Rated 2 out of 5 by from so close, but not close enough. Love the commute bag and have a prior model year. Want another but there's things about this current one can't live with. My model has a suitcase handle pass through that doubles as a drop in pocket perfect for iPad mini when the zipper at the bottom is closed. Which is 100% of the time. Can't live without that. Also, the single strip of velcro in the middle of the bag is going to be problematic. Mine has right and left side strips to mate with the bag flap strip. With how velcro loses it's grip over the years, the double strips are better than a single strip down the middle. New commute 2.0 is of zero interest to me. Please mate the best features of the one i have with then nice features of this newer version.... Then I'll be able to refresh. Oh, and add a customization option to the Commute Messenger. I'd pay to be able to customize flap colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! Overall, this is a great bag. Timbuk2 makes the best messenger bags, and I've tried many! This one is a nice step up in organization over the Classic Messenger. I would buy a second in extra small if they made it, assuming that it would hug a 8.5x11 notebook (or my tiny MacBook computer) for when I need to pare things down. Pros: Size is great for all-around use. Organization options are wonderful! Lots of ways to secure contents in addition to convenient external side mesh pockets-and internal ones for edge items. Back internal pen organizer and zippered pocket area are useful. Zip pocket ensures that pens and such aren't flopping around. Ballistic vertical slip pockets in front panel are handy. I like that the pocket in the flap is small so I don't over-load it. In comparison to my medium classic Timbuk2 bag, this bag is much neater because the front area stays close to the bag. Cons: Small is just a bit narrower than my medium classic messenger bag. So it is not a pared-down size for me since I carry heavy items. I'm not a fan of the velcro closure for the full-width nylon internal slip pocket. Some other fastener might be better so it would remain connected while accessing contents without unfastening. I'd like a redesign of the strap-I'm 5'2" and it's hard to adjust the strap so it isn't under the padded shoulder attachment-the two ends of the strap come close together without leaving much room for expansion adjustment. (I didn't notice this problem on my classic messenger bag), The pocket in the flap is too short for my Samsung Note8, so I'm still exploring the other pockets where it fits to choose the one that is best for it. I'd like a different design for the strap because I'm 5'2" and in order to avoid the clips being under the shoulder pad, the end buckles of the strap come together without leaving much room for the quick-release adjustment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Almost very godd, but fatally flawed I use this as an overnight and flight bag. I carry two computers and bits and pieces, mainly chargers and books. It has plenty of space, and sensible pockets. I think it's nearly perfect, but for two things: the bag lacks rigidity, meaning it tends to lose shape, particularly when held by the handle. Secondly if the bag is loaded, the single Velcro strip tears away from the covering flap, leading you to scramble to clip the clasps together [which should be possible to do one- handed but it's not], before the flap potentially detaches itself spilling contents on the floor. The Velcro strip should be across the entire width of the bag. Timbuk 2 is welcome to contact me to help design a perfect bag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag, I just wish the laptop pocket was bigger I purchased the large Commute Messenger Bag as a replacement for an older messenger bag that busted. I have a 15" laptop that is more workstation than laptop. my laptop is about 1.5" thick with about a 17" diagonal. The fit is very tight, especially if you use any of the pockets in the laptop area. If the pocket has about 1/2 inch more depth and 1/2 inch to length and height it would be perfect, or maybe they could make an XL version of this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart people designed this bag I'm a big guy but I got the small sized Commute bag to stay streamlined around the city and it's plenty big. Ridiculous quantity of pockets, pouches and organizational areas. The TSA laptop back zipper pouch is really brilliant. I use the front small zipper compartment everyday. Can also still stuff gym clothes, etc. in main compartment. Everything you need for a full day at the office plus. Could even be an overnight bag in a pinch. "Surplus" color looks great. This bag will reduce the friction in your life and help you get more stuff done.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great except one major flaw Love so much about this. Easy access to computer without getting into main pocket. The major flaw is the velcro strap is useless. The Velcro parts don't even match up unless the bag is completely full. And then it is too heavy and they pull apart. You have to use the buckles all the time and that is tedious. One vertical Velcro patch doesn't get it. Fix that and it would be my favorite Timbuktu product and I have many.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy again Nicely constructed bag, it does have many pockets however the majority of them are open, it would be incredible to have two more small zippered pockets. I don't ride a bike with it so I have removed the shoulder strap and never installed the cross strap, as a daily briefcase and "European carryall" it fits my needs. I do travel (infrequently) and will make use of the laptop pocket and strap eventually, so it is versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good, could be GREAT! Pros: 1. Solid construction 2. Quality materials 3. Sound design features 4. Aesthetically pleasing Cons: 1. Certain design features need enhancement 2. Somewhat heavy My search for a daily carry included the following criteria: 1. Plenty of pockets/compartments for organization 2. Water resistant/proof 3. Fold over front cover that can be secured 4. Dedicated side compartment(s) for drink container 5. Cross-body style carry 6. Large enough to fit all my daily work items and a set of gym clothes and sneakers, small enough not to be cumbersome; weighing as little as possible The Timbuk2 Commute Messenger Bag (L) fits the bill very well. However, I feel there are some design improvements that need to be incorporated for it to be the best bag on the market. 1. The dedicated drink compartments are way too shallow a. Recommendations: i. Taller compartments ii. Incorporate some type of retention system (could be a circumferential cinch or, preferably, a strap that would wrap around the top of the container and snap or buckle) 2. The front pocket is advertised for cell phone storage but is too small, by today's cell phone sizes, for this to be possible. a. Recommendation: i. Make the compartment taller, possibly extending up to the handle 3. Side inserts which would prevent interference between items placed in the internal size pockets and the side drink compartments. Material similar to a thin shin-guard could be inserted into this area, to prevent interference, without sacrificing the flexibility of the bag sides. The bag is very versatile; and for the most part I am pleased. But, for my every day carry, I would like the aforementioned list incorporated to really bring this bag to the highest level. Thank you for your time and the opportunity to review.
