I own bags, but this is among the best bags I have ever bought from Online Store. I like it due to its long life. As per now I possess many different sizes of this type of a bag. They range from small to medium so don’t be worried about the size you can get yours. There are of two sizes there is the medium and the small so it’s your choice to get that type that will fit your needs. The medium Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag resembles that size of a standard messenger bag for cyclist bag.
It can be able to accommodate a very big laptop, its charger, books, even a water bottle to. But if you want to have the one which can carry many items lets say during shopping then you need extra large. It can hold as many items without limited mobility.

The older bags were made of ballistic nylon but currently they are made of Cordura, which makes lighter and looks much better than the older one. It is very strong and can serve you for a long time. I have used mine and it’s almost a year now but it is still in good condition. It has fewer pockets, but they are big. In the front side, there is only one pocket and it accommodates my jacket so there is no need of opening the main pocket.
I feel safe carrying my laptop since the presence of a pad can protect it if it happens that the bag has fallen down accidentally. The straps are thin but very strong; they are adjustable to fit your size making you comfortable. The shoulder pads are fixed you cannot be able to remove unlike the older version from the strap. It is limited to one color so it is impossible to change the color as other people are used to.
It fits very well on the back due to it friction minimizing its movement while walking. With even heavier materials, it sits much better at the back without making any shift. The cost of the bag is pocket-friendly and in comparison with its quality you will not feel any pinch spending $110 for a larger bag and $100 for a small Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag. Size, you can buy, is the small or the medium since they have a wider range of functions that the extra large.
There is something I don’t like about this bag as compared to the 2013 Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag. A 2013 bag had many pockets which made it good to hold each item, its own pocket, but the current one (2014) has only slash pocket having one zipper. The three front pockets for the older bay were more intuitive with better organization. In spite of that few changes that I don’t like I can use it and I like it so much that I cannot leave it down.
