Eire: photos of the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag

“These were taken on a lovely Autumn morning on the banks of the Black Warrior River in Alabama. Other than using the cube as a day hiking bag, airline seat bag, and destination walking-around bag, I also use it as a small messenger bag while riding my bike for errands. While on the bike the cube contains my Fujifilm X-100 (taking the pictures), Rick Steves Wallet, ‘ keys, notebook, pen, small flashlight, tissues, spare T-shirt (also padding for X-100), sunglasses, first aid kit in small Dynema pouch, bike lock, I-phone, FOT pouch (thank you) with small odds and ends inside, flat repair kit, bike multi-tool and tire inflator. I can also add a packable rain jacket if needed. I still have a lot of room left over. This cube is my favorite Tom Bihn bag :)”

Documentally: 3D Clear Organizer offers luxury in grotty hotel room

TOM BIHN luxury in a grotty hotel room

“My @TomBihn 3D clear organiser cube is offering me a fragrant dose of luxury in an otherwise grotty hotel room.

Last week I wasn’t prepared for this hotels meagre facilities. A slither of soap and a plastic cup.

This week I took delivery of some Tom Bihn goodies and uncertain of what this particular pouch was for, the included hook and transparent sides makes it perfect for a wash kit.

I can now imagine i’m in a respectable hotel at the same time as protecting my toothpaste from hungry cockroaches.”

Metro Man: Gear & Gifts for Guys

“One of my favorite moments in the movie “As Good As It Gets” is when Jack Nicholson’s obsessive-compulsive jerk of a character storms into Greg Kinnear’s hotel room, panicked and yelling, only to find Simon (Kinnear) in the middle of laying out his clothing on the bed in perfect, folded symmetry next to his semi-full suitcase. In the middle of his tirade, Jack stops and very genuinely says, “Nice packing.” I like that moment because I’ve found that there are few human qualities more deserving of respect and celebration than the ability to skillfully and strategically pack a suitcase. For the uninformed, allow me to explain the process. Think through your itinerary: how many days, how many changes of clothes (swimming? coat and tie?); grab a few extra boxers and socks and tshirts; fold gently, lay out in rows; then place in suitcase – shoes on the bottom, then pants, then heavy sweaters and jackets, then shirts, then underclothes; then place your gear on top. And herein lies the problem: how do I contain my gear in an organized and classy enough fashion to live up to the hype that is the layer cake of packing perfection beneath it in my overnight bag? Until recently, I honestly didn’t have much of an answer. Razors and toothpaste and prescriptions went in whatever pockets were available, and remained in disarray for my entire trip. But then I came across Tom Bihn.”

TripHackr reviews the Western Flyer

“This bag is fantastic and I would give it a 9.5/10. Its durability and versatility make it stand out above all the rest. With plenty of pockets and packing space you should make this go-to bag for short trips.

It can also simply be used as a great laptop bag or carry-on. I always carry my laptop in it with my other gear even when I am not packing clothes in it. The compartments can be divided in half to create even more pockets to keep things organized.”
