    Mail day goodies including a beautiful fjord PCSB and 3DOC, and the TOTALLY amazing S19 in original halcyon which I really didn't think I needed but wanted so bad. Having owned it for less than a day I realise how wrong I was: I desperately needed a bag this size.

      Even though I live on a little island 12970km (8059 miles) away from Seattle, I've had a number of wild bag sightings since 2017, including:
      Burnt Orange Synpase 25
      Black Halcyon Synapse 19
      Original Halcyon Smart Alec
      Nebulous Grey Guide's Edition Synik 22
      Black Synapse 25
      Nebulous Grey/Island Halcyon Synik 22
      Grey Synapse 19
      Green Grab Bag carried as a shoulder bag
      A family of TB bags: Adult had a Deep Blue (or Navy Parapack) Synik 22 while the kids had a Black Ballistic Zeitgeist and a Red Blend (or Mars Red) Paradigm

      That's 9 (!) separate wild bag sightings if anyone's counting
      Night Walk Synik 22, Night Walk Daylight Backpack, everything Acuity and Fjord

        Does anyone else -- particularly those with a Smart Alec that has the new Sangria interior -- feel that there's a bit of a creepy "Feed me, Seymour" vibe here?

          bchaplin I know you're very particular about colors and tones, so I hope you're able to vibe with your Sangria lined SA. Red is a color that is very blurry to my naked eye, so I stay far, far away from it.
          Long live Burnt Orange! Zest! 152!

            I have this one, too. I love Ursa, hoping I can get used to the Sangria lining.

              Oh, I think I like the Sangria, though my first choice would have been Moab. I thought it was funny that the Smart Alec looked as if it had a mouth.

              I am looking forward to traveling with it in July.

                If you feed it contrasting color Tom Bihn accessories, it will probably look a little less like the mouth of a carnivorous singing plant. Probably.
                I own a LOT of Tom Bihn bags, but here are the ones I use most often:
                Everyday Carry: CP or SK
                Overnight Travel: SN22 and SZTSB
                Car Travel: Medium YD and MT
                Plane Travel: CP and WF

                  I'm sure you are thrilled to learn that a Small Ghost Whale Organizer Pouch can hold 6 LSH 14 batteries (and a Mini can hold 4).

                    TFW when you come back from the market, your Pick-up Truck loaded with produce - and you realise you forgot to buy eggs. So you grab the nearest available Grab Bag and head out again ...

                      The Paradigm and my large shepherd’s wool cloth came on a rare daytime movie date with my Husband and me (We saw Mrs Harris Goes to Paris)!

                        Visited my friend for a long weekend with my small Yeoman duffel and one of her cats decided it made a good place to settle down for a nap.

                          Wow, it's been just over a year since I received the S30 GE, and it has been serving as my office-on-the-go, everyday, walking and travel bag. I guess I can offer no greater compliment than to say I have not been looking for another bag (much) - it's just perfect for my use case and so well built - no loose thread or worn fabric!

                            The Night Walk/Northwest Sky Paradigm and its human in their natural habitat. Yes, the Paradigm needs a coffee too because it’s a Monday morning.

                              Here is a new photo of the latest Kindle Paperwhite fitting in the Small Café Bag. I've posted other new photos of the bag in my one-year review here:

                                Challenge: Pack all of this into as few bags as possible.
