    Gave this to my son for Christmas (per his request). The most liked feature was how lightweight it was when packed. It was easy to carry, well made and will make his flights across country less cumbersome.

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      I have the previous version of this bag, and I've noticed some subtle improvements, most of which show a careful attention to product design. The bag now has a better technology compartments, in which I have a laptop, an iPad and a BT keyboard, all fitting comfortably in their respective pockets.

      One area I would improve, which hasn't been addressed throughout the years, is the bottom of the laptop pocket: I would add a pad along the bottom to avoid hard contact between the laptop inside and the floor if and when the bag is plopped down (which I have done on occasion.)

      As far as the shoulder strap, since I've been a Timbuk2 customer for more two decades, I'm familiar with previous designs. Unfortunately, the current design doesn't allow the strap to be shortened beyond a certain point, whereas the previous design (which had a single camp on the front with an overhanging loop when shortened) allowed me to lengthen or shorten the strap as much or as little as I wanted. If I had a choice –or better yet, if I could order one for this bag!– I would go back to that system.

      One final note: the velcro strips under front flap are sewn to the lower –water resistant– layer that faces the inside of the bag, but are not sewn to the front and as a result, if the bag contents are heavy, the outside of the flap inflates and rises, detaching from the bag itself, such that if I'm concerned about it bursting open, I close the two latches, which makes it inconvenient if I must open and close it repeatedly. A minor niggle, for sure, but definitely worth mentioning. My suggestion would be to stitch the inside and outside panels together.

      Finally, they've added a velcro strip to the bottom of the pass-through pocket for sliding the bag onto a carry-on roller. It looks like the solution to a problem nobody complained about. Because the veldro is very sturdy and stick very well, it's pretty anoying to have to stick your hand underneath to separate the panels before sliding it onto my carry-on. I would eliminate this feature.

      Other than that, this bag is, as always, well designed and produced, with quality materials and solid stitching. We currently own four Timbuk2 bags and don't see a reason to consider any other brands.

      So glad I purchased this bag! Use it to and from work daily, I drive, but there's so much to take: computer, paperwork, personal items - everything fits and everything has it's place. Strap length is perfect, and the small handle at the top makes it easy to grab the bag and go.
      It sooo well made!

          I love that this bag sits up by itself. The laptop area is great for files and student work. The extra Velcro at the bag opening makes it seem less bulky, the opening does not yawn open. Great bag, tons of secret hiding places.

                    I bought the medium size bag for less than $50. This bag is roomy. I can put my Thinkpad, iPad, Surface Pro with all the necessary power bricks, 2 pair of glasses and there is room to spare. It will get heavy though with all the 'stuff' in it. For the price I paid, this is a no brainer. I wish the price of the small size is similar so I can also get that one too.
