This review is from: Timbuk2 Sidebar Briefcase Messenger Black/Carbon 811-4-2194 up to 15"
Pros: Easy to use with enough organization for everyday use back and forth to the office. Nice roomy protective computer pocket. The 2 smaller outer pockets are great for your power cords, wallets, phones etc. and have velcro closures to keep things from falling out. Large interior pocket holds files or even an extra change of clothing.
Cons: The black plastic or vinyl on ends of the bag looks cheap but I do have to balance that with the cheap price that I got this for (on sale)
Other Thoughts: This is my 4th Timbuk2 bag after learning about the brand via a newegg sale. I love the company's products.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The TSA compliant is a huge plus for us business travelers. Never fumble with another Bin at the security check again. Lots of pockets but not so much so that you cannot remember where you put your stuff. The bottle holder on the outside is great because I always bring a bottle of water on the plane. There is a red tab to hold your keys. I can find my keys in a flash without having to dig through everything.
Cons: Stiff shoulder strap but I am sure that it will soften over time.
Other Thoughts: Never heard of Timbuk2 until I saw this bag on sale. Since that time, I have purchased 4 Timbuk2 messenger bags, and 4 Timbuk2 wallets. I am a luggage "holic" but I am very picky. Timbuk2 gear is obviously designed by travelers or the company really listens to their customers. This is similar to their Command (which I also have now). I like how the Command opens up to be TSA compliant and you can take the bag off the security area without zipping it back up. With the Commute, you do need to zip it back up before you take it off the conveyer belt. The Command is a bit more formal and business like but the Commute is cheaper. The inside of the Commute bag is also a bit larger. So it all depends on what you what from a bag. I could not decide. So I bought both. I have no regrets. I just alternate depending on my mood and where I am going. Buy a Timbuk2 bag. You will love it!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Case Logic 15" Reflexion Mobile Attache Morel Model RUL-115
Pros: Got this cheap on sale for 12 bucks. Offers great value when you are looking for a small light weight bag to carry your laptop & a few basic accessories. Has separate tablet pocket. Easily holds my Dell 15" laptop. Has sleeve to piggy back off a roller luggage. Nice front pockets to access frequently used items.
Cons: The bag does not really hold its shape if it does not have a laptop in it. It also does not have the expensive feel & look as other more expensive bags that I own. But remember, this got this bag for a cost of a couple cups premium coffee. So let's be fair.READ FULL REVIEW
