    Here's the interior of Pilot's center water bottle / umbrella pocket - still remains bizarre to me they'd think to put a drain hole there, but have a mesh liner to the other pockets

    yup, my 13" MBP and my 15" dell both fit with cache - the pilot is excellent in that it can also be easily emptied, rolled, and compressed into another bag like a WF or synapse - that's how I...

    You can try head-fi.org which is pretty much the best place to buy/sell headphones from people who are specifically looking to do that.

    Ha, sure! That's a ULA Camino2 - although be warned those aren't Bihn-type bags but rather ultralights which, as you may know, are a whhooolllle different thing from the more urban Bihn bags. There...

    I love Bihn and wish the forum had a specific section for "things I don't like" because it's fun to geek out over cool new toys and share in the excitement, and it's awkward to disturb that, so a...

    FWIW, I also have the WF and I can fit 3-4 days in it even if I need suits. The trick is to use the Eagle creek medium folder (or two!) in the back pocket. You can also use a DLBP as a packing cube...

    +1, also I hate the cheap handles on the side - they feel and look like something on a bag you win out of a crane-game.

    I use the WF and put my laptop in a cache in the large rear pocket - it very easy to get to and put back that way, either for security or for working before the flight.

    I wore the S25 as a backpack and shoulder or hand carried the A45. It wasn't really a problem until I hit that customs queue and decided it was just easier to hold the much heavier A45 ... Now...

    It's not wrong to want it, just to expect it for the price we're all paying. If TB wants to accommodate, that's great, but then doesn't that set a new expectation for everyone? All of us should now...

    The most important thing for me with a bulk hand-made bag is that it's got seams of steel and it is first and foremost functionally a rock. All of my Bihn bags are, and I've tested them on that...
