    Hi friends,

    I just recently discovered TB and got my first order in yesterday. I’m so impressed with the quality and materials that I wanted to share some photos and initial thoughts. I’ve included a few common items in each photo so there’s some context for size.

    In today’s post we have:

    Grab Bag - in Blue Parapack
    Packing Cube Shoulder Bag - in Coyote
    Cubelet - in Tidal Halcyon
    Super Mini Ghost Whale Pouch - in Mars Red ballistic


    First up, the Super Mini Ghost Whale Pouch. Not exactly sure what I'll do with it, but for now I've got it stuffed with 12 cards.

    SuperMini-Ghost-Whale-Mars-Red
    SuperMiniGhostWhale-mars-red-ballistic
    Super-Mini-Ghost-Whale-12-cards


    Next is the Cubelet. I am so glad I chose the Tidal halcyon - it is the most beautiful fabric I've ever seen. Now that I've experienced it first hand I wish I could get every Tom Bihn product in Tidal.

    Cubelet


    The Grab Bag in Blue Parapack is pretty nice too. Photographs don't really do it justice - to the naked eye it's a very charming color.

    Lastly, we have the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag in Coyote 210 ballistic. This one is also difficult to photograph, but in the right light it's a fantastic color too.

    And for comparison, here they are all together:

    Continuing the theme of power bricks in Tom Bihn pouches, here's a Cubelet, a Mini Ghost Whale, and a Super Mini Ghost Whale:

    The Cubelet can hold the power supply for my work laptop, including the huge German "Schuko" wall plug.

    This older Apple power supply fits into a Mini GW, if you thread the cable through the prongs.

    And finally, this old 5V power supply isn't really up to par with the power hungry devices we all use these days, but since it fits into a Super Mini GW, it's great for emergencies.

    A new friend for my favorite TB bag (my Taiga Paragon) just arrived a few minutes ago.

    I love the Nightwalk so much, and am excited to give this bag a try.

    Last time I gave this evening course, everything fit into my trusty DLBC and a Grab Bag. This time I had to use the Paradigm instead of the Grab Bag. But I'm not sure why it was so much more stuff to carry :eek:

    During the pre-order, I ordered knitting tool pouches, a full set in Constellation. Not sure if I'll use them all, but figured I'd get them now since they won't be stocked normally.

    I also ordered an extra Size 4 in Cloud to use for jewelry when traveling.
    The amazing & gracious moriond had previously given me one of the single Pouchkins, which I use for small stud/hoop earrings, so I figured the square Size 4 KTP would be good for bracelets or necklaces.
    I loaded a bunch of bracelets in to see how it looks, I think it'll work just fine.
    For the larger bead earrings that I make, I use small rigid cases that snap closed, from Kikkerland.

    All my stuff is out of storage, so time to switch up some of the bags I've been using.
    The Moveable Feast in Navy joined the Taiga/Taiga Paragon that's been a great flexible workhorse the last several months.

    It's written in the description... But it's easy to miss, so nice to have the photo

    "we added a drain grommet at the bottom for that use. "

    Introducing: The Small Pen Charmer.

    Planning ahead for when it's possible again to have in-person workshops, and the participants need lots of pens.

    I picked a bright colour (Orange-152) so that I can easily find it again in what I expect to be a somewhat messy room at the end of the workshop :cool:

    I didn't getget the mini clear organizer pouch for my D&D dice; but they fit nicely. (These are the mini ones that pop up in gaming stores from time to time, I think there's three or four sets of "normal" D&D dice, and two or three sets of d10s left from my Vampire: The Masquerade days.)
