dorayme: Hemp Swift as a market bag

“The Swift is the perfect Market bag. It looked so stylish, yet allowed me to carry many smaller purchases and items without feeling like a bag lady. In fact, the only thing that went into the shop bag was our pastries from Pirosky’s.”

Justin Lukasavige of Backcountry Treks reviews the Synapse 25:

AppleTell: Synapse 25 Review

AppleTell reviews the Synapse 25

“Combining spaciousness, an expansive soft shell, and an attractive, clean design, the Tom Bihn Synapse 25 bag is an attractive choice for people who need versatility from their backpack. The Cache on Rails upgrade makes it checkpoint-friendly, and for bikers and hikers, you can add a safety light or a built-in emergency whistle. Pricey but well-designed, this bag is a winner for people who need a backpack with a lot of space, but also want it to look good.”

Gene Marks: 10 Ways to Get Through the Airport Quickly

Tip #4
“Don’t check bags. Yes, I’m telling you to be one of those annoying guys with the shoulder bag and the roller bag (Me? I’ve got an awesome Tom Bihn bag that holds a week’s worth of clothes and fits anywhere). It’s not just about the baggage fees. It’s about time. Even if you have to check your bag at the gate, you’ll get it as you come off the plane and that takes way less time than waiting (hopefully) at baggage claim.”
