I'm a bag addict from way back; I think it's fine to judge how cool someone is by the bag they carry, and I ain't talking Prada :) Trying to cure my overpacking tendencies by immersing myself in the goodness that is TB!

Historymeg liked post by Yoda Sloth On thread : Co-Pilot shoulder strap chemical smell - your experience?
No worries - we all have different views of bag "features". For some people, I am sure it feels insecure. But, for me, I like it! I will discover that I have slipped my iPad, notebook, several...

Historymeg liked post by bchaplin On thread : The Orphaned Smart Alec

During our one week stay in Curacao we used the Black Dyneema shop bag to carry our grocery and market goods

Historymeg liked post by taminca On thread : Lesson Learned
Ordering a TB bag -- ANY TB bag -- to "try it out and see if I like it" is a doomed strategy.
