    Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

    Beautiful. Elegant. Simple. Strong. All black model.

    Amazing protection for my computer. Great organizational capability for my other items.
    Bag is so well-designed that I can carry ~10 additional pounds and not notice much difference. With a different bag, such a weight addition might cause significant discomfort after a long day.

    I'm so happy with this bag! I will be buying another in about a half-decade when this one finally starts to show signs of wear and tear.

    I replaced a Tumi briefcase with Timbukt2. So far, I am loving the bag. Much more functional than the Tumi.

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      Hi,

      The bag itself is lovely. I really love it and found quite usefull. This what i really wanted. There's enough room for two laptops inside and for all my staff. If I should chose a new laptop bag, I would pick the same.

      BUT IMPORTANT TO NOTICE, THAT IF SOMEONE IS ORDERING FROM ABROAD, (NOT FROM US) HE MIGHT PAY CUSTOM. I ordered from London, so the transportation and the custom was almost the price of the bag again!

      I recommend you to note the customer befor proceeding to buy it!

      Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

      This is my daily commute bag. I like the handle and strap and the way the bag is organized. Very high quality. My only complaint is the velcro closure is so sticky it takes some effort to rip the bag open. I tamed it by placing some tape over part of the velcro.

        i use this bag for my daily commute to and from work taking mass transit in NYC. So far the bag appears to be very durable. If is comfortable when used with the shoulder strap and hand carry. Bag is roomy and fits my electronic gear, papers and other nonsense that I think I need to survive.
        Also seems to hold up good in rain and snow.
        I purchased this bag because a coworker has one and he too gave it good reviews.

        Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

        Comfortable, roomy bag constructed with high quality materials. The laptop pocket fits my 15.4" Macbook Pro perfectly. Lots of convenient storage pockets, pouches. Very roomy main compartment can hold a lot of stuff, maybe even everything for an overnight trip (haven't tried it, though). As other reviews have noted, this is truly a "bag" and the main compartment does not have a lot of structure, so if you only have a few things in it, they will flop around a bit. Not a big deal for me. The one thing that gives me pause is the padding for the laptop section is a little thin and it puts the laptop right up against the back of the bag. I'm a little concerned about using it with the luggage handle passthrough because I'm afraid it will put undue pressure on my laptop. For that reason, I may get a neoprene sleeve for the laptop and keep it in the main compartment when traveling. Otherwise it's a great product and I'm very happy with it.

          Comments about Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag:

          Great bag. Very well thought out for those of us who travel through airports a lot. Only frustration is the cheap (and slippery) shoulder strap pad that comes with the bag. I had to buy an additional no skid pad. Wish it had simply come with it in the first place. If it had, the bag would be at least a 9 or 10 out of 10.

            I ordered this bag as I needed a new one for a new job that involves a little more quick travel. I was going to purchase the large but based on the other reviews ordered the medium and it has plenty of room for what I need including a 15 inch laptop. Plenty of file space and the inside expands nicely to create an almost square bottom(that sounds funny). Anyway, I haven't used it a ton yet but so far so good and I'll add a star once I break it in more and it survives.
