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.

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 Especial Primo Waterproof Messenger Bag:

    Been using it on my short commute to and from the office, it's fairly comfortable, straightforward design, solid construction, only wish they would have added 1 or 2 more compartments to the bag. The strap is only really made to use as a cross body strap, which is great for cycling use, might not be the best casual carry option.

    all in all, still a pretty awesome bag

    Comments about Especial Primo Waterproof Messenger Bag:

    This bag has a lot if great features. Those are already named above. So far, it wears well and has enough space for what I wish to do with it, which is a basic commute and keeping all my things dry in the rain. The only downside is that it has only 4 pockets. The main compartment which has lots of space, a zip up compartment on the front beneath the flap, another smaller pocket big enough to fit a charger or a small book and lastly a small pocket on the side for a water bottle. This bag has no organizational pockets or places for pens and other gear. This means that unless you want your things crashing together all inside the same compartment, you will need to purchase another organization pouch for your smaller things. So youre looking at an extra 20-50 dollars depending on your tastes and preferences. I wish they would have added a couple more pockets or some organizational space in the large main compartment. Great bag, but could have been great with some minor additions. Unfortunately, the fact that it has so few pockets and no organization space is not something that they inform you about in their description of the bag.

    Cons

    • Awkward Strap
    • Not enough compartments
    • Overly Complicated Strap
    • Strap Not For Small Frame

    Best Uses

    • Day Trips

    Comments about Especial Primo Waterproof Messenger Bag:

    I can't figure out what all the clips on the strap are for since only the length is adjustable. An extra long length of strap hangs down with a clip on the end that flaps when I ride. I will cut it off and seal the end of the strap. The inner compartment is not sealed so water gets in at the edges of the to flap.

    The bag is awkward to carry unless it is worn as a messenger bag.

    A sealed zippered inner compartment, some inner zippered compartments and dividers to keep computer separated from other small items would help and perhaps better justify the high price.

    Comments about Especial Primo Waterproof Messenger Bag:

    I love how light weight this bag is. The previous review about the strap concerned me. I've noticed that some of the pictures of the strap have it threaded backwards. I have not problems with the strap at all. Bomber bag that's very light weight, water resistant, and practical. Only drawback is only one pocket and wish the handle was a little more useful for hand carry. This bag is a winner for me.

        It's a great bag, but the strap slips - it doesn't have the cam that most Timbuk2 messenger bags has. Also, it's rainproof, not waterproof - it's not at all submersible.
