Everything has its proper place.

The bag looks more narrow than the typical backpack and that is true. I personally like it. If you are trying to carry three binders in the middle pocket then forget it. Two should fit if you stack them right. The different colored versions actually use different fabrics. The green one uses a faux leather material for the three front pockets, which does not match the material for the rest of the bag. The black version uses nylon materials throughout and is the one I settled on.
I am surprised that in all of the reviews, no one brought up the issue with the laptop padding. The front and back of that compartment are more than sufficiently padded, but the sides are not. So if something hard hits your bag from the side, there is nothing between that and the computer but the fabric of the bag. Now, that has never happened to me in twenty years of owning these laptops. But if you worry about your laptop tumbling down the side of a mountain, for example, then this won't be the bag for you, and the STM Impulse has better cushioning.
- Waterproof rubber on the inside of all the front pockets. Makes me feel much more comfortable about putting my valuables or electronics & not needing to worry that rain will ruin them.
- A lot of great functional pockets.
- Good back support, along with a strap that attaches across your chest.
- Love how the computer pocket is designed, and especially the adjoining fleece pocket that is handy for an eReader or tablet.
- Only one con, which is that I wish there was also a strap that could attach at the waist. This would make supporting any weight of the backpack much easier.
Let's start with the list.
It's a very sturdy backpack and two quarters into uni, lugging heavy books plus laptop around most days of the week, there's no sign of tearing or discomfort.
The separate laptop compartment is padded and therefore super convenient because I don't need to buy a laptop sleeve.
It has a zippered pocket on the inside of the front compartment with pen holders.
Cons: (and these are only my personal cons)
The elongated pocket on the front. It's awkward. Since gravity pulls stuff to the bottom of it, whenever I need something, I have to fully open that pocket, risking stuff on the top to spill out.
I have two cats, one of them is a red long haired fluff ball. This bag seems to attract his fluffy locks the moment I walk into the apartment. I have to use sticky roll on my backpack every day I use it.
It is not waterproof, nor water resistant. I'm in a rainy city and the first day it rained, my laptop and books were moist, as was the whole inside of the backpack. I sprayed waterproof spray on it but still no luck. So I have to carry a waterproof backpack cover with me at all times.
So the four stars is because it's a nice backpack and does its intended purpose well. But for my personal needs and preferences, it's just not working out and I'm gonna have to move on.
I love timbuk2 bags - I have several messenger bags.
If you like a lot of compartments like me - you'll love this one.
And the chest strap can be used to hook this bag to the trolley handle so you can handle yourself in ease.
And it also has ventilated back, so the heat will hit you - but not too much.
My only request are a few more pockets and zippers I can loop a lock through -- handy when traveling through a high pick-pocketing train station.
Overall, the colors great and the bag light. Thanks Timbuk2 :)
