I have been using a regular Timbuk2 messenger bag with my MacBook AIr 13 and putting her in a semi hard sleeve by caselogic. I have a new Command bag and am not sure if it is padded enough as it comes to just put the MacBook Air in naked. I like it better that way because the bag is even smaller.

Does anyone know or have thoughts?? Thanks!

Down by the river
I've got a Timbuk2 Command bag as well, my 13" MBA wears a Moshi iGlaze skin and I just toss the laptop into the bag. It traveled with me all of 2014 (100k+ air miles) and 1/2 of 2013 (wearing different skins, always in the same bag) and is still in very good shape.

With that said, I'd think that anything you'd do for additional padding / protection will be above and beyond the call of duty. :)

Thanks. I appreciate it. I have an iPearl case that I have on it. So, I think between the Timbuk2 protection and the iPearl case I will be ok. It just goes home to office. Not anywhere near 100k air miles!! I love the bag! Highly recommended!

Strap length

I have a separate question in regards to the Command messenger... I recently received the classic messenger, but did not like it due to the strap length. I suppose, I do not like wearing it like a bicycle messenger, but more across the body and sitting at my hip. Does the Command messenger have a longer strap that would allow me to wear it like that, or is it like the Classic?

I depends on how tall you are. I have the a Classic Timbuk2 messenger as well. I is the large. If I let strap out as far as it will go it is just at my hip and I am 5'9". I have the medium Command. With it all the way out it is just above my hip. About half way in it rides across the small of my back.
