    re : the shopping bag.

    please, redesign the 2 bottle pockets that are on the inside the bag, to be on the outside of the shopping bag. i proudly use my steel iberian shopping bag but i always have the bag inside out so that i can have the two inside pockets on the outside. the two pockets on the outside are perfect for plastic cases of blue berries for instance or cheese. the pockets being on the outside also do not take up the space of the main compartment whereas if they are on the inside they do.

      A Synapse that is 50% larger - call it the Spark! Available in both Dyneema and Cordura. I love my Synapse, but find it too small for EDC use.

        Updated note to really emphasize the tabbed dividers, because I just discovered that the pretty ones I got from Russell and Hazel don't fit in my lovely new FJN, because they're too wide (6.5"). I'll have to break out the paper trimmer and hole punch and cut them down to size.

          Does it not work for you to turn it inside out?

          I am not certain why you would need to buy another bag altogether if you have the bag you need in front of you?

            to all the little & swift photo offers thank you! I'm 5'1 on a good day.

            I didn't get a chance to take my photos today... it's quite dark and wintery here in the NYC metro area and i was dressed -- as is typical -- all in black, which matches my co-pilot.

            I also have a wish item for more rings inside the main compartment of the co-pilot (not just in the side pockets) and I still wish the interior of the two sides (pencil side & fleece side) were swapped since i'm right-hand dominant..

            I also hope there is more pushing of the absolute strap. I love mine and it was totally worth it.

              I second that, right now, on the market there are no really good looking and durable accessories for Junior size organizers which can be used in the FJN without being tweaked or look out of place.


              A couple of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) leaves used with the new Post it tabs would make ok D.I.Y dividers.


              The high-density polyethylene (HDPE) leaf is a great find, the size, 3 holes format choice of the FJN and the eco-friendly Gray's Harbor and Crane papers are really fabulous.


              I would love it if there could be page markers made like the ruler, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) leaves in different colors and a punch especially made for the FJN.

              I was just thinking that either the high-density polyethylene (HDPE) leaf could be covered in Dyneema, if people want solid divider or dividers could be made of Dyneema.

              I also think that Dyneema Pouches made to fit the FJN would be great!

              Dyneema is available in 4 colors with more coming so it

                        I love how the style of the tropical design matches the Matterhorn's.

                        The Matterhorn is a great example of an alpine meadow, I would love to see more logo designs showing different ecosystems such as temperate rain forests, arctic, tundra, savanna...

                        Parks and Heritage sites could be the inspiration.

                        The most popular designs could be made into more luggage tags.


                        PS: Since the tropical design is -not- a Tom Bihn design it might be nice to add "inspired by Tom Bihn original design" to avoid any confusion.
                        Just a thought, I am not in the design business.

                          I just added two photos (the cat insisted on being in one of them) to the tom bihn bags group on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/ I hope it helps! I specifically changed when i returned home from the office so as to provide contrast to my bag. :P

                                1) A lunchbox built to Tom Bihn standards would be great;
                                and
                                2) A money belt that doesn't fall apart after a few weeks. I'm on my third since 2008.

                                Keep up the good work!
