    Timbuk2 Medium Mess Bag at $32+SH at Steepandcheap...

    edit: deal gone now

    http://www.steepandcheap.com/

    Red and silver, kind of ugly, but $32 + shipping = ~$40 for me. Maybe one of you guys want one.

    Or, better looking colors and larger sizes, for example X-large for $50 with free shipping at backcountry.com

    You sure about that? I've got a large that I've had for a couple of years that isn't showing any wear at all. Just because you prefer a different bag doesn't necessarily make these garbage.

    I would not go as far to say the timbuk2 bags are garbage.
    I've had mine for over two years. Still rolling with it.
    I carried at 40 pound vice in it too. No rips.

    They suck for riding (strap is horrible) but I've used one for my laptops for 6 years. No rips and still waterproof as all hell. Used to wear mine on my motorcycle with my old powerbook in it rain or shine.

    What's a better alternative for riding in that price range?

    Well I guess people like them, but that strap system is not up to par IMO.

    They are well-constructed, but the strap system definitely leaves something to be desired.

    I bought my TB2 12-13 years ago. It's been around the world and beat to hell and back, but it still is in pretty good condition. Not perfect condition, but considering its age it has character. Seems comfy to me no matter how full I pack it or how much it weighs, although i dont have the XL.

    That was a good deal for that tent, plus the footprint. They go for that much or more on eBay, without the footprint.

    had the same problem with my timbuk2, strap system was pretty uncomfortable to the point where I couldn't stand riding with it.
