Your commute just got better. A front zipper and cross strap allow for increased accessibility and comfort on-the-go. Created in reaction to the rise of mighty TSA in American airports, the Commute Messenger s laptop compartment unzips to lie flat so you don t have to remove your laptop at airport security, and its waterproof TPU flap helps keeps your gear dry in a drizzle. Additionally, this laptop messenger bag has external water bottle pockets and a silly amount of internal organization for pens, mice, cords, and badges, and our beloved red key fob. Thou shall never dig for thy keys or be last through the security line again.
Customer reviewsOverpriced Small Canvas Sack -- Red Stain
This oxide color canvas bag has red stains on the bottom and top of the main side zipper others have reported this as well. The red stain detracts from the appearance. The bag seems sturdy though the plastic seal around the top zipper looks like it will crack and disintegrate in not too long of a time. The ability to tuck conceal one or both of the shoulder straps out of the way would be a useful modification for this sack it s small enough to use one strap to carry but then the other just flops around in the way.
