    It really is!

    I wouldn't have thought it.

    In fact, I bought it to use as a "second" bag for my longer trips, and as an "overnight(ish)" bag for weekend jaunts.

    Turns out it's pretty darn...

    I find this news disappointing.

    Discussions of "durability" aside and speaking strictly in terms of personal preference I have to say I'm not impressed with the 525.

    Sorry, but being a writer, I consider e-books to be about as much of a blasphemy as ketchup on a steak.

    WOW.

    Not only your first Tom Bihn purchase, but you immediately upped the game by pimping it out with WALNUT fobs on your zipper pulls!

    Well done!!

    I've got so many Tom Bihn bags at this...

    Yeah, I have to agree with you: NW Sky does look pretty sharp with Coyote!

    ADD:

    I could actually see using this as my "one bag" for an overnight business trip.

    The main compartment feels like about 2/3 of one of the two sides of my Western Flyer. I could easily fit...

    I think the NW sky looks good with Coyote, although if I had my druthers I'd have chosen Iberian red.

    You can see I really use those O-rings and key straps!

    New Pilot in Coyote!

    My new Pilot arrived! Yay!

    Consider me a Coyote Convert!!

    And I think I may have now crossed the line from Bihn geek to Bihn junkie. I now own enough Tom Bihn product to open Bihn's first...

    For another look at Coyote -- here's my new Pilot that just arrived!

    This photo is pretty true to life; you can see it's more deep gold than tan or khaki.

    Because of the slight iridescent nature of the ballistic fabrics, some of Tom Bihn's colors don't translate well in even the highest-resolution photos.

    You could certainly ask for fabric swatches....

    After a couple years of toting around a Ristretto in 1050 ballistic Verde and a Co-Pilot in 1050 ballistic Aubergine, this summer I sprung for a Medium Cafe Bag in the 525 ballistic Nebulous Grey.

    I like using the "depth" of the front pockets of my Co-Pilot for rarely-used but "just in case" stuff:

    -- power bank for my iPhone

    -- first aid kit

    -- sani-wipes

    -- gemstone of the day...

    I just got a Western Flyer this summer and I love it!

    Echoing some of the sentiments above, I'd never consider using it as an EDC -- even given all the books and papers you need to carry.

    And -- inevitable.

    Embrace it.

    And enjoy all three of your new backpacks.

    I'm not a water bottle carrier, so it's not a concern of mine, but I have found that on the rare occasion when I do want to carry a beverage, the only ones that fit are those newer...

    It fits more than you might think!

    I don't have to carry a laptop, but the padded separator in the main compartment enables you to carry one without a protective case.

    It's also wide enough...

    Frankly, I like any of those three browns above.

    In order of preference, 1545, 732, then 2322.

    I like a "chocolatey" brown (reddish undertones), rather than a "mocha" (grey undertones).

    I'm a huge fan of color.

    But I also value practicality.
