    No matter what bag I'm using for the exterior I usually bring a travel tray to coral the small bits like iPhone and the cqpc or 3-d cube for toiletries.

    @eWalker Just curious, if your order hasn't shipped yet, how can you be sure that your signature line is correct?

    I am a strict one bag person... all my (empty) Tom Bihn bags and accessories still fit on my Aeronaut 45!
    I enjoyed reading your post listing all the items that are on order!

    @moriond I didn't list all the items I ordered for me... I listed only the items I considered ETC.

    I orderd only three bags, one is a Balistic A45, a Dyneema CP and a Dyneema SE All the other items are PC, cubes, pouches, sacks and other small items.

    But I ordered a larger then usual quantity of pc to experiment on all possible packing configurations for the A45.

    PCSB alone I ordered 6!

    I expect to have lots of fun mixing and matching all this to make my brand new project 333 color coordinated capsule wardrobe fit on the A45 and A30!

    I am sure you may guess from were came all those ideas!

    I'm up to 83 in the space of 3 months if you include backorders, but that's across 10 separate orders, some of which I later amalgamated to save shipping. Also it includes all accessories and parts, e.g. 6 double carabiners (because they're only $1 each and amazingly useful), and freebies such as the yarn stuff sack that you get with a Swift.

    Like the hobbits at Bilbo's birthday party, I'm now reduced to "filling in the corners", i.e. looking out for the perfect items to complete my collection rather than manically buying anything that looks useful
    Collections:
    Work EDC: SE + S19 (summer); SE + SA (winter)
    Leisure: some combination of SE/SCB/MCB/Swift/LS/FJN/DLBC/Imago/SSB
    Travel: WF + Pilot/DLBP + SE/SCB or SA + SE/SCB
    General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
    Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
    Hoping for: FJN for iPad Mini + Moleskine; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!

    Hee hee! I love that description! That's where I'm at, too. I was waiting for that Aeronaut in Nordic/Solar, but now that that life wish is fulfilled, it's all about "filling in the corners". When I brought home my last order, I laid it all out on the bed, and said to my husband, who was reading a book in our bedroom chair, "Well, I think I've done it. No matter what the trip, I think I now have the Tom Bihn bag selection that I need. If we had to drop everything and go to Thailand for two weeks, I could pack up and be ready to go in an hour."

    He laughed. "Well that's a relief."
    Seriously, like, so much Nordic Dyneema I don't even know what to do with myself anymore. They will bury me in it. "Where's Mom's urn? WHERE DID YOU GUYS PUT THE SYNAPSE 19 WITH MOM'S ASHES?"

    LOL! I ordered 6 double carabiners too!

    I am afraid that if I don't order now and later I find that I want/need something else I will not be able to get it in time for my next trip or may not be available at all, so I ordered all items that I may need.

    When they arrive I will check what is really needed and all the surplus (if any!) will find great homes with my light travellers friends!

    @scribe Does that mean that we should all expect there to be mathoms?

    P.S. I'm planning to show up if any of the birthday party mathoms are Tom Bihn accessories.

    @Hollie That's is my ultimate goal!

    But to not overdue I limited myself to 5 bags: Balistic A45, Balistic A30, Dyneema CP, Balistic SE and Dyneema SE.

    The only permissible exceptions are if one of the June surprises is a small sling bag or if I go hiking on the Camino de Santiago! http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Way_of_St._James

    5 bags, only?! Wow! I think it's incredible that you can do that! I read this and then mentally ran down a list of what my top 5 bags would be, if I was cornered by some....uhhh.....you know, bag pirates or something, and told, "You can only keep 5! The rest are mine! Arrrr!" It's like one of those stuck-on-a-deserted-island sorts of exercises.

    In the unlikely case of bag pirates and/or deserted island, I'd keep:

    Smart Alec (nordic/steel)
    Side Effect (nordic/solar)
    Aeronaut (nordic/solar)
    LCB (nodic/solar)
    Synapse 25 (nordic/solar)

    But thankfully I fear neither bag pirates nor lost closet space.

    So far I am looking only at bags and accessories for my travel set...

    I am afraid of what will happen after that! The enabling power of the collective mind of TB Forum is tremendous!
