These bags are perfect for those out there who might need to carry more with them when they decide to go on vacation. You want to carry your laptop, your camera, and everything else you can. The Closer is great for someone who doesn't want to carry anything heavy on their back.

You'll have no problem toting it around when you explore but the Command is a bit larger. If you want to bring some serious equipment with you, buy the Command. Timbuk2 made sure to include additional space and protection for your electronics.
