One of the most popular TOM BIHN bags carried by military personnel is the Brain Bag backpack. (See our Customer Pictures From Around the World page for more.) To make life a little safer for these folks we’re proud to introduce the Brain Bag in Universal Camouflage – available for pre-order now, ships by mid-March. Note: the Universal Camouflage version of the Brain Bag differs from other versions of the Brain Bag in that it does not have a front mesh pocket. Otherwise, it’s exactly the same bag. If you are a customer active in the military and you already own a Brain Bag that you’d like to replace with the Universal Camouflage version, please email us or call us at 1-800-729-9607 – we’ll arrange to swap.
Beth Whitman, Editor and author of Wanderlust and Lipstick – a site with blogs, guides, and gear reviews for women travelers – has posted reviews of our Small Cafe Bag, 3D Clear Organizer Cube, and Organizer Pouches.
“I have found myself recently in need of a bag that falls somewhere between a large backpack/laptop bag and a purse. Something that’s large enough to hold my journal or notebook but doesn’t need to hold a laptop, like when I’m traveling.
The Small Cafe Bag (above) is the perfect fit for this. There’s plenty of room in this shoulder bag for a guidebook, bottle of water and journal.”

“What then, to make of a product that seeks to serve as a packing cube and as a daypack? The direct result of customer feedback on the Bihn website forum, the two available models of Bihn Packing Cube/Backpacks are simple rectangular daypacks which also function en route as packing cubes. Unlike top loading packs, these unzip practically all the way on 3 sides, making packing them a snap as well as making retrieving items from them when used as a daypack quite easy.”
