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.

    Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

    I bought this bag because I needed something durable and bike-friendly for all of my adventures. It has been through sweat, rain, and mud, and is still in great condition. The padding is awesome and weight is nicely distributed. I rarely notice I'm wearing it unless I've really stuffed it full. I can fit so much in this bag, and yet it doesn't feel or look huge on my tiny 4'11" body. The only complaint I have is that it does occasionally let a little water in through the zipper areas, even if it's closed. But this only happens if it is really pouring down. I got caught biking home one day and the rain was unimaginably powerful, which is the only time any water has gotten in. And even then it was only a little water. But for normal showers it does the job. I love having so many pockets to organize my stuff, and find that I prefer this bag over any of my other bags.

    Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

    I'm a graphic design student, advent biker/ longboarder, as well as constant walker (I live 1 mile by my campus so I walk daily) I've been looking for a backpack that is high quality/ has great durability/ and has a lot of storage space (with a good price) for a long time and I'm happy to say that I finally found it! This bag offers a lot of support as well, with the cushioned bit on the back, along with buckle pieces for the chest and adjustable straps for those who need it closer or looser to their body. This bag fits EVERYTHING. My 15" laptop in a sleeve, lunch bag, a couple note books, laptop charger, planner, my chromebook and tablet too if I wanted it (all in the big compartment. I'm exceptionally impressed as well with the other compartments that will hold things like my phone, keys, wallet, pencils/ pens, etc. You name it, and it can hold it-- I've attached a series of pictures as well with how deep the pockets go and with low LARGE the water bottle holder is. That was also a concern/ important piece for me. It's been able anything from a small mason jar to a large water bottle-- the mesh is very deep and stretchy.

    Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

    I've loved Timbuk2 bags for years and after looking for a not too large bag to carry my stuff around I purchased the Spire. This bag is made of tough durable nylon and has a rubberized water resistant front to it, but the sides are still ballistic nylon, so I wouldn't say it's completely waterproof if that's what you're looking for....!

        Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

        I use to carry around a huge swissgear bag that could handle my 15" mac, clothes for traveling, work and personal gear. That bag could carry everything! But eventually the strap broke. I didn't want to get the same bag (it wasn't very eye pleasing) but I needed the new bag to do the same.

        After lots of research, looking at price and space quality, this was it, the Timbuk2 Spire. I got it in goldrush. AND I LOVE IT! It looks great, feels great, and carries everything (a little less clothes tho, but more than what I expected!). I beat this bag up and it is holding up just find. We have been together going on 5 months, and no signs of wearing down.

        Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

        I've used this bag for both personal and work travel and commuting. It's s nice bag but lacks pockets and features that even a cheaper messenger bag has (no key hook??).

        If you have both hands this bag is decent but frustrating. It's shape will prevent it from standing up so make sure you tilt it right or else it will come crashing down.

        I'm now with it the use of my left hand, temporarily we hope. This bag is down right infuriating with one hand. Good luck getting the top to stay open with one hand and again the shape causes it to fall or side to the ground. All while trying to get something out of put a laptop in. I've almost torched the bag on several occasions. Just because of those two things.

        I will say it does hold up well in rain for not being weather proof. Stuff in side was damp but not wet after getting caught in a moderate downpour.

        I'll be selling this bag and looking for something else. It's been almost two years and the bag has held up well, but so well I can't keep the top to stay open in its own.

        I also had to take the strap that closed across your chest off. It was realty uncomfortable.

              Bought this as a gift. My plan was to stuff it full of books before I gave it to my boyfriend. That plan didn't work out because there was so much room in the backpack I couldn't possibly fill it. It's like Mary Poppins' bag, but with more pockets. My boyfriend loves the backpack and carries it everyday as his briefcase. He also uses it when we travel.

                  Comments about Spire Laptop Backpack:

                  This is one of the best backpacks I have ever owned. The best thing about this bag is it is actually more comfortable when riding then actually carrying around.

                  When I first bought this bag I only had a bike to get to school, run errands, and even buy groceries. In all of these aspects, this bag exceeds expectations. I even used it to go on a 4 day vacation and it fit everything just fine.

                  It is large enough to hold everything I use (laptop, charger, 4 composition books, TI-84 calculator, a food container, a wrench, an alan key set, a sweater, and headphones) and then some. Even though the bag is not waterproof, it is VERY weather resistant. I have gotten the bag thoroughly soaked on many occasions and the only water damage is very small parts of my notebooks. One of my favorite features on this bag is the u-lock holder which i use everyday and can be access with both straps still on (which is nice).

                  One of the only things I dislike about this bag is the pocket just inside the main compartment that can hold pens, a charger, etc. If it is not closed when trying to stuff books into the bag sometimes they get caught on it. The solution is just to make sure its closed after you use it. Other than that, FANTASTIC bag.
