It may be a backpack or a messenger bag but as long as it is canvas with minimum flair, you are right in line with this year’s trends in ways to haul your laptop or gaming gear. When you just have to bring all your stuff with you, only the best laptop canvas backpack will do. This means lots of compartments to separate and organize all the little gadgets you must have.
So what does a cool laptop canvas backpack or messenger bag look like? The hottest ticket on this is anything put out by Timbuk2. It could be their Command Messenger bag or their Commute Laptop Messenger bag, as long as it has their brand name on it.
Both the Command and the Commute by Timbuk2 are rugged enough to take whatever you throw at them; it could be airline travel or hefty long bike rides and these canvas packs will stand the test of time. Both are available in three sizes so they can fit any size laptop and have soft padded sleeves for superior protection of your equipment. You can wear them as a messenger bag or carry them as a briefcase. There are numerous extra features on each such as easy access to your keys, or water bottle.
The Commute is more classic looking than the Command, featuring a nice waterproof flap, hard-snap buckles and some heavy Velcro closures. The Command is a lightweight canvas pack with a silent-open and close system. It also has an easy side access and even a pass-through for carrying on rolling luggage. Both are TSA compliant. You can use the side entry pocket to carry your passport without problems. The Timbuk2 bags are very well built, of great quality and sturdy.
Take it up a notch with the Timbuk2 El Rio Hiking Daypack. This is an eye-catching backpack as you will notice right off hand the unusual construction and shape of the outer pocket. Uniquely designed with an edgy and still classic look, it is hard to find a pack equivalent to this concept. Like their other products, the features are centered on storing and protecting your technology. The contrasting details hide one interior slip and three exterior slips, even though at first glance the pack appears small. There is a sternum strap which helps to distribute the weight of heavy items. The pack never looks bulky as heavy things like books compress down nicely.
If there were any suggestions on how to make this a better backpack, it would be for more flair like an inside D-ring for keys, or a hidden pocket for valuables. Some followers of the Timbuk2 line would like to see the ‘girly’ lining replaced and a fleeced-pocket to hold a mouse. Either way, Timbuk2 will continue to get innovative and still provide the cool quality of products they do. And people will still flock to buy what is considered one of the best brands in laptop canvas bags and backpacks.
