Reconsider how you carry your laptop & peripherals with the TLS Workstation. A backpack distributes weight more evenly, resulting in less fatigue - once you carry it for a day, you'll wonder why you waited so long. Enjoy! Bernard Majeau - Director, Product Development

"First, this is THE single best backpack I have ever owned. I carry a laptop, iPad, iPhone and all kinds of other electronic gadgets (ext. HDs, etc) back and forth to work and on very frequent overseas trips to Asia and Africa. This is the only bag I've found that I can use both as a daily bag and travel bag. I love the fact that the medium space cube from eBags fits snuggly in the middle compartment. I often pack my change of clothes for long haul air travel in there AND have plenty of space for my Macbook Air and iPad in the laptop compartment. The pockets are abundant and nearly perfect.
I do have a few recommendations to improve the product. 1. Add some sort of reinforcement around the main compartment. When it is not filled to the max, the bag tends to slouch. This would also protect the laptop with some more rigidity. 2. Some of the pockets in main compartment need zippers. The large pocket at the top falls open too often with just the hook and loop. 3. Add secret pocket between the main body of the bag and the back padding. 4. Finally - and this is a must - add something to hold an iPad. Given that laptops are much thinner, a mesh pouch could easily fit attached to the inside wall of the laptop compartment or as a separate zippered compartment between the laptop and top handle. That said, it is still the best bag I've ever seen."
"Most laptop backpacks seem to devote the non-laptop compartments to carry files/books. I like the design of this bag in that there is a large main compartment where you can easily pack clothes. The bag is pretty large, kinda heavy, and very structured (ie, stiff), so it is not very comfortable to wear, which is a major disappointment. I would not recommend it as a daily commuter backpack, but as an airline carry-on bag, I think it is fine. It holds quite a bit, and has never-ending pockets upon pockets for organizing all your smaller items. My favorite feature is the large sleeve in the back where you can put it over the handle of rolling luggage. There is no shifting or movement at all with this bag on top. The bag seems to be well-made and durable."

"This is my third eBags laptop backpack. I loved the previous ones but I was keen to get a bigger one that might allow me to skip a second carry on for overnight flights and I wanted a dedicated pocket for the laptop. The bag is great, more room that I need on a day to day basis, but its design is such that it does not feel bulky when it¿s not full, and I do not look like I am going on an overnight camping trip every day as I head to the office. The material is more rugged than it looked on the website which was a pleasant surprise. I got a black one and I expect it will last many years just like my last one. The orange interior is cool it makes it easier to see things in the bag. The laptop pocket is awesome as far as its padding and the ease of getting the PC in and out (probably the best feature compared to my previous bag). Like he says in the video, there are pockets galore which are nice. It will take some time to decide how to use them all and then to remember what I stored in each. The removable storage compartment (video says it holds fiddly bits - whatever those are) makes use of space that would otherwise go to waste, but it's not designed for heavy stuff (like a charger) as a heavy item within it tends to fold the top into the bag when you open the bag. But hey, it¿s a feature that could be useful and it¿s removable so that is a plus. The charger fits nice in the outside pocket opposite the water bottle pocket. One feature I REALLY like (which my earlier eBags did not have) is the padded back which slips over my roller handle when traveling - no more twisting the shoulder straps to secure my backpack on the roller handle. The only enhancement I would suggest for the bag is to flip the zippers on the interior pockets so that the key lanyard can be zipped into the pocket just above it rather than two above it, but that is a tiny nit. This backpack is well designed, a pleasure to use, and an excellent value. Thank you eBags for another winner."
