πŸ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Lightweight at 1.7 lbs which is very easy to carry around.
  • Highly durable which means it's going to last.
  • The price is really cheap considering the quality of the bag.

πŸ€” Things to Consider

  • Isn't weather resistant so might need to think twice if you'll be using it in a tropical country trip.
  • The shoulder strap and the back panel can be a bit uncomfortable at times.

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "With that in mind I can say, this is an impressive bag, worth the money, and a new addition to my collection. When traveling with it, I loved being able to put my normal packing cubes inside the big cube that comes with the bag and then pull it all out on arrival and I was able to use the bag as a day bag anytime I needed to carry extra and it never felt super bulky."
  • "Just what I was looking for. Sturdy, roomy, lots of small pockets, and two separate large pockets. My 13 inch MacBook Pro fits with room to spare."
  • "After 2 years, it is still my favorite bag. It has held up well. I took it on a 3 week trip to China last year. While I did not take a laptop with me, this was a great travel bag. I had a plastic document envelope in the laptop sleeve, and it easily carried a rain jacket, change of underwear, and my camera gear and fit easily under the seat in front of me on planes. After 2 years there are no tears or even scratches on the material, the zippers still work perfectly, and I love the look of the bag."

6 Best Timbuk2 Backpacks Reviewed, Rated & Compared

"The Parkside backpack is a fairly small bag that's perfect for both college and high school students, as well as for office workers. Do not be discouraged by the fact that the backpack is small - it still has plenty of space inside, as well as a laptop sleeve that can carry a 15” device."
