I'll start off by saying that I recently bought last years model of this same bag in medium. Once I saw this new bag with the different features I thought "Sure, lets try it out". However, I found that the medium bag I had before was massive! I had a ton of extra room in it after fitting in all my stuff. I decided on ordering the small this time and if I didn't like it, I would simply return it. But just to be safe, I ordered a medium as well. So here I sit with three different Timbuk2 bags. Here are my thoughts on the small and medium 2014 bags.
Small: The small bag is great if you need to hold a laptop and a few folders. There are plenty of pockets to keep yourself organized and hold your smaller things. However, I found that this size was just not practical for me. I am a first year teacher that does not have a personal classroom meaning that I travel with my laptop, binder, lunch, water bottle, coffee mug, and several folders throughout the day.
I'm re-writing this review, because my first go-around sucked. ***After a week of using the bag - newly updated!***
I got the Medium edition of this, the 2014 Classic Timbuk2 Messenger (Diablo). It is my 3rd in a series of Timbuk2 bags I purchased seeking the perfect messenger. Here is the whole list:
1. Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag 2013 (small, night blue/blue/night blue)- This was my first Timbuk2. I thought I wanted it to be small, but I found myself wishing it were bigger every day I carried it. Also, the colors (night blue/blue/night blue) were slightly brighter than I had expected, which was offputting. It was a pretty good fit for my fiance, however. 2. Timbuk2 Command Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger Bag (medium, Red/Gunmetal) - Using what I learned from the first bag, I got this one. It was bigger, which I...
I own many messenger bags, both brand-name and off-brand. The 2014 Timbuk2 fixes every single one of my gripes about my previous model, and, in doing so, makes it my favorite messenger bag.
SIZE: I own the Medium, which is about the size of a standard cyclist's messenger bag. It holds about as much as a larger student's backpack -- I carried a 1" thick laptop, about 4" thick of papers and paperback books, a water bottle, chargers, and the like, and it even had some give for the compression straps. However, for cyclists, the cargo capacities of the Medium are OK for small trips, but not huge shopping runs like many of your larger bags. It holds six cans of soda, a few frozen dinners, and a couple cans of food, with room for a U-lock/cable combo and small personal items. If you want to use this for shopping, get a Large. I own an old extra-large which I bought at the same time I bought a carbon bike -- it carries as much as panniers used to without the downsides of...
