“Got my Tri-Star used but with the Absolute Strap (which is one of the greatest things ever) in September. When I was looking to get the Tri-Star I wasn’t really sure what other bag would fit in the middle, but going by the dimensions I decided to go with the Ristretto for iPad to carry a netbook (don’t have an ipad). Needed this to One Bag it on my travels. This is the first trip with the Tri-Star, a 4 day trip to Vegas in October. The Ristretto worked just fine, pulled it out as my in flight bag, and its the ideal day bag.”
“Although the folks at Tom Bihn offered — via Twitter, no less — to rush it to me in South Africa, I saved the shipping expense and had them send it to Virginia Beach. It was waiting for me when I got home.
And let me tell you, this strap is awesome. It’s wide and comfortable and stretchy. It places much less of a burden on my tired, aging shoulder than the [other manufacturers] strap ever did. All travel bags should come with the Absolute Shoulder Strap. Or something like it.”
