    Great photos throughout this thread. Nice to see people wearing the packs, as well as comparison images.

    He's cute, and it was very kind of him to model my Daylight Backpack. But let's be clear here - it is my Daylight Backpack. I may let him use it. I may even carry some of his things in it. But it's mine. It came to me... My precious... :)

    Just a thought - the front interior of the Daylight Backpack is lined with 420d Parapack. The back, however, isn't. Totally conjecture on my part, but I think the front may be lined to help the Daylight Backpack keep its shape. I would love to see the back lined as well - so that the lower interior pocket could then perhaps be stitched to the lining rather than to the back fabric of the Daylight Backpack - with the result that that stitching would not be visible on the outside. Would that be possible?

    I'm sure it's with good reason that Tom did not line the back. But I thought I'd put the thought out there anyhow...

    Is this the little guy who was in a couple of your old bag videos?

    Interesting. People rarely take pictures of the back of the bags. Is there a lot of visible stitching on the back panel?

    Yes, same little big guy.

    It's a straight line across the back, perhaps two-thirds of the way down.

    I completely understand why they do this.

    This is a serious concern for Amtrak. So much so, that they have discussed blocking access to the Tom Bihn website in general!

    They are concerned that if even one person starts looking at Tom Bihn bags using the Amtrak WiFi service, word about their amazing bags will spread like wildfire across the train - and everyone on the train might start connecting to their WiFi service in order to place orders on the Tom Bihn website, and their WiFi service won't be able to take the load!

    So to prevent their WiFi service from collapsing, they invoked the content filter.

    I did notice that when I put a very full side effect in the top pouch, the back of the backpack did bulge out slightly above the stitched lines. Maybe the stitching that goes all the way through the back reinforces the support for the top pouch? That is a guess only, since I seem to be better at acquiring bags than building bags. :)

    Thanks! I'm not really a backpack person either - I tend to limit use to the gym etc, but these little packs are somehow quite a different proposition. I think the colours in my pic look cleaner and less intense than they are in "person" (nothing wrong with personifying a TB bag, is there?). French Blue is deeper and more complex than it appears, burnt orange is not as bright as it looks (in some light it almost looks terracotta), and navy is richer than it looks in the shot. And I have to correct an error - I said the Synapse was Sapphire, but of course it's indigo. Post updated.

    Actually, I get now why the front interior is lined with 420d Parapack - there is a diagonal zippered pocket in the front. Sorry, I'm a little slow today. :)
