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.

Quick shipping, but no gift card

My buddy loved the gift, but I included a gift message when I purchased it and had it sent to him that was not included, he was able to guess it came from me but would've been nice to have the gift card in there.

Something different for the workforce

Let me start with the difficulty one has in finding a highly functional and quality computer bag at this price. I was close to buying a tumi and looking like the rest of the world when I found this bag. Great look. Plenty of pockets. I use it daily to drag my 15" laptop to and fro with an iPad, cables, note pads, light files and more. I love the unique look. I should add that I was showing this off in the office and the next day my associate immediate bought the same model. So much for being unique.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

BlueJeans stained bag within a month

This bag is amazing and happy I have it. Only complaint is I've owned it a month and the interior side of the bag, that rubs with the jeans I wear to work, is now blue. The bags rubs against my jeans when worn and I noticed the discoloration within a week. Not ideal at all given the price of the bag. Obviously this side is not seen by the public but the fact that is stains that easily is not good at all.

Great Business Formal Look

Overall great bag! Zipper and strap seem solid. Love the formal look. Even if I pack a lot into the bag the strap doesn't hurt my shoulder. Nice internal organization. Small con would be no shallow pocket for easy access business cards. Key lanyard in the outer pocket is a nice touch. Keep in mind this bag is not designed for massive storage. You can fit a Nalgene bottle inside, but the bag will slightly stretch. Things get tight when you try to fit a leather portfolio inside with a laptop/tablet in the side pocket. You can then just store the basics (water bottle, umbrella, etc.).

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Not crazy about this bag at all...

Not crazy about this bag at all. The zippers are tough and don't move freely. I think a bit of WD-40 would help. The colors of the actual bag versus what I thought I was getting was not proper. For the last 10 years, I have bought nothing but Timbuk2 bags. This is by far my least favorite...

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Perfect Bag- Classic

I have been waiting to get a Timbuk2 bag for some time now and I am so happy that I finally took the plunge. Using their laptop fit guide I was able to find a bag that actually fit my laptop that is usually to large for most bags. I love the style, utility, and durability of the bag. Even though it does get cramped with the things I put in it, and I could use a little more space- I should just buy a backpack if that's what I was actually looking for. This is great for day to day commuting, a book or two, laptop, iPad, and plenty of room for writing utensils. I'm a graduate student who commutes about an hour to get to class and this bag works wonderfully.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great travel briefcase!

I got this because I travel a lot and carry two laptops. So I needed a bigger brief case with good structure and with a slot for the handles of my rolling bag. I've had it out on a few trips already and love it so far. My two laptops take up some space but that is the point. I lie how the zippered compartment has all of the pockets accessible very near the top. Although I would like a little more zipper on the front pocket for ease of getting all the way down to the bottom, everything I need to get to is easily accessible with out the extra zipper. Very well thought out. The pass through strap for the handles of my wheeled luggage works well, but is not as wide as some of the other bags I was looking at (Tumi, Briggs and Reilly, etc). It would be nice if it was a bit wider but it is not a deal breaker. On that last point, I chose this bag over some much more expensive other options because I really liked the look of waxed canvas and leather as it is both refined and unique in the office and the layout of the bag is very user friendly for my uses on the road. Also fully packed it really isn't as heavy as I expected, which is a bonus.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Terrific bag!

Larger than it looks-takes what looked like an overstuffed bag and makes it look stylish. Great features, looks good, and still waterproof (more than my previous bags have ever been).

Love how comfortable it feels!

Overall great design, good looks, and a nice feel to it. The zippers are solid (these are YKK), so you get a good, satisfying feeling from them. I'm never buying another bag without YKK zippers ever again. This is a bag best suited for carrying in your hand. I tried carrying it on my shoulder and to be honest it wears you down pretty quickly. I tried carrying it backpack style with the shoulder strap but it just doesnt work. Wish they had a hidden backpack strap somewhere. This is a great bag for conferences and business meetings. Very professional, but without oozing the sleazy leather look. 8/10 would recommend.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
