- Its a great size - very stuffable, yet compact enough that you can use almost empty. Great quality from timbuk2
- Build, design and material is great. Its a pleasure to use - the buckle is solid and doesn't feel like its flimsy nor will break any time soon.
- rolltop is great to use
- Roomy front pocket for easy stuffing
- The laptop sleeve is great, I use it as a divider since there's a external side zip
Overall its a great bag, and I love using it as my EDC. Some things lacking:
- Could use some more pockets, the small stash zip is so small its laughable. Front external pocket is awesome, but thats it. An internal pocket would be great.
- Elastic on the side bottle holders to hold bottles in place, they slip right out when turned.
Flaw 1 - The side bottle pockets don't work well when you have things filled up in the bag. It is difficult to place your water bottles in. Too tall & non-stretch. This could have been better if it was a net side with stretchable liner.
Flaw 2 - The first time I use the top clip, it bent too much, as the clip is too flimsy, too weak, not typical Timbuk2 clips. I doubt it will last long. This could have been better if it had a Shire like metal clip or a standard Timbuk2 clip.
And finally 2 things I don't like.
First, the top strap to the clip doesn't move well and so I had to use two hands to make it tighter or loosen it. This could have been better if it had thicker with less slippery strap, formerly typical Timbuk2 straps.
Second, the rear strap connectors are black polyester like material and I didn't feel that it would last long. This could have been better if it was the same canvas material, formerly typical Timbuk2 design.
It is hard for me to see where it was made even looking at the bag as I didn't want to ruin it, as the tag was in the middle and very difficult to see. This could have been a great bag, but ruined by the need to cut pennies off on manufacturing.
If I would have any other backpack, I would not even dare step outside, as there was a 110% chance that my laptop, other electronics and books would be ruined but thankfully, this backpack is water proof--I stuck my phone and wallet inside of the bag and went on my way. About 20 minutes later when I arrived to class, my hair looked like I had just showered, my clothes were dripping wet and I was sloshing water in my shoes, but the inside of my backpack was bone dry, everything inside safe and sound. The waterproofing on this bag is so good that you will actually accumulate water on the side pockets, which I think is a benefit as my water bottle was empty and I didn't have to make the trip to the water fountain (only partly kidding).
There's a few reasons why I specifically picked this backpack:
1) Side pockets are made of the same material as the rest of the bag, rather than cheap expandable nylon ones. Yes, this limits the amount of water bottles I can stick in them, but if you find a water bottle that fits, you can rest assured that the pocket will never rip, and if you ever need to run with a water bottle in the pockets, you don't have to worry about it flying off because it is held weakly in place.
2) Separate laptop pocket with padding. The laptop pocket is padded on the back of the bag (the part that goes on your back) and lightly padded on the inside part, facing towards the rest of the bag. A lot of backpacks with laptop pockets do not provide padding and you must get sleeve, or else risk cracking something if your backpack is ever roughed up. An additional bonus that this backpack has is that, because the top pocket unrolls, to have easy access to the laptop pocket, there is a size zipper that allows you to pull it out quickly. This in addition to the padding made me ditch my dedicated sleeve, and I still sleep just as calmly at night knowing my laptop with all its precious data won't get destroyed if I drop it (from a reasonable distance).
3) Looks great and well built: Going back to what I said about waterproofing and side pockets, the entire backpack is built of very tough, waterproof nylon. Certain colors are only available in polyester, so make note of this before your purchase it. The polyester straps and handles, although also well built, do not appear as durable as the rest of the nylon which is clearly much toucher, however I don't see them giving away or ripping any time soon.
4) Decent amount of organization: I am somewhere in between neat freak and "I don't care just put it anywhere," and the organization in this backpack is perfect for me. A couple of pockets for important stuff, one large pocket for stuff separate from the main compartment, and an ample main compartment for books and other stuff. There is enough organization in the backpack where I will use all of it, but it is not overwhelming, having a place for everything.
Things I don't like:
1) just one--the plastic buckle. For now I've had no problem, but I am worried that it may give up at some point with constant use. I wish Timbuk2 sold metal buckles and that I could switch this out, although I might look into metal buckles to replace the plastic one if it ever breaks, but for now everything is good.
Who this backpack is perfect for: College students with laptops who carry 1-2 textbooks or a couple of thinner normal books, want something waterproof and durable, a water bottle pocket, don't need ridiculous amounts of organization, and want something that looks nice.

The only criticism I have is this––could use another inside pocket.
