I love how they're the "real thing" when companies like Timbuk2 were one of the first to make bike courier bags.
Then, age of the company means nothing to me. Tesla Motors is one of the youngest automakers around but their product line shows more of the future than any of their competition.
Its a messenger-slash-cyclist kind of thing. Timbuk2 lost their street creed, after moving production offshore. Plus the stuff is consumer quality, not pro.
Just catching up on the thread, as I may treat myself to a bag, for when I get out of this full arm splint. Wished I still had my mini metro, but then again the belt buckle can get irritating on such a small bag.
