Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Little bit about me. I ride my bike to work most days, and tend to carry a lot of stuff with me. I also tend to not be very gentle with my backpack, so I wanted a bag that could stand up to weather on the way to work, as well as my general abuse.

First off this pack looks great. Its got a very sleek and professional look, even though it's seriously huge on the inside. The clips on the side help with this, as you can somewhat tailor the shape of the pack depending on how much stuff you are carting around. I actually got compliments on my backpack, so I know I am not the only one who thinks this is a good looking pack.

The Fit is great as well. The pack breathes pretty well on the back considering it's not an UL bag by any means, and the shoulder straps + stowable hip straps give you plenty of support whether you are walking around campus or biking to work.

As far as the features go, I give timbuk 2 an A+ for the design. Lots of well thought out pockets on this bag, with fool features like magnetic closures, roll tops etc. I am a total sucker for a roll top as you can fit a ridiculous amount of stuff and not have to worry about stressing a zipper to seal everything in. Comes with padded laptop sleeve as well, which is great for the urban professional or student who more than likely needs to carry their laptop / tablet around with them. Also construction and fabric is burly. This pack almost feels like the urban professional version of a haul bag, but with loads of compartments to keep everything organized, and a way better look. Last but not least is the reflective front bottom of the pack. This thing lights up like a beacon if a light is shone directly at it. This feature is really appreciated as an urban commuter myself, every little bit of protection from traffic is more than welcome.

All in all I would highly highly recommend this bag to anyone who commutes via bike, foot or public transit to school / work etc and wants a singluar pack that can fit all their stuff for the day, and handle anything that the conditions may throw at them.

Picture coming soon when I can get around to taking one.

Great product, very adjustable within a single size range to accommodate growth. Somehow it calms our dog down a bit as well, which is super nice. The orange is high vis which is great when shes running around in the woods and the fit keeps her from pulling as bad.

I wear these every day to work, around town, etc and am blown away with how lightweight and comfortable a pair of boots could be. I have also grownto love the slip on look, although I was a bit hesitant for sure. They run on the larger side of things, so size down a half size if possible. Personally I wear a 14 but am probably more like a 13.5 (which doesnt exist) , and in these I went with the 12's (USA 13). They are the tiniest bit small, but the 13's (USA 14) were slooopy so I made it work.

Great shirt that looks nice for going out on the town. I went with a Large, and im 6'5 and 210 lbs. Fits pretty much perfectly, but maybe could be a teeeeeny bit longer. Fit is definitely more on the slim side as well.

These are pretty sweet boots for certain applications. I would not suggest hiking a long distance in these, as the fit is a little "sloppy". But I think that is by design and makes them feel like warm slippers for around town. My backyard fills with snow and is completely shaded most of the day, so it stays that way. These are great to throw on and play with the dog in the backyard, or take to the dog park to stand around on a cold day. Also throwing these on after a long day ski touring, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, etc is pretty sweet. These are one of those items that you probably don't need, but youre pretty glad to have.

Also definitely size down, probably half a size but if you are like me and are on the "smaller end" of your normal size, a full size is probably a good idea.

This piece is a great baselayer or stand alone piece with jeans on a cooler day. Merino fabric feels warm and soft against the skin, and wicks sweat away for high output activities. The antimicrobial properties are no joke either - this shirt will take many sweaty outings before it gets the funk. I am 6'5, 210 with a fairly even build and the XL fits perfectly.
