I had a Timbuk2 for a while, and switched to a chrome. ****ing bag is amazing. I carry so much **** around town in it, it's 1000% more comfortable. The timbuk 2 slid around, never felt right, was painful. strap cut into my neck (didn't have the pad). Chrome has a big huge wide amazingly padded and comfy strap, the seatbelt is nice, one handed adjustment. Only thing about it I do not like is with the timbuk2 I had my laptop was nice and cozy and safe, but the chrome 1) has no support and 2) doesn't have any sort of laptop holder. Now I carry my laptop inside of a miniature laptop case inside of my chrome, which isn't too bad but kind of a pain in the ass.
But really, Timbuk2 does suck. Go with a chrome, or RELoad, or Seagull bag or something man. My chrome is my best investment so far I think, I don't have a car so making grocery runs with this thing is awesome. Plus my girl was here in town in Hawaii for a while last week and we packed it full of stuff to go all around the island like towels and changes of clothes. One day it was loaded with snorkel gear. Great bag.
