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:

I use this bag every day. It's the perfect size for carrying most things I need for school and work, unless I try to carry all my textbooks and notebooks and my computer at once. The Golden Gate Messenger Bag is lightweight, and it has no interior pockets so there's no added bulk.

The navy color is beautiful, and the contrasting straps are bright and pretty.

The only thing missing from this bag's design is a grab handle on top. I never realized how important this feature really is until I got this bag. Every day when I get out of my car or get up from my seat on a crowded bus, I grab my bag from the passenger seat or the floor of the bus and go through this awkward twist-fold-grab dance with the bag's strap just to pick it up and have the bag come right with my hand, rather than trail behind by a couple of feet. But once I'm standing and out of the crowd, it's easy to swing the bag over my head and move on with it comfortably slung across my chest.

Don't get me wrong: I love this bag. But if it had a grab handle, I would LOVE it and never let go.

    Comments about Golden Gate Messenger Bag:

    I bought this "small" size timbuk2 bag after I bought a "medium" sized bag a couple months ago. I use it to commute on my bicycle to work.

    The medium size bag was so much bigger than I anticipated it was almost a burden to take it to work every day. Many days i felt like i was carrying an empty bag because there was so much space left.

    so I'm very glad I made the further investment and bought the small size bag. It's perfect for carrying the small-ish items the average commuter needs every day, i.e. lunch, maybe a change of shirt, bike lock, etc... The medium size bag is really only necessary if I'm carrying a really big load for some reason. I basically never use it any more. I prefer this small size bag.

    the only downside to this particular bag is the lack of small compartments. It would be really nice if there were a pocket inside the bag. Instead there is only the slit for the computer and the big main compartment. on the outside of the bag there are two very small compartments with zippers to open/close
