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:

    I love my Timbuk2! Not only does it hold everything I use at school, but there is plenty of room for my additions for work. Even the "small" bag has plenty of room. I love this thing! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a solid messenger bag.

    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.

          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.

            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.
