    Hi folks,

    I have had one of these bags for several years. Despite multiple other laptop bags, this is the one I still come back to for travel. It's useful and very sturdy.

    I use it by putting my laptop and small camera bag into it, along with some food, then hanging it on the back of my rolling carryon bag. It fits under almost any airplane seat, yet carries a lot, and slings well across my back.

    B&H: Timbuk2 messenger bag - $39

    I've got a Snoop Messenger, which is basically the same bag with a camera insert. I've had it for years, and apart from some pilling of the strap, is still solid. Recommend.

    This is an older version of the bag but still an excellent value for the price.

    Yep, Timbuk2 makes great stuff. Just don't confuse this bag with their Commute series.

    The one the OP linked to is the one I use as a day bag with a photo insert - great usability, fantastic value at the price indicated, old model or not.

    I have several bags (who doesn't?) and this one is my favorite. Very well built and loads of nice features.

    Thanks for posting this. Tried getting my wife a new bag for Christmas, but she only has eyes for my bag.

    Now if I could just get her to like a lens besides my 12-35...
