    I really like bags and I have tons of them - accumulated in my pre-TB days. But the organization through O rings plus pouches and of course the quality of TB bags - got me hooked. I started with a dyneema Synapse 19 (when it was just called Synapse) and pouches. As I say (and some folks here) resistance is futile so now I have a collection of TB items. I need to get rid of most of my pre TB bags before I get additional TB bags though.
    Black Dyneema/Wasabi Co-Pilot (EDC), Steel Dyneema/Steel Dyneema Large Café Bag (EDC substitute), Black Dyneema PCSB (weekend day bag), Black Dyneema/Wasabi Aeronaut 45 (Travel), Steel Ballistic/Solar Western Flyer (Travel), Iberian Dyneema PCBP (WF), Black Dyneema PCBP (Aeronaut), Steel Dyneema PCSB, Solar SE, assortment of pouches.

    I'm with you on that one. Except it's not working for me. All the ones I want to get rid of are sitting Ina pile and I keep buying more TB stuff!

    Lol, I'm in the same boat, but a lot of those other bags don't seem to be going anywhere. I've decided to justify it by how different they are from TB, and sticking with only my other 2 favorite brands and a set of rolling suitcases.

    My first and currently only TB bag is my Synapse 19, which I got for the combination of size and organization. At my short height, it was hard to find a properly sized pack that could still be organized properly. Now I am in love with the quality and comfort and am already looking forward to figuring out what I can order next.

    One more thing: I like the company's business practices. It's been a significant factor in making me a repeat customer. I like TB's transparency and candour (out of dyneema? They tell us straight!), and how savvily the company is run-- no sponsored events, no dubious "I donate 25% of profits to charity" claims with the attendant accountability issues, etc. Neither do I feel cheated the way I did when I bought e.g. Gucci sunglasses. (They are nice sunnies, though. I still wear them.) Just solid bag-making, happy customers, and employees who have a life. A win-win for all parties.

    I really hope I'm not wrong about the company! Please continue to do what you do.

    P.S.: Also loving the adjustable closure on the Swift/LS. While it's not been necessary for me so far, I think it's subtle and aesthetic. Same with the cache on rails systems-- so simple, yet so clever. Can't wait to junk off my current lappy case for the vertical 4Z!

    I agree with @adalangdon.
    I am grateful that my contribution (purchase of TB's Product) does not just solely on TB's design and practically, but also the humanity-value that the Company choose to uphold - be it whether its Customer, its Crews (Employees), its Management and Operation. These humanity value incorporated into all parts of Tom Bihn. I does not just feel great carrying TB bag everyday, but also feel terribly awesome and motivated by its humanity value - to the point that shall anyone have interest with what I am carrying, (especially my known friends) I would bombard them with TB Products and its Humanity Value! Lol.

    I have always be amaze with Entrepreneur being persistence, staying honest and truth to its initial dream - making ideas work, focus on quality and customer service.
    It is not about making billion dollar revenue, but a self-accomplishment to hear/see others' excitement/happy about the workmanship, products and services.

    By the way, @adalangdon,
    Could you enlighten more about the Adjustable Closure of the Swift?
    I kinda wish to get a Swift for my Wife, without her knowing. But she prefer a zippable/sealable main compartment to prevent prying eyes/busy-body (kepo) or worst, theft.
