About Timbuk2

Timbuk2 is a San Francisco original. We were founded in a San Francisco garage in 1989 by a bike messenger named Rob Honeycutt and have continuously manufactured in the city’s Mission District ever since.

Rob made products that served his needs as a messenger, but it was never that simple. He had huge drive, a knack for brand, and an obsession with just-in-time manufacturing. Timbuk2 brought customization to the masses, selling custom messengers to bike shops in the 90’s and launching the first online customizer in 1999. Our product offering has grown to include luggage and laptop bags, but the made in San Francisco custom messenger remains our iconic style and the heart and soul of our company.

Timbuk2 Life Cycle

We created the Timbuk2 Life Cycle to enable your Timbuk2 product to live a full life, now & forever.

The Timbuk2 Life Cycle is the most responsible thing we can do environmentally — extend the life of our existing products — and we are both passionate and proud of the reduce, reuse, repair, recycle, and reimagine aspects of the program. Life Cycle has lead to the development of new meaningful partnerships with Yerdle, iFix It, and Terra Cycle, and a new full-time hire of a repairs sewer in our San Francisco factory. It's the program we're most proud of and we hope you find it both useful and inspiring.

Welcome to the Timbuk2 Life Cycle. Drop in, now and forever.
