In this, the first video, Eric shows the Aeronaut in both 1050d ballistic nylon and 400d Dyneema®/420d nylon ripstop and explains the differences between the two materials. Also shown are Aeronaut Packing Cubes.
“inside the aeronaut are 4 changes of warm clothes for me (heading to the uk), 2 changes of workout clothes, swimming trunks, a thicker book, and two 3d clear organizer pouches with toiletries. i’ve packed in a wf sized packing cube backpack (everything but socks and underwear) and a small packing cube (for the socks and underwear).”

“The new Tom Bihn Synapse 25 is the larger 25 liter/1526 cubic inch version of the Synapse (now called Synapse 19). For those familiar with the original pack, the Synapse 25 keeps much of the original design. The multiple pockets, which don’t cannibalize space from the main compartment, are still there. So is the 1000D Cordura Nylon exterior, 400D Dyneema Riptop interior, water resistant YKK Aquaguard zippers and bulletproof (made in the U.S.A.) build quality. In essence, Tom has taken everything good about the original Synapse and incorporated it into a larger package with some tweaks to make it even more user friendly. Let’s take a closer look.”

3D Clear Organizer Cube in Wasabi Dyneema/nylon.
Our 3D Clear Organizer Cube — a one-compartment organizer cube with clear front and back panels designed to meet the TSA 3-1-1 liquids-program requirements — is now available in Wasabi, Iberian, Steel, and Ultraviolet 200d Dyneema/nylon. Our ultralight 200 Dyneema®/nylon fabric — used mainly as a lining for our travel bags and backpacks — is custom produced just for us by a mill in Japan. Its great tear strength and surprising abrasion resistance come from the grid of white Dyneema® yarns woven approximately every .25″ / 6 mm parallel to the X and Y axes (the weft and warp), forming the distinctive ripstop pattern (the Dyneema® yarns don’t accept dye and hence remain their natural white color). Now you can choose a 3D Clear Organizer Cube made out of the same material as the lining of your Aeronaut, Tri-Star, Co-Pilot or Western Flyer travel bag.
“Just picked it up today at the store after pre-ordering it. I can fit my iPhone, wallet, Google Nexus 7 in its case, pocket knife and a writing pad. It can easily fit more, but for illustration purposes this is what I put in it as soon as I got it home. I also got it with the waist strap. I will post up come pictures when I get that set up. Thanks TB Crew, this is the greatest little bag ever!”
Clear Organizer Wallet clipped to a Handle Loop w/O-ring.
The Handle Loop is a loop of webbing that allows you to add a grab handle or wrist loop to many of our Organizer Pouches and Cubes. Its length is fully adjustable thanks to a clever slide part that provides enough friction to keep the Handle Loop snugged around your wrist: even if pushed to the end of the Handle Loop, it won’t come off. $3. In stock and ships within one business day. And available in two versions:
Handle Loop with Snaphook: This version, with a small-but-tough swivel snaphook, is designed to clip to a 3D Clear, Mesh, or Dyneema®/nylon Organizer Cube, a Side Effect, your keys, a knife, a multitool, or a flashlight.
Handle Loop with O-ring: June, our Vice President of Production, came up with this one — it has an O-ring instead of a snaphook at the end, so it’s designed to clip to any of our accessories that already have a snaphook, such as our Organizer Pouches.

The Side Effect is a bag that has evolved directly from user feedback (mostly from folks on our Forums). The original Side Effect was a small waist pack: you guys were cutting off the waist straps, attaching Key Straps, and envisioning new ways to use the bag which we hadn’t. Other mods — more O-rings, different label placement, a removable waist belt — were not DIY-able for you all. We decided it was time to catch up, and then some.
Side Effect. $40. Available for pre-order; ships by April 19th. Colors: Black/Wasabi, Aubergine/Wasabi, Navy/Iberian, Wasabi Dyneema/Wasabi, and Steel Dyneema/Wasabi. Discuss the Side Effect in our Forums.
