  1. New Western Flyer + Synapse 25 + Other Goodies!

    So -- I haven't worn a backpack in nearly 30 years (my college days), and since then I've never considered myself to be a "backpack" person. But being a "two bag" traveller, and finding it difficult...

    When I pack a lunch, I use one of these.

    The square flat-ish shape fits nicely in my Co-Pilot, Ristretto, and/or Medium Cafe Bag.

    Of course, now that we're well into summer, I'm lovin' my Pop...

    YES!!!

    I wrote about this in another thread. I'm so used to those top handles now that I'm finding my other, pre-Bihn bags that lack them to be almost unwearable.

    One of my first Bihn orders...

    My two cents:

    I believe COLOR can heavily influence how your bag is perceived.

    We all know about that famous research that showed how a RED sports car is perceived by cops as travelling faster...

    I'm not a "backpack" person, so I'm not familiar with the Synapse 25. But it seems to me that if Matt is used to the...

    I LOVE THIS BAG!!!

    The MCB FS seems to be working out perfectly. Any smaller and it would be flopping around inside.

    A couple more observations:

    The utility of one big cavern, as...

    Great advice! Thanks!

    OK, now I don't feel so bad about how many different Bihn bags I have. :O

    I am spoiled with the Samsonite. It's 33 litres of completely unstructured open space (I DO...

    OK, now I'm narrowing things down.

    I like the Tri-Star, but I'm leaning towards the Western Flyer for my "one-bag" (ok, plus my co-pilot - who are we kidding here) business travel (less than a...

    At the risk of sounding like a diva, I have no intention of ever flying coach.

    Is there a risk of not getting overhead bin space in business or first class??

    Can I second that and also add that "DAWN" is another "grey" in its own moody perfection:

  17. Aeronaut 30 vs 45 vs Western Flyer (for TWO bag travel)

    OK, brand new situation for the Bihn Hive Mind:

    For those not familiar with me, I'm a New Yorker who travels back home to Pittsburgh frequently for 2 weeks at a time. I don't fly - I travel...

  19. Question for fellow neat freaks/germaphobes ...

    I shudder every time someone gleefully mentions how they slide their bags under airplane seats -- ON THE FLOOR!!!

    Don't they know what's been on that floor?

    Tom Bihn vs. Jack Spade: BIHN WINS!!!

    After using my Tom Bihn bags daily for more than two years, I'm spoiled.

    REALLY spoiled.

    The many YouTube videos have been very, very helpful; seeing them handled by real people gives you a much better idea of their scale.

    It's likely less of the U.S. government "keeping everyone guessing" and more of The Independent, in this instance, simply making a mistake.

    Ristretto in verde. :)

    It's my EDC bag.

    BTW that ClipA has a thick silicone pad on each end so as not to scratch the table surface, and can hold up to 45 pounds!
