    Traveling with 4 Tom Bihn bags

    OK, so this picture can't touch Maverick's (it was taken with my phone), but these are the bags my wife and I took on a 5-day Thanksgiving trip (by car) from Chicago to the east coast: two Aeronauts, my Synapse, and her Side Effect. Since we were driving and not flying, space wasn't so much of an issue, but the bags performed beautifully, as always. The more I use the Synapse, the more I'm amazed at how much it will hold while still retaining a relatively sleek profile.

    I shouldn't have looked! Now I want a Synapse!
    I love my Aeronaut, Tri-Star, Western Flyer, Cadet 15 Brain Cell, Imago, Medium Cafe Bag (daily bag), Swift, Side Effect and accessories (snake charmer, packing cubes, stuff sacks, pouches, lights, keystraps, etc.) Eagerly awaiting trays and Canine Citizens! Picture to come soon.

    Jenne, the Synapse is a very nice bag if you like backpacks. (You don't list any in your sig.) Mine arrived a few weeks ago. It turned out to be more squared-off (rather than teardrop-shaped) than the product page pictures indicate—good. Also good: If not stuffed to the gills, it's flatter than in the product page pictures. Quite a nice bag. Mine is black, so the zippers don't stand out—less busy-looking (it's got a LOT of zippers). The shallow pocket (under the water bottle pocket) is handy for quick access without having to fish around (for hand balm, cough drops, etc.).

    gmich,

    Any family photos with everyone wearing their bags? I love photos where you get to see them being "applied".

    Thanks for sharing,

    The Mountain Man

    Mtn Man,

    I've posted several photos previously of the bags in use. I don't have time to link to all the posts right now, but there are various photos of us with the two Aeronauts, an Imago, a Side Effect, and a Ristretto for Netbooks. I'll probably get one of the Synapse in action soon.

    Thanks, gmich. I just looked up threads you started by checking out your username. I found some neat pictures.

    Thanks for this info! I do actually like backpacks (I have a Victorinox and an Ogio) and I really like the look of the Synapse in action! I'll have to mull it over, because I'm also considering the Ristretto for Netbooks.
