“Now we know what Tom’s favourite tipple is, I thought I would share my proposal for an alternative way to measure the capacity of his bags: Spaten units. As you can see below, 45 Spaten units (aka steins) will fit into an Aeronaut, while 16 half-Spatens will fit into the Medium Cafe Bag.”

“My daughter loves to draw and write poetry. She’s 10 and this past Christmas, we decided to forgo the typical Barbie complete with house, car and 7 fab outfits, for a Field Journal notebook in her favorite color- Red. at $75, I think we got the better end of the deal. (and also some super groovy color pencils) She has LOVED it! She drags it everywhere she goes, she’s stuffed all the outside pockets with extra notes, and wildflower books. She calls it her purse with a purpose.”

“It sure looked that way, especially once we opened our luggage. Either that or we sponsored Tom’s next trip (By the way, Tom, my whole family recommends Greece.)
This is my mom right after we met up at DIA, for a family trip to Greece.
Before you are 4 Aeronauts (one is a breve, the other 3 have fancy-pants lining colors), a Smart Alec (belonging to my brother, Alec), and one Small Cafe bag. What you can’t see are the countless pouches, cubes, wallets & keeping the insides neat & happy. Unfortunately, since we were packing light many other TB bags had to be left at home
This was the family’s first time using TB luggage…they fell in love at first site & again on each of the mornings that we packed up to move to a new locale. Even the woman working the Luftsana counter in Frankfurt wanted one!”
“I am happily playing with my brand new (just arrived Monday) Medium Cafe Bag in Crimson/Steel, which is a color I’m falling more in love with every day. (And I’m not normally a red person either.) I bought the MCB to carry my iPad around with a wireless keyboard, stand, and various things from my purse. But just for fun, I decided to experiment and see if my Olympus e620 DSLR would fit. I didn’t think it would, since the depth of the MCB, from front to back, is listed as only three inches. But I’m beginning to think that Tom Bihn cloned some threads from Mary Poppins’ bag, because all of my TB bags seem to hold way more than you’d think they could, based either on their measurements or merely looking at them from the outside.”
