    My new ID

    Hi All,

    I thought you might like to see a change that I make to my Tom Bihns. I like to color coordinate the zipper pulls to match the color of the bag.

    This bag is Black/black/cayenne so I found some black and red nylon cord boot/shoe laces and used them to make new zipper pulls. You can use any nylon round cord that is 1/8" or 3/32" diameter. Just take the originals apart and use the black cord as a guide for the length. Use a lighter to melt the ends of the cut pieces so they won't fray.

    There are dozens of colors of this cord on the web. Just search "boot laces" or "nylon cord".

    Just adds a little color and makes it easier to see the zippers when there is low light in the room

      Hi Scott,
      For a further bit of color coordination with your Black/Black/Cayenne ID bag, you might consider getting a medium size organizer pouch in Cayenne ultrasuede. These medium size Ultrasuede organizer pouches are listed under the Sleeves for Amazon Kindle, so tend to be overlooked. I have both the Leaf Green (now not available) and Cayenne ultrasuede pouches, and the Cayenne goes beautifully against black.
      I suggested that this would make a great color to use for the ultrasuede lined cell phone pockets of the ID when this first came out, but if you read Darcy's reply just below my post, she said that everyone was pretty much OK with using black, instead. I'm glad they adopted a different color (not black) for the ultrasuede cell phone pocket in the right side pocket of the Synapse.
