Posted in the thread started by MyJourneys: “Review: Tri-Star, Medium Cafe Bag, Organizer Wallet, etc. :)”
“[The Tri-Star] fit under plane seats with room to spare. On several recent trips, the flight attendants were banning all wheeled bags (regardless of size) from being carried on due to space issues, I was able to walk right on with no issues. Instead of fighting to beat the crowds to insure overhead space, now I sit and relax while everyone else waits in slow-moving lines to board, then I walk right to my seat, pull my Cafe Bag out of the center pocket, tuck my Tri-Star underneath the seat in front of me, and have a seat. No more fighting to get in the front of the line for overhead space. I’m so care-free and relaxed that I’ve caught other travelers throwing some envious looks my way.”
Photo by Marisa, posted to our Facebook page. The Limpet backpack pictured was sewn by Tom himself in his Santa Cruz, CA workshop in the early-to-mid 90’s. Very few were ever made.
The Tri-Star is available for pre-order in Navy/Solar and Navy/Iberian and ships by late June.
TXGirl has posted amazing — and frightening — photos of tornadoes in Denton and Keller, Texas in the TOM BIHN Forums. Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the extreme weather in the Midwest and South. We’re sure you’ve seen the link to donate to the Red Cross, but here it is again. We’re making our donation today.
Thanks to Chris for sharing this amazing photo of himself, his family, and the Synapse at Tokyo Disneyland. Chris writes:
“The Synapse was the perfect companion at Tokyo Disneyland. I was able to haul both kid’s goodies (diapers, hats, gloves, snacks, and drinks). Thank you for the amazing product!”
