I got this bag finally after a long time of thinking about it. I could never bring myself to get it based on how much it cost. But I finally broke down and treated myself to it and I have not been disappointed.

I love the "backpack" type of double shoulder straps. I'm a golfer and have had a similar setup on my golf bag for 10-15 years. It's a very comfortable way to carry weight for a long time period.

I think this bag would be perfect for people that live in a city and walk to work, or to a college student that needs to walk around campus carrying a few books and their laptop.

The bag is laid out very well and the buckles are very easy to use.

Only two things I'd "complain" about the bag:

1) I do not believe it's the end all be all of bags that some online sites will tell you it is. That's just my opinion and perhaps that's because I'm not the target audience for the product. However, I still think it's worth the money if you have a heavy laptop and want a more comfortable way of carrying it.

2) There is no dedicated pouch for the laptop power supply other than the main compartment. This makes it a bit awkward to put the power supply in there when you have a large notebook and some other items, but it will fit. Would have been good had they been able to figure out an external pouch specifically for the supply. But again, this is not a deal breaker for me.

PROS: The Hamptons bag is very roomy and has good quality stitching and finishing. I especially like the external pockets for easy access to smaller devices like PDAs or cell phones. One clever feature is the use of an orange interior. The orange reflects light and makes it easier to find things inside the bag.

CONS: The bag is advertised as being both a backpack & messenger bag. But the shoulder strap is designed in such a way that it makes messenger bag carry very cumbersome and uncomfortable. When shortening the strap as instructed, it leaves slack that's either left dangling or bunched up. It not only looks bad but also gets in the way. What also gets in the way is the big plastic buckle & button strap (used for back pack mode) on the strap that is also left dangling. Also there is no padding in the middle of the strap, so when you carry the bag messenger-bag style, the strap bites into your shoulder. The padding only works when you carry backpack-style. This problem would be solved if BumBakPak had two separate straps instead of one "all-in-one" strap. Speaking of straps, contrary to the company ads, this bag WILL bounce against your bum when wearing it as a backpack...unless you also use the included hip & sternum straps. I also noticed that some of the smaller pockets on the Hamptons bag have thin nylon and are unlined on the inside. Over time these pockets will wear out faster than the rest of the bag. Finally I have a minor beef. BumBakPak went cheap and only put zipper pulls on the zippers on the outside of the bag. The interior zippers have no pulls, it's up to you to make your own with paracord or shoelaces. Come on BumBakPak! These pulls cost less than $0.10 a piece! Cheapos!

The Hamptons Hybrid (L size) is a decent big bag with lots of room and pockets. Carrying your junk in an organized way is a snap. But bottom line with the included strap makes the Back Pack mode good, Messenger Bag mode bad!

Overall I love this bag and would highly recommend it. It's made with an attention to ergonomics that makes it very functional. I wanted something I could ride my mountain bike with and wouldn't fly around and then convert to a messenger so I could get into it without having to take it off and put it back on over and over. This does all that wonderfully. It's also stylish and different looking from your typical bag.

The Good:
The bag is weather resistant. From the covered smaller teeth on the zippers to the rubberized lining on the outside pockets, this bag will keep your things dry in the rain long enough for you to take cover. The orange lining on the main pocket makes it easy to find things in the bottom and a mesh zippered pocket inside the main pocket will keep all your small things from rattling around the larger main pocket. The bag's lower positioning works; it distributes the weight in a way that is much easier on the lower and upper back. Also the way the bag straps fit I find it easier and more comfortable to shrug into and out of this backpack then most. I'm 6'4" and the straps on the Large size bag are long enough for me with plenty left over.

As stated in other reviews this bag is made extremely sturdy from top to bottom. The strap clips are thick, metal, and durable. The buckles are made out of a high grade plastic and contrary to some of the reviews I really can't see someone accidently unbuckling them, nor is it even possible for the entire bag to fall to the floor if one buckle or strap fails. The bag does not bounce all that much without the hip strap unless it is near empty or you are jogging/running.

Love this bag. The strap had broke on my Targus laptop bag, and I was looking for a good messenger bag to use as a daily commuting bag, but had also considered backpacks, and ideally wanted something I could also tote a camera in. That originally led me to the Vanguard Up-Rise II 38. However, while that is a good DSLR bag, it's horribly laid out as a laptop bag for commuting. The BBP Hamptons Hybrid gave me the best of all worlds. It is well made, can be used either as a single strap messenger or a backpack, provides sufficient padding for the laptop, has pockets galore for organizing everything, and there are available inserts for organizing papers / folders and for carrying a DSLR. The top loading laptop compartment makes the laptop easy to get out, and provides a bit of a seal to deter rain (although it's not waterproof for sure). For about the same price as what I paid for the Vanguard, I was able to get the BBP Hamptons Hybrid, the DSLR insert, the paper paddy insert, and a rainfly.
