4 day winter trip with one bag: the Synapse

“As an experiment/challenge, I am on a 4 day wintery work trip with only my synapse. In the bag are two sweaters, one sweater vest, two dress shirts, one night shirt, one t-shirt, three pairs of socks and two undies. Also packed toiletries, two notebooks, snacks, glass bowl, utensils, phone charger and wallet. the amazing thing about the synapse is how it can be stuffed to the gills without squashing anything. The pocket placement is so perfectly engineered to maintain a cute shape and balanced weight distribution. I haven’t lacked anything. Next experiment: 18 days abroad.”

TNW: A year with the superb Tom Bihn Super Ego and Tri-Star bags

TNW reviews the Super Ego and Tri-Star

“So, after a year with the bags, I’ve had a chance to get to know them fairly intimately and to test them out under a variety of loads. I’ve been in and through a dozen airports or more, in planes large and small. They’ve accompanied me to half a dozen conferences and been spilled on, dropped, dragged, used as a pillow and as a footrest. These are tough, good looking products that have done me well in a variety of situations and protected my junk all over the place. If that’s enough for you, you can head over to Tom Bihn’s site now to buy one. If you want a deeper look, read on.”

Len: My Western Flyer Review and Packing List


“Once or twice a month, I do something that a lot of folks think is crazy.

I wake up way too early, drive to the airport, and fly 2500 miles to San Francisco (where many of my clients are). I spend the day running from meeting to meeting before heading back to SFO and taking the five-hour redeye home. Frankly, I prefer this routine to staying overnight, as my body never gets a chance to adjust to the time change, and I don’t have to worry about jet lag when I get back.

For these trips, I needed a carry-on bag that met some pretty strict criteria….”

Len chose the Western Flyer as his carry-on bag. Read his full review, with many photos, in the Forums.
