Timbuk2 Wingman Pack $0.00
The Timbuk2 Wingman Pack may not be able to help you navigate the emotional ups and downs of a long-distance romance, but when it comes to toting your stuff on visits your beloved, it has got your back. Lightweight and durable, the Wingman gives you the the option of carrying it as a messenger bag; if you're carrying a heavier load over longer distances, pull the straps out of the zip compartment on the back and carry it as a backpack. Like all Timbuk2 straps, they're super-ergonomic to make lugging your pack a breeze.
- Side zip pouch gives you easy access to travel docs
- Wet-dry pouch keeps your shoes, wet bathing suit, or laundry segregated
- Padded laptop compartment on back accommodates a 17in computer
- Main compartment opens wide and includes compression straps so you can cinch things down
- Carry-on compatible, so you don't waste time waiting for a checked bag

Great travel bag
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This bag is ideal for a weekend trip. I can fit a good 5 days worth of clothes in there, assuming I'm not going to where it's freezing. I like the separate shoe compartment and other side compartment for extras. The outside pocket is huge. The zipper is small but it is a lot deeper. Fits everything I need and fits on a plane.
The biggest draw to this bag, for me, was how comfortable it was to carry as a backpack. I am 5'2" and petite and it fits great. I think it's a general good fitting bag for most. Compared to Patagonia and Marmot bags I've tried, this wins, hands down.
do you know what the difference in dimensions...
do you know what the difference in dimensions are from the small to the medium?
According to Timbuk2's website this pack only comes in a Medium size. Here are the interior dimensions (so your laptop must be smaller than these measurements).
Width: 18.3 inches
Height: 11.6 inches
Depth: 6 inches

The Wingman Suitcase by Timbuk2
This is my favorite bag for traveling with only a carry-on. The bag has comfortable shoulder straps for carrying as backpack which can be zipped away. I find backpack carry is much more comfortable to carry any sort of weight versus messenger style or a shoulder strap, which this bag can also do.
The organization on this bag is really nice. There's a padded laptop compartment at the back so you don't need an extra bag for that. There are two pockets at either end, one large enough for shoes, and the other is perfect for stashing your liquids. Finally, the outer pocket is good for your in-flight needs (magazines, iPod, etc.).
The bag is very well made, as you would expect from Timbuk2. It's a clever design and really useful item.
all the stuff that was in there
This consists of: 4 boxer briefs, 3 boxers, 3 t-shirts, 3 v-necks, 1 polo, 2 short socks, 2 long wool socks, 1 pair of cargo shorts, 1 pair of jeans, 2 books, 1 pair of size 15 nike runners, workout shorts, toiletries, iphone charger, travel documents, etc. I could have packed more if needed, and easily...
These are size 15
if that helps you with the sizing of the bag...
packed but open
Should have bought this sooner
First of all, I'm a picky picky shopper. I actually bought a Patagucci MLC from the cardiff Patagonia store and returned it the next day because the shoulder straps cut into my neck like most other Patagonia packs (Yvon, the owner of patagonia, is something like 3foot2inches and wants everyone else to be his height too...;)). I then ran to the Timbuk2 store on Hayes street to check out this bag, then bought it from my favorite "store", Backcountry.com. Here's the rundown...
This bag is fricking sick, and here's why...
a. Unlike the MLC, this bag has one large main compartment, allowing you to pack a LOT in there. I'm a bigger guy (6'4", 285 pounds-but not a fatty), so I've got size 15's to put in the bag, and much larger clothes than normal. The large compartment means you can put those workboots in the bag and they'll fit without weird squeezing...
b. The bag has an expandable pocket on the "bottom" side(when in backpack mode). I threw my shoes in there, but you can throw wet clothes in there too. You could technically put dirty clothes in there too, but it doesn't expand enough to throw all your dirties in there from the main compartment at the end of your trip.
c. The bag on the top(in backpack mode) is not expandable, but does pooch out a little bit allowing you to throw some shtuff in there just fine. I threw my carryon ziplock toiletries in that pocket to allow me to run through security quickly.
d. The zippered pocket on the large mainflap works great for throwing documents, keys, wallet, phone charger, etc. in it. Absolutely perfect and LARGE.
e. Being able to zip the main flap out is way more convenient than you'd think. You can see everything in your bag immediately. It definitely beats the slit opening on some duffels.
f. The compression straps are a nice touch. I didn't NEED them, but I still used them and they do their job.
g. The shoulder strap is bomb-proof, but I never really used it. The backpack straps are fricking awesome. I didn't think I'd use them much, but it's all I use on the bag to carry it (save the grabhandles).
h. Though Patagucci states that the MLC is the maximum legal carryon (hence the MLC), it's not. maximum is a cumulative exterior dimension measurement of 45 inches or less. so 20"Wx20"Dx5"H or something like that. The Timbuk2 is an inch bigger in two of the dimensions compared to the patagucci, and still is under the 45 inches. This thing easily works as a carryon.
On to what I packed for the trip, and still had room for it.
pair of size 15 dress shoes, 2 long-sleeve buttonups, pair of jeans, pair of workout shorts, 2 v-necks, a polo, a sleeveless shirt,3 boxers, 3 boxerbriefs, 4 pair dress socks, pair of short cotton socks, bag of toiletries, a thick paperback book (5oo+pages), Smith sunglasses case, and numerous knickknacks in the flap-pocket+2magazines in the laptop pocket... I could have packed much more.
In short, if you're looking for a kickass carryon, you will love this. And now that it's on sale it's an even better deal
notes on color (I've seen all three in person...)-
The potrero and violet bag is nice-looking. the Potrero has a brownish tint and the purple is dark enough it doesn't look like it's a female-specific color
The black and grey is simple and clean-looking, with a gray interior that will help locate things inside the bag...
The blue and gunmetal is a lighter color blue than the picture shows, and the interior color is darker than it looks in the picture. I bought this color, and I do like it a lot...
Hope this helps!
