[Amazon.ca] *HOT* TimBuk2 Assorted Backpacks Up to 47% Off

Frequent lurker but first post to please excuse any issues, but I have come across a few hot deals on some assorted TimBuk2 backpacks.

"The Authority" in Black Only is $89.97, down from $167.70. Frequently seen at ~$120 though, but still a great deal.
"The Rogue" in Black Only is $63.81, down from $79.
"Spire" in New Black is $109 + $20 off coupon, down from $133.65.

All bags have great reviews and a lifetime warranty!

But it's a backpack? Is it so expensive because it's "cool"? I'm not cool, so I just wanna make sure. Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling EyesSmiling Face With Open Mouth And Tightly-closed EyesSmiling Face With Open Mouth And Tightly-closed Eyes

So up to you if you wanna pay for that.

Like, I'll buy a Timbuk2 pack, but I won't buy a Veilance pack:

I am all about the clean looking backpacks but this thing is void of any character. It looks so faceless lol

How does this compare to the Osprey that was available on the Last Hunt? I assume this is more for daily use? Looking for a backpack for air travel + occasional travels

MEC is also having a sale (possibly even cheaper?). I had the Spire for years and it's extremely well built and I travel 3 times a month for work. Highly recommended, well worth the price!

I used it for air travel all the time, it gets shoved and beat up a lot but it keeps its shape and easy to clean.

Very happy with my Roots back pack from Costco, bought while on sale. We take it on all our trips and it is a constant companion. Holds really well and costs near $20 or so. Using it for the past 4 years. Cannot justify paying $90+ for a back pack leave alone the obscene $1000+ for a Veilance which looks terrible.

I love Timbuk2 bags. If you live in Toronto, might be worth checking out the store on Queen when they have their clearances. I picked up a few bags for about $20-30 this way.

We also use the roots bag from Costco. When our diaper bag gave up we replaced it with the roots one from Costco which has held up much better and is very spacious as well. Can't go wrong with the $20 backpack.

Original prices on Amazon are inflated, it's a decent deal but I wouldn't call it hot

I'm going to have to agree with this poster. They offer a lifetime warranty, but that is not completely true. They will make you pay for the warranty service fee when you ship it in (at your own expense) and will only refund the service fee if they deem your warranty claim "credible". I had a duffel from them that tore right open while I was on vacation within 6 months of purchase. I've also had a travel bag where the zipper failed within two years. Luckily for the second item I had bought it at MEC and was able to return it with no hassles.

These bags look nice but they are of poor quality and the warranty is a bit scammy.

I've had a few of their bags and they stand up pretty well. I'm not a fan of some of the features (closure on my minimalist briefcase is dumb and a simple snap would be better) but they do seem to last.

What I dislike is that they're heavy and sometimes the could use some internal organization. The backpack I have is obviously commuter/student oriented and there's no pen loops as an example.

The same backpack has lasted two years with my son who is not gentle with things and tends to overload the bag. You'll probably get your money's worth with Timbuk2.
