    A Foreword: Upon reflection (and gain of ~7 hours of sleep,) I have realized that my Cache for 13" iPad and Tom Bihn Wallet did not make it into the family collection photograph. I am choosing now to tell you, as opposed to adding another post-script.


    8/17 Updated Collection:



    Lets start the list.
    Tom Bihn Bags/Non-pouch Items
    Black/Steel/Wasabi Super Ego w/Q-AM Strap; Iberian Dyneema Large Shop Bag; 13" Olive/Cayenne Ristretto w/Standard Strap; Olive/Cayenne Ristretto for iPad w/Simple Strap; 6Z Brain Cell; Horizontal Freudian Slip; Snake Charmer

    Pouch Type Tom Bihn Items!
    (From left to right)
    Medium Solar Dyneema; Small Iberian Dyneema; Small Steel Dyneema; Mini Padded; Small Clear/Red Codura; FoJ; FoT; Small Padded; Mini Clear/Steel Codura; Small Solar Dyneema; Medium Clear/Iberian Dyneema; Padded Kindle Pouch.

    6 (how did I get that many >.<) small key chains
    1 Wasabi 16" key chain.


    Tom Bihn = Me ^___________^


    p.s.: Shot with my Nikon d3100 with a 35mm AF-S f/1.8 lens. I only meant to go check out a camera store and see what they had--but then the sales lady let me play with the lenses that they have in store and I finally got to take a picture with a Fish-Eye Lens (too bad it costs like 800 >.<) Anyways, looked at the fixed length lens and well--I held out just about as well as I do for Tom Bihn Products. See above if you have any doubt about how poorly that goes ^.^

    p.s.s. In case anyone was interested in my fish eye experience, please see below. If you are not interested, please feel free to ignore. If you were not interested and you looked anyways I will do one of the following options: 1 - If you liked it even though you weren't interested--thank you for looking; 2 - If you didn't like it and you weren't interested--I apologize for wasting your time.



    p.s.s.s. I just realized that my signature no longer currently reflects my Tom Bihn Collection. At some point I'll go about fixing this. Thank you!

    Addendum: If I lived in/near Seattle, I am most certain that I would be in terrible credit card debt from buying far too much from Tom Bihn. (I know--there is no such thing as too much, right? :-\)

    Well I love your assortment. And Moose looks like a lot of fun.

    And wait a minute, hold the phone, is that other medium Dyneema pouch in Sapphire!!!! Lucky!
    Yup, I got the ID in Jan 2006 and it is Grape/Wasabi. The small Cordura is plum, but I don't know if it's old or new. It's a smidge darker than the picture shows.

    Sapphire! That's what it is. I couldn't remember. The picture makes it look more purplish, but it actually is more of a blue. That was one of the first pouches I got, starting my organizer pouch addiction. :-)

    Fwiw, here at TB, size doesn't matter, it's that you are smart enough to carry the bags because you believe in them and have a system that works for you and your needs/desires, that you love, that's what matters :)

    My collection looks so tiny compared to some of these. I'm going to have to work on that! I'm thinking a Steel/Ultraviolet Aeronaut may be in my future soon...



    I have: a size 4 Brain Cell, a size 4X Brain Cell (because Apple made the 15" MacBook Pro just a smidge bigger than the Powerbook I'd had before), an ID (the older style w/o water bottle pockets), 2 medium Dyneema organizer pouches, 1 medium Cordura organizer pouch, 1 medium padded organizer pouch, 2 small Cordura organizer pouches, and one FoT Blue Suede organizer pouch. Not pictured are my key straps and my 2 luggage tags.

    The Moose hiding out in the pocket of the ID is the World's Most Traveled Moose. He's on Facebook as Moose Snyder. When he's not going on adventures with my friends that pocket in the ID is reserved for him!

    The medium pouches are the PERFECT size for me & hubby's Nooks, and the color of the Ultraviolet Dyneema is an absolutely perfect match to the colors on my skin for my Nook.

    Ahem, I guess if I sit down and think of it, this is probably a stupid exercise, because probably soon, something will be added or changed, but I took another family foto today just for giggles because my previous one is not reflective of how it is at the moment:



    So changes were due to a few factors:
    1. visit to TB
    2. gifts from doornum3 (such a sweetie Joanne and I will be forever grateful)
    3. trade
    4. pif from one of Joanne's previous gifts to another fan who I hope treasures it.

    The end result is a more limited, matchy matchy, color palette that goes with my clothes and makes me smile when I think of it. (basically lots of purple and neutrals with some wasabi, solar and iberian thrown in for flavor and color coordination)
    This is probably the only picture I have taken of dh's Brain Bag, but it is a part of our dear TB family. For scale, this is spread across 1/2 of our King sized bed.

    My bag collection

    I finally got around to taking a photo of my collection. The photo includes everything except for my husband's Indigo Brain Bag and accessories. I wish the photo would show the difference in color between my Sapphire Brain Bag and Indigo Aeronaut better. The colors are quite different in person. I have become a much more organized individual since discovering organizer pouches. Everything gets its own color!

    Every time I see a linen bag I feel that must be the missing link in my TB collection. That fabric seems to change with the light, what's next to it, and possibly other factors, but it generally looks so desirable to me.
    What a great picture, thanks for sharing! Any more bags and you will definitely need a bigger table.

    I think a Black/Cork/Cayenne is a great color combination!

    *Edit..Just realized if I buy a cork strip for my Ego I have this color combination :)

    @ moriond I agree, I think the Imago would look fantastic in the Navy/Cork/Wasabi!! If I'm not mistaken I believe in the Blog section the navy kit's pic was taken sitting on top of some cork fabric & it looks sharp together. I would love to get an Imago in that combination.

    The Kiwi Kit goes really well with both Indigo and, at a guess based on the pictures and color swatch I have, the new Navy.

    Wonderful collection, Gabe! And a great shot of it as well. I especially like your wasabi items... :-D
    Agreed, and by the way, when I requested my navy ballistic color swatch I suggested that a new ballistic Imago combination in Navy/Cork/Wasabi would be great.

    Gabe's pictures should definitely be complimented for showing off the color of Indigo, which seems to be amazingly hard to display well on web pages. I've got both the Indigo Kit shown in his picture, and the Kiwi Kit shown in Doornum3's picture (amid the staggeringly fine collection Swifts!), and I really recommend the Kiwi color combination for use with Indigo and Navy. I usually pack the Kiwi Kit with my Indigo Synapse. The shape of the Kit seems particularly well suited for use with the interior of the Synapse. I also use the 3D Clear organizer cubes with that bag, and yes, I have one in Indigo (and Plum and Steel).

    Dear Doornum3,

    Would you mind sharing pictures of the other dogs? :)

    Kudos to you and hubby for saving so many doggies! :)


    Maybe we should have a dog thread? :)
