      Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

      This was the 8th and last timbuk2 bag I will buy. Timbuk2 officially could care less about your laptop. This bag has zero padding ZERO its basically a fabric compartment. I know they try to save on bulk but I use these bags to protect and carry my bag. This bag is uncomfortable to carry! So far 7 out of 8 bags have been useless. I have tried all styles and all of them seem to be less about protection and comfort and more about style. I have the original commute messing orange and yellow 2006 2007 vintage… that bag still beats all the other bags. Please go back to making actual padded bags.

      Don't buy this bag if you want any protection for your laptop.

        I bought this bag for Christmas and first used it to transport my Macbook Pro on a flight cross-country. My laptop, Wacom pad and stylus, power cord and misc. essentials all fit, with room to spare. It's an all-around great-looking messenger bag.

          Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

          Even though it is a laptop bag, I still didn't had the chance to try to carry my laptop in it, but I used it to carry my books and some papers on almost a daily basis. I never liked traveling around carrying a bag but this one doesn't bother me at all, I think because it is comfortable and stylish.

            I was looking for a smaller bag and found this. The fabric and stitching are beautiful with excellent quality. There are plenty of pockets to hold small items. The laptop and iPad holder do seem a bit bulky and have taken them out.

            This is an excellent bag proudly wearing the Timbuk2 name.

              Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

              I love the Timbuk2 brand, but this bag just hasn't quite worked out as I'd hoped. I was looking for a reasonable size computer bag for work and liked the sophisticated look of the gray wool flap. It is a well constructed bag, but unfortunately the computer sleeve is quite bulky and very stiff. Having the large strap to keep it in place is unnecessary in this small a bag and just adds more bulk. Beware, the large swatch of velcro will loudly announce your arrival so sneaking into a class or meeting unnoticed is impossible. Also, it would be nice to have the option of removing the pad on the shoulder strap because you can't really put enough in the bag to make it that heavy and the pad makes carrying it on your shoulder quite awkward. I also think the bag would function much better if the straps were anchored a bit more towards the back side of the bag. As they are, the bag tends to bend away from your body, making it awkward to carry. I suppose the sort of U shaped front adds a little protection to the interior when the flap is down, but it makes it very difficult to reach for things in the bag while you're wearing it because it doesn't fully open so it isn't very convenient for travel. Lastly, the gray wool material on the flap starting pilling after the first use, seriously detracting from the sophisticated look, and if you wear it slung over your right shoulder, the pocket in the flap is inaccessible.

                This is my second Timbuk2 Bag - I have a Custom bag just for Air travel (3 to 4 times a month) - and I purchased this bag for the short commute from home to office only (to leave my Custom Bag for Air Travel only). I love both bags and transport my 15" laptop and iPad to files to books and files - I highly recommend Timbuk2 to anyone and everyone - best bags out there.

                  I bought this bag for my son to take his computer back and forth to school as well as for airline travel. This bag is well made, comfortable, stylish and roomy enough to hold many other items in addition to his computer, iPad and phone. We will definitely purchase from Timbuk2 in the future!

                    My laptop (MacBook Air) easily fits in the padded insert. And there's room for everything else I carry on a daily basis: keys, sunglasses, wallet, phone, charging cable, etc. I'm actually glad there's not a ton of extra room in the bag, because as it is now, it doesn't take up much space on the train. Highly recommended.

                      I might be emotionally attached to the bag. I use it daily to carry my laptop to work (as well as makeup bag, books, pens, and other random objects). Its casual enough that I can wear it on the weekends, but not so casual that I feel out of place at the corporate office. The strap is nice and thick so it does not cut into my shoulder. I love the little outside pocket, it is a very convenient spot for a phone. Overall a great product.

                        It's a nice laptop bag. The bag itself comes with a detachable laptop sleeve so you don't have a purchase one. The bottom portion of the bag can get kind of flat if you don't put a lot of things in it other than your laptop. Beside that slight flaw, the bag is nice and durable and pretty light.
