OK, I finally did it.
After much browsing of tombihn.com, countless viewings of Maverick's videos, several threads pestering forum members, a few emails to Tom Bihn HQ, and a couple of disappointments as preferred items went out of stock, I have finally pulled the trigger and placed my first Tom Bihn order.
I'm ready for someone to teach me the secret handshake now :-)
I may have added a few too many pouches to the list, but given the cost of shipping to Australia I figured I may as well add a few extra. Better to have too many than too few. Mind you, if I do want some more, I'll get them shipped to Canada ready for my visit later this year.
I've ended up going for 2 cafe bags (large & medium - I may end up selling one once I've settled on a preference), wallet in cork (which means a little wait), side effect, and a bunch of clear and cordura pouches (at least one in each size).
Yippee! New bags. I'm rather excited.
