This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

The Timbuk2 Catapult Messenger bag is a mini messenger-sling that does double duty—it cradles your tablet-size laptop in plush comfort, while repurposing your U-lock as a bag latch.

  • Bicycle U-lock (sold separately) acts as a latch to hold down bag's front flap; the lock is conveniently at your finger tips when you hop off your bike
  • Catapult Messenger secures closed with rip-and-stick patches along the inside of the flap when your U-lock is busy keeping your bike safe
  • Internal tricot-lined padded sleeve fits up to an 11 in. laptop
  • Timbuk2 Catapult Messenger has room for your peripherals, essentials and light jacket
  • Memory-adjust cam buckle eliminates daily fit adjustments; simply unclick the cam, put the bag over your shoulder and lock the cam back in for a perfect fit every time
  • Fits most standard width U-Lock sizes ranging from large to mini
