A riff on the Timbuk2 Classic Messenger, the Expressway is designed to fit a women's body and carry exactly what she needs. A fuzzy, padded laptop sleeve protects up to a 13" MacBook Pro but doubles as an excellent place to carry the September issue. Organization is paired down but highly functional and the messenger's main compartment is large enough to carry layers, lunch, and the libation of your choice.

      Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

      Love the bag! Would like a nylon/seat belt type strap better, it might make it a bit more dressy for the office, but the color and size are GREAT! Good for day to day, maybe not for carrying a lot during travel...unless you travel very light! I would buy it again!!

        Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

        I really do love the bag-- it is sturdy, small, but spacious enough that I can safely fit my mac-air 13 inch, a few notebooks, 2 textbooks, wallet, phone, and water bottle.

        Big pros:
        Sturdy, adjustable strap
        very secure water-bottle holder on the inside
        easy-access phone pocket

        Only con:
        It is a light color, so the back became dirty fairly quickly. I have not yet washed the bag, but I may in the future.

        Overall, I would recommend this bag. Very good for student use.

          Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

          Looked at the Timbuk2 web site because their products are made in this country. They had some great options, but I chose this because it looks professional for work and is light weight but roomy. My only concern is that it is light colored so might look dirty quickly, but otherwise this bag is perfect and a reasonable price. I especially like the key hook as I used to lose my keys in my bag.

          Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

          I love this bag- it is super convenient for work for carrying small projects home as well as some snacks and a water bottle for a road trip. The bag is very comfortable and well proportioned for a woman's body. The only downfall that I have is the Velcro. It is a heavy duty Velcro (the flap definitely stays shut) and it's loud when you open the bag and it has caught the threading on my scarves. I have thought that it would be better to have a metal snap button- or something other than the abrasiveness of Velcro.

            I bought this because I purchased a small new laptop and didn't want a huge bag. It can be a bit tight to fit books in there too but overall it is working out well. I have received several compliments on it already.

              Comments about Expressway Laptop Messenger Bag:

              This bag was the answer to my long quest for the perfect bag: a small, lightweight bag big enough to carry my 11" Macbook air, a few files and a couple of books, with easy access to my phone, pens, and water bottle. I commute a lot and therefore need my bag to carry my stuff and make it easily visible. So a bag that had structure but wasn't too overpowering or calling too much attention to bells and whistles. It's a perfect streamlined balance between functionality, design, and appearance. It's practical, but will go nicely with my professional wardrobe. It also helps me control what I carry on me so that it's not too much. I can tread more lightly, comfortably, and competently throughout the day.
