True to the Professional series, there are a number of innovative interior features:
Fully padded and lockable laptop compartment - completely isolated from the contents of the pack. Easy access via an “L”-zip opening. Fits laptops as large as 1.5” thick x 11.5" wide x 14.75" tall (15.75" tall with the secondary pad removed). For ultra-thin laptops, we've added a diagonal pocket across the back.
Crush-proof AC-Adapter garage that isolates heavy (or fragile) accessories from the rest of the pack. Positioned at the bottom for better load balancing. Removable for those times when you need extra storage capacity
Top-load tablet pocket is fleece-lined for automatic glass cleaning, measures 8-1/8” wide x 11.5” tall, lays flat between the main and laptop compartment, and is lockable
Easy access middle compartment via an “L”-zip opening. A 3” deep shelf across the bottom provides a rigid flat surface for 11" tall binders/folders/books without the classic “diaper butt” posture of most backpacks. Because of the tapered shape of the pack, the compartment does become narrower at the top. When you need to pack a lot of volume, remove the AC Adapter garage, fold down the shelf, and take full advantage of the 11.5” width & 15.5” max height
Diagonal slash pocket inside the middle compartment to help organize loose papers and folders.
A front panel organizer that keeps you organized. We’ve eliminated any chance of stuff piling up at the bottom of the compartment by creating a 2-dimensional workspace free of clutter.The front organizer panel includes:
Three zippered “See What’s Where” mesh pockets
Four business card pockets
Two elastic pen loops plus one hidden pen pocket off to the side
One elastic-trimmed pouch pocket
... and we always include a key leash
Zippered side-mounted water bottle pocket
Vertical zippered “Napoleon” pocket on the face - perfect for boarding passes. It features a special YKK locking apparel zipper to ensure it will not “walk open”
Low profile top and side grab handles for easy portability
Airmesh back panel is fully vented and well padded in all the right places
Contoured backpack straps generously padded with Airmesh
Adjustable/removable shock-loaded sternum strap
Luggage handle pass-through panel on the back allows you to stack the TLS Slim Junior on your favorite suitcase both vertically and horizontally
Backpack straps that unclip for storage inside the pass-through panel for a cleaner dangle-free appearance when carried as a briefcase

Discrete photo-reflective zipper cords for nighttime safety
High-visibility 210D orange nylon lining makes finding your stuff a lot easier
840 x 900D Twisted Filament Polyester exterior with Teflon fabric protection
Detailed Product Description
The TLS Professional Slim Junior follows on the enormous success of the original Professional Slim. We have a different point of view when it comes to a laptop backpack. Gone are the bungee cords, exterior mesh pockets, carabineer clips, and all of the other bling that has no place in a professional setting. The Slim Junior includes all of the same incredible features, but in a smaller size. We've kept an all-black dress code that doesn't look out of place in an office setting despite being a backpack. The Heathered Graphite and Brushed Indigo make a subtle statement. You still get to enjoy all of the original features – just scaled down a bit. Plus we've added an additional pocket in the laptop compartment for those of you with the ultra-thin laptops.
Almost two years of relentless tweaking went in to creating the original Professional Slim. Customers asked for a smaller version… and we like to think that we’re pretty good listeners. We kept all of the unique features that we know you love – like the AC Adapter Garage that preserves storage space regardless of what’s packed above (thanks to our super-cool compression molded box and fold-down mezzanine in the book compartment) plus effortless access to your laptop & documents via wide L-zip openings. We’re really proud of this addition to the Professional family and hope you agree. Enjoy! Bernard Majeau, Director, Product Development
"Got the Jr version, being a 5ft tall female - love it. Perfect for EDC, can cram all my things into it without breaking my back and it doesn't stick out 3 feet like the typical school backpack. For those concerned about the pockets being on the outside: everything is lockable. I use the hidden tablet pocket for my Kindle e-reader, phone and keys for easy reach on the go, and lock up the other pockets while commuting on the subway. Good and water resistant, and the exterior fabric is not a cat hair magnet like my Tom Bihn backpack. My co-workers went bonkers when they saw mine and I ended up ordering 3 more for folks in my agency for field work. I buy a LOT of backpacks - this one has been my favorite so far, and one of the most reasonable for the quality of product. "
"Incredible. I wasn't sure how much this could really fit while still maintaining a slim profile, and I am blown away by how much I fit into this thing. 2 laptops (work + personal), 2 laptop chargers, phone charger, external battery, wireless + wired headphones, hard-shell glasses case, and iPad mini. With room to spare! And it still maintains the low-profile that I desperately wanted in a backpack.
Product pictures weren't great in deciding which model to get since it showed a tall man and short woman wearing the regular vs. junior bags. I am pleased with how this junior bag looks and fits, and I am a 5'10 male."

"Let me start by saying, I'm one of those "just in case" packers. I have a little something to manage almost every type of problem in my bag. I purchased this bag as a way to keep me organized during my daily commute and on short business trips. I fell in love with the organizing interior pockets and I found the AC adapter garage intriguing. In addition to having a dedicated laptop pouch, it also has a zippered tablet holder (that is large enough to hold my 11.4 x 7.8 laptop securely).
What I knew I probably wouldn't like was the L zip opening. It keeps the bag slim, and limits what you can stuff into it. I find that a little annoying. Additionally, this is not the bag for you if you find yourself collecting things to bring home. You will not have the extra space to bring anything you didn't come with. The weekender version of this bag is likely what I needed, but it's size would've looked ridiculous on my 4'9" frame.
I have found the bag to be very durable. It slides effortlessly on and off my luggage handles when traveling and I get tons of compliments on it. It does its job for me as an organizer. It keeps papers neat and I can find what I'm looking for very quickly. "
