Perfect size for my daily bike commute to work. It easily holds a change of clothes, lunch, cable lock, tools, and spare tubes. With this bag, it is much easier to access and organize my load than with a top loading day pack. And I like being able to arrive at work, hop off the bike, pull my bik... Read More

    Beautifully made - it doesn't show in the picture but it has a great bright royal lining! Very classy bag, great to overnights, gym, to carry on an airplane etc. Highly recommended!

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by WVUTom from West Virginia on Monday, September 15, 2014
    I have used the large version of this bag for several years and loved it. My wife said she'd like one to use as an overnight bag, or for going to the gym. So I bought her one for her birthday! The price was so much less than direct from Timbuk2, I was amazed.
    There are some differences between this one and mine from several years ago. They are all positive too! The dedicated section in the back for iPad, tablet, notepad, magazines, is great and doesn't take away from the available space. The small pocket on the front, under the flap has more zippered sections. And last, the strap now has the clip to give you more room to put it on and take it off without having to readjust the strap each time.

    She opened the gift and loved it immediately. Great product!

    This bag - although it looks HUGE on my petite frame - is perfectly sized for my needs. It holds some work files, large pencil case, lunch, water bottle, a pair of shoes, bike lock, sunglasses case, wallet, sweater... It can even hold a box of half a dozen donuts! The cross strap to hold bag in place works beautifully. The organizer pockets on the outside front AND on the inside of the front means that little stuff stays nicely in place. I love the red colour that I chose - attractive and visible. Very happy with this purchase.

    • Answer No, the 2014 design has the buckles underneath the flap.

    • Answer I don't know. Sorry
      Answered on 9/27/2014 1:05:20 PM by Cynthia from Portland
    • Answer No, this is a 2013 model.
      Answered on 9/27/2014 1:31:52 PM by Stern Owl from California
    • Answer No, this is the previous design. No grab handle. No internal water bottle pocket.
      Answered on 9/27/2014 3:29:56 PM by bike commuter from s. calif.
    • Answer I just looked on their website and it does not appear to be the 2014 design. I say that because my outside flap does not have Timbuk2 spelled out like the picture on their website for the 2014 model. My guess is - this is the 2013 model ?

    • Answer Its the 2013 version! Both have pros and cons but I'm loving this bag version indefinitely
      Answered on 9/28/2014 7:15:45 AM by Jansen from Moncton
    • Answer The material and design seems quite waterproof ..... the flap has good coverage. Get a size that won't be overfilled - reducing the flap coverage. There are many zippered pockets for convenient storage but they are not exposed directly to the weather. I think this will hold up well to a downpour.
      Answered on 9/1/2014 11:10:06 AM by California Hiker from San Francisco
    • Answer Well, the materials themselves are waterproof. Since this is a messenger bag though, you will always have the area between the flap and the bag to worry about.
      In general, if you don't over stuff the bag and keep it closed up nicely it should be fine in the rain. However, depending on how long your sons commute is and how hard it rains, you may want to look into something that has a zippered main compartment.
      One other note from my college experience, many people put plastic bags over their messengers during severe downpours, as they would allow water to get in otherwise. Timbuk2 now makes rain covers for messenger bags specifically for these purposes, might be a worthwhile investment in your situation.

    • Answer While I did purchase this in part because I wanted to be protected from the rain & snow during bike commutes or at bus stops, let it be known that I live in Colorado, which has much less precipitation than Denmark. I would be worried that in heavy downpours, water could leak in the top corners. Though the liner seems highly water proof, if you need extreme waterproofing - I would go with one of those backpacks where the top rolls down. Otherwise, this pack seems to offer very good protection.

    • Answer The bag is pretty waterproof. The only way water may come in is by the side flaps if they're not tucked in correctly. I believe the 2014 version of the bag has a bit more amped-up waterproofing. I'm just not sure w/biking and the bag moving around if water may sneak in the sides. Hope this helps!

  • Question “Will a 17" laptop fit inside this bag?”
    Asked on 8/27/2014 12:49:29 AM by learning all the time from Delaware
    • Answer Definitely in the main compartment but not in the laptop sleeve. That could alternatively be used for books at what not in your case. I can fit my 15.6" laptop in the laptop sleeve with just about another half inch of room. I hope this was helpful!
      Answered on 8/27/2014 5:01:56 AM by Jansen from New Brunswick, Canada
    • Answer I just measured my bag and it looks like a 17 inch laptop will just fit. However, the bag is soft so the sides will give and expand a bit beyond the footprint. Just to be clear: this is a measurement of the width of the bag - there is plenty of depth to accommodate a laptop. Laptops are measured by width and not diagonally right?
      Answered on 8/27/2014 8:33:29 AM by California Hiker from San Francisco
    • Answer Yes it will. But just barely, so it will be nice and snug.

      I'm still loving my bag.
      Answered on 8/27/2014 9:24:49 AM by Mr Motorcycle from Boise
    • Answer Probably not. This bag does not have a padded laptop compartment. The main compartment has a divider but it designed for documents. Our Lenovo Y50 widescreen 15.6" laptop (15.5"W x 10.5"L x 1"T) can barely squeeze in with effort. It will fit in the main compartment but you would have to use a protective neoprene sleeve to protect it from bouncing around or bouncing against other stuff you are carrying. The large size would be a better fit. Even better would be one of the models with a dedicated laptop compartment. The Timbuk2 website has a sizing tool where you enter your laptop model and it will tell you if it will fit in a particular product.
      Answered on 8/27/2014 9:22:28 PM by bike commuter from s. california
    • Answer It would be pretty tight. The top part definitely stretches to 17", but the bottom tapers a bit and is smaller than 17". I would recommend sizing up.
