    That is an awesome bag!

    Does TB have a museum of all things TomBihn? At least a sample of every item ever made?

    If not, we should start one. Dedicate a corner of TB's factory for display area. Rotate the display by various themes.

    I better stop -

    Love the wit!

    Reminds me of years ago there was a then small paper product company called "Recycled Paper Products". (They had the "Hippo Birdie two Ewes" Boynton cards.) They had a card with a little bird carrying a huge rose and inside the caption read "This Bud's for you." Budweiser Brewing company threatened to sue them for copyright infringement, or something like that, and they had to stop making that card. I thought it was interesting. (Think this was 1982?) Can you sue someone for being witty?

    HI Katy,
    If you have time to move them it'd be great. I'm dying to see if someone can identify the bag. I really appreciate you putting up all the pictures for me.
    Take care,
    Moose

It looked sort of like a Syanpse without the side pockets and a flap over the top. It was a plum like color. I was going to talk to the gentleman carrying it but would have had to interupt his conversation. That would be rude so I decided stalking was better. I've sent Katy a photo in hopes she'll be able to put it up for me. I know someone will be able to identify the bag. Oh, and if you were the one carrying the bag, I'm harmless, really.
    Take care,
    Moose
    Oops! I put both photos in your other thread . Do you want them here too? I assume that would be easier.

    Definitely wasn't the ID. Empire Builder? Zephyr? You can kinda see the wear on the zipper pulls and such where the black is wearing off. Well, you can't see it cuz my connection is severely suckeh. I'll email it to Katy ... standby ...

    I said, "Nice Tom Bihn bag. I'm a fan, too," (gesturing to my Brain Bag and Aeronaut, not mentioning the Synapse and a silly number of organizer pouches and such inside). I figured the tour from Tom and pretty much hanging out with you guys at most of the store openings might be a little much. And I hadn't slept all night and it was 0430 my time. Better to keep my mouth shut! haha

    Whoa, the Synapse was where?

He said it was starting to get a little worn after about seven years of heavy use. Very exciting to finally seen one "in the wild."
