We've Got You Covered


Timbuk2's Lifetime Warranty

Timbuk2 products have a lifetime warranty; we stand behind the legendary quality and craftsmanship of all our products. Our warranty is valid only when the Timbuk2 product is purchased through Timbuk2 directly (via timbuk2.com or one of our brick-and-mortar retail stores) or through an Authorized Reseller.

We also embrace the wild, twisty ways of life. If there is a defect in the materials or workmanship we will repair  the bag at our discretion. Damages not covered are those resulting from abuse, normal wear and tear, accidential damage, and cosmetic damages that do not affect the functionality of the bag (such as scratches or stained fabrics). Any damage to, loss of the contents of a bag, loss of use, loss of time, or similar expenses are not covered. The lifetime warranty also does not include our apparel products, such as Timbuk2 t-shirts and hoodies.

Your Timbuk2 bag is sewn by hand and might contain some slight imperfections. Like Daniel Craig or Marilyn Monroe, the slight imperfections are what add character to an already awesome product.


Warranty & Repair FAQ

What is covered by the warranty?

 Manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship are covered, notwithstanding age. If there is a defect in the materials or workmanship we will repair the bag at our discretion. 
*If your product arrived defective from Timbuk2.com please email Customer Service and we'll move mountains to right your wrong.

What is not covered by the warranty?

Damages not covered are those resulting from abuse, normal wear and tear, cosmetic issues that do not affect the functionality of the bag, and accidental damage. Any damage to or loss of contents of a bag, loss of use, loss of time, or similar expenses are not covered.  Unless a product is designed and stated to be machine washable, washing bags in washing machines can result in damage not covered by our warranty.

Wear and tear is damage that naturally and inevitably occurs as a result of normal use. Regardless of how carefully you use, or how well you care for your bag, it will eventually begin to show age and wear. Usual wear and tear not covered by the lifetime warranty includes changes in color, abrasions, and general breakdown of materials over time.  Some examples of common wear and tear include color fading from sun exposure, worn elastic, and fabric wear, especially in high wear areas such as corners, reflective binding, worn velcro, and worn shoulder or back padding. Some examples of accidential damage are rips or cuts in fabric, animals chewing or clawing on our products, as well as damage arising from airline abuse such as bent or dented luggage handles or damaged/cracked wheels & bottomplates.

What products aren’t covered by your fabulous warranty?

Any headwear, apparel or footwear. Third party attachments and or devices like the Joey power packs or NiteIze blinky lights, or Blue bottle kit accessories like scales, grinders, or cups. Any other third party accessories sold by Timbuk2 but not bearing the Timbuk2 brand.  The items are generally warrantied by their respective manufacturers.

Warranty & Repair Process

North America Warranty or Repair Claim Details

Step 1 - Please select the appropriate link and check out to start a repair claim:

     Please keep in mind that the repair fee payment is held as a pending authorization only - and will never be charged unless the damage or nature of the repair request is not covered under warranty and the bag can be repaired.

After checking out, you will receive an email with instructions and a form to print out. A repair number will be generated and will need to be included with the bag when you send it in for repairs. 


Step 2 - Send us the bag with the Repair number

Please send the bag to the address provided in the repair details email. Be sure to write your repair number on the outside of your package. We recommend using the least expensive shipping method that will provide you with a tracking number and insurance. Timbuk2 is not responsible for parcels lost in transit. Your repair fee covers the return shipping in the lower 48 United States.

  • Package up your bag, include a copy of the repair form with a description of the concern(s).
  • Write the repair number on the outside of the package  (W-XXXXXXX).

Please keep in mind that California State law requires that all items accepted for repair be freshly cleaned. You wouldn't want to dig through someone else's nasty, so help us provide a clean and safe environment for our employees. If we determine that your bag needs to be cleaned, we will return it to you without preforming the repair(s). We do not offer cleaning services. For more information on how to properly clean and maintain your awesome Timbuk2 bag, please see Bag Care.

Step 3 - Evaluation / Repair 

Once your item arrives, our repair team will be evaluate your claim within 7-10 business days and determine if the issues can be repaired and what is covered under the Lifetime Warranty.  Because pictures don't tell the whole story, and we want to give your claim the best possible evaluation, warranty assessemnts are only preformed in person once our repair team receives your bag.  

  •      If the claim issues are covered by the lifetime warranty, we will waive the authorization fee and repair your product. 
  •      If any repairable claim issues are not covered by the lifetime warranty, we will charge the authorization fee and repair your product.

Not sure your bag can be repaired, please contact us.

If you purchased your bag outside of the USA and Canada, please contact us for local representatives that will offer you warranty services. Please provide your proof of purchase and the location for the bag when submitting your claim.  Should your bag require service in the USA, shipping to and from the USA for your Timbuk2 item are your responsibility.

Comments about FEMME Messenger Bag Demi:

This bag looks gorgeous on the shelf, but once I tried carrying it, it looked very rectangular and casual--even though the leather and colors are pretty glam. I thought it could be a great handbag, but it hangs and rides like a messenger all the way. Didn't need another one, so it went back.

    Comments about FEMME Messenger Bag Demi:

    I really wanted to love this bag. It's gorgeous, and I'm sure that it's really durable and would go well in both business and personal environments. However, it's got some serious problems. For starters, there's next to no internal organization. There's a single very small zipper pocket, and a divider that is supposed to make a space for a tablet. There are also small pockets on the outside, but I find them to be too small to compensate for the lack of organization inside. Second, and the major problem, the bag doesn't close well. It's held closed by two pairs of weak magnets, and it's a major hassle to get the magnets to line up so that the bag closes. Even if you do manage to get it closed, it comes open so easily that you might as well have not closed it at all. I've been a TB2 fan for almost a decade, but I'm really disappointed in this bag.

      Comments about FEMME Messenger Bag Demi:

      I purchased the Demi because the other reviews said the messenger was ridiculously large for a purse--I'm glad I did as the demi is a bit large already for my 5'1 frame. Like other reviewers, this bag is missing organization pockets, where there's one no zip pocket when you open the flap, one ipad sleeve type pocket in the center, one phone pocket at the back of the bag, and one zipper pocket on the top flap. The magnetic closure is also flimsy. This bag is mainly made of canvas and is not worth it full priced. I'm a loyal fan of Timbuk2's craftsmanship which is why I'm keeping it.

      Dual Magnets do not actually "secure" the front flap

      By Kaleidocherry

      From Redmond, WA

      About Me: Modern, Practical

      Pros

      • High Quality
      • Stylish

      Cons

      • Not Secure
      • Too Expensive

      Best Uses

        Comments about FEMME Messenger Bag Demi:

        I took a chance on this from a different site because I had a couple hundred in gift certificates there. This bag would be worth the resulting amount if the front flap were more secure, but the magnets did not hold the flap down (and my bag was not overstuffed). I don't feel that this bag is worth the MSRP, even if it had secure buckles on it. I would put this on par, quality-wise and style-wise, with other bags in the $100-200 range.

        But the weak magnets (instead of clips) were a dealbreaker for me, so I returned it. Sorry, Timbuk2.

              I love this bag! I find most messengers overwhelm my 5'4" frame. This one is perfectly sized and my Dell e7420 fits in it (barely, it's not a laptop bag but I knew that prior to purchasing). It's so stylish and sleek, even in the louder crayon box color I got which I really like. It's nicely made too, with good quality hardware and a furry pocket for your phone and other small essentials (love that). I was pleasantly surprised. Don't hesitate to buy for a stylish city bag-you simply can't go wrong if you buy it in a darker color.
