    Yes, the 3.5" cords came with my new TS from Tom Bihn. I would love to get longer ones, preferably around 6".

    Wait just a minute! Are you saying navy and black don't match??

    I know that is an option, but I could never bring myself to purposely mutilate my new TB bag! ;) I will probably just go buy some cord myself and use the TB plastic parts.

    Yes joiedwards, take this great advice from Katy, she's my bag twin and she knows best! ;) I can't wait to take my new TS on a trip. I'm flying to Philly on Sunday night for a 2-day business trip....

    I finally got my TS today and I see no possible way to loop the cord zipper pulls as shown in the pics from moriond or Lani. There is simply not enough cord....

    I just did a 5-minute test pack in the Tri-Star for a 3-4 day business trip, and I honestly have to say I'm amazed at how much this bag holds! It was like a speed pack just to prove it to myself and...

    Hmmm, actually those look like they could be the old style cord pulls. And, I think the Tri-Star metal zipper pulls might be a little longer. The Co-Pilot zipper pulls in your pic look somewhat short...

    Borrowing an idea from another bag I have, I was thinking if TB made the actual cords for the pulls a little longer, they could be laced through the zippers as shown in the pics. This would not only...

    I would highly recommend a Vapur water bottle. It folds flat and rolls up very small when empty. Fits in just about any small zipper pocket.

    And....They are made in USA! :)

    Thanks kmcg -- very interesting thread! I'm still paranoid that I will buy the TS and then find out it doesn't hold everything I need. Of course, then I would be forced to purchase the Aeronaut...
