Size: MediumColor: Black Verified Purchase
⁃ Shoulder strap is soft (comfy!), but tends to slide off the shoulder when wearing a jacket. Make it grip cloth better. Minus 1 point.

⁃ The messenger-flap buckles are useless at best and a teeth-grinding hassle at worst. If they were reversed so the straps were on the flap gravity would assist their function. If they were eliminated they would be better still. Minus 2 points.

⁃ External compartments are too much of a hassle to use (because of the flap and straps). The 'command' bag is better here because of it's 'Napolean' pockets and water bottle holder (think: wet umbrella). I was tempted to get command but it's flap blocks the main compartment and would drive me bonkers. I have a fragile grip on sanity as it is. Minus another point.

⁃ The bag fits great on my roll-aboard's collapsable handle. (+1) However the slot through which the handles pass has velcro on the bottom (why?) and this means attaching is a two-hand operation. Every time. Over and over. Minus 3 points.

⁃ The laptop storage section is soft and really nice! (plus 10) And unlike other bags (including 'command') the compartment zips from the top, creating extra storage, great! But this leads to two problems: 1) if you utilize this extra space you'll find out at the worst possible time, the TSA's Xray belt, and 2) if you unzip early to prepare for the belt, and are still attached to your roll-aboard, the bag may yawn open and you'll have a "yard sale" right there in the security line. (Minus 5 points, but some of that was my fault too).

⁃ The grey color looks beige / tan under some lighting. Now I look like a slacker, and I've worked hard over the years to get my socks to match. Not what I was expecting. - 1.

This Timbuk2 bag is everything that I have been looking for. I wanted a briefcase type bag that would fit a few folders and notepads, my laptop (15 inch MacBook Pro), and my iPad for when I need them both at work. And this does the job.

I will say that if you carry a lot of books and want your laptop and iPad then this Timbuk2 case will be very heavy and it won't work well, but if you, like me, are mostly digital then the few folders that I carry and my electronics fit perfectly.

The front pockets are big and can fit snacks or cords/cables, etc.

I have found the perfect bag for me to carry the "essentials" with me to work and not carry around a dorky looking briefcase or generic laptop bag.

I purchased this bag. It is a great size and has a great design for storage. It started to tear at a seam within a month of purchase. I contacted the manufacturer through their website to do a warranty return. I needed to send it back at my expense via UPS or Fedex. I did get an answer within a day of their receipt of the item and they informed me that I would receive a credit towards a replacement from their website...no offer of a refund...just pick another bag. I did select the same bag, BUT they made me pay the return shipping also!

So I paid about $20 (2 separate shipping costs) to replace a one-month old defective bag!

Lifetine warranty?...with a cost!

I am disappointed in Timbuk2...Amazon great as usual!

I use this my my Macbook 17. Fits perfectly. Lining is quilted cloth so padding is not the strong suit, but that is OK with me.

Light, easy to access compartments.

Only (minor) gripe is that the buckles for the flap are not positive. If they're not cinched down you end up clicking and clanking because they come out. I think it's more that the strap slides in the buckle; if it were rougher it might stay better.

I bought the Control Small last week. I wanted a bag to carry a 13 MacBookAir and iPad (with logitech case). I have a few other bags, but they didn't really work with the smaller laptop and I also was looking for something smaller and lighter -- to take advantage of the smaller and lighter MBA.

This bag is great. It carries both devices, chargers, cables and accessories and has lots of room for other stuff. Extremely well thought out design and execution. Very light and convenient features.

Haven't subjected it to heavy road use yet, but I could not be more happy with this bag for around town use and I will put it through its paces on the road soon.

Very highly recommended, particularly if you are looking for something in a smaller size for a MBA and iPad combination bag.

I bought the Timbuk2 messenger bag earlier this year (large) and got the Control today.

I switched most of my traveling gear from the Messenger to the Control. Most everything fits perfectly and is a snug fit with an iPad 3 with case, 15" laptop, some pens, Anker Astro 3E external battery pack, Targus Wireless keypad and one small manilla folder. When I say it's a tight fit, I really mean it.

While there are lots of pockets and storage, be careful what you decide to put in there so you don't max out your depth of bag. When I put in my Logitec bluetooth iPad kepboard, it was bulked out. Trying to put in my Saddleback large wallet? Forgettaboutit.

The construction of the bag is well done, but the top flap hides two large pockets. The first inside zipper compartment is enough for pens, business cards, a couple of thin files while the main computer compartment has two slots, one for the computer and one for an iPad, the third pocket is just big enough for a power brick and cord.

I'm a seasoned traveler with lots of miles on my various bags. I'll say this. If I was off on a one or two day trip, the Control is perfect. While I would like to get an external wireless hard drive, it's not big enough for my 1TB Seagate external drive, with all of the other stuff. If I was on a 3 day or more, I'll fall back on my 17" messenger bag from Timbuk2. It's got enough room for two laptops, iPad, Anker, Seagate drive, mice, and assorted gear with room for a water bottle and snacks.

Bottom line: If you're a light traveler with everything either cloud-based or on your laptop, you're good to go with a Control. If you're a heavy traveler with a mobile office (crazy but true for me), go for the Classic Messenger bag. I am really happy with both purchases, but when it comes down to space, I will have to switch from one to another.
