Have you ever noticed that we list the location goods are made at when we review them?
We think that piece of information is just as important as the price tag. Some brands hide that info and those are not the brands we work with. We only work with brands that are honest and have clear intentions.
Timbuk2 is one of those brands with clear intentions. Heck, they're so transparent about where their bags are made that they’ve got a peep hole in their Portland flagship store that lets you look into their San Francisco factory (it's a live camera feed). The SF factory makes bags from their Customize line. This line allows you to make a bag that suits your personal style. As a buyer it’s pretty awesome to have that much control over how your goods are made. It’s like voting “YES” for local manufacturing while also voting “YES” for your favorite color combo.
We ordered a SF-Made Custom Prospect Laptop Messenger Bag a while ago and have been using it to deliver magazines around town. We love it so much that we want to share it. If you don't think the coffee stains and the patch we added are a problem, you should help us gift it away.
