Brawny and of course brainy.
The bomber yet beautiful Timbuk2 Commute 2.0 Laptop Bag lets you take your techy tools with you wherever you roam. A 15-inch lined and padded laptop sleeve protects your geekware within ballistic nylon; when you're traveling by air or entering high-security offices, the laptop compartment folds open so it lies flat and can be easily inspected without removal. An organizing sleeve with tons of pockets keeps everything in its place, so you spend less time searching for stuff and more time on that brilliant and brainy project.
- Ballistic nylon construction resists abrasion for enduring function and beauty
- Padded, zippered rear compartment is lined with corduroy to protect and secure a 15in laptop
- Medium-sized main compartment holds daily supplies for a day or a week, depending on your workload
- Bag opens to lie flat when going through security checkpoint for quick and easy inspection
- Front flap features organizing panel with key tether, nine sleeves, and two zippered pockets to hold all the small essentials
- Removable padded shoulder strap slings over shoulder or cross-body as comfortable carry options; back panel sleeve conveniently slides over luggage handles
- External pocket holds water bottle or compact umbrella for easy access
- Rear bike-light attachment loop and reflector tails add visibility in low light or after dark

I understand that this will generally fit a 17" laptop, but mine is 17.3" and a little bit thick--is there enough wiggle room for those of you with a 17" laptop that one a little bit bigger would fit?
exactly what it needs to be
Fits a 17" mac book nicely. Holds books and all the other stuff that a laptop needs well. Looks good. Solid construction. Like I said, exactly what it needs to be
Great design, but didn't hold up...
I loved this bag, especially the unzippable lie-flat compartment for my laptop, which meant that I did not have to remove the laptop when passing through airport security. The problem: I went through 2 bags (both returned to REI) because the handle started to come unattached from the bag. In the case of the 2nd bag, this happened after about 5 days of using the bag around town and 1 week abroad, where I didn't even use it on a daily basis. I was very disappointed with the quality of the bag, especially given my previous experience with several Timbuk2 messenger bags.

Hey, so the colors listed are dark brown, flame, then dark brown, which is brown, red and brown. The picture, however, shows orange, black and orange. Is the picture representative of the products you have in stock, or is it the color description?
Great bag for commuting/travelling!
Lots of compartments for your stuff. Huge main compartment is waterproof. Stays in place when biking. Padded laptop compartment is great, although most TSA workers will still make you remove your laptop going through airport security. No durability issues so far.

how come this bag shows as $69.97 in google shopping results and $109 when I click through?
My guess would be that Google's info is not current, that It is still probably showing the winter clearance price when everything on the site was up to 50% off. But that's just my guess, it sucks when you get all excited about a price like that. I know, I use the shop feature of Google a lot too, I feel your pain!
Look'n for a Bag, Stop Here
I had a North Face bag previously and thought it was great, until I checked out one of these. This is packed full of features and has plenty of pockets to organize your stuff that are really well thought out. The laptop has it's own separate compartment which you'll find is more helpful than you thought it would be. The elastic drink holder on the outside is a huge plus, just wish there was one on both sides. Very comfortable strap, and carries great. The quality of Timbuk2 is awesome, this bag is built like a tank! I would not hesitate to buy this bag, you won't be disappointed.
Does the large have the elastic/water...
Does the large have the elastic/water bottle pockets on either end like the earlier version (v 1.0)?
Yep. It's got 'em.
It only has one, not one on each end.
This bag is perfect for what I needed. I travel a lot, but have become pretty good about bringing only the essentials on the plane, but no bag does a better job of organizing said articles. This bag is also awesome for school, perfect size. It's very comfortable and accessible while wearing it. The TSA friendly laptop compartment is the real selling point, so highly recommended.
thank you to the customer service guy who helped me figure out to buy this bag.. my husband loves it. it has so many compartments, has a separate section for his files and he said that it is really comfy to wear.. and hey, it is carrying a 17" laptop.. yikes! thank you for the great product. -lesli
