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.

    Already Ripped

    Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

    This is a follow up to my last review. I've owned this bag for about a month now and so far it's very useful and still looks great. However, the front pocket which has the key hook has several small rips already. I have my keys in there and my bag is full almost all the time, pushing the keys against the outer layer of that pocket. Keys are not flat, they have edges. That pocket should have been somewhere else or the material needs to be thicker. Wish I've known that...

    Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

    I love this bag, and I love the company even more! My bag got lost in the mail originally (still has yet to arrive) so I contacted Timbuk2 customer service about the problem and they let me have a replacement, free of charge! So not only do they have amazing bags, but the customer service is way above par (they actually listen to you). Highly recommend this company to anyone who wants a good messenger bag!

            Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

            I've been waiting to get one of these for a long time. My final customized product came and it looked very nice. The quality seems to be good, nice material. I do noticed like other users that certain things have gotten thinner, like the strap. I compared to an older version and it was a lot thinner.

            My biggest issue with this is the attention to detail or the lack of it. The Timbuk2 logo is stitched on off center to the left. Material that has a horizontal pattern should be horizontal, not at an angle. Those are the little things that make a good product great. It's a little disappointing...I expected more from here...

            Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

            I'm not 100% sure if they've simply redesigned their bags, or if they build their small bags differently, but I'm a little bit disappointed in the bag I just received.

            My biggest complaint would be the strap. It's thinner, and feels like a cheaper material. Next up would be the new adjustment buckle, which has a tendency to catch and release, sending my bag down low when I least expect it.

            Next up is the inside, which is lacking the plentiful pockets and organizers my older bag came with. Again, not sure if it was because the new bag was smaller and couldn't fit them, although I don't see why they wouldn't fit, but my last bag had 3 zip up compartments on the outside of the Front pocket, and the insert had places to put pens, and multiple compartments that I made use of.

            I'm not necessarily sure what I want to complain about. My problem might be that the design of the bag has changed and been downgraded over the course of the last couple of years, or it could be that the website needs to better reflect the differences between small bags and large bags.

            I mostly use it for school when I bike to study rooms or classes from my dorm. Great thing is that it is easy to transfer things. Things that aren't so great is that I'm a bit OCD and I cannot handle when one side of the hook and loop is significantly weaker than the other side to open the bag. It drives me crazy.

              Love this bag but need to learn how to adjust the straps to make it smaller
              Love folding the corners
              Love the Velcro in addition to buckles
              Love the customizability of it (ie no one else has the same colors)
              Inside the bag its roomy; the water bottle holders make it a no brainier for the gym
              Various Apple products slid in easily in the center part and are protected from buffeting
              Lots of fun pockets for future use
