Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag - Mediumis rated4.0out of5by1.
Rated4out of5byfromAlmost exactly what I needed...I bought this as an overnight/computer/CCW bag. The price was right and it doesn't look "tactical" (one of my criteria). I will preface my next statement by saying that I understand the intended use for this bag. Now...I would love if the Timbuktu bags were able to be customized for concealed carry. Velcro panel/larger, externally accessible, pocket, etc. Other than that, great product at a great price.
