Memorial Day Weekend

We will be closed through Monday for the Memorial Day weekend, opening again on Tuesday, May 31st. All orders received this weekend will be shipped on Tuesday. Over the weekend, we’re going to hike, go to the beach, hang out with friends and family, think about what Memorial Day is all about, and do some work, too. We hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend! See you Tuesday.

The Co-Pilot made a great camera bag for our trip to the beach.

New colors of Ultrasuede® Screen Cloth: Lapis and Asphalt

We’ve added two new colors of our Ultrasuede® Screen Cloth: Lapis Blue and Asphalt Grey. Both are available for order now and ship within one business day. The Ultrasuede® Screen Cloth gently yet effectively cleans glossy surfaces (such as those of the iPad or iPhone) of smudges.

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!”

Update from adamki on the Super Ego under the seat of an AA MD-80

“Just wanted to provide an update. I’ve returned from my first trip using the Super Ego/Tri-Star combo and I had no trouble carrying both on board with both AA and British Airways.

Here’s a photo of the Super Ego under the seat in first class of an AA MD-80:”

themacfanatic: The Tom Bihn Ristretto! – Initial Feelings

Excerpt:
“The materials it is made with are top notch and the bag just looks incredible.  My fiance actually started laughing at me when she saw me open the box and watched as my eyes bulged out of my head!  I was just so impressed (and excited about the extra accessories!) by the initial look of the bag.”

Jeff Mac posted this response to themacfanatic’s review:

“Nice quick review, I am looking forward to the video run through! You should be warned that Tom Bihn bags are like Lays Potato chips and you will NEVER be able to stop at one!

They also last forever, so while the up front cost is high… the actual cost of owning one is not.

I have not pounced on a Ristretto yet as I am fiddling with which lap top case they make will be perfect for me.”
