    I keep coming back to the Empire Builder, but the ID also appeals. I would like to see a video of the Empire Builder, perhaps contrasting it with the ID?

    Excellent newsletter, and great videos.

    Thanks for all the wonderful work and great products!

          I love my Small Cafe Bag so I'd love to see a demo on how to keep it sparkling clean. I use my Cafe Bag as a purse and it really keeps my 'necessary' items down to the essentials. "Siquid mantica non capit, domi relinquendum est, " don't ya know... And I'm ordering the new Ultrasuede Shoulder Strap Wrap because I love accessories and that's a smart one.

          If you live in Seattle and use an ORCA card for the public transportation system, the Mini Clear Organizer Wallet is great; it snaps onto the key ring and can't get lost.

          I know I'm new but I say let Maverick vote!

                I selected the packing cubes. I borrowed a bag from my mother for my trip here to the UK and it survived ... well, it survived. Zip pulls broke off as well as the compression buckles inside the case. I definitely want to buy a Tri-Star or Aeronaut for my next trip (especially since I doubt I'll be bringing back so much, but if I do, I'll mail it). I'd also love to see something on how to best utilize your Tom Bihn bags for an overseas trip.

                I will say this - and I'll get my fiancé to snap a photo - I looked pretty awesome wearing my ID and Small Café Bag criss-crossed my chest when going through the airport. And the load wasn't bad at all.

                  My second preference

                  I voted for a tour of the Empire Builder but I'd also really love to see maverick pack a suit in the Aeronaut. My Aeronaut arrived Monday. It's an impressive bag. I leave with it Thursday but without a suit. I just assumed that if I need to pack a suit another bag would be more suitable .

                  Maverick's videos are great! I love them.

                  PS I am traveling with the Aeronaut and the large cafe bag that will have the things in it I want to have handy on the flight.

                  BTW, does Tom Bihn make anything that works well as a dop kit for a gym bag?

                      Can never seem to pack a suit correctly - roll the trousers? fold jacket inside out? so would like to see a suggestion.

                      Great initiative by the way!

                        Maverick has a video posted in which he's demonstrating the Ego messenger bag with a Brain Cell included, as well as some pouches and other items. He mentions another video about the Q-AM strap, but there's never a link to such a video. In the Ego video, he seems to be saying that he's going to make one, but I never found it.

                          Video Troubles

                          I can only get the audio to play in either Firefox or IE. Any tips?

                          I have my order in for the Ultrasuede Shoulder Strap Wrap. I currently use a strapeez wrapped around the strap but inside the rubber pad on my Medium Cafe Bag to keep it from slipping around. It works great, but the side nubs are harsh on my hands particularly when my skin is dry. I will post a pic in a separate thread.

                          I would really like to see more on the Empire Builder as that is shaping up to be my next purchase. I'd really like to get that and a TriStar but i think I will have to wait until March for my TriStar.

                          So, when I ordered my Shoulder Strap I just had to get another Medium Clear Pouch so it wouldn't be lonely in the shipping box.

                          Anyone have any tips on viewing the video? I would really like to see it.

                            hi ex machina,

                            i don't know windows that well, but my initial guess would be to check which version of quicktime you have installed on your computer. it should play fine if you have the latest version of quicktime installed. you can download quicktime here.

                              I repaired, then I uninstalled and re-installed Quicktime. No luck. I googled my trouble and I'm not alone. It seems to be a problem with people who run XP. I think the latest XP update may be part of the problem. According to the stuff I googled, an older version of Quicktime works fine, the newer version is audio, no video for people using XP. I have tested my quicktime on Quicktime/Apple's test page and my stuff shows as all working fine.

                              I'm not a tech. This is about as much as I can do short of buying a new PC (or building one.) Why do they always make it so hard to keep stuff, and force you to upgrade? Greedy. I take solace in my durable, beautiful, timeless Tom Bihn bags. Now there's quality that will last!
