Hope I'm not too late to the party.. I got the Thule Subterra 30L about two years ago and I love it. I can't rightly say that it's BIFL but you can see the post about their sling pack from a couple hours ago and judge for yourself.

4 Stars for good build quality, but moved on.

This is my second Thule laptop bag. I bought it to replace my aging backpack of the same brand. I love the build quality and durability of this brand so I bought what appeared to be the new replacement for my old bag.

BLUF: This bag is rugged, snug-fitting and has excellent build quality. I gave...

The perfect sized backpack for every day use

I purchased both the 23L and 30L Subterra to compare because I was unsure of the size (see the photo if you're interested in a side-by-side profile shot of both). I found the 30L to be more useful for me, day-to-day. I commute on the subway in NYC and need something flexible as things come up. The 2...

The best backpack ever. Period. For professionals, students and travelers. I would know!

This is the best backpack ever, and I am someone who would know! I am a 36 y/o research scientist, mom and world traveler and I wear a backpack to work every single day, in addition to taking one on every trip and vacation I've ever been on. My favorite backpack before this was also in the Thule lin...

For the Professional with Style

The Subterra line is handsome and sleek. The fabrication, detailed structure, and the (fun) pop colors tell others you believe in quality, clean lines, and have a smart sense of style. That's what initially drew me to Thule and this backpack line. See I first bought the 23 liter Subterra in Mineral ...

Subterra review

I know a lot of people say they don't review items and it's their first time doing it.. I don't review items and it is my first time doing so. I'll do it for free, only because it is Thule. This Subterra model is really special. I own a bigger 'Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop Backpack' which I really like...
