    Comments about Spin Messenger Bag:

    Hey there, Timbuk2 visitors! So you're looking at the Spin Messenger bag, eh? Lemme tell you: this bag rocks. I am a grad student who bikes and walks to school multiple times a day, and this bag is my savior. I put a giant stats textbook in it, multiple notebooks, my laptop and who knows what else is in there at this point. What I do know is that it could fit so much more if I needed it to. AND it wouldn't rip, tear or break. Because this bag is DURABLE, my friends. I love love love it and I think you will, too.

      Comments about Spin Messenger Bag:

      This bag is my new everywhere bag. Unfortunately, it is not quite large enough for an entire grad school class load all at once, but it is perfect for a couple of classes at a time. And my teenage daughter says it makes me look younger. For that reason alone, i will use it everyday

            Comments about Spin Messenger Bag:

            This feels feather-light compared to other Timbuk2 messenger bags, making it perfect for use as an overnight/weekender, dance bag, carryall, etc. No padding, so you'll have to provide your own if you use it to carry electronics.

            Small/Medium is actually pretty darn big. I think most people would consider this a large bag.

            Comments about Spin Messenger Bag:

            I own the Timbuk2 Spin XS/S carbon bag.

            This is probably one of the most underrated Timbuk2 messengers. I own the Classic Messenger in small and this one. While I adore my Classic for all its great features, the Spin is a much lighter, no bells or whistles alternative.

            While it is not as thick as the Classic, and not the same watertight material, it does resist downpours and keeps your belongings dry, and the side flaps keep it very secure at the corners. It has enough organization inside to keep your smaller items in place, and the key holder is the metal type, just like in the Classic. The padding is pretty much non-existent, so make sure you keep your electronics protected in cases or sleeves. This is, however, one of the features that makes this bag ultralight.

            It's easy to adjust and the shoulder pad is slim and flexible, making it very comfortable to carry. The velcro is huge and loud, but this ensures that this bag will not come open on its own, or that you will certainly hear or feel it if someone tries to open it while riding transit.

            Keep in mind that this bag does not have a Napoleon pocket or zippered compartments on the inside. Only a small zippered pocket for your keys. This is truly a minimalist bag, and this is precisely what makes it lightweight and perfect to carry the basics.

            I use a separate zippered pouch for cables and power source, and I have had no trouble staying organized. The basic organization (slip pockets, and two pen holders) actually force me to think about my load and carry the essentials.

            I've owned this bag for about a year and I have it on my frequent bag rotation. It's a great addition to a bag collection if you are a bag geek who likes to switch it up every once in a while.

            The construction quality is impeccable, even better for the price. Happy carrying!

            I was on the hunt for a bag that would be comfortable to wear for bike commuting but stylish enough to carry around the office. This bag perfectly fits the bill! It's great quality and I bring it with me everywhere! I have the small/medium size and it has plenty of room for my computer, workout clothes, and a pair of shoes.

              Comments about Spin Messenger Bag:

              I took this bag as a carry-on for a 3-week trip to Australia. I could fill it very full, then wrap the top firmly on the velcro, which shrank the bulk and stayed firmly closed. Later on the trip I put in art supplies & used it successfully while painting outdoors. I emptied it prior to a shopping trip & filled it with all-day purchases. Basically, this bag did everything I asked it to, and looked great the whole time. It was easy to clean, and comfortable to carry even when it was heavy with stuff. It's the best travel bag I ever owned. Now that I'm home, it's still a handy bag to take to work. Instead of walking in with my purse, lunch, computer, shoes (I wear snow boots to work), and other stuff, I walk in with one bag. Perfect.
