Labor Day, the day that people think is about celebrating America but it’s really just a free day off work, is upon us. In celebration, Timbuk2 is slashing its prices once again. Get 25% off messenger bags, backpacks, laptop bags and more. If you’ve been waiting all summer to grab a new bag for the season that makes…
Your gadgets just beast through their battery life. That can be a real pain if you're on a flight or just generally out and about. But at least in the span of about a day, you don't have to worry about it thanks to Timbuk2's Power Commute messenger bag.
It looks like something between the Nickelodeon Astro Crag and a piece of swiss cheese, but Timbuk2's latest sleeve has a lot of thought behind it. The casing is meant to ventilate your laptop—just watch for rain.
I won't lie: I'm in love with my Timbuk2 bags. That's why I'm excited to point out that the company is in the middle of a huge sale. They're basically discounting one kickass bag by up to 60% each day.

I'm pretty square, fashion-wise. I own few intentionally ironic t-shirts, and fewer skinny jeans. Buchanan bags on my style choices regularly. That's why, when he ordered me to ditch my old backpack, I picked Timbuk2's new HAL.

Timbuk2's Commute is my main bag, with the separate laptop compartment making airport security breezy—version 2.0 goes TSA compliant, so you don't have to pull your laptop out at all. Pricey at $120, like all Timbuk2 bags. [Timbuk2]

Luckily, they've got a huge sale going on through Sept. 22, slashing 35-65 percent off a buncha bags. A couple of picks:…
The Gadget: It may be seven months late to the party, but Timbuk2's Steve Sleeve is the latest MacBook Air sleeve to fashion itself in the likeness of a manila folder.
The Product: Timbuk 2 is famous for their trendy, customizable messenger bags with rock solid construction. You can pick different colors for each of the three panels of your bag to create a personalized product. Now Timbuk2 has added specialty (premium) fabrics to their designs.
The Price: A custom medium sized…
We love most everything about Timbuk2 bags except for the price tag—they're not cheap, to say the least. But REI has Timbuk2's Commute notebook messenger on clearance for $40, knocking 60 bucks off the retail price. The notebook pocket is 13.8 inches wide, if you're wondering about size. [REI]
