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.

Good but issues on bike

I bought this bag for commuting by bike to work. I like the look - stylish enough for office and client meetings but durable and large enough to be an effective commuting bag. My only complaint is the strap on the back (for attachment to roller bags) is significantly thick, and it has rubbed my back raw where it rests on a vertebra, especially when I carry heavy items (laptop + shoes). So I'd say 5-stars for most people, 3-4 stars for cyclist who commute with any weight

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Most Excellent

Used to carry a leather bag, but like TS bags so much better, especially after finding a couple of smaller bags (e.g., lunch bag) at a thrift shop. Like the durability and quality that has gone into their manufacture. And the connection with SF, a favorite city!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Excellent product, exactly what I was looking for.

Exactly what I was looking for, very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Has tonnes of space for all the kit that I would carry, fits my 13" MacBook Pro, charger, and USB-C adapter, and Kindle. Still has loads of space left over for my 21oz Hydroflask, notebooks, external battery etc. I have also used the bag as a camera bag, had plenty of space for my tripod, camera, and a couple of extra lenses. Also,the international shipping on the bag was excellent and arrived far sooner than I had expected it to.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Solid bag for commuting, poor quality fastenings

I previously owed a command bag and wore it into the ground. This time I wanted a slightly lighter bag for my everyday commute on the London Underground. Bag wise, it's great - my main issue is the straps and clips. The plastic clips that hold the main flap closed will often not seat properly - you slide them in, they go in at an angle and won't properly fasten. Takes a few seconds of fiddling to get them out and seat them again. That wouldn't be too bad but I have to do it three out of five times. My next issue if the quick release buckle. It's awful. The previous design was far larger and more sturdy. Once you gripped the bag strap it didn't go anywhere. The 'new' design used on the commute just unclips whilst walking. God forbid I have to run for a train - whenever I have, it just lets the strap go and the bag drops down my shoulder. Luckily I still had the strap from my command and was able to use that instead. Massively disappointed in the new design though. I'd recommend the bag to others, but with heavy caveats. Got to admit that I expected better

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I don't know how to top this bag.

My last Timbuk2 bag was 15 years old and I gave it to a friend who started commuting to work. I replaced it with a Commute bag and could not be happier. More functionality than you can imagine. I love the inside water bottle pockets. As always...built to last. I am amazed that the size small bag holds my computer and iPad, clothes, tools, wash clothes, belt, lunch...and it could hold more.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great versatile, stylish and practical bag

I like this bag. It's the "medium" size, and is very sturdy, holds my 13" MacBook Pro in the TSA-compatible pocket (one of my main reasons for purchasing this product line). The only suggested improvement: make the small pocket on the flap bigger, as it doesn't hold much more than some earbuds, and sunglasses.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great Versatile Bag

Great Bag! It's perfect for commuting on bike to office job or while traveling. The strap is too long for a short person like me and I wish there was a more comfortable way to offset the weight with a waist strap while walking.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I'll always have a Timbuk2 bag

I previously had an older commuter Timbuk2 bag that was a medium size, but moved to this type in the small size. There was a slight size difference, as expected, but almost everything I took with me in my medium bag fit inside of this one. The strap is very comfortable and adjusts to the exact size I need, and the organization inside of the bag is perfect.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
