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.

We also offer replacement parts for many of those broken and missing reflectors, buckles and straps. You can find them here: Timbuk2 Replacement Parts

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.

Outside of North America Warranty Repair?

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.

Inaccurate advertising on the website. The briefcase didn't fit Thinkpad X1 Yoga as it was advertised on the website. Numerous email communications with Timbuk2 customer service reps led nowhere. Very disappointing.

Comments about Transit Briefcase:

The Transit makes a great smaller cousin to the the command messenger. It has a similar styling but in a smaller package. The small pocket on the flap comfortably fits an Iphone 7 and keeps it close by for easy and quick access.
This bag is great for carrying my 13 inch chromebook, I love the luggage pass through it makes it super easy to fly with and it fits under the seat real easily. It is small and slim, so it is not great if you like to carry a ton of stuff as it will quickly fill up. The slim profile is really useful when going on a crowded

    Comments about Transit Briefcase:

    I love this slim, steam-lined bag for quick business trips. I can fit my Macbook Air 13" in the padded sleeve and get it out easily from the back panel zipper pocket when I'm going through security. I love the front pocket that is fuzzy inside--it fits my iPhone 7 with plenty of extra space for my chapstick so I always have it handy. the shoulder strap has plenty of padding and I can put all the notebooks I travel with along with pens, chargers, etc. in the organization panel and extra pockets. My only gripe is that the metal buckle on the front is a bit tough to unclip. I don't use it much because the velcro is so strong, but it'd be nice if it was a little easier to slide into the loop.

        I've been looking for a smaller lightweight laptop bag for traveling. Has just enough room for what's needed for my meetings. The front pockets are big enough for chargers, wallet, sun glasses, etc.. There's a back compartment for a notebook. Very happy with the purchase.

            Holds exactly what I need for street outreach including a small nalgene, a narcan kit, 2 phones and my notebook. I've found commuter bags too big to lug around walking all over the city. The transit bag is exactly the right size.

                I absolutely love this bag. It fits my laptop and all my essentials. I am a minimalist, so it works perfectly for me, but people who like to carry lots of stuff might prefer a classic messenger. I would buy this bag again and again - though I won't need to, because T2 bags last forever. Thx!!
