Additionally, it has external water bottle pockets and a silly amount of internal organization for pens, mice, cords, and bades, and our beleoved red key fob. Thou shall never dig for thy keys or be last through the security line again.

    Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

    I have to travel 50% of the year for my job and is excellent for an all in one travel bag for hauling my laptop and many assorted pieces of electronics with me.

    Being able to customize my bag was the real selling point though.

    Now that they have seen it in action I have two co-workers that are looking to get their own bags now.

    The only CON/Suggestion I would have is that if you know you are going to be loading this down with books/laptop or other gear is to go ahead and get the deluxe shoulder strap it makes the long walk across the airport a lot more comfortable.

    Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

    This was a graduation gift for my son to house his new gaming laptop, and carry all of his essentials.
    I really liked the lifetime guarantee because he's just starting out, and this bag will go with him to college and beyond. It holds all of his gear - lots of storage! Although it is almost too big...
    We live in a rain friendly state, so the side flaps are great. I got it with a reflective panel, so it's useful day or night. He walks and/or bikes everywhere and the bag travels well. Took it with us to Mexico, went through TSA with no problems. Overall, a great product.

    Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

    I want to like the bag but after using backpacks for a long time, I find the lack of external pockets a big limitation. Constantly have to open bag or reach in while closed and fumble around. The one big outside pocket is meant for hanging on the roller bag handle (it has velcro on the bottom, hope that doesn't open and spill my stuff). but the top of the pocket has no way to close securely for things like passports, tickets.
    The one other pocket is a mesh bottle holder. How can you not have a phone pocket on the outside that is padded? I would put a pocket or two on the flap.
    Finally, I selected this based on my laptop size, but later realized that with the extra large battery I use on my PC, the laptop case just barely zips closed.

      Bought a medium sized customized commute bag at a great discount. The laptop compartment fits 15.6" HP Envy laptop perfectly. The bag has a nice feel and touch to it. Hope it is durable enough.

        Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

        Thank you to the folks at Timbuk2. Being able to create my own quality custom messenger bag was an awesome experience. It took me a few hours on your easy to use bag creation site as I fine tuned my perfect color combination, but it was worth it. Then in about 2 weeks after my creation was submitted, I received the bag and was completely amazed at what was born. The contstruction and quality is top notch. This was my first bag and I can truly say I am a devoted fan of your products. I use my bag for business trips, daily office visits, customer visits and it works perfect every time. It's also able to carry everything I need and you never have to worry about running out of pockets and places to put things. The furry cell phone pockets are a truly nice touch. :) Plus it's also very sylish and durable. Thanks again!

          My first purchase from Timbuk2 and so glad I went with the custom colors. It's personal and love the stylish colors and patterns I was able to pick from. This bag has replaced my roller computer bag. I love all the pockets, it's lightweight and durable.

          I did add the shoulder pad to my purchase, and it helps immensely.

            Probably hands down the best work bag I've ever had. Love how light weight it is, probably half the weight of my last bag with everything in it. Use it to haul a laptop, backup tapes, iPad, Kindle, and other stuff to work on a daily basis. Everything seems to be protected well.

            Two bag features I love the best are how you can get to all of your electronics without opening the flap, which saves time. Lastly, the Napoleon pocket is also awesome for getting to things like keys without having to open the bag.

              Comments about Custom Commute Laptop Messenger Bag:

              I finally broke down and customized a Timbuk2 Commute, and I will never understand why it took me so long to build the perfect bag. And trust me, I have tried dozens of others - I always come back to Timbuk2. First, the customized Commute is simply gorgeous, because I could choose fresh, professional, timeless colors that reflect the fact that I care about presentation but also want something that will last and that will look good in the Board room. Second, I can carry my entire office with me wherever I go, and I DO! There are times that I have two laptops, an iPad, notebooks, files, chargers and cables, an umbrella, water, lunch AND MORE, the bag handles it all like a pro. It doesn't feel heavy or unwieldy, and thanks to the Deluxe Strap Pad, wearing the bag feels balanced and super comfortable. Even fully loaded, when I get in my zone and I'm walking around the work campus or through the city, I nearly forget that I'm wearing it. Great organization but not so many pockets that it becomes ridiculous to remember where you put stuff. Very roomy and durable - it's a substantive bag that is also lightweight. I don't know how anyone lives without the Napoleon pocket, which is my day-to-day lifesaver. And I love that I could customize just about every inch of this bag to make it look cool and styish yet still very professional. BONUS - great weather protection for all of your stuff thanks to the fold-in flaps that velcro shut at the top of the bag. I live in Seattle, where wet weather is a given. You learn quickly here to buy shoes, hoodies and gear that can adapt to the seasons. This bag will fit right in. I think I have found my bag for life!
