@marrytattoo, am I right those OPs you have there in new Summer colors are Clear Organizer Pouch?

I agree, @moriond: the Island Dyneema does remind me of teal [though I don't have any French Blue to compare it to]. But what I want to know. @marytattoo, is who you had to bribe to get those OPs in Zest and Island Dyneema. So beautiful!

~Nancy
I just called and asked! Someone mentioned on the forum last week they'd seen OPs in the store so I immediately called. At that time they weren't sure any were left (they were so busy filling orders to know what had already been spoken for), so I just ordered, noting I only wanted new colors. I may be getting a few more - did the same thing on another order.

Admittedly, I usually do not take my own bag when I go grocery shopping. I often will recycle the paper or plastic bags that I get from the store though.

I decided to use my new Island SSB as I only had a few items to get this morning. Here's what fit into it, although maybe a better packer could get more in there.

I usually do take my own bags and I have to say the SSB holds depressingly little. And I tried putting wine bottles in the side pockets but they are too tall and fell out. Also, tried stuffing one in my SCB so I'd always have a shop bag on hand and it takes up way too much space. Sticking with my Chico bags from now on.

Have you turned your SSB inside out? It holds a lot more that way.

I don't use them in the grocery store. I need the disposable bags for my mom's diapers.

To increase capacity:

1. Turn the bags inside out. Having the pockets on the outside is great for cylindrical items, or for keeping refrigerated separated from non-refrigerated. If you're going to use the pockets in exterior mode, you must pack the middle correctly. So...

2. Pack the shop bag yourself. Take the items from the cart and put them on the belt in the manner you would pack them up. I usually put jar-type items on the belt first, so that I can put them in the pockets first (again, with the bag inside out), which gives shape to filling the middle. I will put the tall boxes in next and then fill around it. If you're doing a large shop, have a few bags to further organize and protect things like fruit and veggies. If the checker scans things out of order, put the items aside and take the time to jenga-pack the bag optimally. Depending on contents, close the top with a key strap. The only place I would let a bagger near a TB bag is a grocer who packs in paper, not plastic. For example, Trader Joe's. Those guys know how to pack a bag properly. I've learned a lot from them.

After a few outings, you will be an expert. You will get looks of disbelief about how much you fit into a single shop bag. I have an excellent sense of what can go in a small and a large. I aim to shock and awe the cashier, the bagger I've displaced, and everyone behind me in the checkout. I think I've generally improved my spatial reasoning through shop bag shopping. You can do it!

So ... while I do want to contribute more photos when I post, I must admit that I have the most craptastic photo skills that I don't really care to improve upon. :)

Clearly, Burnt Orange is my jam. Synapse 19, Aeronaut 30 w/luggage tag attached, Synapse 25 (my precious!), Snake Charmer, COW, #3 Zest TSS, mini Q-Kit, Zest TT, 3DCOC, small Q-Kit, #1 Zest TSS, small and medium DOP.

I don't have kids so I look at this picture like a proud parent showing off their kid's photo! Although my siggy says Long live 152!, I only wrote that for solidarity's sake because that particular shade of orange sparks no joy and I don't think it'll ever be a part of a family photo. I would love to add a burnt orange Co-Pilot and all these Smart Alec threads have made me take a serious look at that bag as well.

Here in California we have to take bags *everywhere* not just to the grocery store. I stayed away from the shop bags for the reason you state...they don't fold down into a small enough packet. But then I purchased a LSB (I too find the small ones a little too small for what I use them for). Oh geeze, now I get it. They are insanely great for groceries, drug store, farmers market, etc. Versatile, they stand on their own and those pockets! I keep several in the car and have thrown out/given away all my old woven plastic ones.

But, I leave them at home when I'm carrying my SCB or SE and want a very foldable bag to take along as a "just in case I need it" bag. The ones I like are envirosax, but there are a lot of brands. The envirosax are great as an emergency bag when traveling too. But they are not good grocery bags!

Nah, not my red-headed stepchild. I love the idea of 152, but bright colors -- like Orange 152 and Solar -- as well as neons set my teeth on edge and make me feel nauseous. I'm not hating on 152, I just know that others will appreciate the color far more than I ever will be able to. Plus, I don't want any orange TB color to be retired anytime soon. :)

Just came from my niece's. Her nieces (husband's sisters girls) came over and the 3-yr old was served lunch in an Orange bowl because it's her favorite color. Needless to say, I honestly thought of you orangies.

Just some quick reminder photos now that the heat of summer is here to stay hydrated - and the Synapse 19 easily accommodates a 2L hydration bladder. I clipped mine to the top with a couple of mid-sized carabiners so it would stay put today, since I wanted extra water, but I am sure people have lots of variations on this. With a potentially toasty 4th of July, I will be putting this to use again soon.

