Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

really cool that you offer reflectiv fabrics; since pedestrians & cyclists are dressed all in black ...

the kink of the flap is the first part that wears down to damage - in combination with the laptop compartment even more critical

    Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

    I am a mom, a teacher, and an NYC commuter with back and joint pain. I need a bag that strained my joints minimally when loaded, but is light when not loaded, and is completely weather-proof. I tried a lot of different bags and sizes, and finally borrowed my husband's 15 year old Timbuktu bag. I thought he'd let me keep it, but he said NO WAY and I had to go on the web site and get myself an early Xmas present. I LOVE this bag, and have been making similarly-enlightened connections all over the city- my doctor, that random guy on the train, it's amazing. :)

    The fact that I couldn't get an all-purple one is, in the greater scheme, a really minor complaint. The inside that is NOT BLACK so you can actually find things is a revelation, in a city that is entirely too obsessed with black.

    Love also the attention to sustainability. Love you guys! #fanforlife

      Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

      The bag that goes with the task of living large! When I need to carry more than I can handle and I'm gone for the day or week all of my essentials fit inside food/change of clothes, wine etc. Nothing falls out thanks to strong clasps and burly Velcro. Away fromHome-and on the run take it from a busy personal trainer you nailed the stylish man bag!!!

      Lighter but sacrifices too much sturdiness.

      By Tips from teacher

      From Seattle, WA

      About Me: Career, Practical, Stylish

      Pros

      • It Is Lighter
      • New Colors Are Stylish

      Cons

      • Has Lost Sturdiness

      Best Uses

      • Great For Teachers

      Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

      I have always had a Timbuk2 bag for carrying my teaching supplies, project materials, and loads of paperwork and random items. The bags have been great and have lasted a long time. My newest bag has the best colors that have been offered. However, the bag feels too light. The bag doesn't stay 'stood up' on it's own. It wilts. The interior laptop pocket is too weakly attached to provide a clear separator when I need it. It's not enough to turn me off the bag but it is enough to dampen my enthusiastic recommendation.

          The bag I recieved looked nothing like custom bag I designed on the website. Five weeks later I have just ordered the replacement bag. I am not expecting it for another 3 weeks at least. I will never order another bag from you again. Terrible customer service.

              So disappointed that T2 will not stand by its warranty - particularly on a top-end custom bag. T2 customer service useless - failure to even understand basic issues of bag construction like how a strap may get twisted in assembly. I own multiple T2 bags and have given T2 bags as gifts, including the recent defective purchase. T2 - you won't embarrass me again! This experience has turned me into a T2 negevangelist. If T2 wants to be treated like a cool company it should act like one.

                  The strap is skinnier that before, the colors, despite the names were off, feels less durable than before.

                    I got this as a gift from my wife, to finally solve my never ending quest for a good, solid, practical but stylish bag. Its great, was made and delivered quickly - despite the transatlantic order. I use it pretty much every day now, for all sorts of errands. I kinda wish we picked the medium size though, the small size is a tad too small for my 15inch laptop.

                    What's this all about?

                    25 years of messenger expertise bring you our updated Custom Classic Messenger Bag. Designed in San Francisco with decades of user testing and consumer feedback in mind, our updated Custom Classic Messenger features a new refined look, updated fit, and smarter organization. A new shoulder strap features finer webbing, Timbuk2's new Double-Loop CAM buckle that adjusts quickly and eliminates dangling straps and works perfectly with the optional new curved air-mesh strap pad for increased comfort. The SR buckles are partially concealed behind the messenger flap for a more refined but just as secure closure. Inside, the waterproof TPU liner and corner wings keep water out, and optional internal water bottle pockets promote hydration (and water fights). Distributed internal pockets and organization balances the weight of your carry. It's a classic reborn and ready to be worn for another quarter century.
