Really GREAT bag!

This bag is the coolest thing I've purchased in recent years. I purchased it mainly for my laptop, because it fits a 15" MacBookPro easily and I wanted something that you don't see coming and going. But the bag can be utilized for anything really. It's incredibly roomy, the strap drop is fantastic if you want to go cross-body, it's perfect all around. Great weight fabric, I ordered the army green color, which is fantastic. The versatility is outstanding in that you can utilized the tote handles on their own, removing the shoulder strap, or the fact that there are D-rings at the fold-over level of the bag and also another pair of D-rings to attach the shoulder strap to at the full-height level of the bag for adjustment in what you're using the bag for. The inside has four slip pockets of varied sized for organization and the outer large zipper pocket is huge and very useful for anything you need quick access to. I absolutely LOVE this bag! High marks for utilitarian use and major coolness!!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great Fabric and Deep, Rich Color

Great for errands and I use it for gear and a change of clothing for my kayak workout. Convenient front zip pocket and small interior pockets in the internal divider work well for staying organized. Rich color and even a nice canvas smell. Easily adjustable strap.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

One incredibly simple fix would = 5 stars

I was looking for a light tote for the Portland Oregon summers, with some water resistance for any rare bit of rain that might pop up. This tote seemed to be just the thing. Handles or a shoulder strap I could also use cross body. Waxed canvas. Plenty of room for my padded laptop sleeve and other odds and ends. One problem--the internal pocket just sort of gapes open and can impede just slipping something into the tote. A zipper, magnetic snap, or just a piece of Velcro to secure that pocket, and this WOULD BE my ideal summer case.

My go-to bag!

I really love this bag. The colour was as expected and the material is very durable and is water resistant. The bag is deep and although it doesn't have a zipper, it snaps and the weight of the the extra length folds over for an attractive tote look. I carry a Macbook Pro 13" and because of the style, you can hardly tell what I am carrying. The position and design of the inside laptop sleeve doesn't make the bag look heavy. If you are going to use it carry a laptop, you will need to order a padded strap attachment, it just helps distribute the weight on your shoulder but shouldn't deter you from ordering the bag. The full zip up compartment at the front of the bag can hold lots of grab and go stuff and there are plenty of pockets inside the bag to organize cables, pens, smartphones, etc ... Note: there is no water bottle pocket but I carry a 'contigo' so am not concerned about it moving around and the bottom of the bag. It is a stylish bag and I get lots of compliments.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

High Quality and Totally Unique

This has become my main work bag because it has all the usefulness of a backpack without making me look like I'm still in high school when I use it. I love the front zipper pocket and the foldover top is surprisingly my favorite part - it's easy to access without letting all my stuff fall out. High quality, great color, zero regrets!

Great, multi-use tote

This bag is so versatile! As a grad student, I bike regularly and often carry a laptop. Though the specs on this bag stated it was suited for a 13" laptop, I'm able to fit my 15" Mac without issue and with plenty of room for a bike lock, water bottle, etc. The bag stays in place while I bike and handles rain really well. I actually bought this bag for a six week trip to Greece to hold my computer and Canon camera. Both fit perfectly--very happy with this purchase!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Good Idea - Poor Execution

I have been a long time Timbuk2 customer with a messenger, small bag, backpack, small folding bags, etc as a part of my collection. I have love the quality, practicallity and ease of use of all my other products. I had been looking for an over the shoulder tote that I could use for work. I had been using a Baggu Canvas tote and it was just getting really ugly and dirty no matter how many times I washed it. I wanted a bag that could withstand being tossed around and also look good for the office. The Whip Tote met all of the standards I was looking for (tote, short handles, also over the shoulder strap, stylish, office appropriate, practical, etc.). I had read reviews of how deep the bag was and that it folded over the top. I didn't think to much of it, but I should have seen that as a sign. My major issues with the bag is that the bag is so long length-wise due to the top that folds over, that as a 5' person I cannot carry the bag by the short handles. I literally drag the bag on the ground. When I am running from meeting to meeting, I like to be able to grab my bag by the short handles and not throw it over my shoulder. With this bag, I can no longer do that comfortably without my bag dragging on the ground or hitting ever step on the stairs. The other flaw with this bag is the internal liner. Due to the depth of the bag, it literally becomes a black hole. You cannot see into the bag. I end up folding the bag inside out to be able to retrieve my items and have put a flashlight on my bag. My coworkers have commented on me using my flashlight which makes me not want to take the bag to work which defeats the entire purchase. This can be remedied by putting in a colorful or lighter color liner. I have to say that as a true fan of the original brand. Since Timbuk2's redesign, I am more and more disappointed. I loved that Timbuk2 had both style and practicality. The practically piece is starting to dissipate a bit. I hope the company can come back to center.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Perfect bag for Millennial Dad

My son didn't much care for his wife's KS diaper bag. Christmas morning he was happy to receive this roomy tote; much less fussy while quite practical for the young dad on the go. The cross body strap conveniently slings over stroller handle too. The color and styling are a much better fit for him than black with white polka dots, haha. He loves it!
