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.

I love the product but it needs more work

I love the color and it's very stylish. My major and only gripe is that I've barely had it and it seems to be falling apart.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

I Love My New Backpack

I love this backpack. That said, I wish that you made a shorter torso version by shortening the solid back panel. This would allow my laptop to fit as it does now, but would not have the solid back panel falling below the curve of my back/butt intersection. This would also make the backpack slightly lighter.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Kind of disappointed

I bought a Timbuk2 Spire because I wanted a waterproof backpack, and replaced a perfectly fine Ogio Squadron as my daily work bag. The only thing the Timbuk2 has going for it is the waterproof. My Ogio was bigger, more comfortable, had more pockets, and easier to access. I fight with this Spire everyday, its inconvenient to access the laptop sleeve from either the main opening or the zipper on the back, nothing stays where I put it (I might as well be carrying all my stuff in a sack), and the straps are narrow with minimal padding. My sternum strap also broke within the first week, but to Timbuk2's credit they replaced it for free via the warranty. I'm going to keep using the Spire to avoid the possibility of rain soaking my stuff (again), but overall I can't say that I'm satisfied with this backpack.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Excellent bag with a reasonable price

Okay I bought this bag with very high expectation which it didn't disappoint!!!! At first I had to sold my Wingman carry-on since it wasn't designed for heavy use, i.e. SLR Camera and big water bottle On the other hand I bike up and down the hill with books every single day (yes I am a student) The only thing this bag is missing that stopping it from becoming a better travel bag (which has TSC) is hip strap (see aviator 2015) So we can say that this is a bag can be used for both daily and travel (which it is) and the half TSC design can help you release some weight from your shoulder (no kidding) However the TSC also has some weight itself but it really helps a lot as you are carrying more weight!! The only thing I don't like about this bag is that the bottom seem so thin which I am afraid it will wear out fast :-( Overall this is a very decent bag!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I wish I'd bought something else

It's pretty big but the small pockets get tight when the rest of the bag is full. My water bottle doesnt really fit when my computer is in the sleve. I don't use a Mac, but my 15" laptop barely fits and isn't accessible through the zipper. The velcro strap to secure it is at least 6" too short. On the other hand it IS VERY well made, just poorly desiged

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Great backpack

I really like this backpack, you can add things to it with the straps. My friends like it also. I have used it for work and then use it for a camera bag also.

Spire Laptop Backpack Army/Acid. Fabulous backpack!

Love this backpack! It is constructed with a deep core pocket, while also providing several little pockets to keep all of your items well organized. There is also a nifty back zipper that allows you access to your laptop on the fly, and the pocket for your laptop is also well designed so that your laptop doesn't suffer any wear or tear. It is also set up with several loops that aids to hooking on several accessories like keys, helmet, etc., while also having a sweet velcro loop for your bike lock. I also appreciate the bottle opener for any emergency situations. Though I wish that the top hook was metal to lockdown the backpack, overall this is a really great investment. It's great for all of you professional out-goers out there!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
