What's in my bag May 1st, 2011

That's my first shot of my bag since I succumbed to the charm of Timbuk2. The fact is that I initially did not want a Timbuk2, but Crumpler, which was my initial choice didn't have bags that small. So after a long search I decided to take a second look at Timbuk2. It turned out that the initial design, which I didn't like at all was changed. Before the Timbuk2 bags were a big stuff-it-all area and a small pouch kind of hanging above that, which were the smaller pockets. I examined very carefully their bags online (yes, believe it or not, there is no store in Zurich, Switzerland officially distributing them). I fell in love with the new X-small design and the possibility to customise the colours.


Actually what was my primary goal is to have a very small but highly functional bag, which while limiting the amount of things I lug around will allow easy access to every item I manage to stuff in it.


The above might look much, but it really doesn't feel like this when it's in the bag and you really have to see my earlier bags if you think this is heavy.


Oh, iPad owners note this - your iPad will perfectly fit in that back (slash) pocket of the X-small Timbuk2 bags, even if it is in a small sleeve (mine, a Tucano, is not shown on the above picture).


So here is what I ordered:

Custom Messenger

size: X-small

ballistic nylon spinach / ballistic nylon limeade / ballistic nylon blue

binding: navy

logo: navy

liner: orange

slash pocket

reflector tabs

right handed


Would love if you like, or fave the picture or if you link externally to it to leave a short comment on what you like about it.

    That's one hell of a collection you've got there!!

    PS: Right handed bag? Never heard that in context of bags. Could tell a bit more about it?
  • boncey PRO 4y

    I believe Timbuk2 offer their bags in left-handed or right-handed configuration.
    It's something to do with which side the adjustment buckle sits on I think.
  • Do8y 4y

    boncey Yep. If the buckle is facing front when the bag is on your right, then it's right handed.
  • Bharath Kishore 4y

    So besides that, wouldn't there be any differences in the configuration of the pockets/compartments?
    I'm left handed, hence the curiosity. I've noticed certain aspects of bags which are comfortable to the right handed but not if you are otherwise. Never occurred to me that such a level of customization is possible.
  • Do8y 4y

    Bharath Kishore I never had other Timbuk2 bags, as mentioned above, but neither the customising options, nor the website suggest any further differences.

    And I thought my bag was stuffed with things:)
  • Do8y 4y

    Sandstroem82 To be perfectly honest, I don't consider this to be much in any way. OK, maybe as a number of items, but it' nothing as a volume.

    I have a left-handed Timbuk2 but unfortunately the pockets are still right handed, in particular the "Napoleon pocket" which opens on the side (picture Napoleon's hand in his jacket...)

    Livescribe // yay or nay??
  • Do8y 4y

    ikera Kerry. John Kerry. Most definitely YAY! Although as with most gadgets, you have to weigh your motives to want one. I have a fast talking boss, and whenI work on projects, where brainstorming sessions could take up to hours this is a life saviour. It is great for students too.

    Although I usually find a use for every gadget, outside of such situations it would be simply an expensive pen. Contrary to the general opinion, the paper for it is not that expensive - just compare it to good notebooks and you'll know what I mean. And the sync to Evernote (or Google documents, if it's your thing) is priceless.

    I like that SIGG Steelworks

    The Swiss Passport looks amazing. I've never seen one until now and I also Google'd it to see more photos. It definitely does not look like a governmental document, it's a piece of art in my opinion.
