Timbuk2 has been especially influential in popularizing the messenger bag as an urban fashion accessory. Founded in 1989 by a San Francisco bicycle messenger with an old sewing machine, Timbuk2's goal was to make a messenger bag rugged enough for real bicycle messengers, yet stylish enough to appeal to a broader market of young, hip urbanites as an alternative to the traditional two-strap day pack. Our catchy name, three-panel design, distinctive swirl logo, and the fact that their products are made In San Francisco has added to Timbuk2's cachet. Our unwavering passion for designing and manufacturing functional, rugged, stylish bags has made Timbuk2 popular among the authentic bicycle messenger bag brands. Today, our three-panel, tri-color design is an icon on the streets of San Francisco, and a common sight in many other cities worldwide. The Bifold was a hot ticket in 2 5; pangs of nostalgia made us bring it back. It's slim profile was designed with your behind in mind and we constructed it out of a new tough ballistic nylon. So stuff your cash and go sit on you're a** because this wallet is durable! But throw your change in a fountain and make a wish cuz this baby don't carry coins.
