Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

Timbuk 2 bags rock. They are amazing quality. I have owned MANY and plan to keep buying. Having said that there are some things I would like added to the classic messenger bag. Magnet clip bag closures like on the Timbuk2 Especial- so much easier to open and close then the two handed plastic buckles. I would also love a simple outside stash pocket- I always want to throw something in the bag without opening the main compartment. Maybe these could just be upgrades to the custom bags but still. Oh and the water bottle pocket is too small

    Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

    I am over the moon about this bag and how it has transformed my everyday life. I am finally organized and this bag looks fantastic, I custom created it after all! Thank you TIMBUK2 for a single bag that I can do everything in my life with, from teaching to sailing and lifeguarding to going on a date! It looks great everywhere and people notice.

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        I use it when I don't need my full backpack for school. I love the adjustable strap and access to the phone pocket without opening the big flap. But the darn thing is just too big for me and is therefore uncomfortable when I have it on my shoulder. The material is great but not flexible enough to wrap around my hip, adding to the discomfort. If I were to do-over, I would order two non-custom bags (the medium and the small) to see which one I like the best and then I would send both of them back and order the custom the way I want it. That's probably not a solution that you want to hear, but it's the only way I know that I could be assured that I get what I need and want since the custom classic bag cannot be returned.

                Out all day on my back walking through flooding, everything was dry. Leave it out all day in the Sun, everything is still cool to the touch. Leave it hanging on the worksite with heavy dust blowing and everything is still fairly clean and uncontaminated inside. It has pockets to put everything I need in a daily bag and a load of groceries on my way home. Its my go to, everyday.. And its holding up great!

                Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

                I bought this to replace an aging classic timbuk2 bag that I purchased nearly a decade ago. The original was everything I wanted in a messenger bag and had put up with a lot of abuse. I was pleased to see that the newer Classic Messenger Bags had some additional features - laptop sleeves, additional pockets/organizers, bottle holders. I figured I would upgrade the one I had and replace it was a new one with a bunch of fancy add-ons.
                Once I got the bag, I realized that the trade-off for this features is a bag that quite simply feels cheap. The fabric is noticeably thinner throughout. There's slightly less material in the closing flap - it doesn't extend down as far, reducing the overall amount of stuff you can put in the bag. The worst change is easily the strap - the original bag had a thick, robust, comfortable strap - it's been replaced with the thinnest webbing I've ever seen.
                My biggest regret is that I have got a custom bag - had I known the materials were cheaper than what they used to be, I would have just kept using the old one.
