Put in an order online with a question about another color. Without speaking with me first, my order was changed and then subsequently cancelled for some unknown reason likely because someone realized that you cannot make changes to an order or charge a higher amount without approval first. I sent a message to customer service to see about my order.... More

Overall they produce amazing and they know it. Let's give them a certain arrogance and casualness that can be a little annoying at times. However, they do stand by their products and will fix or repair any bag. Additionally, you can turn in an old bag for 20%discount when I knew something I didn't realize until my recent shopping experience.... More

If you're thinking of buying a TimBuk2 bag, this is the best place to check out the bags and make a decision. There are so many options and it was very useful to try on the bags and see them in person. The staff was very helpful and showed me additional products that I was interested in. I'd rather shop...

I have been using Timbuk 2 products for a number of years and let me say that they really last! Love the vibe in the store as this my first time in this store. I recommend their backpacks over any other!

The first locale in my series of My Happy Places on Hayes is the home of the fashionable yet unique functional Timbuk2 messenger style bags. The Timbuk2 store offers a variety of styles & custom design bags to meet the needs of the owner's specifications. The Timbuk2 products reflect the unique yet fashionable function that makes San Francisco such a... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighbourhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
