As Marketing Director for Terry, my life is about the art of mobility. I bought a Timbuk2 Swig out of desperation prior to a trade show after retiring an overloaded messenger bag that was making me think weekly massages were a job necessity. This bag rocks, even when filled with them. It’s low profile, ergonomically shaped for carrying laptop and ipad, plus it’s compartmentalized so that you can carry plenty of things in an organized fashion (rather than losing them in the open-pit cavern). It’s a backpack that easily let’s you swing around and access from one shoulder.
What I also love is how it is perfectly shaped to go under an airline seat and double as a footrest. We are currently stocking a stylish version in gunmetal gray with a splash of wheel print. Super features: bomb-proof Cordura® exterior with outer water bottle pocket, quick grip handle and really comfy padded straps; padded laptop compartment with outer zip for side access.

The messenger back looks great – but WHAT are you riding? I really like the aluminum (?) cargo basket on the front… is this some sort of urban “rent a bike”…? I really like the idea of a well designed basket to ride up front… and haven’t found anything to please yet, not to mention fitting on my 94 Symmetry….!
Backpacks can just be a PITS! Thanks for the product review!

Why is the helmet in the front basket and not on her head? I really hate seeing ads for bike stuff or bike riding displaying the worst of biking – riding with no helmet.
