    My massive haul!

    My first TB order arrived this morning, and is everything I could wish for! (Not a great photo, but I had to snap it quick before my cat jumped out of the box and onto the goodies)

    From left to right and top to bottom:

    * 11" MBA cache and Synapse 19 (olive/steel)
    * Clear organiser cubes (plum and olive cordura)
    * Size 4 Stuff Sack (UV dyneema)
    * Travel Tray (wasabi dyneema)
    * Side Effect (olive/UV)
    * iPad Mini cache
    * Extra straps in olive and UV dyneema
    * Packing cube backpack + medium & small packing cubes for Tri-Star (steel dyneema)
    * Tri-Star (steel/UV) with Absolute Strap + selection of organiser pouches (clear and cordura)

    Now I just need somewhere to go :)

    And you have plenty of time with play with your new stuff before you actually go somewhere!
    The stockpile keeps growing...I'm in serious trouble.

    A truly massive and gorgeous haul, scribe! Now you can practice pack for a variety of trips as you decide what the maiden voyage will be! I agree with snowbot that we'd love to see a picture of your kitty with the new goodies, too!

    Thanks, everyone!

    Here she is in the emptied box. Sorry it's a bit blurry - she really didn't want to stay in there, once I started trying to photograph her!

    I went out and bought some knitting supplies today, so I suspect there's going to be some Yarn Stuff Sacks and a Tool Pouch in my future. The Size 4 Stuff Sack is doing pretty well for the time being, though!

    Actually I already know (if you discount taking the Synapse 19 to work with me on Monday). In April I'm flying up to Glasgow via EasyJet, whose draconian carry-on restrictions were what led me to Tom Bihn in the first place. The Tri-Star should easily meet their standards, providing I don't pack it too full - and I'm only going for a weekend so that won't be difficult!

    You're welcome! In fact I just noticed that my kitty has this rather cool steel/wasabi colour scheme going on herself :)

    (Damn! Now I'm going to want a steel/wasabi bag to match...)
