About Timbuk2

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.

    I was searching for a backpack that looked professional enough to take on business trips and big enough to fit the stuff that doesn't fit in my company branded messenger. The Timbuk2 Command Pack fits the bill on all the above and the TSA friendly laptop system is really convenient. I only was asked once out of 10 times by TSA to take my laptop completely out and place in a bin. The main pocket capacity is larger and deeper than I expected and I like how you can taper the bottom with the straps to make it slimmer when I want to carry by the side strap like a brief case. Only 2 things.. I wish the main pocket had some smaller pockets to put things in bc like I said, its pretty deep and a bit difficult to grab stuff at the bottom when swinging it around on one shoulder. I also echo what one reviewer said about it being a bit inconvenient how you have to fold over the strap to access the laptop pocket. However, I can still pull out my laptop without folding over the strap but its slightly more difficult but not a big deal bc I'm not constantly taking it out. Overall, its a great bag, durable, professional looking and worth the price.
  • Femme Utility Tote Posted: Sep 20, 2016 Reviewer: from Overall: 1 Stars Comfort: 1 Stars Look: 1 Stars
    I purchased a FEMME Utility Tote from Timbuk2's online store this year. However, two of the rivets have fell out after less than months of use. After searching the web, I found I'm not the only person suffering from this problem. Obviously, this bag has serious quality problem. Even worse, I met the worst customer service in my lifetime. Their warranty department response to me after 3 weeks of waiting time. They asked me send my bag to my local dealer for repair, who doesn't have any spare spare parts for the rivets. I told them this condition and never ever got a reply again. Its 2 months ago. I've bought not only one Timbuk2's products before since I thought they have really bright and useful design. But now I really regret for the purchase. If you like their bag, you have better think about their quality and customer service.

  • Commute Messenger Bag - Medium Posted: Sep 19, 2016 Reviewer: Evan Siegel from Westfield, NJ Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    This bag is great. It is made very well. I really like that there is a drink holder on each side. It was important to have a handle on top as well as a shoulder strap. Velcro closure a plus as I don't always use the clips. The inside has nice netted pockets that I use for a laser measure. Overall I am very happy with this bag.

    This bag pilled up horribly after the very first use. Too bad, as it was a sweet bag in every other respect!
  • Classic Messenger Bag - Large Posted: Sep 5, 2016 Reviewer: Tom from Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 4 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I struggled with the strap placement and bag placement for my first few rides. It caused a bit of back pain but now that I have adjusted properly and focus on packing properly this bag is quickly becoming my favorite. Plenty of pockets in this bag - I have heard of some people complain the newer bags have less pockets but I have not seen it as a hindrance.
  • Command Messenger Bag - Large Posted: Aug 22, 2016 Reviewer: from Jackson, WY Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    This bag is BIG! And it seems to get the job done. The hook closures take some getting used to.
  • Tuck Pack Posted: Aug 14, 2016 Reviewer: PlainsDawn from Overall: 3 Stars Comfort: 4 Stars Look: 3 Stars
    I thought I'd give this bag a try for my son who prefers to just throw everything together and go for school. It's a very well made bag, but it is pretty big for a 14 year old. I also got the navy bag, which has a black interior and makes it hard to see what's inside. If you're looking for super durable bag that's like a cinch bag in style but roomy like a duffel.

    You have the most ignorant fucking search feature i have ever seen. Wonder why i only buy from Amazon. I want a water proof jacket with a 2 way zipper and a fucking knife pops up, and shoes pop up. You're fucked in the head. Zapped out of there what a waste of time Good luck

    Uh, wow! What can I say? THIS BAG IS HUGE!!! It is really more like a weekender tote. I can get about four days worth of clothes in this bag, even with the inside divider. I'm not sure exactly what Timbuk2 was thinking when making this. The organization is good, but it is just way too big to be carried every day. It would break your shoulders even if it were only half filled.
