    Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    I LOVE the silencers. At first I just thought they'd be super handy if I was in a meeting or in a quiet place like a waiting room or a movie. HOWEVER, the best use of them for me is as sweater savers. LOL. I live in Vancouver, BC and I love to wear sweaters in the cooler weather but I hate it when my sweaters catch on the velcro of my jackets or my purses and bags. Velcro and sweaters do not mix. I can slap on the silencers on this bag and not worry at all about ruining my sweaters or catching my scarves in it.

    The only thing I don't love about this bag is the buckles. They're not exactly buckles. I guess they're hook closures. They just take a little too long to do up and undo. I really wish they were the standard quick release plastic buckles instead.

    I also like the light reflective strips on the front of the bag. All in all I have purchased another fabulous Timbuk2 bag and am very, very happy with it.

      Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      I use my Command mainly for commuting to work. I wanted something that was roomy enough to take just the basics I needed for the day at work. I chose the Command because it seemed like the perfect laptop carrier. I use a 13" Macbook Pro Retina and an IPad Air. They both fit comfortably in the dedicated compartment. Chargers and adaptors fit in the extra pockets through out the bag. The side water bottle compartment doubles for my umbrella holder. I am able to fit a small book and a sack lunch in the main compartment with ease. The one detail that really stands out is the adjustable strap latch. I did not think this was a selling point at the time of purchase but I really see its benefit now that I am using the bag. Now that its winter here in Chicago and the bulky winter coats and hats do not get in the way. I pull back the strap adjuster and with ease I can take the bag off and on with out knocking my cap or hat off. One last thing, water resistant! The water just beads up and rolls off! I am kind of minimalistic with what I carry and I feel I finally found the right bag. However, if you carry a ton of stuff you may want to get this in a medium or large size.

        Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        I needed a bag for work to carry a notebook, iPad, laptop and files. I'm rarely in the office and mostly running to other locations for meetings. My old messenger bag was too small and uncomfortable. After extensive research I decided on this one and was not disappointed. It has ample room for everything I need as well as lots of smaller pockets. I also have a small purse that I can fit inside so I only have to carry one bag if I want. I simply love how easy it is to throw everything I need inside, sling it over my shoulder, and run off to my next meeting. It is very comfortable also. My only suggestions for improvement would be to add additional color options (more feminine/stylish) and a larger water bottle holder (perhaps one on the inside). But I'd definitely recommend!!!

        Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        a 15inch computer DOES fit... but not in the TSA approved pouch in the small. this was disappointing, but don't want a medium b/c the bag would be so huge it'd wrap around my body. i like the pocket for the cords the best. the straps suck... make it like the rest of the bags. Also the shoulder strap sucks. It's not very thick or comfortable. I had a snoop camera bag and that shoulder strap is amazing! But a thicker strap on it - computers can be heavy.

        Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        This is really an awesome bag, and I bought it after becoming a web developer and going to my first conference--where I learned the Timbuk 2 bag is a well-known commodity. The annoying things are small. If you don't hook the bag, the dangling hooks clang. So, that's kind of annoying. I need some kind of cushion-y thing around the strap to make my neck happy. So, I lowered the strap and hooked it around my left shoulder, but then that bulky clip is on my shoulder, making it sore. That said, I LOVE every other design feature. I didn't think my big water bottle would fit. It did. I love the bricks pocket at the bottom of the bag. I love that compartment separators are sometimes a "hidden" zippered pocket. I love the phone pocket that doesn't make me open the bag to get at it. I went through four security TSA systems with the bag, and it was so easy. Loved it. I'm super happy with this bag, and I think I can get the strap problem sorted out.

        Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        This bag is great bag! i originally got this for my macbook 13in and it was great! With room to spare in the laptop compartment. I love this bag which i primarily use for school. It has gotten a little small with all my materials stuffed inside(pens,pencils,calculator, one school book, a binder, a notebook, sunglass case, Ipad mini, and now my new macbook pro 15in which fits snuggly in there not too tight! This is amazing considering I have the small version of this bag! I chose the smaller bag because I didn't want a bag that was too bulky I feel like this size is just right for school and perfect for a day trip or carry on for planes. If you are thinking about getting this beg i would definitely recommend it to anyone!

          I found Timbuk2 on the net through a forum I was looking at. I was holidaying in the USA so spoke to customer relations who arranged the bag to be couriered to my hotel. In short I had great service and the bag is excellent. It's hard wearing, a really comfortable strap, and it copes with all the gear I put in it. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Timbuk2.

            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.
