      I took a very long time to design my bag, I forgot to order a comfort strap with my bag, but the customer service team helped add to my order and took the extra shipping charge off. They were quickly responsive and helpful.

        Needed an upgrade from XS bag of 2008 - took the custom approach, got a Medium bag & it's perfect in every way. I wake up each day and say "I love this bag, best decision." Great size, strap is super comfortable, laptop sleeve eliminates my need for a case & I couldn't have asked for more with colors. Customer service was friendly/helpful & they even talked me into sending my XS bag bag for refurbishing (liner was worn/weathered) - and THEN i'll be so excited to have two different sizes back in my possession.

          My partner brought this bag 13 years ago and it's still going but I was able to custom make a new one that is exactly the same!
          He is impressed with the compartments that can be zipped up.
          Great waterproof material. Uses it everyday to take his laptop to work or when going to the beach, kids sport. A really versatile bag. Highly recommend this bag. I ordered this from Australia and it arrived in a couple of days and was custom made. Very impressed!

            I decided to get a new messenger bag that was smaller than my old Timbuk2 bag (which is 22years old and still going strong!). I love my new one and get a lot of compliments! I especially like the reflective panel feature!

              Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

              Let me start off by saying that I love my bag. I was able to customize what I wanted the inside and outside to look like, so it really does look like what I want my bag to appear as. It shows my style as well as being practical. The strap angle and sliding adjustment allows me to adjust quickly while commuting if I'm wearing a coat, if the area is cramped and I need to swivel it around, or if I'm walking and want it close to my back. The pocket inside is not against the back so that the laptop is not taking a constant beating from my hip or back, which has caused pressure points in my screen in the past, so this is an important feature that I enjoy in my current bag. The minimal compartments are a plus, so that I'm not looking in a million pockets for what I'm wanting. The durability and water resistance are something that I can't live without in my way of life. Living in a big city, I commute daily, so my bag takes a beating without me wanting it to and the waterproof aspect keeps my personal items protected.
              For the cons, which aren't really cons - more like growing points - The pockets that I paid to put in additionally for water bottles or something of the sort are not large enough for my water bottles - non of them. I put mints in that pocket. I can *shove* one water bottle in, but if I pull it out while walking or on the train, I'm not putting it back in without having to go through the effort of *shoving* it back in. Another pain point is the pockets in the front. There are minimal pockets on the inside and several pockets on the outside. The problem is that these pockets are over lapping one another and thus results in a bulky front of the bag or potentially dropping things since they won't fall inside my bag if they do fall - so I don't use those pockets for much. These would be better used inside.
              All in all, I love the bag and would recommend Timbuk2 to anyone that can afford the price.

                I work outside and carry my lunch with me every day and was looking for a perfect bag that will hold-up for 8 hours of wear 5 days a week. This bag is simply THE BEST! I'm so happy with it. It's durable, cute, and exactly what I wanted. Will be buying from Timbuk2 again!
