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 2014:

The bag is short from being amazing. It does the job with great ease, and don't get me wrong, this bag is great. Great durability, looks, etc. Though I wish the strap were a bit more comfortable, as the bag is only slung across your left shoulder (Right for those lefties out there), making it really uncomfortable after prolonged usage when carrying a lot of supplies. All in all, it is a great bag with just a minor flaw.

Excelent Choice of Messenger Bag

By Jonathan

Pros

  • Good Strap Length
  • High Quality
  • Roomy 

Cons

  • Heavy / bulky 

Best Uses

  • Commuting
  • Computer
  • School

Comments about Classic Messenger Bag 2014:

First of all, this bag is huge! I can fit my 15 inch laptop, two large math books, a 2.5 inch binder, two spiral bound notebooks, and still have room for a thermos, snacks, and the little things. The waterproof TPU liner is perfect for living in the Pacific Northwest. Everyhting is on the inside and stays dry. It is bulky and not to light but its a 28 liter shoulder bag; those are to be expected. The cam buckle has worked well for mw even with heavier loads. The organiver pockets in the front and inside of the bag tend to bulk up even if you don't have that many things in them so you do need to watch that. I have 3 snack bars, a bag of almonds, wallet, keys, iPod and a graphing calculator and it works ok. GET THE BAG!

      This the second Classic Messenger Bag 2014 by Timbuk2 that I have purchased and the first one was for my Daughter. She never used it so I gave it to my Fiancé. She usually over packs it. That drives me crazy. Haven't used the bag yet but have a flight next weekend I will use it then.

        Comments about Classic Messenger Bag 2014:

        This bag is perfect. My tablet fits nicely in the back pocket while other papers and books go toward the front. My cell phone is safe in the Napoleon Pocket. And I really can't wait to take this bag to the Caribbean on our cruise. It will carry all the purchases from the shops we visit, hanging comfortably on my back slung over my shoulder, and it won't matter if it's raining. This bag meets my everyday needs.

        • Delivery

        Comments about Classic Messenger Bag 2014:

        I work for a sandwich shop, and one of our specialties is a really fast delivery. I think Timbuk2 was on point with their strap adjustment design for this model. Although, sometimes the shoulder pad gets flipped, and requires a few extra seconds to resolve the problem, I haven't had any real issues with the bag over 40+ hours of work, and about 100+ deliveries. Cross the body strap really adds a nice touch for that extra stability when you're going faster than 20mph dashing down the road, and the waterproof liner ensures you can abuse it under any weather. I'd say this was one of my best investments I've made this year!

                Comments about Classic Messenger Bag 2014:

                The only problem I have with this bag is that my water bottle will not go into the internal water bottle holders. The water bottle holders are large enough, but I have a glass bottle with a silicone coating and the silicone sticks to the material used for the water bottle holder. It is so difficult to get in and out I usually just put the water bottle in the large compartment instead. This is a slight inconvenience, but overall I love the bag. I use it to carry my computer to work and school.
