    Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

    This is it...the perfect work bag. It carries my laptop,shoes and my stuff and I walk almost everywhere. I had resisted Timbuk2 as they are the ubiquitous student bag in Boston and as a over 50 woman professor I didn't want to look like my students. The Mojave Dashboard changed my mind about Timbuk2 and fits the bill perfectly... Professional, weather proof, roomy and comfortable. Nicely stylish,it lacks the middle stripe of the typical Timbuk2 and the contrasting flap adds to the subtlety of the bag. Love the zipper pouch inside. Easy to use buckles. I "turned off" the vertical velceo strip for the flap using another 2 inch velcro strip which makes it quieter to open. I also added a key leash. Would and have recommended this bag. I'd love to see this as a custom bag or other similar professional materials.

      Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

      It was between this and the Classic...just liked the cut of the Dashboard a bit more....to me, the Dashboard has more of an edge where the Classic is more on function and less on design...if that makes sense???

      I like the removable tech sleeve to allow for a bigger mouth when the sleeve is not necessary.

      Improvements could be: there's a front pocket under the flap that I like to throw keys in...with gravity on your side this is great, when I throw it open and it leans on it's side sometimes the keys work themselves out - a bit of velcro here would be great...I find any pocket that is not velcro or zipper is basically useless - there is one zipper outer pocket on the flap (great for my Kindle Paper White and phone - would like a bit of velcro here too as a poor man's audio alarm to ward off any tampering). And there is one medium sized zipper pocket inside - very useful. And a bunch of useless open mini-pockets inside, as well.

      I use it mainly to and fro work, but have employed it as an overnight, daytime picnic, and regular biker's messenger bag (even without the stabalizing strap, it was very comfortable).

      I love the craftsmanship and am hoping to have a long history with it! Good luck with you Timbuk2!

              The bag is perfect: it has a roomy compartment but not too big (forcing you not to overload and strain your back) with just enough pockets and compartments for pens, cards, mouse, phone, etc. and the ingenious removable sleeve (so you can leave your bag and just carry just your laptop and iPad safely to a quick meeting).

              Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

              I used the bag for commuting to work and regular air travel. its a great size for short trips but don't expect more than a laptop, couple folders and some bare essentials. I need to use a larger bag for long trips or serious commutes when I need to pack a rain shell or any stuff other than papers. The soft fabric on the top flap that makes the bag look great is unfortunately not designed for active use. it pills like a cheap sweater and looks poor after just a few days. I can no longer use it for air travel because it just looks shabby.
