Back in-stock this week:
“I bought myself a Swift for Christmas this year. It came with the standard Yarn Stuff sack, but I also purchased another Yarn Stuff sack with the clear bottom. This bag rocks. I am a guy who knits, and I am not exactly dainty. I use really large needles and thick yarn (my friends call it “rope”). This bag does everything the Tom Bihn folks claim it does” — Read bobster’s full post in the TOM BIHN Forums.
We think that those of you who buy the SuperDrive (encased in the
same aluminum as the MacBook Air) will want to protect it just
like you want to protect your MacBook Air, so we’ve introduced
a new size of our Padded Organizer Pouch designed specifically
to fit the MacBook Air SuperDrive.
Tom has just completed the pattern for the new Size 6X Horizontal and Vertical Brain Cell laptop cases, designed specifically to fit the new unbelievably thin MacBook Air laptop introduced today by Apple. The Size 6X Brain Cells are available for pre-order now with a shipping date of late February.
The Size 6X Horizontal Brain Cell will clip securely inside our ID, Ego, and Super Ego messenger bags, Empire Builder and Zephyr briefcases, Western Flyer travel/overnight convertible briefcase, and Brain Bag backpack, or slip inside your current briefcase or messenger bag. The Size 6X Vertical Brain Cell will clip securely inside of the Brain Bag backpack or slip inside your current backpack.
The TOM BIHN Brain Cell laptop case has gained a reputation for offering
the best protection one can get for their laptop. For more information on the protective qualities of the Brain Cell, visit the Brain Cell page.
“I have it and I love it! I can’t wait to go somewhere just so I can use it (well, the way it was meant to be used. I suppose I may be tempted to just use it as a day bag if I can’t get on a flight soon enough!)
One thing I hadn’t noticed from the pictures – the zipper pulls! For those of you concerned about the metal zippers making noise – the Western Flyer has cord pulls! YAY! No need for metal since you’ll have this one with you. It makes sense! And it’s awesome!
Great size! ALSO, the zippered divider is pure genius!!!
The Western Flyer: Available now in Crimson, Black, and Steel. Ships Immediately.
“This isn’t that new (went into effect Jan 1, 2008), but given the usage of laptops, cameras, cell-phones, and other small electronics, I thought I’d post a link to the FAA guidelines for traveling with spare lithium-ion batteries. If you carry these, you want to put them in your carry-on rather than your checked luggage, be aware of the limits in the number of spare batteries you can carry, and pack them safely.”

Praise for the ID bag!
“I love it. I have room in the open front “bay” for my mp3 player, travel mouse, deck of cards, and other accessories, and my freudian slip, laptop, and whatever textbooks I need for courses fit easily into the main zippered section.
Praise for Q-AM strap: I remember having some doubts about the Q-AM; I seemed to think it wouldn’t be comfortable because Tom Bihn also marketed the absolute strap as the “most comfortable.” Wow, was I wrong! The Q-AM doesn’t really work like a strap to carry your bag, it turns your bag into something you wear ;p I cinch one strap and the bag is snug against my back; un-cinch and it’s free to slide off my shoulder. And I haven’t had a sore arm yet after carrying it across campus.”
