    A Ristretto in Rome...to stay

    Hi all,
    First post to celebrate my first Tom Bihn bag: a Ristretto for iPad in black/steel.

    It arrived in Rome few days ago and I'm extremely happy with it.
    I was expecting steel to be clearer though.

    Anyway,
    I want to thank you all, here on the forum. You (and your passion) convinced me, after wandering the site and forum for few weeks, to "surrender" and get the ristretto. To be honest I don't even remember how or where I heard about TB in the first place. But I'm happy I somehow did.

    If only I had known last year when I did a tour of NW and spent one week in Seattle...

    Now, I realized pretty soon I got wrong assortment of organizer pouches, I should have ordered at least 1 small padded and 1 for pen and pencil. I'll be soon forced to place another order...

    I'll try to take some pictures of the ristretto in front of the colosseum soon.

    See you around.

    Welcome, Franco! I'm happy to hear you are enjoying your Ristretto and look forward to seeing those pictures!

      Let me say welcome, too, Franco. And don't worry about ordering the "wrong" assortment of organizer pouches, since you'll soon be looking for excuses to make another order....and another, and another.

        I'm waiting for someone to volunteer to take some to Rome for him. ;-)

              Just a week earlier and you'd have had a wonderful early autumn weather around here...
              We entered winter just a couple of days ago with temperatures ranging from low 10s and below 10 Centigrades.

              Hope you have a great time here.

              By the way I temporarily resolved my lack-of-the-right-assortment-of-organizer-pouches by placing a new order. Official excuse is: I really need a new backpack. Synapse is coming...together with full assortment of accessories.

                Actually I wanted to tell you a different story when I logged to the forum today.

                Today I have been under heavy rain for about two hours. No umbrella, no nothing.
                You know what? The only things that were not completely wet, and I mean it literally, when I finally got home were those stored in my Ristretto. iPad included.

                Fantastic.

                That's when I decided to stop waiting and order a Synapse.

                  I love my Synapse in black/ultraviolet. Thankfully, I have only been caught in drizzles, not rain. Of course, the Synapse easily shed off the drizzle. Numerous times.

                    Oh, I also meant to add - hope you included stuff sacks in your order. I use them to wrap my camera, lunch, etc.

                    And you have to have at least one shop bag .

                    Enjoy your bags, Franco!
