    I use this bag every day for work. It fits my mac and all the paper work I need to carry. I have also traveled with this bag on an airplane. All in all it has worked out well for me in the two months that I have owned it.

    Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag 2014:

    I love the bag, but I should have measured my laptop first. My computer is too big to fit in the pocket. I can still get it into the compartment however. The only problem I have had is with the built in pencil and pen organizer, some of the stitching came loose that attaches the organizer to the bag. I have been using the bag for about two weeks when I noticed this.

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag 2014:

      This bag is just right. It's got the perfect amount of useful well designed storage compartments for daily use as a business commuter briefcase but none that are too specialized or quirky making them unusable. The lined pockets for electronic devices are awesome. The main storage area is large and flexible enough to carry variety of notebooks, files, etc. for a days worth of meetings. The construction seems very good and should prove to be durable. I purchased this to replace my old heavy leather bag, and this bags light weight is a hit, making my days on the road much more comfortable.

          I've replaced my previous laptop backpack with the Messenger and now started using it more than I've used backpack before. It's not only great for carrying laptop around, but it's very helpful for everyday all-around use (even though it's relatively bulky, but not too much).

            This bag is great for any kind of travel. I used it as an airline carry-on and it was super convenient to not have to remove my laptop for the TSA checkpoint. It was also a very good bag to use for cons. Plenty of room and different pockets for all that swag and things to get signed.

            Disappointed when it arrived the bag was covered in white powdery marks, and even after attempting to clean them off a few remain. The bag is otherwise great. But the grubby appearance has ruined what should of been a great first experience owning a Timbuk2 bag.

            The reason I didn't contact customer services was due to cost of returning item and the delay in waiting for a new one.

                I work as a registered RN, and this bag fits my daily living. One of the reasons why I loved this bag is because of how it was meticulously designed (simple outside, yet very organized from inside). User freindly too.
