Timbuk2, a city in the Tombouctou Region of the West African nation of Mali…no that is Timbuktu; Timbuk2, a San Francisco based messenger bag company started in a garage, in the 1980’s…yes, that is the Timbuk2 I am talking about!
Who made the first messenger bag? New York based company Globe Canvas for telephone linemen. However, New York City bicycle messengers soon realized the benefits of the design, and Globe Canvas “messenger bags” were soon spotted all over town. Timbuk2 wasn’t far behind, and they soon began to capture the hearts of mainstream America. People walking down the street noticed the brightly colored, well-made bags, and wanted them for themselves.
Timbuk2 is a young company that not only provides durable messenger bags but also is concerned with the environment. “Like rice and beans, we keep it simple when it comes to being pro-planet. We make durable bags that are tough as hell and built to last. So while our competition is piling up in landfills, we stay on your back, hugging you for a lifetime. Tales of Timbuk2 bags outlasting jobs, lovers, pets, and train wrecks are not uncommon. These stories give us the confidence to guarantee our bags will last a lifetime.”
Some of Executive Essentials’ best-selling bags include the:
- D-Lux Messenger Bag
- Netbook Messenger Bag
Along with all Timbuk2 bags, these are both made of rugged ballistic nylon, heavy-duty stitching, and waterproof liners. Each bag comes with a padded adjustable shoulder strap, and many organizational features like a key ring tether. While the messenger bags share many desirable features, they also have characteristics that make each unique for the particular needs of their owners. Check them out at Executive Essentials!
