What's this all about?

Created in reaction to the rise of mighty TSA in American airports, our new Commute laptop messenger bag is approaching perfection. Its laptop compartment unzips to lie flat so you don't have to remove your laptop at airport security, and its waterproof TPU flap keeps your gear dry in a drizzle. 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:

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.

    Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    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.

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      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.

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      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.

        Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        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.

            I ordered a messenger bag size L according to your size chart for my laptop (Mac Book Pro Retina Display 15"), but it results too big, yesterday a tried my laptop in an M size of a friend and It fits perfect.

            I suggest to review the size chart

                Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

                As a CEO, I travel for business frequently and have used other high-end bags for years for their quality, but they are heavy and bulky especially when travelling light. I was looking for a professional looking, durable, roomy and light weight bag. I first experienced the quality of Timbuk2, when my 23 year-old son purchased the same bag when he started his career in IT a year ago, so I bought the same bag for myself. The Timbuk2 bag exceeded my requirements much better than my more expensive bags. My Timbuk2 is now my daily and travel go to bag.
