NEWS – Strap in, time travelers! Timbuk2 is celebrating their 30th anniversary with a brand new messenger bag that shows us what the future holds for style and design. Behold the CMB2049!
This bag is a sleek urban commuter that combines elements of the traditional Timbuk2 messenger designs with some new twists. There’s a ceramic printed front panel for extra protection, water resistant zips, and expandable panels for extra room. Magnetic Fidlock buckles secure your goods, and there are multiple external pockets for quick-grab items. The design features an ambidextrous shoulder strap and padded, ventilated back panel for comfort and hidden reflective hits for night riding. There’s a laptop sleeve sized for 13″ devices, and the whole package comes in at a trim 8 liter carrying capacity.
I like the new look… it’s futuristic without being overly tech heavy, and it seems to be sized just right to handle all the work essentials. I also like the new organization elements. Some older T2 bags had too many pockets for my preferences, but this one look like it has a nice balance for both smaller bits and external access for quick-grab items.
The CMB2049 30th Anniversary Messenger Bag retails for $189. Get ye to the Timbuk2 web site for more information!
