Commute

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/6)

A little stiff, other than that, a solid commuter choice for school/work/travel. The Moss color is better in person than in the photos! It’s comfortable and my laptop feels safe and secure in it.

Mountain Hardwear AMG 105 Pack

(1/2)

Outstanding durability and the chops to carry huge amounts of weight make the AMG 105 ideal for multiweek hauls. It handles 80-pound loads comfortably, thanks to memory-foam-like lining on the shoulder straps and a pivoting hipbelt, as well as a strong, U-shaped aluminum stay.

This one is for my youngest headed off to college in a few weeks. These backpacks are durable and stylish.

Zipper

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/6)

Bag is great, but the front pocket zipper is a bit had to zip and doesn't close all the way. Seems like maybe it is too close to seam of the fabric above it? Give my he cost of the bag I would have hoped for better. Otherwise it is good so far.

However, you need to moving on to the main opening, which is one of the greatest parts about this bag. It's just a straight extended zipper that has a three point: compression system, so you've got the center compression here. That will help you close it if you're really overloading it and then on each side. There's this little sort of wing extension with a nine hook, so you can release the nine hook on each side and then this whole thing opens up nice and big

Strap

TImbuk2 bags are great looking bags and some of them are decent quality. However the one I got is "Storm" and fabric feels too harsh, the straps are not comfortable whatsoever.

Um, we don't use ice axes just because of where we're located. So they are pretty handy if you were to put a basket on your trekking pole, you throw it in here and then you can use this strap. So you can kind of free up this pouch and also have a way to carry your trekking poles um. The base is really nice and sturdy; the design of it is meant for it to stay fairly upright, while you are loading and unloading your bag and not having to worry about it tipping on either side down

Size

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/7)

The bag seems too tall, and not deep enough (from front to back). I don't carry that much stuff, and I struggle to get it all to fit. The annoying part, is there's plenty of room on top of my stuff. It seems this space should be allocated to make the bag half an inch deeper

I'm 5'10" with a 34" waist. I purchased the M/L, and it just barely fits with everything adjusted down in size. If you were 6'2" and ʀOUNᴅ you could easily fit this.

Compartment

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/7)

Look at all I could fit inside --Simple. No endless selection of pockets and pouches that break up the volume so much that you can't fit big things in it --Separate padded laptop compartment --Soft-lined tablet sleeve --Attached key ring --Simple selection of pockets on the interior. Just enough for a couple of pens, a charger, etc. --One large exterior compartment --Nicely ventilated in the back --Strong top handle CONS: --I could do without the compression buckles on the sides

Here we have dimension paulien DX 40, which is super burly and can take crampons and all the abuse of an ice axe rubbing against it. On the front of the AMG, there's an oversized crampon pocket and then just behind that there is an exterior storage pocket which can fit a lot of things, but specifically has sleeves for a probe and a shovel and everything you need for traveling on snow. On the front of the AMG there's two ice axe loops for a basic tool, carry on the front of the AMG there's compression straps that can tuck and hide behind the crampon pocket, but come out if you need to overload and put a sleeping pad on the Front or if you just really need that extra compression to lock everything down same on the side on the water bottle, pocket the side compression tucks into the water bottle pocket to keep the outside clean or you can have it out for larger items such as a Tent or sleeping pad the side pockets on the AMG have the 840 d carpet fabric on the outside, and the still burly 200 d nylon on the inside make it totally strong enough to take the wear and tear of a snow picket. But it's also big enough for an average water bottle with the expandable gusset on the side

Comfort

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/3)

Was able to get this on sale after eyeing it up for a couple weeks and diligent research. This backpack is incredibly comfortable and well built! I’ve taken it to the Caribbean, including beaches, all day treks and the padding on the straps kept it comfortable all day! Will easily fit a 15” laptop in the pocket, and the main pocket has plenty of room for other things such as books or equipment. Is on the smaller size as backpacks go, but that’s what I was looking for.

This is it. Superb comfort, easily adjustable, tough but light fabrics, and well placed, truly useable pockets. Hands down my favorite pack. I trust it so much, i bought the 75 liter version also
