Especial Tres 40L Backpack

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

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.

How's the bag holding up now? Is it comfortable to ride with regularly? How tall are you and how does the bag sit on your back?

Bomb proof construction. Bag is huge.

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.
