dorayme: Western Flyer by car for 5 days!

“I just returned home from a 5 day, 4 night, 3 hotel initiation trip with my Steel/Ultraviolet Western Flyer with backpack straps. I got to meet and had a lovely evening with Janine!

I needed to pack for casual weekend wear suitable for a church conference, plus some recreation clothes for the Zoo, outings with the kidlets and visits with family and friends. I am still new at minimalist packing, and I admittedly over packed. I also had along my Side Effect in my Cork Little Swift for my handbag, my Steel/Cork/Wasabi Imago for my “car” bag, and my Steel/Black Utility tote to bring along some spinning for any down time I could find.”

Orders over $20: Complimentary Fourth of July Small Organizer Pouch

Orders over $20: Complimentary Fourth of July Small Organizer Pouch

We came up with a limited edition Organizer Pouch to celebrate the Fourth of July: the Fourth of July Small Organizer Pouch. It’s made out of our new Navy U.S. 1050d ballistic nylon and features contrasting red trim and white stitching on the zipper. And we added a “Made in USA” label just to remind everyone where all TOM BIHN bags are made. Place an over $20 order now through Tuesday, July 5th at 12:30pm Pacific Time, put “Fourth of July” in the comments box during checkout, and we’ll include a complimentary Fourth of July Small Organizer Pouch in your order. This applies to pre-orders or backorders too: we’ll include the Fourth of July Pouch in your order whenever your order ships.

Ballistic nylon was originally developed to be used 20 or more layers thick to make bullet-proof jackets. One layer thick, it makes great travel bags; however, it is not bullet-proof or even fireworks-proof. The good news is that it is pretty quiet and won’t scare kids or cats or dogs.

(Remember that the colors red, white and blue are also the national colors of Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, the Czech Republic, France, Iceland, Liberia, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, the Philippines, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Thailand, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. So even if you don’t live in the U.S., you might still like this pouch.)

New (Sort-Of): TOM BIHN Padded Pouch for Magic Mouse

The Padded Pouch for Magic Mouse will help protect your Apple Magic Mouse against bumps and drops. An interior of super-soft brushed tricot cradles your Magic Mouse and protects it against scratches; the #5 YKK coil zipper has a plastic slider instead of a metal one so your mouse doesn’t scratch on its way in or its way out.

The Padded Pouch for Magic Mouse is simply our Padded Organizer Pouch in size Mini, renamed to let Magic Mouse users discover it for this use — the Mini Padded Organizer Pouch turns out to be a perfect fit for Magic Mouse.
$9. Ships within one business day.

“What a great daybag when you need to layer on and off. Weather is so changeable in Iceland! The first pic, taken at the geothermal area ( boiling mud and steam vents) near Myvatn has a foggy area due to the rain and howling wind.”

New: Ballistic Nylon Organizer Pouches

We make Organizer Pouches in Clear, Cordura, Padded, Cork, and Dyneema, so when gmanedit and others from the TOM BIHN Forums suggested that we make 1050d ballistic nylon Organizer Pouches, it made total sense. Ballistic Nylon Organizer Pouches are now available for pre-order and ship by mid-July. Choose from Mini (Cardinal), Small (Navy), Medium (Forest), and Pen/Pencil (Steel). In addition to adding extra organization to any bag, Ballistic Organizer Pouches are a great way to see small samples of our new Navy, Forest, and Cardinal 1050d ballistic nylon fabrics.
