The name Timbuk2 is nearly synonymous with the term "messenger bag," and for good reason. Timbuk2 was founded in 1989 by a San Francisco bike messenger, and found its niche in creating bags for other messengers. Every Timbuk2 bag was created to be rugged and functional while still looking great. 25 years later, the goal of Timbuk2 remains the same, but the audience has grown. Timbuk2 messenger bags are as at home on a college campus or high-rise office building as they are zipping along busy city streets.
