I am thrilled with my backpack. I plan to buy 5 more over the holidays for each of our kids. Very high quality and amazing service! Thank you!
Did tons of research, and finally landed on this bag. So glad I did. It's got a ton of room, but doesn't feel too bulky if it's not very full. Laptop sleeve is well padded. I got rained on the first day I used it and everything stayed dry. Package that was mailed to me had a hand written note from the founder thanking me for the purchase. It's an awesome bag, I highly recommend it.
I love bags. I usually get a new one every couple of years to suit my needs at the time so I did a lot of research and narrowed it down to a few big vendors. Then out of nowhere I saw an ad for this bag and it fit all of my needs better than the others. Side pocket big enough for my water bottle, slim and padded laptop area. Small top pocket for small items and big front pocket so I can have quick access to commonly used things. Big inside pocket and separate flap pocket with plenty of pockets.
On top of fitting all of my needs, I had a problem with my first bag and when I contacted support, the Founder of the company asked me to call him! He resolved the issue better than any company I've ever experienced. These are good guys.
I recommend this bag to EVERYONE who asks or doesn't.
When I buy a new bag, I do a lot of research and it was only through a late stage Google search did I find this company and I am so glad I did. I had my choices narrowed down to some pretty good bags from Herschel and TImbuk2, but the Porter bags blew everything away. Cinch straps to keep the size of the bag small when not filled with that much. Pockets for bottles on BOTH sides of the bag. Fits my HydroFlask on one side and I actually keep my phone in the other. A smaller pouch at the top of the bag for quick items like keys and wallet. I padded laptop compartment, net pocket in the main compartment and a front pocket that is as deep as the bag and has several individual pockets for pens and notebooks. This bag literally checked all of my marks for a bag. Things that I was going to figure out how to live without on another bag, Porter provided in their design. On top of which, a bag is donated when I buy one! You will NOT be disappointed.
I'm a business professional and I travel almost every week for my job. I've found most backpacks are either too bulky or not big enough, and most are incredibly uncomfortable when wearing one for an extended period of time. I've had my Just Porter backpack for a couple of weeks and took it on my recent business trip.
My first impression was like wow, I'm able to store everything that I need and I've still got plenty of room, and yet the bag doesn't look like there's too many things crammed inside.
My second impression was that it's the most comfortable bag that I've ever used. I often walk around airports and stand waiting for my flight and I barely noticed the bag on my back.
I'm really impressed with this backpack and the company. I wish I had discovered them years ago because then I wouldn't have spent money on backpacks that are now sitting unused in my basement.
Well, first of all, I've been following the Just Porter Instagram page for a while now, and I fell in love with these backpacks. Since I'm going to college in the fall, I figured it was time for a new backpack, and I chose Just Porter. I ordered the backpack and within a week, I received it along with a personal, handwritten note from the founder of the company. I cannot even describe my surprise and delight. Immediately I put one of the two stickers on the back of my car. I have already tried cramming my new school supplies in it, and they fit perfectly. Carrying the bag even with everything in it is still very comfortable. I've also taken it with me on several hikes with a few books, notebooks, water bottle, and a rock hammer; and again, everything fit comfortably and I carried it with ease and happiness. I could not be more pleased with this backpack, and I highly recommend it to anyone. I'm using it for both school and outdoor adventures and its quite perfect for both.
I've had the bag now for a couple weeks, and I can honestly say I'm super impressed with it. Right out of the box I opened it up and was amazed by all of the storage space. Like seriously, I've yet to fill the bag up and have trouble closing it. It's been the perfect bag for work and for travel. Five stars all the way!
Took the Hazen on a recent trip with me and it was by far one of the best backpacks I've ever travelled with. It was perfect for packing all my essentials, extra clothes, and so much more! It sat so comfortably on my back even with a ton of stuff in it. This backpack was definitely made for travelers or people just on the go! Highly recommend it for any adventure! Best backpack I've ever owned, hands down.
I've had this backpack for 2 years now, and I still use it everyday. It's the perfect bag for work, whether I'm walking, driving, or biking. I also use it for weekend trips as a carryon. This is, hands down, the best backpack I've ever had. Period.
