This is actually a personal request from me. We really got a lot of mileage from the Timbuk2 Metro bag in our trip to Europe, with my husband using it as a camera bag.
Since then, I’ve discovered that Timbuk2 sold a waxed canvas line of messenger bags last year called “Single Speed,” and that they sold a model very similar to the Metro, called the Minna.

Back in college, I used to own one of those “Indiana Jones” waxed cotton bags from Banana Republic (back when they mostly sold khakiwear), and it continues to be one of my favorite styles of bags.
Unfortunately, it turns out that Timbuk2 only sold its Single Speed line for a very brief period about a year ago, and apparently has no immediate plans to produce any more. I almost got one recently, but I was too late and someone else snagged it before me.
So… if you happen to come across, or know anyone who owns, one of these Minna bags that they are willing to part with, please let me know!
