    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.

            Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

            I like 'almost' everything about this bag. Fits my 15"laptop, easily accessible compartments, premium feel on the inside and the leather accents on the canvas are a nice touch. While looking at other bags the style of this bag and stabilizing strap for bike commuting were the strongest selling points.
            My biggest complaint is the shoulder strap. It's a thick, cheap looking, cotton weave strap that you would see as a cheap camping belt, or on $10 bag. I can already see 'fuzzing' from 1.5 weeks of use. The shoulder length adjustment connection has another thick piece of leather stitched on with a large edge that grabs the stitching on your shirt when adjusting the bag. I wore holes into my Jack Spade messenger bag but that strap was great till the end. I wish I wouldn't have thrown it away because I would cut the jack spade bag strap off and stitch it onto Timbuk2 proof bag.
            I ordered online from Timbuk2 but I'm not sure I would have bought this bag if I had seen and/or tried it out in person.

            Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

            I didn't think I would miss a handle so much, but everytime I pack my bag it's the first thing I reach for. I did not consider this when I bought the bag - I purchased because it looks great and I like the material. It could use a couple more compartments and I don't think the closing mechanism is very efficient. In hindsight, I would much rather have a different model.

              Use it for commute. Not as roomy as i was hoping but still great bag. comfortable holds all my necessities. It is a little awkward it doesn't have a handle on top to carry it like a briefcase, but i got used to it.
