“Although the folks at Tom Bihn offered — via Twitter, no less — to rush it to me in South Africa, I saved the shipping expense and had them send it to Virginia Beach. It was waiting for me when I got home.

And let me tell you, this strap is awesome. It’s wide and comfortable and stretchy. It places much less of a burden on my tired, aging shoulder than the [other manufacturers] strap ever did. All travel bags should come with the Absolute Shoulder Strap. Or something like it.”

Innovation in Travel Accessories: Tom Bihn Laptop Keyboard Cover

About.Com Europe Travel Blog on the TOM BIHN Laptop Keyboard Cover

Posted at: James’ Europe Travel Blog
By James Martin, About.com Guide to Europe
“I’m not a “cheap stuff” sorta guy. When I buy a bag or travel accessory, I want to make sure the design and manufacturing folks have thought things out. I don’t want the sort of industrial garbage in which innovation is measured by how much the company can save by removing features or using inferior material while maintaining the same price. Sometimes they even have the unmitigated gall to claim that the (new and improved!) hobbled product is better or safer because of it (think about that 6 inch cord on your toaster, for example).

So when a small company appears on my radar claiming real innovation, I’m happy to look into it and share.”

“This is a company and a product I highly recommend.”

From the {position: relative;} blog:

“I’ve had an Olive/Wasabi Small Cafe Bag from Tom Bihn for almost 8 years. I love this bag – it’s the perfect size, it looks cool, and it’s very clean-lined.

One of the buckles broke yesterday. I emailed customer service about 15 minutes ago and have already gotten a response – they offered to fix it for free. But I decided to order a new one, because my old one is getting a bit frayed (and I can try a new color). This is a company and a product I highly recommend.”

The TOM BIHN Aeronaut: One Bag in Europe

“After tons of research I settled on the Tom Bihn Aeronaut bag.”
……
“I was stunned to discover that even with 2 pairs of shoes, 2 skirts, 2 dresses, 2 pairs of pants, 4 shirts, 10 pairs of underwear, 4 pairs of socks, pajamas, my toiletries (not insubstantial), an iGo charger, 3 guidebooks, and all of my other stuff placed in it, I had room to spare. Before succumbing to temptation and packing some of the items I had taken out of my pile as unnecessary (bathing suit, etc.), I decided to weigh the bag. First I stepped on the scale (that’s another post by itself), then I put on the bag as a backpack. I was amazed that it weighed 20 lbs and still felt comfortable enough to walk around the airport for a few hours, race to catch a metro or wander the streets before check-in time at our hotel.”
