    Duffle Bag

    Happy to hear someone gave it a good home, Muni_Jedi! Always appreciate good Tom Bihn karma. Many of my own purchases have been made because customers returned items which were out of stock.

    HLT1 [Me Over]

    Edit: I actually bought a Side Kick in 525 Coyote because, for a long time, that was my favorite bag in my favorite color. Emphasis on “was.”

    Skirata44 I’ve also got an Ursa Synapse 19, if you need further persuasion. If you don’t? Well then it looks like the roster for Team Ursa just grew by one more member.
