        Arrived fast through international mail.
        Useful and practical but poorly made
        Arrived with the seams of the velcro unstitched. Had to take it to the tailor to make it work. Fits loosely on the cross strap - makes the strap slid around.

        I'm a professional that works in an office downtown Seattle. I ride in some days and this has worked out perfectly. I added it to my commander laptop messenger bag.

        I think they should come with all timbuk2 bags.

        Watch out!

        By Long-time Timbuk2 Fan

        From Brooklyn, NY

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Cross Strap With Clips:

        This is a great strap, but I only gave it two stars for the following reasons:
        1) This clip is too big for the D ring on the new messenger bag
        2) The new messenger bag already comes with a strap that works.

        I was able to repurpose this strap for a different bag, so it wasn't a big deal for me, but don't order this if you are getting the brand new messenger bag. If this is noted in the product description I missed it and apologize, but just keep this in mind.

          GOOD STUFF WORKS GREAT ON MY BAGS

          • Versatile

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Commuting

            Comments about Cross Strap With Clips:

            Just used it for the first time for several hours. This works great when Im commuting and have to do quick movements or jump the curb. Keeps my bag from sliding in the way now.

            For the people that bought it and your bag doesn't have the connection points on the bottom of the bag. I just put a key ring on the male connector for the flap and it seems to be working fine. I haven't had to do any curb jumping or quick avoidance moves yet. So we will see when the time comes (:

            I rocking two Timbuk2 bags a small classic messenger which I use as my gym bag now and a medium Commute messenger which I use for everything else and adapted for this product.

              Comments about Cross Strap With Clips:

              I've had a few timbuk2 bags for years and I recently gave one of my bags, with my only cross strap, to a friend in Holland. The cross strap helps to better distribute the weight of the messenger bags across your back, which makes carrying heavier items/larger amounts more comfortable -- so I obviously needed another one!

                Comments about Cross Strap With Clips:

                This is a must-have for all commuters and bikers with a medium/large messenger bag. Secures my bag perfectly and is sturdy yet extremely comfortable (note: I am a woman). I use it all the time, even when I'm not carrying a lot of stuff. It distributes the weight so much better and puts less stress on one shoulder. And to boot, it doesn't even look silly! :D If you're fashion conscious like me, you might be thinking this strap will make you look like a prude. Fear not my friends! This cross strap keeps it classy and totally works the biker-chic look. NOW GO BUY IT.
