What can I say about this bag? It rocks. As a road warrior, this bag fits all my needs. Backpack? Yes. Briefcase? Yes. Rugged and Stylish? Yes Yes. As far as the reviewer complaining that the zippers would not work when he overstuffed it? I find that funny. Mainly because he overstuffed it. All zippers are difficult to zip when a bag is overstuffed. Buy it. You will love it.

This bag is just poorly designed. It's too deep for its size, the pockets are so annoying because it's difficult to get things out from the bottom of each pocket. The nylon style flap fuzzes-up due to getting snagged on the velcro. The flap is so annoying. This bag would have been better if the height and length were reversed (too deep for a small bag!) and if there were a zippered top instead of an annoying flap. I tried to use this bag for a year and can't take it anymore. I honestly don't know why they keep re-making this style.

The bag was the size I was looking for. It's got plenty of room for what I use it for. Since I live at Lake Tahoe the waterproof feature was a must. For my tastes there is a little too much velcro on the bag but I can live with it. If your looking for a messenger bag, take a look at this one.

I have other Timbuk2 products and love them which was why I ordered this bag. Once it arrived however, I didn't like the double closure with two clasps and Velcro. Felt like overkill for this style of bag and the bag was rather large for a "medium" sized bag.

Excellent bag. I have tried many others for my everyday bag, and none have com close to being as useful as this bag. Has many pockets to stash things in. It's light and durable, and easy to clean. I am getting the larger version for my work bag. Definitely worth it.

I love this bag. It's roomy, comfortable, and very durable. Lots of storage including an area for your laptop. I use this as my work bag and also for weekend travel. I am a pretty petite female, and this bag looks proportionate on me. Yes, this bag is pricey, but it is genuinely worth it. It will last you forever, it will keep your stuff safe, and it's nice to support a reputable company. The only downside are the plastic buckles that keep the bag shut (along with a heavy Velcro flap). The buckles felt really difficult to open at first, which can be a real pain when you're in a hurry. However, either they've loosened up or I've gotten used to them because they're not so bad anymore.

I have owned quite a few Timbuk2 Classic Messengers over the years, and I have to say, I like this latest edition. On the plus side, the new available colors and materials are great. I love the softer, cooler color of the grey twill you see here, and the deep red accents and liner compliments it wonderfully. There are two small pockets on the inside of the bag's sides, one solid, the other mesh. And the addition of a grab strap and the inclusion of a shoulder strap pad are both appreciated. However, there are some negatives. The grab handle is not padded, and it is a bit too far down the back of the bag, at least for my use. Those two small pockets are too small for anything but the tiny water bottles, so I use them for little items instead. The clever cam buckle is gone, replaced by a good but less usable slide clip. And the twill, while softer and good looking, probably isn't as durable as ballistic nylon. This is, of course, easily avoided by buying one of the many great looking ballistic nylon options, so it is more of a personal thing. Overall, The bag is as great and comfortable as always, and I cannot wait to see what the next evolution of the bag will bring.

I love this purse! I was so tired of heavy leather purses, and also wanted something that looked different than everyone else's. It's light weight, and roomy enough to hold my essentials. The strap is comfortable on my shoulder and doesn't dig in. The light gray interior makes it easier to find things inside. I get compliments on this purse everywhere I go. I couldn't be happier!

I wanted to like this so much. For long-haul business trips I use an ebags etech 2.0 Weekender convertible bag, and for short trips I've been looking for something just like it, but half the size. This LOOKS like it could be, but the design is terrible. You can't even open it fully! Most backpacks and any suitcase opens wider than this. I'm not sure what niche they're trying to fill with this thing, but you'd be better off getting anything else.

I love this backpack! It's just the right size to carry my 15" MacBook Pro, iPad, a couple of paper notebooks and file folders, and other odds and ends, with good weight distribution. The arrangement of the pockets and zippers provides quick and easy access to everything. And the color is really pretty, too!

A great messenger bag! I originally bought it to carry a canine Water Rover, dog treats, poop bags, etc. while walking our 2 dogs, Sid and Lexi. The bag is very comfortable and fits nicely cross shoulder such that I can even comfortably jog/run with the dogs while carrying the bag. Bright reds in diablo color help me be seen. Easy to get things in and out of bag. Am sure I will have many more uses for this versatile bag.