Here are a few things I love about it:
- Zippers are the highest quality I've ever experienced. They never snag, and still run as smooth as butter.
- The material is amazingly resilient. Everyday use for 2 years, and not a single sign of wear. No scuffs, no tears.
- The main section unzips all the way down to the base, so when you lay it on it's back, you can completely open the bag like a suitcase. Perfect for clothing on a weekend trip.
- Excellent cushioning on the shoulders and against the back. ESPECIALLY at the point where the bag meets the top of your tailbone.
- Clips join with extreme ease, but don't accidentally come apart.
I could go on for another 10 minutes about why I love this bag. Bottom line: It's the best in class, the best I've ever used, and you've owe it to yourself to try it out.
Got the Hazen after loving my Pico and the overall experience with owning a Just Porter bag. I loved the Pico but wanted something a bit bigger that would better suit my needs. The Hazen is just what I was looking for: larger, more room, and more padding and support for that extra weight. The padding on the back of the back, as well as in the shoulder straps, is fantastic. With the same stuff as in my Pico, the Hazen seems to distribute the weight much better overall and it feels a lot less stressful on my back. Huge plus right there, as I usually carry a few books and a computer, charger, and all that stuff. Great design here.
Overall, I love the Hazen and especially love the magnetic buckle! Stoked for Hazen 2.0 one day.
I'm being one hunned honest !
This is by far the best backpack I have ever had. Durability wise, aesthetically, and functionally.
This bag was meant for the sojourner spirit, the creative, and the explorer.
It has so much space, perfect for 3-4 day journeys.
Seriously love the bag and love the vision behind it.
I had lots of bags before, but none of the compares to my Hazen Professional. Bought a Tumi a while ago, and it's now in the closet...couldn't compare with my JustPorter!
Everything in this bag is great. The bag was well designed and constructed using materials that will last for many years.
I love the Hazen Professional bag. The size is perfect I bring it with me everywhere I go!
I found the chest strap a little tight (I am 6۪3 I wear a 42L suit jacket), I never use the chest strap and the bag does not slip or shift at all.
I carry a 15" MacBook pro comfortably in the computer section.
There are just enough pockets so that everything has a place and the bag stays organized but not so many as to be annoying.
I carry it with me everywhere, work, on the road, traveling. Over a year later and it still looks as good as the first day I bought it.
Nice professional bag. Would recommend.
I can't believe such a great work backpack exists. Love to use it as a carry on backpack, and for work.
Well made back pack with enough room for everything I need to take with me to work. And it's good looking.
2nd time ordering this bag. First one for my son, the next for me. Son loves his, he's a graduate student and carries books, notes, laptop. I travel to Asia all the time. I like the fact that when I transfer in Korea and have to pull out both my laptop and iPad, it's really easy to get themout. Professional looking backpack but it is different than all the other bags out there. Good quality. Definately recommend.
Good looking, well made, beautifully thought out work backpack. Top notch!
From the neat front strap to the little pocket to store my passport, cables on the left, sleep stuff on the right, macbook air in the notebook slot, water bottle and toothbrush inside, I've never been better setup for a overseas flight!
Love the Hazen Professional backpack! It has so much space for heavy loads of books, its appearance is sleek and modern, and it has served to be quite durable.
Bought it for my high school son, he loves it.
Very well made. Extremely roomy and a fantastic looking bag!
Have had the Hazen for around two weeks, and I like it a lot for several reasons:
- The Hazen sits well on the back, and is comfortable to wear. It feels like it distributes the weight well.
- It is well-constructed and looks stylish (I've gotten a few compliments about it).
- The orange interior really helps find things easily.
- The laptop pocket is well-padded.
Things I'd change for Hazen 2.0: the interior pockets are good, but not great. I think the setup is better than some Osprey packs I've seen, but I tend to keep a lot of stuff in my bag, and having just a few more zippered mesh pockets would help keep everything well organized. As it is, I can fit the laptop charger, phone charger, display adapter, extra cables, and mouse pretty easily, as well as pens, eye care stuff, medication, and a few snacks.
