Timbuk2 Lightweight Parker Backpack reviews

Lightweight Parker Backpack (Jet Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great commuting & travel pack, but storm flap is ANNOYING As an owner of a regular Parker Pack, I was excited to review the lightweight weatherproof version. My only gripe with the regular Parker was the weight, and at 2.54 lbs, the Parker Light comes in almost a full pound lighter, and this is very noticeable. As I mentioned in my Parker review, I ended up liking the vertical design, which helped distribute weight well and keep it closer to my back. The design also fit perfectly under an airline seat and used the space well. The magnetic snaps on the chest, waist, and compression straps are neat and functional, and the mesh back never felt hot. My laptop and anything else in the pack always felt well protected. I also am a fan of the reflective panels and straps for added safety at night. Since it's lighter than the regular Parker, I would've rated it higher than the Parker Pack, but one thing was more and more annoying as I used the pack: the storm flap over the main zipper is made from the same thinner material as the rest of the pack so it easily snags in the zipper (see picture comparison). Since it's thinner it's also less rigid, so you can't keep it folded back. I would recommend they add a very thin insert inside the storm flap to fix this issue, and then I'd rate this pack 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for commuters carrying computer equipment I use this primarily while commuting within the city. I live in Philadelphia and use the subway/bus systems for my daily commute. Generally, I've found this is perfect for carrying my laptop and related equipment (cords, etc.) It's much lighter than I expected, and it's incredibly comfortable, though I haven't had the chance to try it out during a humid Philly summer yet. The only thing I don't especially like is that the backpack is slightly too long for my body (I'm 5'2", and while I have a fairly long torso, I'm still short.) Taller people probably won't have this issue, but shorter purchasers probably need to keep this in mind. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent backpack This backpack is really durable and light weight. At first, when I touch the material, it feels thin. However when I try to tear it, it is durable. The slim shape is really good for biking. Many pockets and useful side pockets. I am impressed with the snap clips which is really easy to use. The zips are durable. The only complain is I do not like is the velcro in the bag is kind of rough. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backpack for bikers I wasn't aware of this particular model, but I was aware of Timbuk2 and their quality. This backpack, though, absolutely takes the cake. It's pretty much as if someone just thought of all my commuting needs and met them. First of all it's got an awesome giant reflective part on the back, which makes it totally ok and extra safe even to have a black backpack for evening commutes. Secondly, it's water and weatherproof. There's plenty of pockets to store all you need for a commuting lifestyle and I love the size and the quality. Timbuk2 can really make a great bag and with their lifetime warranty, it's not only a smart bet, it's a safe one. I would definitely recommend this backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versitile pack I love this pack. The size is perfect for commuting to work or traveling with a computer and kids. The pack has a lot of space, but is not as bulky as other packs. Living in the mid-west, I like that it is waterproof because we get a lot of rain and snow and I want to know my computer and other electronics are safe. The black pack is all black and is very inconspicuous, which is great. I am super happy with this pack and recommend it as a light weight quick commuter/travel pack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great backpack for all types of traveling I used this backpack for commuting and also traveling. It is as the zippers are hidden and when I'm on a busy CTA train where pickpocket is a usual, I don't need to be super self-conscience on keeping my backpack in sight at all times. With the zippers being tucked away it does make the zippers stuck on the backpack material around the zippers, so it makes it hard to zip and go. I have to carefully open and close the backpack every time. I would buy this backpack again even with the zipper issue. It is lightweight and does keep my belonging safe. Love all the pockets to keep myself organized. It is very stylish and makes me want to show off my great backpack to others. I was not aware of this product before this program, and now makes me more likely to keep an eye on this brand and their other products. I would recommend this product to all my CTA commuters and travellers. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bookbag! *I received this bag for review purposes* At first glance the bag is really nice looking. It looks like it is well made. It is too big for my liking. I'm fairly short and it just feels so weird on. The straps are comfortable. I did use this as an a weekend bag when I went away. I enjoyed that it had plenty of pockets. I was able to fit in plenty of clothes and toiletries. I just know that I would use this for school if it wasn't as long as it is. All in all this bag is nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bag I received this bag in exchange for an unbiased review. I have to say, when it arrived I was caught off guard. I thought it would be more like a messenger bag. I actually love this bag more than I thought I would. It has too many pockets. There is literally a section or crevice for anything you need to carry around. i use this for both work and personal use. Mostly work. I carry my laptop, paperwork, work out gear, tablet, etc. It's comfortable to carry too. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
