    Darcy, I'm so impressed with the time and effort it must have taken to research this, and then taking the time to explain it so thoroughly. I do understand not having a time hold on the shopping...

    Surprising results - Tri-Star vs A30

    I recently ordered an A30 because I thought it would work better for me than my Tri-Star (and possibly be more comfortable). I finally had time to do a test pack today and found that:

    1. The...

    Thanks, BWeaves - how tall are you? The Tri-Star doesn't pull me backwards, but I probably don't pack as heavy as a lot of people (don't carry a laptop, for example).

    I haven't received the A30...

    Thank you for your feedback. I use a MCB as my personal item/EDC on my travels, so I'm set there. I'll probably receive my A30 on Monday, and will let everyone know how it feels on my back compared...

    Hi Lia,

    Just wanted to let you know that I ordered the A30, with the frame and the hip belt. I hope it'll give me the best of both worlds - I'll have the livability that I don't get as much with...
  7. Hi Lia, Thank you for your feedback. I think...

    Hi Lia,

    Thank you for your feedback. I think living out of the Synik would be similar to living out of my Tri-Star. It's doable, and I've learned how to pack for it. But I think living out of the...

    Hi Lia,

    Thank you for your reply. Have you taken a trip with the Synik? If not, would you mind coming back to share your experiences after traveling with it?
  9. Comfort of backpack straps on Tri-Star vs A30, and maybe SN30?

    A little background first - I had a health condition that required me to use wheeled luggage for a few years. I'm well enough now to go back to luggage carried on my back. I prefer to travel...

    Medium Cafe Bag - number of O-rings?

    How many O-rings are in the main compartment of the current medium café bag? In the description it says 2, but previous versions have 3. If I get a new one, I'd want the 3 (I have a key ring on one,...

    Thank you, Leena. I actually have a Rick Steve's rolling "carry-on" that I use when I can't get by with bringing less stuff. I purchased one later for my son and found that the quality had decreased...

    Frank, thank your for your suggestions, but can you point out where in my post I said I didn't "allow wheeled bags or bags larger than carry-on size"?

    I don't allow or disallow any types of bags...

    If not a Tom Bihn, then... what?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a small tour operator in the US and plan (and guide) group trips for families around the US and Europe (so far... who knows where we'll go next?). I currently have several TB...

    I'd like to wash the entire bag, but can spot clean if a full wash isn't recommended.

    Washing instructions for bag with cork

    Are the washing instructions the same for a bag that has cork?

    Thanks! :)
  17. Side pockets (like those on the Imago) for Medium Cafe Bags?

    I love both my Imago and my MCB, and was wondering if Tom Bihn and crew would consider adding side pockets like those on the Imago to the Medium Cafe Bags. My cell phone falls out of the inside...

    I just wanted to thank everyone for helping me with my questions. I ordered the Imago (olive) and love the color! I also like the size and orientation, although it took me a little while to get used...

    I really like this new red - I prefer reds with blue/black undertones rather than orange undertones. I also like the forest color. These colors are far from drab - they're richer, more vibrant than...

    I think the Imago may be a better fit for me. I like to carry my Kindle w/cover with me everywhere, which is usually fine for the MCB, but when I travel, I need more room for a few extras, and that...

  23. Thinking about ordering the Imago - questions about color, size

    I've been eyeing the Imago for when I need something roomier than my Medium Cafe Bag, but don't want anything too big. If anyone here has both, which one do you prefer using day-to-day? How does the...
