Trust us, we really want your money, so just hold tight and we'll figure this out together.

  • Did you get a red message that said to check your payment or billing details?
    • Have you moved in the last 8-10 months? If so, our billing address verification system probably wants to use your previous billing address. Give that a try!
    • Or, do you have any abbreviations in your billing info? Check your statement and see exactly how it's listed: 'apt' vs. '#',or 'Street' vs. 'St.' You get the idea. Our verification can be super strict; you gotta get it just right.
  • No, I didn't get a message, the contents of my cart just disappeared!
    • Aha! The old disappearing contents trick. Call Customer Service so we can give it a try. We often have the magic touch!
  • I didn't get an email confirmation.
    • Did you check your junk folder?
    • Still no confirmation? That usually means you incorrectly entered your email address. Whoops! contact us and we will help you track it down.

Also, having an item in your cart does not reserve it, nor does it save the sale price. If we sell out of the item or the sale ends, this change may prevent your order from going through.

If your order was recently placed, we may be able to cancel your order. Please reach out to us ASAP via chat and we will do our best to cancel your order.

We want to say yes but we have to say no. Unfortunately, once your order is placed, we cannot make any changes to it. It might be possible to cancel your order. Please reach out to us ASAP via chat and we will do our best to get your order canceled.

You're most likely just seeing 2 or more authorizations on your account. Please remember that every time you attempt to make an order, your card will be authorized for the total amount of the order. However, an authorization is not a charge!

Any unnecessary authorizations will fall off your statement as soon as your bank verifies that we did not process the charge. It may take 3 - 5 business days for the authorizations to drop off. We know this whole thing can be super confusing so please reach out to our customer service team, and we'll double check! Contact us with the dollar amount and your order details so that we can check to see if there are duplicate orders in your name.

Sadly, we can only accept one form of payment at a time. If you'd like to purchase a Timbuk2 gift card, you can use your gift card with a credit card or one of our other payment methods!

Damages not covered are those resulting from abuse, normal wear and tear, accidental damage, and cosmetic damages that do not affect the functionality of the bag (such as scratches or stained fabrics).

So your Timbuk2 bag is no longer looking its best and you want to make it sparkling new again. We recommend spot cleaning for your bag.

  • Take a damp towel or sponge with a mild detergent and wipe clean.
    • Take a damp towel or sponge with a mild detergent and wipe clean.
      • For greasier, more stubborn dirt - try plain dish soap or a cleaner like simple green.
    • Natural fabrics, such as wool or cotton canvas are best cleaned with a wet rag, synthetic fibers such as nylon or polyester can be scrubbed with a plastic bristled brush.

Can you wash your bag in the washer? We do NOT recommend it.

  • Why not?
    • The fabrics have waterproofing coatings on the inside that can be washed away in the washer. *Some features of the bag might bleed or run.
    • It will void the warranty.

NEVER put your bag in the dryer. Ever. Any damage caused by the machine won't be covered under our warranty.


Here is a list of our most commonly used fabrics:

Cordura Nylon - Generally, the exterior nylon we use is Cordura. Cordura nylon is known for its durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs.

Ripstop Nylon - Ripstop fabrics are woven fabrics, often made of nylon, using a special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. During weaving, (thick) reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern

FARP - FARP is an internal name that we came up with ! it is a polyester backed polyurethane coated fabric, with a bit of a glossiness to it.

Canvas - A heavy, durable plain-weave cotton fabric. We use a synthetic or natural wax that 's infused in the canvas to provide a waterproof coating to help further the weather resistance of the bags.

Twill - A popular weave pattern identified by diagonal lines on the face of the fabric. Denim, chino, gabardine and drill are all types of twill fabric

Polyester - Polyester fabrics are highly stain-resistant, wrinkle resistant, durable, have a high color retention, and can withstand strong and repetitive movements.When woven with synthetic fibers, it creates a material with superior wind and environmental resistance compared to plant-derived or natural fibers.

Poly - OxFord Polyester, Poly, Poly Non-P PVC, and Embossed PU Poly are all derivatives of Polyester and share the same basic properties.

TPU - Thermoplastic polyurethane is used as a liner for our messenger bags and many others. It is abrasion, weather, tear and water resistant. It has been in use as a fabric coating material in the textile industry for over 30 years, and it’s first application was as a replacement for PVC where the "look and feel" of PVC was of value but the performance of PVC was lacking in areas such as flex properties, abrasion resistance, low temperature properties, and cleanability
