      Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag 2014:

      I switched from a laptop and backpack to a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and this bag. What an amazing change to my lifestyle. I was tired of carting my heavy backpack around. Now I can take the necessities with me and be comfortable.

      My only wish is that the compartments and/or pockets were a little bigger. I'd like to pack a portable hard drive in a pocket, but the pockets really only hold pens. Also my phone doesn't fit in a pocket either, but then I have a 5.5" phone.

      I will be taking this on my motorcycle to work as well and love the cross body strap to keep this in place.

      The size of the bag has made me reconsider what I 'need' to carry with me, and I have a happy medium. The bag is not too full, and I have enough gear to do my work.

        MacBook Pro extends beyond the top of the laptop sleeve, so the metal zipper rubs against the top of the computer. Not a huge deal, but I returned to get a bag that fits better.

        Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag 2014:

        I bought the medium bag in the herringbone pattern with wool exterior. I am a graduate student and use it commuting via bicycle and bus to and from my office/class. I get a lot of compliments on the bag, and love the look and material of the bag. Because it is designed to be sleek/professional, one of the trade-offs is that it is not very flexible in terms of just throwing things in on your way out the door. If you need to fit several items you have to approach it in an organized fashion. Nevertheless, I manage to fit my computer, iPad, wallet, 28oz Hydroflask, planner, and lunch without a problem (though the bag looks bulky/less sleek). I have had some experience with the wool "pilling" a bit on the back of the bag from everyday wear during bike commutes. I love the wool look, but may be better on the next version to put canvas on the backside to avoid the back from looking worn too quickly. Overall I'd recommend the bag to anyone looking for a stylish, practical, commuter bag.

          Love this bag. I was bemoaning the shortage of pockets when I just discovered a zipper compartment - happiness! Really a beautiful, well thought out bag.

          Use this as a laptop bag for work. It looks, feels, great inside and out. Haven't gotten a chance to buckle up both straps to take it on my bike, but such a great feature and can't wait to use it. Only con would be I would have liked a few pocket dividers in the front or back pockets. Don't love that I put small stuff in like pens, keys, wallet and they are all jumbled and hard to sort through after traveling with it. A minor flaw that doesn't take much away from how solid this bag is. ****

          Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag 2014:

          I chose the medium Proof Messenger bag because it has a clean professional look for the office, holds my large laptop without being bulky, and has a third strap to keep it in place when I'm unicycling home. I love the minimalistic look and the well designed features.

          My only complaint is that there is not a shoulder strap pad. The adjustment buckle lays on my collarbone and is uncomfortable on longer rides. I realize that a bulky shoulder strap pad would be off brand for such a trim and minimalistic looking bag, but having the option would be nice.
