The Utility Tote
First, the Utility Tote has been redesigned and it's better than ever. It's one of the simplest Tom Bihn bags but it's also one of my personal favorites. Sometimes I just have a lot of extra junk to bring to work (props for photography, books for people to borrow, clothing to return, etc.) and I grab my Utility Tote, put it all in, and go.
It's the first bag available in the two new colors we've added to our palette: Kelly Green and Navy Blue.
It now has a much-requested interior zippered pocket. The pocket is made out of Dyneema®, a ripstop fabric that you'll be seeing on more and more products (it is currently also used on the ID bag) because of its strength and light weight.
The handles are made with the same Poron® foam we use in the Empire Builder and LUX handles. In side-by-side drop weight tests, Poron® materials outperformed vinyl sponge, neoprene sponge, sponge rubber, latex foam and other materials.
Second, pictures of all available color combinations aren't available yet, but we do have pictures on the Utility Tote page that show the amount of stuff that the Utility Tote can hold, what the inside of the bag looks like, and a close-up of the zippered pocket.
What do you think of the redesigned Utility Tote? What do you think of the pictures -- are these pictures you'd want to see of every product?