I thought the bright sunny color would go well for the occasion. The only way to beat it would have been a Zest version. http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/06/28/8c92e794c0f7f01d31ce4564fc17a2e6.jpg

Stuff Sack Color Comparison: NW Sky (left) and Steel (right), on top of Black Dyneema A30


BTW, I think that NW Sky stuff sacks look great in the bag combinations that used Black Dyneema with Ultraviolet Dyneema linings -- both NW Sky and Steel work, but the lighter NW Sky should be particularly effective for the interiors of travel bags like the Western Flyer, Tri-Star and Aeronauts.

Small Cafe Bag in Black 400d Dyneema/Ultraviolet, folded Steel 200d Yarn Stuff Sack on left, folded NWSky Size #3 Travel Stuff Sack on right.

ETA: And, because I love looking at other people's pictures, and keep thinking about how nice NW Sky looks with Aubergine, I'm pretty sure that NW Sky travel stuff sacks would work well for anyone who happens to have an Aubergine/Steel combination, or even other Steel 400d Dyneema/Ultraviolet combinations, such as @celtical's collection posted (http://forums.tombihn.com/just-for-registered-members/8931-third-option-winner-post88775.html#post88775) in the Just for Registered members section of the forums, so I'll embed the image here to make it viewable for everyone:

Awake in the night, I clicked on TB forums for some soothing and saw my fav Aubergine Steel UV combo pictured, sleepily started admiring it and realized it was my own little family! Thanks, Moriond, for the happy memories. I did adopt a NWS TT, sweet indeed with the rest of those colors. I envision the lighter, shimmery gray as a great compliment and tonal accessory that's easy to spot against the steel or UV interiors. Love it!!

Oh, and I'm totally in with the prospect of Island, too! Didn't get in on that color in person, but from what I see, it would be a fabulous accent color or small accessory option (or lining...:) against the Aubergine, greys and UV!

I'm unclear what the status of Island is....don't want to get invested if it's a hard limited edition that's gone. But what are the chances of adding it as the oft-wished-for blue dyneema option on a more ongoing basis? I think it would SELL!!!

And besides, TB is located in a fabulous watery outdoor environment, which just cries out for a brand support via a yummy watery blue in its palate. Go Island!

After hearing and reading all the reviews/craze for recent Summer Debut, I finally receive my Island Travel Tray which I just ordered 2 weeks ago.
12698

On the middle, the Island Travel Tray
Amazing Island Blue. I prefer this strand of blue, comparing to French Blue Cordura. I know they could be different especially the fabrics aren't the same either. It will very lovely this see Island Blue happily spread into others Accessories like Packing Cube series especially Shoulder Bag, Backpack (WS/TS). Even 3D Fabric Organizer Cube and Fabric Organizer Pouch. It is unfortunate that the Island is only available at limited Aeronaut Bag combo and I am sure it will be a great lining for other many Bags though I still prefer Solar.

On the right, All-Parapack Olive/Olive Small Cafe Bag (front) and Parapack Steel/Iberian Medium Cafe Bag (rear).
I am very impressed by the Parapack Olive. Before this, I only have them in my Snake Chamber and Double Clear Organizer Pouch. They aren't that Olive especially at night, as in they could become very dark shade. But this Small Cafe Bag isn't and it will even be more beautiful under the Street during daytime! Moving to MCB, my first impression of the MCB is somewhat unappealing or taking a back of what I really expecting. The Steel Parapack color is very neutral. I understand that, as I own a Packing Wedge in Steel Parapack too but didn't expect this wholly neutral. Also, it is bigger than I thought. Definitely my no vote for Large Cafe Bag which could too big for me. I find the Small Cafe Bag just right for me. Most of the time. I will see how this MCB works out.

The above, mentioned 3 are what I just got.

In case, anyone wonder what is on the left - Solar Travel Tray (Front) and Nordic Packing Cube Shoulder Bag (Rear). They are for comparison purpose.

Thanks, @Rocks.

I am a big Steel fan, too. It may look unexciting in some photos, but in person Steel Ballistic is marvelous, with a wonderful sheen and dimensionality.

Steel goes with everything, and I love the contrast between the subtle exterior + the splash of color of a Dyneema interior.

Have only traveled with the Night Flight twice so far, but it has quickly become one of my faves.

Verde is my new favorite color!

12714

Ever since a kind forum member rehomed this fabulous Little Swift to me, I've been collecting accessories to match it. I hope this color sticks around. I am not sure I like it as much in larger bags, but I think it looks really nice in smaller doses. I enjoy it paired with other neutrals like black, grey and steel. Even the UV interior is ok though I'd prefer steel as a match.

I like Verde better than the two previous greens that were offered.

Unbelievably, I now have two Little Swifts, both acquired after it was discontinued. The other one is black, and I use it with equal frequency.

I really, really love picking up nice second hand items, partly because they are usually no longer made and partly? mainly? because it means something isn't going to waste. I was lucky enough to grab an old-style foam padded pouch, and absolutely *heart* it. The old foam is squishy and/but firm like nothing else is, and it's replaced my ultrasuede Nook pouch as my portable HD case. Perfect. My current laptop is giving up the ghost, and I wish I could get a cache in the old foam to accompany whatever smaller laptop it is that I'll be getting.

