    Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

    When I did the "device fit guide", it said my 13" Macbook Air wouldn't fit, even though it says it will right in the description. That was kind of confusing. I read a few reviews and people said that it fit so I went for it. It is a tight fit, but it will fit in the laptop section.

    Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

    I wanted a nice, durable, lightweight and attractive bag that could transport my MacBook air safely, and that's exactly what I got. The only drawback is the main compartment is very small and narrow, and seems to only be wide enough for notebooks, papers, files and the like. I don't want or need so much room that I'd switch to a traditional Timbuk 2 computer messenger, but a tiny bit more room would be perfect.

    Now with the addition of this bag, I have a matched set: The Express mini messenger, the Moraga shoulder bag pannier, and the Expressway laptop bag.

    Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

    I came across the Timbuk2 Expressway Messenger Bag in Granite while looking at Timbuk2s YouTube channel. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it and ordered it that same day and had it overnighted to me. I was so happy to get it this morning and switch my old bag out for this new one. The bag is good quality (what else can you expect from Timbuk2?) it has a good amount of room without being bulky and cavernous. I love the nice soft padded back zip pocket that fits my MacBook Air 13" very nicely and keeps it safe and snug. The only "cons" if you can really call them that is Im not a big fan of the Velcro flap pocket it can be a tid bit loud wish there was a zipper or magnets instead. I also wish it had a little more pink details to it love the gray and pink it looks so pretty together. Other than that this bag is amazing!! Think this is my 4th purchase from Timbuk2 and defiantly not my last.

    Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

    Useful for carrying laptop and work-related items but also eliminates the need to carry a purse. This bag is stylish! I love that it is durable and roomy enough to carry my drink container and personal items too. I wish it had a grab handle because I am always on the run and sometimes want to grab and go.

      Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

      I've got kind of a bag fetish...and I love Timbuk2 bags. I was in the market for a bag I could use everyday - not too big, but would fit all my work stuff, iPad or small laptop and some extras. This bag is simply perfect. It's super sturdy, the fabric is great (I got the granite color) and the interior polka dot lining is adorable. It has great pink highlights on it (zipper and stitching), giving it some nice feminine touches. I get compliments on this bag all the time and hope Timbuk2 continues to make more bag options in this size/style.

      This bag is so perfect that it has made me forget my bag fetish. I can proudly say I am now in a monogamous relationship with one bag and don't feel the need to cheat with any other bag in my closet. Oh, Expressway Messenger...you had me at vel-cro.

      Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

      This bag is roomier than I expected, which is a good surprise. It is more streamlined than the classic Timbuk2 messenger bag, which makes it better for work and school. It's missing the top handle, which is a great feature but not a deal breaker for me. I have a small messenger bag that has traveled to China and Scotland as a daily "pack." It is terrific, and it started me on the path of being Timbuk2 fan. This is a good one

          Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

          This is a perfect little commuting bag. It is compact and lightweight, but perfectly fits my MacBook Air (13"). The organization of the inner compartments is functional and thoughtful. I usually prefer zipper closures for their security, but this Velcro closure is so secure that I don't worry at all. The bag feels well made, maintains its structure, and is comfortable to carry. I got the indigo color because it was on sale, and the product was true to the pictures online. It's more of a casual look, but a respectable casual. Overall, I would buy this bag again in a heartbeat.

          Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

          Love the soft, narrow strap. I also like that you don't have to open velcro to get computer - great for meetings and air travel. It's narrow and compact, but holds everything I need. Only con is the light gray fabric is getting stained blue from my jeans rubbing against it.

          Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

          I love the look of this bag! It fits my laptop perfecty and a lunch for work, but it's not big enough for too much else. I sometimes like to bring a change of clothes with me and it's not always big enough for that and every thing else. It's very durable and really had I read the specs of it, I could have figured it out:). It is very comfortable to ride with, too.
