Timbuk2 wants to power your commute
If you've ever wondered how Timbuk2's famous bags get made, we scored a tour of the San Francisco factory floor to show you.
Timbuk2 started in 1989 when San Francisco bicycle messenger Rob Honeycutt decided he needed a bag that better suited his needs. He bought a sewing machine and fabric, and the rest was more or less in the bag.
More than 20 years later, Timbuk2's current CEO, Mike Wallenfels, shows off the latest evolution of the company's bag tech, the Power Commute Messenger bag. The bag is Timbuk2's standard Commute Messenger, with one major difference: it comes with a unique rechargeable power pack called the Joey T1, as indicated by the removable orange sticker. It will be available for purchase October 15 from the Timbuk2 Web site.
