    Very sturdy and well designed bag that tends to stay slim even when packed with stuff. Would like to see more choices for the shoulder strap.

        Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

        Love the colors and texture. Allows me to fit both my work laptop (14") and MacBook pro (13"). I haven't had it more than a month but it seems durable and well made. I like how the inner pocket is slightly expandable and there are 2 options for snapping it shut depending on how much stuff you have inside. I recommend it.

        Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

        I have 4 Timbuk2 bags for different situations. I'm a cyclist who commutes by bike about 60% of the time. I don't use this bag for that. This is for every other time. Looks great, reasonably roomy, holds a 15im laptop well, and I get tons on compliments. The waxed canvas makes it look amazing. I just wish it had magnets on the closure buttons to make it easier to click shut.

        Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

        I have used this bag for a few months now. A mix of commuting via bike and bus, as well as some airplane travel. I love how sleek the bag is when it's closed. It has also managed to shrug off many Boston rainstorms. The bag is wearing well, although I am a little annoyed at the exposed canvas edging at the top corner of the flap.

        My biggest complaint is that the shoulder strap appears to be designed for the bag to be worn over the right shoulder. When it is worn over the left shoulder (as I like to do) the metal buckle adjustment tends to sit right on top of my clavicle. This is mostly an issue when I have the bag tightened down for biking. Adding an option to specify shoulder preference or making the strap convertible would make this bag unbeatable.

          Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

          I love the product, much roomier than it seems, I really like the style and material. Organization feels much improved (less floppy) over my previous Timbuk2 messenger. I like the look of the material, but I am concerned it will stain /discolor easily. Also the magnets holding in the laptop are more a pain than useful - seems unnecessary.

          This is my daily computer bag and I love it. At first I was concerned that it wouldn't fit my computer but after a few days it broke in nicely an fits it great. It's beautiful and finely made. The shoulder strap is a bit uncomfortable with a lot of weight in the bag. Well worth the money.

              Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

              This bag is really gorgeous, very rugged, and the magnetic clips are great. There are three downsides thus far:

              1. The magnetic clips get slightly in the way of putting my 13" macbook air into the bag. I've learned a trick for doing so, but it's a bit annoying.

              2. The leather cover is not weather-treated (I think!); a water stain took a lot of work to clean up.

              3. The clasp is a button, not a magnet; as a result it's slightly more awkward to open/close. The tradeoff is that it won't spill open accidentally.
