I'm obsessed!

This backpack is changing my whole commute on bike, walking, or on the train. It fits my huge laptop, all of my books and notes (I'm a professor at a liberal arts college, so this is a must) and is unbelievably comfortable and lightweight. The only downside is I didn't own this sooner. I never thought I would feel this passionately about a backpack, but I've been bragging about it to everyone who will listen.

Great commuter bag!

So far I’ve used it on my train + bike for commute, on my bike for a weekend ride, and to run errands. It’s been great all around. My favorite feature is the hidden pocket that lets me access my bike and keys very easily without removing the bag. I’m not completely sure what to do with all the inner pockets (particularly the larger sleeve in the front pocket but that’s not really an issue. A definite upgrade from my prior bag!

Great commuting backpack

I got this backpack because I needed one that fits my 17" laptop and this backpack does the job great! I'm able to fit my laptop, clothes, shoes, breakfast and lunch with no issues. It's been great so far and pretty comfortable too.

So well thought out

This is my dream commuting bag - easily enough space for my laptop, d-lock, lunch, a change of clothes, and a little more besides. And it looks sleek and chic - not a utilitarian sporty bag. My partner now wants their own too.

Great backpack

I really like everything about the backpack except that there is no drawstring or other way to ensure that nothing falls out (e.g., if on plane and lying flat). Also, the two magnetic pieces in the top flap came loose and fell off after the first use. I ******* them back on pretty tightly afterwards, and they seem to have been fine since.
