    I've had a number of total strangers comment stop me to comment on my Tom Bihn bags. I think my favorite example, though, was in the San Francisco airport. I had a multi-hour layover and was nursing a snack and drink when I noticed some guy looking at me. Like he was thinking about starting a conversation.

    Now, I'm a happily married woman, but I have to admit that when I observed him glancing my way a few times, I did find it flattering. And he was, frankly, kind of attractive. Can I admit that it was just a wee bit disappointing when his opening line was, "Excuse me, but isn't that a Tom Bihn Empire Builder?"

    P.S. I wasn't, it was a Zephyr.

    P.P.S. We had a lovely chat for the next hour or so till his plane was called. And no, neither of us asked for contact info!

    I had a similar experience yesterday! We have company visiting from the South and were at the Mall of America ( not my favorite place to be but visitors seem to like to say they have been there!). I had my Synapse with me with all the usual requirements for a day out with a 12 y/o, 6 y/0 twins and a 2 y/o. When we were entering the amusement park area - right by the 15 foot Sponge Bob statue, a man and his wife came running up to yelling "Wait!" ( it's a high energy sort of place

    He asked if my backpack was a Tom Bihn Synapse - I thought my husband was going to be hysterical. When I replied that it was, he insisted that I unload everything so he could try it out. My precious Synapse was unloaded, loaded, inspected, worn and returned to me with a smile, many thanks and the declaration that he would order one that very day in the hopes it would be waiting for him when they returned home from vacation.

    much to my excitement, there was a black horizontal brain cell there! i went and said hello to the proud owner of the bag and we chatted about tom bihn bags.

    it's always exciting when you run into a fellow tom bihn bag user!
