If we're talking traditional messenger bags no one beats Timbuk2. I have two bags (one as my run-around and one with a laptop compartment) and people always comment on how nice they are. Granted, they run more than the standard nylon or plastic bag, but what you get for that is a really well-made bag with a lifetime warranty. Seriously, how many companies have lifetime warranties anymore? Leatherman... Some RAM manufacturers... Yep, that sounds about it.

These are the totes to end all tottiness.  They make many different models and this is only the satchel not the briefcase which is their main attraction.  Their durability is legendary.

Actually, it is. Sort of. If you're talking about strictly the style of bags used by bike messengers than no, but most people use it as a generic term for any shoulder bag and that one actually starts as a satchel but can be converted into a backpack. Kinda nifty, actually.

Chrome bags are very nice.  The founders of Chrome (no longer with Chrome) started another company called Mission Workshop.

I have many bags by Timbuk2.  They make very nice gear.  After trying many bags from countless different manufacturers, however, I have to say that Mission Workshop's messenger bags are by far my favorites, definitely in terms of build quality and design (I love the utility of the roll-top design), and just as much in terms of comfort while worn.  I have their big Vandal backpack, and their classic line of messengers in all three sizes (Monty, Rummy and The Shed).

 

And, today, I received an email notifying me of this new model by them, called the AP (Advanced Projects) VX Messenger:

I couldn't resist, and just put my pre-order in for this one (in medium).

I still have my large Metropolis, another three years and I may justify replacing it.  I'm still fond of the buckle they use, especially when I have a crapload of books.

Mission Workshop bags looks very nice too. I love the plain colours.

What do you guys think about the timnuk2 d-lux laptop messenger bag? It looks like it might fit the job of a better bag where there's a strap for the shoulder and can fit my netbook as well as when I want to use the laptop and plenty of space. It's priced pretty well too.

post #146 of 260

I'd say get the smallest one if all you care about is fitting a NetBook. Beyond that, however, it's a good bag, just like all Timbuk2 bags. To be honest, I don't think Timbuk2 has good and bad bags. Just good bags that vary in style and size.

Good old Head-Fi, thread for everything. Right. I just got a job in London (yay!), I'll be commuting. Backpacks get in people's way on the tube, sweaty back (lol) and you have to take them off/on when sitting down. Reading the thread is a help... any particular suggestions for someone looking for something smartish, durable, and spacious enough for a work laptop (occasionally), iPad, lunch (most importantly!) and the odd bits and bobs? Oh and a big water bottle too. I do guzzle like it's going out of fashion. Compartments would be preferable as you often see the outsides of these bags but not the insides.

Timbuk2 bags look nice, though not as nice as leather. They are, however, very durable. There's the Saddleback Leather link up higher for more expensive but very high quality laptop bags that look very smart, indeed.

 

Otherwise maybe try to find a bag kitted out as a camera bag as that will have movable compartments.

post #149 of 260

I do like the Chrome ones. I won't need to take a laptop very often, so don't really need a dedicated area, but it'd be nice to have something I could dump an iPad into. Perhaps I'll just get a very tough, durable sleeve for it so it can just be put in.

Who makes your laptop? Booq does a very nice computer sleeve, though they tend to be more Mac-specific.
