I was one of the early backer of Flybridge. I backed the project on 29th December 2012 and the project got funded on 1st February 2013 after raising US$19,365 (the goal was US$15,000).

As I was the early backer, I am entitled to get the Flybridge for just US$10 and hence I bought two and shipping is an additional US$10. In total I paid US$30 (S$37.20). Flybridge shipped on 28th February 2013 and I received it on 27th March 2013.

Timbuk2 Command Messenger Bag

I got the Timbuk2 Command Messenger Bag (oxford nylon black in medium size) when I was in San Francisco back in December 2011. It was retailing for US$130 which after 8.75% California tax comes up to US$141.375 (S$176).

This bag is Transportation Security Administration (TSA) friendly in the US because the laptop compartment can be unzipped separately to flatten the bag for it to pass through the X-ray. In this way you do not need to take your laptop out from the bag. I have not tested this in Singapore Changi Airport yet, but my guess is that you still have to take the laptop out from your bag.

Timbuk2 Freestyle Messenger Bag For iPad

Received the Timbuk2 Freestyle Messenger Bag for iPad from my brother as my birthday present last year. I think at that time it is retailing for US$89 (S$111), but it is on offer now, timbuk2.com is selling for US$54 (S$67.40).

Despite it is a bag for the iPad, it is able to fit in a 13″ MacBook Air at the main compartment (not the padded iPad compartment). I am guessing a 11″ MacBook Air should be able to fit in the padded iPad compartment.

I think the Timbuk2 Dime Bag is a discontinued product, I could no longer find it on timbuk2.com. That explains why it is 50% off at Cineleisure’s Timbuk2 shop. The usual price was S$29, and now it is selling for 50% off (S$14.50). The only colors available are red and green.

Do note that the Timbuk2 shop at Cineleisure has moved from #02-03 to #02-10 (beside Xin Wang Hong Kong Café). The shop name has also been changed to Bratpack.
