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.

    Well organized space with plenty of well-placed storage pockets. It's roomy but not bulky. Adjustable strap allows for easy, hands-free carrying. Awesome bag.

          I have previously used a Timbuk2 back pack for packing my laptop and riding my bike, but with my new job, I drive to work and I carry lots of files. My new, larger laptop and my numerous files and books fit very well, comfortably on my back to carry and I can open the flap and access them easily. The adjustable strap is perfect.

          Amazing bag of high quality stitching and material!

          This has become my every use bag in no time!

          Only issue I have with the bag is that the inside drink pockets are a bit on the small side and are thus very difficult to put a bigger can in than the standard 33cl coca cola can. And the strap could have been another 10cm longer to allow for taller people (1m90)

          Excellent bag, wish the changes were listed--and/or there were options if you would like more compartments, but overall very happy with the bag.

            Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

            I use this bag for all of my every day carry items. I purchased the small messenger since I knew it would hold my essentials. I enjoyed creating the bag with colors that appealed to me, the option of adding the laptop attachment as well as the bottle holders made me feel like I had a unique bag. I love how there are many pockets for organization without sacrificing room.

            I was only disappointed when I realized that the bag didn't come with a strap with padding. I understood that there was an option for a nice thick shoulder pad, but I assumed that they at least came with a generic one. Still, I am quite pleased with my purchase and recommended the product to my girlfriend. Not only did she purchase one, but her mother and sister as well. Timbuk 2 should send me a padded strap as commission for the business I sent their way.

            Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

            Comparison to previous model:
            - strap is too thin (cutting/theft prevention) and looks flimsy
            - i liked the larger Inside bags
            - the side bits were straight/level and now the sides are higher and get bent.
            + bottle holder
            + nice mAterial
            + Foto Insert (however, Zipper is unnecessary) for "small equipment" (large
            needs separate bag

            I Hope the reflecting cord is durable and doesn't tear off..

            Thanks!

            I put it away because I thought I was ordering something I could use as a purse, a size extra small? It is huge and I have a battle every time I open it. If I use it for a purse at church and it is too loud when I fight to open it!
