The Brooks Review: the Ristretto

The Brooks Review of the TOM BIHN Ristretto

“Early one morning I was going through OmniFocus to see what I needed to change into a project and what I needed to delete from my life. I was brain dumping a bunch of stuff for my upcoming adventure to SXSi and I realized that the kit I wanted to carry around with me, while in attendance, doesn’t fit in my current bag. Crap.

At the very least I determined that I needed to carry my iPad, MiFi, and Canon G9 with me (iPhone in my pocket). I have two bags and even the biggest one is too small to carry the bulky Canon G9. I was stuck trying to decide if I should get a new camera or a new bag to carry this stuff. Common sense won out and I decided that if I get anything it should be a new bag…”

“I just got my Imago this past Monday (it was a nice Valentine’s day gift!). I gave a quick review the other day of that and the Aeronauts my wife and I ordered.
The bag, at first glance, was smaller than what I am accustomed to; I’ve been using a canvas-style messenger bag that was large, but not well-built, and not even close to being as well-designed as the Imago.
That night I packed SO much into that little bag. It truly surprised me. I even fit my 15″ Vaio inside, even though I know it’s not the ideal size. It fit with tons of room left over. The standard strap is well made too; I’ve been pleasantly surprised. And the ballistic nylon, DANG! The material is so flippin’ nice! Sturdy, yet stylish. For those that are on the edge, I highly recommend getting one!”

Multiple plys of Wasabi and Steel 500d Cordura is cut. It’s amazing how many bags we make with Wasabi lining.

“There’s plenty of space for nearly anything else you need to carry on, and two back pockets make it easy to get to your reading material without having to open the bag.”
