    Brain Bag and Two Brain Cells !

    Hello everyone - and greetings from the United Kingdom! I read a lot of rave reviews about Tom Bihn bags, but couldn't find a stockist here i the UK. So - I thought long and hard and took the plunge. I bought:
    A Brain Bag
    A Brain Cell (size 1)
    A Brain Cell (size 6T)
    A Snake Charmer
    A Freudian Slip
    They arrived today. Ordered on monday and delivered on Friday - not too bad at all!

    I had to pay the VAT on my bags but it was reasonable and the box was mine. I can only say that I am overjoyed with my purchase. The Brain Bag is rugged as are the brain cells. I set about fitting both brain cells into the two major compartments. The size 1 fitted perfectly into the back compartment. I changed the clips to the lower level in the front compartment and placed the second Brain Cell into it. It fitted like a glove. Whilst my Macbook Air 11" is a little small, it fits really nicely into the brain cell. My Macbook Pro 17" fits perfectly into the size 1.

    I then found that the space on top of the front pocket was a perfect spot for the snake charmer. I could also fit the freudian slip into the rear compartment without adjusting the outside straps.

    There is also run for my trusty A5 Filofax which I carry around with me all the time.

    I am working all over the place in the next few weeks and this will prove invaluable - both in the car and on the London Underground.

    Thank you to Tom Bihn - I somehow think that there may be some more purchases on the way.

    Congrats on the new bags and welcome here.
    I have 3 Brain Bags and seeing your pics makes me want a new one?

    I am sure you can stop anytime though!

    @AVservice - anytime, I can stop anytime. Ooooh look they do it in Steel and Wasabi. Stop it!

    @ Janine - I will give you a full inventory once I have sprayed the brain bag with Nikwax. I've prmused myself I'd do that. Then more photos - I promise

    @jeffmac Good to be here!
