A rugged roll-top with an innovative closure system that involves bike tubes and matte metal. Yes, this is necessary. A pet project of our parisian cyclist designer, the grid pack utilizes bike tubes to create stretchy loops for securing the truck's roll-top and matte metal hooks for locking things down. Reflective hits and weatherproof zippers pair with thoughtful back paneling and air mesh straps for a truly pro-cyclist wear, and laptop protection and a quick access magnetic front pocket add a touch of tech to make the grid work just as hard in the office as it does on the street.

Bought as a gift for my husband after MUCH searching and researching of bags.

He likes it a lot overall, and uses it all the time. He especially likea how light weight it is and the style of it.

However its hard to fit a large water bottle in the side bottle pockets (small disposable bottles fit but he has to squeeze his camelback in). The thick rubber straps to secure it closes also have 0 give, so it's hard to stretch the loop over the toggle to latch it, and almost impossible to latch if overstuffed.
Still definitely recommend.

I got the black one and it turns out it's a dark blue, not black. Under incandescent light you might think it's black, but when looking at it under sunlight it's obviously a dark blue. There must be a black version somewhere though because I have seen photos of it. The black listed here is not it though.

It's a descent back construction-wise. I am glad it's tinier with less pockets than my previous bags as it has forced me to cut down and be more efficient with the stuff I carry daily.

This is a great backpack. You can change the size and it has zippers on the side. It is waterproof so it can be used in all types of weather. It is very light when empty. A great product.

Loved everything about this backpack

After spending over a year searching for a pannier that was not just a "bucket", I happened into the Timbuk2 store in Portland and found this pack. I have used it for over a year to commute by bike to work. Was a bit concerned about the plastic connection onto the bike, but it has held up even when the bike it mounted sideways hanging on the hook on the MAX train (and I never connect the velcro loop to at the bottom so it does flop over when hung sideways). It is pretty roomy for clothing, and a smaller laptop. To put in groceries, I carry a bungie cord and giant binder clip so I don't have to roll the top and use the straps to secure the opening. The backpack is very comfortable to wear but does add a lot to the weight/bulk of the pack. This still is a huge improvement over the "bucket" pannier with a shoulder strap which was always awkward when arriving somewhere that I had to carry my pack extensively. How I would improve it (to give it 5 stars):
1) Adjustable straps used to secure the top closure of the bag. The current system uses recycled innertubes (nice idea but...) but it is hard to move the metal hook in and out of the rubber loops and you can't expand the pack to the full capacity (thus the bungie cord hack)
2) Gusset the front pocket - waterproof pocket for keys and other quick essentials is really hard to access once the pack is full and expanded out.
3) expand the side pockets so you can put a regular bike water bottle in them.
4) have a mesh pocket inside so you can keep bike tools etc... handy without having to dump the entire contents out to find. Maybe even large enough for those who want to slip in a laptop or tablet.

Got caught in the rain many times and never had the inside leak. After a year of constant use, the bag still looks good. With a few improvements, it could be the perfect bag for bike commuters.

When I first opened the package of the Grid Pack Jet Black, I was a bit hesitant with the material. It seems very stiff and shiny, but when I look through the entire bag, I was impressed. I like how electronics would be secure and safe. I really like the practicality of it. It has a ton of pockets and I LOVE the roll down feature to keep rain out. I would buy the Grid Pack Jet Black because it serves a wonderful purpose. I would recommend the Grid Pack Jet Black to others. I used this for everyday travel back and forth to work.

I've used this pack a few times since receiving it and it's great! The roll-top makes it great to transform from a small pack for carrying a few items to a large pack to carry many. The side-zipper makes it very easy to access the items and the divider inside keeps your laptop separate from the rest of the items. Also the outside material is great for keeping the contents dry. The only thing I would change is that I would've like the front pocket to be a zipper or snap instead of a magnetic strip but other than that this will definitely be my go-to pack going forward.

I use this backpack primarily for work and transporting my laptop and other paper items. It's sturdy, looks great and has a few compartments which are really great when you have a decent amount of stuff you are taking with you (as I always do). My ONLY negative about this are the straps to open the large compartment where your laptop is stored. They are hooks that you slide into a strap versus a buckle that you can quickly snap open and closed. The hooks are great for security, but I find it somewhat cumbersome to open quickly and definitely to close quickly. It has loosened up a bit since I first started using it - and honestly my only complaint. It wouldn't keep me from buying the bag - just something to be aware of. Having this backpack has eliminated the need to carry a large purse as well as a laptop bag. I can carry this on my back with all of my pertinent work items and carry a purse with only the items I need.
