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 knew this was going to be well made, which was why I bought it, but I was still pleasantly surprised by how well it was put together. The workmanship was really above and beyond. I got mine so that the strap hits my right shoulder, because I have had problems with my left collar bone dislocating. It's literally the only messenger bag I've had in over a decade that is comfortable. The one handed cinch on the strap makes it dead easy to latch down.

        What I hadn't expected is the way the bag is designed, as it hangs, it hugs my body. It doesn't swing around, or flap when I run to catch a bus.

          Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

          Awesome bag by all means! But you guys need to provide 2 female's for the cross strap. One to be left on the front strap and another one to attach it to the back of the bag when not cycling. It's a very small thing that would make life so much easier...

              Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

              I have had several timbuk2 bags before and let me tell you they are the first brand i go to whenever i am looking to buy a new bag. The quality of their products is simply outstanding. This was the first bad i ordered customized and to be honest i really enjoy since I have more of a personal love for this new bag than for my older bags. Im an avid cyclist and for me nothing beats the comfort or convenience of these bags. The new updated strap resizing mechanism felt less superior to the old design but after some days of use it has really started to grow on me. To wrap this up, I use this bag everyday and feel weird walking around without it. It is now an extension of myself and I am happy to say that I am a proud Timbuk2 supporter.

                Ordered the bag and it was too small. Pics on the website are not too true size unless they are using a really small model to show bags off. Wanted to order next size up, but Timbuk2 decided to change out materials and now I can even pay to order the bag I want. Not happy at all with the bag or the company.

                This is my second classic messenger. Upgrdaed from XS to S as needed more space for my camera and lenses. Its the same great qaulity as my previous one, and althouugh the strap is now made from far more flexible webbing it is too short. The bag sits just above my hip with the strap at full length. Also have the camera insert which is great. All in all a good buy but wish the strap had a bit more lenght to it.
