    Quality, Quality, Quality

    I have just returned to work after a lay off of close to a year. My new job offers a lot of flexibility including the opportunity to telecommute. To do this, I had to purchase a PC as office connections/software did not work well with Mac.

    Well, needless to say, the budget is a bit tight right now and so I was not able to purchase a Tom Bihn bag for the new PC. I tried my Ego but it was a tight fit (PC is 15.2 - 16 in) I ended up with something called a Golla bag and to be honest, it will do for now but it seriously lacks the quality and craftsmanship of a Bihn bag. I knew we were spoiled with Tom's high standards and it seems other companies have no standards. The Golla bag is thin nylon, a barely padded computer section but better than nothing, seams are not reinforced -- the list goes on -- I don't imagine it be long for this world!

    In the mean time, saving for that new Bihn bag!!!!!! Oh the excitement is building!

      Congratulations indeed!

      What kind of job is it? Telecommuting is the way of the future.


      Since your post title is Quality, Quality, Quality, I think it is good to remind people that the Cache is only $30 and fits a variety of electronic devices including laptops.

            Oh and BTW, the quality of my Aeronaut is just keeping me giddy. I use it daily as my main clothing repository. Essentially its a wardrobe. What a pleasure.
