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:

Compared to my prior Timbuk2 laptop bags, this has no structure and far fewer compartments. It's just a big, floppy bag. Very disappointing step backwards.

      Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

      Use it for commuting with my laptop. Good amount of pockets, more than I had expected. Wish that the strap pad was included instead of a pricey add-on. Love that I can customize colors -- hard to find a cool commuter bag that isn't boring! Quality seems excellent. I like that the strap is easy to adjust.

        I love my bag. I like that I was finally able to find a laptop bag that I liked. I designed it on your website and absolutely love it! I have already shared your website information with several friends who may be in the market to design bags for themselves or as gifts for others.

          Great bag. Takes a while to get to you, since it's custom made. I've owned several Timbuk2 bags over the last 15 years (none of which I've managed to kill, even with years of daily use), it amazes me how they keep finding new ways to improve there bags.

            A great product for a professional who wants to step away from either a backpack or a formal briefcase. Being able to design your own look is excellent, and makes me love it even more.
            I wish the handle was situated closer to the front or the actual top of the front flap. It does tend to pull the fabric a bit when I carry it by the handle.
            But that being said, it is wonderful!!!

            Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

            I got this with the camera insert, and have found the combination to be awesome. When I take my camera, not only do I get the great padding for my camera, and a place to safely put both it and my lens, but a bunch of smaller compartments that perfectly fit my iPad mini, eternal hard drive, and moleskine. Even with the insert in, there is room for my Macbook Air 13" and a few files and papers.

            The only downside is that I hate that velcro noise. As soon as I can figure out a way to silence that, this will be a full 5 star review. Everyone comments on how cool it looks, and I am surprised by how much I like the top handle.

            Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

            It's a beautifully made bag, with a lot of attention to detail, which is why the two things that I don't like about it are so frustrating: 1) the inner pockets for the laptop/tablet get in the way of the inner pocket for the water bottle, so you can't use both at once. If I had known that, I wouldn't have paid extra for what is now, really, a useless water bottle holder. 2) the Velcro that secures the flap of the bag has the hook side facing out, instead of on the inside of the bag's flap, and a bit of it alway sticks out below the edge of the flap, so the bag is guaranteed to ruin EVERY fabric item it comes in contact with. I've already snagged sweaters, scarves, upholstery, etc. Seriously, this is so stupid and annoying it makes me kind of hate a bag I would otherwise love. Also, the strap could be a little longer--it's not a huge issue for me because I'm only 5'7", but taller people would be sad.
