Every Swift now comes with a TOM BIHN Ruler

We’ve decided to start including a complimentary TOM BIHN ruler in every Swift, Swift in Cork and Little Swift. Order any Swift now and into the future and you’ll find the ruler inside one of the clear pockets. Sound good?

“So I recently ordered a Large Cafe Bag in Cocoa/Wasabi and I absolutely love it! I’ve searched far and wide for a simple, clean-lined messenger bag (in brown) that fits my on-the-go job requirements. I’m the Director of New Business for a quickly-growing digital agency and I’m constantly doing day trips from SLC to places like LA, SF and PDX. The streamlined nature of your Cafe Bag is perfect. It fits everything I need to cruise through airport security, do a couple of client presentations and carry the little extras that make flying more enjoyable.

Here’s what I pack on a regular basis:

Large Cafe Bag (in Cocoa/Wasabi)
MacBook
Incase Neoprene Sleeve
MacBook Power Adapter
Apple Remote
Zebra Stainless Steel Pen and Mechanical Pencil
Moleskine Classic Pocket Squared Notebook
VGA Adapter
DVI Adapter
Skullcandy Full Metal Jacket Ear Buds (and case)
Stack of Business Cards
Keys to MINI Cooper S Clubman
iPhone 3GS (iPod Sock)
iPhone Earphones (iPod Sock)
Dock Connector to USB Cable
USB Power Adapter

Thanks for making a great bag.”

SurfBits Review: Another Great Tom Bihn Briefcase, The Cadet

“Whenever I review a Tom Bihn bag I receive feedback about the pricing. They are not inexpensive laptop cases. They are hand sewn, hand stitched and locally made superior luggage. Whether you’re looking for a laptop bag, an iPad bag, a briefcase, or maybe something larger, Tom Bihn has the perfect option. The only problem is this, choose carefully, you’ll probably own the one you purchase for many, many years to come.”
