“Just wanted to say here that the zippers are remarkable; I’ve never owned any item with zippers like the Bihn bags have – tough, water-resistant, and secure, even in the look of them – and I have no desire to go back to the rest of the bag world when the time comes to get respectable (i.e. to buy a briefcase).” — Read waxbank’s entire review of our Super Ego messenger bag in the TOM BIHN forums.

“As promised, here are some shots of how I packed my Tom Bihn Aeronaut for my one-month trip to Europe (1 night in Paris, about 25 days in Barcelona, 3 nights in Segovia, 1 night in Madrid). Before you all commend me for doing what seems impossible, let me just say that I’m not following the rules for traveling light as closely as I probably should. Most packing lists for clothes list about 4 bottoms and about 5-8 tops.” Read the entire entry over at Building Bridges blog. There’s more pictures, too. Or, see the Aeronaut for yourself.
“I received the ID messenger bag along with the Brain Cell to protect my MacBook Pro. As a student it is very important to have a sturdy bag to carry my computer in. After using the bag for about a month it still looks exactly the same as the day I got it and it has saved my computer multiple times.” — Read the entire review at MacApper.

We knew you would like the Guardian Light, but we didn’t know you would like it this much: the Guardian Light in White is now sold out a second time as the new shipment of lights we’ve just received is already gone, the lights on their way to fill backorders.
Don’t worry: we’ve ordered more Guardian Lights in White and we expect to have them ready to ship by Friday, May 23rd at the latest. In the meantime, you may want to consider the Guardian Light in Red, which is in-stock and ready to ship. As Just mentioned in the TOM BIHN forums, the Guardian Light in Red uses less batteries than the white.
And buyer beware: there is a cheaper, less cool (in our estimation — we’ve seen both versions) version of the Guardian Light for sale on other sites online that isn’t military grade and isn’t made in Canada. We sell only the Guardian Light that is military grade and is made in Canada.
