Custom Messenger Bag from Timbuk2

Cest la VieTimbuk2’s custom bags aren’t necessarily a new idea, but they are about the first who I know about that do it on a decent scale, and still have a competitive price.

If you want to sport your own style and be able to carry a computer, Timbuk2’s got some good news! Their custom bag offering now includes a “classic” messenger bag, a laptop messenger bag and a “market” bag. C’est la Vie!

I can’t say enough good things about my own Timbuk2 Track Day Laptop Pack, and I’d love an excuse to get another Timbuk2 bag. This is pretty close to one, but I’m still on a minimalistic focus, so I’ll have to pass for now.

But that shouldn’t stop you! Even if you’re not really going to buy one, you can head on over to the Timbuk2 custom bag builder and play around. It’s fun and much less work than trying to custom build a new car since you don’t have to care about what “convenience package 3b” really means.

Now what? What should you do next? Read the Timbuk2 Track Day Laptop Pack Review or go build a custom messenger bag at

    I have a couple of Timbuk2 bags and love them!

    Timbuk2 bags are nice, but if you’re on a bicycle, Chrome bags are an order of magnitude better. The one-hand adjustable D-clasp on Chrome bags is a godsend.

    It hangs on to you like a squid so it will stay in place when bunny hopping curbs. My old Timbuk2 would slide down off my back and around under my arm with even a little movement.

    If you’re just walking around with it I’m sure it’s fine, but for a real messenger bag I’d stick with Chrome.
