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.

Good Backpack

Comments about the Uptown Backpack

I really liked this backpack. It has a lot of pockets and I can fit everything I need to go to work and then some. The one major complaint I have is that it is not waterproof. It was not clear in the description of the backpack that it is not waterproof. During a really bad rain storm by the time I got into the office the whole backpack back was drenched and there were puddles inside the backpack. Luckily I did have my laptop with me that day. The other minor complaint is I got the Jet Black backpack but it looks dark gray. I really do like it but if the description was clearer in regards to the not being waterproof, I might not have gotten this backpack.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Great compact pack - needs 2 improvements

Comments about the Uptown Backpack

Top and side handles should be padded as in other models. They are not comfortable. Eyeglasses pocket should be wider and deeper.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Excelent bag space and organization

Recently I had a short weekend trip and decided to try this bad as my main luggage bag. I was not dissapointed: 4 changes of clothes and plenty of space left in the main bag. all my toiletries were stored comfortably on the organizer pocket and the front pocket was perfect for holding my wallet and passport.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

It fits all of my stuff just perfectly!

I have multiple Timbuk2 messenger bags, and use all of them frequently, but sometimes I need to carry other items in another Timbuk2 bag so I ordered a back pack to do the job and it works really great!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Excellent travel bag

Overall an outstanding bag. Perfect for daily commute to office and recently used as carry-on bag for 5 day business trip. The divisions between pockets and storage areas is excellent. My 17" macbook pro was kept very safe and easily accessible. Very comfortable to wear for long time periods. Only reservation: the zippers on the main compartments are a little sticky. I've only had the bag a week, so they might smooth out with use.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Good bag few features keep it from greatness

This is a really good bag. It is a great compliment to my Wingman Carry-On. I have traveled for2 7-day trips to Cuba and Paris just using these 2 bags. There are just a few things keeping it from greatness. First the bottom of the bag is constructed so that it is front heavy and will not just stand up without being propped and even then if you have the slightest bit of weight it will tilt forward. Secondly the water-bottle holder could be a little tighter so that the heavy bottles don't just slip out. Lastly the straps could be more comfortable.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great backpack that can hold ALL of your things

I took this backpack on a work trip to Shanghai. It is a great backpack that can fit everything you need. So many pockets (yay!) that I have trouble findings things. But I think this will resolve with more use. It is not light though.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Another quality Timbuk2 product

I've been using Timbuk2 Messengers since highschool (about 20 years now), and I started using the backpacks as well a few years ago. My wife needed a traveling backpack, so the choice was obvious for me of what to get. She loves the bag so far, and is impressed with the comfort, light weight, and storage compartment options.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Perfect Travel Backpack

What an incredible product. I don't usually write reviews, no less glowing ones. But this backpack deserves praise. I've had it just three weeks but have already taken it to New York City, Warsaw, Prague and London. With a laptop, sweatshirt, passport, wallet, keys, business cards, sunglasses, extra glasses, pens, and a bunch of other stuff. I intuitively remembered where everything was because the organization in this backpack makes sense. So happy to have it. So functional. I'm now a huge fan.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
