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.

    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 :)

      Comments about Golden Gate Messenger Bag:

      I use this to commute back and forth from work and really like the size and feel of this messenger bag. It doesn't quite fit a 17" Macbook Pro in the laptop pocket, but I didn't really expect it to.

      I love all the small pockets up front and the feel of the strap.

        Comments about Golden Gate Messenger Bag:

        The day this arrived, it immediately became my daily carry bag. It is the PERFECT bag to carry my journal, laptop, a few snack bars, and even some small board games for lunch break! The construction is super solid and wether it's full or empty, it is always comfortable to wear, and it isn't bulky it any way. I don't need to turn myself when I'm on the Max anymore to get around people!
