Eliminate Waste

It starts before your bag is ever born, with 80% certified Bluesign materials, flows through uncompromising craftsmanship and rigorous product testing, occasionally dips into on-demand repairs, and at the end of the line, is given new life through transfer of ownership or recycling. Start the Cycle.


It Starts with Materials

We start with a majority Bluesign certified materials and evaluate their durability by testing their tensile strength, seam slippage, water column, tear abrasion, ball burst, mullens, colorfastness, and other sexy things. If it won’t last or is toxic in any way, we won’t use it.

The Make Matters

We invest in quality craftsmanship and rigorous product testing to ensure the premium materials we use will stand up to everyday use in the products we create from them.

Lifetime Warranty

Built to last forever, all Timbuk2 products have a lifetime warranty. But we also embrace the wild, twisty ways of life. And when life puts a little too much pressure on your pack, we’ll repair it in our San Francisco factory. Learn more about repairs, or setup a repair
