Badger's Stealth TOM BIHN Order

Inside was the Stealth Order: A Black Smart Alec, a Vertical Freudian Slip, a Black Snake Charmer, a Black Ballistic Small pouch and a Black Ballistic Mini pouch. I was too impatient to take a pic of the haul in its box, but the next day the SA accompanied me on its first mission: Journey to the Center of the Library:

The Ristretto is in-stock in all sizes

The updated Ristretto is now in-stock in all three sizes: Ristretto for iPad, Ristetto for 11″ MacBook Air, and Ristretto for 13″ MacBook Air/MacBook Pro.

However, Black/Steel is already on backorder in the Ristretto for iPad and Ristretto for 11″ MacBook Air. We expect Black/Steel to sell out in the Ristretto for 13″ MacBook Air/MacBook Pro soon. The other colors — Steel/Iberian, Olive/Cayenne, and Navy/Solar — are close to selling out, too.

As always, when a color sells out, we make it available for backorder with an estimated shipping date. When you place a backorder with us, your credit card won’t be charged until your order actually ships. It’s often a good idea to place a backorder because backorders are typically shipped out well in advance of a bag officially being back in-stock.

Brain Bag packed with three laptops and a DSLR

Posted by jmcrist in the TOM BIHN Forums.

My Brain Bag was broken in on my last flight from Houston to New Delhi, with a layover in Frankfurt. I flew Lufthansa, and was a little nervous due to the stricter limits of European airlines. Needless to say from the pictures below… that didn’t keep me from overpacking! That baby weighed 35.6 lbs – over half the weight of one piece of checked baggage – and the Lufthansa crew didn’t bat an eye.
