From its early beginnings in a San Francisco garage, Timbuk2 has always focused on serving those who live life on two wheels. Their bags needed to be able to handle the wear and tear of daily use without fear of damaging the rider’s precious cargo. Not only was durability a factor, but also organization and accessibility. Luckily the team at Timbuk2 is passionate about cycling and have spent years perfecting their craft.
Initially starting as messenger bags being created by a single person, Timbuk2 has expanded to outfit commuters of all kinds. Those who prefer two straps rather than one will love the sleek Uptown backpack. Many of their laptop bags, like the Commute, are made with a TSA-friendly design so you’re not always holding up those long lines at the airport. The Co-Pilot and the Aviator series of wheeled uprights are great for worry-free trips to your flight gate.
Despite these other great products, Timbuk2’s heart has always been tied to home: the sprawling hills and winding roads of San Francisco. A versatile bag for any rider. Road cyclist or beach cruiser. From the daredevil messenger bolting between alleys and busy streets, to the guy who’s just trying to pick up a 6-pack to enjoy with friends, both can pedal confidently knowing Timbuk2 has their back.
Just showed up today. Nice bag but the red is much darker than the photos, so be aware of that going in. Basically it's black and burgundy and I expected dark grey and red.
Excellent pockets and organization. The top right pocket is lined with fuzzy soft material, the rest are unlined but are protected with easy pull zippers. The secret strength to this backpack is its ability to keep things like your laptop charger and other bits separated and away from each other, instead of forcing you to jam them all in one pocket. The laptop pocket is tight for a 15" macbook pro, but it fits. The padding is thin around the edges so to expect it to be able to protect your laptop from a drop off a desk. And that's something worth noting - the bag does not sit. It will fall over due to its construction and round bottom. There is room and an extra slot for a tablet or very thin laptop in addition to a normal sized 15" laptop. The unit is well constructed and I use it every day. One problem is the light material color picks up dirt and doesn't clean well. So if you plan on actually using this backpack, stick with a darker color material. However, the brighter colors are great for bikers and pedestrians, so I guess you have to weigh that choice too.
I bought this for my boyfriend as a commuting bag to replace a messenger bag, and he already loves it. Fairly lightweight with lots of storage without looking bulky on him or me (admittedly we're both pretty tall with an athletic build).
Great bag. Large enough to hold a binder and computer. Two compartments inside. Very sturdy and well made. I work in the construction industry and this bag will hold up well on sites.
Smart looking bag. Nice size, but the flap is awkward and doesn't close with even a scosh of and overstuff. Plus, the bag itself is heavy, 2 lbs. With all my essentials it was just too much.
Adorable. I am 5'and 120lbs. This sits on waist and around body very well. I can put iPhone 6s both small or long wallet, chapstick, keys. I am sure you could add a bit more but those are my necessary items. Great for anyone not wanting to carry much and still look good. It's just super cute. Nice thick sturdy material but not heavy at all.
I bought this fanny for my daughter who likes to wear them to concerts. I fell in love with this bag! The leather is so soft. I found it very hard to give it away, might have to get one for myself. I recommend this highly.
I really love this bag! Like the others mentioned, the magnetic clasps are a little weak, but this was not a deal breaker for me, since the rest of the design was so perfect. I am, however, sending this bag (in the Stargaze color) back...because the canvas portions or navy BLUE, not black as it appears in the photos. I will be reordering in the Silhouette color scheme.
Keep in mind this is a small backpack - to be used as a substitute for a small hand back. Not for serious outdoor adventures. Otherwise I love it. It's soft fabric with leather accents. My one complaint is that the main flap does not latch securely closed. It's just a magnetic clasp which can be very easily opened by pick pockets. For that reason it gets a "4".
Great bag. The top/main area is zippered. Perfect for plane travel. Very roomy, the bag has structure so you can fit a lot in it and still find what you need. The cross-body strap is adjustable and very comfortable. Easy to clean. This is my go-to for my 2nd carry on bag for airplane travel. I was able to fit a raincoat, thin cardigan, books, water bottle and iPad with some room to spare.
