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!

Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

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

    Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

    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.

      Great for Giants games. If you buy the strap, however, be aware that it needs to be adjusted to the right place, each time you take it on and off

        I use this bag 5 days a week, commuting on the bus back and forth to work. I purchased the medium, however, have ordered another bag in large. Once I put my lunch in it, work shoes, paperwork, etc., I have found the medium was not big enough., for me :-(. Other than that, I love everything about the bag. That's why I ordered another one!

              I bought this to have a bag that I could take on the plane, wear at conferences, hold my computer, and was dressier than the backpack I usually take but feel out of place with. And it does all of this! Dressy, comfortable, lightweight, fits my computer.

              What I didn't realize is that I would also be grabbing it for errands around town. It's just the perfect size for so many things! Been using it all the time.

              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.