Make the side pockets slightly larger. Or maybe have two sections.
Maybe have the middle section be slightly larger, or expandable, in case you have to carry several thick books.
Have the side clips be magnetic and not plastic.
Anyway, those are minor issues. Bottom line is I think Just Porter got a lot right about the bag, and I anticipate using it for quite some time... until the company comes out with something new. =)
The Hazen Professional backpack is hands down the best day-to-day backpack that I have ever owned. I recently decided to buy another Hazen Professional for use in the weekend so I didn't have to unpack the one I use for work. My original Hazen Professional was obtained from backing the Just Porter Kickstarter and I have used it every work day since receiving it. The bag still looks just as good as it did the day it arrived. It's a spacious, well organised bag with all the features I need.
It's a Christmas gift to myself but I can't wait to use it!!
I'm really loving this bag. It has compartments where I can fit anything that I need it's awesome nice and roomy I love that it has the water bottle holders. The only thing that I wish that you can do is put one strap on across your chest so you can just wear it over a shoulder instead of both. Love that it's a great work backpack.
Really high quality back pack love it
I travel a ton for work, and I needed a work backpack that was both professional and would handle being a good carry on backpack for work. Great overall design and back pack. Love that it has some personality rather than just straight black with black zippers. Easily opens and closes with one hand. The zippers never jam.
I received the bag a couple of weeks ago, and I love it as my work backpack. I needed something that would work well as a transition bag for my internships, and I think this is a really professional backpack for the work environment. Great bag, great company.
I use this type of backpack every day traveling and also for business. I switched from an old Ogio to the Hazen. First, the backpack is very TSA friendly -Easy to get to my laptop. It is also easy to stow your things when going through security. Place for my Kindle in the front, and cords hang out there. Laptop area is padded, and my computer stays safe. Fabric is good and so is construction. I've had cheap bags before, and they fall apart. But this bag is better. A little more expensive than I'd like, but an extra $15-25 bucks is a good investment. Buying cheap is too expensive. :-)
Seven Months Later... I bought this bag 7 months ago, and wanted to give it a real spin before leaving a review. First, this bag is built like a tank. Fabric still looks brand new. I spot clean it as needed and it cleans easily. Bottomline, a very profeesional backpack for work. Second, the bag can hold a lot of stuff, but it's never uncomfortable. Third, great company. I received a personal handwritten card from the owner after I bought it. Customer service like that means everything to me. Overall great bag.
Solid backpack for theprofessional who travels a lot. I did a ton of research in trying to find the best work backpack that wasa great carryonbackpack.I decided to switch from a messenger bag because I needed a backpack that isa little more professional.Great attention to detail and excellent craftsmanship. I could tell by looking at the stitching that it is wellmade.I think pound for pound, Just Porter makes one of the best backpacks on the market.
Nice bag. Recommend it if you are looking for a professional backpack or you need something as a carry on for your short travel trips.
Is a very professional backpack. A lot of compartments and space to carry chargers, cords, etc I have used a Tumi as my work backpack in the past, and I think this is just as good. Bravo.
I don't know what i would do without it! Really happy with the quality and the fact that it is a refined professional backpack that securely handles my laptop.
So far, this bag has been on 7 international trips. Pros: Great Carry on backpack, Easy to get to my cords, laptop, etc Well made. Cons: Add a key fob. Other than that, a very,very good bag.
I was turned onto your laptop backpacks from a friend who has one and he loves it. But he is a lot smaller (ironically a wide guy too, but much shorter). I should have done more research on its overall size (the sizes are on the website), but being 6ft tall and 280lbs the backpack is tiny on me and the straps don't extend out enough that I can even wear it around my shoulders.
I would normally just take it back, but since it was ordered online and it supports a good cause I guess I will try to find a more proportional person to give it too.
I love the Hazen Professional backpack! It's perfect for travel -- or just running from meeting to meeting in town. It's extremely well-made. Strong and durable. And it looks great! The perfect bag for everything I need!
