Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

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.

    Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    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

    By stay-at-home-mom on the go

    From Chattanooga, TN

    About Me: Practical

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Big But Not Clumbersome
    • Durable 
    • 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:

    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?

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      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.

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      I ordered a small in this bag to travel with or for transporting items to work and back. I did not want anything too large as I would then be tempted to load it up. I like the separate area for small laptops or e-readers. It is easy to unzip this back area and lay the bag flat to go through airport security. I actually used the laptop pocket for my iPad since it is in an otter case. The small bag will not hold a 14 inch laptop, but the medium will. The outside water bottle pocket actually fit my 18 oz hydroflask bottle. I do wish there was maybe one more inside pocket to help organize items so you don't have to dig through the bag for stuff. I love the new napoleon pocket to accessing items without having to open the main flap. Even stuffed to the max it still fit under the seat on even the most cramped airplane. So it gets high marks from me.

        Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        Needed a new bag. I had an original messenger bag from the 80s and love it. Still functional and durable but needs some minor repair. My other commuter bag finally wore out. It was a Yak bag. Lasted for years.

        Friction buckle releases to easily and accidentally. The original holds much better although it is larger.
