Cavernous storage, waterproof protection.

Built to withstand everything your daily commute can throw its way, the Timbuk2 Especial Tres Backpack has a waterproof roll-top design. This backpack features a whopping 40 liters of storage capacity, making it ideal for bike commuters and messengers alike. An expandable front panel easily accommodates a bike helmet and other on-the-go essentials, yet it remains low-profile when not in use. External compression straps cinch tightly—making large loads less bulky.

The internal, 15-inch laptop pocket securely cradles your computer while you negotiate cross-town traffic, and two exterior water bottle holders double as U-lock pockets. A flexible back panel and padded straps use mesh vents to prevent built-up sweat while riding hard. Reflective logos and high visibility panels increase safety when commuting home after dark.

Best Bag Ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got this bag because I usually bike with a small backpack for computer/work items and a duffel bag for gym stuff. I wanted a backpack that could hold everything, waterproof, and have separate areas to organize your gear. This bag was perfect. Built to last.

Bomb proof construction. Bag is huge.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The bag is very big. You could get a weeks worth of stuff in there. It is very tough. Pretty sure I could get hit by a bus and the bag could get dragged and run over and would still look new. That said the bag is not very comfortable for me. It rugs against my neck/shoulders and sits pretty high. The venting is ok not great. You will have a wet back if riding hard. Hard to rate. Construction is 5 stars actually using it 2-3.
