“I was lucky enough to get some “alone” time with the Synapse today due to an alignment of the planets and a small twist of fate that put me in need of a Braincell for my wife’s new laptop (HP dv3t), getting the new 2XXLT size Braincell for my own computer (HP HDX18t), and a small pug sneaking onto the elevator and taking a tour of the seventh floor just before I arrived at the store… 10 minutes early.”
When Customer C. (owner of a Medium Cafe Bag and ID messenger) followed us on Twitter, we discovered her Etsy shop – heartfeltwool – featuring handmade wool felt cat toys, with 15% of each sale donated to the Oshkosh Area Humane Society. The toys are incredibly cute (we are certain that Tiger would like one) and help support a great cause. See them here.

“they announced all roll aboards had to be gate checked, and of course i was able to bring my Aeronaut aboard …
fit nicely in the overhead bin, most of which were empty. ”
Longtime TOM BIHN Forums member timarelay recently visited our Seattle factory and headquarters. She is the first to view what may be the final version of the up-and-coming Synapse backpack. Here’s what she had to say about the bag:
“I’m 5’3″ with a small build, and I really liked how the bag fit me. It’s a very thoughtful bag with lots of pockets, and I adore its water bottle pocket! Never seen a bag with a water bottle pocket positioned where it is, and I was quite surprised to open that zipper and find a deep cylindrical pocket instead of a small opening. Looks like it will fit a wide range of sizes.
I think it’s going to be a popular bag, and I really hope it’s done soon!”
