Timbuk2 Spire Laptop Backpack reviews

Spire Laptop Backpack (Merlot) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 201.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rough fabric tears up your clothing Overall, I like the bag and was starting to get used to the storage capabilities including the limited pockets. However, after a month or so, I started noticing the back of my shirts becoming 'pilled' just above my waistline. Turns out, the rough fabric Timbuk2 uses on this bag is rough enough to tear up my clothing. Now I have a few hoodies and softer cotton shirts that are ruined because of the bag. My workaround for now is to just synch-up the straps so tight that the bag lifts off my back, but it's not exactly practical. I've been working with customer service but they are refusing to cover this under warranty. Anyone else having these issues?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Contents were soaked today during the 1st good SF rain. I like the bag in general. It looks cool and feels sturdy. I got this for a trip I was taking, as well for my regular commute and needed something I could carry my laptop and my camera in with some extra's. It definitely has room for all of that, but disastrously today after getting caught in a downpour in San Francisco I discovered that everything at the bottom of the bag was soaked. I'm not sure why the waterproof fabric isnt consistent all the way around the bag. Apparently, the side lining is not waterproof at all which makes the entire bag NOT waterproof to me. Really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing keeps impressing me I used this for school for a few months before taking it to the limits on my road bike. It held all my books, supplies, laptop and charger, without looking bulky. Once I got a job and chose to commute by bike, I was surprised by how well it handled everything. Each day I pack my laptop, lunch, a change of clothes & shoes, a light jacket, Beats headphones, a book and a few bike tools. It still looks great and has a bit of room to spare. It is very well made and has a lot of pockets and compartments for everything a business or academic commuter could need in a bag. Needless to say, I feel pretty fly as I cruise around Chicago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best This bag is more perfect in person. I have had several Timbuk2 bags in the past, but mainly commuted with an Osprey daypack that claimed to be water proof. I got a little tired of finding my things damp, and the bag wasn't quite big enough to fit everything I wanted it to carry. I'm moving to London to go to grad school, and needed a bag that could keep up with me and the weather, so I bought the Spire. Super comfy, roll-top, water proof (sailboat tested), great number of pockets and secret compartments. I don't think I'll ever get sick of looking at this bag. Timbuk2, you've done it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality and Customer Service Problems I purchased this bag a few weeks ago after seeing some good reviews of it online. As a bicycle commuter, it seemed to offer a lot of functionality I was missing in my prior bag. However, I had a quality issue with the bag as soon as I removed it from the packaging. The sternum strap broke the moment I attempted to unsnap it. I emailed customer service on July 23 and never heard back, and their auto-reply states that follow-up emails will send you to the end of the queue. So overall, it seems like there's a great design to the product, but it's not worth the quality issues and lack of customer support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've had this for several years and it's the BEST! I don't often write reviews, but this bag has been so useful and so stylish that it has become a staple in my life. It's years old now, and it is exactly the same with no noticeable wear or tear. I am constantly packing it with books or laptops, harddrives, interfaces, small instruments, cables, pencils, paper, folders, everything,and it stays magically slim even enough to slide under the seat on airplanes. I have a long torso so it fits perfectly on my back even if packed to the last rung of the roll-top. I also get compliments on the style. LOVE IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag! Its simple and practical! I use this for school and everyday use. Its a great bag because its simple and very practical. It also has lots of pockets which becomes very useful at times and it also has a great design. Besides using for school I've used it for my EDC and I've also travelled with it using it for day trips to weekend trips and the longest trip I've done was nothing big but I just had this bag for a one week trip vacation so it was nice because it helped me to travel light. Its a great bag and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice quality backpack who also wants to look stylish. BTW: I've gotten lots of complements on the bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Biking I think this is perfect for someone who commutes to work/school by bike. It has enough sleeves for your laptop and a tablet along with other books. I use this bag when travelling for because it stores tons of things in the main compartment. The outer surface is water resistant so if you're ever suddenly caught in some light rain it will remain dry on the inside which is fantastic! The ULock straps are what really makes it ideal for daily use because that's what I mainly use and many of my friends have bought the same bag for the same reason. I fell on my bag (without any electronics inside) when biking once and overall nothing ripped besides the mesh water bottle sleeve on the side. I think if you're willing to invest in a worthwhile bag this would be it.
