Summer Necessity: Timbuk2 Dolores Chiller

By Lacy Morris

comments Comments (0)


For all you biking fools out there like me, bike-appropriate gear is hard to find—much less gear that serves its purpose while also serving your style. August means summer, and it's a hot one. That doesn't mean your beverages have to be. If you can dream it, Timbuk2 can do it—they're keeping frosty treats chilly with the Dolores Chiller messenger bag, named after the wildly popular summer outing destination, San Fran's Dolores Park. The messenger part of the bag is a great way to arrive inconspicuously—sans forty in a brown paper bag. I've taken it rafting, biking, to the park, and to an impromptu shindig on a friend's refrigerator-less rooftop. Depending on the amount of ice you pack in, Dolores can hold 18 to 24 cans or (an estimated) 40 Nestlé Orange Tangerine Juicy Juices, depending on what stage you are in life. The waterproof lining keeps it all inside, trust me, I've tested it. Instead of the traditional fold-over flap, the Dolores has a zip-top closure to seal up nice and tight, necessary for your precious valuables inside. It's half messenger, half cooler, and pure style with its red, white, and blue color scheme. The bag sells online for $110, beer not included. So go confidently my friends, live the life you have imagined.
