Timbuk2 has sewn made-to-order backpacks and bags in San Francisco since 1989. Made in San Francisco is the heart and soul of our business and culture. Customers customize bags on timbuk2.com or in the Timbuk2 retail store, we cut and sewn them in our San Francisco factory, and ship them out within two business days (whoosh that's fast!). The result is one-of-a-kind products that are worn loud and proud for decades.
Timbuk2 backpacks are the ultimate in durable practicality for all expeditions big and small. Timbuk2 backpacks offer unparalleled load support, and are exceptionally well designed and durable.
A backpack (also called rucksack, knapsack, packsack, pack) is, in its simplest form, a cloth sack carried on one's back and secured with two straps that go over the shoulders, but there can be exceptions. Lightweight types of backpacks are sometimes worn on only one shoulder strap.
Some backpacks are specifically designed to carry certain items. Common examples include backpacks for small valuable items such as laptop backpacks; and camera backpacks; our popular Power Series backpacks, designed to hold laptop computers in particular, have a padded compartment to hold the computer and medium sized pockets and flaps to accommodate accessories such as charger cables and cordless/corded mice.
