Timbuk2, in addition to making their well known messenger bags, make some women’s specific bags and some quite modern looking luggage. Above is the Candybar, a women’s backpack with ergonomic shoulder straps that won’t act like droopy purse straps and a swing around side access pocket that’ll fit an iPad, netbook or 13″ laptop. Features include:

  • Swing Around side access compartment
  • Lightweight with a compact profile
  • External zip pocket for easy access to your essentials
  • Padded back panel
  • Refined weave 840 ballistic nylon
  • $75 MSRP

Further your bag fetish after the break…

The Daria Tote is an up to date take on the laptop tote. An external zip sleeve holds your small iDevice or netbook/laptop, and it’s available in Black/Black/Black; Gunmetal/Gunmetal/Rev Red; or Potrero/Potrero/Village Violet

  • Dedicated pockets for netbooks, iPads and laptops up to 13” with anti-scratch tricot lining
  • Stylish printed graphic liner
  • Easy access external zip pockets
  • Detachable shoulder strap
  • Lots of internal organization
  • Refined weave 840 ballistic nylon
  • $75 MSRP

We took a really lousy picture of the Wingman Duffel Bag at Interbike (along with all their new messengers and pannier bags, check the post here), but here’s something a little more worth gazing upon. The Wingman is Timbuk2’s take on a travel suitcase and it can be worn as a backpack or messenger, which is good because there are no wheels to help portage its contents. Features include:

  • Carry on board, no need to check it in
  • Ultra lightweight so you can take more with you (only 3 lbs. 3 oz.)
  • Can be worn as a messenger or backpack with tuck-away straps
  • Padded laptop compartment fits most 17” laptops
  • Multiple grab straps for easy storage in overhead bins
  • Refined weave 840 ballistic nylon
  • Wet/dry compartment or shoe compartment
  • Color Options: Black/Black, Gunmetal/Blue, Potrero/Village Violet
  • $150 MSRP

The CoPilot is their carry-on sized roller suitcase and has TSA friendly features (but probably won’t get you out of a pat down if you reject their potentially hazardous and politically corrupt new X-Ray scanners). It’s available in three sizes, two of which will actually pass for carry-on on domestic flights, and features include:

  • Carry on board, no need to check it in (S, M)
  • Ultra lightweight so you can take more with you
  • (S) 20” weighs 6lb, 14oz and (M) 22” weighs 7lbs, 4oz; meaning more stuff to pack
  • Bike-inspired comfort handle system
  • Separate wet/dry compartment or shoe compartment
  • Quiet and customizable skateboard wheels
  • Clamshell construction with dividers for easy packing
  • Refined weave 840 ballistic nylon
  • Handles on all sides for easy access from overhead bins
  • Bold identifiable colors available
  • Retail Price: $210 for 20”; $225 for 22”; $300 for 28”
