Product Description

Smaller and more structured than a classic messenger, more relaxed than a standard issue briefcase, the Core works with denim and a blazer and dress shoes if you must. The Core's sleek exterior disguises its big functionality; a weather-tight flap and fuzzy liner keep your tablet and laptop safe and multiple internal organizer pockets keep you on point. A removable shoulder strap and luggage attachment strap lighten a heavy load but you may choose to go old school and carry the Core by its grab handle.

Seriously, I've been lugging around a leather bag for work for almost two years, compared to that, this bag is like heaven. I love the magnetic flap on the front, I never have to remember to zip it up. There's nothing like having your bag tip over in a work meeting and having to scramble to pick your tampons up. I also like that I don't need an extra sleeve for my lap top, reduces the bulk. And the weather proofing on the top and bottom, brilliant. Good bag. Love....

I have the Timbuk2 Core Briefcase in the heather gray polyester. This will likely be the last Timbuk2 product I purchase.

The quality of the materials and stitching is subpar to poor. The outer polyester and tarp material has a cheap feel, and the inner material is worse. This bag crinkles — no joke. The hardware is mostly plastic, with the exception of the buckle and zips. The zips are light, prone to catching, and loud.

Basically, it has the feel and look of a laptop bag that was produced by a laptop company — not a messenger bag specialist company. That would be fine if this were a $30 bag, but it’s not.

Organization is decent. There are two front pockets enclosed by a flap with magnet closures and an extra buckle visible in the pictures. Within both front pockets are mini organizers for business cards, phones, pens, markers, etc. There are two main compartments — the back one is padded for a laptop; the front one has a flimsy slash pocket for papers and two smaller slash pockets, one with a velcro closure supposedly for tablets (but strangely not padded for that purpose). The pockets on the inside have a cheap silky nylon feel. I do not expect them to hold up over time.

The strap is removable via cheap-feeling plastic carabiner clamps. I’ve already had one side of the strap fall off when the carabiner clamp was accidentally opened as it lightly touched the side of a table.

The grab handle is padded and made of nylon. The padding makes a squarish shape, which I am not a fan of. The stitching where it’s attached to the bag is already frayed after a single one-week long conference. I am probably going to retire this one shortly.

I’m not sure if this bag is made in an alternative material, but I do not recommend buying the grey polyester version.

I have used this daily for the past two months and could not be happier with it. Plenty of room for all of my important documents, laptop, and everyday carry items. So far it has proven to be durable with daily train rides and still looks professional. I do not hesitate to walk into a room of executives with it. Excellent purchase.

This has performed very well for me while traveling in Europe this winter. Sheds weather well and holds lots of essentials. I prefer this briefcase style bag over the messenger bags because there is no flap to lift up to access your stuff. I carry an umbrella, ipad,charging cables and adapters,shopping bags folded, bus pass and various other items comfortably.

I purchased this bag because I wanted a laptop bag that weighed less than my old one and I wanted a bag that was thinner. This bag met those criteria. As others have said the craftsmanship is good. The zippers are kind of stiff/cheap feeling. Maybe they will feel smoother with more use, just saying my first impressions.

I kind of liked the grey color but the black was $30 less and I didn't like grey that much more.

I have only given this 4 stars instead of 5 because it has very little padding for a laptop. I personally will not use this bag without a padded laptop sleeve.

I love this bag. Nice and trim, I used it to carry my computer and a couple books for school. The two pockets on the front are a great size to carry pens, power brick, mouse, etc. If you have experience with Timbuk2 products, this one is just like the rest in design and build quality.

Perfect sized bag. I looked for one for a long time and even ordered one from Acme (the Clyde), but it was massive. I wanted something light and lean that could be carried around in ease and that also fit my 15" MacBook Pro and a few books. I am mainly using this for work and commuting around, so far so good. Great durable material and looks professional as well. Leather wasn't an option for me because of the inclement weather here but this material looks great.

I like this bag. It's the first messenger-style bag I've owned personally. I wish it was a bit roomier, and the material of the laptop pouch could be nicer.

The organization pouches under the flap fit my wallet, work badge, and electronics nicely.
