The Timbuk2 Command Messenger Bag is a messenger bag for on the go laptop organization. Off to work, onto a plane, wherever you're headed, store your laptop in the back half and everything else in the main compartment. The bag is TSA compliant, so going through security checkpoints are a breeze. Just make sure to put your tablet in the larger compartment, with your laptop in the smaller back section. Carry like a briefcase or use the removable crossbody strap. A pocket with an external zipper stores your powerbrick and other cords for charging up lickety-split as you wait for your next meeting. Undo the flap or use the napoleon side-entry pocket for quicker access to small items.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bag but the first version was 10 times better. I had the original Command Messenger bag. I loved it. Best laptop bag ever. It had all the right pockets and zipper pouches in all the right places. When it wore out and was peed on by the dog I had enough and decided to get a new one due to the sales they were having. I purchased a new one, larger, as I purchased a new laptop. The bag arrived and the color was great. Right away though, the bag felt very stiff. Upon examination, the interior was lacking of pockets in the right places, and the inside pockets felt very flimsy and cheap. The exterior side pockets, yet cool to have pockets there, I feel the lack of the front pockets with zips downgraded this version significantly. The interior pockets are not the best, and all the hidden compartments can be confusing as to where you stuff things. I am strictly comparing this version to the previous version which I absolutely loved. The velcro doubled up for extra protection in case you grabbed the bag without clipping it shut. The rear compartment is still very much the same, soft and nice for the computer with the extra pocket inside. Unfortunately this one lacks the hidden compartment at the bottom for a rain cover or small umbrella. In conclusion, Timbuk2 is my favorite company for bags hands down. I love the construction, colors, styles, and durability of each bag. I do highly recommend them but this bag just doesn't hit high on my list and I was really hoping it would. My wife talked me into keeping it and giving it time to adapt to the new design and I am still not happy with it although it gets the job done in housing all my gear I travel with for work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 Years and Still Intact Given as a graduation gift. I'm writing this review because I had the bag for so long that I felt some moral responsibility to my bag. it is still in the same condition as I got it; ballistic nylon is no joke. I used to bring my bag everywhere on campus and during short trips. Spacious cargo space and nifty pockets. The quality is great, and the various pockets keep my electronics separated from micro scratches from pens and keys I carry. One situational problem I've noticed is the how much the bag will bulge out if stuffed with clothes. Bottom line: the ol'school Command Messenger is a very good bag that will look to continue to be of service for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like it so far I got the small and it fits my 10x13" laptop as well as my 8 1/2" x 11" Rite in the Rain 9250T-MX Organizer perfectly. There is not much room to spare but I don't require any. The bottle holder is a bit small but will fit my 20 oz Yeti bottle. Time will tell how it holds up but I really like it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended and Now I Understand A friend of mine was traveling with me, and I noticed his Command Messenger Bag. After asking about it and the company that makes the product, I started doing my research. My wife knew that my current messenger bag was on the last legs due to me using it for over ten years. Therefore, she purchased the Large Command Messenger Bag for my birthday, and I was tremendously excited. The Large Messenger Bag at first seemed big, but now that I have used it for three months, I am glad she got that size. In fact, my friend who recommended the bag wants to upgrade to the large now. I use it daily for work and while I am traveling. The pockets are great for organizing my bag (I have OCD) along with having the ability to store my Ipad and Laptop in the back portion safely. The messenger fits perfectly under the front seat on an airplane with room for your feet and can open the padded area (laptop and Ipad storage area) for TSA scans if needed. I can carry a change of clothes, necessary documents, office supplies, charger for electronics, and it still has room for more. The strap is comfortable for hours, and the top handle makes carrying a breeze. The only thing I had to get used to is that it does not stand up on its own (unless fully packed). The cross strap for keeping it secure on my back while riding a bike is a great addition that I would have never thought of. Thank you Timbuk2, and I appreciate the products you produce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I use this as my carry on bag for plane travel, and once I get there it can become my messenger bag for bike rentals. It also is professional enough looking for when I show up on a job I don't have my old, dirty messenger bag with me. I like the padded laptop sleeve and the external water bottle pocket, so if it spills it's not in the bag with my laptop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timbuk2 to anywhere you want to go I bought this to replace a Fossil messenger bag. I own a timbuk2 backpack, roller luggage and hybrid backpack/messenger bag as well. Timbuk2 quality is hard to match, the command laptop messenger bag is no exception. I purchase 2 colors (Carbon/Molasses and Surplus) in size SMALL as i wanted something professional but not boring/stiff. I felt the Surplus color and texture just wasn't as polished as the Carbon & Molasses. At the same time i also purchased the Timbuk2 Closer Case in Small & Medium, however the medium was still smaller than the Command Small. I thought the slimmer size of the Closer Case might provide a clean look, however, it was still too small and the style of the Command bag, especially in C/M color is a very clean, sleek looking bag. Size small is still a larger messenger bag, but will not fit my 17" MSI laptop, should fit a 15" no problem. Surface Pro fits with plenty of room to spare, which is what i purchased this bag to hold. Pro: 1. Aluminum Hooks, though takes a minute to learn how to rotate the hook as some other reviewers have mentioned, after a couple times it's no easier/harder than a standard push-button clip style. 2. Napoleon side pocket on flap, AWESOME for going through TSA at airport to throw your keys, phone etc in (I'm pre-check so i cannot speak about the TSA approved benefits of this bag). 3. Cam Buckle lock, super awesome and convenient. Stows easily under seat in front of you, even on smaller planes. 4. Plenty of internal pockets for organization. 5. Texture of Carbon color material is really awesome, and very unique, will def. make people look twice at it. Surplus color did not have this texture Cons: 1. I'm left-handed and the bag goes over the left side of my body the water bottle pouch ends up being on the backside of the bag, this is just part of being a lefty in a right-hander's world. 2. the bottom of the bag is angled towards the front of the bag, so if you set it down it tends to fall forward, laying on bag face.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Barely fits my laptop I entered the dimensions of my 17" laptop (and even exaggerated the size a bit), and the Timbuk2 website said this largest size would be sufficient (it even said size medium would be good enough - ha!). However, it's not easy to get my computer in, and once it's in, it is really really difficult to get out. Instead of whizzing through airport security, I'm now the person holding up the line as I wrestle my laptop out of my bag. I feel like the bag needs another inch. I really wanted to love this bag (it's not easy finding a good-looking bag for a 17" laptop), but alas, I'm just lukewarm about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bag, good attention to detail, very functional The strap on my last bag would not stay adjusted. It finally drove me crazy enough that when I saw this on sale I bought it on impulse based on Timbuk2's reputation. Now that I've used it for a few weeks, I would buy it again at full price. There are a lot of things I like about this bag, but mostly it comes down to the fact that attention was given to details and almost every feature is useful to me. The things I like are: 1) The lined cell phone and laptop pockets. 2) The "silent" option of using only buckles, or skipping buckles and using only velcro to close. 3) The size is just about right as well. 4) The quick adjust strap feature is what got me to buy the bag in the first place. 5) Sturdy grab handle 6) overall quality of materials Things I don't like so well: 1) I probably don't need quite so many internal pockets 2) The zippers on the seam pockets (I think) should zip closed in the down direction rather than up, but that's maybe just me Nothing is a big enough complaint to deduct a star, I really like the bag overall.
