SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (August 4, 2015) – Timbuk2, the San Francisco originator of the iconic messenger bag, introduces exciting new designs and updates to favorites in the Work Collection at OR Summer Market (Booth #34171). Comprising Distilled, Impossible, and Transit, these lines were designed with the Timbuk2 customer’s urban lifestyle in mind to help solve their everyday problems in work and commuting with thoughtful details. Now with new styles and updated features, getting to work and “bringing it” at work just got a whole lot easier. 

“The Work Collection allows us to incorporate bike-inspired functionality into a polished look,” says Director of Product and Design, Greg Bass. “We are constantly looking to evolve the technical design details of our bags without giving up the rugged yet refined look that we know the Timbuk2 customer loves. The Work Collection is perfect for someone who needs to safely carry a laptop everyday without suppressing their urban wanderlust.”

Born and bred in San Francisco, Timbuk2 has been creating bags that meet the diverse demands of urban warriors for over 25 years by anticipating needs and making life easier through intuitive innovation. To see the full Spring 2016 line visit:
