    Does this shot count as animal testing?!

    Now I don't know Finley, but I bet if those bags were flat, Finley wouldn't hesitate to curl up and fall asleep. Or curl up inside. In fact Finley may not want to *stop* testing!

    Hey now, we don't condone animal testing here at TOM BIHN! And at the very least, I hope no one produces a video of this.

    I've been carrying my cordura bags for a few years now while wearing all kinds of fabrics (including wool) and haven't had any problems!

    Ultrasuede, while soft and cozy, is a lint magnet.

    Soft, very stylish and thus all fabric proof and, still, animal friendly.

    Too late for me; I can't justify buying a new Cafe Bag now that I've got the Synapse.

    Yup: cordura is far rougher on clothes than Ballistic nylon. No matter what folks say, it will create problems with wool, certain kinds of stretch cotton clothes etc., They are not meant to be carried that much with finer or delicate clothes I feel; for those, leather is the best. And then you do pay the price for finer made leather goods--that don't weigh a tank!

    Cordura + Wool Coat = Fuzzy Mess

    Hi all,
    This is my first winter carrying Tom Bihn bags. While my EDC is my Ballistic Imago, which I looooove, I carry a Cafe Bag on the weekends. This weekend I discovered that Cordura and wool coats don't mix. I was annoyed by the constant fuzziness of my Cafe Bag, because the Cafe Bag seemed to attract the wool fibers like a magnet. Will carry Cafe Bag only when wearing non-wool coats and jackets.

    Wonder if Tom Bihn could produce a Ballistic Cafe Bag, along with the previously requested Cafe Bag Organizer Inserts?
Working...
