    This is a lousy photo but I don't have my good camera right now. Sorry!



    It's an old-style Stuff Sack with a fabric bottom and the closed yarn guide. I am in love! Sapphire is more of a royal blue in person, not the overbright go-team blue that shows in this lousy picture. But I can assure you it is real!

    Dear eBay,

    Thank you. Really, THANK YOU. Because of my letter, I now own a wonderful set of Indigo travel bags and even a piece of the elusive Sapphire Dyneema. This forum is a wonderful place for so many reasons, and the friendliness and generosity of the forum members is at the top of that list.

    All but one of my new blue lovelies are used, but they all look new. Even the bags that I know were carried often still look great. The quality and durability of Tom Bihn products is amazing. I know that I'll get many years of good service from my Indigo collection and other Tom Bihn bags.

    Your pal,
    Janine

    ps. An Indigo/Solar Co-Pilot would be kinda cool. Just sayin'.

    Katy may have hooked him. I bought him an absolute strap from someone on Ravelry. When it arrived it had none of the hardware to hook it to his bag. He called yesterday and got Katy. He explained the situation and she told him they'd send it out. He got off the phone totally stunned. Great bags and great customer service. My next order is just waiting on the money and final decisions on the little stuff.

    Add me to the list of wives not wanting their husbands to realize the full extent of their VAST and ever-increasing TB collection!

    LOL..I know exactly what you mean about not wanting the hubby to realize how much TB you have. That's why I send some of my shipments to my mom's house as well

    It will clean fine - just a bit of dust and crap such as small fragments of paper inside, not stains or smells or anything.

    I don't know if I want to put the TB collection together in one place... I don't think my husband quite realises how much of it there is and I think it is better that he doesn't find out!

    Lets see - the big stuff:

    Synapse: Kelly/Steel (spare), Indigo/Solar (my EDC), Navy/Solar (my husband's EDC)
    Smart Alec: Steel. (Traded this for the surplus Dyneema Synapse with a lovely forum member in Sydney.)
    Brain Bag: Sapphire. (My husband's - for travel)
    Tristar: Indigo/Solar. (My travel bag)
    Zephyr: Steel/Wasabi (mine), Black/Wasabi (my husband's)
    Empire Builder: Black/Sapphire
    Utility Tote: about 9 of them, in different colours. Used for shopping, and colours used to prevent cross-contamination. Crimson=raw meat, Black=soap, laundry liquids etc. that you don't want near food, etc. Also used as colour swatches. :+>
    Large Shop Bag: about 6-8 of them, in Solar, Iberian and UV.
    Little Swift: 2 x Kiwi, and Forest and Cardinal.
    Field Journal: Conifer

    And of course millions of pouches, stuff sacks, packing cubes, several Kits, etc.

    Not to forget a drawer full of Absolute Straps - they're fantastic!

    Not quite as clean as I'd like it to be, but that's easily fixed.

    Came with an Absolute Strap as well, which I wasn't expecting!

    Anyway, will come in handy I think for transporting part of my library around.

    You got the Sapphire lining you were hoping for, which sounds beautiful: and the Absolute Strap is a wonderful bonus. Just hope you're able to clean it up—and then maybe some pictures?

    Yea I've been definitely checking eBay a lot lately. That was where I won my Ristretto for iPad--(which subsequently convinced me to get my Ristretto for 13" macbook air.)

    Oh, wow, the same seller had an Empire Builder, and he's located in Sydney so the shipping isn't too silly!

    It has a "blue" lining. I'm hoping for Sapphire!

    Tom Bihn black Aeronaught cabin bag carry on near new - eBay (item 300586738808 end time Aug-09-11 11:14:39 PDT)

    Saw this pop up yesterday am. Showed it to my friend and it took a few seconds, but purchased it almost as fast as it was posted.

    Will get to see it when it arrives...will see if its the real deal. BTW, I would have grabbed it, even though I am perfectly fine with my Tri-star.
    I saw this on my daily browse and when I refreshed to see deets it was gone, great steal for your friend!
