- Q & A
Great bag, pockets could be improved
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a very well made bag. The strap system has a brilliant design that makes adjusting easy, even with one hand. I have the medium sized bag and it holds a lot of stuff. It's great as your under-the-seat air travel bag. My laptop is 15" x 10" x 1" and the laptop pocket takes it fine, but I tried the small bag first and it my laptop wouldn't fit in that bag. Getting through TSA is easy, I just unzip the laptop pocket so that the pocket laid out separate, but still connected to, the rest of the bag. Then lay it on the conveyor for the scanner. I didn't have to remove the laptop. My only complaint would be that I wish there was a bit more internal organization to the bag. There's a huge pocket for everything that has a small organized area on one side but this area doesn't hold much. There's one side pocket that is too small to hold much beside a charge cord. It doesn't even hold my phone that well (too small). There's a front pocket that's nice but could use a zipper to make me feel a bit more comfortable about putting things in it. There's a sideways, "passport" pocket on the front that has a zipper. This is the most useful pocket in the bag as you can access it without opening the bag. Then there's a mesh side pocket for headphones or a small water bottle.
Overall it's a nice bag but the pockets could be improved a bit.
Professional and Casual Perfected
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This bag balances a good mix of professional appearance, but still not out of place for casual commuting and travel. The TSA compliant tech pocket is super useful for speeding through security at the airport. Plenty of pockets for quick access and secured storage.
Timbuk2 Command Messenger Bag
I use the size medium as my daily driver for office life. Laptop, lunch, etc, etc. This bag is very well designed with tons of pocket access options. No complaints, good stuff.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
There's a pocket for everything with plenty of space for every day. It's TSA compliant so you don't have to bother with taking everything out when going through security. It has stealth hooks so that you don't make loud Velcro noises when opening and closing your bag. Can be used as a shoulder bag or a briefcase. Thoughtfully designed, good all-arounder.
