    Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

    In many ways this is a great bag. I had a custom classic messenger that I've used for years (I actually still use it as a showering bag at work.) I needed a bigger bag to use while bicycle commuting to work. It has to hold a work outfit, lunch, my laptop, tablet and assorted tech support stuff. Cords, chargers and such. The medium messenger was too small so I got this bag. I was glad to see a bottle holder inside, great for my Klean Kanteen when I get to work or where ever and pull it out of the bike rack.
    The one problem it has is that the webbing that holds the two bucks is unraveling. I've never seen such a thing on a Timbuk2 product. I'm living with it for now to see how bad it gets. This is the first non-five star rating I've ever given a Timbuk2 bag, and I've had at least a half a dozen different styles.
    You can't see the straps because the buckles are under the flap. The other straps don't seem to have this problem. IT's just shoddy materials and I'm surprised.

            Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

            I've been buying Timbuk2 bags for years - this purchase was my 5th (or 6th?). The best thing about them is the ability to go crazy picking custom colors. The next best thing is the quality - over the years, I've had absolutely no problems with any of my bags - you definitely get what you pay for! My only two (minor) complaints are that they're way more comfortable when you wear them across your chest (like a messenger) than when they hang down off of one shoulder (like I normally do, for airline travel) and that it's way too easy to go crazy with the options, creating too many pockets and dividers, that just add weight and, often, limit flexibility.

            Finally, while it's not surprising that Timbuk2's designs have evolved over the years, I was a bit disappointed that the basic proportions on the current Extra Small are different than the previous (Mexican "P" name) model that it apparently replaced. Instead of just showing pictures of bags on models (as done now), giving actual dimensions (as was done previously), would (seem to be?) more useful to most buyers (especially since custom bags can't be returned)!

            Bottom line - Timbuk2 makes a quality product, offers great customer service and keeps at least some of their production in the States - what's not to like?!

              Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

              I've been a loyal Timbuk2 bag owner for over 10 years. I've noticed a slip in quality in the last couple of bags I've purchased.

              This most resent bag, like all the other bag's I've purchased, was a custom messenger bag. I requested custom colors, bag material, internal liner color, and additional pockets. The bag arrived with a newer flimsy strap which folds and twists under the shoulder pad, tangling it into an uncomfortable knot.

              I set my bag on the ground regularly. Timbuk2 has forgotten this possibility and refused to give the option of a darker colored bottom, which in the past afforded protection form the ground, or floor preventing staining, and discoloration.

              Lastly, you would expect attention to detail to be higher when order a custom bag. Her again in the past Timbuk2 would have never let a custom bag go with out checking to see *all* the customized items had been added. My additional internal water bottle pockets were not built into my bag.

              As a bag maker whose initial market was those who travel on two wheels, Timbuk2 has clearly lost focus on its core competency, and has rightly earned the 1 star given.

              Comprehensive Failure!

                This purse is an upgrade from a Timbuk2 I bought over 10 years ago. The colors and style look exactly like the bag I made on the customization website. The workmanship is top knotch and I look forward to using the bay for many years to come.

                    I purchased the made in the USA model and hope more folks will do the same because it does matter.
                    Quality and options are great.
                    Wears like iron.
                    Nice to have the ability to return to TIMBUK2 if it needs a tune-up down the road, not likely but good to know.

                    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.
