How much L is this bag? Wondering if it can fit the following:

1) Lenovo T480 laptop
2) 16" LED USB portable monitor
3) Bunch of External HDDs - WD Slim
4) USB pouch with USB drives
5) Mouse, two ethernet cables, one mini 5 port switch
6) Snacks (granola bars), portable battery charger
7) Small items like tylenol, gum, etc.

They have a lifetime guarantee but you need to pay to get your bag repaired. Then it takes 6 weeks for them to fix your bag. That’s assuming that they respond to your emails to begin with.

I have three of their bags and will never buy another one.

Anyone have this backpack that can attest to its durability

I got this one in grey back in 2015 for $47 from MEC. It's a shame that the plastic along the top, front, base and straps isn't more resilient; it started to fray at the seams after a few years of light daily use. So not a lifetime backpack.

That said, I like the look and it's served me well enough. Maybe I'll get this one from Amazon. Thanks OP.

I also bought one of these but the exterior plastic cracked after daily use in a year. How much did you pay to send it in for repair?

I forgot how much I paid for mine when MEC had it on sale but it’s a good backpack.

The two things I don’t like are stuffing books and binders is very tight. Plus you typically lose the side water bottle pocket. Then the pen/pouch organizer is a little flimsy. Would of been nice if it was a sturdier material.

I’ve been using it for over 5 years daily biking to work and it’s held up nice. A bit of the vinyl has broken off and some of the stitching on the shoulder strap underside has come undone but normal wear and tear.

Last year, I used this as my main bag on my bike commute to work. This year, since I'm stuck WFH, it has been my go-to picnic bag and it's held up very nicely while carrying the following for a few hours at a time:

1) 12 beers and other liquids
2) Picnic blanket
3) Bluetooth speaker
4) Koozies in the side mesh (for drinking beers)
5) Snacks
6) Misc. items such as multi-tool and sanitizer

There's also a handy bottle opener on the shoulder strap for, you guessed it, drinking beers. Great bag that has held up so far!

I have a different Timbuk2 bag, and the water repellant layer is coming off all over the place. I contacted them for repair, they said they can only give me a credit to put toward a bag in their Toronto store. Unfortunately their store bags are pretty upmarket and I'd still have to shell out about $200 on top of the credit. Never again.

Thanks for confirming and it is very poor customer service on their end.

I ordered this morning - tried to cancel and they definitely did not make it easy. Wasn’t supposed to deliver till aug 11 but for some reason it ‘shipped’ like 10min after I ordered.

I called them - no answer. Took 4 different contact attempts this morning. Finally got it cancelled but this felt concerning and now other complaints about their service make sense to me.

Saw that the physical store in Toronto was having a sale and wanted to check it out. I went in there and saw 200 dollar bags on sale for 100 bucks with the quality of 30 dollar bags. I'm not sure why people shell out money for these bags, the only one that had remotely good quality was 250+.

I've got a couple things from Timbuk2.
Classic and Command messenger. Well made and well thought out.
CoPilot carry on roller. Simple but really functional. I'd be comfortable checking it in too.

That said, their backpack offerings, especially lately don't look very good. Too flashy and weirdly boxy for me.

Funny thing is that I had contacted the company and asked them what model they would recommend for my uses (bicycle commuting all year) and bought it. The waterproof layer started coming off in year two and the whole thing looks ratty. And it’s just okay at keeping water out.
