Strengths:    Waterproof, spacious, good strap system

Weaknesses:    For the cost, some of the accessories should come with the darn thing.

Bottom Line:   
This thing is the bomb for my commuting needs. It holds a heck of a lot and is completely waterproof. The straps are comfortable for me and seem to be easily adjustable to fit a wide range of bodies. It carries weight lower on your body than most backpacks, which feels better when crouched in the drops.

That said, the list price is crazy high. There are no dividers on the inside, so I've got another portfolio bag I carry in there with my lock, tools, notebook, pen, etc... The spare clothes and coffee thermos get thrown in on top, and there's room for more stuff if I need it. I got the bag as a gift, and I am really happy to own it.

Backpack vs messenger bag vs pannier

I am currently commuting to work with a back pack and not looking the hot sweaty back. Will a messenger bag be just as hot and sweaty? I do not want to add a rack and pannier to my bike but probably will if messenger bag is about the same as a back pack.Read More »

Washing a Messenger Bag

So, I've had my Timbuk2 bag for about 6 months now, and usually I just throw it under my desk for the day. Sometimes though, I take the train into the City for a meeting and take it with me. It looks cool enough, because they are kind of trendy these days (although I may be the only one with a spa ... Read More »

Messenger bag recommendations

My venerable Timbuk2 tore on the way home tonight. It's not catastrophic - I don't have to replace it yet - but I'm starting to think seriously about a new bag. It's the size large Timbuk2, which has about a 2000cu capacity, and I'm pretty happy with that capacity. I would want a little different ... Read More »
