      These are very small, and would make great guard animals for our travel stuff. If properly trained, of course.
      Given the TB crew's extensive experience with puppies, I've got to think that something like this is in the works.
      But where would you put the O-rings?

        The Tom Bihn guard animal product may involve some kind of travel harness, with plenty of room for O-rings, as well as the training.

              Struggling to stay up to 9pm eastern after a long week of work, an early day and a couple of beers. I'm hoping curiosity can keep me awake for the next 25 minutes.
              Getting to the point with too many bags to list them all. Current daily carry is a PickUp Truck and Everyday Cubelet. Love all my shop bags, ghost whales, cubelets. Hoping to travel again soon to use my A30 and co-pilot.

                Am I the only one that keeps looking at the clock to see if it's time yet?

                        I love it! If only I could pick one up when I fly back into Seattle tomorrow AM. Great design.

                          Here's a recap of what debuted this evening:

                          The updated Aeronaut 45 is available for order. See our blog post all about the updates.

                          The updated Parental Unit and the new Wheelchair or Stroller Straps accessory are available for order. More details are here on the blog.

                          We debuted our new Sketchbook & Pen.

                          And the updated Aeronaut 45 marked the return of our Portable Culture logo label. Here's a blog post about the history of Portable Culture and here's a video in which Tom discusses the various logo labels we've used over the years.

                            Looks like the new A45 is next on my purchase list! Thanks for the great updates! Super excited about the logo.

                              The Sketchbook & Pen, sooooo cute!

                              Now, Mods and Crew as well as Mothership neighbors, have to take picture of these 2 with their EDCs because, while I understand measurements, I have spacial questions.

                              Where does The Sketchbook fit in the FJN? What pocket(s) of the DLBC, DLBP, S19 are most suited for it? Does it fit in the SBC and where? Does it fit inside the clear pockets of the Swift?


                              Thank you, so much for the labels timeline video, as well as the history of the Tom Bihn Shop, the Portable Culture label and the wonderful fact that Darcy came up with the name.


                              The updates make two great TB bags, even better, the very smart inside handles, lockable or double zipper and the pure genius ideas of the Aeronaut 45's removable back panel, as well as the slight expansion of the PU, which enables it to stand up and, keeps its curvy forms.

                              I also appreciate the (very practical) new Wheelchair or Stroller Straps accessory, which could also be used for walkers and pet strollers, maybe to secure a TB bag in a tricycle wire basket.

                              Can't wait for the pictures and video demonstrations!

                              As usual, a wonderful debut!

                                Darcy, do the new wheelchair/stroller straps work in addition to a shoulder strap or are they instead of a shoulder strap? I couldn't quite tell from the pictures. (Maybe it will all become clear once there are photos of it in use.)
                                I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

                                I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.
