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.

      Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

      I'm using this as a purse. The one suggestion I would make, and I realize this is a messenger bag, is to make it an option whether or not you want the reflective tags on the strips on the bottom of the bag. Otherwise a great bag! I had my last Timbuk2 purse for 10 years. It wore like iron. Truth is although the lining was finally starting to fray a bit and the lighter parts of the purse were a bit stained, it was still in great usable shape.

      Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

      So I finally decided to upgrade from my messenger that was given to me for high school graduation (about 11 years ago...lol). It took me a while to spend the money, but I couldn't be more happy. I am a bike commuter....biking about 12-20 miles a day! And this bag has been excellent for that.

      Its also quite stylish, I get mad compliments...ohh, its one-of-a-kind, because I designed it! YAY!

      I gifted the commuter bag to my daughter who takes BART into the city several days a week. She loves the bag for its roominess and style but would like to have more interior pockets. She gave it 4/5 stars!

        Great bag - only wish that the interior computer pocket had something to secure it when it is being used for other things (e.g. books)

          Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

          This bag is fantastic in every way. I chose to get waterproof material since we are in the PacNW. Sometimes waterproof material can be fragile and prone to tears but not so here. This waterproof material is fierce. My one and only request for change is please consider adding more waterproof options.

            Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

            So Timbuk 2 may have done themselves a disservice. Normally, I buy bags on a regular basis because I'm still always looking for a better bag than the one I have; however, this bag is so perfect that I will only be buying another one if I destroy this one! It truly is the perfect bag. Customized to my own specifications I can carry my water bottle inside, store my computer and other items safely, and with all the organizational pouches it meets all my organizing needs. I have not had any interest in even looking at other bags since I received it and look forward to enjoying it for the next several years. So Timbuk 2, you did a great job on the bag but sadly, I won't be in any rush to buy another one until this one goes. If you need an order from me, send someone to rough up my bag!
