“I made one last bundle with my pajamas, a couple of extra tees, and my valuables for storage in my carry-on. I nestled my jewelry, a removable hard drive, and medication inside this tinier bundle that went into my new and wonderful carry-on bag – thank you, E, husband N, A, and A2! I’ve been coveting the Tom Bihn Aeronaut bag ever since E presented it in her travel post a while back.
Ever since then, I’d been wanting a great carry-on that would make checking a bag for shorter trips unnecessary. The beauty of the Tom Bihn Aeronaut lies not only in its storage capacity, but also its versatility. It can be used as a duffle bag with an over the shoulder strap or as a backpack, which is how I’ll be wearing it on this trip, allowing for two free hands with which to pull my two suitcases.”

“Meanwhile, Tom Bihn makes stylish laptop/gear bags (and other bags) that are well-constructed and durable. Tom Bihn is quickly gaining a following, too. I’ve had at least three travelers who, seeing the Bihn bag I was carrying, commented on how much they love theirs.”
