Timbuk2 is offering 20% off all custom messenger bags, book bags and more this week. They also offer free shipping on orders of $75 or more.
If you’ve never created your own custom bag before it’s pretty easy. Just start off with your basic bag design, then choose from different colors and then you can upload a logo or choose from a wide variety of other options. When you think you’ve got it down, hit the add to cart button and you’ll see the discount applied.
A touch of this, a hit of that, it takes a lot of webbing and weave to make a Timbuk2 product. But each material counts. We evaluate the performance and durability of our materials by testing their tensile strength, seam slippage, water column, tear abrasion, ball burst, mullens, colorfastness, and other sexy things. Only materials that meet pass our rigorous testing earn the right to be integrated into Timbuk2 products.
We also evaluate the environmental impact of our materials. We do not – we will not! – use materials considered toxic by the global community. In addition to regularly assessing the materials we use, we constantly hunt for newer, better materials solutions. Finding the perfect fabric or binding is challenging but oh so necessary.