Here it is with a Nordic COW-- also a treasured second-hand goodie-- that's currently in rotation.

Aeronaut 45 in Guangzhou Baiyun Airport. Domestic flight to Shanghai. Almost fully stuffed but fit no problems. Boarding agents did not give me a second look for the bag.

Packing for our annual trip to Wisconsin--we are bringing a lot of TB gear!

http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/07/31/5ce90566a2512ef74eb552beb2a07fe1.jpg

Pictured: Swift, Little Swift, A45, Night Flight Travel Duffel, Daylight Backpack, a bunch of shop bags (both sizes), and a vast quantity of stuff sacks and other accessories.

Not pictured, but tagging along: linen SCB and my husband's Cadet.

ETA: the big bag to the right is our giant Lands End (or maybe LL Bean, I don't remember) tote bag that we use for the beach. I tried to replace it with two large shop bags, but was vetoed because apparently carried a giant, heavy canvas tote bag to the beach is "tradition."

I was looking at the photo thinking one of these bags is not like the others and then read your note on the canvas bag. 😀

I also have a large heavy canvas tote bag that still gets used. I like that it has a flexible zip top. It can get tucked in for small loads or expanded out for large loads. Unfortunately, I only have 1 small shop bag, but it is lovingly folded and tucked into my dyneema DLBP.

Since I have been working very hard recently, I rewarded myself with a play day today and went hiking in the North Cascades in WA. My lovely Nordic gift pouch tagged along and held my cards and cash. This is a great option for those days when one doesn't need separate compartments or the visibility of the clear organizer wallet. I will exercise restraint and just post three photos.

Even though it was slightly overcast, it was still a great day to be out and about. For what it is worth, you get all that year round sunshine, and Seattle definitely does not have that. ;)

Happy birthday to me! I got this Steel parapack/Iberian beauty from eBay (and fellow forum member). I know I was out of it because it took me until 9 pm last night to retrieve it from a spare room to open it! I started off the day with my longest run ever--12 miles. Then needed birthday pancakes. Exhaustion settled in so I took a nap, then made and delivered some fresh green juice to a close friend who is taking very good care of his wife, post-surgery. We ended up staying to chat, go for walks, and takeout.

@Ilkyway, 12 miles is over 19 km! I ran the last half with someone about your height and I will admit that it took a little extra work to keep up some of the time.

@ceepee, thanks for taking one for the team! I can always count on your support! PS Are you ready for some football?

@NWhikergal, happy belated birthday to you! Perhaps the almost birthday twins accounts for our mutual love of dyneema! The half is on the 22nd. I've had to take two separate two-week breaks because of shin splints,. But even though I can't walk very well today due to soreness of my longest run ever, I feel ready! I've had to slow considerably (and I mean a lot, from a 10:15 min/mile pace to almost 12), but my goal is to finish and not worry about my time. :)

A few Bihn items help keep all my stuff organized and nearby my hammock at camp last week. An iberian Travel Tray (TT) holds my pocket stuff when I climb in, an iberian yarn stuff sack (YSS) hold my shower kit (an REI pack towel and a burnt orange Clear 3D Organizer Cube (3DOC) full of toiletries), and a Northwest Sky Size 1 Travel Stuff Sack (TSS) holds electrical bits like a 10000mW USB battery, a USB light, USB fan and micro USB cables. The yellow bag is an off brand dry sack holding hammock parts like stakes and paracord.

Apologies for the poor quality image.

Still a big fan of the Smart Alec, ever since my last travel experience, where it ended up holding all my clothes until my suitcase decided to join me. Now it is one of my favorite travel bags.

This week's trip was a family outing to the North Carolina shore, and I had to fly to join my sister for the drive. I was laden down with all kinds of beach gear and gifts, and carrying more than allowed. I decided to go with all black items to keep a lower profile: my grey suitcase (which fits easily into the overhead), my new black Smart Alec (which fit right under the seat in front of me), and my Little Swift (great for the car trip which followed).

As it turned out, my 6:30am flight was not full, and getting my bags on wasn't a big problem.

Here is a Smart Alec fitting nicely underneath the seat in front of me.

12874

And my Little Swift. Technically over the limit, but I was glad no one gave me any grief about it. It probably could have fit into my suitcase in a pinch. The great thing about all the Swifts -- at least the ballistic ones -- is that they sit upright by themselves. This is convenient when they are in the car at my feet, sitting next to my night table wherever I am sleeping, or at the side of my desk at work.

After finally accepting the fact that a Dyneema Co-Pilot will not be available before I leave for Scotland in September, I re-evaluated things and decided to go with an Aubergine/Wasabi Pilot. I'm not disappointed :)

I threw in an Ultrasuede Screen Cloth because my glasses are smudge magnets. So far, it's my favorite cloth - way thicker and of better quality than the ones that came with my glasses.

My new-to-me Ruck's Sac enjoying some indoor late afternoon sun. I really like the design of this TARDIS bag. The main compartment holds a ton for a bag this size. Features-wise, it's more my kind of small backpack than the S19-- relatively few compartments and plenty of depth.

