Company Background:

Timbuk2 has been especially influential in popularizing the messenger bag as an urban fashion accessory. It was founded in 1989 by a San Francisco bicycle messenger with an old sewing machine.

Our catchy name, three-panel design, distinctive “swirl” logo, and the fact that we’re “Made In San Francisco” added to our cachet.

Their Range of Bags are Built to Outlast You.

Like rice and beans, they keep it simple when it comes to being pro-planet. they make durable bags that are tough as Hell and built to last. So while their competition is piling up in landfills, they stay on your back, hugging you for a lifetime. Tales of Timbuk2 bags outlasting jobs, lovers, pets, and train wrecks are not uncommon. These stories give them the confidence to guarantee their bags will last a lifetime.

But they know sh*t happens. So if you find yourself in a place where you can’t possibly love your bag any more and you’ve simply had enough, we give you an out. They will take your bag off your hands and find it a new (loving) home through Timbuk2’s bag recycling program.
