Timbuk2’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.