12953

Never mind the tentacles in my bag. Not pictured inside are my 11" laptop, pencil case, FJN, and Hobonichi. I took advantage of the Wasabi carabiner release to order the KTPs that I don't have. I reorganised some backpack essentials into the carabiner/KTP system and find that this arrangement makes it much easier for me to switch between bags, since I need only unhook the carabiner instead of 3 different pouches. Very convenient!

12955

Tons of space in the front pocket. Although I'm still wondering why the bag comes with a "triangle ring" instead of the usual O-rings, the triangle ring works just as well.

Oh, it's pretty awesome. The main compartment is 13cm deep so I can put a lot of stuff there. Unlike the S19 there are no pockets to "cheat" you of depth, so you get the whole 13cm... I stuff it with my laptop, FJN, MOC, KTPs, pencil case, etc. and there is some vertical space leftover. The trade-off is that it doesn't look as streamlined or as grown-up/sophisticated, but I like the look as it reminds me of some packs that I had as a kid. While the S19 is my default pack most of the time, I've always felt it had a bit too much in-built organisation for my liking. The giant (relatively speaking) main compartment and protruding front pocket of the Ruck's Sac is just about right for me, even though it means I have stuff dangling off the O-rings in the main compartment.

Both the back panel and bottom of the bag have foam padding that is still in great shape despite the bag's age (I think it is maybe 7 years old). And of course the foam straps, while softer than what I'm used to, are still super comfy! I have no doubt this bag has a lot of life left in it.

(Like many TB bags that I've purchased second hand, this one was pretty grubby, so I scrubbed it to the best of my ability and got it clean shortly after receiving it.)

The first pacifier disappeared somewhere on the 3 mile walk out along Dungeness Spit. When the second (and last) disappeared somewhere on the walk back and 3 grown men began walking the beach in a line in search of it (and incredibly managed to find it!) I knew it was time for a Tom Bihn hack.

Meet key strap as pacifier holder. Clip one end through a button hole on the jacket and the other through the opening in the paci.

I had a very fruitful visit to the farmer's market today and used my Smart Alec to haul all of my goodies. The best part is that an 11 liter REI soft cooler with Yeti ice pack fit perfectly in the bottom of the pack to store some cold items, then I stacked some lovely fruit and veggies on top. Perfect! Oddly, I felt inexplicably thirsty by the time I finished up (see last photo).

Starting orientation for a new job tomorrow and the large organizer will be holding my notepad and a folder for whatever paperwork I may get. The folder is a close fit in the pouch but it was the only thing I could find at Staples that was not flimsy and also not a way too big multi-compartment filing system.

I have the SCB in Linen/Navy. It's one of my favorite bags to carry. I sold my MCB (Cocoa/Olive) and replaced it with the larger LCB in Grey/Olive. It will carry my 13" laptop. I love how unassuming the Cafe bags are. They just snug right up against my profile and protect the important stuff inside.

Steel Ballistic Night Flight Travel Duffel and Black Dyneema Pilot made the perfect travel duo for 4-day trip to Montréal this weekend.

(Kudos to the YUL airport for these awesomely-comfortable chaise lounges in the terminal, btw.)

While the NFTD alone would have been plenty for this trip, I decided to bring Pilot along for the ride, too -- as a day bag to hold a bottle of wine and snacks for picnics in Parc La Fontaine, and to to offer the flexibility to bring back some gifts.

Here's the Pilot taking a cappuccino-and-scone break at Café Myriade. (Yes, it does look like the people at the next table are laughing at me for snapping photos of my bag.) :-)

We did it - so far at least - carry on only thanks to 3 aeronauts (two 45s and one 30), 2 cafe bags (med and small) one DLBP, plus two shopping bags for occasional extras. The youngest two kids are carrying their regular school bags. Kids aged 13, 11 and 9 are each carrying about 4 kg. adults carrying about 8kg.

We all love the bags and stuff sacks, organiser pouches, etc, although the kids love to tease me about being a Tom bihnion fanatic!

We went to the Eat Real Festival (Eat Real Fest (http://eatrealfest.com)) at Jack London Square in Oakland, California on Sunday.

We brought lots of resealable plastic baggies with us because we knew we wanted to sample a lot of different dishes--our plan was to save all our leftovers so we wouldn't get full on too few items. So rather than bringing a smaller bag, I took my black Dyneema Daylight Backpack... and it was perfect!

Here I am in front of the Koja Kitchen truck waiting for my order--they serve Korean-Japanese food. I got their "Zen Koja", a vegan burger of soy and portobello, sandwiched between their "fried garlic rice bun"--yum!

Mid-Autumn Festival, which is easily associated with Lantern and Mooncake, falls on this coming Sunday 27/09/2015. I think most will celebrate on Saturday night. Tomorrow at Asia.

