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.

Step 2 - Send us the bag with the Repair number

Please send the bag to the address provided in the repair details email. Be sure to write your repair number on the outside of your package. We recommend using the least expensive shipping method that will provide you with a tracking number and insurance. Timbuk2 is not responsible for parcels lost in transit.

Right Size For When You've Just Got a Few Papers

Comments about the Transit Briefcase

This "Mini Messenger" is good for quick trips around town when you don't need a full-size messenger and just have a few papers. A manila folder is a tight fit but loose letter-size sheets fit easily. Legal-size papers: not so much.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Good looking yet unassuming, highly functional and versatile

Comments about the Transit Briefcase

My husband and I fight over who gets to use this. He loves it for work. He does prefer his Chrome messenger for commuting on his bike, better weight distribution. This one is so versatile, love the hidden zipper on the flap and then zipper on the back on the outside as well as the strap to add on top of a carry on. So many little useful design add-ons, and somehow, now, indispensable. Makes me mad if another bag doesn't have them. Please make one a little more stylish and I'll use it instead of my LV at the mall!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Really disappointed

Comments about the Transit Briefcase

Waited a long time to pull the trigger on buying this. Finally your Xmas sale persuaded me. Got the Fog color, because I have been looking for a really sharp looking light colored bag. HOWEVER, the Fog color is not as light as the website photo, it's a darker muddier grey. Worse, the fabric is rubbery-feeling, gross and confusing. Is it coated? It feels like it's going to pick up color from everything, like a rubber eraser. Super awful. So, I think even though it was on sale, like really on sale, it's going back. Overall, Timbuk2 quality has really cratered as far as I'm concerned. One highlight, and also confusing, is that the strap is generously long--totally unlike your messenger bags, which have really gone short strapped. Another reason why I am looking to other bags.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Fantastic minimal case

Comments about the Transit Briefcase

This is a well made, well designed, bag that you can take to the office. It doesn't hold much,but if you're looking for a small minimal carry for your essentials, this is for you. It's exactly what I was looking for. No complaints.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Really nice briefcase - just a little too small...

Was waiting to buy this until new colors/materials came out and the Jet Black Static - 400D Static Polyester is really nice - well worth the wait. With that said, it's just a little too small. My 13" Macbook Air barely fits in and it is a bit of a pain to get it in and out of the laptop pocket. Just 1" wider woudl have made all the difference. (Note, I can fit my ipad in the same pocket). Also, I'm a relatively light traveler but it barely is able to carry the essentials of a daily traveler (charger, mouse, couple of cables, HDMI adapter, business cards, Bose Quietcomfort - without its case). If I'm ok with not fully securing the flap, I can just stuff a light 1/4 pullover with it all. If it were just 3/4"-1" wider and maybe 1/2" deeper, it would be the perfect case.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Perfect size for me. If you're the type of person that loves to carry so much stuff, get a larger bag.

Slim, but Laptop Sleeve is Too Small

I am a petite woman and looking for a business-friendly slim briefcase for just my laptop and a few papers, on those days I don't need all the space of my backpack. I thought this would be perfect; and it is near perfect. Except the dedicated laptop compartment is super snug. A 13 mac laptop fits, but my work Dell (which is a new model, but not as streamline as the mac) does not fit. It was a huge bummer. I guess this is the downside of a dedicated laptop compartment, as my laptop fits in all other "13 inch" bags (including, interestingly, a Timbuk2 sleeve). Also, note that the "moss" is basically a dark grey not really green, and there is not as much texture as shown in the picture. My hunt continues.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Nice Bag. small, comfortable

nice bag. a little smaller than expected. a 3 ring binder barely fits. very comfortable. latch is a little difficult to use, but the velcro works just as well, so i never use the latch.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
