The Especial Messenger shares many of the same features and design cues with the some of the first bags Timbuk2 made in a San Francisco basement in the 80's. The new bags are packed with features we could never have expected twenty years ago. The Especial Messenger is the ultimate cycling bag. Featuring a seam-taped waterproof liner, integrated reflective panels, napoleon pocket, magnetic buckles for one hand access, ambidextrous design, and a ventilated back panel it is easy to see why this is the choice of serious cyclists and commuters all over. It can handle a serious beating, and the best part? It carries Timbuk2''s next level lifetime warranty.
Jared from Timbuk2 goes deeper here.
The Especial represents the finest Timbuk2 has to offer for daily cyclists. Regardless of the conditions you can pack it full and everything will arrive safe and dry. With the fantastic warranty this is the last bag you will ever need to buy. We love the large Especial. The little big longer, and taller designs seems to double the amount of space you get with the medium. Regardless of there size you really cannot go wrong with the Especial from Timbuk2.
