Timbuk2 bags have been featured on The Gadgeteer. They make great bags to carry your gear or even your pets, and they’ll even allow you to customize your bag with special fabrics or color combinations. For this new offering, they’ve joined forces with TerraCycle (a New Jersey-based business that makes consumer products from pre- and post-consumer waste) to create this great looking, limited-edition messenger bags. TerraCycle hand-picked the best US Postal Service mail bags used in domestic USPS facilities from 1960 – 1990, and Timbuk2 turned them into small and medium Messenger Bags. The exterior fabric is from “extremely durable but worn and laundered US Postal Service nylon mail bags”, and the bags have a waterproof TPU interior. They have all the other organizational and structural features you expect from a Timbuk2 bag. They are available in natural or in a vegetable-dyed brown. The small bags are $99.00; the medium bags are $109.00 from Timbuk2, while supplies last.
