Thank you guys! A fantastic surprise!!! Arrived back from a difficult few days at the in-laws and now feel much more 'in the festive spirit'... :)
So my girlfriend just told me I got a package from Tom Bihn. Unfortunately, I just left on a 2 week trip to visit my folks. I was pretty confused, as I couldn't remember ordering anything. Came on the forum and found this thread, which was a pleasant surprise. What other company sends its customers Christmas presents?! It's nice to know I'll have a present waiting for me when I get back. Thanks! You guys are the best! (I hope the cookie is still there when I get back... I doubt it)
Like gmich said, I'll keep trying to get everyone I know to try out Tom Bihn (still trying to convert my girlfriend and my parents).
Thanks tom bihn ;p
Already had some of the same on xmas list for my family to get me more ;p
Happy about getting another sticker too--They look very cool ;p
Thanks everyone at Tom Bihn!!
I really like the ultrasuede, I use it to line all the gadget bags I make, but to have a large accessory bag in it is sweet! Especially in a festive red color.
The cookie was very tasty too, Happy Holidays.
I linked a couple of snaps of this special gift :-)
I'm curious how you get your name on the lists for this coolness??
hello everyone at tom bihn!
i just returned from a trip and was catching up on my tom bihn forum reading when i saw this thread. i went and looked at my pile of mail and found a box from tom bihn! you guys are great, and i love the color and feel of the Ultrasuede® pouch! thank you guys so much and happy holidays!
I too, would like to add my sincere thanks for this gift. I tell everyone I know about how cool Tom Bihn is, and this will only reinforce that belief. You guys are the best!
What is the likelihood of any of these prototype ultrasuede pouches being available at the Seattle store (I'm a local boy)?
Just thought I'd ask since I've loved the ultrasuede pockets in my ID from day one...
Darcy - To follow up -- When do you expect the pouches to be available for general purchase for those of us who live about as far away from Seattle as you can get and still live in the lower 48? While I did not receive a pouch, a few years back I purchased a keyboard cover for my Mac from y'all which is made from ultrasuede and it's great stuff. I look forward to being able to get buy some pouches for carrying around some electronics.
I'm not sure if we will make the Ultrasuede pouch an item that's available for purchase. But we can, and if enough people request them, we will.
Who receives the pouches? It's not an exact science, but people who post on the forums and have also placed an order with us (so we have their address) are most likely to receive a pouch. People who receive a gift one year might not receive one the next and people who don't receive a gift this year might receive one the next, or next year maybe we'll make a large charitable contribution instead.
Hmm, looks interesting... is the ultrasuede on the inside, outside, or both?
