What's this all about?

Inspired by 1980's San Francisco, the Golden Gate Messenger pairs nostalgic styling with modern features. A retro Timbuk2 woven label, vintage metal cam buckle, and 80's color ups are California cool, and so is its internal slash pocket for your iPad or up to a 11" MacBook Air. Large enough to carry most things with just enough organization to help you find your keys, the Golden Gate is simple throwback style you can wear today.

    Comments about Golden Gate Messenger Bag:

    This is the perfect size to take my computer to the office, day trips or secondary bag on trips to feel my stuff is secure to walk around a busy city. Very comfortable. Needed a little extra depth that the XS didnt have. Wish timbuk2 would consider a waterbottle pocket on the outside of their messenger bags or can throw a wet umbrella in in. Would also love a deeper XS to carry my tablet and spare items in this perfect condensed size. This is my 4th bag - only missing the medium size. Large & XL are perfect as a carry on. XS & S are great for short activities or as an office bag. I bought the XL & L over 5 plus years ago and look as good as the day i bought them. Im hooked on timbuk2 messenger bags!

        Have a number of TB2 bags, and this one is my fav. Not much in the way of pockets or compartments, but keep my Macbook Pro (13") in there along with my tablet and etc. Love it!

        Great product, made from a good quality material.
        Ideal for macbook pro 13' laptop.
        The small pocket is kinda nice.
        The only problem is lack of internal pockets, for me it don't matter.
        If you a messenger bag guy, you should bye one fast :)
