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:

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.

      Comments about Custom Classic Laptop Messenger Bag:

      I loved designing my own unique bag and proudly wear it around campus. Going back to college at 50+ with my Timbuk2 over my shoulders, puts a smile on my face. It's just different enough to show off my own style and carry those heavy textbooks with no problem. It's a beautiful bag, very well made and I'd like to think that the way I customized it is just the best :)
      It's comfortable, even when you're not 22 anymore. I would have appreciated a longer strap, because of the way I prefer wearing it (cross-body, sitting low on my hip, but it's not a reason not to buy it again. What I absolutely DO need, are silencers. Not to silence the sound, but to prevent the Velcro sticking to everything when I open the bag, or carry it from my desk to a different one. I have had the Velcro attacking my tights, my sweaters, and jacket. The result isn't pretty. On the positive side, the Velcro is top notch. Would I buy again if I somehow lost this bag (won't happen, I am pretty attached to this bag, velcro and all)...YES!!! Tonight. Not tomorrow.

        If I was to lose and have to replace this bag, next time I would get a medium as the small is pretty small. Size is kinda more like a large purse. Great features and well made though!

            Already Ripped

            Verified Reviewer

            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...