I adore this life saver. I needed a purse that could also serve double duty when needed. I am self employed and homeschool the kids. I needed a bag I could toss devices, files, wallet, snacks, and a water bottle into. One that could hold up in any weather and be set on any surface. I have used Timbuk2 bags for many years now. I still have my first. I throw them in the wash, use shout on really dirty spots and they come out looking brand spanking new! I love the scrunchie bag. It is important for me to be able to reach in and grab. The light colored lining lends itself well to that. I also refuse to fight with a narrow zippered opening. This bag has a great opening for a zipper! I missed having a zipper to secure it all. It is a little larger than I expected, but I am thanful of that now. It still looks like a purse and I have been asked many questions about it. The makeup pocket inside is massive and holds everything I want to put in it.Plus there is a second one on the other side for all those other items to stash. There is a net to hold water bottle or sunscreen etc. The outside zipper pocket in front makes for the best key and gerber tool pocket ever. I have a second set of keys hooked to the chain that makes finding them a 1 second process even when my bag is totally full. The lobster clip on it is so super easy. This brand is faboulous and the prices are affordable, thank goodness! Oh, and it never slips off the shoulder, can still carry on arm when too heavy and it can stay on my shoulder when I need to just drop one strap reach in and grab wallet. Could rave more, but I think you get the point.

Just the right size to keep my iPad and e-reader. Lots of small zippered pockets to keep passport and other valuable things. I really like this bag.

My husband loves this bag for carrying all his gear to and from work. Lots of room for computer, files, etc. He hasn't tried riding his bike with it yet, so can't speak to that, but overall he is very pleased with the bag.

This wallet is fantastic! I debated buying it for a while, but I am glad that I did. I bought it to take with me during my term abroad and it allowed me to carry my passport, European bills, my keys (when they were off of their larger keychain) and keep everything organized while fitting my phone in it as well (Moto X, while using a slim-fitting case, not in the designated cell-phone pocket. I either fit it in the middle or within one of the two bill pockets, which was just fine for me). While it is not a super fancy wallet, it is extremely practical while being discreet. I always felt that it would stay secure and I found that you can clip the main zipper to the strap if you are wearing it externally to ensure your zipper stays zipped. I would recommend this wallet to any traveler, or anyone who wants to keep everything in one place.

The Timbuk2 Slate Backpack is a hybrid outdoorsy backpack with some civilized/fashionable features. It consists of a large main compartment, two side pockets with elastic openings, and a front pouch with basic organizer. With the exception of a place to put a laptop, there are no other internal pockets or dividers. The Slate is more "fitted" than the other backpacks I've used; it's a bit narrower but longer but as a result, it stays in place better. Overall, this is a high quality backpack and it fits my lifestyle better than my previous Swiss Gear backpack ~ I travel quite often and I appreciate how the Timbuk2 Slate works well for me for both work and play. It doesn't give off much of an outdoorsman vibe while I'm in the office, but it's ready to go when I want to hike, bike, or explore. I dig the chest strap though I haven't had a chance to use the integrated bottle opener yet ~ the external carry loops work great for lighter things such as padlocks, climbing harness/shoes. Although the bag is already pretty compact, I think some straps to be able to cinch the bag down would be helpful for hanging heavier items, eg. larger bicycle locks. Overall, the Timbuk2 Slate is a versatile bag and it works well for me. I like the look, and I like the red interior and tarpaulin & canvas combination. I hope it will last.

Great wallet, just the right size for 6-7 credit cards and cash. My wallet usually gets thrown into a backpack so the integrated elastic band helps keep crap from falling out. Only complaint would be the slots are a bit tight when you first start using it but loosen up a bit with use.

This suitcase is fantastic. It rolls very well and there's an opening from the front which means you don't have to unzip the whole bag to get a few things like your jacket. There's two small mesh zip pockets to hold small items inside. It has enough handles to grab from any angle. It looks a bit big to carry on the plane but I'll try that next. Roomy enough for a weekend trip or a bit longer. I love timbuk2 products and own a about 20 items and this is one of those worth buying. So far another great timbuk2 product!

A wonderful messenger bag to have. I was hesitant on purchasing this bag because it says "small", (I only wanted a bag that could fit around 2 textbooks and a laptop) but when I received it I was surprised. It has a North Face "Hot shot" back pack look to it - which is awesome. It can fit around 2 large textbooks. For those who are around 6 feet tall and up, or for those who are interested in a bag with more space to hold additional books, shoes or clothing, I would recommend a size "large" bag. The black messenger bag which I purchased has a very sporty masculine look to it. All an all, great bag.
