You’ll Be Strapping The Timbuk2 Messenger Bag To Your Walker When You’re 90

These Things Last Forever

When I moved to Boulder, CO in 2002 I immediately noticed that everyone was cruising around on bikes with the same bag. They had this little swirly logo I’d never seen before. The first guy I talked to about the bag said, “Oh man, I’ve had this thing forever. They’re pretty much indestructible.” That’s all I needed to hear. I picked up a Timbuk2 Messenger Bag the same day. Eleven years later it still functions like it did on day one. Don’t get me wrong – it looks used. But it hasn’t suffered a single tear anywhere.

With a lifetime warranty and customizable colors to choose from, the Timbuk2 Messenger Bag is worth the purchase. Pick one up here.

  • Durable ballistic nylon fabric.
  • Waterproof TPU liner.


  • True fit cam buckle for single-handed adjustments.
