Timbuk2 Mission Cycling Wallet

Timbuk2 Mission Cycling WalletDesigned in cooperation with San Francisco’s Mission Cycling Club, the Mission Cycling Wallet protects your smartphone from the elements without losing the ability to use the touch screen. The weatherproof zipper is highly water resistant, and the 840D nylon construction elsewhere creates a durable, lightweight product. On the back of the wallet there are three pockets that can hold your license, a credit cards, cash, etc.

At less than 3″ x 5″, not all mobile devices will fit. My iPhone 4 fits just fine, but it’s a relatively trim fit. Call me clairvoyant, but as larger smartphones become increasingly popular, I envision Timbuk2 releasing a larger version in the coming months.

The Mission Cycling Wallet retails for $29. Check out www.timbuk2.com

    I’ve had this wallet for over 2 yrs now. Use it for every ride and also for rainy-day walks. This well-made wallet is still in great shape. You can use touch screen, make and take calls without having to remove the phone from the wallet. My iPhone 4S fits – as you say, a tight fit though. I hope your prediction for a larger version is right!

    Awesome case! Might run down to Hayes and get one. The only thing I missed in the article was it’s durability when tested against a fall. I’m always taking my phone out on rides, you think it could handle a couple drops while riding?

    I doubt it. But it’s not designed to, either.
