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.

    Great bag; looks great, shoulder strap is easy to adjust. Only issue is that once you start filling up the pockets it has little room to expand and can get uncomfortable. Recommendation: Plan well on the size you need

    I love this little bag. I got it for my 11.6in laptop and it fits in the main compartment just fine. There is plenty of room for a business notebook, pens, power cord, mouse, wallet, etc. I I think a smaller tablet would fit better in the padded sleeve, but it works well as is. I am about to order a second one as a backup, you can't beat the price either!

    Needed a TSA friendly bag for a frequent commute between BOS and DFW. Just the right size. Holds everything I need (MacBook Air and iPad. Plus room for my Contigo. Looks sharp. Fits under the coach seats with room for my feet.

    Great sturdy bag with an adjustable strap. The size is perfect for me to take my camera out on our club photo shoots. It will hold my mirrorless camera and also my wallet. Interior pockets will hold my other small items along with my keys. The clips to open and close the bag is a little difficult to use but there is velcro to keep the flap closed. The waterproof lining is a beige color so the bag interior isn't a black hole.

  • Command Messenger Bag - Large Posted: Reviewer: Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Got this bag for my husband. It's big and the quality looks good. The texture of the bag is also nice, kind of like a wool suit. It also comes with a chest strap to keep it secure against you if need to move quickly or ride a bike. Zappos also gets a big thank you on this order as well. The first bag arrived with a broken clasp and they replaced it in no time! Thanks Zappos!
  • Tuck Pack Posted: Reviewer: Overall: 4 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 4 Stars
    The bag overall is a great size and is very roomy. The top could have 1 inch or 1.5 inches more material so when folded and closed it would keep a tighter fit. The front/ size zipper pockets are easy to open/ close and the side zipper laptop access pocket it clutch. The straps are not super plush but are padded and so far have been supportive on heavier loads. Overall a simple yet roomy bag that is well worth the price.

    This is a well made and sturdy bag. I like the quick adjustment to shorten or lengthen the shoulder strap. Unfortunately this is a little to big for my needs so I will be returning it. I'll probably go back for the extra small size in this same bag.

    Great size bag! I've been searching for a bag to carry my laptop and a few other items without being so large it felt like I could pack the kitchen sink. The side zippers took a little bit of training to get used to, but they are very convenient. Timbuk2 did an excellent job with this bag. My only complaint is that the zipper gets stuck at times when you zip all the way open.
