    I bought this through my company with our logo on it and didn’t realize the quality of the product until I started using it. Just a magnificent tool for work and for pleasure and travel as well. Fits everything that I could need to carry with me and expands to hold more!

    I have had this backpack for over one year & it is great. I use it for work & when I travel with my family. It has been used & abused & really taken it, it does not even look worse for the wear. I store my precious 15″macbook pro, along with tons of paperwork and nothing has happened to it or my macbook. I have been through quite a few bags breaking & tearing. Definitely recommend highly!

    I bought the backpack years ago driving on a daily basis from work to home on a naked motor cycle all weather. This MacBook case is extremely good and only lets a bit of water thru when you really
    drive in a shower where even you’re best motorcycle protection is soaked, even then the MacBook is protected. Also I totaled my motor cycle and this backpack saved my life by preventing me from rolling to the other lane. Even years after that it still functions 100%. The only negative i can find about Brenthaven is that they don’t make the steel blue ones enough. The backpack still functions 100% but is a bit dirty riding for years through all seasons. Now I can wash it of course but the new ones have better features for my office needs so I’m trying to buy a new one but I want the blue one which I can’t find anywhere. But I can say this, if you drive a motorcycle and need a Backpack BUY THIS ONE….The place for the notebook or Macbook protects you’re back unlike other
    backpacks where you can break you’re back. After 5 years of driving in the wind not one tear…

    I bought this backpack style MacBook case for a two week tour in Europe, my only bag. With the souvenirs it was a bit tight at the end of the trip, but performed flawlessly. I didn’t want to leave my laptop in the hotel but carrying this MacBook case was all day comfortable. Not one complaint in that department. The front pocket is deep and I wish it had easier access.It’s not hard to lose things in the bottom. On the bright side though, you won’t be having things fall out from there. Overall, I’m extremely pleased with this backpack.

    I initially purchased a Expandable Trek backpack MacBook case in 2007 when I purchased a 15″ Macbook Pro. It was offered as pretty much the only case you’d want for the Mac. I didn’t think that much of it at the time of purchase, but it was perfect as time went on. The Mac was safely stowed in the MacBook case, and the arrangements of the pockets, and other doohickeys were clearly well thought out. I wore it to and from work 5 days a week. Usually on bus and subway, but often walking up to 4 miles at a time. After about 3 years of this, it started looking a bit worn. The stiff wire used to clip on the helmet net came out of their sleeves, and the padding/mesh at the bottom of the back had worn through from months of me walking around fully loaded. So, I wrote Brenthaven, and told them that their wonderful MacBook case was failing. So they sent me another one in 2010. Now I did expect them to send me a replacement, but the Trek they replaced it with had numerous improvements from the first one. The fabrics were tougher, panels were reinforced, and the stitching was better, all sorts of subtle improvements. About the only remaining improvement needed on the Trek from the one they sent me is the key ring. The little plastic clip that attaches to the rest of the MacBook case has a little ball joint that is just too flimsy to carry a keyring that has more than a couple of keys on it. Other than that this thing rocks. You wont be disappointed.

    I needed a dual purpose carry on that could go from overhead to in the field and the Expandable Trek Back Pack fit the bill! It has been a mainstay for bringing everything I need as a producer/ director working in the field on various television productions. From DSLR’s, portable hard drives, adaptors, iPod and sunglasses… this has a place for everything and everything in its place. It has been with me to the far reaches of Ellesmere Island in the Arctic and from coast to coast in every situation imaginable. From motorcycle to snow sled, and from air to sea my ‘portable office’ has always provided outstanding protection for my Mac book and all the other ‘stuff’ we all need. I would give it a 10 out of 10. 4 years old and still works like a charm… in fact I think it’s just getting broke in

    As a former winter mountaineer, I¹ve known and loved some great backpacks in my day. Of course, I never expected this kind of quality, purpose and attention to detail in a lowly computer backpack. I ordered the Expandable Trek pack as a multi function computer/carry-on/daypack, to replace an aging 10 year old Rakgear bag (I won¹t keep a bag I don¹t love.) I can tell you right now, I¹m looking forward to carrying this bag for a very very long time. The pictures do not do this bag justice! I¹ve looked at a ton of bags in the stores and none of them impressed me. Boy am I glad I heard about Brenthaven. It’s the perfect size for an overnighter, a day hike and a carry-on bag. I couldn’t be more pleased! Did I mention the super-super fast shipping, ordered it on Monday, had it on my back on Wednesday! Thank you Brenthaven!

