    Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

    This bag has been perfect for plane and train commuting! There are so many pockets of all different sizes, and the bag itself is very sleek. I love the cup holder and the double Velcro closure. Gets a little bulky and hard to close if there is stuff in all the pockets, but that's to be expected. Great bag for my commute around a big city!

          Just wanted to be clear that a Macbook Air 13 inch fits into the back computer compartment with PLENTY of room despite the fact that the device guide says otherwise.

          I purchased this bag for a trip and then planned to use it as my every day office bag. The first day i used it I was wearing a black sweater. The back of the bag is now stained black and looks terrble.

            Love this beautiful little bag. It's got great style. The grey and the little pink trim is very pretty. It's not too big, but fits my 13 inch Apple easily as well as a bottle of water and my books.

            Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

            With the summer in full swing I wanted a messenger bag that would keep me cool on my bike-commute to work. It is the perfect size to hold my water bottle (with a sweet built-in holder inside), notebooks, folders, sunglass case, pens, bike u-lock, etc. You can fit a lot more into the bag than you would think and look stylish doing so. I also took it on weekend trip as my carry-on to which I was happily satisfied. My only complaint with the bag is that the back-side stains easily. My clothing (typically black) has rubbed off onto the bag. After this purchase, I am definitely sold on Timbuk2.

              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.

              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.
