The TSA-friendly backback and computer bag have saved me tons of time going through security and the suitcase glides like a dream on skateboard wheels.
Messenger bags and more from a classic SF company. – Invented in an SF garage in 1989, Timbuk2's classic messenger bags--the nearly indestructible, customizable, carry-all shoulder bags that have become icons of San Francisco style--share their retail outlet in Hayes Valley with everything from roll-top backpacks to rolling suitcases. The super-friendly staff help customers sort through hundreds of size, color, pattern and fabric options for the bag's parts and panels, which are made in the company's Mission factory and usually delivered within 24 hours. Not all of Timbuk2's baggage is customizable, but all of it is made from the same basically bulletproof ballistic nylon, and each model is smart-designed: laptop bags that don't need to be opened for airport security, backpacks that can be fully accessed with one strap still on and unbreakable skateboard wheels on the huge rolling suitcases. Besides some fabrics and colors and bags created by local artists, all of Timbuk2's products can be ordered from its website, but the retail store allows you to do one crucial thing before you buy your tough-as-nails, ultra-functional bag: see how it looks on you.
Editorial Review – SF's original messenger bag company is still going strong and has branched out with other styles, all available at its Hayes Valley retail store.
