“The Aeronaut is a very nice looking, elegantly simple and very practical bag. It does what its designed to do very, very well. Add in some packing cubes and organizer pouches and you have a great system for one-bag travel. The cubes are by no means the only ones out there in the marketplace, but they are some of the most lightweight and strong, and pretty to boot. The organizer pouches are straightforward, they do the job well, at a very keen price. Overall, beautiful work Tom Bihn. Well done.” — Read the entire review.
“One of my weaknesses is rushing to order items that sound interesting when I read strangers gushing about them on the web. Close friends rave about things and I say sure, whatever. But strangers? I bite every time.
And so it was that I ordered a sampler box of Larabars based on the longish thread here on these all-natural energy bars. Apple pie, cherry pie, and pecan pie.
Then I ordered another couple of boxes of the cherry and apple pie, and also a box of the cocoa mole, and then another box of the cocoa mole.” — Read the entire thread and join the intervention.
“I mentioned before that Mister bought a Tom Bihn knitting bag for me for Christmas. This is remarkable because Mister believes I have too many bags of all sizes and types and should not buy or accept anymore. Ever. From anyone. For any reason.
However, Knitty.com held a “Design the knitting bag of your dreams” contest a few summers ago and this is what Knitty and bag designer Tom Bihn came up with this bag. (I have two, one for knitting and one for work.)” — Read the full post (complete with link to Flickr photo set of the Swift) over at Aunty Gabby.
Our Clear Quarter Packing Cube is back in-stock and ready to ship.
Sizeasy is a Ruby on Rails web application that helps you compare the sizes of different items (for example: TOM BIHN bags) with 3D, Front, Side, and Top views.
From the Sizeasy Web site: “Sizeasy allows you to compare dimensions of items you find described on the web often. Many online stores show the dimensions of items like Product Dimensions: 192 x 45 x 32mm. Although useful this doesn’t give us a feel for the real size of the item that we would get going into a high street store. Sizeasy allows you to take this size information and see it drawn out to scale next to everyday items so you get a real feel for its size.”
A Sizeasy user has already posted a size comparison of the Empire Builder Vs. the Zephyr Vs. the Size 4 Brain Cell Vs. the Small Packing Cube. See it here.
“I’m a big Tom Bihn fan. Their bags are very high quality and well thought out. I own one of their Brain Bags, a Freudian Slip and a Snake Charmer which I reviewed in a past blog post. On a whim I contacted them to see if they would be interested in sponsoring the Central Ohio Day of .NET since they make great laptop bags and our attendees are people who, strangely enough, use laptops on a regular basis. They are sending us two bags and some cool accessories to give away in our raffle!” — Read the entire post over at MikeWo’s Musings and learn more about the day of .NET

“…I started this thread to show Riley how my dog Georgia likes the Imago. Well, actually she kind of freaked out when I tried to put the Imago near her but it’s main use is to carry her stuff on walks or trips, so it’s a “dog bag”. I carry her water, a portable bowl, bandana for slobber from other dogs at the park, extra leash and harness, a nylabone or two, and of course training treats. With the Q-AM strap it’s good for brisk walks or for breaking up fights at the dog park. Here are pictures after a trip to the dog park where we had lunch on the porch of a resturant which allows us to bring her when it’s not busy. We brought extra blankets because it was still cool out.” — read pretzelb’s full post in the TOM BIHN Forums.
