Comfort

Supremely Comfortable
Carry comfort is the primary criterion for judging any pack. And the Hydra 38 carries beautifully. It sits high and tight on my back. Load-lifter straps are extraneous on most daypacks, because the short pack frames prevent them from actually working. In this regard, the Hydra is unusual, perhaps un...

Timbuk2 Tech Roll Top Backpack Review | Pack Hacker
We also don’t love how easy it is for you to scuff up the pack. The scratches and marks aren’t anything major, and we haven’t been treating this pack with particular care, but it’s still not something you want to see after only a month of testing. But such is the cost of solid weather-resistance

Timbuk2 Authority Laptop Backpack Deluxe Review (2 Weeks of Use)
I guess if you want to carry two laptops, because there is a dedicated laptop compartment here in the back there's a sleeve there. If you want to carry any documents or another laptop, you could put your laptop in here too, and i do like that this sleeve is a little bit more protected. Just checking real quick, it's very tight with another laptop in there in the back, but yeah pretty much just a big main compartment there, and then this back part is great because it holds up to a 17-inch laptop.

Timbuk2 Tuck Pack
* Timbuk2 Scheme convertible: seems interesting.. * Rolltops: still warming to the idea, but haven't fully researched it yet. Something like the Timbuk2 Tuck seems interesting. * In general, seeing a lot of sleek looking backpacks in the 20-22L range, but preferably I would like the bag to be a bit larger to be a bigger qualitative difference from my current 19L EDC.
