Timbuk2: Fashionably Functional Bags
SF Station, April 14, 2006
Both the fashionable and quality-conscious can now get their fixes at the Hayes Valley boutique for Timbuk2's trademark messenger bags in one-of-a-kind incantations, as well as other exclusives not available at other retail outlets or even on the Timbuk2 web site. Though the brand's popularity is widespread today in a variety of demographics, the bags' reputation and loyal following started among hard working bicycle messengers and cycling enthusiasts who needed rugged bags in which to courier their goods. Despite being a ubiquitous fashion accessory for both men and women, many urban bicyclists still swear by the quality symbolized by Timbuk2's distinctive "swirl" logo and classic three-panel design. And a note to the hombres: these messenger bags won't detract from your manly look like many murses (man purses) can.
