"This bag is excellent, large enough to carry everything I need (Work AND Personal gear) without being too big to weigh me down. It is very comfortable, both when just tossing it on my shoulder after getting out of the car, or strapped to my back over my neck and cinched to my body while riding my bike. Going between these 2 configurations is a breeze due to Timbuk2's patented mechanism for elongating the strap but still connecting it back to it's previously set (shorter) length to have it right up against your back. I liked this particular model because it's PVC coated on the OUTSIDE, though I have yet to try it in any damp conditions (I'm anxious to see how it holds up in the rain ;) ). It's a great gear bag for all of my computer/work/electronics needs."
"This is a great bag for travel, I always stuff it full and it can take the heat. I also use it to cart my law books back and forth to school...could be a little bigger on days when I have four classes, but I am happy with it overall. Very comfortable for a messenger bag."
