REQ: Briefcase/shoulder bag photos & videos
It's both informative and fun to visit this forum and see the images and video of people using and wearing their Tom Bihn luggage (Aeronaut, Tri-star), backpacks and cafe bags, but there is something missing. I do not see alot of videos for Bihn's other shoulder bags, such as the briefcases and other larger messenger bags.
I would like to see users of Bihn breifcases and larger messenger bags sound off, strut their stuff and show the world their Bihn wares. Where have you gone with these bags? How do you wear them? Which straps do you use? How much do you carry in your favorite bag?
hi mountain man,
here is a video of the empire builder briefcase.
here is a video of the imago messenger bag.
here is a video of the id messenger bag.
here is a video of the ego messenger bag.
here is a video of the checkpoint flyer.
i carry the ego messenger bag with the absolute shoulder strap. given the choice, i always prefer the absolute shoulder strap for its unparalleled comfort, specially with heavier loads.
my wife has just started carrying the imago, and she absolutely loves it! she said she wanted a black bag that wasn't too big or too deep with some organizational pockets, and the 1050d ballistic nylon black/black/wasabi imago was a perfect fit.
is there anything else in particular you're looking for?
The videos you produce are typically the best, because you "unpack" them and thus show what you can/would carry in them. Thanks for the links, but I had already watched the linked videos on the ID, Empire Builder and Checkpoint Flyer. I would love to see if anyone has a Super Ego, or an Empire Builder, or Zephyr, or Checkpoint Flyer they might like to demonsrate/unpack "Maverick"-style. Seeing these videos helps me understand what these various bags are capable of holding, and how people would employ them in a practical sense. They are very educational. This will eventually help me decide on my own purchasing decisions.
I will eagerly await your follow-up videos on the Q-AM Strap and "Mrs. Maverick's" Imago. Thank you again.

There really aren't any videos out there that are done the way that maverick does them, but since you're asking about other bags, like the Super-Ego, and since you're considering many different models in your Thinking about purchasing…something thread, here are some other links to check:
