    Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

    I was looking for a quality durable bag that is made in the US and will last that would replace buying purses forever. This bag killed it. Not only does it have a pocket for my make up and slots for my credit cards but also enough space to stash a change of clothes and small laptop or other electronic device. Friends of mine have timbuk2 bags from a decade + ago & that speaks volumes on their durability. With the lifetime warranty I'm confident I won't ever have to go bag shopping again.

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        The reference picture they let you view does not show you the approximate interior capacity. They use the same photo for all sizes I would not suggest using the small for school because it can barely fit the width of a single binder.

        They really should include internal dimensions when you're customizing your bag online. I could never return it either (custom order).

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        I've been a loyal Timbuk2 fan for years, but this is the first time that I decided to get a custom bag. I knew that I wanted something small and chic, so I went with black waxed canvas all around and I love it! One of my relatives even ended up ordering a custom bag after he saw mine.

        I only have a few critiques - I really miss the interior organizers that could hold pens. I always carry several pens with me, and this feature is so awesome.

        I'm also not really sure why the key leash is in the smallest pocket of the bag. I usually keep my keys in that pocket anyway, but there's no need to leash them too. A leash would make more sense in one of the larger sections of the bag.

        The height of the bag is slightly shorter than my old ones, making it a tight fit for my Swell water bottle. If it had one extra inch of height it'd be perfect. I just secure it a little looser to make it work.

        Please add a customization option for no velcro. I HATE velcro and I had a local luggage shop remove it from my bag, adding extra cost on my end. It'd be some much easier to just not have velcro from the beginning, and I'm sure I'm not alone in my dislike of velcro.

        Overall, it's a fantastic, quality Timbuk2 bag and I love it :)

          Would like a laptop specific, padded pocket inside for laptop
          Would like one large zipped internal pocket at back
          Velcro is LOUD and long -would like smaller and/or quiet Velcro
          Considering removing or buying more Velcro to cancel out the Velcro closure
          It is disruptive to open in a meeting room, library, or office

            I use my Timbuk2 custom messenger bag (XS) as an everyday bag when going to work, running errands, in short travels, etc. It is very handy and comfortable, although a bit stiff as a new.

            Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

            I wanted a Timbuk2 bad for about 5 years, but i could never find one to look over and examine. Lets face it, almost $200 is a lot to spend and not be able to return. So for 5 years i went with a 5.11. I really liked it and it has some very strong points. But one day i decided to by a custom classic bag. Now that I have it i can only give it a wear 4 stars. The construction is top notch, it is as described. the inside, well that is one of two places that hurt it. The online description does not show that the computer sleeve and big pocket is not attached to the back and creates another sleeve area. To be honest people, if you use a protector for your lap top or tablet, you do not need the computer sleeve. Also what is not mentioned and should be included at $200 is the silencers for the velcro, had to make another order for that. The biggest complaint is the length of the strap. it is adjustable, and the adjustment works great but I am 6 foot and pretty good size, even stretched all the way out the bag rides just below the small of my back! I can wear it over my shoulder but its not as comfortable as my 5.11. The final complaint i have is that water bottle holder are just stretchy mesh, and will NOT fit a 32 oz Nalgene bottle, or insulated cup or anything that size. I and to buy another bottle so i can carry something to drink with me and thankfully there are 2 so i am OK most days.
            I bought it to have something that looked less tactical then the 5.11 and this does. the construction is top notch and it holds bunches of stuff, but for everyday utility, i still use the 5.11 about 1/2 the time. I truly wish i could return it and have about 8-12 inches added to the strap and that would help a lot.
            the review asks if i would recommend this to someone. it depends, i would show them both this bag, a 5.11 bag and let them decided.

              Bought this bag in extra small to use as a day bag for a trip to Rome and Paris. The bag was great on the trip. The construction quality is top notch. The bag held a ton of stuff. It held tickets for attractions, snacks, point and shoot Sony camera, extra batteries, battery chargers, sunglasses, iPhone, keys, water bottle, rain coat, etc.

                These bags are simply the best! I bought this for my husband as a surprise gift to replace his old Timbuk2 bag. He has had his bag since he was a child (he is 29 now) and it still works wonderfully despite the stains and wear. You simply won't find a better bag than these. My timbuk2 bag is going on 4 years old and is still perfect as well. We love these products and can't recommend them enough.
