Timbuk2 Aviator Backpack Review

A medium-large sized travel bag with sturdy, rigid outer material, a couple external pockets and a removable internal divider that makes for actually a pretty interesting way of accessing things in transit.

  • I like the solid handles and straps, and the sturdy, rigid materials. I wish it had another inch or two in depth… You’d still be able to get it on strict carry on requirements.
  • This bag is not usable as a daily carry or office bag unless it’s only for a few days.
  • Solid organization inside and outside the bag. Main compartment is split with a removable divider which makes for a nice storage space at the top of the bag for your medium sized items. 2 quick access pockets on the outside of the bag, one on the front panel, one on the top flap of the bag.
  • It easily fits everything I need for travel in a single tight, protected package.
  • Laptop compartment says it only fits 13″ laptop, but I can slide my 15″ macbook pro in there.