I travel 20 weeks per year consulting and I was looking for a great work backpack. I carrymy laptop,Bose headphones, iPad,some folders,chargers, a notebook, a few file folders and a differentcables. Add in personal stuff like keys and wallet. This has been a great replacement for my old business backpack. The zippers work really well (never can be underestimated) and the bag is comfortable. Wish this bag had a 100% separate area for cords, but, I place them in a pouch for ease anyways. Fits under the plane seat for a carry on. Looks professional when I am on the road. Overall I'm happy with the bag.
Love it! For a professional backpack it's great and 1/3 the cost of a Tumi backpack.
Solid casual business backpack. Very satisfied with this bag. I use it all the time for business and as a carry on backpack. As goos as a Tumi backpack at a fraction of the price.
Well constructed and holds everything I need it to have when I am visiting clients. Like many women, I have found it hard to find professional backpacks for women. Much less, having to sort through all of the backpacks to figure out which are the best professional looking backpacks. This is a great bag. 5/5 for a work backpack.
Great work Backpack. I work in the remodeling business and needed a professional bag to carry paperwork and a laptop from the office to home meetings. Also, I keep it with me in the truck if Ineed it at a job site. Fits my Macbook Pro 15" and sits up on its own without falling over when I place it on the ground. Alarge-ishbackpack. Not huge, but not small. Slightly bigger than a Tumi backpack. Looks professional for meetings.
Hazen Professional bag purchased direct from Just Porter.
There is so much to like about this backpack and very little to dislike. Let's run down all the good points:
- well constructed
- compartments galore
- accommodates a 17" workhorse laptop (just)
- well organized layout
- nicely adjustable
- rides well, on one shoulder or two
- decent padding
- not punishing when weighty (for short/medium haul trips)
- swallows up considerable stuff while keeping it all tidy
Just a few minor negatives to mention:
- Grabby magnet on chest strap (enjoys bonding with other metal)
- Somewhat narrow feel of shoulder straps (they don't cut but I haven't long-hauled the bag yet)
- 1 slightly balky zipper (of the zipper horde present, just 1 catches momentarily)
None of the above are deal-breakers and if any were to turn into a significant problem, Just Porter has an excellent warranty.
All-in-all for me, a great bag and noble cause at a reasonable price. I'm looking forward to seeing how this backpack withstands the test of time.
5 stars. Recommended
Mind blowing? No. But very very good professional laptop backpack. I've owned some expensive business backpacks in the past. And they were all very nice. Now, this backpack doesn't have all the flash of a $300 backpack. But, I can say that the quality is just as good. The fabric looks to be the same as Tumi, and the stitching is much better than a normal back. Great value for the quality.
First off, let me start by saying I am a huge critic and enthusiast of backpacks and any type of extra storage space. As a photographer, i'm always trying to look for the latest and most comfortable bags, but I want them to be professional backpacks as well, not to mention able to handle versatile, gear. I stumbled upon the Just Porter Hazen through Instagram. I was just browsing and saw the pack and immediately fell in love with it. The design is great for everday use, being a student i could utilize it for my school work, and it looked like it had enough room to fit most of my gear while still looking like an everyday pack. Walking through the streets of San Antonio carrying a Think Tank Streetwalker Pro isn't exactly a discrete pack. I purchased some Domke camera inserts for both my Canon 5DMK3 and my Tamron 70-200. They fit inside the Hazen Pro and still have plenty of room to put other supplies. The construction is great and the material feels sturdy and able to withstand multiple enviroments (i took it hiking up some mountains in El Paso). I really enjoy this pack and design is easy on the eye. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an everday use pack, i already have to some of my coworkers.
My old professional backpack was going on 30 years old. My new Hazen is a fantastic replacement!
I have used aVictorianoxpack for a couple ofyears for my work backpack and traveled everywhere with it. But, with daily use it was starting to show wear and tear. I cam across Just Porter and bought their Hazen professional backpack. Well designed, and a ton of storage. Great carry on backpack, and super easy to get through TSA. I love the layout and the orange fabric which allows me to see what's inside fairly easily. I think this is a great bag and glad I made the investment.
