The Travelite® FAQ on our new Cardinal 1050d ballistic nylon

“The cardinal red color was introduced today on Bihn’s blog. While Bihn fans may already be familiar with his previous crimson ballistic nylon, his blog entry includes a photo comparing the two reds side by side, and it’s obvious that the new cardinal red is a much deeper hue. If you’re looking for a travel bag that’s not your ordinary neutral tone, but you shy away from the really bright colors, you’ll want to take a look at the cardinal. It’s a big pop of color, but it’s deep and rich. If you’re looking for a bag with standout color, the cardinal red is an instant classic.”

Design Features Explained: Aeronaut Grab Handles

The grab handles at either end of the Aeronaut were designed to be in the right place at the right time. Specifically, they provide an inviting and obvious place to grab and give the Aeronaut a yank to extract it from an overhead compartment of a plane or other tight spot. They’re reinforced, so if you need to pull hard, go ahead, and because they’re padded, the whole process will be as comfortable for your hands as possible.

TOM BIHN Design Features Explained: Aeronaut Grab Handles

The Setup: What does Mark Jardine use to get stuff done?

The Setup: What does Mark Jardine use to get stuff done?

The Setup is a collection of nerdy interviews, asking people from all walks of life about the software and hardware they use. Mark Jardine, known for his work at Tapbots, responds: “When I’m on the go, I choose between my second generation iPad or my 11” Macbook Air depending on the type of work I plan to get done. It’s a good thing they both fit into my tiny Tom Bihn Ristretto bag (though not at the same time). I also never forget my Shure SE530 earbuds to drown out the outside world.”

Veritrope: A Tour of the New TOM BIHN Factory

“Walking around the factory, Tom and Darcy also talked about taking pride in growing good jobs for people, the joys of being able to immediately flesh out new concepts and projects, and being a part of an environment that they feel connected to (the Factory’s new location is near an estuary filled with the wildlife they love). In essence, they’ve built their business around two things: being able to make things that they’re proud of and being themselves.”

Read Justin’s entire post on Veritrope. It was great to meet Justin and Lauren and give them a tour of our factory. We could go on about how cool and smart and interesting they are, though we really just hope you get to meet them someday, too.
