Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

I commute to work almost every day and this bag has been a life saver. I had a Timbuk2 bag before this that was a bit larger, but more on the functional side and I wanted something that looked nicer/more work appropriate that still had the durability and weatherproofing of the other one. I hesitated buying this because of the price tag, but it was worth every penny. Some people complained it was too small. I got the medium and I can fit my 15in macbook, a couple books, a thick folder and other daily essentials/travel items. It is not as wide as my old bag (so I can't fit my lunch box) and it's a bit heavier overall, but it looks and feels so much better I'm not caring. The strap is very comfortable; I did not have to use the strap pad off my other bag. Have only had it for a few weeks, but confident it will stand the test of time.

    Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

    I am a gear snob. When I see a zipper I try to invert it to see if it is YKK or not. I reject every zipper that is not YKK and manufacturer that doesn't use the quality standard. Basically, I judge stuff by the zippers they sport. This bag passed the zipper test. This bag also passed a bunch of other tests including the 'Pretty bag!' Test, the 'ooooh leather' Test, and the 'nice color combination' test. The 'how does it look when I ride my bike wearing it' Test can't be conducted because there is three feet of snow out here.

      Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

      I bought this bag to replace my previous laptop bag. I wanted something that I could use as a purse/laptop bag, that would have room for my laptop and paperwork, but also my wallet and personal things. This bag is great! I can fit everything in and it doesn't look bulging or like it's overflowing. And the width of the strap evenly distributes the weight so the bag never feels too heavy.

      Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

      Looks grown-up, doesn't fall over when I set it down like most bags. It could use more pockets: I wish the website detailed the interior, even the video of the product overlooked the interior detail. That said, I liked it enough to take the chance and overall I am very happy with the bag.If it holds up for a long time I will be even happier!

      Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

      It fits my 15" MacBook pro retina perfectly with a hardshell case. It's a little snug on my 15" Dell, though. Once you have a computer in there you can't really put something bulky like my big beats noise canceling headphones. It would fit my water bottle and a few other small things. I use it for school and work and the wool has kept up very nicely!

        Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

        I am a senior medical student. I study everyday (including weekends) at Starbucks, Panera, DunkinDonut, Public Library, Hospital Library, Clinic dinning room. I own a swissgear backpack where I normally carry everything that I think that I will need that day. It is too heavy and most of the time, I don't even use half of the stuffs in my backpack. I study before work and after work and I dress formally for work (shirt, tie, shoes etc...). Carrying a backpack makes me look ridiculous especially when you run into your colleagues/friends. So I decided to buy something more elegant yet functional. Carrying a suitcase to me overkill, so I decided on a messenger bag that is attractive and functional. This fit perfectly. I carry 1 book, 1 laptop, 1 tablet, some pens, and it made my bag perfectly fit not bulky. When I decided to read only that day, all I carry is a book and some pen. Let's be honest here, carrying a book into a store look ridiculous while carrying it in a handsome bag like this one will attract many lookers/jealous looks. Other reasons that I settle for this bag, Timbuk2 is a great company, I owned one of their other bag, it is still in near perfect shape after 5 years of use. They have a lifetime warranty on this thing, I don't think that I will ever going to need it but it's a peace of mind. Lastly, this bag is much more functional than any other leather bag that I looked at. I like functionality.

        The messager bag had good quality and slim look to fit office work with bike.
        The only cons I have is the cross strap.
        The shoulder strap falls all the time if I follow the way to use cross strap from show video.

        ** ths is a messager bag designed for laptop carrier. shoulder pad is a must!

            Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

            I bought this bag as a gift for my boyfriend Dan for Christmas, secretly wanting my own, and it surpassed expectations. Dan uses it constantly whether he is going to school, work, or simply running errands. He constantly tells me how much he loves the bag (I think I gained major gf points. Ha!). The outside material is durable and seems to look better and better as it becomes worn and used. The lining inside is incredible and of high quality as well. He seems to fit so much in the bag, so don't let the size of the small fool you. He often fits his 13' laptop, books for class, casual reading books, phone, wallet, headphones, and a shirt or two inside! Its like his own man purse! The price may seem high, but with its lifetime warranty it's worth the splurge! Highly recommend it to anyone, men and women, because I'll be investing in my own one soon.

            Comments about Proof Laptop Messenger Bag:

            Product was a gift to a person who used it to commute on trains/cabs to and fro work, usually only 1/2 filled. Gave it on the 23/12/14, he noticed the strap had teased 7/1/15, leaving a very long strand hanging out. Emailed the warranty department on the 7/1/15 with photos attached, no reply. Forwarded the same email on the 9/1/15 to customer service. To this date (15/1/15), no reply. Slightly disappointed as I thought that the bag itself (not strap) felt very sturdy, of high quality. Not a single scratch on it and it looks great with work attire. Shipping and collection of payment was efficient and flawless, expected the same for after care service.. hope to receive a reply soon before I take a lighter to attempt to burn the thing off.