My wife and I were helping out my parents to make more Chilled Mooncakes (冰皮月饼) for our relatives. It is our first year making and this is actually our forth and last round over the past few days. Each round took about 1-2 hours (may vary depends on Ingredient Preparation), we made about 30-50 pieces. Most of them, we are giving to my Father's customers, a gratitude for their support. Kinda like Tom Bihn did every December. Hopefully, everyone enjoy it. It is hard to fulfill everyone taste-bud. Can I say this is quite related to Thanksgiving?

Anyway, I would also like to take the opportunity to thank everyone here and the Staffs for your extremely kind hearts and patience. I am continually being amazed and touched. I always reminded myself of the high/positive spirit of you guys so I could try to do my part to make the World better. At least, from my radius. I know, I may sound naive especially with recent so many negativity around the World. A small start wouldn't hurt, right?

All the best. Have a great weekend too!

The snow skin looks great, @weirdguy. Snow skin with reduced sugar lotus paste is my favourite. (And since my tastes are really traditional, I don't like the ones with all the novelty fillings!)

Weirdguy, what an awesome post! (I'll have a green one, please.)

Sure, @Rocks. I am delighted to make a few for you but we have to live in the same town first :P Because the Chilled/Snow Mooncake couldn't last long in non-chilled form. Normally, we ask to finish eating them within 3 days, after it is being freshly made to ensure consistent taste and texture. And it had to be kept and served quickly from Fridge.

By the way @Rocks, I called the green one "Wasabi". Eversince (I think everyone here too. At least almost everyone) joining the Tom Bihn Forum, I'd been calling every color with Tom Bihn Color. The Wasabi / Green is not actually make of Wasabi but is made of slight pinch of Green Tea Powder or Matcha. Originally, the Mooncake's Skin is white.

However, we aren't having any mooncakes this year as my hubs is cutting down on sugar. Hope you have a good lantern/mid-autumn festival!

Me too, @adalangdon. Those sell in the Market even though it stated Reduced Sugar is still quite sugary for my taste. I don't eat them much, until this year. I would said our homemade Mooncake is 50% even less sweet. Also, I normally prefer a Thick Skin Snow Mooncake with less filling/paste. Best, if there is Dragon Fruit blended-filling. The taste is super awesome! But we still don't know how to make those yet!

Actually, I'm not sure why. My mum used Red Bean Paste, rather than the usual Lotus Paste. It is an interesting combo. My mum even made limited quantity of White Bean Paste.


@wierdguy They look so pretty! How could you eat them?
Haha. I could easily relate that. When I was delivering those Boxes of Mooncake, some young female Staffs said similar - small, "pretty" and "colorful". We put 6 Mooncake in each Box. A mix of available colors. In this round, we would place 2 Wasabi (Green), 2 Pink and 2 Zest (Orange).

I really, really love picking up nice second hand items, partly because they are usually no longer made and partly? mainly? because it means something isn't going to waste. I was lucky enough to grab an old-style foam padded pouch, and absolutely *heart* it. The old foam is squishy and/but firm like nothing else is, and it's replaced my ultrasuede Nook pouch as my portable HD case. Perfect. My current laptop is giving up the ghost, and I wish I could get a cache in the old foam to accompany whatever smaller laptop it is that I'll be getting.

Here it is with a Nordic COW-- also a treasured second-hand goodie-- that's currently in rotation.

@adalangdon, I never had a chance to comment on your post from late July, but the denser foam that was used in that medium padded organizer pouch from a few years back is also my favorite. Any padded pouch or cache in that color, which was called Charcoal, will use the denser foam. So will padded pouches made in a lighter, more silvery color (excerpted from my post (http://forums.tombihn.com/questions-about-bags/9561-quick-question-re-padded-pouches-post98860.html#post98860) (#3) in the Quick question re: padded pouches (http://forums.tombihn.com/questions-about-bags/9561-quick-question-re-padded-pouches.html) thread:

Your charcoal with foam option was used for the first set of laptop caches with dense foam (about the time when the original Synapse debuted -- that's when I got my first vertical cache in Charcoal for the MacBook 13). It was also used for the first iPad/Netbook Cache, and for the separate divided padded pockets of the first and second geneneration Ristrettos, the updated (for larger laptops) Buzz Sling Backoack, and when the Ristrettos for iPad and 11" MacBook Air debuted. There are many more laptop cache options with the dense foam in black, if you can identify them. The caches for the original Cadet (with small webbing loops for rails) were all made if this denser foam, although this design changed a little before they came out with caches for the iPad Mini, and the later produced caches for the Cadet used the current design foam and nylon stitched outsides that was in place by the time all the current caches with rails were made.

As another comment, the same, dense, foam padding was used for the inside of the (retired) Breve for iPad. That bag also has the most luxurious feeling Taslon nylon interior compared to any of the caches or padded pouches I have ever felt.

So, in conclusion, as you know, I have favorites of all the different materials that have been used -- including the clear urethane used for cubes and the pockets of the Swift and Little Swift. That generation of dense foam is my favorite for my caches and padded pouches. They did make laptop caches for the 11" MacBook Air in that dense foam -- I got one for someone who is notoriously negligent about using caches and Brain Cells for his laptops. If I get an 11" MacBook Air or other laptop that would fit that cache, I intend to steal it and replace it with a current model cache, since he'll never know the difference!

