    "What? The bags?"

    "Yeah, instead of 'bags' I'm going to call them 'Tom Bihns'."

    "Honey, you realize Tom Bihn is an actual person, right? He's the person who originally designed these bags, the company that makes these bags belongs to him. His name doesn't mean 'bag'. He's a human being."

    "Oh I just thought that was the name of, like, a kind of bag."

    I laughed so hard I almost dropped my armful of Nordic.
    Hollie, a visit to the mothership is in order! :)

    I went ahead and bought a Large Nordic Shop Bag, and a Small Solar Shop Bag. I don't have a single Shop Bag, so this will be fun to try, and I grabbed the Solar because that's my second favorite Dyneema color and it's almost gone, too. :) Also this way I can tell the large and small shop bags apart easily. Many thanks to my hubby, who agreed to this just days after me making "My final Nordic order, I SWEAR!"
    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?"

    Hollie,

    Wise move!

    But, I forgot to tell u about the Shop bag warning label,

    "Beware, this bag may multiply in the same or different colors over time"

    :-/

    100% true about the shop bag's replication ability (like tribbles!). But after seeing Hollie's Nordic Family Photo, and feeling the 200d on this bag, I decided to exchange my new UV & Iberian for Nordics. I have 2 L, 1 S Nordic & a black already and the 400d is supreme. Kroger is regularly astounded as I easily carry out dozens of Propel bottles in my Shop Bags. Ill keep one pair of Iberian because the 200d has its use in folding up easy within a pack but for heavy lifting I'm sticking with the 400 colors.

    Thanks Hollie for reminding me I should stick with old faithful rather than span the rainbow. You are going to love your Shop Bags and wonder how you ever lived without them. Mr. Bihn nailed the design on this one.

    Oh look how pretty! So let's see....if I have a Solar and a Nordic, does that mean in a little while I'll have a Wasabi?

    Yeah, that's why I finally went ahead and got one. I'd had the shop bag as a low-priority item because I already have a ridiculous number of reusable shopping bags, in cotton, canvas, hemp, and nylon. But then......last of the Nordic and Solar.....I just had to go for it. I'm curious if mine will replicate the way Trailhiker's have.

    Should a large shop bag be my #10?! (hint: there is one 'stowaway' in the photos)

    Yes, I tied it to the WF with the 5/8 strap.

    Waah! Missed the boat on those in 400d :( I bet we all get the badge of regret at some point for missing a run of color combo or fabrics, right?

    Latest theory: Nordic is being phased out b/c DEA agents have been sniffing about the Tom Bihn factory.
