SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (January 7, 2016) -Timbuk2the San Francisco originator of the iconic messenger bag and leader of Made-in-America customization, introduces Heist for Fall 2016. This brand new collection for serious cyclists will show for the first time at OR Winter Market (Booth #28027).

The Heist Collection, designed with dedicated cyclists in mind, was inspired by the austerity of military gear and the utility necessary for the rider that is on a bike daily. These bags incorporate the clever details that Timbuk2 is known for, enabling the everyday rider to outsmart the challenges of the city, but with the added twist of city-ready style. The collection features two material options, the first being a spun polyester canvas available in muted, classic colors and the second being a durable 500D TPU.

Also new in the Heist collection is the “RF”, or Reflective series. This enhanced series provides daily, all weather riders the protection they need and the style they desire; reflective striping subtly incorporated into the design increases the wearer’s visibility, one of the most important safety features for everyday riders, and the 500D TPU Jet Black exterior heightens weather resistance. Highlights of the collection include: 

Timbuk2 Heist Zip Pack – This clean pack features an internal organizer for all your small stuff, a vista loop for your bike lights, and a quilted back panel, enabling a comfortable ride for the everyday bicycle commuter.
Retail Price: $119; RF: $139

Timbuk2 Hatch Pack With room for a 15” laptop and smart internal organization, the Hatch Pack’s single, bifurcated zipper design provides easy access, even mid-ride.
Retail Price: $189

Timbuk2 Heist Roll-Top Pack RF Designed to keep your gear dry and you visible, this backpack is equipped with a roll-top closure, Tarpaulin construction, and reflective striping along with weather-safe access with a discreet side zipper.

Retail Price: $269

“We are constantly innovating and working towards designing better bags for the serious cyclist,” says Timbuk2 CEO Patti Cazzato. “We are excited that Heist delivers on that sweet spot between performance and style.”
