    recently bought this bag and have now had it for over a month. So far this has been the perfect backpack for traveling. It has plenty of compartments for everything you need. Even when this backpack is fully packed it holds it’s slim form factor. It’s very high quality but the leather on the bottom can get scuffed up easily. Other than that I have had no issues with it. I would deffinatly recommend it if you’re looking for a backpack like this.

    These are simply the best backpacks you can get. I have had two Brenthaven backpacks over the last twenty years (one was warranty replacement based on normal wear & tear) so they do support the lifetime warranty. Solidly build, great customer services… simply the best you can get.

    Stylish. Super comfy and supportive. Perfect for my train and business commutes. Couldn’t ask for anything better. Laptop fits perfectly inside it along with other items, like my mouse, notebooks, etc. And did I mention how incredibly stylish it is? I get compliments on it all the time. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

    I have been u big fan of Brenthaven from my first 17″MacBook Pro. To messenger bags, my MBA sleeve, you get the point. Back when Brenhaven first started out, I loved that they focused on Apple users. You would visit the site and it would ask you which Apple device you owned. Unlike other bag manufacturers that just told you they could hold a **” computer. And the style of the bags have always been beautiful and very durable. I’m partial to the Collins-series myself. But Brenthaven continues to impress me. I recommend them to everyone. -Jeff

    I’m loving the bag and the looks of it. The different sections are well defined and very useful. It feels comfortable and I can definitely see myself carrying this bag for hours. At the beginning I was a little confused though about where I was supposed to put my laptop since I I thought I could fit my 13 inch Mac in the middle pocket, but then I realized from the pictures that it goes in the back pocket of the bag (the middle pocket is a tablet or something smaller apparently). My only complaint about this is that since the actual pocket is so big, it leaves my laptop loose which can be a cause for concern. It is well padded so I’m pretty sure my laptop is well protected if I drop my bag with it, but having my computer bouncing still freaks me out a little. I’ve also noticed the padding on the outside layer of the bag which is nice and confortable, but I also noticed that it keeps some body heat which made my back sweat. Maybe I’m not used to it and we’ll see how it works during summer, but those are some things I’ve noticed through my brief usage of this bag.

    I was searching for a bag to carry around my Surface Book and in the end I choose this backpack: it was really a great choice! I am a professor and I travel a lot, always bringing my laptop, leatherman, tech gadgets (organized in a Cocoon Grid-it) and sometimes books with me. This backpack is lightweight, very well organized (really!), durable (I had it for a year and it still doesn’t show wear signs), well padded, ergonomic (the side laptop compartment is great) and definitely stilish. Only two sggestions: 1) I really liked to have two pen holder instead of one on the front pocket: I use both a normal pen and the Surface pen, and only one of those could be easilyaccessed this way! 2) I would like a version of this backpack made with real leather: heavier but more durable and better looking.

    Everything I never knew I needed. The way the backpack fits is awesome and the compartments are well thought out. I alternate between this bag and the Collins sling. Even though it’s much bigger it doesn’t look or feel huge on me.

    I just received mine today in Graphite (my coworker also got the Limited Edition version which is very similar but not quite the same). The bag looks fantastic inside and out and I have little doubt that it will be durable on the outside. The layout is nice inside with a good number of pockets HOWEVER there is only a single slot for a pen/pencil/stylus and that is a bit disappointing. My other major complaint about the design is the main compartment (not the laptop slot) and its zipper. The main compartment has quite a bit of space, however the zipper only goes ~1/3 of the way down, making it difficult to see what’s down in there and grab something specific and there is no sort of divider system in the bottom to separate all that space to a point where it is easier to find things by feel, so you’re basically rooting around blind or dumping everything out find what you’re looking for. My final reservation with this pack is the laptop sleeve. They really talk up this HDF protection but I certainly won’t be taking any chances. The laptop compartment has good padding for the front and back which is nice, but there is ZERO (at least that I could feel) padding on the sides and particularly worrisome is the pad on the bottom. The bottom pad isn’t super wide and is somehow velcro-d into place, however the big problem is that the padding isn’t continuous and there is a gap where the seam is that my brand new 15″ Retina Macbook Pro really seems to like settling into, which means it could get dinged if I set it down wrong/too hard. Even with those complaints, I still like the bag. It just doesn’t seem as bullet-proof as other older Brenthaven bags I’ve seen and the pockets aren’t as thoughtful as they could be. FWIW, I’m coming from a Timbuktu Custom Commute which has oodles of easily accessible, useful pockets, but the laptop protection is a joke. This bag, despite my reservations, offers much better protection than the Timbuktu.

    I bought this backpack on 7 December 2015 via the Apple Store. last week the top zipper of the main compartment came off. I chose this backpag for its alleged ruggedness but daily use since less than a year has had the best of the zipper it seems. Other than that i really like the product but it did not withstand the test of daily use in my context of work (I live and work in Afica (Niger).

    Awesome bag!

    Scott Young

    I have been searching for the perfect laptop backpack for years and finally found it. This bag is very nice looking, trim, lightweight, has just the right number of pockets and compartments, and provides quick and easy access to my laptop. It fits easily under an airplane seat. The materials look and feel great (I got the indigo blue). I was worried I’d find the color to be too casual for work and almost ordered the graphite. But, the indigo is very professional looking and I am very happy I went with the indigo instead of graphite. The color stands out just enough from the sea of indistiguishable black laptop backpacks without looking strange or unprofessional. I finally have a laptop backpack that I am not self-conscious about taking to a customer meeting.

    Perfect size for daily use

    Doug

    I purchased this backpack 9 months ago for its size and style. Most other brands of a similar style were too $$$, and others looked like a school backpack. It’s perfect for daily train and city movements. Carries everything, MacBook Pro, notebook, iPad, extra small bag for cables & plugs. Also fits a Contigo mug inside and small snacks. With all that I’m able fit a packabke Patagonia vest inside too. Very happy!