    I am amazed at the difference in quality offered by this MacBook case. Obviously a lot of design and engineering thought went into it. I am 59 and have degenerative disc and joint disease. I wanted a backpack but did not think that I would be successful in finding one for my laptop that would allow me to carry weight without pain. I am able to do so with this MacBook case, plus the designers seem to have thought of everything without adding unneeded trivialities which only add weight . Thank you for a great product!

    As a returning college student I cannot express how much I love my Trek Backpack! I assumed initially that this would be my school bag. How wrong I was. This is my everything bag. On a daily basis it provides the room and comfort to schlep around all the books and supplies a college student requires, plus my laptop, lunch and whatever I need for later. Living in Washington the weather is unpredictable at best, the expandable section allows me to fill my bag to the brim and then easily store my jacket during brief sunny periods. I find myself making this bag my go to travel companion as well, it has now been to multiple continents and countries with me as well as around the US, it is perfect as a carry-on on long flights and a wonderful weekend pack for quick jaunts. I am consistently surprised at just how comfortable it is when it weighs quite a bit full of books and electronics, once it is on it seems a fraction of the overall weight. I love surprising people pulling things out of the many varied pockets, just when they think my bag can’t possibly be holding any more stuff out comes. Thank you Brenthaven for making my college experience a little more comfortable and organized.

    A few years ago, I purchased one of the best back packs I’ve ever owned, the Expandable Trek BP. It’s been with me through good times and bad, long hauls and quick trips. In short, It was my all-purpose, everyday, any-situation bag. Work trip? got enough room for all my tech AND clothes. Weekend getaway? got enough room for all my tech AND clothes. I loved ALL the pockets, even the most obscure ones were put to use (two vertical slots on the front, the small net pockets on the sides, etc.). Unfortunately, good times do come to an end, and my Trek has succumb to the test of time and wear. The shoulder straps have finally started to fray from carrying the weight equivalent of a small child for hours on end. Still even at it’s poor condition, it was worth every penny.
    I was happy to find out that Brenthaven had a lifetime guarantee. So I would not be without my pack for long. It was to my disappointment that the new BP was just a shell of what it used to be; though build quality is still exceptional and extremely functional. Less pockets (minus 6 from a quick count), and considerably smaller too. Hell, even the little reflectors in front are gone… To put it into perspective, I did research on the BP before I purchased it. If this “new” BP is what Brenthaven offered, I honestly would have gone to the competition. It were the details that made me fall in love with my first Trek in the first place. Here’s how I see it now, the new version is an all-business, no-fuss type; while the old Trek would be a spontaneous, be-prepared-for-everything, bring-everything bag.

    Great backpack. It’s everything the write-up says and more! And after spending $2500 on my MacBook Pro, this is a worthwhile investment to protect such precious cargo. Did I mention it has more places/room to store things than any other backpack that I’ve ever seen?!

    The capacity is great, I can fit everything I need for college into the MacBook Pro case and it allows for superb organization. I like that the backpack MacBook case expands and contracts as I need it to, as well as the removable mesh pocket. The sunglasses pouch and iPod holder are very nice designs as well. The side pouches really come in hand for carrying water bottles. My 15.4″ MacBook pro fits snugly and doesn’t shift very much at all. I appreciate a company that stands by their product and offers a lifetime warranty. The price of the MacBook case is outstanding. At $120 it cannot be beat.

    This is a really, really good laptop backpack. Most backpacks out there are way too big (Booq, etc.) or way too small. This one is just the right size..and when you need to carry more stuff the expansion chamber has you covered. I use it with a 15″ unibody MacBook Pro and it’s perfect. The pack also distribute the load very nicely. I was shocked at how lite everything was when I switched from my Timbuktu laptop messenger bag. The only draw back is there aren’t any pockets to hold a 32 oz. Nalgene bottle.

