Originally, when I ordered my Ego, I forgot to upgrade prior to checkout and received the Basic Shoulder Strap with my great bag. When I visited the Seattle Factory Showroom this August I bought the Absolute Shoulder Strap (original).
I must say, that the first time I lifted the bag after quickly installing the new strap, I felt the difference on my shoulder. It does not feel like I have a twenty pound bag hanging from my left shoulder. The new strap makes it possible to carry more gear.”
The Clear Organizer Wallet is now shipping in all colors: Cocoa, Navy (sold – no clear front), Black, Steel Dyneema, Plum, Indigo, and Olive.

Customer feedback on the Synapse from the TOM BIHN Forums:
“I have used my Plum Synapse for the past three days, and I’m in love! It has forced me to downsize from all of the stuff I carried around in the Smart Alec, which is much better for my back, and everything just works so well. And it’s a gorgeous bag!” – marbenais
“So as usual the bag looks great and I am looking forward to finding out all the great things about the Synapse that don’t become apparent until after it is used, the way all TB bags are designed…” – keb
The Brain Bag backpack is now in-stock in all colors: Black, Steel, Olive, and Indigo.
“Last week we took a trip to Playa Del Carmen in Mexico for a friend’s wedding and assorted South of the Border fun. With many miles to travel and a full agenda, who else would be my second-best traveling companion? My wife is #1, of course, but my Brain Bag is a close #2!” – MagicTiki
Our Seattle Factory Showroom/Retail Store will be open this Thursday from 12 – 4pm. See you then!
“Just returned from first air travel with MacBook Air in Cache. Since I have the solid state drive it occurred to me that the protection of the Brain Cell was overkill. I felt very comfortable with my Air in the Cache in an ID bag. Added bonus was that for security I popped the Air/Cache in the ID’s open back pocket. It fit perfectly and was exceptionally easy to pop in and out for the TSA folks.”
“Another trip, another post. Can you tell I love my Western Flyer?!
I’ve just done my first trip as a (part time) grad student to attend a research conference. It was in Ballina, a beautiful river / beach side town in northern New South Wales”
