    Exclamation My Nebulous-Heavy Pre-Order Came!

    So, first things first. Kat, Darcy, Matt, Matthew, Cody, Tim, and Mike (along with everyone else on the Tom Bihn Crew) are awesome. Kat is double-awesome because of the robots. They answered a ton of questions as I was trying to map out upgrades to my everyday-carry and travel bags - which I obsessively over-organize and constantly abuse. To that point, phenomenal customer service combined with bags that can work great for decades while being obsessively over-organized and constantly abused, explain why I've been a Tom Bihn loyalist for decades. Thank you guys for your patience, expertise, and help. Also, please thank the hard workers on the other side of the cutters and sewing machines. The bags are gorgeous, and I'm so grateful to them for how their hard work makes my life much easier.

    On to the bags.

    NEBULOUS IS GORGEOUS! It exceeds my expectations. WOW!

    The Guide Edition is the platonic ideal of the Synapse 25. The external attachment points add a ton of functionality, and the aesthetics are gorgeous. If I ran the zoo, this would be the version of the S25.

    While the S25 GE is perfect for everyday carry for most folks, don't be afraid of the Brain Bag if you're 6'1" like me. It's a good-sized backpack, but it does not look or carry like a duffel (or an Aeronaut for that matter). You could absolutely use this as your backpack for school, and if you carry a lot of books, it's a better choice for that purpose. The double-main compartment is also really nice. The S25 is a great purse, regardless of your sex or gender identity. The Brain Bag is a great bookbag.

    The new Freudian Slips in Cloud also look treat, and make finding stuff much easier. I really think this should be the default for those. My only complaint is that it can't be hooked to the attachment points for a Cache. *sob*

    Also, NEBULOUS IS GORGEOUS!

    Here are some photos. Robots are cool. (I took the opportunity to get some additional organizational components for my wife's bags and for friends bags as well :D)

    (I tried embedding the photos, but the forum software got grumpy about it)

    50 shades of grey much?

    Beautiful neutrals. I much prefer greys to black, when it comes to bags and clothing.

    Nebulous really is nebulous to look at! In some pictures it looks like a darker version of dawn. In others, there's an almost taupe undertone. I'm planning to grab a Nebulous Travel Cubelet with my next order, and I can't wait to see it live.

    I have a Nebulous Truck, and it shows to me as a saturated neutral dark grey. I don't see any blue or taupe.

    To my eyes, Nebulous is dark grey. I prefer deep blue (and steel).

    Thanks for these pictures! I love gray, but Could's a little too light, and Steel's a little too blue/green. I spent months considering the S19, and as soon as it was available in Nebulous I pounced! Your picture of the three bags in Nebulous right next to each other actually made me drool a little... Mine doesn't arrive until next week with my Shop Tote pre-order. :-(

    I generally agree. Also, the deep blue/coyote combo is so classic I couldn't convince myself to go with anything else.

    All of my previous bags are Steel. I think I actually like Nebulous even more.

    Hey CJoshuaV, nice pictures! I'm awaiting my nebulous grey guide's edition. Any chance you could shoot some more pictures of the Synapse? It would help me through the wait haha! I'm very curious to see how the grey looks outside, and the Coyote from the back and sides.

    Second that Joshua. I got the GE25 in the Nebulous Coyote combination. I canít stop admiring it. I also like the structure of the bag.
