    Comments about D-Lux Laptop Bondage Messenger Bag:

    For my needs, this bag is just about perfect. It's comfortable, has excellent storage that is well thought out and easy to use (the cozy soft pocket even holds my new 5.5" smart phone!!). The top grab handle is great, the quick adjust strap system is wonderful, and with the cross strap you and ride with confidence that the bag won't slide out of place.

    Being able to access the laptop compartment from both inside the bag, and from the rear (weather proof!) zipper is great. I LOVE the "napoleon" pocket for keeping my keys and wallet accessible without having to open or remove the bag. Tons of pockets mean that everything I carry from headphones and flash drives, to keys and books has a spot. The velcro on the back to keep the laptop/tablet compartment from moving is a great addition as well over other Timbuk2 laptop/tablet bags I've had.

    My only con is that this bag doesn't have bottom compression straps to synch it up when you aren't carrying much, but it's not a huge issue as the small size that I got is still very low profile on it's own.

    Super glad I found and bought this bag before they were all gone! Timbuk2 should seriously reconsider discontinuing this bag!! The new options just don't hold up, I tested a new classic messenger laptop and bought and returned a Command Laptop TSA bag before getting this one, both were inferior to this bag in many ways.

      Use as an architect/builder carry-all. Consumes large 12.2 tablet and smaller tablet as well as paperwork and scale rulers. Quick adjust strap is handy for securing bag to seat back while driving.....leaving easy access to side-set cell phone pocket.

      Comments about D-Lux Laptop Bondage Messenger Bag:

      I've got the large version of the bag, only had it for 3 months and loving it so far. Using it mostly for school as I'm a college student, but I feel it can be used for commuting and day trips as well. Very roomy and it fit my 13" macbook pro, a couple of textbooks, a water bottle along with a sweater and still with room to spare.

      I feel the downside may be that the main compartment is too big and there could be the option of having some form of compartmentalization.

            I got the smallest size and it is perfect for carrying an iPad and my Yoga 2 Pro, but not too much else which protects me from my tendency to haul too much stuff around.

            Comments about D-Lux Laptop Bondage Messenger Bag:

            I bought this bag as an early birthday gift to myself and it's been great. I take the bikeshare in downtown Chicago 1.5 miles between the commuter train and work. After dodging traffic a few too many times, I realized I really did need to wear a helmet, but I didn't want to be the guy showing up to business meetings and looking like some extra that work at Jam Pony on the set of Dark Angel (I work in sales with some pretty mainstream end-clients). This bag has been a great choice for holding my laptop and notebook in its own isolated compartment, but having more storage to reasonably fit a helmet, without looking ridiculous or needing to attach the helmet to the outside of the bag.

            I like the look and functionality of it. I don't use all of the pockets yet, and I think there's a certain amount of "breaking in" that needs to happen before I'm 100% satisfied. The material, buckles, and straps definitely feel new and are pretty rigid, so I haven't found my exact sweet spot with the bag yet, but we're just getting started with winter, aren't we?

                The messenger bag gets strapped on the front grille guard on my tractor when I'm working in the woods. My larger thermos fits perfect along with a stainless steel cup, and some sandwiches, can of Kipper Snacks or whatever I want. The strap is very sturdy and the bag is padded very well to keep the contents from damage. Easy to open. This really is a great messenger bag.
