Comments about D-Lux Laptop Racing Stripe Messenger Bag:

I purchased this bag to double as my work and school bag.
I work at an architecture firm and currently in grad school.

I live in New York City and BMW(bike metro walking) is the most convenient method of travel.

I used to use backpacks because of the extra room compared to other messenger bags or briefs. However, it was too difficult to put in or take out things from the bag.
I saw that this bag was sufficiently large and the Napoleon pocket really got me as it would be perfect for taking out metro card.
This bag looked large enough to handle my work docs(multiple pages of architecture plans) and grad school books(very thick and heavy) and my 15inch MacBook.

Overall I am so happy with the bag because it does exactly what I wanted.

I do have few possible improvement ideas:
Dedicated water bottle holder pockets (yes I like reusing bottles)
Maybe spread out the pockets from the center. Once I put my keys the two other pockets become useless.
Compression straps at the bottom of the bag would be awesome
Also the convenient easy release buckles poke the side of my body
Strap pads are too narrow and sort of digs in

Everything else are all cool.
Actually everything is cool but hope these changes happen in the future.

I love the bag.

    This is perfect for what I was looking for. It has just enough room and worked very well for the 16 hour road trip that I completed. It has just the right amount of room for all the tech goods that I needed. Everything was within reach and had it's own place.

    Comments about D-Lux Laptop Racing Stripe Messenger Bag:

    Hands down the best bag I've owned. I was looking for something in a messanger style that would sit a little higher on my back and this fit the bill perfectly. As a grad student, I usually have a little but of everything (including but not limited to the kitchen sink) shoved in my bag, and this accommodates it all - books, iPad, both laptops (including one that has a secondary sleeve case) without taking up exorbitant amounts of room during my bus commute. It distributes weight very nicely and the strap is a great length (and I am not a small person). The waterproof zipper at the back is probably my favorite feature and makes gaining access to the bag super simple (and makes me not miss having an external pocket at all). Additionally, I wear a lot of sweaters when I teach, and I haven't noticed any increase in pilling or damage to my sweaters, probably in part due to the fabulous strap pad. It does take some time to get broken in - it was fairly stiff and a little uncomfortable for about a week, but once you give it some time and have the strap adjusted nicely, it's really a superb backpack.

      Comments about D-Lux Laptop Racing Stripe Messenger Bag:

      I use this bag for commuting around my college campus. This bag is excellent. I am at campus all day and have no time to go to my dorm, but it carries everything I need.
      The tablet compartment is designed for an iPad so it is a tight fit for other tablets. It is even tight for the iPad if you have a larger case on it. My laptop fits a little small in the sleeve, but it doesn't move around much.
      The shoulder strap is not very well padded, but the strap length adjustment system is a pretty good design. However, be careful with it because it will come undone if you bump the release to hard with something.
      It is extremely roomy, I bought the medium thinking I would have to streamline what I took to class, but the opposite was true. If I were to buy it again I'd probably go for the small. I'm telling you, it is roomy. The small pockets on the inside of the bag are slightly disappointing but with the amount of room in the rest of the bag you could easily just carry a pencil bag(etc.) instead of putting things in the pockets.
      The fabric and seams are rock solid. I've only had the bag for a month or so, but nothing has started to give in. Very high quality materials.
      Absolutely love the back zipper! The most ingenues idea ever.
      Strongly recommend this bag.

        I have a 15 minute walk to work, up and down some decent hills, in the Pacific NW where we get the occasional rain. Love the cam buckle that cinches it tight so it isn't banging around while walking. Lots of room for my stuff and being waterproof is great.

          Closing straps are ended at the bottom of front side.
          But I think it is better they are ended at back side to adjust especially stuffings are few.

            I got this bag and it came with a bad seam on the bottom a friend noticed the day I got it and brought it to work. Contacted Timbuk 2, label sent and off it went back. It has been about 2 weeks and I still don't have a replacement, although it's apparently shipped. I am concerned with these "canned" bags and there quality as they are made overseas. There custom bags are top notch. Time will tell with this one....
