    Comments about D-Lux Laptop Bondage Messenger Bag:

    I use this bag for commuting 10-15 miles per day via bicycle or moped. Its padded strap plus a cross-torso strap to balance load make it so comfortable - and ensures I don't have to worry about it sliding to my side while riding. I haven't had a bad experience with it yet, honestly. It's the best bag I've owned!

      Comments about D-Lux Laptop Bondage Messenger Bag:

      This bag is exactly what I want for something to carry my computer and notebooks that I use at work. The all black is professional looking enough to pass for any environment. I've had a Timbuk2 messenger bag for about five years now and this is my second one. I liked the original bag that I had, but the improvements that Timbuk2 has made over the last few years are evident in the design features of this bag. Sometimes you wonder if companies use their own products -- in this case, it's clear that Timbuk2 does use their own products because they've worked out the kinks that only frequent users would notice.

      A potentially useful note is that my computer is slightly larger than suggested for the medium bag -- the true height dimension is ~1" too big, but the computer still fits. There's probably still a small amount of wiggle room, but not much, so I wouldn't push it farther than 1".

        Comments about D-Lux Laptop Bondage Messenger Bag:

        Yesterday was the first time I took the bag to the grocery store by bicycle. It worked great. This sturdy bag held perfectly. It stayed firmly and stably strapped to my back while riding and holding my approximately 10 pound bag of groceries, including a dozen eggs inside.

        There are plenty of zippered pockets in the bag that will keep my belongings secure.

        I take the bus, walk and/or ride a bike wherever I go and am always carrying something; and usually a fairly heavy load. I'm sure that I'll get many years of heavy duty use out of this bag.

            Comments about D-Lux Laptop Bondage Messenger Bag:

            This is a very well designed product, the pockets are numerous and easily accessible. It is a very nicely crafted bag with plenty of room but not oversized for the average professional with a laptop and or tablet. Waterproof lining really works, I live in Washington state where that is essential!

                Bought this bag to fit a laptop and a large Intuos Pro tablet. There aren't very many bags out there that fit a 12"x19" tablet, but this one does! It does peek out a little at the top, but the flap closes nicely without having to extend the straps on the closures. Very happy with this purchase and love love love all the pockets! Thanks for making such a great bag.

                  I received the bag as a gift. I have a Macbook Pro 13' and it fits perfectly with room for a few school books. Great quality and I would definitely buy again. I will buy turning to Timbuktu for all our bag needs in the future.

                    My son was so pleased with his Timbuk2 messenger bag on Christmas morning! The strap had broken on his old bag and he said he was going to buy a new bag after Christmas. So, Mom did good at guessing what to get him for Christmas. But, the best part was, he was really impressed with all the features of the Timbuk2 bag, as was I. Thank you so much for such a quality product!