    We handed out Brenthaven Expandable Trek backpacks to all our employees to carry their laptops. One of the bags with laptop inside fell down from a fast moving motor bike. The bag took some beating, but the laptop was fine. I have used the Trek and Pro-Lite backpacks. The backpacks are amazing products that securely protect laptops, and have carefully engineered pouches and holders. Waiting for one that adds protection to iPad in a backpack as well.

    I could go on and on about how awesome the Expandable Trek Backpack MacBook case is, and the rigorous pounding I put it though, but the best experience I’ve had with Brenthaven is with the customer service department. It’s become very rare to find a customer service department that is pleasant to deal with, that helps you out with no hassles or problems. Brenthaven is one of those companies that does customer service right. My backpack MacBook case had a minor problem with it, and I contacted customer service to get information on a repair. I had given them an incorrect e-mail address to reach me by mistake, and they actually reached out to me via phone to get the e-mail corrected and tell me that they’re shipping me a brand new backpack MacBook case. The backpack MacBook case arrived very quickly and they even encouraged me to give the mostly functional old backpack to a local charity. I can’t believe how awesome the experience was. No hassle, no fuss, just great customer service. I only wish more companies were like Brenthaven.

    The Expandable Trek Backpack that I bought back in November certainly has paid itself off a few times over! Last Friday, I sustained a very bad fall that consisted of falling and sliding into an escalator. Suddenly, I found myself being carried upwards in a fetal position. I attempted to get up but fell back. Thanks to the people who were able to get me up and be on my merry way. Throughout the fall, the spikes on the escalator scratched my leather shoe and pants. However, there was not a dent made on my backpack and my MacBook Pro remained unharmed. I know that I made the right choice in buying Brenthaven, so thank you for making an excellent product!

    So I bought this backpack in second grade and I am now in seventh. I love it so much I was looking on the Brenthaven website and I saw the trek and thought I would write a review. I was looking around and found a suggestions menu. I looked at my backpack trying to think of an idea but I couldn’t. Its perfect. I take it camping to parks. It is in pretty good condition considering how much its been through. I highly recommend this.

    I really love the Trek backpack although I may have a slightly older model now. Mine seems to have reflective fabric on it while the new one does not. It is a sturdy bag that I use for conferences, travel, workshops, school – everything. I’ve hauled books in it to computer equipment including a full sized projector. It’s expandable, has many hidden pockets, very versatile. I highly recommend this bag and can’t say enough about Brenthaven to others.

    I just went through my closet and counted six Brenthaven bags. It’s not because they wear out; it’s because they don’t, and Brenthaven just keeps making new ones I like better. The oldest of the six looks pretty much like it did on day one, which tells you all you need to know about build quality. I’m a journalist and have used Brenthaven bags for a dozen years all over the world. They’re the best. Quality zippers and materials, state-of-the-art protection that they somehow just keep improving, and great customer service. This particular backpack is one of my favorites, just because of its flexibility — and comfort. Years ago, Brenthaven made great bags that lagged behind in features such as breathable mesh backing on backpacks. No more. This one is as comfortable in warm weather as the best day-hiking pack I own. And it’s a heck of a lot sturdier.

    I recently returned to college for a career change. There are so many books and supplies that none of my standby MacBook cases were doing me any justice. Enter the Expandable Trek Backpack MacBook case. There is a place for everything I need and more! I am organized, I can finally fit everything I need while being confident that my laptop and other electronics are protected and the MacBook case is super comfortable and stylish! This is my new favorite bag and I have a feeling it will be for quite a while to come. It is apparent that a lot of time, energy and love went into this MacBook case design and I truly appreciate it!

    good bag for flying; avoid checked baggage fees

    Ezra Citron

    Brenthaven sent me this new backpack to replace an older version that had some damage to the fabric. Their warranty/replacement process was painless and I feel really good about this new bag. The bag is super comfortable to wear; the shoulder straps and bag itself have nice padding, and when I fly, I can avoid paying any baggage fees because this bag stows perfectly under an airplane seat. It has enough space and compartments to hold everything I need for a few days somewhere, including a nicely padded computer compartment, several easy-access pockets for wallet, keys, etc., and deeper internal pockets for other valuables. Using the expansion pocket, I even end up with enough room to fit an extra pair of shoes. Some nice additional features are an internal velcro pocket and a key clip so that keys are not lost in the bottom of the bag.
