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:

      This bag is fantastic in every way. I chose to get waterproof material since we are in the PacNW. Sometimes waterproof material can be fragile and prone to tears but not so here. This waterproof material is fierce. My one and only request for change is please consider adding more waterproof options.

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        So Timbuk 2 may have done themselves a disservice. Normally, I buy bags on a regular basis because I'm still always looking for a better bag than the one I have; however, this bag is so perfect that I will only be buying another one if I destroy this one! It truly is the perfect bag. Customized to my own specifications I can carry my water bottle inside, store my computer and other items safely, and with all the organizational pouches it meets all my organizing needs. I have not had any interest in even looking at other bags since I received it and look forward to enjoying it for the next several years. So Timbuk 2, you did a great job on the bag but sadly, I won't be in any rush to buy another one until this one goes. If you need an order from me, send someone to rough up my bag!

        I use my bag everyday going back and forth to my business. I like it a lot more than my old computer bag becuase I designed the colors myself and it's not as bulky as what I had before.

          The small is the perfect size for a small person (5'1"). Other cyclists love the reflectiveness too.
