The shop features 100% of the bags you see on Timbuk2.com (say buh bye to US to Canadian shipping fees and custom charges) PLUS a year round in-store custom bag building workshop for you to design your own bags. Srsly, there’s over 50 fabrics to choose from including Cordura, waxed canvas, incognito reflective, wool and more, and you can customize almost every aspect of the bag from binding to thread color. In the workshop, you’re able to see all the fabrics and materials in real life, mock it up on a giant touch screen, and get help from our local team, if you’re looking for an opinion that is.
After a year of searching for the perfect spot for our Canadian debut, we could not be MORE thrilled to land in this awesome community at 359 Queen Street West (between Spadina & Peter) among some of the cities raddest locally grown neighbors like the legendary venue Rivoli, insane denim at Show Room, Trinity Bellwood Park, the one and only MuchMusic & City TV HQ plus the under the radar caffeine hole-in-the-wall Little Nicky’s, just to name a few…
Canadian’s have been embracing Timbuk2 for decades now, and now it’s our turn to hug back…hard. With so many reasons to love TO: from TIFF, NXNE, Degrassi throwbacks, Bikelanes on Bloor, volleyball courts at The Beaches, Tour de Dufflet, Steam Whistle brews, world class hockey, soccer, baseball in our own backyard, Toronto continues to surprise and delight locals and visitors alike.
