No offense but could Timbuk brand be the "Monster" of bags? Do they use some space age nylon material? Gold zippers? Theft proof clasps? A lifetime warranty I hope. They're real pricy but get decent play on SD so just wondering.
I have a timbuk2 messenger bag that I have had for a decade, maybe a bit more. still going strong. for whatever that is worth.
I find it looks better & has more versatility than these current models though, based upon quick look at pictures on that link. Even though mine looks less cheap (IMO), I remember it costing less than this list price, it may have even cost less than this "sale" price .. yikes! Guess I got in before it "became all the rage." So I guess even though I'll vouch for timbuk2 bags, I can't get excited about this deal.
