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:

Got to design this as a birthday gift, to wear during commuting into the city for graduate school. I can't say enough great things about the quality, attractiveness and usefulness. So much fun to design my own bag. I've gotten great compliments on it as well.

    Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

    For over a year my partner had been looking for a bag to take her laptop to work. I decided I would buy her one for a present. I looked online everywhere. It had to be big enough for a 13" MacBook Air, but not too big. And it had to look just so. Being able to custom design a bag just for her was perfect. Thank you! She LOVES it.

          I use it for intercontinental trips, as well as for my day trips. High quality, durable, waterproof. But! Mine came with a minor error; one of the strap locks was sewn upside down. I had to cut the strap out and tried to fix myself! I wish I did not have that problem.

          Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

          I have the medium bag. It's a great bag. What I don't like about it however is the water bottle holder I paid extra for is reticulum sly small and not useable for my normal sized stainless steel water bottle. I also seriously dislike the gigantic Velcro straps on the inside face of the bag. I was not aware they came with the bag. They will just get covered in dog hair and other junk. Plus they are super duper duper strong so they are super duper duper loud anytime I want to get in the bag. My solution was to go to the hardware store and buy velcroe straps, not remove the sticky back cover and put it on top of the Velcro, essentially velcroing it shut, and the top flap now can't velcroe sit. It is to me one the worst design ideas ever. I may not have bought the bag if I knew it existed.
          But all the other parts of the bag are great. It's a great size to go to work and then go somewhere else after.
          I attached a caribeener onto the handle to attach to by bike rack...

            Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

            My college-bound son wanted one of these bags for a Christmas present. I let him create his own design and then I purchased it and put it under the tree. We were both very disappointed when he open it and "tried it on". The shoulder strap length is too short for a young man of 6 feet 5 inches to wear comfortably; it sits way too high on his torso! If you get to customize the bag, (i.e left or right handed) I think the strap length should also be able to be customized. We called the company and they were going to send out an "extra length of strap" that we could get a local luggage shop to "add on" to the original length. The extra piece did not come in the mail, extra handles did. After contacting Timbuk2 for a second time, I was assured that I would get the right piece so I could fix the problem myself, have not received anything yet. It is now past the second week of January and my son can still not use his Christmas gift! This bag was a waste of money because it is just sitting in his room collecting dust.
