Timbuk2 D-Lux Race Stripe Laptop Messenger Bag
Timbuk2 incorporated a ton of user feedback into the D-Lux racing stripe messenger bag to create a laptop bag that works with and without your machine. Essentially a massively upgraded version of the Classic messenger bag, the D-Lux offers plenty of storage, with a large main compartment, a Napoleon side-entry pocket that lets you grab your cash and keys without opening the messenger flap, and a color-coordinated front organizer for storing gadgets, gizmos, and other weird stuff. The bag also includes a slim, studded laptop sleeve that protects computers up to 19 inches (large size). And cyclists will love the racing stripe, which puts a little vroom in your messenger.
Another way that Timbuk2 improved on the Classic was by redesigning the Velcro placement along the top of the messenger flap and sides of the front panel. This new Velcro location makes the bag easier to open, and also helps reduce the much-hated sweater pilling caused by unwanted Velcro contact. Timbuk2 also added a memory-adjust True Fit cam buckle that eliminates daily fit adjustments. Just unclick the cam, put the bag over your shoulder, and lock the cam back in for a perfect fit every time. Other features include a durable ballistic nylon exterior, a waterproof TPU liner, compression straps on the bottom of the messenger, and a coordinating strap pad. Available in three sizes, the D-Lux messenger bag carries a lifetime warranty.
The D-Lux messenger bag holds a ton of gear in its various compartments and pockets.

Born in a San Francisco garage and bred on the backs of messengers in the city streets, Timbuk2 still manufactures its custom bags in the heart of San Francisco's Mission District. For 20 years, the company has been building bags and accessories for urban adventurers with a simple philosophy: to create good-looking, tough-as-hell bags you can truly make your own. Timbuk2 celebrates your individuality, which is why the company invites its customers to design and create custom bags in its Bag Builder. By letting you hack its bags, the company believes it can make bags that work harder for you.
Like rice and beans, Timbuk2 keeps it simple when it comes to being pro-planet. The company makes durable bags that are built to last, so while the competition is piling up in landfills, Timbuk2 bags stay on your back and hugs you for a lifetime.