ETA: These are what some of the older padded pouches with the dense foam padding looked like. You had the option of selecting either the white or red trim, at the time

@adalangdon, All the 13" MacBook Pros from earlier generations (i.e., non-Retina models) can use the size 6Z Cache. I just answered this question earlier today in a post in the Trying to decide for work carry (http://forums.tombihn.com/questions-about-bags/10196-trying-decide-work-carry-post109620.html#post109620) thread:


@PandaOps,

The size 6Z is the cache (http://www.tombihn.com/fit-guide-popup.html) designed for 13" MacBooks of the non-retina and non-air variety. People who have the 13" retina MacBook Pro and the 13" MacBook Air can also use the cache for the 13" MacBook Air for both.


You can also read a summary in the older Cache for a 13" Unibody MacBook Pro? (http://forums.tombihn.com/questions-about-bags/7060-cache-13-unibody-macbook-pro.html) thread. As I noted in my earlier reply to your post, you're much more likely to find black caches in that dense foam for an old 13" MacBook or 13" MacBook Pro (non-Retina model) than in the Charcoal variety, in terms of sheer numbers that they produced after switching to Black, but seeing a Charcoal Cache for an old 13" MacBook or MacBook Pro (i.e., Size 6Z vertical or horizontal cache) is a dead giveaway that they used the older, denser foam.

HTH and good luck with your search.

I love Bryce. Can't wait to get back there some day. Curious though - why the SA for one trip and the S25 for the other? I'm considering a back pack for next year and I'm always curious why people make choices between these 2. I always thought I'd be a synapse girl for the organization but I love the look of the SA. (Plus I am not nearly as organized as I think I am.)

I'm considering a back pack for next year and I'm always curious why people make choices between these 2. I always thought I'd be a synapse girl for the organization but I love the look of the SA. (Plus I am not nearly as organized as I think I am.)

Bryce was probably my favorite out of all the parks we visited - absolutely loved hiking in the hoodoos!

It's funny, I didn't even really consider the Smart Alec when I needed a backpack for school. I was so sure I would be a Synapse girl. The the lovely enablers on the forum made me reconsider and I bought one a couple of years later, just to see. Now, I find I use the Smart Alec more often, though I still also love the Synapse.

For the 16 day trip, I took the Smart Alec because I had bought the Insulated CamelBak (http://www.rei.com/product/811766/camelbak-unbottle-insulated-reservoir-100-fl-oz) and thought I could use the gatekeeper clips to attach it to the bag where the lower mod pocket would sit. It didn't quite line up, but I could have rigged it somehow if necessary. I didn't end up needing to do that.

For the Fern Lake hike, I took the Synapse because I usually use the Smart Alec for work (because my lunch bag fits better) and didn't want to unpack it.

Both packs work well for hiking. I find I tend to use different accessories with them though. For other scenarios I pick one depending on the specific situation and whichever one I'm feeling at the time. Sorry - I know that's probably not that helpful.

My bags are cat furniture when they're not hauling my stuff. I really don't find the cordura to be an issue. Our fluffy girl is buff-colored, so you would think her hair on indigo cordura would be a big deal. It isn't, though. My bag is pretty much hair-free after some dusting and being jostled about a bit, and not a lot sticks to it to begin with.

I took the kiddo to tour Flagler College today. They have one of the prettiest campuses I have ever seen. We received a voucher to dine in the cafeteria, so we caught some pretty good grub and dined on the authentic Tiffany chairs. It cracked me up to sit on them while simultaneously pulling up to a Formica table! What a juxtaposition!http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/10/08/58b90c6ec62d8d7279dca16a46f0fd55.jpg
Here is my LCB bag in grey sitting on the chair. Some of the chairs in the hall are copies of the Tiffany ones. I didn't check to see if this particular chair was the "real deal."

Pretty assortment of colours! Now I'm a bit regretful that I didn't get any of the LE dyneema pouches (I've de-pouched my EDC by quite a bit and don't use as many pouches as I used to, so I didn't get any).

My snake charmer is a art supplies holder too. I like it for that purpose because it's large enough to accommodate pen sets on top of loose pens. And I am guessing the Traveler's Notebook works a lot better for you than the FJN?

Yes about the TN. I had the FJ but it didn't work. What I like about the TN is being able to carry different notebooks for different interests. The one that gets the most use is my journal. I am also using different sizes, including a standard size and a FN size. Both can be shucked into a purse or other bag. I've collected some really cool TN covers!

Not seen in the pic is the BO/UV Swift where the SC lives along with books/electronics/back pillow for when I'm out/about, and my plum/steel MCB holding several OPs. (solar and kiwi). I also always carry a #3 Iberian TSS which holds 2 stainless steel Contigo travel mugs for coffee and water. Lots of Tom Bihn gets me through the day!

