The only draw for me is, my compartment for my tablet is small. I have a Surface, not an iPad, so if they could work that out it would be perfect.

Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

Found timbuk2 online when researching messenger bags. Found on Amazon because Amazon owns search results via Google. But ended up ordering directly from timbuk2 because their site had more content to direct me into the correct product (better shopping experience) and price was the same or better than Amazon. Note that Amazon only gets my order if lower by 5% or more.

Love this bag. Gives me all of the needed compartments, storage and more. Plus, I look hip and cool. No more back pack. I am 47 and now can hang with the 20-30 year olds that I work with. They all had messenger bags :)

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      This is a great looking bag and seems very sturdy. It looks like it will hold alot of items. I am easily able to get my work laptop (15" Macbook Pro Retina), work and personal tablets and all accessories in. There is plenty of room for other items. It is well thought out with lots of pockets. The website showed that my macbook pro would not fit. I called timbuk2 customer service and the person i talked to said that the macbook pro would fit and it did! Perfectly! Kudos to customer service for knowing that and telling me without hesitation! Love Timbuk2! Thanks!

        Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        I'm on the go with my 13" laptop regularly for business and travel out of country several times a year. I use my iPad as often for the same purposes. The Commute Bag is a great replacement to my old laptop backpack which was a very good bag but a bit clumsy to pull out the laptop or dig into for papers. Even though it was for a laptop it didn't have as much protection. Appreciate the TSA friendliness and so far the airport security in other countries has accepted this bag's design as well. Plenty of storage though I would like less small pockets and a few more medium size ones. The Napoleon pocket is especially convenient. Easy fit under a airplane seat. Velcro is bit noisy so glad I don't have to open the big flap to reach my laptop or iPad. Best bag I have ever had.

          Love this bag. Has lots of choices for placing your things. Has two pockets in the front for those who live with multiple phones. Every other pocket, divider, sleeve, etc. is well thought out. There are no shortcomings with this bag.

          Use it for work with a MBP 13" retina display, slightly oversized but with no troubles.

          Great bag for commuting. Have used it under heavy rain and water proof material is really good.

          Bag tends to bounce/swing when running, but there's a brief handle to hold onto so was alright.

            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.
