Which Timbuk2 bag for me?

I’m seriously considering getting a Timbuk2 Laptop Messenger bag for my forthcoming travels. I love my current laptop bag (a Waterfield sleeve with strap) but I’m needing something with a bit more room. The only thing I’m undecided on, really, is the color/pattern. So, blogosphere: which of the below do you like best? It’s clear that I like the dark orange, and earth tones…but I just can’t make up my mind. So: which do you like best? Vote in the comments!

Orange/brown/orange, but then I like brighter colors and the orange in the brown/orange/brown combo seems to fade in on itself because of the brown. I’m sure the colors will look different in real life, however.

If you’re going to use the bag on daily basis, then my suggestion would be to choose the color that won’t show dirt easily. I have a brown color version for a few months now and glad I made that decision.

I like the orange and gray one, myself. πŸ™‚

I’ll also echo what a few others have said – the orange will probably show dirt more than a darker color would. Though it does have the benefit of being more visible. And in my book, visibility trumps how often you gotta wash it .

Of course, take what I say with a grain of salt. Since I got my iPhone, my reasons for lugging a bag of any kind with me have pretty much disappeared.

Only a post about a bag would bring me out of blog-reading/commenting hibernation, Griffey. Thanks!

I vote for the orange & grey (second last pic). Because it’s teh awesomest.