Same! I really, really want to see the kid backpack launched ASAP! Not all of my wee ones are big enough to carry a DLBP and I need to order some backpacks soon for an upcoming trip. I would love for the packs to be Tom Bihn, but I can't buy what isn't for sale so...Fingers crossed that these smaller packs are launched in the next week or two. It would make my trip planning and shopping infinitely easier!

Marty's a really friendly guy! He was dressed in the same clothes yesterday as well (that was his attire in the original Back to the Future movie). He also has the jacket, shoes, hat and Hover Board from Back to the Future Part II.

Ilkyway

Quick and dirty as I head to work...this bag is definitely going to conform to what's in it. In these pics all I have in the middle is my iPad and a travelers' notebook. In the outer pocket 1, I have an umbrella, a couple of small organizer pouches with electronic odds and ends, and a small Q kit. In outer pocket 2, I have another small Q kit, a fairly empty side effect, and a roll up pen case. Seen from the side, there are fabric ripples due to the center section being relatively empty. Seen from the front, I really like how the "ears" of the bag go vertical (I have always found the PU to be better looking in use due to this - when at rest those "ears" tend to point outward making the bag look wider at the top). When I get home tonight I will do some comparison packs with my ballistic PU and my mirror less camera kit - lots of hard shapes and angles to test. I also really like how the various fabric sections show against each other in dyneema, I feel it does a neat job of showing off the complex bag construction and the arch of the zippers - provides more visual interest.

Can a mod please rotate my vertical picture to the correct orientation? THANKS!

I've also just taken delivery of a dyneema PU but am having trouble uploading a photo. However, I can vouch that it's a fantastic bag. I love the messenger style of the PU and use my ballistic one regularly as an edc. The dyneema version is more casual, so much lighter (my first dyneema bag) and the extra give is a definite plus. For me, this will also be my go-to personal item when traveling as well as an amazing edc.

Bijouxandbeads thise are great pictures! Not only do you give a detailed overview what is all in that PU of yours but your comparision with the balistic one is impressive. I love how Balistic keeps its structure and I adore my Aubergine PU for its gorgous color but this makes me hope once more, that we will see a second 400er Dyneema color in the future.

I have something small for you: My size 4 Knitting Tool Pouch as an on the go cable-kitt. This conteins everything I might need to recharch my most used teck: MP3-Player, phone, tablet and e-reader. Needing just one cable with two additional adapters made this kitt quite portable in my opinion. Thouse batteries are for my Guardian Light which is in the big bag of the day what ever I am useing.

Quite excited to now have a kiwi luggage tag, from a fellow forum member! This is a color that I like very much, though in small doses. In real life it is even more greenish and less yellow than the photo, and so bright that it almost fluoresces -- perfect for a luggage tag, right?

13592

I have found that my business cards, which would be my choice as an insert for these tags, do not fit exactly*. I would need to trim the corners of the card first. Has anyone tried out MOO's mini cards? I'm curious if they would fit without modification.

(In case anyone is wondering why I have so many tags, I like to put them on every bag, even the small ones, when I'm traveling. Also, there are so many pretty colors!)

EDIT: See the next few posts. It turns out that my business cards are a non-standard shape.

(In case anyone is wondering why I have so many tags, I like to put them on every bag, even the small ones, when I'm traveling. Also, there are so many pretty colors!)

@bchaplin, Can you either give the dimensions of your business card that doesn't fit when you try to insert it into the luggage tag, or show a picture that gives the boundaries of the card when it overlies the front of the luggage tag? (You can flip to show the back of the card overlying the front window of the luggage tag -- I'm only interested in the sizing information here.) The reason I'm asking, is that when we were first shown a prototype design of the luggage tag, with a different (slanted) opening design for inserting cards, I checked this against the largest business cards I had, and also did a web search of the standard business card sizes world-wide. (The standard ones in Australia and Southeast Asia are slightly larger than some of the European ones I sent back pictures of to Darcy, and also some U.S, businesses or restaurants with European, etc. branches used the larger cards). I also pointed out that even if it were possible to insert the larger business cards (with some difficulty, by flexing them), it would be vastly more useful to also adopt a design where you could easily insert rigid cards, like transit cards and hotel key cards.

So, you're quite correct that many people will try to insert their business cards into the luggage tags, and I'm curious as to how the fit fails for you. (I should add that since I'm also a Kiwi enthusiast, I ordered most of my luggage tags when this product was first released, before they ran out of Kiwi Ballistic Nylon. So if there was a later size modification, I wouldn't be aware of it. But I think they only made the handle loop longer?)

