    I used to be a 1-bag person and would buy bags big enough for my heavy days and then be lugging more than I needed for light days. Since discovering TB (and this forun), I’ve become a big fan of...

    “Hack” to grab under-seat bag on plane

    When flying, I struggled with getting my under-seat bag out when I needed it, especially when stuck in a middle seat. I had to pull out everything I wanted when I first sat down and hold it in my lap...

    I agree with @Improvised. Your load should fit in the S19 but you’ll likely be limited on adding the periodic extras. I use both an S19 and S25, depending on my load. With a more limited load, the...

    I love TB and didn’t find waterproof alternatives I like. Instead, I went with a waterproof backpack cover I found on Amazon. For light rain, my bag goes naked but for heavier rain I pull out the...

    The more I use my TB bags, the more I love them. I have an S25, S19, L12, and SCB. I wasn’t in immediate love with the S19 and L12 when they first arrived. After playing around with them, I found the...

    @Cristina - How do you connect the bungee to your phone? Are you slipping it into a ghost whale or other organizer?

    Hoooookay. Lesson learned....again....with a Tom Bihn bag. If you don’t love a new bag right away, try it with different pack methods.

    I do the same thing with my S19, S25,and L12. My car is remote access and my front home door is keyless. I keep my sunglasses in the side pocket of each of the packs. Same with my wallet in the L12....

    @G42 — I’m going to keep trying different packing approaches and will try the unzipped sleeve. I didn’t like the S19 at first either for my EDC but after some experimentation it’s really grown on me....

    I’m still undecided on the L12. On weekends, I tend to carry my iPad Pro 9.7, a minimalist wallet, car fob, sunglasses case, and water bottle. I like a little extra space for capturing smaller items...
  11. Just got the last burnt orange L12 in current production run

    I’ve been waffling on the L12 and took the plunge today, snagging the last burnt orange in the current prod run. I usually carry a S19 or S25 as my EDC. I was also using my S19 for weekend romps but...

    I don’t at all. I don’t tend to over-stuff my bag and don’t want the extra weight. I also prefer to let the bag mold to the shape of my back. It’s one of the things that makes carrying the S19 one of...

    I’m able to slip my umbrella in the loop at the base of the bag, where you might otherwise hang a light. Usually I carry my umbrella in the main compartment but when it’s wet, I often slip it in the...

    A little padding on the bottom and back would solve it for me. The alternative is a Synapse version with laptop compartment.
  15. Really want SCB with main compartment zipper

    This post may be a little redundant with past SCB posts. I just bought my first one. It’s a perfect size for my lightest pack days where I’m carrying:

    - Minimalist wallet
    - Car fob
    - iPad Pro...

    I’m 5’4” woman and use both the S25 and S19 and don’t use the internal frame with either.

    The S19 is great for my light-pack days but at least half the time it’s too small. That’s when I carry...

    I have GW envy. It went on hiatus right when I started (ahem) investing in TB. Not even quite sure how I’ll use it, I just want one.

    I’m 5’4” and the S25 is comfortable for me to carry — as long as the bag isn’t so stuffed that it eggs out. I don’t do that very often but would with an S19.
