    I think it's a great idea! I would have tried for a Stealth Icon, but I felt they would be the most popular and would disappear from my cart too quickly to even bother attempting it. (I think I might...

    I pretty much never leave my wallet and valuables unattended, unless I am home or at work. If I'm on a train, plane, coffee shop, or whatever, they go with me when I leave my seat. To me, this is...

    I was describing to someone else how the items disappearing as I tried to move them from my Wish List to the cart were like blinking Christmas tree lights :) Icons disappearing from the screen right...

    Thanks! All your wonderful photos and comments have convinced me to give it a try!

    edit: And obviously I wasn't the only one! The Logic Blue Icon was sold out in a minute or two. Fortunately I...

    Thanks so much! I discounted this color at first because it seemed liked a pastel-ish color, but if it's close to Fjord or even has some of those qualities I'm very interested in trying it. FWIW, I...

    I have used Google Fi as my primary (only) line for a few years now. It's gotten better over time. It worked well in Europe and in the Middle East for me, and recently they improved the service in...

    @Perseffect, thanks for your point of view! Very well-articulated.

    I rely on the Small Cafe Bags a lot and I hope they are not going anywhere. They are great travel bags. And in museums with...

    Makers Bag vs Icon

    Does anyone have both the Makers Bag and a review version of the Icon? I am interested in how they compare, and I believe others have the same question as well. I had a Makers Bag in the past and...

    That's kind of unbelievable! I have to think severe jet lag or some other factor may have been responsible.

    Yes, definitely split the debut. It gives people with varying schedules a chance to order.

    There was a discussion of this elsewhere, and someone suggested clipping the Tom Bihn key straps to a wire hanger. I decided to do something similar, getting a small steel rod from my hardware store,...

    I just tried them both out, and I have to agree with @imagineez. Maybe it is the weight of the Pop Tote and increased sturdiness, or the longer, flatter shape, or just a difference in the handles,...

    Most of my valuable items (wallet, A5 paper notebook, phone, iPad Mini) are stored in a small bag like the Side Kick inside whatever else I'm carrying, so I'm confident that things will stay dry....

    I think it really depends on the person, because we are all shaped differently. It seems that some people find the Synapse-style straps more comfortable, and some people the Synik. For me, I had...

    I would ask him to give you some measurements of the interior of the bags they'll be using. That should only take a few minutes and will save you both frustration in the end.

    Then take a look at...

    I kind of agree, and I've steadfastly done carry-on for many years now. However, there is something to be said for the strategy of checking the heavy stuff and carrying just a few essentials that...

    Same. I was excited for the new colors, but ended up returning my Dawn PCSB with the new attachment points. I treasure the ones I have in the original style.

    Would a sharp tweezers or needle nose pliers help? Also, before attempting surgery, I would suggest shooting Tom Bihn customer service a direct email with this question.

    The NFTD -- for sure -- holds more than the Synapse 19. I've done side-by-side packing tests. The rectangular shape is wonderful for maximizing capacity, and the three-part organization makes it more...

    I'm so curious about this. I'd love something that can be carried as either a shoulder bag or a backpack, and is the right size and shape for a plane bag. The Stowaway was very interesting and I was...

    I like the 525 colors better, (particularly Deep Blue vs. Navy and the "new" Aubergine), and I will appreciate even a slight weight-savings. So I'm interested to see the Western Flyer in 525 fabrics....

    Love mine! It's very easy to carry for short trips. Though it's black, which is an uninspiring color, and I'm seriously tempted by the new Deep Blue that will be offered.
