“I love these bags, they are some of my favorites, and combined with the Utility Totes of yesteryear they make a nice shopping complement. I am ready to hit the shops and get groceries for my family. All of my lesser reusable bags have been retired to be given away.”

“Here’s my Tom Bihn layout for a NYC conference. I have a Ristretto for my 13″ Air, but I actually prefer the horizontal layout of the Imago. I put my Air into a Cache, which I can remove from the bag and carry around the conference.”
Recent customer feedback:
“I received the Ristetto today and promptly loaded it with my new 11″ MacBookAir, its external superdrive, power adapter, a tiny 500GB backup drive, and wireless mouse. Everthing fits perfectly without being cramped; yet it is quite a svelte and attractive package. I have lots of computer and camera bags to compare it with, including a couple of ____, three _____, a _____, and several ______. This bag is very well made, superbly engineered, and competes with the best of them. Just wanted you to know. I’ll look at Tom Bihn bags first when I need yet another bag.”
“I have recently decided to purchase a messenger bag, and while looking for the right one I realized that I should probably go with the same people who have made the backpack I’ve been using the last 10 years. And then I realized how amazing that is given my penchant for breaking things. So I don’t know if you folks use testimonials, but I figured I’d give one:
Back in 2001, when I was a sophomore in high school, I purchased an early Bihn bag to go with my (humongous) laptop. It came with a snap-in detachable laptop case and pockets everywhere, and enough room to cram virtually anything. The laptop is long gone, but I continued to use the backpack (which I still have) through High School and College both. I am very hard on my things, and this backpack is maybe my only everyday-use possession that has toughed it out through the wear and tear I’ve given it over the past decade.
Even now I don’t need to replace it, except that I don’t use a backpack as often.
So, thank you!”
