    Since you have stress fractures, too, as well as all the soft tissue damage, you might want to ask your doctor (or even better, your physiotherapist) about supplements to aid in bone healing and...

    Thanks for your kind words. I'm doing very much better, and have even largely ditched my cane except when I have uneven pavements to cope with. I still do physical therapy exercises every day. (oh,...

    One more thing, ncb4--leg injuries take a longer time to heal than you might guess, since you're working against gravity. Make sure you elevate your leg as much as you can, because swelling can cause...

    Best wishes on your recovery, ncb4! I am a bit more than two years out from a serious leg injury that left me non-weight-bearing for four months, and believe me, I fully understand how terrific a...
  5. DIY mini-travel containers for liquids and gels

    For me, the trickiest part of one-bag living is getting all the liquids and gels I want into that darned baggie. This is especially true when I'm going to be on the road and traveling for a few...

    One caveat--the more you work on developing an efficient packing plan to one-bag it, the greater the chances that the Tristar will bulge and make getting it underseat a challenge. This is especially...

    One thing to think about in constructing a layered approach--does the item continue to keep you warm even when wet? Wool (and to a somewhat lesser extent, silk) are superb at this. Polyester is much...

    On whether the Imago is gender-coded...

    I'm female and I gush over mine; my daughter expressed Imago-envy, and so got my back-up Imago. So, 2 for 2, on it being female-skewed. Though my husband...

    Interesting TomBihn sighting today. I was getting my hair cut and the customer in the next chair had a bag that for a second I thought was a rip-off of a medium Café bag. But no, just a well-seasoned...

    I would so love to see an updated Imago, or even a re-introduced retro Imago. There just isn't another bag in the TB lineup that substitutes for it. The Ristretto is a great bag, but it's really...

    I pack an extra large lightweight t-shirt (the giveaway ones from baseball games work fine), which comes halfway to my knees. If it's warm, that's my sleep-shirt (as well as my workout shirt). If...

    The Imago is perfect EDC and airplane 'personal item.' I haven't been without one at my side since their first introduction. My steel, cork, wasabi one is retired now (cork started falling apart...

    Greasy stains (and ballpoint pen, for that matter) can be taken care of with Goop. It's a very mild but effective grease cutter designed to be a hand soap for folks that break engines down and get...

    Harrods is well worth a visit even if you don't buy anything to wear. (Though their scarves could tempt you...) But the building itself is a Grande Dame of retail architecture, and the food hall has...

    I don't think the passport pouch is designed to substitute for a hidden moneybelt. It is bulkier and stiffer than the typical neck or waist pouch made for that use. I use mine mostly in the airport,...

    Of all my Tom Bihn items, I think the Travel Tray is the most unique and maybe the most useful. It's superb, of course, for its named purpose--corralling bits and pieces during travel, both at...

    If it is the same Cordura that was used a while back for café bags, then no, it has a pronounced greenish note. Actually, I thought it was lovely, but if you don't care for green, you probably...

    Great news, scribe! I was appalled to see that someone would try to palm off the damaged Imago in that fashion. My own steel-cork Imago has some damage to the cork facing--from a life of very hard...
