Shoulder Office Command Centre - Timbuk2 Tuesday August 19, 2008

When I was in Austin, I kind of felt like an outcast. (insert sarcasm) I had a dilapidated PC and not a swanky MacBook. My Virgin cell phone didn’t have coverage and was essentially an elaborate paper weight, while all the cool kids were flashing their new iPhones… And to top it all off I was stuck with a raunchy old 20 dollar laptop case, while everyone was fronting stellar new Timbuk2 bags.

Needless to say, I’ve been itching to pick-up a new Timbuk2 bag since then. So you can understand my excitement when my Shoulder Office Command Centre arrived in the mail from UPSucks.

Yes, I may have been overcompensating as I devilishly crafted my custom made messenger bag at 3:00 in the morning. But at 18.8 inches wide and 10 inches tall, this isn’t a mere bag…

This is a f#$king Shoulder Office Command Centre. Fully loaded with a corduroy laptop shield, reflective tags, a coffee chalice holder and a cell phone strap … All it’s missing is a f#$ing whammy bar. It’s pure heaven

Yes, I know I tend to exaggerate somethings, but it really is a phenomenal product.

See, the large custom made Timbuk2 Laptop messenger is not a mortal of a bag; it’s the equivalent to a mobile office/command centre. As someone who spends most of their time bouncing from client meetings to home to work to ridiculous night shifts, this bag is a Godsend. Large enough to carry files, portfolio examples, cell phones, and a variety of key fobs and laptops – it is a new critical part of my business. Plus its design perfectly molds to my back, preventing shoulder pain and back pain. Plus did I mention Timbuk2 bags are customizable … Did you notice the Armadillo colors.

So are there any real down falls to the Large Messenger Bag? Well besides the fear this mighty bag might not be carry-on worthy or the constant human damage it inflicts on our fine city’s poor public transit riders, there really is no down fall to this great laptop bag. The only one downfall is the pure size of the bag, which was my own error.
