I love this little guy. We went to Heidelberg on Monday to show my Mom around. In the main compartment the CP held my steel dyneema SE that serves as my diaper kit for the toddlers, wallet, knitting project in a MYSS, a medium clear OP that held shout wipes/food shears/lip balm and some other items, in the left pocket phone , sunglasses ans glasses, center pocket held my umbrella (Germany in the spring...be prepared!), and the right pocket held some snacks for the kids, my keys clipped to the o-ring and more hand wipes....because KIDS. It was a lovely day to show her round the city. And how gorgeous is Navy ballistic? It looks great with everything and wears like iron.

And the UV dyneenma is so cheery. UV is not my favorite dyneema color, but in small doses it is perfect :) and it matched my sock yarn.

P.S. The socks have been finished and are currently being worn.

Ugh. Sorry the photos are sideways. I'd correct them but our internet is still surprisingly slow for Germany.

Great pics! I like how the shadows gave the Navy ballistic a gradient. For your 2nd pic, I was nearly misled into thinking the blue spot was your CP in the far off background! lol

The navy/Iberian Copilot is my favorite looking Tom Bihn bag. It's so pretty! I'm admiring mine right now. I love the deep blue color.

@flaneuse Hope this is OK. I rotated your images and reloaded them into the post. You still have ownership of the rotated images under the attachments.

Nice sock yarn! Is that the Magic Loop technique? I haven't attempted that yet - I'm using two circular needles for my first sock project (with German yarn, funnily enough).

Enjoy your time in Germany!

flaneuse - As a fellow knitter, can I just say; your socks are gorgeous! I've got one rainbow-colored sock cast on right now, using the Magic Loop method, which I haven't tried before. So far, going down the cuff is easy. Turning the heel? WE SHALL SEE.

It's fun to see other bags out in the wild, doing things. Thanks for the photos! :)

Nice! I took a Brain Bag to the Heidelberg Schloss a couple of years ago. The view is making me feel nostalgic. :-)

Did you also take the Philosopher's Walk along the other side of the river (even better for viewing the Old Town and Castle)?

P.S. I think that when I was last in Heidelberg I carried an Aeronaut and a Lux bag.

We did a very long walk along the river, down below, but I didn't know of it as the Philosopher's walk. My kids also touched the mice sculpture that is supposed to help them have many children. I've forgotten, but they also made sure to touch the part of the statue (monkey? mirror?) that ensures a return to the city in the future.

I should visit Heidelberg some day - not only is it twinned with Cambridge, but it's the HQ of the place I now work. All I need is a legitimate business reason to go there...

@Toblerhaus The Philosopher's walk is along the opposite side of the river from the Castle, but higher up, so the view of the Old Town and Castle is better. There's also a Philosopher's Garden partway along the path. And here's a picture of the Monkey holding a mirror (http://exploreheidelbergpfalz.wordpress.com/schwarzwald-2/heidelbergs-monkey-on-the-old-bridge/) (sorry for the quality, but I took it with a colleague's cell phone camera -- the first time this feature was used).
