    Cats examine new Aeronauts

    After checking the UPS status 9 times today our new His (steel & solar) and Hers (forest & ultraviolet) Aeronauts just arrived.

    WOW!!! These are beautifully designed and flawlessly fabricated objects. Thank you Tom Bihn Crew!!!

    We loaded the bags with Pendleton blankets and walked around in small circles testing the Absolute strap and the backpack straps. Our initial reaction is that these have got to be the most comfortable carry on sized bags ever made in the history of planet earth - especially when loaded with soft wool blankets and walking barefoot on a nice Persian rug - we could have walked all night.

    Gearing up for my lovely wife's 50th birthday getaway in Tofino B.C. It's still a month away but I'm starting to pack right now just to keep messing around with the Aeronaut(s)

    Cats are examining the bobbin tension on the stitches. They said the stitching looks nice and even on both sides and that there were no dangling threads. They also suggested that a bag of this caliber would be a more dignified manner of transport to the Vet.

    Welcome mfield!

    Such beautiful cats! Obviously intrigued by the new bags, and wondering when Tom will design a cat carrier! (I'm secretly hoping for one too!)

    Cheers!

          I hope this is only the first of many photos you'll take of your new bags!
          Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

          Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

            I love the bags and all the kitties here! I've got to start looking at this forum at home where I can post pics rather than spending my work lunchtime here, where I can't access my photos!

            @mfield - I've heard so much about Tofino, and it sounds like we need to get over there. It's just a short ferry ride from where I live. I'd love to hear about your trip when you return, hopefully with pictures of your adventures!

              I have to link to Maria's post with pictures of Mika inspecting her new Western Flyer. What we really want to see are the follow-up pictures of the cats claiming their bags as in the first picture in this linked post from the http://forums.tombihn.com/tom-bihn-n...html#post17369 thread.

                      They're giving the bags a cat scan.

                      (sorry)

                          Hello jilytibrme, Yes we are spending 4 nights at the Wickaninnish and 3 in Vancouver. We have never been to the Wicki - but it sounds fantastic. It's been on our "to do" list forever. I'll post pics of our Aeronauts at the Wickaninnish.

                              Last week I hauled out the TriStar for a short trip. I put the bag on the floor while I was arranging my belongings on the bed. I didn't notice that my cat had claimed the bag until I got ready to put the large packing cube in the bag. I'm glad I looked down instead of just dropping the packing cube on the bag.
