Timbuk2 or bust—this San Franciscan bag brand is en route to take over the travelers' scene—whether trekking from one café to the next, hands-free for all the coffees, or vagabonding from one state to the next, bearing all your life necessities. Timbuk2's been building top-shelf messengers, backpacks, laptop bags, travel gear/luggage, totes and accessories since 1989. Made with the kind of legendary durability that can confidently put its money where its mouth is; Timbuk2 backs every single product with a lifetime warranty. Having pioneered the messenger bag and providing services such as custom manufacturing, it thrives on purveying progressive trends before they’re even trendy. The CEO found her way from the big Bay City to our humble home here in Sarasota this past May. Total girlboss Patti Cazzato switched time zones for the day to make an appearance at SRQ’s Women In Business Initiative: Hear Me Roar luncheon at The Francis as honored guest and recipient of the 2018 Trailblazer Award. Bringing nearly three decades of global retail expansion, creative merchandising, product innovation and sustainable manufacturing expertise to Timbuk2, it was a no-brainer to dub Cazzato the queen of eco-conscious quality. 

And now, she is ready to unleash the recent debut of the Fall 2018 Parachute Collection—now at our cyber fingertips. The brand sets the bar high, supplying “intuitive, stylish and personalized bags to outsmart the city.” Thanks to its groundbreaking Tyvek Fabric that’s both super strong and lightweight (weighing in at only 0.61kg), the collection caters to any activity no matter how simple or rugged. “From hopping on a crowded subway to hiking through the Redwoods, this new collection is light enough that it won’t weigh you down,” says Cazzato. “From a backpack option for more extensive outings, to a hands-free sling perfect for a day of checking tasks off your list, we’ve provided a thoughtful option for each type of trip ahead.”

Snag yourself and your partner in crime a couple of Launch Packs for weekend getaways, all-day outdoor adventures or daily errands around the city. Test your decision-making skills with options of cool colors ranging from Blue Wish, Driftwood, Golden, Graphite and Olivine. The unstructured construction makes for easy carrying—featuring a water bottle pocket, side compartment access to laptop and files, maximum storage space, adjustable shoulder straps with daisy chains for accessories and silver reflective zipper pulls for nighttime excursions. The Launch Pack is even built with a trifecta of security thanks to a waterproof top flap, enclosed with a water resistant drawstring closure and wetsuit-style zippers. Throw one on to properly combat impromptu Florida thunderstorms while sauntering downtown. Keep the elements out weaving through cascading waterfalls while exploring the springs. The Launch Pack has got your back for every scene—with style, versatility and functionality to keep you moving.
