Updates to the Brain Bag (and Smart Alec and Synapse)

We’ve added a heavy-duty clip to the front of the Brain Bag, just under the top-most zippered pouch. It’s a handy spot to clip a water bottle, umbrella or even an insulated coffee mug. Because it has a low profile, it’s not in the way when you’re not using it.

We’ve also added a hydration tube clip to all three backpacks: the Brain Bag, the Smart Alec and the Synapse. If you use any of these bags for hiking or cycling, you’ll appreciate the ability to keep the business end of your hydration system conveniently attached to the shoulder strap. It works with most of the popular hydration sacks and fits tubes up to 3/8″ or 10mm. It attaches to the vertical sternum strap adjustment strap on the shoulder straps, and is easily removable if you don’t need it, or if you just want to move it to the opposite strap.

The Brooks Review: the Ristretto

The Brooks Review of the TOM BIHN Ristretto

“Early one morning I was going through OmniFocus to see what I needed to change into a project and what I needed to delete from my life. I was brain dumping a bunch of stuff for my upcoming adventure to SXSi and I realized that the kit I wanted to carry around with me, while in attendance, doesn’t fit in my current bag. Crap.

At the very least I determined that I needed to carry my iPad, MiFi, and Canon G9 with me (iPhone in my pocket). I have two bags and even the biggest one is too small to carry the bulky Canon G9. I was stuck trying to decide if I should get a new camera or a new bag to carry this stuff. Common sense won out and I decided that if I get anything it should be a new bag…”
