Thanks for all the enthusiasm
My first post as I've been lurking to research my first TB order and wanted to thank everybody for all the lively discussion and photos. It's made deciding which bags and accessories to order much easier and saved me the headache of returning bags that don't quite fit my needs due to sizing or layout. A great example of this was that I was all set to get a Brain Bag until the night before I placed my order; when browsing through the forum I saw a post of a picture someone had taken of their boyfriend wearing a fairly full Brain Bag along with his physical description (height and weight). That was so helpful to me even though I had nothing to do with the discussion and I don't believe the topic was even regarding choosing which bag. Accordingly, I really wanted to express my gratitude for everyone being so enthusiastic about the company's products as to have extended discussion regarding their practical merits.
In the event you are interested my first TB order was (still waiting for arrival):
Aeronaut, Smart Alec, Field Journal, 4x packing cubes, Absolute Strap, Brain Cell, Vertical Freudian Slip, Snake Charmer, Mini Clear Pouch. I know what you are thinking...yup, Christmas in July. :D
