“Your definition of long use poses no challenge to Tom Bihn bags, in my experience. A decade ago TB sold a padded version of what’s now called the Large Cafe Bag as a laptop bag. I bought one (plum and kiwi), and it has outlived three laptops and survived a tornado, and for the past six years it has been in the custody of a commuting niece of mine who carries her mac laptop everywhere, every day. I swear to you, it looks (and works) EXACTLY as it did when it first came out of the box. Nothing has peeled, frayed, popped, or broken. Seams, straps, zippers, all the parts, are still in MINT condition.” — posted by LWarren in the TOM BIHN Forums. Read the entire post.
