    Guys, the old clamp and strap were much better. It could be used one handed and couldn't get creased or tangled. Don't call it the classic bag. Everything else is an improvement.

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        I had a small timbuk2 bag that I bought in 2005 that I used heavily almost every day for 11 years. It was finally getting too grungy to bring to work, with a few seams ripping, fuzz in the velcro, dirt from a decade of use etc, so I decided to make an investment in my next decade and get a new timbuk2. Overall, I like the new bag better. I opted to get the pocket divider in my small bag and it's helped keep my book and work items separate from my lunch and spare clothes. It's also handy when I'm just out running errands because I can slip my bikelock back there and it doesn't get buried. I like all the new pockets--it has more than my original bag. All the small pockets on the front do stack on top of one another (bulkyness in one pocket affects the available space in pockets next to it), so I can't put MORE stuff in them than my old timbuk2, but small things like cards, bike lights, and chapstick are slightly more organized. I also decided to have the water bottle holders sewed in. I have a tiny nalgene bottle that just barely fits and a very small coffee mug (soda can size) that fits with a struggle. I like the holders, but anyone with bigger bottles/mugs should be prepared for these to be REALLY snug or not fit your bottle in a small bag. My only real complaint is the strap. The new one is thinner, more flexible, less comfortable with a heavy load, and it keeps getting tangled in my bag while I'm packing up or with my helmet and bike lock, which I often hook around it when getting on the train or while I'm in the office. I do feel like some bag components are slightly less rugged than my old bag too (zippers and pulls, clips etc), but I still get the impression that the bag will last several years with hard use.

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        I got this bag as a smaller camera bag. I got the small. It just barely fits my Canon T3I with the snoop camera insert. It is perfect for having just my camera and battery backup but there isn't anything else I can fit in the bag. It is great for day trips when I don't need anything other than my camera.

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        I use this bag daily on my bike commute to work in the rainy Pacific NW. I have the large and use it to carry my work clothes and lunch, along with rain gear when needed.

        It was easy to pick a bag that fit my style while using water resistant options. The designing and ordering process what very straight-forward and fun!This is my second bag after using my previous Timbuk2 bag for commuting for 5 years. I prefer the older, stiffer style of bag strap. The new, current strap option is flimsy and loosens often.

        I love these bags and plan to have them with me as long as I commute!

        the material looks great it's a tad wider and makes it more appealing I take it everywhere work shopping etc
        it's the perfect size for everything you need during the day so you can run all of your errands at once

        maybe one day someone will get the idea to put pockets on both sides one that you can stuff extra change in for those I'm in a hurry and I'm not picking it up off the floor

          I use the bag daily to carry personal belongings. Very attractive, durable and roomy. I use it when I fly and use mass transit. Every aspect of bag is good, except for the velcro closure. The velcro was worn in about a month of use. I have to always use plastic buckles to keep bag shut wich becomes troublesome when in a hurry or rushing.
