Welcome Brian to the TOM BIHN crew!

Brian is learning to drive our forklift
Brian is learning to drive the forklift in our Seattle factory.

Brian is the latest addition to our team. He’s an East Coast transplant and enjoys reading, music, movies and pizza, and riding his bike. Brian is currently reading Neil Young’s biography, and so far he loves Seattle for its coffee and Mighty-O Donuts.

Brian is really good at a lot of stuff, but he specializes in Customer Service. Visit our Seattle store and you’ll probably meet Brian. Calling to check on your order, or making a last minute change? Brian’s likely the one who will help you.

Fitness Travel Gear Review: the Synapse

Fitness Travel Gear Review: the Synapse

Excerpt:
“I love this slim, stylish pack. In fact, it’s one of the best packs I’ve ever tested. The Synapse is superbly designed to efficiently and effectively distribute the contents and weight of my pack and keep me completely organized. The small size is wonderful; I’m much more nimble moving around town and on the trail.”

iPhone J.D. Review of the Cache for Apple Wireless Keyboard

iPhone J.D. Review: the TOM BIHN Ristretto for iPad

“There is not much to say about the Cache because the design is so simple, and I’m using the word “simple” in a good way. The Apple Wireless Keyboard is a snug but easy fit in the case, which is tapered to follow the wedge shape of the keyboard. You insert the keyboard so that the battery side of the keyboard is near the flap, although you can use it either with the keys on the bottom or the keys on the top. The Cache is padded so the keyboard is protected from anything scraping against it or yanking off one of the keys. There is a flap on the Cache that can be tucked into the opening to keep it closed.”
