    What's so nice about the movable feast?

    I have a couple tom bihn bags and am fond of them all. Currently onebagging it with my s19 in the Netherlands.

    I am curious to those of you that own a movable feast. Does it help in any way my s19 or s25 could not? What are the pros that make it worth the purchase if I already have a bihn bag.

    Thanks so much for all you opinions! You may talk me into a purchase!

    I bought a Moveable feast and while it was lovely and had many functional pockets with labels, I found it too heavy to be practical. I however love love love my shop bags. A large shop bag will hold almost as much, is much smaller when folded up to tuck in a pocket, has two interior pockets (or exterior if you use it inside out like my co-worker does) and is only 6.4 oz where the Moveable feast is a whopping 22 oz. It went back. I really wanted to love it but i couldn't see using it.
    A30-halcyon/UV,, S19-black halcyon/Island, SCB-Original halcyon/Wasabi, MCB-Halycon/Wasabi, SK-black halcyon/Island, SE-Aubergine/Wasabi, LS-Aubergine Fjord, shop bags and numerous bits and bobs in as many colors as i can rationalize

      I'd vote for a shop bag as well.

      I like the look of the moveable feast, the organization and all that seems super awesome, but I can't quite bring myself to drop $90 on one, when for about the same amount of money I could get two large shop bags. Or a large and a small shop bag.
      The shop bags are incredibly useful, you can use them for SO much more than food shopping.

        Great to know! I like that in the description of the tom bihn they kind of own it about the bag not being ideal for everyone. Just frequent small batch shoppers.

          I ordered a Moveable Feast and sent it back. It is a very specific type of tote bag. If you plan on going to a farmers market and buying a few vegetables, a can or jar of something, a bouquet of flowers and a bottle of wine, and walk home with your purchases, then it's perfect. But the pockets are very specific for these things. I tried test packing it as a weaving tote bag (holding the equipment for my weaving hobby), and it was not sized right to hold my equipment and yarn. Plus the MF is heavy for a tote bag.

          I love the large shop bags, though. Lightweight, holds a lot, very versatile, and folds down flat for packing in other bags. I have one in every color.

            I started typing up a response, had a Déjà vu moment and recalled this thread:

            Any Feedback: The Moveable Feast

            Here's my post/feedback on using the Moveable Feast, and it still holds true down to my avocado criteria.

            As you put it @edward.dennihy , the MF is designed for frequent small-batch shoppers, and I'm of that sort. I go through phases of living off of Chipotle and pizza, but most of the time I enjoy cooking and spend an hour in the kitchen in the evenings. It's fun to choose a recipe online or out of one of my cookbooks, grab a Moveable Feast, head to the store and buy a bag's worth of groceries to make something new. I've also found that the Moveable Feast truly excels at carrying a heavy load of groceries (glass bottles of juice or chai, milk, canned tomatoes, etc.) The specific pockets and areas -- the avocado shelf, the flower pocket, wine and baguette pockets -- can either be pushed out of the way or flattened to accommodate large items.

            I do buy fresh flowers for myself or other people more often now, probably because of the flower pocket!

            Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

            Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.
