Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

This is a good looking bag. Great storage spaces and room for extras. I love the fact that I have a bag that no one else will have because I customized it is wonderful! I get many compliments on it.

The only thing that I can say bad about it is that the Medium is a big bag. It feels like a large. I was not expecting it to be that large. I am only 5'4" so schlepping through the airports can be challenging. Thank goodness this is a crossbody strap (also customized) and I can toss it behind me and be off and running!

      I use my bag daily for school and commuting. I love this bag because it's rugged, well made, great style, and it's a great mix of professional and leisure. This bag is very versatile and you can tell it'll hold up over time. Great features and personality. Best bag ever.

        Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

        This is approx my 10th Timbuk2 bag. Most of them customised. But this one ... after I opened it, I put it right back in the shipping bag, and put it in the back of my closet. The reason? The material on the Timbuk2.com configuration page looks very different than in real life. Up close, in the photograph, the pattern is much clearer. And the material does not look so rubbery. In real life, the pattern is kind of smudgy. And the material is not nice to the touch. I still need a new bag, but I don't think I'm going to roll the dice on a custom Timbuk2 bag again. A little bummed this time.

        Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

        I use the bag for everyday commutes and for work travel. I really wanted a TSA compliant bag since I travel often. This bag is not what I'd hoped for. It's beautiful in color and construction, but that beauty fades quickly when you throw it over your shoulder or start filling the compartments with your stuff.

        It just looks awful without a laptop in the compartment. I didn't buy this bag to look awful. But since it was customized, I can't return it - or I would.

        The front pockets droop excessively, which makes the whole bag deform. Without a laptop in the compartment, the bag has a tendency to fold in on itself excessively, which further distorts the beauty of the materials and construction.

        Worse, the strap adjuster is CONSTANTLY coming loose, which makes the bag fall down while on my shoulder.

        I've bought many Timbuk2 bags, but this is BY FAR the worst one I've ever owned in terms of poor design and my overall dissatisfaction. I will never buy one of these bags again. My husband has three beautiful Timbuk2 bags he's thrilled with and use interchangeably. I use these from time to time as well, which is what pulled me away from my leather messenger into a Timbuk2 bag. I hadn't carried one daily for a few years. My previous was a large backpack that isn't practical for daily carry now that I don't have a 17 in. laptop.

          I use this product as my daily driver. Travel to the office or day trips to the costumer. Great is everything except the shoulder strap. It's plastic and I'am not sure if it will broke in the next months. I'll hope I'am wrong.

          Nice bag overall for daily commuting with all the compartments, but was somewhat disappointed at this price level to find plastic hardware and Velcro. Hopefully will be able to remove Velcro pieces when it starts to wear out.

          Reflective binding fails, as does Timbuk2 customer service

          Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

          I purchased this bag in November of 2014, and was initially very happy. The rear (against your body) zip pocket easily fit both my laptop (13" Macbook Air) and iPad. The bag was great for commuting, and in general fit my idea of what a Timbuk2 bag is and should be.

          However, approximately a year later, the reflective binding (the part that goes around the flap) that I added to my custom bag began to wear, and eventually tore off in some places. I've been a Timbuk2 customer for years, and they have always stood by their product... BUT something has changed, and the customer service I have experienced is appalling. Emails have gone unanswered for months, and follow ups have been ignored. I'm not sure what has happened to the once-great Timbuk2 customer service, but it's not the same as it once was. If you buy this bag, I suggest avoiding the reflective bits around the flap, and not attempting to use it on a bike - there's no cross strap, and no ring to add your own.

          • Not Using Gave To Husband

          Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

          This was originally intended for me to use as a carry-on bag for a trip to the UK, thus the waterproof fabric. It's too heavy with not enough compartments, and with extreme Velcro (not discussed in the video). My husband is using it for a brief commute and he complains that is is uncomfortable, but it is nicer looking than his backpack. My main advice: do not customize unless you've tried the bag before. If you customize the bag, you cannot return it.
