag is waterproof, and I haven't honestly completely tested whether it is or not, but I've definitely been stuck in some heavy rain while wearing this bag and none of the contents were affected.

    Cool thing, too: the TIMBUK2 logo on the bottom of the bag isn't sewn on the whole way around, which makes for a really convenient carrying spot for a U-lock while cycling.

    I've owned 4 different bags form Timbuk2, both backpack and of the messenger bag variety. The Proof is my favorite. It's well made, not too big or too small. The chest straps give me the stability I need when I have to break out in a run.

    Head over to Tiimbuk2's website to find a video review, but buy it from Amazon. You'll save yourself a good chunk of change.
