Love this backpack. I have back issues and this lets me carry my computer and other things very comfortably. It's sturdy and the colors (red and purple) are great-looking.

  • No Sternum straps provided

    Get your own sternum straps I was told even though the photo shows the pack with sternum straps. Backpack a bit too large for a tablet or notebook.
  • Super awesome laptop backpack, but terrible for riding
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Erik from Portland, OR on Thursday, June 9, 2016
    I love this bag as a cool backpack to carry my laptop around. Tons of compartments, comfortable and convenient.

    However, there is a solid piece of plastic in the back of the pack, which makes it rigid. When I ride with it, the bag doesn't conform to my back. It actually rubbed a spot on my back raw (at one of the middle vertebrae) the other day. I'm a roadie, so maybe this would work better for a more upright positioned rider.

    I like Timbuk2 bags and I really wanted to like this one. I associate Timbuk2 with cycling bags, but I've now learned not every bag is designed to be used for cycling.

    Overall: Really cool bag, but really disappointed it is so terrible for riding. Aside from that, it's a 5 star bag.
  • Awesome, except DID NOT ARRIVE AS PICTURED.
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rebecca from Seattle on Tuesday, May 31, 2016
    I love this bag, don't get me wrong, but it arrived without the sternum straps OR ANY padding for the back as pictured. I still use it, but I have yet to hear anything from Sierra Trading Post about these inconsistencies.

    Love this backpack. I have back issues and this lets me carry my computer and other things very comfortably. It's sturdy and the colors (red and purple) are great-looking. The only thing is: the description says it comes with a sternum strap, but it doesn't. (Maybe they changed that in the description since I called to complain!) Happily, I've found that I don't need the strap for my load. Perhaps if I were a student and had to schlep around a few textbooks I would want it.
  • Great College Bag

    Nice size for biking around campus. Love the strap for a blinky light! And the big top flap keeps the weather out.

    • Thanks. I read that. But I found online images of people wearing it where it's gigantic and where is appears in reasonable size. Since there are only S/M options, I assume the bloated version is the medium. but I am not sure which is sold here.

About Timbuk2

Originally created in 1989 by a San Francisco bike messenger named Rob Honeycutt, the Timbuk2 messenger bag is still an iconic example of entrepreneurial spirit and innovation. Easily recognized by the rugged, stylish design, Timbuk2 bags were initially made to order in Honeycutt’s basement before the company opened its first shop three years later. Timbuk2’s signature three-panel, tri-color design and “Build Your Own Bag” order form first debuted in 1994 and remain extremely popular today. After more than two decades, this brand still constantly evaluates its products for performance, durability and environmental impact, ensuring that all Timbuk2 messenger bags, backpacks, laptop bags and accessories are held to the highest possible quality standards.