Do you mean MOO cards (http://www.moo.com/) (source of custom business cards) for your query about mini business cards fitting?

moriond

And, totally off topic, but I don't usually add too many comments to a photos thread to disrupt the flow, but I have to express my admiration of @proctor's awesome picture that my fellow mods have already commented on. Terrific texture in the frost and colors.

bchaplin
10-24-2015, 06:26 PM
Thanks, @moriond.
I can send a picture tomorrow. (Maybe I should start a new thread, or pm you, to avoid sidetracking this one?)
So, I should say, the cards I have now are made by Moo, and it does seem that they are a different shape than standard cards (https://support.moo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204390240-What-s-the-difference-between-Standard-Size-and-MOO-Size-Business-Cards-), something I hadn't realized before. They do kind of fit, but not squarely inside the luggage tag due to the rounded corners -- I would think that a smaller card could go in there centered, which would make my OCD brain happier.

My cards are personal cards I had made up to hold my contact info. I'll try out the "real" business cards I have at work and send picture of both.

EDIT: I posted some photos here. (http://forums.tombihn.com/photos-videos-and-reviews/10297-business-cards-tom-bihn-luggage-tags.html#post111514)

First of all, from her post (http://forums.tombihn.com/photos-videos-and-reviews/9829-colors-dyneema-limitid-run-great-colors-post103543.html#post103543) (#38) in the COLORS! Dyneema in a limitid run of great colors (http://forums.tombihn.com/photos-videos-and-reviews/9829-colors-dyneema-limitid-run-great-colors.html) thread from June:

Then, @Pokilani's post from late June, earlier in the present thread:

Some gift giving is happening today! These are for family set to arrive in a few hours. My precious Dyneema/Island A30 is out to be delivered today too! A gift for me!!!!

Followed by @ceepee's comment:

@Pokilani, nice picture, but I can't help but think it would look even nicer if you followed @Ilkyway's lead and filled them with M&Ms ........ bear that in mind when you post a photo of your A30 perhaps? :D

And then @Pokilani's reply:

I tried, but I ate them.

And, before I forget, there was @gochicken's picture from the Tom Bihn bags as art (http://forums.tombihn.com/general-bag-discussion/7588-tom-bihn-bags-art.html) thread:

Great pictures, all. (And @Ilkyway, Sapphire Dyneema came and went long before there were travel trays, travel stuff sacks, or even the larger size Shop Bags.)

ETA: And while I'm free-associating here, we should probably give equal time to non-M&M's type candies -- like Chocolates! So, without further ado, @LordBute's pictures and text excerpted from the Favorite organizer: stuff sacks (http://forums.tombihn.com/questions-about-bags/8941-favorite-organizer-stuff-sacks.html) thread:

I had a Nordic Large Cafe Bag, didn't think I needed it, sold it, and have such buyers remorse I can hardly stand it. I'd love it if TB would offer the Lg CB In Dyneema again.

Darn it, I had no special cat with bag pics to share that day. But this guy decided that today, being a rainy day, was perfect for bag appreciation! He's lying on something like 4 bags. Spoilt fellow. (Today was cleaning day, so all the bags were dumped on the chair.)

Bugger I missed Cat-Day too. When I sorted out all the dyneema I wanted to have in that picture some posts above, I collected them all on a chair. Well a cat in this house thought: what a nice place to make a rest:

I've always been a little envious of all the animal photos with TB stuff. Gracie has never shown in interest in any of my bags until just now. Came back into my bedroom and found her curled up on my freshly washed DLBP! http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/10/31/6657527e5fe48db18bb26eab04087e55.jpg

Today's carry is a Small Cafe Bag in Curry. I find the back pocket to be the ideal place for stowing a tiny Miami Dolphins fan for easy access.

Here it is at Barajas airport in Madrid (above).... and stowed on the AVE (Spanish high-speed train) from Madrid to Cordoba.

Family of five off to Europe for 2 months with carry on only - it all fit so well in the back of the car on our way to the airport that we almost kept feeling like where is the rest of our stuff?

In our car, the bags took up less than half the space of the boot - it is a very old, but very reliable Volvo. When we rented cars in UK, Greece and Slovenia, for brief periods, the bags took up more space, but still fit easily. Such a wonderful change from previous travels with huge suitcases that took up so much room and small carry on bags squeezed in around the kids.

Thanks to Tom Bihn for wonderful luggage and for getting us to try carry on only travel. Definitely the way to go!

And just one more...

The Tom Bihn secret hand symbol!

We had another version with crossing the hands to make an X, followed by the Tom Bihn hand symbol = not Tom Bihn bags - to politely point out people struggling with huge unweildy rolling suitcases or enormous backpacks and daypacks on the front, as we slipped by easily with our aeronauts etc.

Having been the ones struggling with too much stuff in the past, we really appreciated how easy this trip was.

My first bag (aeronaut 45) - the quality is everything it's been advertised to be - thus was even better than my already high expectations. You guys at Tom Bihn can be proud of your work!

Love the colors, too.

Navy/Wasabi is my favorite color combo. Classy and spicy at the same time.

That will be a deal-breaker for me. My fountain pens are Lamy size or bigger...

Fellow fat pen user here. Damn, I should've seen @gochicken 's Rav post when she said that her Al Star wouldn't fit, but I had checked out by then. Now I don't know if my standard Vacumatic will go into the slot :S

I hope TB makes the slots wider, in addition to making one with more slots!
