Timbuk2 Control Messenger
November 15, 2011

This bag appears to be well made and functional. There is room for a 15 " MacBook Pro and associated gadgets, a couple of magazines and other accoutrements. Not a huge roomy bag like their messengers, but big enough for a laptop and travel essentials. The finish work is very nice, and the quality compares favorably to other bags that I've used. The only negative is that the strap padding is not sticky, so the bag can slide a bit on your shoulder, particularly when it isn't full.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
