That's a great video!. I hadn't realized that the interior used wasabi, although I could see this color for the olive side effect on the product page. I wonder whether Darcy can tell us what the interior is for the other bags -- is it always wasabi, or is it sometimes steel or cayenne? My side effect will come as part of my Tristar order, so I won't see this for a while. I was sorely tempted to order plum, but since I plan to also tether it to some other bags (as you show for your Buzz picture), I thought I'd better pick steel to better span the variety of bag colors.
The Side Effect is sure to be a winner! Thanks for putting the video/photos together.
Thanks for the pictures and video. I decided to not include the Side Effect in my Tri-Star+Aeronaut order because I already have an llbean waist pouch. But the pictures are making me rethink that decision because the size looks perfect.
One question. When I put the llbean pouch in my Buzz I tuck the waist strap under the back flap but the strap ends always fall out. Does the Side Effect hide the waist strap without the ends falling out and, if so, how?
David (trying to resist an order before I've had a chance to see what packing cubes I will need for the Aeronaut and Tri-Star)
i completely understand. the side effect has been so beautifully executed!
let me put together a video demonstrating how to manage the waist strap on the side effect when you're not using it.
here is a video demonstrating how the waist strap folds into the side effect.
let me know if you have any questions.
Maverick, thank you for your time and effort on these...just ordered one for myself!
I went with basic black...will post pictures when I receive.
Current Carry: Skookum Dog Citizen Canine, Founder's Briefcase, Synapse 19 (day hikes), Guide's Pack (longer day hikes), Yeoman Duffel (winter/emergency stuff for the car), Aeronaut 30 (travel), Night Flight Travel Duffel (camera bag), Moveable Feast + Shop Bags (food)
I really want one! I have a lot of purses and am forever forgetting something I need inside another purse when I transfer contents over. I think the side effect would be great for keeping my essentials (TB wallet, change purse, iPod Touch, small camera, pen, cell phone) together and easily transferable from bag to bag. The big decision will be what colour.... ;)
In our household: Black/Steel Aeronaut (with 2 large packing cubes and Absolute shoulder strap), Forest/Steel Aeronaut (1 large and 2 small packing cubes), Olive/Wasabi medium Cafe Bag, Linen/Olive Medium Cafe Bag, Cocoa/Cocoa/Wasabi Imago, Cardinal/Hemp/Steel Imago, Hemp Little Swift, Solar Shop Bag, Plum/Wasabi Side Effect, Black/Steel/Solar Smart Alec, Horizontal and Vertical Freudian Slips, TB Wallet, Hemp Little Swift, FOT pouch, Black/Olive ID
This thing is actually Tom Bihn's biggest Organizer Pouch in disguise as a waist pouch, isn't it? :)
How many o-rings are there in this bag?
Has anyone ever tried wearing this around the waist by positioning the pouch in the small of your back?
If you decide to use the waist strap, are there alternative uses for the shoulder sling strap? If so, what have you used these straps for?
