Since 1989, Timbuk2 has been carrying the load for many cyclists and pedestrians alike. With better infrastructure & more people riding to work, cycling culture has become more stylish than ever and Timbuk2 has been on it. What
once was still is a company known for making a rugged line of products designed for the daily ride and grind, their product lines now include more bags fitting for business attire so you look the part when walking into the office.
Check out the Bici Messenger Bag from their new Impossible Collection loaded with as much function as style…
Constructed with leather trims and Cordura fabrics, the Bici Messenger Bag ($269), should handle the same abuse their popular messenger bags do, but in more dapper style. New is the magnetic front buckles that are easier to unbuckle and more importantly buckle with only one hand. The Bici has an ambidextrous strap making it switchable from right to left handed carry and has a quick release strap buckle for easier on/off.
There are a couple of side-access pockets just covered by the flap that can be reached without having to unbuckle it. One really helpful feature is that little leather magnet snap at the top. When undone, the top half of the bag splits open making it much easier to see and dig into the depths of the bag’s “unknown”. With internal sleeves and a padded laptop holder, the Bici Messenenger should keep everything in the right place.
The real standout feature of the Bici Messenger is the netted trampoline backing. By creating space between you and the bag, the increased air-flow should reduce the chances of rolling into work with a sweaty back.
The Bici Messenger Bag and others from the Impossible Collection come in three sophisticated flavors including Tan – Cordura Herringbone (top pics), Indigo – Smooth Cordura Nylon (L), and Charcoal – Smooth Cordura Nylon (R).
