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.

    Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

    I bought a customized bag for my husband, to replace his cherished bag from another company that was falling apart. The colors and textures I chose were exactly what I expected. I was debating between medium and large. I chose medium and it's just the right fit for his computer and the few other things he travels with. I like his bag so much, I'm looking for a reason to buy one for myself.

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        My son uses this bag to carry his gargantuan binder to/from middle school. He'd been eyeing the Timbuk2 bags for a long time, and his grandmother got this one for him as a Christmas gift. I like it because it fully contains/covers his binder from the weather. He likes it because it's so cool looking and comfortable to carry (we got the optional strap pad, too) - and because he got to custom-design it!

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        My only real complaint is that it's slightly smaller than the bag it's replaceing and the strap slips when locked.
        Otherwise it feels very solid with several interior pockets, and the laptop pouch feels very secure.

              Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

              The speed of manufacture and delivery was amazing. The bag is great--I was worried that the colors would be more neon-y in person than on the website but they were perfect. I loved all the options. We have purchased many Timbuk2 bags and will continue to be loyal customers. I bought this bag for my partner and it's perfect. I would like a new one as well but I am not in love with any of the custom color choices.

              Inside zipper pockets too small to fit wallet!

              Shoulder strap length is on the short side.

              New more flexible strap is good.

                Bought this bag for our son who wanted custom colours. We had a question so phoned customer services in the US . Excellent customer service and we were organized with the bag we wanted after one e mail. The bag was made and delivered to UK in a short time frame- it made it for Christmas!
                Our son loves the bag and uses it on his daily commute in Edinburgh. It's eye catching and very practical he says - and he is a real fusspot!
