    Brain Bag and Two Brain Cells !

    Hello everyone - and greetings from the United Kingdom! I read a lot of rave reviews about Tom Bihn bags, but couldn't find a stockist here i the UK. So - I thought long and hard and took the plunge. I bought:
    A Brain Bag
    A Brain Cell (size 1)
    A Brain Cell (size 6T)
    A Snake Charmer
    A Freudian Slip
    They arrived today. Ordered on monday and delivered on Friday - not too bad at all!

    I had to pay the VAT on my bags but it was reasonable and the box was mine. I can only say that I am overjoyed with my purchase. The Brain Bag is rugged as are the brain cells. I set about fitting both brain cells into the two major compartments. The size 1 fitted perfectly into the back compartment. I changed the clips to the lower level in the front compartment and placed the second Brain Cell into it. It fitted like a glove. Whilst my Macbook Air 11" is a little small, it fits really nicely into the brain cell. My Macbook Pro 17" fits perfectly into the size 1.

    I then found that the space on top of the front pocket was a perfect spot for the snake charmer. I could also fit the freudian slip into the rear compartment without adjusting the outside straps.

    There is also run for my trusty A5 Filofax which I carry around with me all the time.

    I am working all over the place in the next few weeks and this will prove invaluable - both in the car and on the London Underground.

    Thank you to Tom Bihn - I somehow think that there may be some more purchases on the way. :)


    Congrats on the new bags and welcome here.
    I have 3 Brain Bags and seeing your pics makes me want a new one?

    I am sure you can stop anytime though!



      Welcome, @paulhogden!

      Enjoy your new bag and let us know your packing lists. We love to know what everyone else is carrying. :-)
      Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.


        I'll do that in the morning. 10pm here.... off to bed to dream about all things Bihn.


          Congrats Paul! Good to have you here!


            @AVservice - anytime, I can stop anytime. Ooooh look they do it in Steel and Wasabi. Stop it!

            @ Janine - I will give you a full inventory once I have sprayed the brain bag with Nikwax. I've prmused myself I'd do that. Then more photos - I promise

            @jeffmac Good to be here!
