Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

It is durable and good looking. It cleans up nicely. But for me it is too small. I needed my old bag that was bigger but a snap broke. I thought about the repair cost of it and choose to buy this bag instead. Mistake. My old bag had a lot of complements and this one ... not enough for my uses. My old bag was not that much bigger but held more and had more compartments. This bag is a bit more dressy and I can see it will work better for official business functions. What I need is something that will safely carry my 15" macbook and the power cords and a few other things without looking like I have the bathtub inside or I'm a homeless person. Every now and then I think this bag is okay. That is when I only have my laptop in it. It you don't plan to carry that much this will do. A few books OR a lap top but not both. I paid too much to feel so so about this bag.

    Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

    Overall very good quality and very attractive yet practical - exactly what I was looking for. Only a couple minor cons: would be nice if it had a handle on top and if the snaps were magnetized on the main compartment for easy, quick closure. But practical enough to carry everything you need for a day at school or the office, yet is wearable with a suit - just what I needed.

    Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

    I picked up the Proof as a bag that could dress up a bit more than my Classic Messenger. I've had that bag for years and adore it, but it just doesn't go with a blazer. This one does, and in fact, I think it bridges the gap between casual and fancy quite well

    It works as advertised - plenty of pockets and enough space for a laptop, tablet, plus a few other things. It can expand a little bit. Really my only gripe against it is that it isn't as roomy as my messenger. It's not the bag's fault at all - it's meant to be smaller - I just didn't realize how much I relied on the massive amount of stuff I could put in my other bag.

    So when it comes to my next trade show, the Proof will be my bag. For my next trip to New York, I think my carryon will be my Classic Messenger.

    Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

    Despite the fact there is no handle on the top of the bag, it's still easy to grab one-handed, even with stuff in the bag. Love the look and feel, screams quality in a non-flashy way.

      Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

      I've searched for the "perfect" messenger bag to fit both my needs and style for a VERY long time. I stumbled upon the Proof and knew my search was at an end.
      The bag looks amazing, better than the pics or video can show you. It has an excellent strap that adjusts; so even big guys like myself can wear it comfortably all day. There is a ton of space and plenty of pockets, all lined with that extra-soft interior material.
      My ONLY complaint, like others have mentioned, is lack of a grab handle. I don't find it that big of a deal, honestly, but it would be nice to have.
      If you're looking for a very nice, durable, stylish messenger bag, you can stop searching and just buy this.

      Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

      Works great with suits, business casual, and less formal wear. Jeans, dress pants, t-shirts, formal jackets, it goes with them all. It doesn't stand out but but when you do look closely the bag has a quiet elegance about it. Handles my larger work laptop but is more comfortable with my 13" macbook (the magnetic flaps have to be pulled open to slip in larger laptops). Overall exactly what I was looking for in a work bag.

      The only thing I find a little unfortunate is the pen holders on the interior of the pouch are not the easiest to slip into. It's a very minor thing, however.

        Great bag. Has everything you could want. Only thing missing is a hand strap on top of the bag that you can use to pull out of the car or compartment. Instead you have to pick up the whole thing. Would have gotten all stars if it had that 1 feature.

          Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

          Amazing product. I am completely satisfied with the purchase. The only thing I've noticed is the magnets that keep the opening tight are almost too strong. It is not easy to quickly put your computer in it's compartment as you have to open the bag. However, that just speaks to the overall quality in construction materials . It is, a most, a minor inconvenience when dealing with a product superior to any messenger I've owned before this one. I do not think I'll ever buy another brand of bag and cannot wait to purchase my next Timbuk2.
