Veterans of the messenger bag scene, the ‘Classic’ follows Timbuk2’s time-worn formula: simplicity of style with quality materials.

Available in a range of colours and models, the tough three-panel Ballistic nylon outer is abrasive resistant, while the inside is fully waterproof lined. Outside stowage includes one small zippered pocket and a hand pocket. Inside there’s an organiser pouch with pen pockets, ID window etc.

Neither the bag nor the shoulder pad is padded but the stabilising strap can be worn on either side. There’s a big buckle for cinching it in on the fly, though we noticed the action isn’t as tight as older models. Two snap-on reflective tabs catch the light well and a deep and wide base makes for easy packing, with four velcro patches that hold the flap down securely.
