    Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag 2014:

    When I had my second kid I had a rough time finding a diaper bag big enough, and functional enough for all the things I wanted to have on hand.

    This bag has become my dream diaper bag. I got a size large, and it is pretty large. But I have absolutely everything I need, plus the other stuff that inevitably ends up in there.

    Down the road I can use it as an overnight bag. Win, win!

    Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag 2014:

    Great overall bag, but the ripping sound of velcro is annoying. I had to buy the velcro silencers, which I think should be included with every bag. Other than my issue with the velcro, this messenger bag is solid. The TSA features are great, holds my 13 inch MacBook Pro, IPad mini with power cords. The main pockets holds my travel shaving/toiletry kit, a complete change of clothes, (jeans, shirt, boxers, socks). Yep, I have serious packing skills. Oh yeah, it also holds my headphones and snacks. This bag also has the right amount of interior pockets for all my miscellaneous stuff. This small messenger bag fits my needs perfectly.

        I used as a personal bag with a small 16 inch spinner carry on on a 3 day trip to NYC. Great to navigate the airport with the spinner bag. Then, once in NYC, it was perfect to use in the subway and walking around the City (which required some rain gear on a wet day)

        Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag 2014:

        I owned a Tumi bag for years then switched to a Northface backpack when I started traveling more. Fast forward 5 more years and suits/sportcoats are the norm when traveling and a backpack is not stylish and wears on suit material.

        My wife bought a T2 bag and I liked the overall look and feel of the product. I would have loved to customize my bag but could not justify the $$$$$$ (make it 15% less $ and I would have done it).

        I like the bag but find there are 3 problems:
        1. Having the Laptop compartment on the back of the bag means there is a large flat surface that rides against my body when I carry the bag. It would be nice to have more padding or more contour. It feels like I have an 8' 2x4 riding on my hip when I carry the bag
        2. More compartments! Don't the designers use laptops? Dell power supplies are junk but guess what, 90% of business travelers use them and the provided compartments barely fit the PS and cords.
        3. Take the Velcro off the front of the bag. Having the unbuckle and un-Velcro the bag is a major PITA. I like the buckles but can't stand having to pull bag the glue-like Velcro 5-6 times a day when I am in and out of my bag.

        Overall it is a welcome upgrade from a backpack for business travel. I will still keep my NF Surge backpack for when I travel for personal reasons.

        The computer sleeve touches the ground when bag on floor. It should be suspended. The zipper tag broke off in week 3. Locating the computer on the backside of bag has pros and cons. Good for TSA not comfortable against back. I hope you bring back the molded back of the pack for comfort and security. Also, this bag should have the waist strap option.

        Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag 2014:

        This bag was purchased in an effort to find a smaller 14" laptop (ThinkPad T430s) messenger that would still hold my other daily walk+bus commute items (lunch, rain coat, coffee, etc). To that end, I've been pretty satisfied. The inner netting pockets work fine for holding the AC adapter, and the coffee mug stays put in the bottle holder.

        I'm a big fan of small organizer pockets, and there's a fair number of them...but your items must be flat. The big barrier for calling this a great airplane bag is lack of a 'dump pocket' for going through security - an easily accessible medium-sized exterior pocket to stow wallet, watch, keys, etc. Granted, with Timbuk2's trademark messenger design that's difficult to implement, but it's none-the-less a downside compared to other bags.

        Finally, one minor improvement would be some elastic band to secure the flailing tail from the flap clip straps. If walking through a quiet area - the constant THWAP (imagine comic book lettering here) with every step can be a bit annoying.

        There's no perfect bag, so while there's improvements that could be made, I'd still buy this bag again. It's compact, yet still roomy enough to handle a day's typical items. And a solid looking design!

        I use this for my personal 13-in macbook (small bag). I don't use it everyday but travel with it for work trips and personal travel. It has plenty of room for a large hardback, iPad, small cable bag, plus misc wallets, checkbooks, mobile phones,iPod, headphones, pens, etc. The padded handle is well made and better than earlier Timbuk2 bags. Standard size folders fit all in the divider at the back of the main compartment.

          I carry my laptop back and forth to the office in this bag. The strap is perfect. I also use the carry handle when putting the bag in and out of the car. I really like the outside compartments (one hidden zip and the other just on the backside of the bag where I can easily get access to my badge and parking ticket quickly. Love this bag!

          The perfect diaper bag

          • Good Strap Length
          • Nice Amount Of Pockets
          • Spacious

          Cons

          • Bottle Holder
          • Innerouter Bottle Holder

          Best Uses

          • Diaper bag

          Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag 2014:

          I have two toddlers and had been looking for the perfect diaper bag. My husband wanted the exact same bag for Christmas and after viewing the specs, I realized I wanted the same bag for Christmas. I've used it for 5 months now and still love it and recommend it to all moms!
          PROS:
          - hands-free!! Backpacks are great but in order to grab something out of the bag, I would have to put my child down and dig deep. With this, I can still carry my child but have easy access to most things: wallets, Keys, phone, water bottle.
          - Spacious but not cumbersome: I've tried many kinds of diaper bags. Backpacks were too deep, other spacious bags were almost like duffle bags - but this bag is very stream lined and everything is easy to locate. It's big enough though that I can carry lunches for everyone, drinks for everyone (including myself) and in the winter time - all the extra layers of clothing like coats.
          - multi-functional: When I return to the office life, I won't have to change bags. Not that my husband minds, but it's gender neutral. This bag makes traveling through airports a breeze with kids.
          -waterproofing = child spill proof

          Con -
          When I'm using the outer bottle holder, I can't use the inner pocket. and...Maybe one more bottle holder/pocket on the other side?

            Great combination of features. I had the medium size and my main complaint was it was a bit too small. Getting a large laptop gave me an excuse to get a bigger bag. I travel a lot and carry my computer, accessories, paperwork, snack, and it still has room for a hoodie for the cold airplanes. My old bag was high quality and this bag looks like it's going to be the same.
