Planning a trip around the world? Heading to South America for a few months? Europe for a year? For those about to head out on an adventure and are looking for a Tom Bihn pack, I wanted to make a post that provided a few resources and linked to people who have done just that! Most links include packing lists which can be helpful for your own planning as well.

    I’m still using my trusty Tom Bihn Synapse in Dyneema. I’ve never before used a backpack that reflects such a highly developed understanding of travel. The compartments are perfectly laid out and sized so that they never encroach on each other, even when stuffed.”
