Timbuk2 Armory Pack reviews

Armory Pack (Jet Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have not gone a day without this since i purchased it I moved to the Netherlands a few months ago, knowing I would be commuting an hour each day by foot, train and bicycle. This backpack has been with me every single day. It is perfect for carrying my computer, and extra jacket and pair of shoes, picking up groceries, or to take with me on a weekend trip. On top of that it is basically waterproof, and has kept my computer dry during intense Dutch rainstorms! If there were one or two extra pockets in the main compartment that would have been nice, but with that said, it I lost my backpack tomorrow I would replace it with the same one the next day. I LOVE this backpack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but could be much better The bottom part of the bag does not have enough padding to reliably protect electronic equipment, or any fragile objects from drops and falls, and the laptop compartment inside the main compartment would have been better if it was either sewed to the sides instead of the back part of the bag, or have it be able to stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from versatile - good for in- and outdoor activities This one was an impulse buy, and I'm glad I gave in to impulse. It's another one that's good for people with narrow shoulders - I took it snowshoeing, with a down jacket, lunch, water bootle and some other stuff inside, and it never felt overly heavy. I've been carrying it to work with my computer and stacks of papers, and it's heavy, but so compact that the weight doesn't bother as much as I'd expect. It carries much more than I'd expected without being bulky. This bag is very well-designed. There are pen slots in the front, two sleeves inside which are great for holding a computer and a tall folder. I've never been one for bags with lots of pockets and compartments, but the pockets all make sense and are useful in this bag. The attention to detail is impressive. I love that the lid zipper opens toward the back - so smart for security. My only gripe is that that top zipper doesn't always zip smoothly - it catches on the corners a little, and needs two hands. Pretty minor complaint, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all-around bag with good access to compartments I purchased this with several intentions in mind, for a travelling bag, for taking my laptop and textbooks to school, and at the same time bringing a pair of climbing or running shoes along. This is my 3rd TimBuk2 pack and so far I love it just as much as my others, everything this company makes is both high quality and thought out. I do have the additional insight as a backpack fitter in the outdoor industry so I would like to make some key comments on improving the design of the backpack. Don't let these deter you, I am super happy with the backpack and it works great Thoughts on design -The bottle opener is located at the ideal placement (atleast for me) for the sternum strap. Thankfully they designed it to be removable, which allowed me to move the strap below the bottle opener and this works pretty well, except the sternum strap tends then to slide low on the chest straps -Personally I am not a huge fan of sewn-in elastic bands for carrying water bottles, as that elastic is going to have a shorter lifespan than the rest of the bag, and you can't tension the strap. My last bag (sorry I forget the model) used a piece of elastic cordage with a sliding sinch, which made it useful even after the elastic wore out -The compression straps are kinda useless in most instances, they need to be a inch or two longer and not sewn so far away from the front panel. I would also recommend adding a buckle to the compression straps, so you can run them through a pair of sandals for example -Add more sewn-in organization inside the front panel for notepads and pens and the such. What is there is fine but could be a bit more substantial and have more pockets I know that seemed like a lot of complaints but I really do quite like this bag. I used it for a full day riding around San Francisco on a trip to the city, and since then have used it for a month as my commuter college backpack. Great all around bag I expect to use for years to come

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek medium size backpack! I searched and searched for the perfect backpack. I had to figure out what I loved about my 3 different bags so I could buy 1 to replace them. (I am downsizing my life) The Armory bag was my final choice. I was looking at every brand and even custom made bags. My needs are vast as I am a guy who carries lots of personal things (headphones, laptop, phone, chargers, book, journals, pens, wallet paperwork, water bottle, snacks, sunglasses and reading glasses), Plus my two kids need to be accommodated when we are together and they come with their own set of items, most important of all snacks, diapers, and wipes. My bag life before the Armory bag basically had me forgetting something, somewhere, almost every day. I had my work bag, my dad bag, and my EDC bag. Something did always make it in the switch. I would forget my wallet in my dad bag but was at work trying to buy coffee. I hope you get the picture. Now my daily life can fit in my Armory bag. There is enough room to cram a whole day of adventure items for 3 people while being sleek (when not full of stuff) and stylish enough to take to work. One of my co-workers already asked if I minded if he purchased one, not at all Daniel just not the same color ok! Timbuk2 hit it out of the park on this sub $120 bag. My only negative about the bag is the green color is more of a grey. That was an initial bummer as I was really hoping for it to be green but the color is still nice. Also, the security zipper could be improved. If the two parts that accept the lock could overlap or if they were a male/female style that would be nice. Other than that, I think most people would be happy with this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pack for travel excursions Purchased this pack for class and for travel, most notably my recent trip to Singapore. What a perfect pack to get around an amazing city and for my weekly classes. Comfortably fits my Mac Book Air, an iPad, a rain jacket and all the essentials I need to go from A to B and everywhere in between. It's great looking an really comfortable. This is my third Timbuk2 bag and won't be my last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it's great. Love this thing. Looks great, feels great. Easy to break in. It does run a little smaller than I had hoped, but then again, it's a laptop backpack too. I would give this a 4.75 star rating.
