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.

Excellent bag. Could still be improved

Comments about the Classic Messenger Bag Unicolor

This is a great messenger bag. I am very pleased with the purchase. My previous messenger bag was a older Briggs and Riley BRX. It takes forever to wear them out. It finally uglied out so I got this a Timbuk2. (size=Medium) Here are some positives: - Grab handle is back on the bag rather than on the top of the flap. You can pick it up without the flap being latched. This is goo. - Strap and pad are very good - Front side access pocket is great. I keep my headphones in it so can get them without opening the flap. - Inside material liner is very nice. - Looks great - Lightweight. - Lives up to all of its claims. Things I would improve if I were king of Timbuk2 for a day. - The water bottle pocket is not big enough for anything other than a small water bottle. It needs to be bigger. It should fit my 26 oz Yeti Rambler bottle. This is a daily disappointment. - None of the inside front pocket close. They are all open pockets. So if you put anything in them and then the bag gets flipped over, everything falls out. Basically the pockets are unusable for anything other than a pen with a clip on it. - The large inside back pocket really needs a Velcro closure strap. Let's say you put your tablet, kindle, notebook, or a small laptop in the bag and then you set the bag on the table while you go to get some other stuff. If the bag tips over forward, then your stuff slides out on to the floor. I know, keep the bag flap closed and this won't happen. - I would also consider making the bag 1" taller. I can't really explain why, but the bag needs to be a bit taller. That's it. Thanks for making a great product.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Amazing product? Yup - this one's in the bag!

I decided to take a chance on this when my previous messenger bag was literally busting at the seams. After going for the Large size, I was concerned it would be too big. No such worries, as this amazing companion can fit my coffee thermos, water bottle, laptop, multiple folders, and all of my personal accessories without ANY problems. It's built like a tank, and the adjustment strap makes it a breeze to keep the bag close to the body for bike trips. I've already spilled on it - whoopsie, but no problem. Wiping it down right away was extra easy and it still looks brand new. The $100 price tag is well worth a piece of quality equipment such as this.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great school bag!

My son has used another high quality bag since he started pre-k. He is now 6'1" and the other brand did not offer larger messenger bags. They also had too many pockets for my son. He would loose things. This bag is more rugged, with a longer, more comfortable strap that is placed well on the bag. Plenty of usable pockets but does not over do it. Classic style and large enough to carry everything he needs. We purchased the large size so he would have enough room for a lunch box and a jacket. Glad I found this quality bag. It is definitely worth spending the money for a bag that will be used for years to come rather than replacing one every year or more often. I wish I had one for myself.

Solid

Great bag and perfect size for me. Good amount of pockets for pens and stuff. Fits my 13" MacBook perfectly. My very only concern is that it doesn't have enough cushion. Wish it had A bit on both sides of the laptop. Other than that. Solid bag and am very happy with purchase. 5 stars

Perfect bag for my wife's job

My wife works at conventions and conferences. She is only allowed to carry a plain black bag within certain size limits and with no large logos. We have always loved Timbuk2 and this bag met all the restrictions. Perfect size for the variety of things she needs.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Everything I need!

Absolutely perfect. I was afraid the medium might be too small but turned out to be just what I need. Top quality, durable, and able to comfortably carry all the things I bring to school. Excellent.

Very disappointed

I believed this bag would be a good option for my husband to carry his laptop. Unfortunately there is not a padded compartment for a laptop. Contacted the company to select a more appropriate bag and was told I'd have to pay for shipping. Company does not offer free returns, not even for exchanges. Most reputable online companies offer this service, I assumed Timbuk2 would do the same. Requested to have a manager contact me to resolve the issue and I haven't heard from anyone. Don't waste your money, especially if you're buying a gift which may need to be returned.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

The perfect little waterproof bag I've been wanting

It rains pretty regularly in the Northeast (for a Californian) and I am primarily a pedestrian and occasional cyclist, who prefers a rain jacket over an umbrella. I have a cover for my backpack but didn't have a good around town solution for rainy days when I don't need the full load. This bag is wonderful, lots of little well thought out features like the grab handles on top and bottom, the velcro all the way across so your bag stays shut even if you over fill it. Just the right number of slots and pockets for daily life. And it works like a charm keeping everything dry in the rain. Love it!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

The Bag

This bag is excellent for consolidating the number of "Dad's got to bring" items for various day trips, running errands, going to kids' ball games, etc. I finally have a way to carry some extras, such as a water bottle, a snack, an e-reader (with charger), notebook, etc, or stash a sweater, without having to wear a knapsack or carry a briefcase. My only quibble is that I seem to have an "out of norm" desire for a color that's neither "too business" nor "too flashy." That's why I waited, and waited, and waited for 'Army Green' to be available at my price point. If Timbuk2 had this available in khaki colored fabric, I'd have bought it sooner.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
