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:

      I love my bag, however there are a couple of things you need to be aware of that I took for granted. When you customize your bag and DONT pick a strap pad color you don't get one at all. Pretty disappointing since when loaded it requires one. Also no bottle holders inside which are an option and not standard "in the custom bag"
      I would also suggest that you order the size carefully, I went with the large intending on using it for my daily commute but it's just not appropriate. It too big, awesome non the less for my business trips but I will buy another one (small) for daily use, with all the straps, pockets etc.
      PS I love the Napoleon pocket for travel documents without opening the bag.

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        I was so excited about replacing my generic messenger bag that I use every day with this one.
        The bag is attractive, bright and sturdy. MAJOR drawback is
        that the strap is not long enough to comfortably wear bag across body. In addition, it's hard to open the Velcro closure with one hand, which is impractical and quite
        noisy. This bag is a costly disappointment.

          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 am a college student (again) and haven't managed to blow out this bag with all of my books, computer and other stuff needed for class. Trust me, I pack this bag full and it is holding out just fine. The adjustable strap is quick to adjust and holds quite well, the bag itself has a lot of internal room for large textbooks and binders and I really like the fact that this bag is made in the U.S.
              The only con I have is that the internal water bottle holder is too small in diameter, if it would hold a standard Nalgene bottle this bag would be perfect. Buy this bag, it is worth it!
