Thoughts on the Buzz (my first TB bag)
I've been looking at TB bags for awhile now and just bought my first - a used Buzz. I've been wanting to replace my worn-out single strap bag for a couple of years now (the manufacturer no longer exists). I wanted something fairly sleek and minimal - I'm not one for a lot of compartments and pockets.
The Buzz comes very close to what I wanted - I love the workmanship and all the little details down to the corner for holding a laptop in place. Capacity-wise this bag fits all I need for a day as a grad student. However, I still have a few issues with it - namely the overall size of the bag and my ability to comfortably wear it. I'm 5' and I cannot adjust the strap tight enough to carry the pack comfortably high on my back - I've got the strap shortened as much as it will go and it still bangs on my tailbone. I realized being short there are some limits with how small you can make a sling pack and still be able to carry things like a laptop, and the Buzz is closer to anything I've found in a long time fit-wise.
I will be curious to see if TB makes a slightly smaller version of the Buzz for the 11" Air or designs a second way to shorten the cross strap.
