The Timbuk2 Commute Laptop Bag was cleverly designed so you can breeze through airport security with a laptop, access your small gadgets quickly, and this bag slides over the handle of your rolling luggage so you can roll everything together. Most messenger bags leave you fumbling to pull out your passport or your laptop, but the Commute was designed with the traveler in mind, so breathe easy and enjoy the travel as much as the destination.

  • Tough ballistic nylon shrugs off years of travel and commuting while keeping your goodies inside safe
  • Waterproof TPU liner keeps your electronics dry when faced with light precipitation
  • Quilted laptop compartment zips open so this bag lays flat in two sections for security scanners (TSA-compliant)
  • Napolean-style side entry allows you to reach inside your Commute to grab your MP3 player without undoing the buckles to main compartment
  • Shoulder strap has padding and was designed to be removable depending on your preferred carry-on style

The bag you will love!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I'll break this review up in a couple of pieces: Quality, Organization (utility), Style, and Accessibility.

Quality - Solidly built with very durable fabrics. Something that really brings me to getting a Timbuk2 was that they have waterproof TPU fabrics that keep things waterproof, which are awesome! Downside is that this one doesn't have it all the way around like most of their bags. A small gripe considering it's damn near bomb proof and really to use this thing in the rain isn't really what it's built for. Handling a few drops would be easy enough for this bag I would suggest they make it with seam sealed zippers on the computer compartment size, though.

Organization - Excellent. Many pockets for many things. I looked at a lot of bags: Chrome, Dakine, REI, Mission, and many others. This one stood out to me in that it had the right amount of pockets to organize with that I was needing for my overly-OCD need to have things where I want them to be. Oh, and it's one of the few bags that had an exterior water bottle pocket. Two interior water bottle mesh pockets, which I use for cable storage are an awesome build. The front napoleon pocket is perfect for tickets or fast to access paper. Two just-so-happen to be sized perfect for tablet sized accessories (my kindle and iPad). I will say that the 15" MacBook Pro is a bit too tight to call a good fit. It feels like I'm going to burst the seems on the Medium bag. Just keep that in mind for those of you out there with one looking at this bag that it'll be a VERY tight squeeze. As far as organization goes, which is why I bought this, I'd say A+. (also a good back up for you Daddy's out there looking for a non-girly diaper bag).

Style - This bag looks great and is nicely understated for it's ability to be a durable messenger and a travel bag. Blends into business needs when needed. Blends into street/urban style when needed. Good mix!

Accessibility - Easy to get into and easy to pack. Well done!

Great bag, great quality.

This bag is super durable! I've been using it for a few years now and it still looks new. It's got a huge spot for a laptop, room for books, a waterbottle and all your accessories. The one downside of this bag is that it has no pockets on the outside when it's closed, not even a small one for keys or your phone. :( If they made that upgrade, I'd give it 5 stars.


Recently upgraded, Thanks Mum

I recently got a new timbuk2 thanks to a gift card from me mum. I Have been using this pack almost exclusively going to work and back since I received it in the mail. This one barely fits in my hospital locker (whoa). It straps nice to my body ( bought one of those chest strap accessories which cinches it tightly to my body when I am rushing to work. The padded Laptop casing is very nice and it fits my mac perfectly. I wish it had a little bit more room for my lunch and what not, but with what space it does have it is perfect. Aside from that I love this bag and will continue using it my 3 work days a week!

Where did you get the chest strap accessory?

Bob the chest strap is available for purchase on the Timbuktu sales site. They have a bunch of accessories there, and I think it cost me 7 dollars for the product and whatever shipping may be. Hope that helps.


Great Bag

Its great of walking but it could fit a little better while riding a bike.
