    Might have to try and take that into consideration next time I place a larger order...
    USPS is only an option when your order is less than $50.
    Getting to the point with too many bags to list them all. Current daily carry is my Black Halcyon Zeitgeist with a Cobalt Cerylon 3DOC as my "purse"/

      Hi Everyone

      This is my first time posting here and I think it’s my 3rd order from Tom Bihn since I became obsessed with finding a way to travel with minimal things with me and packing super efficiently. I’m the best packer in my family and everyone needs me to pack for them. I haven’t managed to pack a minimal amount of items because I was looking at it the wrong way... anyway I am very very very impatient to get my order in the mail. I’m my order that’s currently on its way I got the Synapse 25 with Freudian slip, a mesh pocket, travelers tray & a clear pencil case with wrist band - I already have two small pouches and 4 strap length holders and I am madly in love with the quality. That’s why I have checked on my order like 10 times today and it’s not even noon. I’m officially going crazy because of how much I can’t wait to enjoy and have fun with my order. And yes I will pack and unpack it a bunch of times

        Welcome to the Forums Gigbrodt!
        Once your SN25 arrives and you have a chance to test pack, post some photos for us!

We wonder ourselves how many folks prefer the option of metal pulls vs. cord pulls; will take this feedback into consideration for sure. (anyone else reading this: feel free to chime in!)
            Darcy I know I'm late to the party (in my defense, I'm new here!), but I like having the option of either/or. I'd rather have the cord pulls shipped separately vs having to remove them when my bag has arrived, as I've ordered paracord in different colors so I can make my own zipper pulls.

            That said, maybe make it optional to have them added in advance? Like with the drop-downs for adding key straps and such.

                Thanks G42! (You're quick!) I'm a recent convert but very happy to be here. Hoping the S22 I have on order will be my unicorn bag, and I can finally stop searching, lol. (Not that that will stop me from playing around with organization options and whatnot.. )

                  It came! My black icon with rainbow zips, it is gorgeous, very excited to use it once I can emerge from my house. Might even take it with me grocery shopping just so I can test run it.

                    So jealous, mel! I'm trying really hard to be patient and not bug the TB staff for an estimate on when they'll start shipping things again (I know they're doing important work up there). But man, it's been hard to wait, lol.

                      I am really looking forward to getting the two masks I ordered. While my job has overall shifted to a maximum telework model, my office is deemed essential, so we have to maintain minimal rotational in office staffing. I do not have any sewing gear, aptitude, or materials, and it will be really nice to have a nice cloth mask rather than the makeshift rubber band version I would be assembling myself. I felt so stressed out when I was in last week, that I can only imagine how those in more densely populated settings are coping. Thank you so much for producing these!

                        Per USPS, my masks should show up on Monday. It's nice to have something to anticipate right now.

                              Been waiting for my order since this whole thing kicked off and it's finally arriving today! I'm not ashamed to admit this is the first time I've ever used the "Follow my delivery live" option on the UPS site, lol.

                                I can tell you from personal experience, that's the way to madness. Particularly if your driver, like ours, gets to within a few blocks of your house in the morning, makes a turn and swings around to the rest of the neighborhood, circles back and sits for a while... and then finally delivers in late evening. Not that I would waste my time watching the map or anything.
