    Today is the day my 1st Tom Bihn Bag arrives

    I'm new to the forum and Tom Bihn. The day has finally come for the arrival of my first Tom Bihn bag. I've ordered a Brain Bag (with brain cell, Freudian slip and snake charmer) along with an Aeronaut (with packing cubes). I went back and forth for 2 months on the Tristar and Aeronaut but liked the idea of one big compartment. I'm hoping I made the right decision. Can anyone tell me if there are O-rings in the Brain Bag or Aeronaut for pouches to attach to?

    Congratulations! Dh's Brain Bag has 3 o-rings that I counted, One in the front top, and each of the main compartments. I believe that the Aeronaut has them too, I just cannot confirm how many or where they are.

    I have an older Aeronaut, but I can confirm that there is at least one o-ring in the end slash pocket.

    My bags arrived yesterday. My Aeronaut has 6 o-rings - 1 in each side compartment, 1 in the small pocket on the side with the key chain, 2 in the main compartment and 1 in the zippered compartment on the main flap. The Brain Bag also has 3 - 1 in each of the 2 main compartments and 1 with the key chain in the small top front pocket. Time to get some pouches...

    Here are some belated pics of my Brain Bag and Aeronaut. Just got back from a 2-week family vacation and used these 2 bags as my only luggage and they were perfect. I can't say enough about the Brain Bag - for me it's the perfect backpack. With the compression straps on the sides, you can really make it pretty small. I use it everyday for work. Some days I have to haul the labtop (with a brain cell) and I can make the pack as big as I need it. Other days I travel pretty light, and it crunches down perfectly. I'm very particular about backpacks and have gone through several other packs from several makers, each one always falling short in some way (i.e., too big or too small, not enough organization, dedicated lab top compartments or no labtop compartment, etc...). The Brain Bag is perfect for me. I was initially concerned that it didn't have enough pockets for organization, but with the use of a Freudian Slip and a couple of pouches, I truly have more organization than I need. If you are on the fence about buying it (like I was), do it and don't look back. You won't be sorry. I almost forgot the best part - the construction. It is the highest quality backpack I've ever purchased, hands down. Same with the Aeronaut in terms of luggage. I also got my wife a Large Cafe bag and she loves it as well and raves about the quality. These bags are definitely built to last.

    Here are a few picks of my Brain Bag and Aeronaut and showing the O-rings:
