    Well....

    Ok, to be honest at first blush this is the first TB bag I don't really like the look of. The square flat flap and square pocket on the cylindrical bag just doesn't do it for me. I like the pocket in the flap and all, but the whole thing kinda bothers me.
    I am sure it is functional and works with the drawstring, but a larger flap or different shape would make it more cohesive.

    I do respect the fact that all the designs are always fresh and new.

    Darcy you are in the best place to ask for a Dyneema Cafe Bag and great idea by the way.

    I'd bite on a dyneema cafe bag. That would be funky.

    thanks,

    Jeez, I wish Maverick would learn to show some emotion and get excited about things. So wishy-washy, ya know?

    Enjoy your newest Bihn score, Mav!

    [QUOTE=dsg29;4627][QUOTE=maverick;4607]In an unprecedented move, I have ordered a Tom Bihn bag that has not a sliver of Crimson in it!

    Gasp!! I don't think I could contemplate my owning a non-RED (insert anti-Crimson rant here) Tom Bihn item. It would disrupt my world, methinks. Nevertheless, very cool-looking bag. I'm now working on a good rationale for a Ruck's Sac before I place my order....
    I thought that sapphire would be a nice color for my son's first backpack, and I also was feeling a bit adventurous.

    My niece's birthday is coming up - she's turning 10 - and I wanted to get her a Ruck's Sac. So I asked her mom if she thought that she might like it. I learned that she's at that age where she is very particular about everything.

    So my Ruck's Sac is coming next week. I'll show it to her and see what she thinks. If she likes it, then I can order for her in the color of her choice. Wish me luck...

    I'm still hoping for a small bag that has a place for my water bottle. In the meantime, it looks like this is my next buy. It may motivate me to get my Buzz to Ebay so I have money to buy the Ruck's Sac.

    Can you post some pictures showing the inner colors and how they look with the outer one?

    In an unprecedented move, I have ordered a Tom Bihn bag that has not a sliver of Crimson in it! I've ordered the Ruck's Sac in saphire/olive.

    I am very excited to get this bag. It will serve right now as a very hip diaper bag. When my son gets older, it will be his first back pack, and his first of many Tom Bihn bags.
