    Ditto JLE. This can be as simple as a slightly larger PCSB for me to be happy.

One main compartment large enough to fit a cache and a small number of papers, a few small interior pockets and an open exterior pocket on the back. A small carry handle and attachment points for a shoulder strap.

    2. I second the comment above about an imago-sized bag with a zippered main compartment and no flap

    3. Ditto for a zippered cafe bag.

      It truly is a blessed life, especially when you can work with artists of that caliber. My first love is rock n' roll and the old saying "find a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life" definitely applies. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

      As for pay it ussually directly corresponds with how responsible I am for the 100,000 lbs of lights, speakers and video screens hanging above the heads of fans, rock stars, divas, celebrities, heads of state, multi-national CEOs and Justin Beiber.

        I would like to see a pouch similar to the 3D clear organizer but smaller .. I would like to build a First Aid Kit using something similar.

          Yes, this! How funny, I was just thinking this morning that something like this would be perfect. I'd like it to be available in all three options i.e. clear, mesh and all-dyneema. I'd use a mesh one for tech accessories when I really only need the bare minimum.

            The 3D Organizer Cubes are not that big, they fit into a Small Cafe Bag, They are roughly the size of a Small Pouch but in 3D.

            Either one would make a fine first aid kit.

              I currently use the 3D organizer cube for a first aid kit with a sampling if the usual ingredients. Backpack is right; the cube isn't that large. I've also carried more abbreviated kits in the mini clear OP. When I am facing time out of country, I make a separate allergy kit, for quick retrieval, and also move up the size of my first aid kit to include travel meds.

                  The snake charmer in a color other than black or grey. Olive perhaps?

                    I like your thinking!
                    Water resistant, outside end pocket for a water bottle, specific storage for eye and ear protection, I like the idea of a brass collection sack made of a material that would shed/sift sand and dirt, dual-zipper top, rigid bottom, well padded all around, a modular interior that would allow for custom configuration, molle or hook-and-loop on the interior for accessory attachment, definitely an Absolute Shoulder Strap... I could go on.

                    And yeah, tacti-cool is NOT.

                    A solar interior would do me fine, hard to lose anything against that brightness. But a blaze-orange interior would be nice, too.

                      I would prefer red or blue.

                        I agree ... I have a 3D, but I still would like to see something similar but smaller in size

                          1. +1 on a range bag. I use a ristretto for pistol right now, but have to hang my ear protection on the strap and they get in they way.
                          2. New sling bag, I love my buzz, but it's starting to show it's age.
                          3. Phone pocket that I can hang on any strap. One of my favorite features of the buzz is slotting an mp3 player in the strap pocket.
                          4. Skookum duffles with a TB logo, and black straps. These look like they'd be great gym bags, but I'm a much bigger fan of the TB logo than the dog one, and I don't own a dog.

                            I think if the passport pouch were slightly enlarged to also accommodate the TB wallet, it would be more useful. There should be one 0-ring on the inside near the top.

                              I would love to see the Snake Charmer, the 3D Clear Organizer Cube, and the 3D Mesh Organizer Cube all available in more colors, especially red, yellow, forest-green and blue.

                                I've been checking out some of the backpacks and other luggage items on the Bihn web-site. It seems that there is a limited availability of "ultra-violet" dyneema inner-lining for certain carry bags.

                                For example: I wanted to see if it were possible to order a Synapse with a black 420d exterior and an ultra-violet interior. (I like how the UV lining looks and reflects the ambient light when you're opening up the bag to look for something; this is an aspect I always look for what I view photos and demo-videos of bags; the best interior dyneema linings seem to be solar, ultra-violet and iberian red. The black seems to go well with the ultra-violet, as shown in at least one of the Bihn site's photos of the Synapse 19, but this backpack appears to no longer be available with the ultra-violet interior.)

                                Judging from product photos and older blog photos on the Bihn site, the Aeronaut looks outstanding with these combinations:

                                steel 1050d exterior, ultra-violet interior lining
                                steel 1050 ext., solar int.
                                forest 1050 ext., ultra-violet int.
                                navy 1050d ext., solar int.

                                Some of these combinations are no longer available, though.

                                I wish they were. I noticed that the ultra-violet and solar inner linings are especially potent at improving bag interior visibility. I admit there's also a personal aesthetic factor involved; YMMV.

                                Has Bihn ever produced an Aeronaut with a black 1050d exterior and an ultra-violet dyneema interior? That would be an intriguing color combination to see. I imagine solar dyneema linings would not go well with 1050d black or forest exteriors, though. That would seem to clash, color-wise.
