Horizontal Freudian Slip - Tom Bihn 13

The Horizontal Freudian Slip (like its fraternal twin the Vertical Freudian Slip) is an insert that adds eleven extra pockets to your bag to help organize your files and accessories.

The horizontal format of the Horizontal Freudian Slip means it fits great inside many of our briefcases, travel bags, laptop bags, and messenger bags. It'll also probably fit inside your current messenger bag or briefcase (compare the external dimensions of the Horizontal Freudian Slip — 14.8" x 11.8" .50" — to those of your current bag).

One side of the Horizontal Freudian Slip features two pockets with an asymmetrical design, each capable of fitting up to a .5" thickness of files or papers. These pockets fit both A4 and U.S. Standard papers/file folders.

The other side of the Horizontal Freudian Slip has two zippered pockets. One pocket is 8" x 3.5" and the other is 5" x 4": both can fit a wide range of accessories, from pens to cables to power supplies. These pockets zip shut with #5 YKK coil zippers with plastic sliders, chosen for this application because they are less likely to scratch sensitive electronic gizmos. Below the zippered pockets are a series of open-top organizer pockets: one business card pocket, four pen pockets, one iPhone or cell phone sized pocket, and one larger pocket perfect for many power supplies.

The Horizontal Freudian Slip is made with an exterior of 500 denier Cordura®; the pockets are lined with our ultralight Japanese 200 denier Dyneema®/nylon ripstop fabric. A medium density cross-link polyethylene foam is what helps the Horizontal Freudian Slip retain its shape over the many years you'll use it.

A handy loop on the top of the Horizontal Freudian Slip makes it easy to pull it out of your bag and also gives you the option of hanging the Horizontal Freudian Slip on a doorknob or on the wall.
