    Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

    Was skeptical at first for paying over $100 for a messenger bag (cause I'm a cheapo) but this one exceeds expectations. Perfect for what I need it to be: a low profile, durable, and attractive bag to hold my knick knacks and what's nots.

          Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

          I'd been looking for a daily commuting bag and after lots of searching I went for the dashboard to replace my trusty (but tired) messenger (also from Timbuk2). The bag is small (particularly when the laptop sleeve is in), it is hard to open the buckles (as they are hidden under the main flap), the shoulder strap shortening arrangement is terrible (bring back the simplicity of the messenger) and finally the strap falls off the shoulder too easily. Shipping this bag to the UK was expensive and complicated- dealing with UPS a real hassle. I am sad because I used to be a real advocate for timbuk2 and after this just feel burnt.

            Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

            This is my first Timbuk2 bag, and I must say that I absolutely love it. It's beautiful, well-made, and seems like it will last a long, long time.

            The primary reason I chose this bag is for the removable laptop sleeve, and it does not disappoint. The sleeve is unbelievably well made - just like the rest of the bag. The SMALL version easily fits my new Dell XPS 13 (2015 version) along with the power cable and a Western Digital Passport.

            Overall I would highly recommend this bag, but I do have a few minor gripes and some suggestion for improvement:

            The strap is not long enough for someone over 6'2". I'm 6'4" and the bag will not comfortably rest on my side / hip. It remains on my back, where it doesn't feel as comfortable. Since the strap is easily adjustable I don't understand why it wasn't made longer - it can always be adjusted for a shorter person, it can't be magically lengthened for a taller one.

            There is plenty of room for additional compartments, and they are sorely needed. The external pocket is nice for a cell phone (though it's a little snug on my Nexus 6), but there is no other external storage at all. Zip-pockets on the sides (under the strap attachments) would be nice. The inner compartment is great, but again it is very small. Extending it to be the length of the entire bag would be helpful.

            The water bottle holder inside the bag is completely unusable on anything larger than a disposable plastic water bottle. Even that is a tight squeeze when the laptop / charger are in there.

              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.

                  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.
