    Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

    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!

            Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

            I use the medium classic messenger to carry laptop and daily debris to and from work. Padded laptop sleeve is a good idea as it keeps things secure and protected. Lots of space for lunch and a change of clothes should the need present. Enough pockets to keep the journey organized.

            Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

            I own an classic messenger bag which is ca. ten years old. Good quality and practical design! The thing is that having used the new custom bag some weeks now, I feel that the old one is more practical than the new one. I refer specifically to the changed position of the two 'locks' - now they are 'under' the cover part and more difficult to reach than before, not an improvement.
            And the length of the straps on the locks are much too long, or can't be made shorter if I want to. For me that is also not an improvement.
            So, still happy with the bag and its quality I wonder why you guys decided that the mentioned design changes made it any better?
            If I had known these changes ahead I wouldn't have ordered a new one! Better leave the classic the classic by not trying to improve it. That's what makes it a classic, no?

              Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

              Not the kind of quality I have come to expect. The release buckle on the strap has zero grip so slightest movement causes it to release and bag to suddenly drop, causing stress and strain on back and shoulder. Placement of the closure clips on underside of the bag flap, as oppose to on topside, causes edges of the flap to curl up, leaving velcro exposed. Consequently, exposed velcro snags clothing, often damaging clothing. I rarely use the word hate, but I truly hate this bag.

              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.
