What's this all about?

25 years of messenger expertise bring you our updated Classic Messenger Bag. Designed in San Francisco with decades of user testing and consumer feedback in mind, our updated Classic Messenger features a new refined look, updated fit, and smarter organization. A new shoulder strap features a curved airmesh strap pad for increased comfort, finer webbing, and Timbuk2's new Double-Loop CAM buckle that adjusts quickly and eliminates dangling straps. A new low profile grab strap makes this messenger easier to grab and go and SR buckles are partially concealed behind the messenger flap for a more refined but just as secure closure. Inside, the waterproof TPU liner and corner wings keep water out, and the internal water bottle pocket keeps water in. Distributed internal pockets and organization balances the weight of your carry. It's a classic reborn and ready to be worn for another quarter century.

Comments about Classic Messenger Bag:

I use this bag for work computer and school books so it had to be big enough for all of my stuff. While it is definintely big enough it's quite bulky for my size (I'm a fairly small person). I've finally gotten used to slipping it over my head and not having it cut into my neck, but that took a little playing around.

I will be using this while I travel too and I expect that the big portion of my bag will work great for the extra travel things I'll be carrying too. I'm also interested to see how it works when I bike to work. It may be just a bit too heavy to use for my ride as any extra weight going up the "big hill" is too much weight.

All in all, I'm happy with this bag and I know I'll be using this for years.

Comments about Classic Messenger Bag:

This is a great bag! I primarily use it for weekend or extended trips. It can fit a ton of stuff. It easily fit three days of clothes plus a pair of shoes and still had room for more! The downside for me is that it is too big for typical day to day use. Straps and rings on the outside are great for hooking loose cleats or a nalgene onto. I dislike that the water bottle straps on the inside are not stretchy enough for my nalgene, but I love the fact that they are there! I personally wish it had more organization features, but with this style of bag it is hard to have organization. Timbuk2 did great with this bag. It is large, durable, and really a beaute!

    Comments about Classic Messenger Bag:

    I use this bag primarily to truck to a spinning class and this bag holds it all....shoes, towel, water bottles, coffee cup, wallet and extras.

    I love the velcro and adjustable straps. I cans inch the bag if I'm not carrying a lot and absolutely stuff the bag if necessary.

    The only thing I dont like is that the cam buckle doesn't seem to have much bite and it has come open several times.

    Overall, this is a great bag that has taken front and center over other bags.

      Comments about Classic Messenger Bag:

      Gave the small messenger bag as a Christmas gift to my wife. She used it for day trips while overseas during Christmas and New Year's. Much more useful than a purse, comfortable to carry, lightweight, roomy, and stylish. I would highly recommend this messenger bag.

          Comments about Classic Messenger Bag:

          This is bag number 3 of this style that lives in my household. We love the upgrades that the 2014 classic has! This on is for my college student who uses his bags for just about everything. Whether it's a weekend trip home or a plane ride across the country or even commuting by bike, he uses this bag more then any other. It seems to take the abuse and keeps on going. Oh, and it rains here a lot, so it's nice to have a bag that is reliably dry inside. Only one downside we have noticed in the normal use is that the coated canvas fabrics (they have a shiney plastic sheen to them) don't seem to hold up quite as well as nylon or regular canvas. I think he is going to send his old one back and see about replacement. He seems to like having two of these to use.

            Our 10 yr. old grandson initially thought the bag was too big for him but was thrilled when "everything fit". He was so pleased that there were compartments for the supplies he carries to art classes. The bag has softened up a bit with all the use.
