    I took my first cruise (a Disney cruise) over Thanksgiving for a family reunion, and I was the only one in our group of 16 that didn't "check" my bags -- I used a Tri-Star and a Co-Pilot. (The trip...

    I used to travel with a Canon 7D and two large lenses for my work, and I carried all of my gear (along with a 13" MacBook in a Brain Cell) in a Smart Alec. But as small, mirrorless cameras got...

    Wait, do you mean the Co-Pilot fits inside that bottom pocket on the front of the Synapse 25? I'm stunned; the Synapse 25 must be larger than I imagined!

    Damn, I hate it whenever I miss a chance to vote for Forest!

    As a man, I used to prefer black bags because they didn't draw much attention to themselves. But as I've traveled more, I like having a...

    A Smart Alec was my gear bag for a good five years before I switched to a much smaller camera (micro 4/3) and, as a result, smaller Tom Bihn bags.

    In my Smart Alec, I regularly carried a 13"...

    I have a Packing Cube Backpack for both my Aeronaut and my Tri-Star. I love the utility of having an extra bag at my destination (just in case), and in my experience, it handles the packing cube...

    When I was first looking at the Co-Pilot, I remember wishing that it could hold a 13" MacBook, thinking that would make it perfect.

    But the more I've used the Co-Pilot, the more I've realized that...

    I originally bought the RFID Passport Pouch for the RFID protection, but I've noticed several additional benefits.

    First, it's SO convenient to connect to an O-ring in one of the bags, and have it...

    I have an Iberian Travel Tray that I keep and use at home, and a Solar Travel Tray that I use when I travel.

    It's such a simple bag/tray, and some may not find much use for it in their lives. But...

    I'm looking at the possibility of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro next month (just had the opportunity pop up unexpectedly), and I'm seriously considering a new Synapse 25 as my climbing bag. We'd be with a...

    This line made me very happy. :)

    The larger Synapse looks fantastic, but I still love my Smart Alec as my large backpack. But I may pick up a Synapse 19 this summer (hopefully in person at the Tom...

    There's one on the 13" Ristretto that I just received yesterday, located under the main flap at the top left corner of the seam. It's very subtle, and doesn't bother me in the slightest. (And it will...

    I have used my Smart Alec as my under-seat carryon (w/ my Aeronaut overhead) for the past five years or so, and while it doesn't always fit entirely under the seat in front of me, the part that...

    I miss carrying a proper pocket knife on my keychain. But after losing so many to the post-9/11 TSA, I stopped carrying them. (I'd usually forget to take them off my keychain before a flight.)

    I have one of the early models of the Aeronaut (perhaps my favorite bag of all time, in Hunter Green), and it doesn't have the compression straps. But I don't miss them at all, and don't think I...

    I'm excited to see the new bag, because one of the things that I love about Tom Bihn is that he doesn't "just" make a bag larger or smaller. He redesigns it so it becomes the best possible bag it can...

    I know this isn't a voting thread, but put me down as someone who likes Solar a lot, but doesn't really care for Wasabi. (Just one man's opinion, of course.)

    I would be very interested in a Co-Pilot type bag that could hold a 13-inch MacBook.

    It's posts like these from Darcy that are my absolute favorites in the Tom Bihn forums.

    I have owned Tom Bihn bags for about six years, and they've survived everything I thrown at them without...
