      Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger 2015:

      I love this messenger bag. I had originally bought the smaller size, and which fit everything I needed, but was bulging from the bulk. So, I bought its big brother, which although called a "medium" is much more like a "large". It has a great look, it's roomy, and its well built. I load it with all kinds of gear, and it has room for more! I carry a Microsoft Surface Pro 4, and it has plenty of space for a much larger laptop in the padded sleeve. Unlike some messenger bags, this has plenty of compartments to help organize your stuff, including two zippered ones, one inside, and one outside. This bag does it all, and looks good doing it!

      Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger 2015:

      This is a great bag that definitely ups my bike-commuting game. I have a Timbuk2 backpack that I love, but (as vain as it is) I hate carrying a backpack into a bar or to an event after work. I wanted a messenger bag that works well as a commuter and more stylish than most messenger bags. This is it. It's fairly roomy inside, but all the compartments and the bag itself are structured so there isn't a lot of wiggle room. I'm an organizer to a fault and this bag has lots of compartments and pockets for organizing. I do wish it had a water bottle pocket and a different waist strap (something a little quicker to snap on and off). Overall, though, this is a great stylish bag. Timbuk2 really pays attention to detail and creates some of the best bags on the market.

        Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger 2015:

        As usual I am impressed by the craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into Timbuk2 bags. After using the walker backpack for over a year, I decided to get this for my girlfriend for Christmas as she was starting a new job.

        The lighter color options were perfect for a more feminine look and she absolutely loves it/ uses it every day now.

        The hip straps to make the sometimes unwieldy nature of messenger bags less of an issue is a really nice addition and seems to dramatically improve the comfort for her.

        Highly recommend.

          Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger 2015:

          The bag looks great, and has a professional feel for the office. Got lots of compliments. But not much room to expand for amenities. I had a hard time closing it when I needed to add a few things like: a power supply for the computer, a medium size book, and a bottle of wine. Don't buy anything on the way home if you're riding. I can also see the leather "claps" wearing down quickly over time. The shoulder strap material is not on par for the price, and that's on sale. I'd be bummed if I paid full price. I like the utility and function of my classic messenger better, but it didn't fit the feel of a professional office. This is not a "weekend" carrier, unless you like extra luggage.

          I use the product to go to and from class. It has just enough room for my laptop, charger, a textbook, notebook and a candy bar. I get a compliment every time I use the bag. The leather buckles and fantastic, but seem to show wear.

          I can fit my laptop and a notebook decently in the main pocket. Phone and accessories fit very well in the other pockets. Shoulder strap is perfect for me 6'4".

            I've owned a lot of bags and this one is perfect. The waxed canvas is light and durable, and will acquire character with use. The leather trim dresses it up. The style of this bag goes with a hoodie or a suit. TB2 allows me to select the perfect size (in my case, small). I love being able to wear it across with a shoulder strap, or pick it up with the leather handle. It sits on the floor (although it could sit a bit better) without falling over in a heap. It has a zipper on the back (not a lot of TB2 bags do). It has the ideal combination for me of center compartment and pockets that are open and zippered. This one's a winner.

Rugged waxed canvas, heavy duty zippers, and genuine leather trims are tough as nails and get better with age, so you can be hard on the Proof without worry. We added a grab strap for an elegant departure after closing your deal. Designed to carry and protect your MacBook and other work essentials, the Proof is organized and practical, but handsome and versatile. Carry it everywhere you go.
