SAN FRANCISCO (August 1, 2012) - Timbuk2 (Booth #34171), the San Francisco-based manufacturer and pioneer of the messenger bag, introduces new stealthy camera portage solutions for Spring 2013 at OR Summer Market 2012. First developed in 2010 in response to Timbuk2's customer demand for a camera bag, Timbuk2's new camera collection has evolved into new solutions in messenger and pack formats, inserts and standalone cases that are as stealthy as they are functional.

“We challenged ourselves to create camera portage solutions that people would want to use with or without a camera in it,” says Timbuk2 CEO Mike Wallenfels. “Our new complete range of camera-carrying solutions don't announce to the world, ‘Hey, I've got $2,500 in camera gear in this bag!' in our signature urban style.”

On the outside, Timbuk2's camera collection plays it cool with a stylish classic messenger or pack body, and on the inside, Timbuk2 offers calculated, cautious protection with the ability to customize the camera compartment and areas to store other daily gear. Timbuk2's Spring 2013 camera collection provides protection and function, without compromising style.
