Size

Timbuk2 Authority Pack

(1/1)

The water bottle holder also doesn't fit water bottles comfortably. Overall, this is a well made, sturdy bag, but didn't impress me much when it came to comfort or size. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Zipper

Timbuk2 Authority Pack

(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

Laptop

Timbuk2 Authority Pack

(1/2)

Main compartment is only separated from the hard surface of wherever you're placing your backpack with a very thin material, offers no protection for anything that's inside the main compartment. 2. Laptop compartment's sewing and seams will leave marks on some surfaces of laptop. Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 was visibly scuffed under certain lighting conditions after transporting it couple weeks in the laptop compartment

Commute

Timbuk2 Authority Pack

(1/2)

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 Pack

(1/1)

I really like the combination of pockets. I tried several backpacks and settled on this one because it has more and thinner compartments. I work mostly with papers and folders, so it stays more organized without having a large/wide main section.

Strap

Timbuk2 Authority Pack

(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
