Gear Diary review: the Ristretto

“There are a few companies that consistently impress me with the design, functionality and quality of their laptop and iPad bags. Tom Bihn is one of them and, with the recent release of the updated Ristretto bag for iPad, 11″ MacBook air and 13″ MBA they have, yet again, proven why they are such a great company.”

Medium Cafe Bag used as DSLR kit

Thanks to Christina Shuy for sharing these photos with us.

“4 lenses, the camera, the SD cards, batteries, and lens cleaner [in the Medium Cafe Bag]. If I go spectate at an professional hockey game (I’m a fan), I can easily get to everything and just slip the tickets to the game, my keys and my wallet in it (there is room left to spare) and go in that way.”

Bob Benedetti: Cadet is the best bag for Ultrabooks

“If you are looking for a bag to carry just about anything, you can’t go wrong with a Tom Bihn product..He makes a full line from tiny utility bags to travel bags to backpacks.. I have been using one of his Ristretto bags for my iPad for over a year… I love it and it still attracts remarks for its cool look.”

conejo23: My Tri-Star review (with comparisons to the Brain Bag)

“I’ll cut to the chase and then fill in some details, along with pictures. The Tri-Star is an incredible bag. The design is as impressive as the reviews I poured through indicated it was. This is a typical Tom Bihn bag so I don’t need to go into excessive detail here, you all know the materials, construction, finishing, it’s all first rate. Very, very impressive.”
