Timbuk2 Has The Mission’s Ass Covered, Shells Out Free Rain Gear

As a city cyclist, I count my blessings every time I go to mount up and my saddle hasn’t been stolen. Imagine my surprise today when I walked outside Atlas Cafe to unlock and found my seat had been upgraded with a snappy red rain cover! Of course, the altruistic act came with a pitch – Timbuk2‘s ninjas stealthily distributed the seat covers in support of a sale – but who can complain when a random act of kindness wards off a soggy bum? With this week’s dismal forecast we can all use an extra bit of shelter.

    What a wasteful and annoying way to advertise a bunch of shitty, nylon bags.

    • JR Says:

      Maybe they will consider putting a design on the reverse to encourage future in-side-out re-use.

    • SUPERFUTURE Says:

      YOUR FACE IS A SHITTY NYLON BAG.

    • Scott Says:

      So its not a mission workshop bag, way better than the crappy jansport I used back in high school.

    • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable Says:

      Hey, look, give ’em a break. Someone has to use the shitty bags, otherwise those of us with CourierWare bags wouldn’t look so elite.

    • Johnnie Says:

      WTF? It’s a bag. It carries your shit. Maybe it’s not what the cool hipster douchies are wearing nowadays, but I’ve never been able to destroy one. They usually last 4-5 years before I do something stupid and give it to some cute girl.

      And, hey, it’s totally wasteful and annoying because I know *real* cyclists love having damp taints.

    • Nico Says:
