Downsizing what I carry...

Was this a gift?: No


I ordered this because I've been looking to downsize into a smaller bag. (the former one was a custom size larger messenger. This involved among other things buying a new laptop.

The EULA indicates that it doesn't quite fit the 11" macbook air. superficially this is true however the dimensions are so close that it wedges in without trouble. none of the timbuk2 sleeves appear to be sufficiently compact to hold an 11" air and fit. So, wool felt sleeve purchased elsewhere solves this issue.

the EULA would be perfect for this application if it were ~ 1/2" larger in width/depth. The back sleeve if you order will not fit the macbook air 11" but does fit an ipad in a protective jacket.

result is, I get:

macbook air
micro4/3 camera with pancake lens
power supply
assorted cables in the old medium size timbuk2 clear bag
passport sleeve

and it's full but not bulging.

The eula could be perfect, It isn't but it's rather good. given that it's made of the same material (indeed same color/fabric/lining) as my custom messener I expect that in 5 years I'll still be using it unless I've had to go back to a larger computer. the strap length adjustor is friction based and is not as stiff as the strap adjustor on the larger bags, so it periodically requires adjustment.

eula, loaded
