A few weeks ago, I picked up a Timbuk2 Command laptop TSA-friendly messenger bag. The bag seems to be very sturdy. Carbon colored recycled polyester makes up the outside of the model I purchased. Throughout a handful of trips the bag has worked pretty well. Overall, the design is first rate. I’m able to keep everything safely contained and organized during trips. The engineers probably should have worked toward managing the myriad of internal pockets. When every internal pocket is full the bag gets fairly oblong.
I’ll update this post with some pictures and a longer review later.
