It’s no coincidence that Timbukt2 messenger bags and backpacks boast everything you’d want in a work bag, including roominess, durability, style, a streamlined design, and compartments for everything. The brand was founded by a San Francisco-based bike messenger who wanted to make the perfect messenger bag accessible to anyone navigating a busy world to get the job done.
Here are some of the top-quality bags on sale for a steal today—and each of them come in several neutral colors to complement your personal aesthetic.
Frequent flyers and jetsetters will love being able to send this TSA-compliant bag through security without removing their laptops, tablets, smartphones, and any other device. And everyone else will love how insanely efficient this bag is, with easy-reach compartments that let you individually store and access your laptop, powerbank, chargers, phone, and more—plus a handy way to retrieve your boarding pass and ID.
This messenger bag even has Napoleon pockets—which let you access your goods without opening the front flap—as well floating pockets to protect delicate things like sunglasses. And of course, there are pouches for all of the notebooks, pens, paperwork, and everything else you need to get down to business. It’s all protected with layers up layers of padding and weather-proof liner, too.
Timbuk2 Command Laptop Messenger Bags are on sale today only for as low as $73 depending on size.
“I think I spent two weeks researching messengers, briefs, and backpacks when the time came for a new bag. I made an excellent choice! This bag is everything I was hoping it would be,” wrote another. “My laptop, a Dell XPS 13 inch (9365) is swimming in a size small but feels well protected, for fun I shoved my ThinkPad T540p in there, a huge 6 lbs computer that I recently retired, while very snug it even fits in a small! I travel for work about 20 times a year via jet, I believe this bag will be just as at home in an airport or under a plane seat as it is for everyday carry here in town.”

“The dark and handsome Command TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack yields surprising storage,” wrote a satisfied customer. “I've owned a lot of daypacks and the straps on the Command are among the best I've tried: stays on my shoulder and doesn't slip or spread sideways. The flexible back panel is padded, contoured and textured to allow airflow between the backpack and you, making for a cooler ride. And, if you break a sweat, there's a bottle opener on the strap to crack open a cold one.”

“I decided to ditch the handbag and get a nice, somewhat feminine backpack for daily use instead,” wrote one happy customer. “I looked around a lot and came back to Timbuk2...The subtle design receives many compliments, believe it or not, all from women around my age - 53. The bag is sturdy and comfortable on my back and holds a makeup bag, extra shoes, wallet, iPad, water bottle etc...so I only need one bag instead of several for days when that is how my life is rolling.”
