Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Timbuk2 Authority Laptop Pack Deluxe

(1/1)

Spontaneously bought this as a replacement for my daily wear, the Timbuk2 Showdown backpack. Absolutely love it, no buyer's remorse here! It has enough pockets for everything I need for both school and work. It's very comfortable to wear, and I like how you can secure the adjustable straps so the extra strap parts aren't flapping or dragging around.

Compartment

Timbuk2 Authority Laptop Pack Deluxe

(1/1)

I can fit the laptop drawing pad, pens, book, and mouse and chord in a really tight package in the three distinct compartments. the laptop slot is very well padded with quilted stitching. The pockets are great for ID, keys and such. Just the right amount

Carry-on

Timbuk2 Authority Laptop Pack Deluxe

(1/2)

At the very top of the bag is a thick handle with lots of padding that’s comfortable to grab and convenient for picking up the pack when you need to move it or get something out. It also features that same seat belt-like material you’ll find on the shoulder straps that’s nice and smooth in hand.

Size

Timbuk2 Authority Laptop Pack Deluxe

(1/3)

When it arrived, I thought its a little snug, how can that be for a backpack that is specified as 28 liters. As I was transferring my stuff out of my old bag into the new one, anticipating it would expand and reveal its real metal, I was not able to get all my stuff into the new backpack. Being an engineer, I went back to the website and took their dimensions and calculated the volume at full dimension and it measured 19.9 liters!!!! Not even close to the 28 Liter rated capacity

Strap

Timbuk2 Authority Laptop Pack Deluxe

(1/2)

5. Shoulder straps. These straps never stay in place. I have to constantly adjust the length of the shoulder straps every couple days because they will loosen just by carrying this backpack around
