Timbuk2 Small Custom Laptop Messenger
Weight: 1.8 lb.
Dimensions: 15 by 10 by 5 in.
PROS Talk about individuality. Timbuk2 lets you custom-build your bag: Small, medium, or large? In subtle gray or deep gold? Want an external smartphone holster or an iPod case for an extra $20? The shoulder strap and pad are easily adjustable, making the lightweight bag that much more comfortable to carry. Along with three zippered pockets comes a thickly padded laptop sleeve.
CONS A generous multipouch pocket lacks partitions for keeping files separate. The single-flap design forces you to open the lid to access almost anything.
BUY THIS ONE IF ... You're a cost-conscious hipster who doesn't mind a little disorder beneath the sharp exterior.
