    Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

    Great bag. I wanted something for everyday work but casual too. Didn't want the stuffy leather case all the time. This is a great classy well built stylish bag made in the U.S.

    Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

    Bag looks great, but within 4 months the cross strap tore out at the seam, despite having never actually having been used. Customer service was responsive but said the bag is irreparable and the color pattern (grey/brown) was no longer available. While I was offered an exchange, and would be interested to see another color, I'd have to give up mine for good to do so, and I'm very happy with this color.

    If you're aware of the limited size, it's still a great bag. If it never came with a cross strap, I'd give 5 stars, but this quick of a tear makes me leery of the overall construction quality.

      Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

      I have been using a Duluth Pack messenger bag for about 10 years, maybe more, it has been great but lacks structure and pockets. It is a bit lighter but while I have yet to use this new bag the Timbuk2 should be a better traveling companion and easier to find things as needed. Will know more as time goes on...

        I used to be a backpack guy, until i saw this bag. It's cool looking and easier to carrier around than the backpack.

        Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

        I have the larger model and my MacBook pro retina 15" fits perfect. I can fit my printouts in the back compartment. The bag is not as deep as the other models that I had but can have charger and a beats one headset and a thin shirt in the bag. But it is tight. But for me it works well, I don't pack my bag with lots of stuff normally. Have another TB2 that I use for short travel and sailing.

          Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

          I use it everyday, often carrying a laptop (MBPr 13") and commuting on a bicycle. The stabilizer strap fits very nicely and is quick to set up and tuck away.

          It feels very high quality, it's fit for what I need when I don't carry a lot (laptop, notepad, sweater, wallet, cables, etc.).

          After a month of usage, including travel, I have yet to find something I don't like about it.

            Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

            This is my 4th timbuk2 bag and tops the list. The size is perfect and the style is clean. I was worried about it having enough compartments, but there are plenty for my needs. My one complaint is that I miss having a handle. I think a simple leather handle would make this the perfect bag.

              Not much I can write that hasn't already been said. The Proof Messenger is the perfect bag for a professional environment. I refuse to carry a briefcase or some other nonsense and this was the perfect fit.
