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.

plenty of room

By aowride

Comments about Classic Messenger Bag 2014:

My son is in 7th grade and he shares a locker. A small locker. I initially bought this in medium, but because my son never uses a locker I had to get the large. Its perfect! I like the way it looks but more importantly he likes it. I got it in the pacific/night blue and it looks great.

The design suits my needs almost perfectly. The handle could be a bit more comfortable, but other than that it's just what I needed.

    Comments about Classic Messenger Bag 2014:

    I like the slide in pocket in front for my cell phone. Easy to get to, sure beats having to open whole bag to dig it out. My old classic mess bag was easier to use though. It had permanently attached cross strap and attachment clip on strap and the cross strap was wider! I commute by bicycle and don`t care to ever remove this strap. I`m worried the velcro attachment on the new bag will fatigue and wear out. Also, getting into and closing the old model was easier because the clips were on the outside of the flap and you could quickly grab the strap and open/close. The new model does look nicer with the clips underneath the flap, but harder to use. Material used is still 1st class and it looks great!!

    Of my 4 TB2 bags, this one is best looking fabric (carbon full-cycle twill) and most thoughtful design. I miss some of the earlier organizer slots but this is really an excellent everyday carry what you need bag.

      This is the second classic messenger I purchase from Timbuk2.

      I had one custom made a few years ago and it's still rocking. It's been with me all over the world - Maldives, sailing the Atlantic, Sweden Scotland, Ireland, Spain, France... etc..
      My brother liked it so much that I offered him one for his birthday.
      Hope he like's it as much as I like mine.

      Comments about Classic Messenger Bag 2014:

      I use this for my books everyday for school. My laptop fits comfortably and securely in the laptop slot. I like how organized the inside of the bag is, and how well it fits my stuff.

      I have two concerns. It is hard to get the bag over my head sometimes - maybe it's because I have a long torso and ride crowded buses. My other concern is that the back of the bag wears very quickly - this fabric pills much like a sweater. I like how the front looks so I'm gonna keep it, but this is a concern in terms of how attractive the bag is.

            Comments about Classic Messenger Bag 2014:

            I was getting ready to go on my honeymoon and needed a messenger bag that could hold my DSLR, iPad, and several other items that I would need on a daily basis while traveling. After looking at several messenger bags for weeks I kept coming back to Timbuk2 and all their great reviews.

            With the decent prices and the amount of space in these bags I decided to give it a go. I could not be happier. Roaming around Europe with all my essentials secured and comfortable, this bag did the trick. After weeks of taking a beating in several countries it still looks amazing. Timbuk2 is a quality product and I will recommend it to all my friends.

            Had to get rid of my previous Timbuk2 Classic of 8+ years. I am joining the corporate workforce and needed to get a bag with a laptop sleeve. I am surprised at how well my Macbook Air 13 in. fits in this laptop slot! I opted for the small bag and it's a little on the small side but its Timbuk2! Gonna last forever!
