The bicycle messenger bag, as we know it today, has its roots in New York City in the 1950s. Legend has it that Globe Canvas, owned and operated by the late Frank Demartini, began manufacturing heavy-duty canvas shoulder bags for telephone linemen. These bags were designed for easy access to tools/supplies while linemen were suspended on poles.
The Timbuk2 Bag has taken this concept and perfected it into a selection of durable, sporty Messenger Bags that are nothing short of top-notch.
