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.

Top-notch bulk bag, but needs water-resistant closure

Have the bag in medium and the midnight blue, which is a great dark near-black-but-not-black color. tl;dr the bag carries bulk stuff or groceries well, but can't be in the rain or snow. Fair-weather bag. The bag itself is well made and comfortable to wear. It carries bulk items (within a certain size) well, and is a superb grocery bag. In fact, I use this for grocery runs, Target runs, and shopping trips. It us a fine shopping bag or duffle on your back. However, there is almost no organization in the bag besides these two pockets: a front pocket (pictured on site, which I'll write about in a bit) which can hold a phone and some keys and a collection of five or so sewn-on pockets in the inside-back. These pockets have a slot for a phone or 3DS/Vita, a few pens, and another small phone slot. There is no support on these pockets, so if you put heavy things in them they will make the bag sag when not wearing it, and if you put fragile things in these pockets, know that they have no padding between them and your back. So that front pocket I wrote about earlier: the zipper on my front pocket doesn't seal all the way. This front pocket is supposed to be the waterproof part of the bag but there is a tiny hole between the zipper pull and the seal on the zipper teeth that's left, even when pulling the zipper pull all the way over. This opening would very likely allow water in the pocket. While cool, the top of the bag doesn't seal at all. This means that any amount of water, rain, or snow on the top of the bag will slide down the bag's opening and into the bag. Do not use this bag in the rain. So the bag is an excellent grocery and shopping bag and looks great, but isn't fit for all weather conditions or even the lightest of rain. That's kinda annoying for something that's so well-designed otherwise.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Just a cool bag

Perfect bag for commuting and travel. I primarily have used it as my carry on diring flights and biking to work. Looks good and fits a ton. Thick canvas is super durable and will hold out to moisture...for a time. Not alot of organization, which some folks might not like.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Such a fantastic bag!

I bought this bag to replace my torn duffel bag that never seemed to hold enough clothes and was a bit ugly. I bought the medium sized bag and just love it. The top clasp is unique, I much prefer it to a zipper. This bag holds lots of clothes, looks great, is comfortable to wear, and is a bit unique! My girlfriend didn't think she would like it from the pictures but thinks it looks great in person!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Just a few cons but overall I love it

I use the product for school, I dislike having to switch out my books everyday depending which book I need. Even this small size carries all I need. 2 textbooks, 3 notebooks, a small laptop, tablet, 2 small moleskins, a thug binder, and writing utensils. It is honestly the size of a normal back pack. I can't imagine the size of the large. I also can fit a thick sweater along with all my books binder and computer. Also the bag is comfortable when both straps are being worn. I mainly use my bike to commute and this bag is very comfortable when I ride. The only thing i wish this had was a few more pockets for organization but that's only because I use it as a regular book bag rather than a traveling dufflebag. Overall I'm super in love with this bag, and can't wait really break it in.
