    Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    This is my third Timbuk2 bag and shows how Timbuk2 continually improves its products. I needed a midsize bag that was smaller than a large Commute (6 years old) yet larger than a small messenger (3 years old). The medium Command fits nicely for what I need (if not a little too big). What surprises me most about the Command is that, while heavier than my small messenger, it feels lighter when carrying the bag even loaded with the same contents.

    Transitioning to the Command from the messenger is entertaining at times; I know I put everything in the bag, but with so many pockets, trying to remember which particular pocket makes me pause.

      This is the second bag I ordered because I lived the first one so much! I know I could have recycled the old bag but I wanted all the same functionality with a newer look. Now I have two bags to use depending on my mood :)

      Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      I appreciated the attention to detail as I researched the Command case, and even more when it arrived (very quickly, I might add). I just returned from my first trip and without a doubt this case made airport security so much easier! I have had a TSA compliant case before, but having the zip opening at the bottom so you can simply pick the case up by the handle as it comes through the scanner is pure genius. I also like the adjustability of the strap - from short enough to carry by the handle without dragging to cross-body length. The only possible improvements I could suggest would be a small zip pocket on the outside of the front flap - a place to put your ID heading into security, etc. The Napoleon pocket is a great idea and very handy, but tucked far enough underneath so harder to stash the ID on the fly. Also perhaps a contoured shoulder pad for better stability when carried on the shoulder. Very happy with this purchase and I get the feeling it will be very durable but with only one trip so far, time will tell.

        Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        This is the bag I dreamed of for my camera equipment years ago (but better). I use this primarily for going to work but the bag works better than a backpack and looks professional as well. I mentioned camera equipment because I have always looked for the best way to carry camera equipment anywhere but not have it look like a camera bag. It allows me to never have to put the bag down while fiddling with the equipment. A padded insert can be purchased for the messenger bag for camera equipment. I am very pleased with my purchase.

          Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

          I had an old laptop bag fail and wanted something durable and stylish to carry around my MacBook Pro 13. I bought the small version of this bag in twill, and it is just right for me. I get many compliments on the look, and the material and build is so rugged that it will certainly last a long time.

          I use the bag to carry my laptop, charger, phone, tablet, and notebook to client meetings around town and this bag handles it all with comfort. I wasn't sure about the odd hooks to secure the front flap, but that turns out to be a great feature -- secure yet easy to unhook. I'd buy this bag again in a heartbeat.

          I like to travel lean and mean so size is just right, but if you like to carry lots of other stuff with your laptop this isn't the bag for you. I wouldn't want to fit, say, a hardback book in there along with my electronics. Or a 3-ring binder.

            I've been using the bag for about a month now, and only continue to like it more. It's a great size for a graduate student - it holds my labptop (Lenovo Yoga 13), tablet (Nexus 7, but any 9" would fit as well) several books, an umbrella, my coffee thermos, and any cables I'll need. I was a little dismayed at first as the water bottle pocket was a bit snug, and the buckles were difficult to use; over use, however, everything has stretched and is now usable. I think it also looks great!

            Using this mainly for business travel and moving from a backpack from an O brand. I miss a few of the varied-size pockets that the O had, especially a hard, protected area for sunglasses, but I'm getting used to the Command. I like the size and styling versus the backpack. The clasps on the Command aren't really that bad, but they have come undone during standard use.

            Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

            I already own a Control laptop bag but was looking for something larger to take on extended trips - I'm not a big fan of carrying a bunch of stuff with me but when you're gone for more than a couple of days it becomes necessary. I first ordered the Medium size of this bag and felt like it was not really enough of a difference from my existing bag, so I exchanged for the Large. The Large is a monster, plenty of room inside which came in very handy during a recent business trip to Georgia and Virginia. I carried an MB Air, grid-it panel w/assorted cables/chargers, an LG G.Pad 8.3 GPE tablet, light jacket, two folders with airplane work and reading, and a couple of promotional items to give away on my trip. Room to spare. Frankly this bag is a little too big for my use cases and I do wish there had been a good midpoint between the M and L sizes. Actually after having traveled with the L if I had the option I'd probably swap again for the M. The laptop pocket, of course sized for a 17" machine, was far too big for my MB Air and this caused the bag to wrap around me oddly when worn off the shoulder.

            However none of this should be taken as criticism of the bag itself, which like all Timbuk2 products I have owned (6 pieces including rollaboard luggage) is extremely well-made, durable, and outfitted with useful pockets and stashes. I particularly like the bottom pocket for a laptop charger on this bag. All in all I am happy with my purchase (and got a great deal during an online sale event) and definitely recommend you try this one out if you're at all interested.

            Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

            Finally, I have found the right bag to carry. I have gone between backpacks and briefcases pulling out computers, trying to figure out where to stash cords, opening flaps to find that annoying cellphone. I like the TSA friendly approach to travel and I like the "wool coat" look of the material on the flap, the bag I got was not a plain nylon outer material but rather a wool or synthetic cloth that looks like a gray wool coat. I have received numerous compliments on the look of the bag that it is unusual and attractive crossing the bridge between briefcase, backpack, and messenger. I do high level business consulting so walk into meeting rooms with shiny shoe suits as well as jean clad tech types. All of them like the bag!
