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 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.

                Comments about Classic Messenger Bag 2014:

                This will be my third messenger bag just over twenty years. Almost ten years of daily commuting and routine weekend trips finally wore out my waterproof lining. That and the design of "in-bag" water bottle management may be the greatest change ever...carabiner on the outside of the bag with 1 water bottle and 1 coffee thermos was getting old. Thank you for an ever smarter design and a product that lasts. I can't wait to try out the not-so-new features!

                  I use this bag every day and it is more than a woman's "handbag". It gets packed up every morning with all the usual items plus all of my medications, durable medical equipment and medical supplies I need throughout the day. It is a very functional bag yet eye catching too...am always asked where I got the bag. I tell the person about Timbuk2 and that they are definitely missing out if they don't have at least one!!!

                  At first I was doubt about the size s and m. I'd like my mac 13" to fit with this and I decided to go with s. Indeed, it's great to put my 13" mac pro and still have a little space. I'd say it can store many stuff and overall is great.
                  One thing I don't like is the colour. I mean for classic messenger, there is really no colour I perfectly want, comparing to the previous year.
