messenger bag review

Whether you’re looking for a bag for commuting to work or a bag that you can take to school, the Timbuk2 D-Lux Messenger Bondage is a great option to look at.  I’ve been testing this bag out while commuting to work by bike, train, and foot, and I by no means travel lightly.  I like to pack my lunch, gym clothes or work clothes, a 15″ laptop, books, and work folders.  To allow for the bag to carry all this, the D-Lux Messenger has two cinch straps on the bottom of the bag that allow your bag to expand and compress allowing your goods to be secure whether you are carrying a large load or just a laptop and a few papers.

For the organizational freaks out there, the bag comes with a few add ons that attach to the inside of the bag and are removable if you don’t need them.  It has plenty of pockets for your pens, pencils, headphones, cell phones, business cards, and more.  For those who want to stash a cell phone or camera without having to carry it in your pocket, there is a side entrance in the bag that you can use without having to open up the lid of the pack.

Since laptops are fairly standard for most students and business people, I think it’s important to use a bag that allows for some protection to your computer.  The D-Lux Messenger has a Velcro secure laptop sleeve that has small foam bumps that help bumper bumps and drops.  In the messenger bag I tested, the laptop sleeve was bright red, which is a fun contrast and adds some style. For additional flair, the D-Lux is ribbed with a fun color and the inside of the bag is lined with a royal blue waterproof liner to keep your stuff from getting wet.

Commuting to work or school by bike is a great thing for your health and the environment, but not all packs are created equally when they fit on your back and shoulder.  I found this pack to be extremely easy to adjust as I share it with other testers and they often adjust the shoulder strap to different lengths.  The strap also comes with a removable foam pad that is great for saving your shoulders.

When all is said and done and you no longer want your bag, Timbuk2 has a great recycle program where you can send your old, but clean bag in and you get 20% towards a new bag.  Not a bad deal! Good for you and good for the environment.

If there's an activity or sport, I'll generally try it at least once. My main activities include running, hiking, skiing, cycling, camping, backpacking, and pretty much anything else you can think of. I love writing product reviews as I like helping people find the right gear so they will enjoy their activity that much more.
