Additionally, this laptop messenger bag has external water bottle pockets and a silly amount of internal organization for pens, mice, cords, and bades, and our beloved red key fob. Thou shall never dig for thy keys or be last through the security line again.

    Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    The Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag is an overall decent bag. However, in my opinion it does not fit its description. The laptop compartment is of low quality materials and offers no protection aside from shielding the laptop from scratches. I dislike using the bag to carry my laptop short distances, and would never consider actually commuting with it.

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      After 5 years, this bag is still going strong. I got the large thinking a medium would be too small. I've since learned that having a bag that will hold a laptop, an iPad, various chargers and cables, and a redwell or two of paper simply means I'm carrying too much.

      While I originally purchased this bag as a commuter bag, I've used it for extended trips (using packing cubes etc.). This bag holds everything.

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      So here is the plus of the Small Commute first: a Macbook Air 13" fits perfect, even in it's Incase case in the TSA-approved section. I really wanted to love this bag, but there are a few issues with the strap, especially when you are on the shorter size (I'm 5'4"). I've had a classic messenger in the past, which I loved and eventually traded-in using Timbuk2's recycle program. I've heard some great things about the Commute, so I headed to my local outdoor equipment store and tried it out. Turns out that the strap adjust is located high on the strap. That means that when you're shorter like me, and you make the strap shorter, the adjuster is in the way of the strap pad. Because of this, the strap pad ends up unhelpfully resting on the chest and not my shoulder. Now, you'd think that the strap pad might be able to fit over the adjuster because it has velcro, but I didn't find that was the case. You could remove the strap pad, but it's so nice and really helps with a heavy load. Still on my quest to find the perfect laptop messenger.

        Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        For years, I had heard great things about these bags from places like Lifehacker.com and others. As my old backpack had seen better days, I knew that it was time to pick up something new. I was hesitant buying a bag that I had never held and didn't know anyone personally who owned one, but I am glad I pulled the trigger. The bag is exceptionally constructed with roomy interior pockets as well as the TSA compartment for my laptop. I have been using it for weeks now and love it!

        So, the inside pocket is sort of lame. It is intended for files and magazines, but it is not deep enough for that to be real. They stick out the top, and then you cannot close the strap.

          Great bag for my grad school life. Didn't want to revert to a backpack due to the need for professionalism. The tote I had was killing my shoulder/back, so this is a good trade off. Back is happy and I can carry what I need (books, laptop, etc.). I do wish there was another zipped or flapped pocket for pens as mine fall out into the bag when it isn't loaded up, but that is trivial. There is a few zippered pockets, but they have other uses for me.

            Very pleased with the quality of this bag. I bought this after a co-worker who owned the same bag told me about it. He had traveled the world, literally, with this bag. I figured it should last for me as I use it as a daily laptop bag with pretty frequent air travel.

            The quality of this bag is excellent and I am happy with this purchase.

            Overall, great bag with plenty of room and quality build. However, strap slips off the shoulder. May need non-slip material. Also, need a non-slip material on the bottom of the bag it slips down when placed on the floor.

              Im going to college and this is perfect. I bought a large, to fit my laptop. There's so much room, i can easily fit everything in there. The downside is the default stap. Order the delux strap pad thing. It's worth it and it makes all the difference.
