Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

Great bag. Very practical. Resistant. I find the strap not the most comfortable. I am not sure the flaps inside to help against rain are all that useful but they are a pain to always open and close. There should be a pocket on the cover flap of the bag since the side pocket is hard to reach.

I love the bag and am very pleased with the purchase.

Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

I love this bag. I looked for 3 solid days making sure that I found the right one that fit my lifestyle. This one is perfect! I was super impressed with the high quality part of it. I was also impressed with the TSA friendly part. I just traveled recently and put it to test. The only thing I don't care for is the strap pad. When full of things the bag can get heavy and the pad doesn't offer much support in that. However, I would buy this bag all over again.

    Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    I had a laptop bag, a bag with files, books and marking and a lunch bag as well as my purse when I went to work. My shoulders couldn't fit everything on them. Now everything is in one bag except my purse and it's much easier to find everything and even getting in and out of the car is easier.

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      This is a terrific bag. My old one was stolen a few years ago and I tried other bags since then. Happy I came back to Timbuk2, as nothing else really satisfied. I'm loving my new one. The biggest area for improvement, however, would be to add some padding to the bottom of the laptop and tablet sleeves. These compartments are protected everywhere but on the bottom and this is crucial.

        Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        Beautiful. Elegant. Simple. Strong. All black model.

        Amazing protection for my computer. Great organizational capability for my other items.
        Bag is so well-designed that I can carry ~10 additional pounds and not notice much difference. With a different bag, such a weight addition might cause significant discomfort after a long day.

        I'm so happy with this bag! I will be buying another in about a half-decade when this one finally starts to show signs of wear and tear.

        I replaced a Tumi briefcase with Timbukt2. So far, I am loving the bag. Much more functional than the Tumi.

          Hi,

          The bag itself is lovely. I really love it and found quite usefull. This what i really wanted. There's enough room for two laptops inside and for all my staff. If I should chose a new laptop bag, I would pick the same.

          BUT IMPORTANT TO NOTICE, THAT IF SOMEONE IS ORDERING FROM ABROAD, (NOT FROM US) HE MIGHT PAY CUSTOM. I ordered from London, so the transportation and the custom was almost the price of the bag again!

          I recommend you to note the customer befor proceeding to buy it!
