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 a curved air-mesh strap pad for increased comfort, finer webbing, and Timbuk2's new Double-Loop CAM buckle that adjusts quickly and eliminates dangling straps. A new low-profile grab strap makes the messenger easier to grab and go, and 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 Laptop Messenger Bag:

    Day to day I load it up with normal "work stuff": lunch, water bottle, laptop, notebooks, pencils, etc. I chose some of the newer fabrics on offer, and after several months they are holding up great - zero wear. I have another Timbuk2 bag that is over 5 years old, and I love the subtle improvements they have made without killing the essence of what a good messenger bag is about.

      Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

      I had a bag before from Timbuk2 that was more like a briefcase/bag design that I loved. Unfortunately, they don't appear to offer it any more. It had outside pockets, zipped on top, and was comfortable to carry. This bag is durable and roomy, but not nearly as convenient without outer pockets to throw your keys/phone into for quick access. Also, the velcro top is annoying (loud) and cords that hang from the bottom are cumbersome (I used a rubber band to gather/tie them up). All in all, I will use this bag but won't get another one. Hopefully they will bring back that other bag.

        Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

        I love my new bag, my second from you guys. The last one lasted almost ten years. There were some design changes in the decade between purchases. I think shrinking pocket sizes is a mistake. And the clasp straps are a lot longer now (they almost get in the way). I don't see why that is.

          This was a gift for father's day and he needed a new bag for his Macbook Air and for traveling and this was perfect. He designed it on the website and it's even prettier in person.

            Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

            More Pro:
            – While it's not recommended, the Small actually fits my 15" Mac Book Pro and iPad.

            – The pocket behind the laptop sleeve somehow works better for me with papers, notes and files than any other bag I've owned.

            Other Cons:
            – IMHO the bottom straps are unnecessary, detracting from the overall look and still too long. Remove them or give the option to not have them on a custom built bag. Slightly annoying.
            – Was expecting the waxed canvas to be a bit bolder in it's look and feel. It's also a pet fur magnet. I'd order in a different material next time.

                This is the second bag that I have customized and given as a gift for high school graduation. I find out the colors of their chosen colleges, then customize the bags to match. It's a unique way of showing school spirit while supporting a local company. Both girls love their bags (Swarthmore & Howard), and they tell me people approach them and wonder why they can't find the same bag in the bookstore on campus.

                  This is a great bag overall. It did not disappoint, but one minor thing I would have changed if I could are the arrangement of the pockets/compartments, simply as a matter of personal taste.

                    Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

                    I give it 3 stars because of website acting sketchy, and for whatever reason, Timbuk2's shipping dept. decided to use an alternate form of the provided address and it took two weeks to receive instead of less than the week promised - frustrating to say the least). Also, unfortunatley the handle that is clearly displayed in all your pictures at the top outside of the bag was not included (one of the reasons this bag was picked). Makes use somewhat inconvenient, but otherwise style is nice and customizing looks better than I had anticipated. Plenty of room for all my stuff carried on a daily basis. (Now if CS would contact me direct to figure out the whole handle issue, I would definately be a happy camper).
