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:

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.

        Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

        I wanted a minimalist commuter bag, so I configured a small laptop bag for a MacBook Air 13". This is the perfect size for my purposes. This is my second timbuk2 bag---the other is a custom large commuter laptop---and I couldn't be happier. The quality of construction and workmanship is evident in every stitch. Build your own bag---or two---you won't be disappointed.

          Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

          Love it's weight and size. I needed a cross body bag for walking errands around downtown. The backpack I used before was comfortable but had to be taken off every time I paid for something.
          Wish the strap could be made out of the body fabric so it would look a bit dressier. And I find the clips very hard to open and close so I mostly don't use them. Thinking maybe they would get easier with use.

          It's great! Maybe a little bigger than I needed, but that's not the worst thing ever. I love it, it's an awesome bag. As far as the strap goes, it could come with a strap pad for the price that you pay for the bag. Just sayin.

          Have to say I was a bit disappointed after I started using the new Messenger bag. I've had a Messenger bag for 3 years but a new computer was so large that it wouldn't fit. New bag seems formless and has so many fewer pockets and zipped sections.
