Size

Thule Subterra 30L

(1/2)

The pouch from front to back is very narrow. I never did get anywhere near 30L to fit in this bag, and any effort to fill it caused it to be nearly unusuable as you had to pull everything out to find your stuff.

Zipper

Thule Subterra 30L

(1/1)

Good: good quality and very durable material, I do not see anything else Bad: front zipper hard to open because front storage always being push, storage place is very small for 30L, heavy and uncomfortable to carry. I may have to return it.

Laptop

Thule Subterra 30L

(1/1)

The laptop sleeve fits my HP Spectre X360 15" laptop perfectly. I LOVE that you can insert it in the sleeve at the top/inside of the bag but can access it via a zipper on the outside/side of the bag as well. I also keep my iPad Air 2 and all of my iPad and Laptop accessories and chargers etc. inside

Commute

Thule Subterra 30L

(1/2)

The build quality is excellent. If you want a light, rugged day pack for bike-commuting with nothing to snag you, this might be it. If you want it as a daily-use school bag, I would pass on this one, and go for one of Thule's ironically smaller (25L) "crossover" bags that seem to hold way more than this. See my photos for how the bottom half of the front pouch is nearly useless space

Strap

Thule Subterra 30L

(1/1)

Maybe the shoulder straps could be a bit more reinforced and sturdier because if there is a failure point to this backpack, in my opinion it would be at the shoulder straps.
