    5 Tom Bihn Bags (2 Aeronauts, 2 MCBs, and 1 Co-Pilot) on a Chinese Adventure

    Hey all!
    So our family came all the way to China to see us over this Christmas holiday. Thanks to TB, our trip was a lot more smoother than it would have been. Here are some pics and vid of our bags and our travels.

    As a Christmas/Birthday/Happy Travels present, we gave my sister-in-law a linen MCB
    to have for her trip to see us. Here are our three bags on the Great Wall.

    I have to give a huge shout out to Katy and everyone at TB. We've ordered several bags that were delivered here in China and they totally helped out. I meant to give a full review of my Co-Pilot, but it can be simply summed up in one word: awesome.
    I use it everyday as my school bag, with papers to grade, my water bottle, my iPad, and a moleskine journal. While on our trip, it carried my water bottle, iPad, camera, money, and moleskine journal, hat, scarf, and gloves, and other travel necessities. It was very helpful and handy.

    In conclusion, here is a video of our trip. I hope you enjoy!

      Can someone help me fix the picsso folks can see them? I put them in following the instructions....


        Hope they can eventually show up, because the video is great and the whole story too! What an adventure!

          is the best I can do. I can't get the jpg link from your flickr sadly, but you can. You have to cut and past it from the HTML/BBcode and insert it into the photo code here. I haven't found posting photos to be the easiest process here. But it's doable.
          I really, really like TB Bags!


            Ok, I fixed the pictures somewhat. The video...well, just click on the link. Enjoy and thanks for the help!


              Great shots! What an adventure, and of course made easier by the TB bags for organization, dependability (the bags - and the crew!), lightness of travel, being prepared, etc.

              A memorable Christmas day for you and the family!

                My husband and I were in China June 2007 to adopt our youngest daughter (Hubei) and again in September 2009 to adopt our youngest son (Yunnan). We LOVE China and hope to return soon....next time with Tom Bihn gear. I just discovered it this time last year and wish we'd had it then.

                  How'd I miss this thread? Such awesome photos. And I love the video. Thanks, teacherman.
                  Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)
