    Today's long overdue review is on the fantastic Timbuk2 Especial Messenger. There are not a ton of reviews of this bag out there, so I thought I'd help the community out. This bag was purchased by myself and not a review sample.

    To be honest, after a month and a half of use, this messenger has replaced my Flapjack as my preferred EDC bag. Despite the lack of internal organization, key lanyard and overall higher price, this bag has won me over. If you see me out and about with a bag on my shoulder, it'll probably be this one.

    Malama Pono!

    I know right? Now that I have two bags with the fidlock magnet buckles it'll be a feature I look for on future bags.

    Are you glad you went with the large or do you wish you had gotten the medium?

    I think I made a good choice. I bought the medium at first but returned it for the large. The capacity is worth the slightly higher weight and physical dimensions.
