Giveaway: Win a Custom Backpack from Timbuk2


Summer is here; yay! You might be traveling or even already preparing for back to school season, so we’ve teamed up with Timbuk2 to offer USA Love List readers the chance to win one of the brand’s custom bags.

The company founder, a bike messenger, has been making the bags for over 25 years.  The customizable bags are still handmade in San Francisco where ready-to-buy bags are also designed (alas, only the custom bags are made in the USA).  Timbuk2 bags are designed to mix and match their performance fabrics, reflective fabrics, patterned specialty fabrics and their signature colorful, durable nylon fabrics.

Timbuk2 has sewn made-to-order bags in San Francisco since 1989.


  • Stylish, colorful and unique. Design your own pack with Front pocket for keys, wallet, sunglasses or other small items
    • I’m a huge fan of the specialty patterns you can use to design your own custom bag.
  • Internal organizer for pens, phones, and other small stuff

  • Large main compartment fits books, lunch, and a light jacket

  • It’s easy to access your stuff without having to pull apart your entire bag.
    • The rear zip offers entry to main pocket without opening the flap.
    • You can access your laptop easily.
  • The bag is perfect for everyday use or travel because it’s weatherproof


The winner of the Timbuk2 giveaway will choose a Custom Prospect Laptop Backpack, made in San Francisco. There are a variety of entry options including opportunities for multiple daily entries. Good luck!

Pin the images, tweet the brand, and share the giveaway with your friends all for more chances to win!

  8. Darlene Owen says:

    I like to buy American made items as it keeps the Americans working and hopefully get people off welfare.

  9. Rachelle says:

    I would love to win, because this would be the perfect bag to take to the library on my bicycle! Easy to tote, lightweight, and great dimension for carrying books.

  10. Rachelle says:

    Timbuk2’s bags are very sleek and can be used for so many activities! Library, school, vacation, travel, farmer’s market, and zoo visits to carry snacks.

  11. Rachelle says:

    I try to buy American made products so money stays in our local economies instead of being filtered outside of the country. I love being part of something bigger than myself.

  13. Sally Gearhart says:

    I would love to win this for my oldest daughter. She is in high school and will be going back soon. This backpack would be perfect for her after school activities too.

  14. Sally Gearhart says:

    I made a mistake on the entry to follow on Pinterest, I’m sorry! I put my Instagram name instead of @sallygearhartsg. Sorry again, i think i need another cup of coffee 🙂

  15. This is a great giveaway! I have owned two timbuk2 messenger bags for years, one is at least 15 years old, and they are incredibly well-made and durable

  16. I would like to win one of the laptop bags for a customized bag of my style choice.

  17. I like how Timbuk2 allows you to customize your own bag.

  18. I try to buy American to support American workers and companies.

  19. Both of my boys would love these pack packs for school! They have so much to tote back and forth to school as they get older!

  20. I don’t own any of the bags in this line, but I know my son would love the laptop messenger bag.

  21. We often go to events where I don’t want to carry a purse, and a bag like this would be a perfect way to keep our hands free.

  23. Sharon Rooney says:

    I would like to win because this would be great for traveling.

  24. Sharon Rooney says:

    I do not own a Timbuk2 bag.
    The bag that I like the most is the Custom Alcatraz Laptop Backpack

  25. Neel Mankal says:

    I have owned THREE Timbuk2… and always had great things to say about my bag. Now that my messenger bag’s zip is impossible to open/close (needs lots of force). Nothing else is broken or bad. I checked out the “lifetime warranty”. What do I find — it is a scam! They charge $25 to process warranty when it is their manufacturing defect. What hogwash.

  26. I love that it can be customized to exactly what I need–I’m always searching for the perfect backpack, and never have found the 100% match.
