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.
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.
Bought my first Timbuk2 bag or rather pouch in Singapore at Orchard Cineleisure and it is the Timbuk2 Shagg Bag 2012. It cost S$35. It it an accessory pouch that can be attached to the straps of your Timbuk2 bag.
In my case, I am attaching it to my Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011. You can store iPhone, earphone, keys or even coins in that pouch which can be access easily since it is in front.
I got my Timbuk2 bags when I was in San Francisco last December. One of my readers wrote in and asked a couple of questions regarding the Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011. So I thought instead of replying him via email, I might as well share it with other readers whom might find it useful as well.
I bought the Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011 (420d nylon gunmetal/blue/black) for US$99 which after 8.75% California after tax comes up to US$107.66 (S$134.18).
