ID:	330632 Thank you, G42!

    That was my first post and I obviously mucked it up as the text for the pic didn’t make it through. The photo was my pre-order which happily arrived today — just in time to add color to my Easter weekend! They’ll make such good gifts —and, of course, add to my own overflowing collection of Bihn bags! Such a happy (though expensive) addiction!
    Happy Easter everyone!! :)
    This version of vBulletin Forums is new to us all - and the way we upload and display photos has changed and we're all still figuring it out, so don't worry. We're working on a tutorial of tips & tricks for it. Your photo was there, just as an attachment, not in line - I edited your last post to insert a medium size version inline.

    It is indeed a happy (and expensive) addiction, but as you noted, they make great gifts and last a very very long time. I feel comfortable having more than I truly need because I can always move them on to a new owner by gifting, trading, or reselling and the styles are fairly classic & timeless. In the meantime, I like to cycle through different bags and colours as the mood strikes me.

    I just re-acquired a Large Cafe Bag…sigh… how I love and how I had missed this bag. It has perfect proportions of flop and structure; it moves with me; holds exactly what I need in a Goldilocks kind of way… And I had a Q/AM still acting as an Ego attachment (heee…) which got moved to this bag. It’s a wee bit retro and yet totally satisfying.

    Go Navy, Both G42 and Wanderlust77 are correct that you have the Deep Blue/Canyon combination for your Cafe Bag. That was first shown in tpnl’s 06-27-2017 thread All These New Fabrics - My Synapses Are Firing Like Crazy - What To Choose !?! where he also showed this new color combination for the Synapse 19 in addition to the Cafe Bag. I’ll only except one of the many pictures — since this was the first time we were posting about the new 525d Ballistic Nylon colors and materials, there were a lot of comparison shots with other bags and colors so that people could judge the difference between Navy.1050d Ballistic and Deep Blue 525d Ballistic, for example.


    Left: Deep Blue SCB; Canyon Interior / Dawn Shop Bag / Grass Cubelet
    Right: Navy Ristretto; Solar Interior / Nordic Pouch / French Blue FJN / Island Small Shop Bag / Grass Cubelet
    G42, I liked your Olive/Canyon Luminary color combination. They also had the Cafe Bag and Daylight Backpack in those colors, as well as the Side Effect.

    The new Constellation blue is really great looking; I'm very pleased!

    That Constellation is beautiful! I may gave to get one of those! (I do believe that is the Deep Blue/Canyon; I bought one for my husband.)

    I love all the blues and really liked Canyon, I'm sorry it didn't stick around very long. I have the original Luminary (12) in Olive/Canyon :)

    Two photos of the inside of the main compartment of the Medium Cafe Bag, which is one of Bihn's oldest products although changed/improved over the years. Note the three O-rings; a 4th is in a front zippered compartment (not pictured)

    Don’t know if this would ever be helpful for people trying to visualize sizes…this is inside my S19…Against the back and side: an upright PCSB used as an organizer to corral a textbook, 3 A5 notebooks, and one notebook the size of an index card. Next to it, a coffee bearing Yeti. In front of both is an Acuity HLT2. The HLT 2 does not fit in the bottom pocket of the S19, but I was happy to see that it nestles in quite, erm…handily…in front of the other items. There remains plenty of room for other more squishable items on top…hat, mitts, etc. as well as the random “I need an onion for the soup tonight (tomato-coconut-lentil curry) and a root beer sounds good…”

    No kitten can resist the lure of the Solaris large shop bag, particularly when I am getting ready to load it with items!

    I finally got a bit more mask organized. Pictured in the photo are versions 1, 2, 3, and 4 from left to right. Plus a couple miscellaneous other brands.

    Its possible it was caught in the machinery at USPS and this is how they reworked it... It may also have been delivered to the wrong address who ripped it open, realized their mistake and gave it back to USPS who retagged it - that shipping label looks different than usual.
    Either way, happy you have your bag intact.
    I second G2 statement, in 14 years of Tom Bihn shipments in 4 states, my boxes were always intact, except the last two with a tiny pucture that produced a small tear in the back of the boxes. They were sent UPS, but no matter the shipper, the automatic sorting machines, everywhere are at, or over capacity, this season.

    The holidays gifting is mostly mailed and every needs are also fulfilled by buying online.


    My Tom Bihn smaller boxes are used to store items that I need handy but out of the way.
