    Three years ago I'd never heard of Tom Bihn.

    I'd never even seen a "Bihn" bag. At the time, I was still enamored with my Jack Spade bags. And let me tell you, I'm a...

    I've been "wet shaving" for decades now.

    I'm from New York.

    WOAH.

    *mind blown*.

    I think this may be a game-changer!!!

    My biggest frustration with the key straps is that even on the strap, the keys find a way to migrate to the bottom -- so that when...

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

    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!
