There are many choices on the market for a bag or case to carry your laptop or other daily items. The problem with finding the right one is hitting the balance between briefcase (which only really fits the suit-wearing, downtown business types) and backpack (which makes you look like a bike messenger, hiker, or college student). A nice middle-of-the-road option is a messenger bag with the right options and a pleasing exterior that won’t make it look like you are carrying a purse. The Timbuk2 Cmd Laptop Messenger Baghits the mark perfectly.
This messenger bag is made from a durable oxford nylon fabric and comes in a variety of colors and several different sizes. It has a high-density foam laptop sleeve, designed for good air circulation, and includes a separate padded area for your tablet or reading device. The buckled strap allows you to easily adjust for length, good for quickly switching from a cross-body bike position to a shorter shoulder-carry position.
If you do a lot of traveling, you’ll be happy to know it’s also TSA-compliant, with a laptop compartment that unzips to lay flat for scanning. And with the additional compartments, you will have plenty of space for your cellphone and other items. Or you can do what I do and use it as your overnight bag or photography bag. I find it has plenty of room for a day’s change of clothing, plus whatever else I need for a work trip, meaning I took only this as my one carry-on bag. It may seem a little pricey compared to other laptop bags, but the sturdy construction and simple design mean you can use this bag for a long, long time without it going out of style or falling apart. It comes in a variety of colors and three sizes to fit all body frames and style tastes. I highly recommend the Timbuk2 Command Laptop Messenger Bag!
