Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I've had an extra small messenger for years. What is frustrating about that is I can't fit a normal 9x12 clipboard or folder in it. Primarily that it because the messengers taper so the bottom is smaller. THIS bag is perfect: It is square, it'll hold my ipad pro or macbook air. It is very lightweight. The closure device does not flap against the bag when I walk (on the messenger, you can hear me coming, flap, flap flap.) This bag is very slim...most timbuk2 bags are 4-5" thick...this must be about 2. My perfect bag might be another inch thicker....but this one is the best I've had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favorite Timbuk2 of all - light and elegant! I absolutely love this bag. It fits my laptop and all my essentials. I am a minimalist, so it works perfectly for me, but people who like to carry lots of stuff might prefer a classic messenger. I would buy this bag again and again - though I won't need to, because T2 bags last forever. Thx!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice size for quick business trips I love this slim, steam-lined bag for quick business trips. I can fit my Macbook Air 13" in the padded sleeve and get it out easily from the back panel zipper pocket when I'm going through security. I love the front pocket that is fuzzy inside--it fits my iPhone 7 with plenty of extra space for my chapstick so I always have it handy. the shoulder strap has plenty of padding and I can put all the notebooks I travel with along with pens, chargers, etc. in the organization panel and extra pockets. My only gripe is that the metal buckle on the front is a bit tough to unclip. I don't use it much because the velcro is so strong, but it'd be nice if it was a little easier to slide into the loop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality in a small package I use this bag as one of my 'daily to work' bags, mainly carrying my iPad Pro and 11" Lenovo Yoga in it. It's a PERFECT size for my small, daily computing devices - but not much more. This is exactly what I was looking for when making the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for social service street outreach Holds exactly what I need for street outreach including a small nalgene, a narcan kit, 2 phones and my notebook. I've found commuter bags too big to lug around walking all over the city. The transit bag is exactly the right size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little cousin of the Command messenger The Transit makes a great smaller cousin to the the command messenger. It has a similar styling but in a smaller package. The small pocket on the flap comfortably fits an Iphone 7 and keeps it close by for easy and quick access. This bag is great for carrying my 13 inch chromebook, I love the luggage pass through it makes it super easy to fly with and it fits under the seat real easily. It is small and slim, so it is not great if you like to carry a ton of stuff as it will quickly fill up. The slim profile is really useful when going on a crowded

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great work bag I've been looking for a smaller lightweight laptop bag for traveling. Has just enough room for what's needed for my meetings. The front pockets are big enough for chargers, wallet, sun glasses, etc.. There's a back compartment for a notebook. Very happy with the purchase.
