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

Zipper

Timbuk2 Authority Laptop Pack Deluxe

(1/2)

The zippers on this pack have altogether been working smoothly during our testing. They have large, easy-to-grab pulls that help them zip and unzip with ease. This comes as no surprise, as they’re from YKK, which is a brand we have mostly positive experiences with (and a lot of them). We do have one small nitpick with the zippers around the main and laptop compartments that we’ll cover later in the review

Commute

Timbuk2 Authority Laptop Pack Deluxe

(1/1)

First things first, let’s take a look at this pack’s external pockets, starting with the large pocket on the front. We’ve been keeping the essentials like our keys, wallet, and a pair of headphones inside for easy grabbing-and-going while we’re on the move, and its bright liner makes everything inside easy to spot. We do wish the zipper for this pocket were on the opposite side, as we’re typically slinging bags around our right side when reaching inside, but your mileage may vary.

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

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
