Timbuk2 released a limited edition messenger last year sewn with old bike-to-work banners. They’re now delving deeper into the recycled/upcycled world of gear with the new Full-Cycle collection. For fabrics and webbing, they’re using PET fiber that comes from recycled plastic bottles. Straps and buckles are made with salvaged post-industrial and post-consumer materials. The Full-Cycle collection features four items – a messenger, a backpack, a tote bag, and an iPad (or Kindle Fire) sleeve.
The messenger shown above can be picked up for between $79 and $99 depending on size. They’re offering them in XS, S, and M. Along with the standard Timbuk2 pockets, it gets a Napoleon sleeve under the flap and a loop for blinky lights.

The messenger comes in two colors – gunmetal as shown above, and blue.
The Amnesia Backpack is padded with post-industrial foam and is sewn with the same fabric as the messenger. It holds 28L and is packed with an array of pockets including a tricot-lined laptop compartment. Pricing is $99 in blue and gunmetal.
Yoga just isn’t the same without a fashionable, recycled tote bag. The Scrunchie Tote holds 18L of goods, and has a zipper closure on the top with some extra zip pockets on the outside. Pricing is $89 in blue and gunmetal.
The Full-Cycle Envelope Sleeve is offered in two versions, iPad and Kindle Fire. The iPad sleeve is priced at $30, the smaller Kindle Fire sleeve at $25. The Kindle Fire sleeve comes in blue only and the iPad sleeve gets both colors.