A great carry-on bag. Comparing this backpacks to others, it handles my laptop and electronic gadgets. I can pack a lot without the bag feeling bulky and the organization is well designed. Great bag for the price.
It's perfect for grad school.
First, this bag is one of the most professional looking backpacks I've found. I was so used to a straight black backpack that it was boring. I had never heard of Just Porter before, but I was traveling, on a recent flight and saw this backpack and ask the man what kind of backpack he had. Long story short, he talked about the company and said he loved the bag. I decided to check it out. I'm glad I did. I travel a ton, and this is a great carry on backpack. It holds enough of both my personal and work stuff. The materials inside and out is durable, yet soft. Not cheap at all. And the zipper work. Quality is 5 stars. I also found out that when you buy a backpack they give a backpack to a child in need. That's a company with ethics. Highly recommend.
Update: Best work backpack I've owned, and I've owned a lot. Listen, I usually don't review products, but overall Just Porter has been great. Their customer service is some of the best I've seen. The bag is really well made, and I can see why people like it. I can't recommend this bag and company enough. People have remarked about the bag and complimented me as well in coffee shops and in the office. In fact, I convinced my co-worker to get one as well. Great Job Just Porter!
Great commuter backpack and work backpck. Thumbs up!
Excellent, well made professional backpack. Nice and roomy and I like the divided compartments in this pack. Love the padded back with the firm padding. Happy with my purchase. Good job!
I have had this backpack almost a year from Just Porter's kickstarterand I love it. Roomy and has side pockets to carry my water bottles. I love the front vertical zipper when I am traveling through airport security. It is a great carry on bag, and fits below my seat if need be. I have an old school laptop from work, and it fits it (16" laptop). Very professional looking backpack that works well when visiting clients. Fabric seems nicer than some other bags I've checkout like Samsonite, and Tumi. Straps are comfortable. After a year of almost brand new. I've never had a backpack (professional or otherwise) hold up so well. Great bag. And as a plus, it works awesome as a an overnight travel bag as a carry on backpack. bonus.
I'msurprised by how much you can fit in this pack.The materials used in this bag are nice similar to more expensive professional backpacks. I travel all the time for work, and the front vertical zipperwill save you time going through security. The shoulder straps are comfortable. Cool feature was the loops around the adjustment strap. You can tell it was made by someone who know what they are doing.Sturdy handle on the top of the bag.
I am a professional that lives in the city, and I take the El train everyday. Solid professional backpack that is well made and comfortable. I like that it's large enough ot handle all of my charger, cord, etc and yet be a very professional backpack at the same time. I was introduced to the bag from a co-worker who participated in their Kickstarter. He loves using it as his work backpack and a carry on for travel too.
Great materials, very good design. I'm really happy with the overall design of the bag. I love that I can fit , my iPad in the front pocket and stay organized. Definitely the best work backpack I have owned. I have used it a couple of times as a carry on backpack for travel. It worked well.
Likea lot of people, I travel for business and I had a hard time finding professional backpacks for women. My goal is simple: I try to make it in and out of the airplanes and airports with my laptop. I've tried bags like Samsonite, Tumi, etc... I always felt either it was too many or too little of features. I found Just Porter and decided to order up a bag and give it a try as my work backpack. I'm glad I did. It's a company who's quality stands by itself. It's nice to see a company give the big boys a run for their money. The owner Chris gave me some advice about how to use the front pocket for TSA security (throw your wallet, phone and keys in there before x-ray). I'm pro level on travelling and this bag makes my TSA line faster. Just a quick thanks to Chris for the nice note he sent with my Bag. Thanks so much for creating a great professional backpack.
A surprising 5 stars from a Kickstarter. Bought this bag on Kickstarter. Just Porter took a long time to deliver their product, and they kept talking about making sure it was high quality. Well, after backing >25 projects, Just Porter really delivered. Great bag, Great attention to detail. Happy to be a backer! Great job guys!
Returned it, need longer straps. I'm a larger guy and I need longer straps. Well made backpack.
Really well done professional backpack! It's hard to find a really nice professional laptop backpack, and I have to say that Just Porter did a nice job.
