    While on a trip to the Quebec City Winter Festival a couple of years ago, I discovered a member of our group was carrying Bihn. I pointed out my Aeronaut, and we naturally became pals.

    I love this thread!

    SF is such a "bag culture" I saw tons of cool ones while here.

    While at Macworld I spotted a Green Synapse and a Ristretto.

    My first sighting!

    Got on the bus yesterday morning behind a guy carrying a SuperEgo (black/steel/reflective). He had that sucker absolutely bulging!

    And another Tom Bihn sighting! This time at the AirSpace lounge at BWI. I sat down and the woman next to me said "Tom Bihn" and showed me her Ego. When looking at my bags, she told her friend "Wow, a real fan--three bags [SCB, Zephyr, and Western Flyer]".

    This isn't a bag sighting, but the UPS delivery person had a Tom Bihn box for the next delivery stop today. I was excited even though I didn't know who the recipient is!

    Today I saw a guy on the bus who was carrying an Empire Builder. My Smart Alec was not displayed prominently; had it been, I am sure we would have exchanged the Tom Bihn Head Nod.* It was even cooler because he was wearing barefoot shoes.

    *you know, the head nod you do with other people who are totally in the know.

    I think it still counts!

    I'm not entirely sure if this counts as "in the wild". Last week on a visit to Philadelphia, I met up with an old friend I'd never seen before (we've known each other for about 15 years online). When we met at a cafe on 11th and Locust, I was carrying a navy/cayenne MCB and she had a turquoise LCB.

    However, I have to confess that we'd previously discussed ownership of TB bags on the Ravelry forum, so it wasn't quite the surprise it might have been!

    Today was only the second time I've seen a Tom Bihn here in Australia (other than mine). It was a black Co-Pilot and I was excited to see it as I finally was able to get a sense of its size.

    There are now only two things now stopping me from getting one to replace my MCB: I don't have enough spare cash lying around and I'm worried I'll miss the ability to reach behind my back, unclip the buckle and reach in to take my wallet out without swing the bag around to my front. I'd love the extra organisation though.

    Might be time to put my iPad Ristretto on eBay to partially fund a Co-Pilot.

    Cafe bag sighting at a conference in Alaska. Looked like a medium size Cocoa/Wasabi combination (but wasn't close enough to check that interior color was Wasabi; know that Cocoa/Cayenne was also available -- just projecting my love for the Cocoa/Wasabi combination of my Imago!). No opportunity to exchange comments at the time, and I was carrying my Little Swift in Hemp.

    I had a sighting in the wild a couple of weeks ago. I was getting some coffee at my company's coffee shop and this guy (a visitor) came up to me and said "You have a Tom Bihn bag! This is the first time I've seen someone else with one." I was wearing my conifer Small Cafe Bag and he had a black Smart Alec. We chatted about Tom Bihn bags for a bit and then went on our separate ways.

    She was referring to this post. Today I wrote another one about our upcoming trip (two more sleeps!)

    I was at a knitting store with some friends here in Toronto yesterday when these two ladies approached me, having sighted my Side Effect and my Smart Alec and said "you have a Tom Bihn bag!! where did you get them?" I said "from Tom Bihn!" and immediately pulled out my FOT They both had Swifts (one might have had a small swift) and Cafe bags. One of them was from out of town and proudly proclaimed she was traveling with an Aeronaut for 7 weeks and we exchanged our packing tips. I showed them the pictures on my blog and she exclaimed she had been to my blog! and asked me for my picture. She is supposed to send the pictures were took to me and when she does I'll post them here. It was surreal and my friends were puzzled by the whole thing. I felt like a celebrity!
