    Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

    This bag is a replacement for Timbuk2 Commute 2.0, I got back in early 2009. Times changes and laptop requirements as well. It fits perfectly for a MBA 13".

    I also got a Super Strap Pad but so far I can't figure out how to remove the strap that comes with the bag. May e I am missing something but I wish the website had a remark of the strap incompatibility with specific models

    Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

    This bag serves a dual purpose. In the past I carried a briefcase for my business documents, laptop, etc. I had a separate bag for my personal items such as cell phones, keys, sun glasses, reading glasses, daily meds, cologne, etc. My new Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag takes care of all of this by itself. The added benefit is the removable laptop sleeve. It gives me extra space in the bag when I don't need to carry my laptop and allows me to take my laptop by itself when I want.

      Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

      The size small is an excellent minimalist bag to hold my 13" Asus Zenbook, charger, and rain jacket. I was able to eliminate noise with Velcro silencers. just wish the internal sleeve was zippered, as opening the internal flap within the bag is a bit of a hindrance.

      Not worth the Price, Missing some key TIMBUK2 Features

      Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

      Bag has only two small zippered compartments. With keys, cell phone, wallet, tablet, headphones, etc. There were simply not enough pockets. Also disappointed as they had no silencing strip (as with TSA laptop bag) for the Velcro. It is loud...very loud.

      Had been a huge TIMBUK2 fan, but will obviously need to be more discerning in my purchases.

        Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

        I have been looking at Timbuk2 for a long time and this bag came on my radar. It is perfect for holding my laptop, kindle, and Ipad. I like the pull out sleeve for the ipad! So you got options if you want to put more stuff in it. I didn't get anything flashy just the basic blue. I tend to go with the stuff that stands the test of time and fashion.

          I like everything about this bag except the placement of the top handle. When I grab a bag it needs to be a centered handle.

              Comments about Dashboard Laptop Messenger Bag:

              Love this bag. I recently got this because my Large classic was too big for daily use.

              This is used mainly to accommodate my 13" laptop and daily necessities like wallet, keys, book, a few documents, etc. I love that this bag is small, comfortable, and fits what I need on the go.
              I use it both for work and rec.

              I throw it around a bit and like the other ones I've owned, its durable and has managed to stay clean.
              Highly recommend for daily/professional use if you have little to carry but still want to keep things like your laptop secure.

                Amazing bag!! I use it to go to work, I actually hate backpacks so this messenger bag was the deal. It's really easy to uso and even though I carry my laptop everyday it's very easy to commute with it inside this bag!

                What's this all about?

                More gadget friendly than a Classic Messenger bag, but not as techie as a Command or Commute Messenger, the Dashboard messenger will happily carry your laptop, iPad, and phone without looking like its trying. Its low-profile look works well in and out of the office and quick-access pocketing makes it easy to do your thing.
