    Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    This is a great bag for academic students and professionals. I'm a professor so I carry a lot of different things on a daily basis including files, books, a laptop, etc. There are ample compartments and the straps are easy to operate.

    The only slight flaw is that the compartment for the thermos is a tad too small and the strap buckle sometimes gets in the way of my thermos housed there.

    Otherwise, I would recommend this bag to everyone.

    Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    So...I own a few Timbuk2 bags and love them! My TSA bag finally gave out and decided to purchase this bag in carbon twill- nice!!very clean profile-also like the fuzzy orange lining in the computer area and the second tablet pocket. Computer fit well- Like the slim profile. Front pockets too short- broke 2 nails today going in and out of the front pockets briskly- not good.. Slider for luggage handle is super tight-it's not practical, maybe a zipper?? Water bottle area is used for my glasses, way to small. Bag could use a sturdier bottom structure to stand up, I realize its a messenger but the "un"structure is a slight hindrance for frequent flyer travel. Front slide pocket A+ Good strap, comfy. Definitely a keeper and stylish but... think I'm going to use this for day trip travel and not again for airline- this is my 3rd airline trip with this bag and I'm just not sold-I'm trying to love it but I find myself frustrated using it-also I'm slow with the buckles, not loving them but they look and feel nice. I want this bag to work for me so I'm sending out positive vibes for the flight home tomorrow- and lastly, the design although clean is masculine. Can your designers make a TSA compliant bag that has a more feminine shape/details and geared towards a metro,female,frequent traveler? I'm glad to assist :)

    Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    I love my bag. I use it around my work (which requires a lot of walking) and it really gets the job done. It looks nice, has a lot of compartments (I am still finding new ones) is durable and very quality. I tend to pack mine as full as it can be and for that reason it can be bulky and bump into things, but it is otherwise very lightweight and reasonable. I am so glad I made this purchase. 5 stars!

    Shoulder Strap is A Deal Breaker

    Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    So, the bottom line here is that the shoulder strap system is a total deal breaker for me. I am 5'6" and the "loop" style strap on this bag just does not get small enough for messenger carry without a lot of fiddling. Once I did get the strap comfortable for a messenger carry I ran into two other issues: the adjustment buckle was now resting on my sternum (very uncomfortable) and when I moved from messenger carry to a simple one shoulder carry, the strap pad was no longer ON my shoulder, and couldn't be moved because the adjustment buckle is in the middle of the strap, not affixed to the side of the bag like other Timbuk2 messengers.

    The quick adjust buckle system on older Timbuk2 bags is great, really great, when it's attached to the side of the bag. It allows you to make the shoulder strap as short or as long as you like, while still being able to slide the strap pad into position. But the strap on this bag has not one, but two adjustment systems for the single looped strap, and when you loop a strap like this there is a finite limit to how small you can make the strap, and that doesn't work for shorter folks like me.

    The rest of the bag is very nice, but the quality doesn't seem up to what I have come to expect in the 18 years I've been buying Timbuk2 bags (I got my first when I was 17, and still have and use it!), and this is the first one I've ever returned for any reason.

    So, some pros: tons of storage pockets, most that are very well thought out. I picked this bag because it still uses the older, more complex internal front storage pocket that was removed from the new 2014 Classic Messenger. The fold flat system for airport travel is well done, and doesn't increase the bulk of the bag.

    Some cons: The fabric is very soft, which feels great, but means that the bag is really floppy, it won't stand upright on it's own unless you pack the bottom with clothing. The synch straps don't stay tight as many others have noted, and the "quiet" buckles are very awkward to use. You can't get to the laptop compartment except from the rear of the bag, unlike the D-LUX which allows both inside and rear access.

    I ended up returning this bag and purchasing a (very unfortunately) now discontinued D-LUX Messenger Laptop, which corrects EVERY SINGLE ISSUE I've noted here. It is pretty much the perfect laptop messenger for me, and I'm super sad that it's not still made.

    Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    Using it daily and like it. This is my second Timbuk2 bag.

    The water bottle sleeve is too small. It needs to be deeper. I usually carry a metal, 16 oz bottle and it falls out of the sleeve too easily.

    The hooks on the front of the bag are awkward and diffcult to clip quickly. I'd prefer to have the plastic snaps on previous bags.

        Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        I'm really glad I got this bag. After reading reviews, I was a little apprehensive about ordering due to negative comments about the two buckles that hold the flap closed. I've owned this bag for over a month and I haven't had any problems with them coming loose. The charger pocket in the bottom of the bag is really convenient and keeps the wires out of the main compartment. I also like the buckle on the strap more than the one on my 2014 Classic Messenger (I like the strap on that one too!). Overall, I'm really happy with the quality and comfort of my purchase. If I were to buy again, I would choose a material other than felt because it seems to attract pet hair more.

          Comments about Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

          This is a great product. I previously purchased the medium sized version that has the velcro closing mechanism. This version is much nicer in several ways. The unit is quite a lot smaller, but fits everything. This is really important when you're moving around the airport, finding a seat at Starbucks, etc. I never want for more space. I would recommend getting the smallest unit that will fit your laptop or other equipment. The other advantage is the closure mechanism. My previous unit was really noisy, every time I opened it. The closure mechanism on this unit is much nicer, and easy to use. Overall I am very satisfied.
