MobileTechReview: the Breve for iPad/iPad 2 (5 out of 5)

How long they’ve been using their bags

Roger sent us this email:
“I’ve had your
Ego bag for about 7 years now, and I was thinking of replacing it. Then I took a careful look, and it shows almost zero wear! This despite my using it as my only briefcase, usually 7 days a week including car, airplane, and bike travel. It’s really phenomenal. The only reason to get a new bag would be boredom with the color scheme!”

And it inspired us to ask folks on Facebook how long they’ve been using their TOM BIHN bags.

Alexey: “I finally retired a Bihn day pack last year after TWENTY years of use. Replaced it with a Synapse…”

Katherine: “My oldest Bihn bag was bought in the fall of 1992, so pushing twenty-years-old. I think it’s one of the earliest messenger bags. It’s still in great condition.”

Quawkle: Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag (Ristretto)

“Last week I ordered the Ristretto for MBA from Tom Bihn and had it shipped 2nd Day Air via UPS. It arrived this past Tuesday and so far, I really love the bag. It holds both the MBA and the iPad with plenty of room for a small Tom Bihn bag for carrying cables, earphones, etc. In addition, there are a number of extra pockets and space for other accessories such as pens, clothes, etc.”

One Bag, One World Review of the TOM BIHN Large Cafe Bag

“The Tom Bihn Large Cafe Bag is a multi-functional, multi-purpose bag that is good for daily use, business use (assuming you don’t work with people who wear three piece Brooks Brothers suits,) and for travel. It can hold an amazing amount and is now my “go to” bag for most journeys—near and far.”
